University vandalized with ‘f*ck Columbus,’ anarchist symbols
The Colorado State University, Fort Collins campus was vandalized Monday with phrases such as “f*ck Columbus” and “decolonize.”
According to Juan Caro, a student at the university and president of the Conservative Interest Group, the vandalism occurred on the school’s Eddy Hall and its Lory Student Center.

Images obtained by Campus Reform show that the vandals spray-painted statements such as “F*ck Columbus,” and “Decolonize,” along with the anarchism symbol.
“This is not the first time we’ve seen vandalism on campus. Just last year the CSU Student Democrats spray-painted on the plaza the day before the election. This kind of activism is not appropriate,” the Conservative Interest Group told Campus Reform in a statement.

“We’ve seen violence, we’ve seen vandalism, and everything in between,” it added. “The anarchy logo has ironically become a staple of the Antifa movement and other communist sympathizing groups.”
Campus Reform attempted to contact the school by phone Monday, and is currently awaiting more information on the matter.
