There are other weird things. Like they doxxed some goofy antifa type guy (not even a leftist, just some liberal prison guard who didn't like right wingers) who had claimed to have been feeding info to the feds on right wingers to try and push the cops into going after the right wingers, which seems like a really stupid thing to do if you ask me. Maybe the cops didn't like getting played like that. They dropped that on Christmas Day but there were also right-wing groups in the area who were gloating (I saw this) in the days leading up to it talking about a "Christmas surprise" and then gloating when the doxx dropped, and those right wingers definitely work with cops, and they had advance notice of what the Red Guards were about to do so uhhhhhh.
Now speaking of those right-wing groups, let me tell you about one activist involved with them. His name is Christopher Ritchie, the bald leathery-skinned guy in the photo. He went to Charlottesville on the Nazi side. You could say he's more in the InfoWars crowd in Austin but I remember watching his livestreamed video of Cville where he commented on a guy with a Hitler t-shirt that he had a "nice shirt, brother!" He had a drug problem but is apparently clean now. Spent some time in prison. He's way down on the totem pole of far right activism and is mostly known for harassing left-wing protests with a camera trying to provoke. Everyone in Austin who is involved in protesting and so forth is familiar with him.
Anyways, Red Guards messed his apartment up by splashing a ton of red paint on the exterior and then painting threatening messages on the sidewalk. He was so pissed he organized a little rally (see pic) against the left. Some anarchists showed up to "counter" (dumb) but no Red Guards showed. Then I heard that feds a few days later went around knocking on doors of anarchists and harassing them. If you ask me the whole thing was a setup / kayfabe conflict.
Ritchie is back in the news recently because he showed up a DSA no-war-with-Iran demo and was harassing them with his camera. The DSA told him to bug off and he apparently did, or the cops moved him away, and immediately the Red Guards jumped on it and claimed the DSA are somehow "social fascists" because they didn't immediately escalate to violence in response in Ritchie's provocations, which therefore retroactively justifies the Red Guards harassing DSA and physically accosting a DSA-aligned candidate for Congress. See how this works? Like I said this is circumstantial evidence but it feels like state police in Texas trying to apply pressure on the organized left from multiple directions. You get harassed by the right and then harassed by the "left" for not falling for the right-wing bait.
