From the Hartford Courant:

Police, FBI investigating ‘hate-filled flyers’ found on Western Connecticut State University campus

By ZACH MURDOCK
HARTFORD COURANT |
NOV 01, 2019 | 5:45 PM

Police and federal agents are investigating “hate-filled flyers and inscriptions” left around Western Connecticut State University’s campus Thursday night in Danbury.

It was not clear whether a student or “outside agitators” were responsible, but university President John Clark strongly condemned the materials and vowed to enforce the “severest disciplinary actions” regardless of whether students or someone off-campus made the 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.

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

University officials immediately reported the flyers to Danbury and state police and referred the messages to the FBI office in New Haven, all of whom were investigating who made the flyers on Friday, Steinmetz said.

Clark slammed the incident as despicable, utterly unacceptable and disgusting and promised the school would punish whoever is found responsible, including expulsion if students were involved and even criminal or civil actions in court.

“I want to state directly and without equivocation that if any member of our university community is found to be party to these revolting actions they will be subject to the severest disciplinary actions, including dismissal as well as possible civil and criminal actions,” Clark said. …

“I am both shocked and immensely saddened about this sick and outrageous behavior, especially since our university has worked so hard to be a warm, diverse and caring community for all, no matter their race, color, gender, sexual orientation/identification, disability and age,” Clark said. “All members of our community should feel comfortable, safe and secure at the university.”

Bait taken.

Maybe somebody should now put out this flier:

It’s OK
for the president of
Western Connecticut State University,



John Clark,
to be white.

Just to see how President Clark goes about condemning that sentiment.

    It would be great if Mississippi was majority Hindu American….and New Jeresy…and Virginia..

  2. “Islam is right about women” is genius. We should ditch the “OK to be white” stuff, and focus on that.

    ‘It’s OK to be white’ banner hanging over Mass. Pike sparks outrage

    NEWTON, MASS. (WHDH) – An outraged man traveling on the Mass. Pike stopped his car Friday morning to rip down a sign hanging from a highway overpass in Newton that read “It’s OK to be white.”

    Thousands of commuters on the busy highway got a glimpse of the large white banner that featured bold black lettering, prompting a response from the Anti-Defamation League of New England.

    “It’s pretty disappointing to see people in Massachusetts using a platform like that to disseminate a message that excludes people and targets people,” said Robert Trestan, Executive Director of the ADL’s Boston office.

    Sean Roche, who was driving with his daughter, got out of his car and tore the sign down before police arrived at the scene.

    “It’s a statement that being white is under attack right now and it’s just not true,” Roche told 7NEWS. “Being white is such an advantage in this society. To suggest otherwise is just straight-up racism.”

    Trestan says the “It’s OK to be white” campaign was launched two years ago and that it’s a matter that must be addressed.

    “It’s important for people not to be persuaded or attracted to a message like this because behind the words is bigotry, behind the words is hate,” Trestan said.

    Newton police told 7’s Steve Cooper that they handle incidents like this on a case-by-case basis. Officers would have only urged the person who put up the sign to simply take it down.

  8. Yeah, but is it ok for Islam to be right about white women?

  9. It would be amusing if the people handing out these flyers turned out to be a group of Muslims seeking to convert lost young white men to Islam.

    It would make a lot of sense, from their point of view. With Christianity banished from the culture, and the fruits of communist secular decadence punishing white men, such men are crying out for a belief system that doesn’t demonize them and gives them a strong, male-centric belief system.

    Islam, like Christianity, has no beef on racial grounds with whites. Although the current wave is closely tied to non-white ethnics, there has to be more than a few imams seeking to convert the infidels.

    The problem is they haven’t realised that their ideology prohibits any expression of white American, let alone WASP collective interest.

    So they conflate an essentially defensive act, like posting ‘It’s okay to be white’ posters in respsose to the obviously unhinged anti-white aggression we’ve seen percolate from the students and faculty of the humanities the last 5-6 years with an aggressive act.

    They can’t see the aggression against white Americans as aggression since they’ve policed speech so much they aren’t challenged by another perspective.

