National Socialist Group Posts Recruitment Fliers with Swastikas at Arizona State University
The National Socialist group Folk Front posted fliers with a swastika and a Star of David around the Arizona State University campus in Tempe.
The posters were seen around various parts of the university campus. They were designed to look like the liberal "love not hate" phrase, but with a swastika in the word "love" while the Jew Star of David was in the word "hate."
The first person to find one of the fliers was a student.
The Hillel Jewish Center at ASU said in a Facebook post that "the fliers referenced and trivialized the Holocaust".
"Like you, we believe this message has no place on our campus. We are proud to work with you to make Jewish life on campus stronger every day, and an isolated incident such as this one will not deter us," read the post.
Carlos Galindo-Elvira, the Arizona regional director for the Jewish Supremacist ADL, said they were "very concerned by the fliers and that use of the hate symbol is not normal".
"We condemn its use to promote hate and divisiveness," said Galindo-Elvira.
He also said the ADL had contacted local law enforcement to learn more about the group "to ensure the safety and security of students." Arizona State University Police, in conjunction with the Tempe Police, are investigating the incident.
"Ensuring the safety and security of our students is our top priority, and the university undertakes extensive efforts to ensure student safety is not compromised," the university said in a statement to The Arizona Mirror.
"ASU is a place where open debate can thrive and honest disagreements can be explored, but not when hateful rhetoric is used. That is not who we are."
Meanwhile White National Socialist groups have been making recruitment pushes at colleges across America with many of them spreading the holy swastika symbol through their fliers.
