This chapter discusses the Silver Valley Redneck Revolt that traveled to Charlottesville to participate in the August 12 rally. It explains that the Redneck Revolt is a national movement that was founded in 2016 as an anti-racist and anti-fascist community defense formation. It also discloses that the Redneck Revolt is a part of the “armed left” that emphasizes being armed in defense of leftist groups that seek to counter supremacist groups like the alt-right or the Ku Klux Klan. The chapter analyzes the Redneck Revolt's use of the term “redneck,” which was a point of pride in a deliberate effort to counter the perceived views of the elites. It mentions Dwayne E. Dixon, a member of Redneck Revolt who defied traditional stereotypes.

Keywords:   Silver Valley Redneck Revolt, anti-racist community, anti-fascist community, supremacist groups, alt-right, Dwayne E. Dixon