    The idea is that “it’s ok to be white” is so obviously acceptable to a reasonable person that when The Establishment loses its shit, People Will Realize.

    Wrong. Especially not at university.

    Part of the attraction of Wokeness is that it’s so obviously nonsensical. iSteve readers are nerdy men, and think people are interested in being accurate. Not true. To a lot of people you’d find at a university (fill in yourself), the more obviously wrong the idea, the more attractive it is.

    Why? It allows you to exercise your verbal trickery skills to the full. When you’re about 20 and sort of intelligent, dressing up an obviously erroneous idea so that it sounds plausible is the coolest thing ever. Getting away with it produces an intelligence high that types like that neeeeed. And then, because the difference between you and that reasonable person is so enormous, you have carte blanche to ratchet up the hatred to hysterical heights. Which is fun.

    So, IOTBW is giving them exactly what they want; something that will be a delight to overreact to.

    British Imperialists said “It’s Okay to be Asian-Indian” was despicable.

    Zionist Yinon-ist Imperialists say “It’s Okay to be Arab” is despicable.

    The funny thing is the elites talk as if whites shouldn’t embrace white identity because they are the masters of the world. They say it’s an act of arrogance. But “It’s Okay to be White” isn’t a show of white pride and vanity but the suggestion that whites are under the power of ANOTHER people, esp the Jews who’ve defamed white identity in order to make whites serve Jewish supremacism.

    Now, it’s true that there are many rich and affluent whites, but many whites are not well off and some are in truly bad straits. White privilege is a class thing, not a universal truth among ALL whites. Indeed, unless you have connections, the average white faces many more obstacles than other groups. Also, even well-off whites can only succeed as individuals, not thrive or survive as a PEOPLE.
    So, if rich Jews can confidently lend support to less fortunate Jews in the name of Jewish solidarity in US, EU, and Israel, well-off whites must only think of themselves as deracinated individuals who must have NO solidarity or preference for their own kind as a whole. It’s like comprador-collaborator local cuck elites could do well by serving the British or French empire but could not work for the good of their own people like Gandhi and Ho Chi Minh later came to.

    This is why it is time for White Liberation or White National Liberation from Jewish Supremacism. Privileged whites must stop being self and treasonous weasels who only care about their own individual success and think of the good of the European race as a whole. It’s Not Okay to be a White Collaborator to Jewish Supremacist Power.

    “It’s ok to be white” is much better; it appeals to the basic sense of decency of normal Americans and makes people such as this president look completely unhinged and hateful when they try to respond to it. “Islam is right about women” might be nice for trolling ideologues, but normal people, being mostly egalitarian and uninterested in pronouncements of foreign religions, the slogan sounds kooky and possibly jihadist.

    It is okay to be White there, and increasingly, “Hispanic.” City Data says Danbury is:

    28.3% “Hispanic”
    10.2% Black
    6.3% “Asian”
    4.8% Other

    What this nearby Connecticut resident finds most notable about Danbury is … nothing. I didn’t even know there was a college there.

    Agreed. The easiest way for a white man to do the “flight from white” would be to convert to Islam. Islam has no clergy, so there is no ritual, other than to say to another Muslim that “There is one God, and Muhammad is a prophet”. Once converted, you can practice any way that you like, so it doesn’t impose any burden on your life. And you have acquired this great advantage: you are no longer white.

    “Black Lives Matter” is fine – it’s when you respond “All Lives Matter” that you’re engaging in the knuckle-dragginest hate and bigotry that there ever was.

They’re like outside linebackers with purple eyeshade and hoop earrings, generating that vague musk of malevolence that pretty much guarantees the news clippings about you in the local pennysaver will mention “gruesomely tortured for his PIN numbers over many hours.”

    See what I mean? – an “it’s okay to be white” sign on oaktag pasted onto bus kiosks and campus bulletin boards is like freakin’ My Lai compared to being inundated-cum-marinated in culturally-encouraged hatred and loathing of white people who don’t seem all that broken up over the fact.

