Should we be surprised? Or has enough time passed to where we need to re-educate people on the horrors of WWII?

 

The College Republicans at Central Michigan University are under fire after an anti-Semitic Valentine card made it's way out of their private meeting and into public view. How sweet is this love note?

It's disgusting. Plain and simple. We (myself and AJ) have been saying this now for a while. Enough time has passed since World War II and the destruction that the Nazi Party caused that folks do not take word/name serious. We have seen an uptick in this recently. So before we have any sort of Nazi uprising let's make this clear.

 

THE HOLOCAUST, ADOLPH HITLER & THE NAZI PARTY ARE NOT FUNNY.

 

The College Republicans group at CMU have passed the buck and released this statement:

"At tonight's College Republican meeting, we had a Valentine's Day party, in which each member decorated a bag and other members placed Valentines inside of others' bags. Unfortunately, a very inappropriate card was placed into a bag without other members' knowledge. A bag was then given away to students sitting in Anspach (Hall on the CMU campus), once again without members' knowledge of its contents. The College Republicans as an organization did not distribute this Valentine. We in no way condone this type of rhetoric or anti-Semitism. We apologize for any offense, and want students to know that we do not tolerate this sort of behavior."

 

Meanwhile Central Michigan University calls for understanding:

"We are deeply disappointed by this situation, which does not represent who we are as a campus community. This type of hurtful, offensive language is unacceptable.

We caution against concluding that the action is representative of the entire student organization or its members and remind all that threatening others as a result of such an incident can have legal consequences. 

We once again urge each of our students, faculty and staff to be beacons of peace, respect, inclusivity and civility -- to be role models of integrity, dignity and leadership.

At Central Michigan University, we stand up against hate, protect the safety of all, and build bridges of understanding that bring people together."

 

 

So lets say it together again:

THE HOLOCAUST, ADOLPH HITLER & THE NAZI PARTY ARE NOT FUNNY.
