Fliers from group called white supremacist found in Bozeman

BOZEMAN – Fliers promoting a group labeled as a white supremacist organization by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) were spotted in Bozeman over the weekend.

Identity Evropa appears to be racially motivated, though they claim on their website that they are not a white supremacist group.

Hate group moves west to Missoula after posting fliers in Billings
Identity Evropa tweeted images of their fliers at the Montana Veterans Memorial on Oak Street, the Sunset Hills War Memorial, and Montana State University.

MSU News Service Director Michael Becker said in a statement, “Montana State University strongly rejects the supremacist views espoused by Identity Evropa, and we affirm our institutional values based on respect for the dignity of every human being.”

Bozeman Police say the fliers in and of themselves are protected speech and not illegal.

“As long as it’s done in a public space, it’s protected activity. If people are trespassing to do these things then there can be issues with that that we can investigate. There can be crime motivated by hate and those are things we can take action on, but merely speech-related items like this, the Constitution protects that and we are sworn to uphold that,” said Bozeman Police Chief Steve Crawford.

According to the ADL, Identity Evropa is “is a white supremacist group focused on the preservation of ‘white American culture’ and promoting white European identity.” The ADL says the group’s slogan—”You will not replace us”—is reflective of Identity Evropa’s racial views:

IE’s slogan, “You will not replace us,” reflects its belief that unless immediate action is taken, the white race is doomed to extinction by an alleged ‘rising tide of color’ purportedly controlled and manipulated by Jews.

The group has been posting fliers across the U.S. in the past few days in places such as New Jersey, Illinois, and California.

DA: Student charged with hate crime for Nazi flyers at SUNY Purchase
Posted: Dec 11, 2018 4:41 AM CST
Updated: Dec 11, 2018 4:15 PM CST

PURCHASE -
A Purchase College student now faces felony charges for hanging pro-Nazi flyers on campus, according to officials.

Gunnar Hassard was arraigned at Harrison Town Court on charges of aggravated harassment, which is a felony and a hate crime.

According to the district attorney, the 18-year-old student from Oneonta admitted to putting up neo-Nazi flyers on buildings at Purchase last weekend

The DA also told the court that there is video of Hassard plastering those flyers when Jewish students and staff were celebrating the final nights of Hanukkah.


School officials say 16 posters in total were found on campus, many of them showing a picture of Hitler and a swastika.

The DA and legal experts say that it’s the the presence of a swastika on public property that warrants that felony charge of aggravated harassment.

Hassard's attorney says the case raises concerns over his client's First Amendment rights.

“Please tell your viewers to wait until the evidence is in. Don't go on anything you hear until there is a trial,” says Jay Solow, of Legal Aid of Westchester.

Hassard was released on $5,000 bail and has not been allowed to return to Purchase. He is due back here in court Jan. 8.
Swastikas on public property didn't get the kid charged with a felony, it was a corrupt DA that did. With the governor of New York spewing his hatred for Whites and free speech in this case, the rot clearly goes all the way to the top.

Video, anti-Semitic flyers target Baraboo ahead of meetings
Baraboo police open criminal investigation
Posted: Dec 12, 2018 05:42 PM CST Updated: Dec 12, 2018 11:12 PM CST

BARABOO, Wis. - Authorities are trying to determine who posted anti-Semitic flyers ahead of planned meetings next week regarding a photograph of Wisconsin high school boys appearing to give a Nazi salute.

Baraboo Police Chief Mark Schauf said police are opening a criminal investigation following two acts of an anti-Semitic nature in the city.

The flyers were posted Monday on the exterior of Jack Young Middle School in Baraboo. They contained warnings about Dec. 18, an apparent reference to a day of high school assemblies featuring speakers calling for tolerance.

Police are also investigating a video that came out Monday on the website minds.com. The video, self-titled "A satirical short about current events in Baraboo," depicts members of the Baraboo community conducting violent, hate-related conduct. Officials said the video shows students and staff at Baraboo High School.

The city of Baraboo has two meetings coming up on Monday and Tuesday as part of the Baraboo Acts program. The program is in response to the recent publicity surrounding a photograph taken in May outside the Sauk County Courthouse in Baraboo. The parent who took the photo said he was simply asking the teens to wave goodbye to their parents before they headed to the prom.
Once again, the police (likely induced by their political masters) are "investigating" as though a crime has been committed.

