Left-wing fliers at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill Call for Violence Against Trump Supporters, “Bash the Fash”

24

More inciting to war from the party of treason.

Fascists go under the name anti-fascists “antifa” — it’s Hitlerian.

Fliers at UNC-Chapel Hill circulated around campus inciting violence against Trump supporters.

The fliers (above) told readers that, “If you see something…do something!” and showed a Trump supporter’s “Make America Great Again” hat being stolen and burned, and a neo-Nazi being hit with a bat, which is emblazoned with the phrase “bash the fash.”

The university has condemned the fliers, with Chancellor Carol Folt writing in an email to the student body that, “The flyer and its message are the antithesis of the values that are the foundation of our University. It is not designed to spark civil discourse or encourage thoughtful debate. Its intentions are to incite violence, and there is no place for that here or in our society.”

UNC condemns flyer inciting violence against Trump supporters

By Will Rierson, Campus Reform, February 17, 2017:

University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill administrators condemned a flier found on campus encouraging violence against Donald Trump supporters, calling it antithetical to free speech.

The cartoon features two scenes: one in which a man’s “Make America Great Again” hat is stolen and burned, and another in which a neo-Nazi is bludgeoned by a bat bearing the inscription “Bash the Fash.”

University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill administrators condemned a flier found on campus encouraging violence against Donald Trump supporters, calling it antithetical to free speech.

The flier, which WRAL reports was found on a distribution box of The Daily Tar Heel student newspaper, featured a political cartoon captioned, “If you see something… Do something!”

“Its intentions are to incite violence, and there is no place for that here or in our society.”

The first portion of the cartoon shows a Trump supporter wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, which in the next panel is taken away and burned with a lighter. Next, a neo-Nazi with a Swastika tattoo is shown raising his hand in a salute, then being bludgeoned in the back of the head with a bat labeled “Bash the Fash.”

In an email to the student body Thursday, Chancellor Carol Folt described the flier as “expressing acts of violence to supporters of Donald Trump,” calling its message the “antithesis of the values that are the foundation of our university” because it was solely intended to “incite violence,” rather than promote the free exchange of ideas.

“It is not designed to spark civil discourse or encourage thoughtful debate,” Folt declared. “Its intentions are to incite violence, and there is no place for that here or in our society.”

The flier controversy comes in the wake of anti-Trump protests and violence across American college campuses. Anti-fascist demonstrators clad in black have organized or usurped protests at schools like the University of California, Berkeley and New York University in attempts to shut down visits from outspoken right-wing lecturers Milo Yiannopoulos and Gavin McInnes.

Folt concluded by urging students to contact university police and counseling services if any other offensive materials were sighted, and was cosigned by the provost, interim chief diversity officer, and two vice chancellors.

A photo of the flier was originally shared in the “Overheard at UNC” Facebook group, where its interpretation was hotly debated by students.

“Advocating violence against Carolina conservatives is totally the best,” UNC College Republicans Chairman Frank Pray commented sarcastically, prompting another student to point out that “swastikas aren’t ‘conservative’—they are racist, violent, and uphold the genocide of millions of people.”

“Swastikas have no business being associated [with] either conservatives or liberals, for that matter – but the destruction [of the] ‘Make America Great Again’ hat goes against the First Amendment,” a classmate agreed. “People should be able to express their political opinions.”

Other students concurred with the sentiment, as well.

“Seeing this picture and thinking ‘this advocated violence against Carolina conservatives!’ is horribly disingenuous towards conservatives as a whole,” said Noah Howell. “That underlying assumption is that swastikas represent some part of conservative ideology.”

Some students, however, took that reasoning in the opposite direction, charging that those who interpreted the cartoon as an endorsement of violence against conservatives were revealing fascist sympathies.

“Punching actual Nazis is part of the Carolina Way,” one student quipped, while another opined that “the only thing these threads prove is that Frank Pray is a fascist.”

“The alt-right is hot garbage,” added a third student, saying, “I’m not gonna fight for the rights of fascists when they’re trying to step all over everyone else’s across the world.”

In most cases, though, someone was willing to counter those accusations, including one student who pointed out that “if you support or advocate for stealing a stranger’s hat and burning it or otherwise assaulting him because he didn’t vote ‘correctly,’ as is depicted in this comic, you are closer to fascism than the average Trump voter.”

Some students even considered Trump supporters’ freedom of speech legitimate despite their political differences.

“So is this equating Trump supporters with neo-Nazis or what?” a commenter asked. “Kinda seems that way and I’m not okay with that, even if I do despise Trump and think everyone who voted for him is directly responsible for the degradation of our republic.”

