So when racists spread their filth on our public campuses, should we ignore them and hope they go away? Or should we publicize their actions and risk giving their hateful fires more oxygen?
If you prefer the former approach, read no further.
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and Black Hills State University were hit last weekend with posters from Identity Evropa, a white supremacist group that has been peppering campuses nationwide with its thinly veiled propaganda.
A tweet from Identity Evropa dated Sunday, February 26, shows four photos of the white supremacist group’s posters under the heading “Black Hills University, SD.” The outdoor shot and one bulletin board shot are at Mines, another bulletin board shot is at BHSU; the location of the third bulletin board shot is unclear.
A source in Rapid City tells me other, worse posters have appeared, such as a picture of the World Trade Center on fire with the text, “Imagine a world without Muslims.”
The unauthorized posters were removed quickly, but apparently some racist has been waging poster war all week, including these posters citing a variety of racist movements, tweeted from Mines tonight:
When I view the full picture on Twitter, I find the “White Guilt/Cultural Marxism” poster is taped to the office door of Dr. Kayla Pritchard.
Notice that, disgustingly, some of these tweets have Likes.
Mines President Heather Wilson is busy convincing Senators that her murky past lobbying and finances won’t make her a bad Secretary of the Air Force. But for now, she’s still on our payroll, so we should expect her and BHSU President Tom Jackson to issue a stern condemnation of this hate speech on our campuses.
