This Thanksgiving, we unapologetically celebrate the European nuclear family, a
social mode of organization that originated in Northwest Europe and has formed the
basis for civilization in Europe and the United States. The nuclear family is the
bedrock of our culture and civilization. So this Thanksgiving lets say cheers to all the
happy white families out there! Happy Thanksgiving!

We support freedom of speech here at the Mizzou WSU, so we only delete
spam, and not other comments, even hateful ones. But I’d like to take a
moment to talk about the double standard of “hate speech”. We at the
Mizzou WSU oppose genuinely hateful speech, although we think people
have the right to express themselves that way. But what the Left defines as
“hate speech” is not the same as genuinely hateful speech. To the left,
saying anything pro-white is ‘hate speech’, even if we’re not denigrating or
insulting any other group. But genuinely hateful speech directed toward
groups the left dislikes, like whites or veterans, is not considered ‘hate
speech’.
For example, look at this left-wing commenter on this page, Michael Hagge.
I don’t know if he’s a student or employee here at Mizzou, but his general
attitude is similar to many on the left: a pro-white facebook page that never

denigrated any other group is offensive, but vile personal insults are fine, as
long as they’re directed at a white, male, veteran.

There’s been a lot of talk recently about how white people are evil, and all
the bad things whites have done. I think we should take a moment to
recognize all the good things whites have brought the world. For example,
did you know that the inventions of one European-American, Norman
Borlaug, saved the lives of an estimated 1 billion people around the world?
During the mid 20th century, due to growing populations and declining crop
yields, many experts predicted mass starvat… See More

Unfortunately, some prejudiced individuals have been spreading malicious
rumors about the Mizzou White Student Union and other white student
unions across the country. These bigots have slandered our organization
and others like us as “fraudulent”, suggesting that we are actually
unaffiliated with our universities. The basis for these claims, laughably, are
anonymous and unsourced posts on websites like 4-Chan. We can only
speak for ourselves, but the Mizzou White Student Union is a real group of
about 10-15 core members and 20-25 affiliates who attend the University of
Missouri. We are currently in the process of applying for recognition from
the university and expect to have our first major public appearance after
Thanksgiving break. Have a good night, and thank you so much for all of
the support.

In light of recent controversy over white student unions and Black Lives
Matter protests across the country, it’s worth setting out what we hope to
accomplish with our white student union at Mizzou.
It’s become increasingly clear that campus politics at the University of
Missouri is becoming divided along identity lines. As People of color and
https://www.facebook.com/MizzouWhiteStudentUnion/timeline

African Americans form organizations to advocate for their well-being and
safety, white students must do so as well.
At the Mizzou White Student Union, we aim to create a safe space for
students of Western ancestry (and allies) to discuss our shared European
heritage and work to promote positive portrayals of Westerners on campus.
We unapologetically provide a safe space for white bodies to discuss
issues facing our shared community and situations we’ve encountered in
our unique lived experiences.
Furthermore, we unequivocally condemn racism and prejudice. The goal of
our union is to celebrate and take pride in the accomplishments of our race,
not to tear down or attack any other group.
The Mizzou White Student Union considers recent Black Lives Matters
protests our allies and we wish to work together to promote a positive,
peaceful, and Western future for the University of Missouri.

The Mizzou White Student Union is the only White Student organization in
Mizzou. We take pride in working to develop a lasting appreciation of social,
moral, intellectual, and most of all, cultural values that will uplift the White
student in the pursuit of academia, and heighten the cultural consciousness
of all students in all aspects of student life. We are the leading voice on
campus working to eradicate ignorance and promote positive change
through education, motivation and advocacy for White students at Mizzou.

you people just don’t get it. Your student union is already

lacks diversity and inclusion of black students. They didn’t create it because
they are “anti-white” smh idiots!

White Student Union Facebook pages spread nationwide
USA TODAY NETWORK Morgan Baskin, USA TODAY College
7:54 a.m. ET Nov. 25, 2015
An anonymous Facebook page created early in the week at the University of Illinois may have been among the
first (https://www.facebook.com/Illinois­White­Student­Union­1702800449939426/) White Student Union pages
to pop up, but it’s hardly been the last. (http://college.usatoday.com/2015/11/25/white­student­union­facebook­
pages­believed­to­be­fake­spread­nationwide/)
Appearing at Illinois after black students held a rally Wednesday, the page reportedly characterized the Black
Lives Matter movement as an act of “terrorism” and called for themonitoring
(Photo: Facebook)
(https://illinois.edu/blog/view/6231/280978) of African­American students who attended the protest, leaving
many feeling unsafe at the Urbana­Champaign campus.
Now, as unconfirmed reports – including an anonymous report (https://medium.com/@b4e2015/racists­probably­started­a­white­student­union­at­your­
school­they­re­all­fake­5d1983a0b229#.ce9r3vg04) from Medium — blame the postings on either a white supremacist group or 4Chan users, more
than 30 (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UPktNFT3VSXxs8­cHrxTs48baRQOv3rzeo3FRZf­Ats/edit#gid=0&vpid=A2) white student union
Facebook pages, claiming to represent real college organizations, have been posted. Some schools are quickly distancing themselves — and petitioning
Facebook to take them down.
Schools affected include George Washington University, Pennsylvania State University, Stanford University, Swarthmore College, the University of
Mississippi, Ohio State University, New York University and the University of Texas – Austin.
Officials at George Washington University, where a white student union page was created on Sunday, condemned
(https://www.facebook.com/georgewashingtonuniversity/posts/10153188295170913) the page in a Facebook post published Monday afternoon and
encouraged universities to report their pages to the social media giant.
“Other universities around the country have seen similar pages being created in the last week in what appears to be an orchestrated effort. Many have
already spoken out against the vitriol and we are asking that the other universities (tagged below) join us in asking Facebook to delete these pages,
which are being used for harassment and intimidation,” the post reads.
NYU Director of Public Affairs Matt Nagel told the New York Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/new­york/manhattan/nyu­white­student­union­
