Hitler themed valentine sparks campus criticism

file491296431596An anti-semitic valentine card given to a student by a member of College Republicans at Central Michigan University, has drawn swift criticism from the campus community.

Officials say the card was made as part of an event sponsored by College Republicans and then given out in a bag. In a release the group apologized for any offense.

Carolyn Dunn is with the Office of Inclusion and Diversity on campus. She said an investigation is underway into who created the card, but she couldn’t say if any disciplinary action will be taken.

“As far as we know the investigation is ongoing. We can’t say what will happen until the investigation is concluded. Our office is responding the way we always do: with education.”
Dunn says the office of inclusion and diversity will plan programming to respond to the event.

In a release CMU President George Ross said the incident quote “is not consistent with our values and standards.”

A group of students gathered on campus to protest the hate speech, several members of the College Republicans were in attendance.
