There is no more Indiana University White Student Union. The group had been launched by an IU student with help from Towson University’s Matthew Heimbach. Just like the Towson group, the IU group claimed to be a celebration of European Heritage. However, theFacebook Page (now liberated, more on that in a second) told a much different story. Rather than sharing old cooking recipes from the motherland or celebrating Danish folk dancing, the page exclusively linked to hate groups such as the Council of Conservative Citizens and White Rabbit Radio and our bestest good friend John King.
While still working under the veil of anonymity, this student and a couple of his cohorts were fond of vandalizing the Indiana University campus by tagging “#WhiteGenocide” all over the place. Though the student now claims that his vision for the group was high-jacked by white supremacists, his new found friends are pretty obsessed with a fictional phenomenon they refer to as “White Genocide”. Just not enough to take two minutes to get on the US census website and see that while the “white” population is not growing as fast as other demographic groups, the number of “white” persons in the United States has increased and is projected to continue increasing for at least another ten years. How exactly does a population experience growth and genocide simultaneously?
Twenty-four hours after being made aware of this group’s creation, we at HARM were able to locate the student responsible for this group’s formation. After publishing his identity online, the student made legal threats against us and tried to solicit other white supremacist websites for assistance.
