College Dems leader resigns after declaring hatred of white men
- The College Democrats of Wisconsin announced that its vice chair had resigned Tuesday after posting inflammatory tweets about "white men" and pro-lifers.
- University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student Sarah Semrad attracted attention when she posted a tweet saying, "I f***ing hate white men," and had previously boasted of tearing down fliers advertising pregnancy resource centers.
The College Democrats of Wisconsin announced that its vice chair who lashed out against “white men” in a tweet last week has stepped down from her role in the organization.
According to the group, Sarah Semrad, a junior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse who allegedly tweeted that “I f***ing hate white men,” resigned her post on the executive board of the political organization as of Tuesday morning.
“She is no longer involved in the organization,” a College Democrats of Wisconsin spokesperson told Campus Reform. “She resigned, and as of this morning, is no longer a member of our executive board.”
Images of Semrad’s now-defunct Twitter account also appear to show the former vice chair making other controversial remarks, such as expressing her disdain for a pro-life group on campus.
“My new bit is tearing down all the pro life Christian pregnancy resource center fliers that they put up around campus to try & trick people,” she allegedly tweeted last month.
Semrad has also been officially removed from the College Democrats of Wisconsin website, where she was previously listed as Vice Chair.
“I believe everyone, regardless of race, age, religion, or gender deserves the equal opportunity to [achieve] anything they put their mind to,” Semrad’s bio stated before it was removed.
According to The Journal Times, Semrad’s responsibilities at the organization included coordinating with other regional directors of College Democrat chapters and organizing the annual state convention.
