“The White Student Union at Towson University, one of 17 recognized hate groups in the State of Maryland, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, has announced plans to conduct night patrols, even though the university is one of the safest colleges in the area. The group’s president, Matthew Heimback, a former member of Youth for Western Civilization (YWC) and the American Third Position Party (ATPP) – a recognized White Supremacist Group — was responsible for scrawling “White Pride” on the campus during his time as president of YWC, and recently ranted at a local conservative convention about how “blacks” should be grateful to their slave masters for providing them food and shelter. Mr. Heimback is an unrestrained racist who has no interest in conducting public safety patrols. Instead, he seeks to recreate witch hunts and lynch mobs to ‘protect white women from thuggery.’
“Take a stand against racism and hate! Send a message to university President Loeschke and the administration at TU!”
