Earlier this month, an anarchist group mainly composed of UT Austin students called the Autonomous Student Network (ASN) shared a tweet, threatening to dox students who considered joining conservative organisations such as Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) and Turning Point USA (TPUSA), during the freshman orientation.
The tweet read "Hey #UT23 ! Do you wanna be famous? If you join YCT or Turning Point USA, you just might be. Your name and more could end up on an article like one of these," linking to doxxing posts from "Austin Autonomedia" (AAM), of conservative students at the university. "So be sure to make smart choices at #UTOrientation ." This tweet suggests that the leftists are preparing to dox incoming first-year students who join conservative groups on campus, and given their record, it does not seem to be an empty threat.
Doxxing refers to the internet-based practice of retrieving, hacking and publishing private information about an individual or organisation, as a form of punishment or revenge.
The anarchist blogs actively encourage the harassment of conservative students, stating that it is "extremely important to get organised early while this [TPUSA] group is in its infancy." Moreover, in the fall 2018 semester, this same group has harassed and doxed pro-Kavanaugh students on campus, where they shouted obscenities and destroyed signs expressing support for the judge. The day after that event, the pro-Kavanaugh students have been doxxed in another blog post by AAM.
