Students Petition Cal State Stanislaus To Take Stronger Stand Against White Nationalist

TURLOCK (CBS13) – An online petition is growing, calling on California State University Stanislaus to take a stronger stand against a white nationalist on campus.

The petition has 150 supporters and was created after Stan State student Nathan Damigo, a known alt-right, pro-white supporter, participated in a violent demonstration in Berkeley. Damigo was seen on video punching a woman in the face.

Damigo found himself in hot water in October when he launched a campaign to recruit members to his white-only group, Identity Europe. He described it as “a message of empowerment to people of European heritage.”

Members of the group behind the petition say they don’t feel safe with Damigo’s presence on campus. They say he has posted flyers and has visited other campuses to give students the alt-right’s alternative view.

A spokeswoman for the school says the university provides a safe and secure learning and working environment and its university police monitors for activities involving any group that may target the community.

“Being of a different ethnicity, it’s kind of scary because you wonder what could he be talking about with people who are not my ethnicity…what could they be planning? Could something — like with me walking to class — happen? I have no idea,” said student Shevani Sharma.

At noon on Wednesday, hundreds of students are expected to participate in a protest against hate speech.

    Shame on you CBS for telling half of the story. The photo show him defending himself from this demented left-wing zealot. She posted on her Facebook page she was going to the protest and take 100 scalps. From the video clip of the events he didn’t hit her until after she had him by the throat. The violent action by this bunch of uninformed morons has no place in this country! You can voice your opinion, but you can’t touch someone with the intent of doing them harm because you don’t like what they’re saying! By reporting only half facts of story make CBS a
    co-conspirator in in-sighting violence at these protest!
