Former members of the group College Republicans United (CRU) at Arizona State University compiled a “dossier” documenting shocking views by leaders of the group — and then leaked it to the Phoenix New Times.
“Leaders of a conservative student club at Arizona State University used anti-Semitic symbols, made racist and homophobic comments, and appeared to advocate for eugenics, according to a dossier compiled this winter by former club members leaked to Phoenix New Times, the paper reported. “Two of the group’s leaders also appeared in photos apparently making light of the white nationalist vehicular murder in Charlottesville, Virginia.”
“The group formed in early 2018 by students who pushed for views outside traditional conservative beliefs,” the paper added.
Those views are now public.
“Remind me why we can’t have a eugenics policy again?” founder Richard Thomas reportedly asked next to a video of a special education teacher reading to a student living with disabilities.
Thomas also reportedly referred to the black rapper Childish Gambino as “degenerate monkey filth.”
“During what appears to be a discussion of Israel, Thomas appears to use an anti-Semitic symbol to refer to the Rosenbergs, the American Jews who were executed for espionage in the 1950s,” the New Times reported.
“I don’t believe homosexuality or this level of degeneracy is biological it’s a choice the ancient Spartans were all f*cking each other because it was in the culture same thing for feudal Japan a lot of them were bisexual,” Thomas reportedly wrote.
The dossier also featured a reported Facebook posting from Kevin Decuyper, the chair of Republicans United, of which CRU is a chapter organization.
When Decuyper was asked why he had a photo with “n****r” conservative commentator Candace Owens, he reportedly answered that is real views had to stay under the radar.
“I work in state politics and co-founded a right wing organization that’s already called Nazis/alt-right regularly so it helps me a lot to be camoflaged [sic] and low key on my public profile because it helps to have the support of the right wing community who thankfully don’t know my more extreme views,” Decuyper reportedly explained.
