A University of Texas at Austin Antifa student group vandalized a water fountain with: “organizing women for revolutionary violence” Thursday.
The Revolutionary Student Front at UT Austin posted photos of the red-dyed fountain, along with a message reading “this is the blood of survivors [who] UT ignores” — a sickle and hammer accompanied — Far Left Watch reported. RSF previously said, “bricks belong best thrown at pig heads.”
“The blood of women & all survivors flow from the fountains of UT,” the Antifa group said. “On International Working Women’s Day, we must stress the necessity of organizing women for revolutionary violence against the capitalist institutions that uphold patriarchy & protect abusers like Richard Morrisett.”

Morrisett, a UT Austin pharmacy professor, pleaded guilty to strangling his girlfriend in May 2016, as well as abusing her subsequently in July 2016 and violating a restraining order, The Daily Texan reported.
The Revolutionary Student Front, which incited violence against cops, also hosts weekly self-defense classes. It also conducted a six-month health program to “politicize” students with “mental illnesses.”
Revolutionary Student Front is not a registered student group at the school and is “not affiliated” with it, UT Austin spokesman J.B. Bird said while speaking with The Daily Caller News Foundation in February.
“The university is continuing to actively investigate the vandalism of university property that occurred overnight at the Littlefield fountain,” Bird told TheDCNF.
“The university took Dr. Morrisett’s actions very seriously, investigating them in 2016,” the spokesman added. “The university is monitoring him during probation to make sure he meets all the conditions and is not accused of other criminal behavior. In light of this incident, UT Austin’s president, Greg Fenves, instituted a policy review as of Jan. 26, that is taking place now, to make the relevant UT Austin policies ‘clearer and stronger’ and ‘to explicitly define conduct that is subject to discipline, including possible termination, regardless of whether it occurs on or off campus.’”
The Revolutionary Student Front did not respond to TheDCNF’s comment request.
