‘Hitler was right’ fliers posted at Arizona State University

Posters printed with slogans like “Hitler was right” and swastikas were found at Arizona State University in Tempe on Sunday, according to a Facebook post by ASU Chabad rabbi Shmuel Tiechtel.

“When we are faced with opposition and anti-Jewish sentiment, we cannot back down,” he wrote. “It is a time to add in Jewish pride and to live more Jewishly.”

ASU removed the posters after they were reported.

This is the second time in a year that ASU has seen anti-Semitic posters from the white nationalist group Folksfront, which listed its URL on the posters.

The Anti-Defamation League told AZ Central that Folksfront has had a growing presence in Arizona over the last few months.
