“UVA’s deputy spokesperson, said that the page owner likely is not a part of the UVA community”
A few years ago, several schools were hit with a similar hoax that caused uproars on campus.
The Daily Caller reports:
‘White Student Union’ Hoax Targets UVA
The “White Student Union” hoax that targeted universities in 2015 has spawned a fictitious University of Virginia chapter, according to a Sunday report.
The Facebook page posing as a UVA student organization seems to have been created Friday, according to The Cavalier Daily.
“We were inspired to create this group by the desecration of European-American monuments and hope that our initiative will move our brothers and sisters across the country to do the same,” reads the pinned post on the group’s Facebook page. “We unapologetically provide a safe space for white students to air their true feelings about the future of our nation, discuss and reflect on the lessons laid down for us by our great European writers, philosophers, and artists, and develop a positive program to restore the pioneering will and greatness of our unique and virtuous people.”
“We condemn the cowardly campaigns of moral subjugation and propaganda that seek to instill self-hatred and surrender within European-American youth and justify the continued invasion and degradation of the lands, institutions, and cultural heritage that is rightly ours.”
However, the message is very similar to messages posted by purported white student unions at other schools such as Pennsylvania State University, the University of Cincinnati, and the University of California, Berkeley, reported The Cavalier Daily. Matt Charles, UVA’s deputy spokesperson, said that the page owner likely is not a part of the UVA community and disavowed the content of the page.
