White Power Signs on Montana Campuses
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Signs bearing the name of a white supremacist group have been left on two college campuses and elsewhere in Montana's largest city.
The Billings Gazette reported Monday some signs had a drawing of Uncle Sam with the words "Thank you, veterans!" and the group's name, Identity Evropa, in smaller type. The group's triangular logo appears on Uncle Sam's lapel.
The signs appeared at Montana State University Billings and Rocky Mountain College, as well as at some city intersections.
One was placed beside a display honoring veterans set up by the Native American Achievement Center at Montana State Billings. Reno Charette, director of the center, said she hadn't heard of the group but alerted campus police when she learned what it advocated.
It wasn't clear who placed the signs. Both colleges condemned them.
