Racist Towson University Student Starts ‘White Student Union’

Towson University senior Matthew Heimbach wants to stop what he calls a “black crime wave” at Maryland's Towson University. So, he started the public university's “white student union,” in which is lists himself as the group's “Founder and Commander.” Appropriately enough, the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled Heimbach's “white student union” a “hate group.”

Here's what Heimbach told Towson's Towerlight Student newspaper:

“One thing we’re doing at night is to have a male member accompany female members across campus or to night classes,” Heimbach said. “Not because we’re terrified, but in college everyone is focused on themselves. We just want to make campus a better place. If we see a white person commit a crime against a person who is not white, we’re going to assist the person who was attacked every time.”


In a WSU blog post a few weeks ago, Heimbach described the school's “black crime wave.”

The frequent robberies, sexual assaults, and acts of vandalism at Towson University are not often reported in the local media. For those who are not Towson students it seems hard to fathom that every single day black predators prey upon the majority white Towson University student body. White Southern men have long been called to defend their communities when law enforcement and the State seem unwilling to protect our people.


Here's how the White Student Union's night patrols work, in his own words via the Huffington Post:

“We plan to do everything within the limits of the law. Several of our members are veterans who are former military police and at least one of them will be with every patrol. Our goal is to identify, notify, and help. We will identify criminals who are committing crimes, notify the local authorities, and help the victim until first responders arrive.”


Understandably, the University is pissed. Via the Balitmore Sun:

“The safety of our community is of paramount importance,” a Towson spokeswoman said in a statement. “As one of the safest campuses in the University System of Maryland, we are confident in the work of the Towson University Police force. We maintain our vigilance to keep Towson safe and have not sanctioned patrols by this or any other student group.”


This isn't Heimbach's first go-around at a racist campus crusade, either:

In the fall semester, Heimbach rented the Chesapeake rooms so a guest speaker, self-described “racial realist” Jared Taylor, could conduct a lecture on how diversity is not a strength.


The university nails it in a statement to the Balitmore Sun:

“The exchange of opinions and debate is a core principle of higher education and is supported by Towson's commitment to the First Amendment,” Towson officials said in a statement. “Unfortunately, this freedom on occasion allows for ideas that are offensive and hurtful to many and runs against the grain of the values of Towson University.”


Heimbach is free to say what he wants under the First Amendment, just as others are free to react with disgust at how he choses to use such a sacred constitutional right. That said, Heimbach sounds like a completely insensitive, fringe radical based at least on his choice of language toward African-Americans. It makes sense that his club has been identified as a hate group because his blatant racial finger-pointing is baseless and absurd.

His “good intentions” of starting a night patrol to “stop the black crimewave” sounds like a pathetic masquerade to justify some honky redneck racist attitudes that unfortunately are still quite prevalent in parts of this country. In reality, though, those “night patrols” seems more like a ploy to intimidate campus minorities. As Raw Story notes, “night time patrols” are a strategy “employed by members of the Greek Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, an organization Heimbach has cited as a role model.” It's hard to believe anyone with sound mind is going to employ the WSU's campus escort “services.”

Hate isn't cool at all, Bro.
