Antisemitic fliers were hung and then taken down in several locations across Los Angeles, according to a report first published by The Algemeiner.
The fliers were placed near three schools and a shopping mall.
“What is the difference between Crackheads and Jews?” read one flier. Another flier said, “The murder of innocent women and children by a Rothschild led Jewish Zionist armed militia to forcibly confiscate the Land of Palestine now known as Israel.”
The Algemeiner reached out to the Los Angeles Police Department but it did not respond for comment.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the LA-based Simon Wiesenthal Center told the online news site that the language used on the fliers “indicate someone who has been absorbing new/old anti-Semitic tropes on social media.”Earlier this month, swastikas and other symbols were drawn in blood near the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.
"Acts of hate and antisemitism are deeply painful and have no place in the city of Los Angeles," City Councilman David Ryu said in a statement at that time. "With hate incidents on the rise locally and nationally, we must stand up for our diverse communities and their safety. I am in contact with LAPD while this remains under investigation, and urge anyone with information to contact the LAPD Wilshire Division."
