Antifa groups aren’t known for their rationality and prudence, but one Texas Antifa organization is taking their delusions to a new level. A Daily Caller report detailed one group’s active efforts to target and recruit people with mental health issues.
The Revolutionary Student Front at the University of Texas at Austin hosted a “Revolutionary Mental Health Program” “to address the mental health needs of students in a way that would primarily serve to politicize and strengthen them, to become more committed to revolution and more capable of carrying it out,” reported Far Left Watch.
The UT Austin Antifa student group based its 2017 program on “Turn Illness Into A Weapon,” a book charting the neo-Marxist Socialist Patients Collective group’s actions in Germany, which placed the blame of mental illness on capitalist oppression.
According to report, the RSF wanted to exploit those suffering from mental illness and indoctrinate them into their cause, while treating their ailments.
The University of Texas at Austin’s student affairs division offers a Counseling and Mental Health Center to all students.
Antifa groups regularly engage in violence against political opponents, making the potential introduction of mental illness to the cause a dangerous ingredient in an already explosive mixture of extremists.
