    At WestConn, "severest disciplinary actions" promised against those who posted "hate-filled flyers"

    "Have no doubt that we are treating this as an attack on our university community and making every effort to see that those responsible are caught and properly punished, " Clark wrote in a letter published late Friday afternoon. "I am fully committed to the absolutely necessary goal this does not happen again. We must be ever vigilant to protect our university against these hateful attacks."

    The flyers, typed and printed on white paper, were left around a residence and classroom hall just off the WCSU main green on the midtown campus on White Street in Danbury, university spokesman Paul Steinmetz said.
    Sounds awful, don't it? They got the FBI involved along with local police to help catch the perpetrators.

    Yikes. Whatever was printed on these flyers must be pretty bad. Prepare yourself for the most vile, revolting, disgusting hate speech you have ever experienced:

    That's it. Saying white people are ok is not only hate speech, but it's an "attack" which should be severely punished.

    John Clark is correct.

    "One flyer read "It's OK to be white" and the other read "Islam is right about women," Steinmetz said."

    Apparently that means that it is not OK to be white and Islam is not right about women?

    Not really sure what either set means, but anyone who posts flyers is a bit nutty anyway.

    Later in the story: "In early October, Yale University police began an investigation after someone painted a swastika above the word “Trump” outside the law school."

    Defacing property seems more egregious to me.

    1. Maybe the writer was expressing his/her fear that the shrinking Caucasian population will be treated unfairly in the coming decades.

    2. The new American leaders who will be emerging at the local, state, and national levels will, I am confident, ask all Americans to treat our nation's remaining Caucasians with respect and kindness. Hopefully, the affirmative action laws will also be kept on the books for the benefit of our nation's new minority group.

    Was there some crime or violation of school policy involved here? Or just outrage in response?
