4chan is at it again having relaunched their “it’s okay to be white” campaign at Western Connecticut University. As with previous campaigns, the operation involves simply posting up pieces of paper that read: “It’s Okay To Be White” in large print. It’s frankly amazing given the operation’s simplicity we don’t see more copy cats.
There is not denigration of other races, no hateful messages or symbology. Merely the simple phrase declaring it is not bad to be white. This triggered the university’s administration that has now dragged in the local Danbury police, the Connecticut State Police, and the FBI to investigate what University President John Clark called a “Hateful Attack.”
According to a statement from WCSU President Dr. John B. Clark, issued on November 1st, 2019 over on the WCSU website, he stated…
“Last night, our university community was subjected to the random distribution of hate filled flyers and inscriptions on our university property. I wanted to assure you that a full scale police investigation is underway, which includes frequent communication with representatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Connecticut State Police, and Danbury Police with review of footage from our surveillance cameras as well as interviews with individuals who may have witnessed any of this despicable and utterly unacceptable behavior.”
“I am both shocked and immensely saddened about this sick and outrageous behavior, especially since our university has worked so hard to be a warm, diverse and caring community for all, no matter their race, color, gender, sexual orientation/identification, disability and age. All members of our community should feel comfortable, safe and secure at the university. Indeed, we all should feel that WCSU is our second home.”
Western Connecticut University does indeed sound like a warm, diverse caring community that believes it is so wrong to be white that it warns three different investigative departments to locate the person or people who had the audacity to speak such vile words. Who wouldn’t want to be part of such a community?
The issue was also covered by YouTube outlet Unsafe Space.
It seems you either die ignorant or live long enough to see yourself become Alex Jones. Considering he just road an armored vehicle into a Clinton Rally shouting Epstein didn’t kill himself, not a terrible fate to be had.
