Antifa has been fairly quiet for the past few months, after their failed “Day of Anarchy” last November. They haven’t gone away, however, and they have been found at a major Texas university spreading their gospel of anger and violence.
A student-led Antifa group is using a sneaky way to get on campus and mobilize students at one of America’s biggest universities.
An Antifa group called Revolutionary Student Front is offering “self-defense classes” at the University of Texas at Austin, a tactic they had used before to organize students and stage protests.
Antifa has some work to do, after they announced plans to march in nearly two dozen cities last November in an attempt to force President Trump from office. The protests failed miserably, and were not well-attended, sending the movement into a tailspin that sent them out of public view.
Most of last year saw Antifa grabbing headlines on a daily basis, as they staged protests against conservative speakers on college campuses and led the charge to remove confederate statues from public places.
University of Texas at Austin’s Revolutionary Student Front group tweeted it would resume “weekly self-defense classes.” It posted a photo of communist soldiers along with its advertisement.
“Our first class is going to be hosted at UT on Saturday at 1:00 PM on the green space by the turtle pond,” the group said. “Dress in comfortable workout clothes (high for the day is 54°) and bring some water!”
However, it appears the student group promotes actions surpassing mere self-defense.
“Bricks belong best thrown at pig heads!” the Revolutionary Student Front said in October.
The organization also believes “white supremacy is at the heart of American values.”
Revolutionary Student Front describes itself as “an organization for revolutionary anti-capitalist students in Austin, Texas.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Revolutionary Student Front but received no comment in time for press. TheDCNF also contacted a student who indicated interest in the class, but she declined to comment upon being denied compensation for her comment.
