Missouri Chancellor Condemns Pro-Hitler Flyer Found in Dorm

COLUMBIA, Mo. ― Police on the University of Missouri’s Columbia campus are investigating and the interim chancellor is condemning an anti-Semitic posting on a residence hall’s bulletin board.

Police Maj. Brian Weimer said Tuesday the flyer scrawled in magic marker with the words “Hitler rules” was found early Monday on a Gateway Hall bulletin board.

The case comes at a time the university still grapples with racial unrest on the Columbia campus. That’s where escalating November student protests over what activists said was administrators’ indifference to racial issues led to the resignations of the university system’s president and the Columbia chancellor.

The campus’ interim chancellor, Hank Foley, and the school’s diversity officer, Interim Vice Chancellor Chuck Henson, said in a joint statement Tuesday that “this type of vandalism attacks everyone.”
