Dwayne Dixon, a leader of the left-wing Redneck Revolt militia group, admitted to chasing Charlottesville driver James Fields with a rifle shortly before Fields allegedly crashed into a group of protesters, killing Heather Heyer, on August 12, 2017.
Why did Dixon chase Fields before the crash? Big League Politics asked Dixon about this on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where Dixon works as a cultural anthropology professor.
The interview quickly went haywire, with Dixon attacking our cameraman and calling the police to report on “an intruder” on the public college campus:
“I take perverse pleasure in having carried this Spike’s lower in the defense of Justice Park on August 12th. I used this rifle to chase off James Fields from our block of 4th St before he attacked the marchers to the south. Spike’s needs a good lesson in ethics and antifascism,” Dixon stated in a Facebook post reported by Cassandra Fairbanks of the Gateway Pundit.
Big League Politics reported on August 14 that Fields’ car was “attacked,” citing eyewitnesses from the scene who did not mention Dixon or his involvement at that time:
