#IdentifyEvropa: Neo-Nazi Student at UT Austin

Autonomous Student Media: Gestures Towards the Ungovernable

There’s a Neo-Nazi student at UT who works with a national Neo-Nazi organization named Identity Evropa. How’s that for a hook? Although if you’ve been following along with events on campus the past few years, this probably isn’t that surprising. We believe his name is Clayton Ray Leonard, and will explain why & what we have found about him below.

InfoWars Invasion: Student Propagandists at UT

Autonomous Student Media: Gestures Towards the Ungovernable

Every so often on campus, students have to deal with the annoyance of a visit from InfoWars reporters. This is just part of being a student at UT, since InfoWars is based out of Austin and often seeks to get soundbites and content for sensationalist videos about liberal/leftist college students. While they are often treated as a joke, InfoWars is a dangerous force–especially for those who may try to call them out in person. In 2017, a young girl called them out on camera and was subsequently doxxed and harassed by InfoWars followers. Leftists or anybody who ends up with their face on an InfoWars livestream, whether on campus or at a protest, is at risk of doxxing & harassment from the Infowars mob.

Merry Doxxmas! A Racist Holiday Roundup

Autonomous Student Media: Gestures Towards the Ungovernable

Over a month ago, UT students and Austin anti-racists showed out to take action against the presence of white nationalist speaker Katie Hopkins on campus. Since the counter-protest, a team of antifascists has dedicated itself to digging up information on the students who attended thise event, where the Daily Texan reported the audience applauding the grotesque xenophobia Hopkins was spewing.

This crew now gladly presents the fruits of this research, as well as a call to help identify some yet unrecognized faces. The research below includes people who were at the Katie Hopkins event, as well as newly identified members of Turning Point USA or the Young Conservatives of Texas.

New Faces: Everybody Hates You!

This section deals with new individuals identified from the November 13th Katie Hopkins speaking event. Highlights of this section includes a hindu nationalist fascist & multiple members of Tau Kappa Epsilon.

Varun M Hukeri

Government & IRG junior in Liberal Arts Honors with a minor in Chinese.
Associate editor of content for The Liberator. Has previously been an undergraduate research fellow at Innovations for Peace and Development, and is still listed as a contributor to the Chinese Development Finance blog. Volunteer at Foundation for the Homeless
Member of Liberal Arts council, College Republicans, and Hindu Students Association.

Varun was present at the Katie Hopkins event in November. While exiting the event, he flashed the OK sign–a symbol co-opted as an alt-right dogwhistle–at protestors.

On his Twitter, Varun describes himself as a neo-reactionary, a third positionist, and a nationalist. Third Positionist refers to a strain of fascism that mixes nationalism, racism, & anti-semitism with elements of left-wing anti-capitalism, such as the tendency of Strasserism within the early Nazi Party. His pinned tweet is a quote by Julius Evola, an Italian writer who became one of the most prominent late 20th century fascist philosophers in Europe. Evola was known for espousing a mixture of Nazi occultism and Hinduism, which merged mysticism, race science, authoritarianism, and casteism. Varun epouses a similarly fascistic Hindu nationalism. His cover photo “The Kali Yuga Ends, The Black Sun Rises,” is a reference to this blend of Nazi occultism and Hinduism which sees the present state of Western civilization as one of chaos (The Kali Yuga) which will be followed by the resurgence of the Black Sun, a symbol of fascistic resurgence long used by Nazi groups.
On Twitter, he follows alt-right figures like “race realist” Stefan Molyneux, Ann Coulter, Mike Cernovich, and Paul Joseph Watson, Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, French fascist Marine Le Pen and more. On Facebook, his likes include fascist meme pages.

