An Alt-Right Group Is Trying to Recruit College Kids Like It’s a Frat
In early August, members of a white nationalist group called Identity Evropa took the stage at a pro-immigration forum at a Miami community college and unfurled a banner that proclaimed “Secure Our Border.” The political action was reportedly part of the group’s “Project Siege” campaign—a guerilla recruitment effort for new members of the alt-right taking place on college campuses across the country.
Now, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Identity Evropa’s recruitment campaign has intensified since the events in Charlottesville. The ADL found that there were 65 instances of Identity Evropa distributing propaganda on college campuses in 2016. The hate-group tracker projects a growing trend, as it’s identified at least a dozen universities in three states that have been targeted by the group only two weeks into the fall semester.
