Texas State police seek those threatening diversity advocates

🕐 1 min read

SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) — Police at a Central Texas university want to know who is behind fliers posted on campus that urge formation of “tar and feather vigilante squads” to “arrest and torture” campus diversity advocates.

The fliers posted around the Texas State University campus Thursday morning featured a picture of armed white men labeled “Texas State Vigilantes” beneath a U.S. flag. It professes support for President-elect Donald Trump and Republican majorities in Congress. Aside from the acts against diversity advocates, the flier also urges augmenting a border wall by irradiation with nuclear waste and stocking the Rio Grande with alligators and piranhas. It also urges the sabotage of campus toilets.

Campus police Sgt. Rolando Belmares says at least five fliers were posted around the San Marcos campus before a campus anti-Trump demonstration.
