More White Supremacist, anti-Semitic Flyers Found in DC

WASHINGTON — Flyers espousing white supremacy and anti-Semitism were found in Northwest, D.C. Sunday — and it isn’t the first time.

The most recent hateful posts discovered in Glover Park were double-sided. The front-facing side read: “Defending your people is a social duty, not an anti-social crime.” The second side featured a rambling, anti-Jewish screed.

Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan R. McDuffie issued a statement via Twitter Monday condemning the flyers.

“I have spent my career fighting for civil rights and working to dismantle the legacy of discrimination that still exists in our society,” he wrote.

“Ward 5 will not be intimidated by cowards who distribute these disgusting flyers anonymously, and we will defend and embrace the beautiful diversity of our city and community.”

In May, racist, anti-Semitic flyers were found in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.

Those bore the web address of a white nationalist group, carried various racist messages aimed at African-Americans and immigrant groups and called for fascism to replace democracy in the United States.

Del Ray residents were repulsed.

“The fact that people come out and put these up in the middle of the night shows you that they know enough to be ashamed,” said Sue Mamber, an Alexandria resident. “Horrifying … to have such blatantly hateful messages.”