It goes to show that the lack of moral courage in Whites (men especially) is what has brought us to this point. Those quotes above are that of a sniveler, not a White man worthy of the name. Real Whites never apologize for standing up for their own people.

More racist flyers spotted in Allegheny County
Updated: Dec 12, 2018 - 11:14 PM

ELIZABETH, Pa. - Police are on the lookout for whoever is spreading yet more messages of hate.

Ku Klux Klan flyers have been left on front stoops and street corners in Elizabeth Township.

Police are not taking this lightly and told Channel 11 they have spent a lot of time searching for any racist flyers.

They are encouraging residents to call them with an exact location if they spot any propaganda.

“I opened it up and it was the propaganda,” said Jacob Smith, who was walking along Route 51 Tuesday night. He said he didn't realize what it was at first and kept walking.

"Then we found another, and that’s when I kind of got a little bit concerned," Smith said.

They found the material in clear baggies, weighted down with birdseed. The wording on the flyers can only be described as offensive.

"It’s historically inaccurate, and there’s a bunch of false accusations against different racial groups," Smith said. "It’s disgusting. It’s truly disgusting that people feel that way towards other people."

Smith said he didn't realize how serious it was until he read the material with his friend and her parents, who initially thought this was all a joke.

"Really sad that people feel this way," said Demetrius Thorn. "We looked at it as more of a cowardly thing."

Anti-Semitic flyers were spotted over the weekend in several Pittsburgh communities, including Squirrel Hill. Police are investigating those.

"It would’ve been kind of bad if a child found this. They shouldn’t be exposed to stuff like this," Smith said.

"Being a half-black guy in a town of very white people, it feels unwelcoming, but it's not something I'm afraid of," Thorn said.

While freedom of speech is legal, Elizabeth Borough police told Channel 11 charges could come if flyers are threatening or seem harassing or if someone trespasses on another person's property to post the flyers.
They're really reaching for any law they can use here to stifle free speech. Corrupt police officials at their finest! I wonder how many of them have been taking free "vacations" to Israel (on the Jews' shekel) to learn these tactics to violate the rights of Whites.

White supremacist organization recruiting on campus
Jack Dobbs Dec 3, 2018

In recent months, a controversial organization has placed flyers, stickers and recruiting tools around WKU.

The organization, known as Identity Evropa (pronounced “Europa”), is registered as a white nationalist hate group with the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Both Bowling Green and WKU have been the recipient of Identity Evropa’s presence. Posters featuring Identity Evropa slogans and stickers of its logo, known as “The Dragon’s Eye,” have been placed at the Cravens-Helm Library on the Hill as well as at Spencer’s Coffee in downtown Bowling Green.

Aside from plastering signs all over town, Identity Evropa has engaged local and aspiring members in various hikes and outdoor activities around Bowling Green. These activities are logged on Identity Evropa’s Twitter account.

“They know how to handle a lot of things, and they are here to normalize themselves,” WKU senior Spencer Wells said.

Wells, who comes from a Jewish family, said he has experienced Identity Evropa’s practices on campus first-hand. He said he first heard about flyers in Bowling Green from a shared Facebook post on Oct. 3.

From there, Wells said he spoke with a former supervisor at WKU Libraries who said she had noticed flyers in the hallway between Cravens and Helm library.

After finding the flyers in libraries, Wells said members of Bowling Green Mutual Aid Society and the Southern Kentucky Democratic Socialists of America patrolled downtown Bowling Green and WKU’s campus for flyers. Wells said he or other members found posters in Downing Student Union and College Street.

“They’re doing a lot of intelligence gathering right now,” Wells said. “They just need to have one or two successes on campus, and then they’re gone.”

Identity Evropa is the latest in a line of “alt-right” groups. According to the Anti-Defamation League, the “alt-right” is known for consisting largely of white supremacy organizations like Identity Evropa.