The absolute worst was something somebody wrote in permanent marker on a bathroom stall. Then they talked darkly of “vandalism” but, I mean–if it is restroom graffiti that the police are going to investigate, they would have to double their ranks and do literally nothing else.

    I don’t remember anyone ever facing charges, even when they identified the perpetrators (generally, hoaxers).

    They end up treating Black Lives as especially precious but that’s neither their intention nor where they start out. The implication of saying that Black Lives matter is to imply that the default assumption of normies/the system is that they don’t, and that the BLMers are in possession of special insight denied to normies still living in colorblind land. The talk of Black Bodies is evocative of the other context where one speaks of bodies in reference to people – Dead Bodies.

    It’s the gnostic thrill of being in on this special insight that draws spoiled, snobby (mostly white) rich kids into it.

    As the guy who tore down that banner illustrates, it’s the same with denying It’s OK to be White. The banner threatens his status as someone possessing the special insight that the deck is stacked for the benefit of white people. Ironically (?) that very clubbable Gnosticism serves to enact that which it purports to deplore, as the Woke are overwhelmingly White and of a certain Class.

    So if humanity in total is represented how can that be racist in any fashion? Would crossing out “white” say you are “anti racist?” Maybe to the Leftists.

    There are a number of respected psychological studies which suggest that small children and infants are more attracted to adults of their own race. And we see this same effect every day when communities voluntarily form and various ethnic/racial groups tend to live around those similar to themselves. Not simply skin color but all kinds of things: food, music, religion, culture, etc. This isn’t to say everyone does that, or that in most places there isn’t quite a bit of mixture. But often people like living around people like themselves as much as possible.

    How many non whites do you see at the opera? How many Asians attend black rap concerts? Some, sure but few. One effect of Leftist fascism is that the only way for a white person to not be accused of racism is to stay only around whites. And never comment about non whites in any fashion. See, that kind of fear guarantees a “colorblind” society. Stay in your own ghetto and shut up!

    That was the Harold Washington vs. Bernard Epton mayoral election of 1983. That was when Daley type Southwest Side bungalow belt Whites serenaded the heretofore very liberal Republican, rabbinically bearded, Epton, at rallies, by shouting, “Ber-nie, Ber-nie!”

    Epton had in his younger years been a Republican elected to the lower house of the State Legislature from a very liberal district under a simple form of proportional representation Illinois had from the immediate post-Civil War era to about 1970. (One senator and three representatives per district. Voters given three votes, for representative, to give to one or divide between two or three candidates. Parties normally each nominate two candidates for representative, and the stronger party tends to elect two, the weaker party one. The senator in each district is elected in the usual way.)

    Washington won by a razor thin margin. He had won by a similar margin in the Democratic primary in a 3 way race with incumbent Jane Byrne and local elected prosecutor Richie Daley, son of the legendary Mayor Richard J. “Shoot to kill” Daley (Died in office sometime in ’76-77.)

    Washington was the first black mayor of Chicago. Mrs. Byrne was the first woman. Recently elected incumbent Lori Lightfoot is the second woman, third Black, and first openly same sex attracted Mayor of Chicago.

    As I predicted in a previous comment, the Volokh Conspiracy law blog has weighed in on this case.

    “It’s OK to Be White” Flyers Lead to Promise of “Severest Disciplinary Action” by Western Conn. State U.
    Same for “Islam is right about women” flyer — both are labeled “hate-filled flyers” by the University, and apparently the police and the FBI are investigating the distribution of the flyers.

    https://reason.com/2019/11/04/its-ok-to-be-white-flyers-lead-to-promise-of-severest-disciplinary-action-by-western-conn-state-u/

    But the flyers consisted solely of the messages “It’s OK to be white” and “Islam is right about women.” (I confirmed this with a spokesman for WCSU.) Such messages are of course fully protected by the First Amendment.

    It’s not clear whether the “Islam is right about women” message is meant (or will likely be understood) literally, as support for certain kinds of discrimination against women; facetiously, as a dig against Islam; or as a means of pointing out a perceived inconsistency among some people who both condemn sexism and supposed “Islamophobia.” But any of those messages is constitutionally protected.

