Blue Lives Matter Bulletin Vandalized By Black Lives Matter Members

At Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, College Republicans went through a three-week bureaucratic process to receive permission to create a tribute in honor of National Police Week. Yet, it only took hours for their display to get vandalized. In addition, news of the display started to mount on social media.

Protests said the display was "racist." One post even wrote, “In case recent news about inclusivity and diversity had you fooled, Dartmouth is still racist. Located in the student center atrium.” The display was then destroyed as thugs tore it down and replaced it with Black Lives Matter flyers. The flyers read, “You cannot co-opt the movement against state violence to memorialize its perpetrators. #blacklivesmatter."

The Dartmouth Review reports, “In the intervening hours, dozens more flyers appeared, completely covering not only the College Republicans’ bulletin board, but nearby bulletin boards as well. The flyers also appeared at various locations around the campus, including the main entrance to Baker-Berry Library as well as the main entrance to Collis.” The activists then stood up by their new flyers, guarding the bulletin board the entire day. College Republicans worked to resolve the issue through the school's administration.

In addition, The Dartmouth Review further reported, “the same group of students printed and distributed pictures of the College Republicans with now-Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump. The Black Lives Matter protesters posted these pictures, with added commentary, around the campus. … Several students notified their deans about the invasion of privacy in posting the pictures."

The College Republicans spent hours back and forth trying to resolve the situation. The school eventually granted the Black Lives Matter members control over a bulletin board down the hall from the Blue Lives Matter display. The College Republicans wrote a letter to Dartmouth’s president and board of Trustees asking for equal treatment, which read in part:

“All we ask is that the protections and freedoms of self-expression afforded to other student organizations be extended to us. We do not see the Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter movements as mutually exclusive.

It is possible to recognize the service and contributions of law enforcement officers while simultaneously pushing for reform to correct the grave mistakes of the small minority of officers. On National Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, we just hoped to highlight the monumental sacrifices made by these officers to protect us every day.”

The Black Lives Matter group also did not have to go through the same three-week process to get their bulletin board approved, as they got it approved immediately.