The emergence of Identity Evropa’s propaganda on college campuses nationwide is known as #ProjectSiege, according to a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Identity Evropa was founded in 2016 by Iraq War veteran Nathan Damigo and prides itself as an “American Identitarian” organization, according to its website. Identitarianism is defined as a movement that supports political and social agendas of certain racial or ethnic groups. Most of the time, identitarianism relates to European culture and heritage, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“We are a group of patriotic American Identitarians who have realized that we are descended from the great traditions, history and people that flowed from Europe,” Identity Evropa’s website states. “We embrace the idea that our identities are central to who we are, and take pride in our history and rich cultural heritage. At a time when every other group is free to stand behind its identity, we choose to assert ours as well.”

A quick perusing of Identity Evropa’s website will reveal photographs of organization members dressed in coats and ties and photographs showing Identity Evropa’s current leader, Patrick Casey, speaking to a crowd through a megaphone.

Identity Evropa’s website also features a prominent picture of a large banner reading “AMERICA FIRST—END IMMIGRATION” draped from a highway overpass. On Twitter, Identity Evropa’s feed consists mainly of photos showing posters with phrases such as “thank you veterans” and “Identity Evropa: European Roots American Greatness.”

While Identity Evropa does not officially publish membership numbers, it is a national organization which has hung posters all over the United States from La Jolla, California, to Bedminster, New Jersey.

The Herald reached out to local and national branches of Identity Evropa over its website and social media but did not receive a response in time for publication.

This recent advertising by Identity Evropa has resulted in swift action. Some members of WKU’s Student Government Association along with other WKU students have spoken out against Identity Evropa.

An SGA Senate resolution has also been created addressing this issue. The bill is authored by Wells, along with Executive Vice President Garrett Edmonds, Campus Improvements Committee chair Matt Barr and WKU student Ashlynn Evans.

“We are not trying to limit their rights to free speech, but we are officially denouncing what they say,” Edmonds said.

The resolution calls for the SGA Senate to officially denounce the practices that Identity Evropa has engaged in on WKU’s campus. The bill authors believe the leadership at WKU has a responsibility to discourage these events from taking place on campus and around Bowling Green.

“The only way to get rid of them is to get [campus] leaders to hold them accountable,” Wells said. “My main priority is keeping campus safe.”

Reporter Jack Dobbs can be reached at 270-745-0655 and jack.dobbs469@topper.wku.edu.
Denunciation by an administrator and the desire by the Jewish ringleader of a student mob who wants to "get rid of them" provide a rather hostile environment for free speech, and possibly an announcement to violate the rights of Identity Evropa members.

White supremacist propaganda found on campus
By ELIZABETH FINTO

Staff Writer

Another white supremacist group made its presence known on UMW’s campus.

On Nov. 25, UMW Police found numerous fliers and stickers from the white supremacist group Identity Evropa. According to the UMW Police, these fliers were acting as part of a “recruiting campaign that targets college campuses.”

The propaganda dispersed around campus was found near Blackstone Coffee and on the Eagle Village bridge. UMW was not the only college that was targeted. Other colleges including North Carolina State University, University of Montana, Bridgewater College, and numerous others nationwide have had fliers posted on their campuses. Identity Evropa shares images of the fliers posted on college campuses to their Twitter account numerous times each day. These fliers include images of European statues and phrases such as “Our Future Belongs to Us” and “Keep Your Diversity We Want Identity.”

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Identity Evropa is a white supremacist group that was launched in March of 2016. Their goal is to “preserve ‘white American culture’” and uphold the “white European identity” (Anti-Defamation League) by using hate speech and a racist ideology. Identity Evropa also played a role in the 2017 Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville.

The UMW Police received a call early in the morning on Nov. 25 about the fliers and immediately responded. “We canvassed the community, we looked for other areas on campus [with fliers] and found some other fliers and we took those down,” said Michael Hall, the chief of UMW Police. “While the information and the ideas behind [Identity Evropa] are despicable, it’s not illegal.”

Chief Hall ensures that there are numerous measures in place, such as cameras and patrol, in order to help prevent these events. “We can’t guarantee it won’t happen again,” he said. But we have policies and procedures that prohibit [these acts] on our campus. We don’t condone this here at the University of Mary Washington. It goes contrary to everything we believe in.”

The UMW Police and the UMW community “continue to reach out to other counterparts whether its at the local, state, or federal level,” according to Chief Hall.

Although Hall recognized the importance of notifying the community of what has happened, Hall explained that, at the same time, he “does not want to create a platform to get a message out that reinforces or publicizes Identity Evropa’s message.”

