In a carnivalesque spectacle that stumbled somewhere between public relations event and shouting match, leaders of College Republicans United (CRU) apologized for racist and anti-semitic Facebook chats revealed by Phoenix New Times.

A few dozen students protesters showed up for the event outside Old Main on Arizona State University's Tempe campus. Chants calling for the group to disband and taunts of "Nazi" made it clear that protesters doubted the sincerity of the conservative group's apology.

Protesters also shouted at the Reverend Jarrett Maupin, the polarizing activist whose call for a protest on Wednesday contributed to CRU organizing its public address. Maupin stood between CRU members and their detractors throughout the event, giving off the appearance that he was running interference for the group.
