Swastika in feces, not a hoax

Link to police report about the swastika in a University of Missouri dorm drawn in feces. Since it was witnessed by a police office, I am certain it really happened.

I am also pretty confident that the vandalism was perpetrated by someone who genuinely hates Jews and is not a false flag incident. False flag incidents never involve anti-Semitism, they are usually anti-black. I can’t imagine a Jew using feces to draw a swastika in order to draw attention to anti-Semitism. The type of SJWs who do stuff like that don’t even have any sympathy for Jews, because they see Jews as part of the privileged white power structure that oppresses minorities.

Who would so something like that? The type of white trash who hang out at the Stormfront website. They hate Jews over there. They hate Jews more than they hate blacks.

Of course, I’m not saying that anyone at the University of Missouri should resign or anything like that. A single incident of vandalism at a massively huge campus of 35,000 students doesn’t mean that the people in charge weren’t doing their jobs.

And I don’t know why black students are mad about the swastika, because it’s anti-Semitic and not anti-black.

A REMINDER: The last time there was a swastika at U of Missouri, the perp was a white kid who claimed to be inspired by unidentified YouTube videos. Not a Muslim, not a SJW black feminazi.

    Plenty of swastika hoaxes. I think feces is an unusual way to draw a swastika regardless of whether or not it’s a false flag.

        They are dumb enough to do something like deface their own symbol, in a drunken or drug induced act of hatred. Afterall, the victoms of that neonazi shooter who fired at a synagogue were all white gentiles; an act which ably demonstrates the hopeless state of that movement.

        Still, I agree it’s much, much more likely to be the doing of a Muslim or liberal.

  3. To kids these days, a swastika isn’t simply an anti-Semitic symbol, it’s an all-encompasing sign of white supremacy.

    Anyway, drawing something in poop is the real story here. Anyone who does that is disgustingly mentally ill, and their message shouldn’t be seen as reflective of anything or anybody.

    • The swastika is a pagan germanic symbol. Goebbels didn’t just make it up out of thin air. It’s not inherently anti-semitic. It’s almost more a symbol of whites throwing off the yoke of rome and christianity. There is certainly less of a place for Jews in self consciously Germanic and Celtic cultures that have shed Christian identity.

        It’s mostly associated with white nationalism now, that’s why it has those attributes. The symbol comes from India, not Germany; the Nazis took it up based on now-discredited ideas about the Aryans in northern India being from the same root as modern white people.

  4. Why would a neo-Nazi use feces to draw a swastika? It makes as much sense as a Muslim writing the Shahada using the same method. This is an obvious hoax by some not very stable individual. Also, the Nazi swastika is in the counter-clockwise form while the Missouri one is clockwise.

    Why? I am pretty confident that the vandalism was perpetrated by some drunk guy who just doodled.

    Its like the whole world periodically forgets how the world actually works. Have you ever been in a whole in the wall toilet? They are (used to be?) covered with graffiti: titty drawings, crude jokes, crude cartoons, and so on. Each idle drawing by some dude on the toilet isn’t a political statement.

    So why would a turd swastika be any different (or, rather, why would a turd swastika NECESSARILY be different)? In other words: the swastika appeared, in one bathroom, three months ago. Occham’s razor suggests it was a drunk doing random stuff. It is laughable that the police were called at all-much less that it was used as an excuse to fire a University President.

    Christ, the world is an idiot. In this one, Lion, you’re an idiot, too.

    • That’s how I perceive things. It was probably some morons who wanted to provoke people and cause a stir when they were drunk.

      I think that college students indulge in obnoxious “racist” displays because they’re under constant pressure to be PC at all times. Once they’re drunk and around people they trust, they do stupid things for the thrill and release of being able to cross the line.

      On the other hand, it does raise questions of why there are stupid people who make Swastikas out of feces in college to begin with.

It’s like when Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols used to wear a swastika t-shirt. It wasn’t some racial statement, it was solely to get people mad. However, It still could be an agent provocateur of the black lives matter left, because most people do regard the swastika as antiblack. The real Nazis weren’t much concerned about blacks though as there were next to none in Germany at the time.

