Students at various colleges nationwide were stunned and upset Friday to find anti-Semitic fliers (below) on campus printers. Many students initially assumed that someone in their library or residence hall had printed the flier. But as the day went on, more campuses reported the same flier on their printers. The flier -- including two swastikas -- accuses Jews of "destroying your country through mass immigration and degeneracy." A neo-Nazi group that runs the website called The Daily Stormer (named in the flier) took credit for hacking the various printers and expressed pleasure in the distress of students who found the fliers.
Colleges and universities that received the fliers denounced them and said that they were investigating how their printers were hacked and were taking steps to try to prevent further such hacking.
Among the institutions where the fliers showed up were Brown University, California State University at Long Beach, Clark University, DePaul University, Northeastern University, Oregon State University, Smith College, Princeton University, the University of California at Davis, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, the University of Oregon, the University of Rhode Island and the University of Southern California.
