Pleasant Valley HS students offered $500 reward for information about ‘hateful’ bathroom graffiti

BETTENDORF, Iowa — Staff at Pleasant Valley High School are trying to figure out who left offensive graffiti in a bathroom at the school.

Principal Mike Zimmer said the graffiti consisted of a poem written in pencil that was offensive to those of several different races, sexual orientations, religious and ethnic backgrounds.

The graffiti was discovered on Thursday, November 29 while a custodian was cleaning a men’s bathroom. Zimmer said that’s when he was made aware of the “hateful and bigoted” graffiti; it was written on the wall inside a stall and has since been cleaned up.

“It was something I was extremely upset about,” he said.

The bathroom was closed and Zimmer said it would remain closed until the person or people responsible were found.

Zimmer said he made an announcement to the students on Friday morning, reminding them of the school’s tolerant and welcoming values. He mentioned a recognition they received in 2017 about being the “Most Inclusive High School in America by Varsity Brands.” That recognition landed them a $10,000 award that PVHS turned into a scholarship fund.

“It is against this background that I want to express my outrage at the most recent incidences that have occurred this fall,” Zimmer said in his announcement. “I have had to address derogatory comments made to one of our Hispanic students by his “so called” friends during a football game, investigated anti-Semitic comments made in our hallways and replaced or expunged surfaces containing hateful speech and symbols.”

He said any students found making threatening drawings or comments would “face school discipline consequences up to and including expulsion.”

Students were urged to come forward with any information about the message. A $500 reward was being offered to any student who offered information leading to the discovery of those responsible. He said more than a dozen students offered information after the announcement.

According to Zimmer a handful of teachers in the school said the announcement about the incident made for good classroom conversation.
Bribes for snitches!!

All this over bathroom poetry, and yet has every incidence of students making comments on bathroom walls get this kind of attention? And also: Did the teachers have a "conversation" or did they simply sit up there and preach White genocide by any means necessary? Those students who want a real conversation are welcome here, we where free speech about race still lives. Want to try your hand at poetry here?

Racist Fliers Found Outside Homes in Montgomery County
Residents of Whitemarsh Township and Springfield in Montgomery County are speaking out and fighting back after finding racist fliers outside their homes.

See video, as this propaganda outfit is too lazy to transcribe the story into written form. But whether it is libel or slander, these presstitutes are good at it and are continuing in this age-old Jewish tradition.

If you open up the morning Jewish papers and do not see your name vilified, libeled, or otherwise dragged through the mud then the previous day was wasted. With all due credit to AH. Whoever was responsible didn't waste their efforts.

Residents at the Whitemarsh/Springfield Township Border Find Racist Flyers in Driveways

December 2nd, 2018 | By Kevin Tierney

As reported in October, racist flyers were placed on cars outside the IKEA in Conshohocken (Plymouth Township). There was also an incident in October at the steel plant on Conshohocken Road in Conshohocken (Plymouth Township) where an African-American employee found racist graffiti and oil spilled on the steps in his work space.

Now residents at the Whitemarsh and Springfield Township border report that they woke up to racist flyers in their driveways on November 29th. NBC10 has the story:

More hysteria over Klan flyers. Identity Evropa has been in the Philadelphia area recently too.

SGA Confirms ‘It’s OK To Be White’ fliers’ ties to White Nationalism, Issues Response
By UC Tangerine - November 30, 20180284
Samuel Northrup, Editor-In-Chief

Student Government Association (SGA) issued its first campus-wide response via email after three fliers reading “It’s OK To Be White” were found on campus.

In its statement, SGA confirmed that the fliers, which were placed anonymously in Strebel Student Center and Bell Hall in October, were motivated by a larger campaign by white nationalist groups to “inflame racial tensions” on college campuses across the country. The student governing body’s email went on to condemn the “implicit historical meaning” attached to the words on the fliers.

“We are asking for our fellow students to join us in rising above hate, whether explicit or implicit, in resisting that which divides us, to be conscious of the impact of our actions and words, and to be ethically engaged student citizens,” stated the email. “Passivity must never be an option for us. We shall overcome.”

Inside Higher Ed, an online publication reporting on various educational, social and economic issues surrounding higher education, confirmed in a Nov. 7 report that “It’s OK To Be White” fliers have “typically” been placed by off-campus groups or individuals, not students. Additionally, the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism tracked a noticeable increase in the amount of white supremacist propaganda on college campuses across the country, finding 292 reported cases in the 2017-2018 academic year compared to 165 in the 2016-2017 semesters.

