Ironically, if this message had been about any minority group...

...it would have been heralded as evidence of our national decline into scary Facism.

But it is only about College Republicans, so who cares?

Could be a hoax, except it doesn't fit the SOP of hoaxes, which usually involves a what fever swamp leftists think a conservative would say being made in the middle of a leftist enclave. This is an idiosyncratic message that fits what leftists actually say in the middle of a leftist enclave.

//The University of California at Berkeley’s College Republicans have received several death threats in recent weeks, with unidentified vandals posting stickers across campus calling for members of the group to be beheaded or lynched.

But the most recent round of sticker threats comes less than two months after students, protesting the College Republican’s speaking event for Milo Yiannopoulos, caused $100,000 in damage on campus.

A spokesman for the group told the student newspaper that the College Republicans have long received threats, dating back even before the November election.

A College Republicans spokeswoman also said that members had been “pepper sprayed, sucker-punched and verbally and physically assaulted for voicing their opinions and beliefs” on campus. And in March, members caught another student destroying one of the College Republicans’ signs, posting video of the vandalism to their Facebook page.

By deadline, neither UC Berkeley nor the university’s police department responded to Heat Street’s queries about how many individual reports they had received about threats or vandalism targeting the College Republicans.//
