Hitler-Themed Valentine Card Declaring ‘My Love for You Burns Like 6,000 Jews’ Distributed to Central Michigan U Students
A Valentine’s Day card with a photo of Hitler next to the message, “my love 4 u burns like 6,000 [sic] jews,” was distributed at an event at Central Michigan University (CMU) on Wednesday, causing a flurry of outraged posts on social media, the campus newspaper Central Michigan Life reported.
The card, included in holiday-themed bags, was handed out to students by a member of the CMU College Republicans, which immediately condemned the “very inappropriate” prank, pulled — it insisted — without the knowledge of the rest of the club.
“The College Republicans as an organization did not distribute this valentine,” the group said. “We in no way condone this type of rhetoric or antisemitism. We apologize for any offense, and want students to know that we do not tolerate this sort of behavior.”
This is the latest in a string of similar incidents reported on American campuses. As The Algemeiner reported last month, a Jewish student at Wisconsin’s Beloit College received a note reading, “Kike, you should be gassed for what you say & do on this campus. Be worried C**T.”
