Well thankfully we're not white supremacists. We're identitarians.

2017-09-21 01:22:22 UTC  

holy shit

2017-09-21 01:22:30 UTC

Blaq

2017-09-21 01:38:14 UTC

2017-09-21 02:10:28 UTC  

So brave. He's swimming upstream in a river of invisible racism

2017-09-21 02:18:54 UTC  

@Erika That article almost seems to imply that fewer white people and more African Americans means more tolerance. The mask is slipping.

2017-09-21 02:50:52 UTC  

We're "The" IE now. Sheeeeiiiit.

Haha

2017-09-21 04:32:41 UTC  

Perfect!

2017-09-21 05:02:06 UTC  

We're gonna get sued by OSU now 😭😭

2017-09-21 05:03:28 UTC  

@AlecK-FL wouldn't prohibiting us from flyering be a clear 1A issue?

2017-09-21 05:04:20 UTC  

The case law for campus speech breaks down like so

2017-09-21 05:04:42 UTC  

1: You cannot disrupt the normal operations of the university

2017-09-21 05:05:23 UTC  

2: The Campus cannot interfere with your speech in such a way that the intended message of the expression is harmed or changed

2017-09-21 05:05:34 UTC  

Thats how they get away with "free speech" zones

2017-09-21 05:06:19 UTC  

They claim that literally anything disrupts university operations and a free speech zone accomdates the intention of your expression

2017-09-21 05:06:32 UTC  

They use this same process with fliers

2017-09-21 05:06:44 UTC  

You have to get disributed material "approved"

2017-09-21 05:06:53 UTC  

It's bueracratic censorship

2017-09-21 05:07:29 UTC  

Obviously, they would just claim IE posters disrupts campus operations because nathan pops out of the posters and personally attacks minorities

The best paragraph from the Newsweek piece :

After a brief lull this summer, Identity Evropa is ramping up its recruiting arm with terrifying speed—and a sudden shift in strategy. Historically, the group’s fliers had images of Greek and Roman statues alongside vague phrases like, “Our future belongs to us” and “Let’s become great again.” But a few weeks ago, Identity Evropa unveiled a new recruiting strategy: posters with photos of founder Nathan Damigo and Evan Thomas, another Identity Evropa member—both of whom could pass for frat bros—talking into bullhorns above new slogans, including, “Our generation, our future, our last chance,” and “Action. Leadership. Identity.”

"White Supremacists who attacked Charlottesville"...

Responding with succint points to such an hyperbolic smear like that is highly important. The statement is an outright deliberate lie.

I always thought adding a human aspect with people on our posters would be a great first step. It shows that we aren't afraid of confrontation and it makes us more personable.

"I am confused about who are the real fascists. The new group Campus Antifascist Network seems to fit the definition more than Identity Evropa. "

>"Indentify Evropa, which prefers to characterize itself as 'indentitarian," helped organize the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va. in August that led to the killing of a counterprotestor."