  16. Oh Lion, I’m afraid it has become clear that you’re comically (or tragically) inept in rationally assessing situations involving Jews and potential antisemitism. Everyone has his blind spots…

    “False flag incidents never involve anti-Semitism, they are usually anti-black.”
    Never? Two at GWU come to mind. A girl in 2007 and a frat guy earlier this year.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2015/03/18/another-swastika-at-gw-this-one-was-posted-by-a-jewish-student/?wpisrc=nl_buzz

    “I can’t imagine a Jew using feces to draw a swastika in order to draw attention to anti-Semitism.”
    It is entirely conceivable. People with mental health issues do all sorts of crazy stuff. Furthermore, the person is pretending to be a racist– using shit makes it that much more hateful and raises chance it goes viral.

    However, in this case, I would bet on the campus SJW’s. Could’ve been a black student or could’ve been a white sympathizer– doesn’t make much difference, really.

    “And I don’t know why black students are mad about the swastika, because it’s anti-Semitic and not anti-black.”

    No, the swastika in the present context is not exclusively about the Jews. It’s popularly associated with prison gang skinheads and white nationalism.

    Drawing the swastika is easier logistically than KKK specific alternatives– a noose or a hood. The perpetrator just gets a rubber glove, finds someone who didn’t flush the toilet (don’t want own DNA), draw, and then bags glove and disposes elsewhere.

I’d love to see Dr. So-an-so interviewed as to examiner the motivations behind this. Here’s a writer discussing the hierarchy of victimhood and bemoaning that Jews have lost victimhood status. Is victimhood envy motivating people such as the woman in the above clip? Are some groups upset that blacks are consuming too much of the victimhood oxygen and leaving none for them?

        As opposed to “remembering the holocaust” this so-called “rabbi” claims Jews should stop being white and adopt “social justice” as their new identity. It looks to me like there’s a vacuum where religion, culture, etc used to be and Jews are trying to fill it with other things. Notice many gentiles have a similar problem — they’ve replaced their heritage and culture with all kinds of social justice, environmentalism and other lefty causes. Also notice more devoutly religious Jews and Christians don’t seem to have this problem.

  17. There’s a motorcycle bar near my house. Bands play there on Saturday nights. There are small swastikas in small black felt marker on the bathroom wall there, but then again I’d bet at some point in the 80s you could find similar swastikas on most bathroom walls of dive bars in most any state of the union. The only more ubiquitous graffiti in these kind of places is the word ‘fuck’, the phrase ‘XXX is a homo’ and a picture of somebody’s penis.

    There may be a fair overlap of dive bar habitues and Stormfronters but I doubt it is all that large. And motorcycle guys like to look tough and a swastika helps you achieve that look. Some gay guys in the 70s liked dressing up like Nazi style tough guys. The Ramones, led by Geoffrey Hymans of Long Island, admit they adopted a Nazi look for their band to draw attention.

  23. Who would so something like that? The type of white trash who hang out at the Stormfront website. They hate Jews over there. They hate Jews more than they hate blacks.

    It could have been someone like these guys, who were trying to attack Jews and blacks:

  24. I’ve been reading you for years. Let me give you a little inside track as a longtime reader. Southerners like Jewish people. They really do. I don’t believe it to be a religious thing either.

    • Jews don’t like southerners though. There was a pew study that showed that evangelicals had great affinity for jews but Jewish affinity for evangelicals was at the bottom of the barrel. Funny stuff.

      • High-IQ gentile whites from the Northeast ALSO dislike southerners.

      • The ruling class hates southerners. And the feeling is mutual. Many southerners deeply resented the role of northern whites in the civil rights movement, Jews included.

      • I know. I felt really bad when I read that. I thought about writing a letter to the Southern Baptist Convention, but figured they’d probably just try to convert me.

  25. “Who would so something like that? The type of white trash who hang out at the Stormfront website. They hate Jews over there. They hate Jews more than they hate blacks.”