While still recognizing the importance of freedom of speech on college campuses, Hermina Garic, who was one of the nine executive board members who co-signed the SGA email, explained that student leaders wanted to take a “very strong position” on hate-related messages and groups.

“As SGA president, I’m still going to be vigilant of these issues and push for change on our campus and push my student leaders to do the same thing,” Garic said.

The presence of the “It’s OK To Be White” fliers on campus was the most recent example in a series of racially charged incidents to take place at UC since the 2017 spring semester when racist graffiti was found on walls in Bell Hall and Burrstone House.

While Garic recognized the role that students and the college administration can play in “battling racism,” she explained that a broader, systematic response to racism at UC would be an effective measure to see results. Speaking as a student leader, the SGA president pointed to steps that can be taken to encourage broader education on race in America and the world, including reevaluating the college’s curriculum to offer a more “globalized education” that is applicable to today’s society and increasing the hiring of more diverse faculty and administration members.

“You can’t just have [one group responding to an incident] because, if you just continue to respond to incidents, the issue of racism doesn’t go away,” Garic said. “You have to make sure you make structural changes because that’s where the issues of racism are rooted, there’s a whole power dynamic.”

But until all this happens, Garic said she is continuing to encourage fellow student leaders to be more vigilant of events and issues going on around campus and the world.
In all these articles, never is it mentioned to invite Whites who speak for Whites about fliers, posters, and other literature that's been offered. No, their "conversations" are all done in their exclusive echo-chambers.

Harrington Police Investigating KKK Fliers
Posted: Dec 04, 2018 7:56 AM CST
Updated: Dec 05, 2018 10:59 AM CST

HARRINGTON, Del.- A day after it was reported that the Seaford Police Department was investigating the distribution of dozens of KKK fliers there, the Harrington Police Department is reporting similar incidents in that city.

Harrington police said Tuesday that people who live in the city have reported that they have found plastic bags thrown in their yards containing information relating to racist organizations, namely the KKK.

Police said they are aware of the packages and are currently investigating the situation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Harrington Police Department at 302-398-4493, ext. 21.

Police in the city of Seaford, located approximately 20 miles south of Harrington, reported that on Saturday night a KKK flier was found in front of Macedonia AME Church on 431 N. North St. The following day, 11 more KKK fliers were found in the Virginia Commons neighborhood. As of Monday morning, an additional 13 were found in Seaford.

The fliers, which are inside baggies filled with pebbles to help weigh them down, feature slogans like "The KKK Wants You," and racially-charged messages targeting blacks, Jews and Latinos.

Seaford police on Tuesday afternoon said that after consulting with the Delaware Attorney General's Office, there will be no charges pursued in this investigation. Police provided no further details.

According to online reports, similar KKK fliers have also been spotted in Smyrna and Dover in Delaware and Vienna and Princess Anne in Maryland.
Investigating free speech again. It must be illegal. :roll:

White nationalist fliers posted in Bremerton
Patriot Front supports a “pan-European identity” in the U.S. and is linked to the deadly protests in Charlottesville last year.

By Gabe Stutman
Thursday, December 6, 2018 8:46am

Bremerton residents reported seeing a number of signs last week supporting the white nationalist group Patriot Front posted alongside city streets.

The posters bore messages like “Not Stolen, Conquered,” shown next to a map of the United States, “Better Dead Than Red,” “Resurrection Through Insurrection,” and “Blood and Soil,” a nationalist phrase used by Nazis in support of an ethnically German state.

Luke Klue, a mechanics instructor at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, said he was driving home from work Nov. 29 when he saw “five or six” of the signs on Naval Avenue, heading west.

“I got off work and went to check them out,” he said after seeing photos of the signs on social media. “They were there.”

The posters appeared to be affixed with tape and had all been torn down by the time Klue arrived. First reports of the posters came on Nov. 25.

“It’s those people,” Klue said. “They’re trying to repackage white nationalism into something that looks nicer.”

Another person who works at a tattoo parlor in Bremerton requested anonymity in discussing the posters.

“A bunch of buddies of mine have been taking those down,” he said.

Patriot Front supports the formation of a white “ethnostate” in the U.S., and, according to its website, “securing the American homeland against the invasion of foreign nations and interests.” Photos of loyalists published by the group show demonstrators holding banners that read “Deport Them All” and “America Is Our Birthright.”

