“america is a white nation” fliers found on college campus in a string of white supremacist recruitment efforts

March 16, 2017

For the third time in three months, fliers promoting a white supremacist group were found at the University of Maryland campus in College Park, following similar incidents at universities across the country.

One flier (below) reads: “It is your civic duty to report any and all illegal aliens. They are criminals. America is a white nation.”

Another (also below) reads: “Carry the torch of your people.”

The student newspaper claims fliers also were found at three other locations, all including a link to a known white supremacist organization, Vanguard America. The group was also linked to white supremacist flyers at the university in December.

In case it isn’t clear how racist they are, a manifesto on the group’s website reads: “Our America is to be a nation exclusively for the White American peoples who out of the barren hills, empty plains, and vast mountains forged the most powerful nation to ever have existed; it is logical that America must be once again built from the ground up to recapture the glory an Aryan nation deserves.”

There has been an unprecedented effort to recruit white supremacists on college campuses in recent months, and The Anti-Defamation League claims more than 100 flyer postings have been reported this academic year on campuses across the country.
