Ron Paul Supporter Wants To Start White Student Union
A student at a university near Baltimore wants to start a White Student Union. Matthew Heimbach of Towson University says there is a Black Student Union on campus that celebrates its heroes, and he wants to be free to do the same.
“We want to replicate what every student union does on campus,” wrote Heimbach, a Ron Paul supporter, in the university newspaper.
“Love your race,” the ad placed in the paper read. “Support a white student union.”
According to Heimbach, 17 students have expressed interest in joining the union. However, Heimbach claims he has been accused of hate speech.
“So Facebook banned me for a day and took down the Towson University White Student Union page for ‘hate speech,’” Heimbach posted on Facebook. “Funny enough the Towson University Black Student Union page is still up.”
Currently, the White Student Union is only in the works; it is not a Student Government Association-approved group. Should the White Student Union continue its efforts, some assume that the SGA will vote it down.
“After the headache of last year (Youth for Western Civilization), I’m afraid SGA might vote us down on principle,” he said. “But if we have the students, the adviser and the constitution, there’s no reason to allow us not to be SGA affiliated.”
