3/3/17 – A handful of antisemitic posters were found on campus that contained two swastikas and text that read: “White man are you sick and tired of the Jews destroying your country through mass immigration and degeneration … join us in the struggle for global white supremacy at the Daily Stormer.”

BDS ACTIVITY (CALLS FOR BDS)
10/5/17 – An article in the university paper entitled, “The Israeli occupation of Palestine is terrorism” demonized and delegitimized Israel, stating, “strategic ethnic-cleansing made way for the Jewish state” and “currently, Israel maintains a regime of apartheid against Palestinian people.” The article further called for BDS, stating, “In just the past 10 years, students have successfully called for their universities to divest …Sooner than later, students at Texas State should take it upon themselves to evaluate whether they want their tuition dollars to contribute to the oppressive Israeli state.”

Texas State –  President Trauth denounces hateful communications
(Description note, “I am writing to you concerning the hateful, racist fliers that briefly were posted on our San Marcos Campus about a week ago. These anti-Semitic fliers appeared very early in the morning and were immediately removed by university police who found them when they were on routine foot patrols. Additionally, we have found other similar types of communications on campus and have moved quickly to remove them…I want to thank those of you who have contacted me about these offensive communications and ask you to continue to care deeply about our university. Just as we are committed to supporting freedom of expression as protected by the First Amendment, we also are committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive environment for all religions, and we vigorously condemn actions that aim to divide our university community. Once again I ask you to recommit to the values that have made Texas State a great university. Please do not let people outside our university define who we are as a community.”)
