Massachusetts college student asked to remove anti-Nazi sign over ‘issues of inclusion’

32

Yes, because Nazism is a left-wing ideology. As for inclusion, tell it to my colleagues and me — who are banned from college campuses. This is life under boot of the left.

Massachusetts college student asked to remove anti-Nazi sign over ‘issues of inclusion

By Emily Birnbaum, The Hill, December 23, 2018:

Administrators at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst asked a student to take down a sign that said “f— Nazis” over “issues of inclusion,” according to a BuzzFeed News report.

Nicole Parsons told the news website on Sunday that she put up the sign in her dorm window after someone drew a swastika on a “Happy Hannukah” sign earlier this month.

“F— Nazis,” the sign read. “You are not welcome here.”

Her resident director a week later sent Parsons an email asking her to remove the sign, which said that the sign had created “mixed emotions in the community on how to proceed, issues of inclusion, and the ability to be active members of their community.”

The email, obtained by BuzzFeed News, noted that Parsons was not required to take down the sign due to freedom of speech.

“I am asking that you or your roommate take the sign down so that all students can be part of an inclusive residential experience,” the email reads.

“I was in absolute shock,” Parsons told BuzzFeed News. “This email tells me the university cares more about the feelings of Nazis than the safety of their students.”

The university in a statement posted on Facebook said the email was “poorly worded.”

“A poorly worded email from Residence Life staff asking students to take down the sign does not reflect the values of the campus, and it should not have been sent,” the statement says. “UMass Amherst emphatically rejects Nazis, and any other hate group, a view expressed in the students’ sign.”

“However, we are sensitive to the use of profanity, which some could find inappropriate,” the statement adds. “The university respects the students’ right to display the sign and it may remain up.”

Parsons told BuzzFeed that she has removed the sign because her roommate expressed concern about the attention it was receiving.
