"My love 4 u burns like 6,000 jews,” read the card handed to two students by a member of the College Republicans group at Central Michigan University.
Central Michigan University school leaders said Friday that the person responsible for an anti-Semitic Valentine’s Day card that was produced during a campus Republican group meeting was not a student but “readily admitted her role.”
The card was in a bag that was handed to some students Wednesday night by a member of the College Republicans, which immediately apologized while distancing itself from the incident. The card, which the group called “very inappropriate,” shows Adolf Hitler alongside the words “my love 4 u burns like 6,000 jews,” according to Central Michigan Life, a student newspaper.
