the red army is this for commy socialists...just asking not being a dick...because of the name

Historically, virtually all communist militarized forces have used "red" in it's title, thus denoting their communist origins.  This begins IIRC back in 1917 when the Bolsheviks (red flag for communist revolution) took over the Russian government and began their civil war (Red against White armies) and is pretty much accepted as such around the world.  I don't think you'll have much luck getting American patriots to join a "Red Army" of any kind.  Antifa might line up to join.  May I suggest Continental Army of (your state/county etc.) as a name?

Thanks for your suggestion. I was aware "The Red Army" had been used as a nickname for the Workers Party in the early 1900s, I just didn't believe it was universally understood that it was theirs alone. 

 

Red is also the color used by right-wing and Republican supporters. Not to mention  the half of our flag is red.

 

However, we'd hate to confuse anyone so we'll be using "The Free Army" going forward.

 

Thanks for your contribution, have a wonderful day...