UT Protects YCT Misogynoir & Rape Apologism

Autonomous Student Media: Gestures Towards the Ungovernable

On Wednesday evening, the YCT hosted an event where Michael Quinn Sullivan & Cary Cheshire of the right-wing advocacy group Empower Texans came and spoke to them. Following on the heels of the mass protest against the YCT’s pro-Kavanaugh demonstration on West Mall, figures like Paul Bettencourt pressured the University in ramping up their already extravagant efforts to protect the group. In anticipation of possible protests, police swarmed the area around Waggener hall. On the outside, 5-7 cops stood on guard and patrolled the area. Hidden away by the GDC and SAC, two patrol cars waited. On the inside, the lobby of the building contained another 4 police officers. Finally, the room for the YCT’s even contained approximately 5 police officers.

Open the Windows!

A rant by Saoirse Ní Mhaille

UT Austin hates me and doesn’t want me to breathe in that good stormy air. $25 to open a window. Yes, I could just run outside, but what if I want to enjoy the storm from the safety of my room? What if I’m doing homework and can’t get my laptop wet? What if I want to go to sleep to the sound of the rain? What if I just farted and it really stinks? Hmmm??? What then???

Zine–The End Of Your Life: On Anarchy and Why You Should Do It

Submission from the Autonomous Student Network–College Station. Originally published on the College Station Autonomous Collective wordpress.

Below, we’ve published a zine submission from a crew using the name ASN College Station. They are not formally affiliated with ASN Austin, but we are happy to see others take up the name to use for their publications, crews, and actions. We expect to see a lot more cool stuff coming out of College Station soon. If you’re in College Station, you should also check out the newly emerging College Station Autonomous Collective. Take a peek at their wordpress and their twitter, and keep an eye out for a meeting near you! Until then, enjoy this piece!

Crash The Party: Shitty Moments from Roundup

Vandalism on the gates of Fiji from April 2017

Autonomous Student Media: Gestures Towards the Ungovernable

CW: sexual assault, harassment, homophobia, racism

We’ve just made it through another series of hellish weeks, with SXSW and Roundup hitting us back to back. As we come out on the other side of Roundup, we wanted to highlight some of the moments from this weekend that made even clearer why Greek Life is, at its core, a racist, cisheteropatriarchal institution. We’ve captured some of the student discussions and other events of this weekend, including catcalls, insider secrets, and assaults. Remember that this is only a small sampling of the events and experiences of this weekend, and there are likely many more stories that remain untold due to fear, shame, stigma, or the normalization of the horrors of Roundup & Greek Life.

Spitshine Spotlight

The 2018 CUPSI team

Autonomous Student Media: Gestures Towards the Ungovernable

Ask a room full of organizers about the things that inspired and radicalized them, and you’ll probably end up with a good number of people. A few may specifically mention slam poetry & spoken word, a form of expression that often attracts radical and revolutionary thinkers because of its ability to give voice to experiences and ideas that are typically silenced. At UT, you may find some of these creative radicals in a local group called Spitshine Poetry. Founded in 2012, Spitshine hosts weekly writing workshops and regular open mic nights, where students may collaborate on and present their work.

Words from Texas Prisoners: Excerpt from “Prisons are Plantations”

Austin Anarchist Black Cross demo in solidarity with striking prisoners in 2016

Anonymously published document. Full document here. Originally spotted on Revolutionary Horizon‘s facebook page.

 We are republishing a collection of excerpts from a larger piece composed of interviews with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated folks from Texas, Illinois, and Florida. The original document uses interviews and case studies with prisoners, guards, and historical analysis to demonstrate how prisons are extensions of the plantation system and mirror pre-1865 slave codes. We’ve highlighted passages that reflect the experiences and conditions of inmates in Texas prisons. We hope this will give students and other non-incarcerated folks a better idea of the conditions and struggles of prisoners, and expose students to some of the worlds that we are isolated from. In particular, students should recognize the complicity of their own schools in this system. UT’s Investment Management Corporation indirectly invests in two of the largest private prison companies, Corrections Corporation of America and the GEO group [1]. The prison has long been the hidden underside of the University. While the University produces new citizens & professionals, the prison strips away citizenship and produces captivity. We hope the following excerpts will inspire greater awareness and energy for anti-prison organizing.
