Anti-Defamation League Report Documents Rise in Hate Group Activity on College Campuses

A new report from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) finds that since the beginning of the academic year last fall, there have been at least 107 incidents where White supremacist fliers have been posted on the campuses of colleges and universities across the United States. The report notes that the incidents have occurred on campuses in 32 different states. California and Texas have had the most incidents. At least 65 of these incidents have occurred since January 1.

According to the ADL most of these incidents can be traced to supporters of American Renaissance, Identity Evropa, or American Vanguard.

The report states that “White supremacists are mobilizing in hopes of translating their online activism to ‘real world’ action, and campuses – and young people – are prime targets, in part because they are still figuring out who they are, and what they believe.  Extremists also undoubtedly see value in recruiting a new generation that can carry the movement for years to come.”