Chief Hall shares that he never wants to put UMW’s community in fear. “We’re on top of this and we are following this. We are an open campus, and we want our community to feel safe and secure,” he said.

UMW’s Student Government Association is also making efforts to prevent similar incidents. In a statement, they explained: “SGA constantly strives to be an inclusive governing body, and ensure that all students feel like they belong here at UMW. SGA is committed to working with the university to maintain a safe campus environment. To further that commitment, the Senate voted on November 7 to create an ad-hoc Campus Safety Committee. This committee is charged with all matters of student safety and security. Every student, no matter their race, class, gender identity, etc… deserves to feel at home at UMW.”

Students also voiced their concerns about these incidents and how they are handled.

“My experience with UMW has always been a positive one that has been super welcoming and inclusive, but I see a major lack of diverse representation around our campus and I think flyers like these hurt UMWs image to be more diverse and inclusive,” said senior and communication and digital studies major, Christiana Meyers. “Students have the right to express themselves but it’s UMW’s job to make sure that it is happening in a way that is respectful to all.”

UMW College Republicans condemned the actions of Identity Evropa. “There is no place for white supremacy here in Fredericksburg,” said the club’s president, senior political science major Stephen Lamm. “To use a known slogan and be a little cliché, ‘Hate is not a UMW value.’ Our campus is [a] diverse in thought and background, and we want people to feel safe here.”

The UMW Young Democrats club did not respond to a request for comment.

“I honestly wasn’t that fazed by it,” said senior and wildlife conservation major Maddie Reid. “It isn’t because I’m okay with what happened. I’ve just become really numb to all of the awful things that happen now. It seems so normal now for people to be targeted or hated or mistreated. I know that white supremacy goes against our core values as UMW students, but it also goes against my core values as a human being. When someone uses their right to [free speech] to create a world where others feel trapped, then it’s not okay.”

Senior biology major Bekah DeBell agreed.

“I think this act is completely unacceptable. It should be investigated but I’m also not sure we handled it in the best way possible. They clearly wanted attention which is exactly what [UMW] gave them,” she said.

Although this act was not illegal, this is the sixth related incident that has occurred on UMW’s Fredericksburg campus in the past three years. In 2015, one hate crime regarding a religious bias was reported. In 2017, four hate crimes regarding sexual orientation, race, religion, and gender were reported.

Alt-right Message Written On Free Speech Wall
By Andrew Lenzo | 12/16/18 7:53pm

Spotted earlier today by a reporter for the Eastern Echo, one of the walls in the Free Speech Space reads “it’s okay to be white.” The message comes a week after a statement condemning anti-semitism [sic] was tampered with on the same wall.

“As soon as we saw that message, we knew it couldn’t stay up,” said Student Government Vice President Ethan Smith. “To whoever did this, I’d just say give it up. Your message is never going to take root here, and the EMU community isn’t even going to give it a chance.”

Eastern Michigan University’s Free Speech and Speaker Policy calls for the university to ensure the “safety and security” of people on and around Eastern’s campus, while allowing views to be expressed openly to allow for “critical evaluation.”

Student Government encourages students to speak up and shut down inflammatory and hateful messages when they appear on campus. The guidelines for use of the Student Speech Space, which include the kiosk and the walls, call it a creative space for students to “communicate upcoming events and other public messages.”

The slogan “it’s okay to be white” [sic] was spread last year by users on the website 4chan, an Internet discussion forum, to show that a harmless message would cause mass coverage by the media. It has since been picked up by politically organized neo-Nazi groups, including commentary website The Daily Stormer, to advocate for anti-semetic [sic] practices and white [sic] supremacy.

Richard Spencer, president of the white [sic] supremacist think tank the National Policy Institute, sparked a nationwide conversation on how free speech is regulated at college campuses when vising campuses around the country, including Michigan State University in March, spreading anti-semetic [sic] messages. The debate on whether to censor or resist free speech at public universities has been a political issue since students protested at University of California, Berkeley in the 1960s, advocating for academic freedom and a right to free speech.

The message was painted over at 6:00 p.m. by members of Student Government and the Silver Linings Fellowship Group.
Student government violates school policy and free speech rights of others, administrators look the other way. They're going to be in charge in a generation or two.
