White Supremacist Flyers Posted At Rutgers University

The white supremacist group Identity Evropa posted flyers earlier this week on the campus of Rutgers University, which has one of the biggest campus Jewish populations in the country.

The posters included images of their logo, sayings like “Our Generation, Our Future, Our Last Chance” and their website information. Images of the posters were shared on the group’s Twitter page. The posters were eventually removed by campus police.

“Rutgers University–New Brunswick condemns all forms of bias, which have no place in our society or on our campus,” university spokesman spokesman Neal Buccino said. “The flyers were not posted by a recognized university organization and violated our posting guidelines and policy.”

White supremacist groups have a sharply growing presence on college campuses, according to the Anti-Defamation League, with Identity Evropa accounting for nearly half of all tracked incidents since the fall of 2016.

Identity Evropa had previously posted flyers at Rutgers last fall, according to its Twitter page.

Rutgers is home to approximately 6,400 Jewish students, comprising 18% of the total undergraduate population, according to the Forward College Guide.