    I agree that this is possible. But it’s also possible that it’s some attention seeking prankster that doesn’t harbor any serious racist animosity of the Stormfront intensity. No doubt anti-Semitism and racism are real issues, but sometimes it’s not hard to imagine how scandalous it would be to loudly interject some completely inappropriate remarks. We’ve just defanged every other kind of profanity and obscenity while at the same time endowed the N-Word with magical mystical job-ending and socially ostracizing powers. For people who want attention by stirring things up, is there a better way to do it without causing serious physical harm to peoples’ bodies and health? This case is proof. Some idiot smeared some crap on a bathroom wall and for weeks the college where it happened is roiled in strife and we are reading and talking about it across the country and likely abroad as well.

    I wish there were some scientific investigation of racist vandalism to determine the relative proportions of 1. Intentional menacing threat 2. Juvenile attention-seeking mischief 3. False-flag attention and sympathy seeking fraud. When I was in high school in NJ, some of the kids would say some callous things to and about Jews. Even though I might have been Jewish myself, I never really took it seriously. As far as the malicious bullying and mobbing went at that monstrous age, it was really nothing. As I recall, the little jerks would do or say anything if they thought it would get under their target’s skin. Kids can be such beasts. The bullies probably even had Jewish friends, but if calling a particular target of their bullying some anti-Jewish slur hurt the target’s feelings that’s all that mattered. Racist and anti-Semitic? Perhaps. But I have not doubt that it was more personal bullying than any kind of deep-meaning Stormfront-style racism. To be sure some of the more sensitive kids took the unkind slurs more hardly. But I can’t forget how one Jewish girl got caught spray painting swastika graffiti on her own family’s garage door.

    What I find so disappointing about all the witch hunts about racism is that they are so negatively poled. The SJWs claim to “hate” the “Hate” as they prosecute their crusade against thoughtcrime and micro-aggressions. Instead of hating the hate, why can’t they just love and make their crusade about inclusion and humanity, including inviting all the people who might think differently or who might have once harbored some politically incorrect views or uttered some taboo words. If they really want to change people’s hearts and minds then it is essential for them to welcome and embrace exactly this audience. Unfortunately the effect of the SJWs inquisition tactics has been to make more enemies than allies. As many feel under siege and gagged by a climate of fear that stifles any genuine dialogue or inquiry, they are actually nurturing an emergent new epidemic of racism where there was none before.

    Unfortunately it’s patently transparent that the SJW crusade isn’t one about inclusion and unity but rather all about changing the rules so they are at the top of the status competition wielding power. Equality is the last thing they want. But can they be blamed? If the former slaves triumph in their revolution, why should they stop after they’ve shed their chains just to be equal to their former masters when they can just push on to become masters themselves.

    We might agree that Bush’s war on terror and adventuring in the Middle East and the Levant created more terrorists than it killed. Perhaps it’s a lesson for the SJWs to consider as they prosecute their scorched earth inquisition against hate-thought, thought-crime and micro-aggression.

    for you US Americans here the master slave metaphor is not intended to exclusively refer to the US history of slavery and anti-black racism but referring more generally to any time a subjugated population successfully rises up against their former masters.

  26. “High-IQ gentile whites from the Northeast ALSO dislike southerners.”

    Southerners are well aware of the prejudice against them. Whether it stems from the same motivations is another matter. Regardless, one doesn’t excuse the other. “High-IQ gentile whites from the Northeast” should be ashamed of their bigotry. And you should, too, for using them to excuse your own.

    • This feeling goes back to the 1800s, when the Northeast was where educated people like scientists lived, and the south was a barbaric place where they had slaves working on plantations.

      By continuing the fly the confederate flag, southerners are not helping their cause.

      But how can you expect Lion to do so when the main point of antisemites is to excuse the actions of gentile liberals? Even when they do criticize gentile elites they always explain their policies as the result of Jewish influence sabotaging their normal racial awareness, making this blame just an indirect way of excusing themselves. This is less true of yourself since you usually blame gentiles as much as Jews, but still this is a bit presumptuous for demanding Lion take blame.

      Point to me a case where antisemites demanded gentiles take blame for the gentile elites – as willful, independent agents – of France, Britain, Sweden, America?

      There likely are proportionally more prole Jews who identify with aspects of Southern culture than there are Anglo Unitarians and Episcopalians from New England and the Tristate area.