    In addition to the two flyers, a flag was hung in a building window:

    The university spokesman also mentioned to me that an “alt-right flag” (seemingly the so-called Kekistan flag) was “posted on a classroom building window along with some of the flyers.”

    (This was not mentioned in the Hartford Courant story.) Offensive flags, of course, are constitutionally protected just as are offensive words. Indeed, the very first case in which the Supreme Court struck down government action on freedom of expression grounds, Stromberg v. California (1931), involved a flag (there, a Communist flag).

    Volohk points out that attempts to use existing school regulations would be easy to counter by showing politically inconsistent enforcement:

    I should note that, if the school has content-neutral rules forbidding posting any material in classroom building windows, leaving flyers on university property, or posting them in places other than designated bulletin boards, those neutral rules could be enforced in this situation, if they are evenhandedly enforced against others who violate the rules, regardless of viewpoint.

    But I very much doubt that violating any such rules normally leads to expulsion, criminal prosecution, or even police investigation. And it seems quite clear from the University’s statement that the objection isn’t to littering or posting that violates such rules, but precisely to the message that the material expresses.

    Finally, a commenter points out some of the observations made here:

    The irony here is that the if the alt right paid this university president to advertise for them, he couldn’t have come up with a better advertisement campaign.

    By overreacting to the message, he affirmatively corroborates the idea not just that white people are under attack and their rights are trampled on, but that the establishment actively hates them. By characterizing the simple and objectively inoffensive idea that “white people are OK” as hate speech, he is not just legitimating but actively advocating for the necessity of, the alt-right’s core message.

    I have to confess that it’s ingenious manipulation of his reflexes. You would think a university president would have the capacity to think before acting, and to realize that he is dealing with a matador before seeing red and blindly charging the cape.

    There’s a location issue here that might be getting assumed away by persons maintaining privileged, prejudiced, Western, and, dare I say, golf-course influenced conceptions of what a college campus should look like. Kidding.

    But seriously, where exactly were the leaflets “left around”?

    According to the linked news story, the leaflets “were left around a residence and classroom hall just off the WCSU main green on the midtown campus on White Street in Danbury.” Crystal clear, huh?

    Per my search via Bing, maps, it looks like White Street is a public through street, with, for like a block, ‘campus’ on both sides.

    Is the road for that few hundred meters (?) under state university jurisdiction? What about the sidewalk?

    Also, by my count that local story uses the phrase ‘left around’ all three times it refers to the location. (That repetitiveness is what set me off on this probably ridiculous investigation.)

    So, maybe the leaflets were left —placed, affixed, etc. not on campus but off, specifically on a public street (White Street, Route 6?) or sidewalk or a streetlight pole or something?

    And if it was technically ‘off-campus’ as I suspect might be the case, that might explain the call to the local, state, and federal police. More tools for the investigation? Maybe there are video blind spots in this liminal zone?

    Devil’s Advocate angle on behalf of the Dean: if it was technically off campus but effectively right there, ‘in the face’ of the students using that street, he might have thought, or might have been advised, that if he _didn’t_ report this to those other authorities, that he then might be exposing himself and the school to potential present or future civil liability from non-white students and faculty or whomever for permitting a hostile environment or whatever? Maybe it’s not so much ‘baited’ as ‘get this crap off my hands/cover my you-know-what’?

    The main campus is a rather tiny place located between White Street and Osborne Street. If you look at google maps, looking at the university from White Street, across from SoHo’s Pizza on the “western” side of the campus is a residence hall (can’t remember the name but its one of three on that campus: Berkshire, Fairfield, and White) . To the left of that, slightly behind it, is the Ives Concert Hall and another classroom building…you have to pass both to get to the university library from White Street, which is closer to Osborne Street.

    To the right of that residence hall is where the math classes were (which you can’t see from the street), and to the right of that building is the student center; then further right is the other residence halls and so on….

