Student Group Furious After Bigoted Valentines Show Up Around Campus

A student organization at Central Michigan University offended most of the campus when a member of the group handed out anti-Semitic Valentine's. The inflammatory cards feature an image of Adolph Hitler, and the sentiment, "My love 4 u burns like 6,000 Jews."

It's signed, "XOXO, Courtney."

The card was collected as part of a Valentine's Day party hosted by the Central Michigan University College Republicans. The party coordinators collected a large number of cards in a bag, then handed the cards out to students.

An image of the Nazi Valentine card quickly started circulating around social media when angry students got hold of it. The outcry of angry messages has prompted apologies from the group.

“At tonight’s College Republican meeting, we had a Valentine’s Day party, in which each member decorated a bag and other members placed valentines inside of others’ bags," said the College Republicans in a statement on Facebook. "Unfortunately, a very inappropriate card was placed into a bag without other members’ knowledge. A bag was then given away to students sitting in Anspach, once again without members’ knowledge of its contents. The College Republicans as an organization did not distribute this valentine. We in no way condone this type of rhetoric or anti-Semitism. We apologize for any offense, and want students to know that we do not tolerate this sort of behavior.”

The apology isn't enough, according to some people. "You don’t get to distribute Valentine’s Day cards and then say you’re not responsible for what they say," read a comment by Isaac Mikula-Wineman.

“We are deeply disappointed by last night’s situation with a Valentine card containing an inappropriate sentiment that was produced during a student organization meeting. This is not who we are as a campus community,” wrote CMU President George Ross in a statement. “Such hurtful, offensive language, while protected by the First Amendment, is unacceptable and is not consistent with our values and standards.”

The Republican group has been slammed for deleting posts that point to the person(s) responsible for the offensive card.
