A white nationalist group has been spreading their message via posters in Kansas City, Missouri and people aren't too happy about it.

According to their Facebook page, Identity Evropa is an American based identitarian organization dedicated to educating the people of European heritage about the importance of a Eurocentric identity.

The group was started by Nathan Damigo, a combat veteran of the Iraq war and the creator and host of the podcast, On The Front.

Groups like Identity Evropa support white supremacist or white separatist ideologies, often focusing on the alleged inferiority of nonwhites, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center

After the group tweeted some photos of their posters in Kansas City on July 4, 41 Action News went to go find some of them.

We soon realized most of the posters had already been taken down. The posters went up Fourth of July weekend in major cities across the country.

Some of the words on the posters read "our future belongs to us" and "our destiny is ours."

In our photos, you can see some of the scenes where the posters once were. All that’s left is an outline where the glue once held the poster.

One Twitter user posted a picture of the sign that used to be near Savoy Grill in Kansas City.  It is crumbled and ripped in the photo.

Identity Evropa has taken more heat on Twitter from others too. Many people are saying they do not support the group’s message and want the posters taken down.

But others say they support what the organization is trying to do.