    Behind that residence hall, and between those buildings is the “main green”, if I recall correctly; and the leaflets were likely left either in the lobbies of that residence hall and one of the buildings to the left (probably the other building next to the Ives Concert Hall) because students would loiter in those areas and leave all sorts of stuff- my memory is both had big comfy chairs and tables. Or, they were left around one of the campus bulletin boards on the outskirts of the green that collect all sorts of material from students passing between buildings.

    ———-

    I’ve been on that campus and took a few general credits here&there to save some money and graduate quicker. A lot of good it did me, as it was a headache getting them transferred between schools. As for social justice, the administration and professors were loopy then, and this was before the Great Awokening. My impression was that a lot of kids were there for vocational purposes and so subject to the whims of every administrators’ & professors’ social signaling. While I do have horror stories from the experience, they really didn’t differ too much from other schools I’ve been to- again, this is all during the Great Slumber- maybe just sadder, because most of it was petty harassment of people who merely wanted a degree for white collar work.

    This guy is being dishonest. Highly unlikely that any native arab from the arabian peninsula could be as white (or as black) as a white (or black) American. Even after generations of mixing with white slaves from Europe, the Caucasus etc, swarthoids from Persia and blacks from Ethiopia, Somalia etc, the bedouins of the Hejaz, where Muhammad and his tribe lived, are still brown.

    The Hadith he is quoting were compiled by non-Arabs (from Persia) and they had a vested interest in portraying the founder of the religion that conquered and converted them as lighter than their conquerors, many of whom were Africans/Abyssinians. Quite like how Christians from Northern Europe paint Jesus as a blue eyed blond, which he could not have been.

    The Arabs of the Hejaz were equal opportunity slavers: they enslaved persians, turks, chechens, slavs, iberians and even other arabs as well. The two most famous slaves from the time of Muhammad are Bilal the Abyssinian and Salman the Persian, both of whom converted to Islam and became highly respected members of the community. Mohammad’s adopted son Zayd was at first an Arab slave owned by his wife.

    – part of a system that gives you power and support.

    It’s a lot like religion. You want to be on a winning team that helps you make sense of the world, succeed, belong, and feel and look good. Truth can help or hurt an idea, but it’s only one of several attributes.

    Admittedly, when saying things like “Jesus walked on water” or “race doesn’t exist”, the apparent absurdity of the statement isn’t a bug, it’s a feature: the idea carries a lot more weight if it’s absurd than if it was simply and obviously true.

    Instead what I recommend is to tweak this message in to something more specific like a sub set of White European Americans.

    “It’s OK to be … Italian American, Polish American, Greek American”.

    This is what these White ethnic holidays are designed to do – promote pride in their people. Columbus Day is the Italian American pride day. Our side was incredibly lazy and stupid not to reach out to Italian Americans on Columbus day same as our side is very lazy and stupid not to make Sept 11th the unofficial day to champion immigration restriction to keep out Islamists like Muhammed Ata that want to murder us.

    A government employee with such views about freedom of expression? He should be summarily fired for such views, and/or prosecuted for civil rights violations if he follows through on his threats.

    “… including dismissal … ”

    He is also putting his institution, and the state, at liability risk from anyone who sues after being “disciplined.” The university’s general counsel urgently needs to generally counsel him.

    “… slammed the incident as despicable, utterly unacceptable and disgusting” … “revolting actions” … “sick and outrageous behavior.”

    A leader has to demostrate circumspection in the words he uses. What language does he have left in his repertoire if, say, heaven forbid, a Muslim blows up a residence hall? Or, much worse, a neo-Nazi burns a cross in front of the black studies department? He’s crying wolf and using up all his putative moral authority.

    “I am both shocked and immensely saddened…”

If not, then in any sane society, the faculty senate, trustees, governor, etc. would conclude that this guy is just too deranged to be occupying a position of any trust (to the extent that president of Western Connecticut State U. is such).

    At a minimum, add this to the list of examples of societal decay when someone has the luxury to indulge in such reckless language (and, no doubt, action behind it) instead of actually doing his job.

  211. Isn’t now the right time to publish “It’s NOT okay to be white” posters?

    That would be the opposite of racist by implication.

    How would they condemn those sentiments?

    Watch their heads explode!
