The Central Michigan University College Republicans on Wednesday hosted a Valentines Day party featuring anti-Semitic cards handed out by a member of the organization, the Morning Sun reports.

The card, which had a picture of Adolph Hitler on the front read, “My love 4 u burns like 6,000 Jews.”

In a Facebook post, the college Republicans apologized for the card, blaming the situation on “a card placed into a bag without other members’ knowledge.”

“At tonight’s College Republican meeting, we had a Valentine’s Day party, in which each member decorated a bag and other members placed valentines inside of others’ bags. Unfortunately, a very inappropriate card was placed into a bag without other members’ knowledge,” the apology reads.

“A bag was then given away to students sitting in Anspach [Hall], once again without members’ knowledge of its contents. The College Republicans as an organization did not distribute this valentine. We in no way condone this type of rhetoric or anti-Semitism. We apologize for any offense, and want students to know that we do not tolerate this sort of behavior.”

In a statement, University President George Ross said while the students’ “offensive language” is protected by the First Amendment, the Valentine’s Day card “is unacceptable” and “not consistent with our values and standards.”

“We caution against concluding that the action is representative of the entire student organization or its members and remind all that threatening others as a result of such an incident can have legal consequences,” he added. “We once again urge each of our students, faculty and staff to be beacons of peace, respect, inclusivity and civility — to be role models of integrity, dignity and leadership.”

In an interview with the student paper, CMU’s College Republicans president Mackenzie Flynn denied knowledge of the card, and pointed out the bags were intended for members only.

“While still not appropriate, I want to clear up that they did not create it themselves,” Flynn said.

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday blamed President Donald Trump for what he admitted was an "awful" debate.

In his first TV appearance following Tuesday night's debate, Wallace noted that Trump had interrupted either Democrat Joe Biden or himself 145 times.

"He bears the primary responsibility for what happened on Tuesday," Wallace said. "At a certain point, 45 minutes in, I called a halt to the debate for a moment and said this really isn't serving America and please stop the interruptions."

Wallace complained that his team had spent "hundreds" of hours preparing for the debate only to have it spoiled by the president.

Trump’s plot to steal the election can be defeated — here’s how

During Tuesday night's debate, Donald Trump, who has gone pure fascist, once again escalated his efforts to scare people out of voting. He encouraged his followers to engage in voter intimidation under the guise of "poll watching," and told armed hate groups to "stand by." Trump also floated a number of baseless conspiracy theories about "voter fraud" that are clearly designed to discourage voting and rationalize legal efforts to stop votes from being counted.