The organization splintered from the neo-Nazi group Vanguard America following the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. last August, according to media reports. An internal feud between Patriot Front leader Thomas Rousseau and Dillon Irizarry of Vanguard America led to the split, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported.

Social media responses proliferated after the signs were posted. In one photo, a sign reading “Resurrection through Insurrection” was affixed to a lamppost – adjacent to the City of Bremerton logo.

It was not the first time signs espousing white nationalism surfaced in Bremerton. Last year, Patriot Front posters were spotted at Olympic College, former student body president Shannon Turner told the Kitsap Sun, prompting the college to change their policies regarding fliers from off-campus groups.

And in September, a public forum organized by the group Kitsap Aware entitled “White Nationalists in Kitsap County” was canceled after organizers feared violence from counter-protesters. A Facebook group opposing the forum – a lecture and discussion with researchers on the rise of white supremacist movements – indicated opponents would attend and disrupt the event.

Lt. Mike Davis of the Bremerton Police Department said law enforcement warned Olympic College prior to the public meeting.

“We had a hand in advising them that it was probably going to be violent,” Davis said.

Bremerton Police Department said it was not aware of the Patriot Front posters discovered about two weeks ago.

Davis said without a specific threat or credible harassment, the police had little to pursue.

“It’s not illegal for them to post that stuff,” he said.

“If the poster has specific dates to an event,” he added, “when they are going to come and do their thing – that’s when you start.”

In those cases – where harassment or a specific threat of violence is evident – local police involve the Washington State Patrol, and in some cases, the FBI.

“When threats become specific and rise to the level of federal hate crimes, we’ll get the Feds involved,” Davis said.

Klue said he was aware of the presence of radical right-wing groups in the area. He said while their platform espouses hateful, and even dangerous, views, they make efforts to blend into the political landscape.

“They’re just trying to make everybody think that white racists are cool guys, just trying to be nice,” he said.
“It’s not illegal for them to post that stuff,” An amazing admission from a cop.

Suspect Identified After Nazi-Themed Posters Found At SUNY Purchase
Zak Failla

“Nazi-themed” posters found on a college campus in Westchester over the weekend have prompted a police investigation.

Members of the SUNY Purchase University Police are investigating the posters and have identified a suspect believed to be responsible for spreading the posters at the Anderson Hill Road campus in Harrison.

"I regret to inform the community that yesterday, Nazi-themed posters were found in various spots around campus,” Officer-in-Charge Dennis Craig said. “That this hateful act took place on the last night of Hanukkah when our Jewish community members were celebrating the survival of their religion, makes it even more reprehensible.

“Please know that these posters, and any message of anti-Semitism and intolerance, go against our core values of diversity, acceptance, and understanding. At Purchase, we are committed to ensuring that all members of the community are accepted and welcome, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, background, or identity.”

The posters reportedly had images of Adolf Hitler and a swastika.

“Messages of hate, while becoming more and more prevalent in our country, have no place on our campus and will be treated with the utmost severity,” the university wrote in a statement. “As we believe the best way to combat hate is with education and dialogue, we will be collaborating with Hillels of Westchester and the Office of Diversity to put together a dialogue on diversity in the coming weeks, into the start of next semester. All members of the campus community will be welcome to attend.”

In a statement released after the revelation of the posters, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that “while they spread fear, we spread love.”

“I am disgusted by the discovery of neo-Nazi material at SUNY Purchase today. In New York, we will not tolerate the toxic social dynamic that is spreading like a cancer across the country and fueling hateful material like the neo-Nazi fliers that were found on the campus,” he said.

“I am directing the State Police Hate Crimes Unit to assist in the investigation into these fliers. Those behind this noxious act should know that these fliers, far from inciting fear, will only harden our resolve to combat hate in all its forms. We will not cower in the face of hate. While they spread fear, we will spread love.”

“I was deeply troubled to learn about the discovery of neo-Nazi posters at SUNY Purchase, especially as Jews across the world came together for the Festival of Lights, a celebration of the triumph of the Jewish people over persecution," Congresswoman Nita Lowey said in a statement. “It is with that same resolve and courage in which the Jews prevailed that we today must confront the disturbing rise of anti-Semitism at home and abroad. Only by working together will we root out hatred and bigotry in all its forms.”
Do I detect the governor looking to use his state police to violate someone's right to free speech?

Police investigating hate-filled flyers scattered throughout Pittsburgh neighborhoods

WTAE Updated: 8:33 PM EST Dec 9, 2018

Police are investigating hate-filled flyers that surfaced in several Pittsburgh neighborhoods, including Squirrel Hill.

