The number of instances of propaganda being distributed at colleges campuses by white supremacists nearly doubled in 2019, according to a new report by the Anti-Defamation League.
“Although white supremacists have always leafleted U.S. campuses, their campaign targeting college students ramped up in January 2016 and has continued since then,” the ADL said in its report released Tuesday. “More than four years later, their on-campus propaganda efforts are still on the rise.
“Approximately one-fourth (630) of the total (2,711) white supremacist propaganda incidents in 2019 took place on campus – nearly double the 320 campus incidents counted in 2018.
“The 2019 propaganda efforts targeted 433 different campuses in 43 states and the District of Columbia. An overwhelming majority of the campuses (90%) were targeted only once or twice, which suggests that despite their increased efforts, white supremacists seem to have failed to gain a sustained foothold on campus.”
The ADL said three groups, Patriot Front, American Identity Movement and the New Jersey European Heritage Association were responsible or about 90% of the activity.
