White Nationalists On WSU Campus?

Since its creation last fall, a conservative student group at Washington State University has set up a chain-link fence on campus to protest illegal immigration, launched a controversial newspaper, and rallied in favor of "Straight Pride." Those public events have brought attention to the local chapter and its parent organization, Youth for Western Civilization. The goal of the seven-member chapter is to revive Western civilization and make it the dominant culture in the U.S., according to Phil Tignino, the student coordinator for the WSU chapter. "I don't think the U.S. should be known as the country that is home to every culture, language and belief system in the world," said Tignino, a 22-year-old political science major from Los Angeles/Andrea Castillo, WSU Murrow News Service.

Question: The Southern Poverty Law Center says Youth for Western Civilization is promoting white nationalism at Washington State. Do you agree? Or do you consider this group relatively harmless?