According to a release by the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department, Pittsburgh police are looking into the dissemination of anti-Semitic pamphlets.

The Department of Public Safety assured the community that it is taking this matter very seriously and will follow every investigative avenue.

The pamphlets read as a recruitment letter for the Ku Klux Klan, targeting both the African-American and Jewish communities.

Police said the discovery horrified them, especially with the flyers being found so close to the Tree of Life, the synagogue that was the target of a mass shooting in October.

Jeff Finklestein, of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, said that unfortunately, this is not the first time the community has seen these types of flyers, but the timing of these raises a red flag.

"We are all at a bit of a heightened sensitivity since the shooting that killed 11 of our community members," Finklestein said.

Finklestein believes this hate will be easily overcome in the community.

"You combat hate with love, and it's about working with all the other segments in our community. We're stronger than hate, and the way this community rallies, I think this is going to make us stronger once again," Finklestein said.

Police said "such hate-filled material" will not be tolerated in the city by residents, city officials or law enforcement.

"Pittsburgh is and will remain Stronger than Hate," the city said.

— Pgh Public Safety (@PghPublicSafety) December 9, 2018
Wait...what? Police are investigating free speech? They must have solved all the crime in Pittsburgh to have the time for this!

And the "combat hate with love" thing---what a whopper of a lie that one is! Finklestein is likely the one pushing the cops to hammer the activists exercising their rights! Now if he had said "You combat pro-White activists by siccing the police on them in hopes they'll violate their Free Speech rights" then I'd believe the Jew.

Racist Rant Roils Columbia
"White people are the best thing that ever happened to the world," the racist Columbia student shouted. The university is investigating the incident but would not confirm whether the student will face disciplinary action.

By Emma Whitford
December 11, 2018

A Columbia University student shouted that “white people are the best thing that ever happened to the world” on Sunday evening during a racist tirade in front of students of color, who caught the rant on video.

“We invented science and industry, and you want to tell us to stop because ‘oh, my God, we’re so bad,’” the student said, skipping around the small crowd of students. “We saved billions of people from starvation. We built modern civilization. White people are the best thing that ever happened to the world. We are so amazing. I love myself and I love my people. [Fuck] yeah, white people! [Fuck] yeah, white men! We’re white men, we did everything.”

< Embedded video at website>

The white student in the video is Julian von Abele. Several onlooking students challenged his remarks; one asked, “What about slavery?”

In an email to students, Deans Mary Boyce, Lisa Rosen-Metsch and James Valentini assured students that the university was investigating the incident.

“Although we cannot comment on the proceedings, this incident is already under investigation by the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards, and we want to assure you that it will be investigated thoroughly, beginning with interviews of witnesses,” the email read.

A spokesperson for Columbia could not confirm whether that investigation will result in disciplinary action for von Abele.

The Columbia University Black Student Union addressed the incident in a Facebook post and elaborated on what allegedly occurred after the camera turned off.

“Apparently after this encounter, [von Abele] continued to harass several students and Public Safety did nothing to help or protect the students when they were contacted,” the post read. “This came after he forcibly grabbed a black woman and asked black women if they liked to date white men, according to several individuals.”

Von Abele did not respond to Inside Higher Ed’s request for comment.

Columbia’s student conduct policies specifically prohibit harassment, which is defined as “unwelcome verbal or physical conduct/threat of physical conduct that, because of its severity, pervasiveness, and/or persistence, interferes significantly with an individual’s work or education, or adversely affects an individual’s living conditions.” The university also has a nondiscrimination policy that, if violated, could result in a disciplinary hearing.

The university posted a Twitter thread in response to the incident.

“Statements of white racial superiority conflict with the university’s core value of inclusivity as well as the educational work and research that take place on our campuses,” it began.

The thread was met with some criticism.

“Actually, by teaching a Eurocentric core curriculum in which students study the modern world through the lens of solely Western societies, you are perpetuating the white supremacy that occurred on campus,” one user wrote. “I appreciate the tweeting, but it's time to diversify the core.” Columbia is known for a rigorous core curriculum with a strong focus on Western classics.

“There is only one socially acceptable outcome and that is to expel Julian von Abele from Columbia university,” another user tweeted. “You have to show there are serious consequences for his type of racist behavior.”
Comments are open to disqus members as well as the usual Jew-owned-and-run 'social media' echo chambers.
