The university of Maryland Police responded to white nationalist posters at four locations on the campus Monday.
This is the first time police have been called about these kinds of fliers since December, when white nationalist posters were reported at Marie Mount Hall, Tydings Hall, the Lee Building and LeFrak Hall.
Two posters glued to a wall on the Chemistry Building directed students to the website of Vanguard America. The group’s manifesto states, “Our America is to be a nation exclusively for the White American peoples.”
There were also similar posters reported at the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building, in the courtyard between the A.V. Williams Building and the Computer Science Instructional Center and on a dumpster outside of Symons Hall.
At about 9 a.m., professor Osvaldo Gutierrez and his wife saw the posters hanging on the Chemistry Building wall. Gutierrez immediately approached professor Jeff Davis, who called University Police, he said. The posters have since been removed.
University Police received the reports between about 9:30 a.m. and 12:25 p.m., spokeswoman Sgt. Rosanne Hoaas said.
One poster read, “A notice to all white Americans: it is your civic duty to report any and all illegal aliens to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. They are criminals. America is a white nation.”
“You hear about this stuff on the news, but I never really imagined it happening here,” said Gutierrez, who is of Mexican descent. “It’s really disturbing, and it’s not something you want to see, especially as a person of color.”
