Dangerous: A University of Texas professor who received numerous threats from antifa was found dead in his home last Thursday.
The cause of the death is still under investigation, reports Zero Hedge.
The 57-year-old University of Texas professor, Richard Morrisett, had become a target by antifa over a domestic violence incident stemming from 2016. The professor sparked outrage from the parents of students when he plead guilty to an off campus incident with his girlfriend. The school responded with UT President Greg Fenves making a declaration in a letter that any employee who breaks the law may face discipline even if they don’t pose a direct threat to campus safety.
An armed group of extreme antifa leftists, calling themselves “Revolutionary Student Front,” made continuous threats against Morrissett, a tenured pharmacy professor, following the charges. The door of his lab was defaced with menacing messages like “GET Out Morrisett OR ELSE” and “WATCH YOUR BACK RICHARD,” accompanied by communist iconography.
Revolutionary Student Front – Austin, describes themselves as a “revolutionary anti-capitalist student movement” that used the University of Texas as their base of operations.
The militant radicals recently grabbed the attention of the press after holding their own “self-defense” training practice on campus and tweeting about killing law enforcement. This month they released a 13,000+ word manifesto laying out what they call a “Revolutionary Mental Health Program (RMHP).” The documents outline the formation, victories, goals, and short comings of their program.
They state their intentions were to actively recruit students with mental health issues in order to radicalize them and “make them into active fighters”. read more
