Hundreds of Antisemitic Flyers Found in Several Cities Across US
Hundreds of antisemitic flyers falsely placing blame on Jewish people for the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic were anonymously delivered to South Florida homes over the weekend, according to authorities.
The flyers claimed that Jewish people were responsible for the COVID-19 public health response, according to a copy of the flyer obtained by CNN. The flyers reportedly showed the Star of David, hate speech and a list of government health officials, pharmaceutical industry leaders and investment executives incorrectly labeled as Jewish.
“Miami Beach PD has been made aware of an antisemitic flyer distributed overnight in residential neighborhoods. Detectives are actively investigating to determine their origin,” Miami Beach Police (MBPD) tweeted Jan. 23. “We have increased patrols in our neighborhoods and also at our religious institutions.”
MBPD said it is working with local, state and federal partners to investigate the incident.
“There is no place for hate in our community and it will not be tolerated,” the department said.
Similar flyers were distributed in Alabama, Colorado, Wisconsin, Texas, California, Nevada and Maryland, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). (DC / VFI News)
