White Supremacists Post Racist Fliers with Hidden Blades on California Campus to Harm Those Who Find Them

Students at the University of California, Davis could wind up with a nasty cut on their hands if they try and remove any of the white supremacist propaganda posted on campus following the election of Donald Trump last week.

According to an advisory posted to the university’s ASUCD Office of Advocacy and Student Representation Facebook Page, some of the hate speech fliers posted around campus had been laced with razor blades to intentionally harm anyone who tried to take them down.

“If you see posters with hate speech on them around Davis with OPAQUE tape (often blue), PLEASE be careful if removing them because people have been putting RAZOR BLADES in the tape to cause injury to those who try to do so,” the notice reads.

A handful of students and university faculty have already been cut by the small, hidden blades.

The Davis Enterprise reports that the fliers were discovered Monday posted on buildings throughout the campus. They read, “Are you sick of anti-white propaganda in college? You are not alone. THERIGHTSTUFF.BIZ.”

The web address printed on the flier is reportedly linked to a local hate group who rallies against Black Americans, gay people and liberals, per the Sacramento Bee. School officials said similar hate-speech fliers have appeared on the campus in the past but are reluctant to assume they’re somehow linked to the results of last week’s election.

“If it is, it’s now time for us to try to come together and chart a positive path forward as a nation,” said UC Davis spokesperson Kimberly Hale. “It’s okay to have differences of opinion, but it should always be done with respect and civility.”

Hale said the fliers have since been removed, as they “were found to be in violation of our Principles of Community.” The university spokeswoman also went on to note that the hate-filled posters weren’t exclusive to the UC Davis Campus. The same fliers were also found at San Francisco State University, the University of Albany and the University of Buffalo in this past week. Another flier was discovered at the University of Iowa back in October, the Davis Enterprise reported.
This is the second incident of white supremacist groups targeting the university’s campus in the last year. Eight months ago, UC Davis and surrounding universities were spammed with anti-Semitic fax messages from an unidentified hate group.
“It wasn’t locally generated,” Hale said of the printed messages.
