George Washington University YAF: “GW YAF is not affiliated with these posters in any way, shape, or form”
It’s hard to be shocked these days by the tactics of the anti-Trump, anti-America “resistance” and its campus lackeys, but this blatant, intentional misrepresentation of a conservative organization by leftists on campus is appalling.
Young America’s Foundation was notified by administrators at George Washington University that fliers were being distributed on campus that egregiously misrepresent the YAF.
Administrators at The George Washington University notified GW YAF that shameful fliers had been posted on campus, made to look as though they were part of a GW YAF activism project. Of course, these ridiculous posters that attempt to paint all conservatives with a broad brush of racist xenophobia have no connection to GW YAF, and are just the latest attempt by disgruntled leftists to slow the advancement of conservative ideas at GW.
The problem is, this cheap trick was already foiled back in 2007 when leftists attempted to smear GW YAF’s name, but ultimately failed.
GW YAF issued the following statement in response to the resurfacing of the posters:
“On Friday, members of GW YAF were made aware of an Islamophobic poster hung around various campus locations, with our organization’s name on these posters.
GW YAF is not affiliated with these posters in any way, shape, or form, and we are disgruntled by their contents. Targeting a religion and attempting to defame another organization in doing so is childish, revolting, and distasteful.
GW YAF has been targeted with repeated acts of harassment, vandalism, and indecency for years, simply for being conservative. We are calling on GW to fully investigate these posters, and finally take a stand for conservative students who are continually the targets of acts of harassment, vandalism, and defamation from liberal students.”
Authorities at GW are looking at security footage to identify those responsible.
