Leaders of a conservative student club at Arizona State University used anti-Semitic symbols, made racist and homophobic comments, and appeared to advocate for eugenics, according to a dossier compiled this winter by former club members leaked to Phoenix New Times.

Two of the group's leaders also appeared in photos apparently making light of the white nationalist vehicular murder in Charlottesville, Virginia.

College Republicans United (CRU) is a small offshoot of ASU's College Republicans chapter. The group formed in early 2018 by students who pushed for views outside traditional conservative beliefs. An umbrella organization for CRU called Republicans United Federation of Arizona oversees chapters at ASU and Northern Arizona University.
