Don’t believe us when we talk about Donald Trump‘s America?
Just take a look at what’s going on on college campuses around the country.
According to the Anti Defamation League, the white supremacist movement has been making its biggest push in America EVER since Trump was elected, recruiting college students through propaganda like pro-white posters (above).
ADL chief exec Jonathan Greenblatt explained in a grave statement on Monday:
“White supremacists have consciously made the decision to focus their recruitment efforts on students and have in some cases openly boasted of efforts to establish a physical presence on campus.
While there have been recruitment efforts in the past, never have we seen anti-Semites and white supremacists so focused on outreach to students on campus.”
These types of posters have been spotted on campuses in at least 25 states so far, and you may not even have noticed!
Just as white supremacists and neo-Nazis on the whole have been going incognito as the “alt-right,” individual groups in the movement also have names you may not have given a second glance.
American Vanguard, Identity Evropa, and American Renaissance are all groups concerned with making sure white people get ahead — at the expense of what they consider lesser races.
Here are some specific examples of which the ADL has taken sad note:
- – Feb. 21, 2017 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Va. ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ student wearing ODU sweatshirt tweeted a music video called “white power” that spread around campus.
- – Feb. 15, 2017 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ University of Southern California, Los Angeles ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ vendor (had prior permission) was asked to leave after it was discovered he/she was selling shirts and albums with swastika symbols.
- – Feb. 10, 2017 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Adolf Hitler valentine cards “my love 4 u burns like 6,000 jews” circulated at Central Michigan University, Pleasant, Mich.
- – Jan. 18, 2017 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Printer hacked caused anti-Semitic fliers to be printed ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.
- – Dec. 6, 2016 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ White nationalist Richard Spencer spoke at Texas A&M, College Station, Tex., as a guest of Preston Wiginton.
Disgusting. Remember — these are hate groups, NOT “alternative” opinions.
If you’re wondering what makes them feel more free and easy under Trump, look no further than the countless racist statements the POTUS has made — not to mention his attempts to ban Muslims.
Stay safe out there, everyone!
