UC Davis Police Are Investigating Anti-Semitic Fliers Posted Around Campus

posted by Morgan Cook - 

Police at UC Davis have started an investigation into who left anti-Semitic fliers posted around the school's student union. Authorities say the papers were posted on Monday morning, but they're still unsure of who is responsible for putting them around the campus.

Chancellor Gary May said in a statement that the fliers violated the school's "posting policy," and after being found, they were immediately taken down.

The posters portrayed Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and others surrounding the new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with the words "Good Goy" on their heads.

It also included the phrase: "Every time some anti-white, anti-american, anti-freedom event takes place, you look at it and it's Jews behind it."

“The message on these fliers is reprehensible and does not represent who we are as a community,” Chancellor Gary May said. “Our Principles of Community expresses our dedication to mutual respect, understanding, compassion and caring for everyone, regardless of their religious affiliation, culture, ethnicity or gender. I ask each of you to uphold those values.”

"Anti-Semitism is alarmingly prevalent on college campuses, and needs to be acknowledged for what it is: blatant racism,” student body President Michael Gofman said on Tuesday. “The ASUCD Executive office is deeply upset and angered by these flyers, and we find it intolerable and inexcusable.”

A report was filed to University Police on Monday morning, and the school's student government is planning a workshop on anti-Semitism in the near future.