    Far be it for me to suggest to Americans how to deal with this but Britain and the rest of Western Europe happens to be a few years further along the road in respect of this issue, your patriotism for your country always hid it a bit, but now your socialists look like ours, Internationalists.

    Something you could consider is to protest outside these places as a mirror would, reflect what you see BACK to them with slogans like ” Only BROWN SHIRTS smash up meetings and attack others with clubs.

    NAZI THUGS OFF OUR CAMPUS. NO to the violence of the DEMOCRATS. FREE SPEECH for ALL.

    I have a hunch that if not confronted effectively, this is going to get serious.

    • HaplessChild

      You are on point and we welcome your suggestions.
      I’m willing to bet my next two paychecks that these little dogdicks have never participated in a REAL street fight.
      We Americans are by and large good, tolerant people but only to a point.
      There is disgust brewing…

    • billdeserthills

      I agree, many Trump supporters are known to concealed carry. I’m in my 50’s and got a handicap plate, anybody who scares me with violence is dead meat

  • SJB

    Antifa should more accurately be called Anti-First Amendment

  • Dr. Doomsday

    Nothing like advocating assault with a deadly weapon, and assault to commit bodily harm. This is murder, and advocating stalking and murder. These a$$clowns need some prison time for their garbage.

    Note: illustration shows hitting from behind with a bat.
    1) Cowardly attack from behind.
    2) Hitting someone in that part of the head, with a blunt object, is usually fatal.

    So, tell me, you stupid protester losers, now that you advocate murder, what do you call peaceful or 1st Amendment about your trashy position?

        Just like a liberal—bring a baseball bat to a gunfight!

        • Mahou Shoujo

          There is no minimum intelligence require to be a liberal, a degree of sexual deviancy, illiteracy, sissy slapping violence, the ability to stands around chanting, and the ability to drag ones knuckles while walking, mouth breathing considered an asset.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    On an individual basis, “Bash the Trash” do unto others as you would have them do unto you, well, kiddies, it is time for you to get treated the way you treat others. Defund any educational institute that does not aggressively stop groups dedicated to overthrowing the government.

      Somebody should go to jail in this college before it’s too late.

    • MiddleSister

      Exactly. Stop going to these universities that are not condemning violence on campus & suppression of free speech. Don’t financially support them as alumni. This violence has got to stop!

    • Tatiana Covington

      Sue said groups and their members for damages, have them jailed, record assaults against yourselves. Also sue the schools for failures to protect their students in reasonable expectations of personal safety.

      If all else fails… just shoot the crazy lefties. Lots of states are concealed-carry these days (and it’s the same principle as missile-launching submarines which are very hard to find).

  • Deplorable Kulak

    Fascist “Antifa” is as Orwellian as it gets.

  • aebe

    Inciting to riot . Progressives are good at using mob tactics on lone citizens – Until they are shot or beaten as an act of self defense . Fie on the boogers . Almost enough to abandon ‘do not initiate violence’ , when they start acting out .

    Validate your 2nd Amendment Rights … Carry

  • conan_drum

    You can tell what they are by the infantile content of their slogans and chants

  • Mannie

    It is time for our side to start exacting a price in blood from the Democrats. “If they bring a knife, you bring a gun.” If they send one of yours to the hospital, send one of theirs to the morgue.” Take back our campuses, with blood if necessary.

  • Dorrie

    Those are Obama’s organized animals – he has 32,000, Alinski-trained terrorists throughout U.S. to riot and create chaos, with his non-profit group “Organizing For America,” which was fashioned just like the one by Hamas!

  • reyol

    This bashing behavior is exactly what the Black Shirts, the Brown Shirts and the Blue Shirts used to do. Fascist movements use goons to first take the streets and then take the government. These Antifa morons think that they are fighting fascists but they are using the same tactics for the same type of elitists that the historic Fascists did.

  • curtis

    This– is the legacy of the Obama administration, the ‘do whatever it takes to win’ mentality! Obama used the IRS against conservatives– division, race baiting, riots, whatever he could do to divide and conquer!

  • curtis

    Think now, with me for a moment. What if a conservative had placed one of these on a campus four, or eight years ago when Obummer was elected? What an uproar, it would have been on every news network throughout this country, not just here, and the libs would be beside themselves! As it is, hardly anyone will ever know it happened, but those who read this column!

  • Juanita

    What is being done abour the perpetrators! Has the University indicated that disciplinary action will be taken? That is what is necessary. Words of Condmnation are weak and meaningless unless backed up by sanctions.
