Neo-Nazi Group Puts Racist Posters At Seattle Synagogues
The fliers are part of a recent uptick in hateful posters seen in Puget Sound cities this summer, according the ADL.

SEATTLE, WA — Racist fliers were found posted at three South Seattle synagogues over the weekend, and the incidents match a recent uptick in hate-leafleting across Puget Sound, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

At around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, a masked man was spotted putting up a flier at the Sephardic Bikur Holim synagogue along 52nd Avenue South, Seattle police said. The fliers are signed by the Daily Stormer Book Club, which is a group affiliated with neo-Nazi leader Andrew Anglin and the racist forum Daily Stormer.

The flier features a cartoon by Antonio F. Branco showing U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley — known as "The Squad" — biting Uncle Sam's hand. Above the image is the phrase "Send them back!" with "deport the commie brown infestation" at the bottom.

The flier echoes Donald Trump's July tweet telling members of The Squad to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

The South Seattle synagogues are just the latest religious sites to be targeted by hate local groups. Different fliers have been found recently at North Seattle synagogues, plus at Christian churches in Kirkland and Kenmore. There have been about a dozen recent leafleting incidents, according to Anti-Defamation League Pacific Northwest Regional Director Miri Cypers.

"We are deeply troubled by the recent string of anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant flyers being posted at synagogues and churches across the Seattle area. This past weekend, a white supremacist group targeted synagogues in the Seward Park community with racist, anti-immigrant propaganda as part of an ongoing coordinated effort," Cypers said in a statement. "In a recent trend that we have observed across the country, these cowardly acts are meant to spread hateful and racist propaganda — sowing seeds of hate against our most vulnerable."

The Daily Stormer Book Club has been active in the region before, Cypers said, but this weekend's incidents were the first in a long time. The hate groups Identity Europa and Patriot Front have been very active in recent years, putting up recruitment posters in Bellevue, South Lake Union, and Gig Harbor.

The incidents come just one week after a gunman, apparently motivated by hate for immigrants, killed 22 people at an El Paso Walmart — and coincide with a report in the Spokesman Review about how the neo-Nazi group The Base is planning to hold a "hate camp" in Eastern Washington.

Cypers said that hate groups have targeted synagogues before because of Jewish groups that support refugees and immigrants. The Pittsburgh synagogue shooter tweeted about the group Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) before killing eleven at the Tree of Life synagogue last October.

Seattle police have stepped up patrols near the Seattle synagogues. Police are also looking for anyone who may have witnessed someone putting up a flier. You can reach investigators by calling (206) 625-5011
Silly boys are looking for a prison cell. It's needlessly risky, you don't have to put flyers on a synagogue to get your message out.

Mount Olive police respond to 14 vandalism calls in three days
Albina Sportelli, Morristown Daily Record Published 3:16 p.m. ET Aug. 12, 2019 | Updated 5:14 p.m. ET Aug. 12, 2019

MOUNT OLIVE — Township police responded to 14 acts of vandalism in a three-day span that left vehicles, buildings and signs damaged and covered with spray paint, said Cpl. Marianne Wurtemberg.

The first call was received Friday at 10 p.m. and the most recent on Sunday at 2:20 p.m., Wurtemberg said. Even though a hot-pink swastika was spray-painted on a white vehicle, she said, detectives have not labeled the vandalism as a hate crime. Wurtemberg said the incidents are still under investigation and there are currently no suspects.

All 14 calls came from the Stedwick Village area, Wurtemberg said. In that area, she said, there are two apartment complexes and a town house complex.

The suspect or suspects used black, pink and blue spray paint to vandalize the vehicles and buildings.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 973-691-0850 and dial 0 for the detective on duty.
It appears more like negroid tagging than White-produced activism. All the same, this is NOT RECOMMENDED.

Second time in about a month. Why hasn't Governor Cuomo's Thought Police rounded up the activists and put the hammer to them yet?

Woman finds stickers with hate-filled messages in Troy
August 08, 2019 04:58 PM

A woman discovered some concerning messages in Troy. She found the hate-filled messages posted on poles and walls downtown.

This is the second time in a month that these messages have appeared.

Liz Schou was walking her dog when she found the stickers. She says she found many of the stickers on and around City Hall. She says many of the stickers included the Hundred-Hander’s name, a suspected white supremacy group.

The messages said that whites were being attacked and should strike back. They criticized celebrating gay-pride, immigration, and environmentalism.

When stickers were found last month, Governor Cuomo called on the State Police Hate Crime Task Force to investigate along with the Troy Police Department.

Officials at City Hall also requested that people report the stickers to them.

Schou found the concentration of stickers on and around Troy City Hall concerning. "I saw that when it happened last month that City Hall said to report them to City Hall. The fact that they were directly on and around City Hall seems like they were trying to make a point."

Troy Police are investigating the flyers.

Troy Mayor Patrick Madden released the following statement:

"It is disappointing to see the continued appearance of these hateful stickers which promote racism and discrimination. They do not represent the views of our residents or leadership of our city. Troy is proud of the diverse makeup of residents, businesses and families, and we stand strongly against hate in all its forms. We continue to encourage residents who see these postings on public property to report them to City Hall for identification and removal."
How 'hateful' is "THERE IS A WAR ON WHITES"??

Stickers Promoting White Supremacy Posted On Signs In South Jersey City
By Cleve Bryan
August 8, 2019 at 6:12 pm

BORDENTOWN, N.J. (CBS) — A disturbing discovery was made in Burlington County after white supremacy stickers were found on signs. Some have gone to the police over those stickers, which contain a website address that promotes white supremacy propaganda.

There’s disgust and outrage in Bordentown where provocative stickers guiding people to check out allegedly racist propaganda were fixed on poles and street signs earlier this week.

“I felt that it was propaganda to recruit people for their Nazi agenda,” said Jacqueline Laven, the owner of Broomstick Betty.

One sticker said “Feminism Is A Cancer” with a website printed below. The other says “Love Your Race.”

Laven cut the website part off that sticker and gave it to police, who say they are investigating.

Local Marine Scott Reichek has reported the stickers to police after taking a look at the website.

“If you look at the website itself, they try to brand themselves as patriots,” Reichek said. “Basically it’s here some things you agree with, come sit down with us and we’ll feed you some more Nazi kool-aid.”

The Anti-Defamation League considers the group white supremacists and the emergence of their stickers comes at a time when the country is grappling with how to deal with white supremacist ideology that allegedly inspired the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

New Jersey this week launched a new anti-bias task force that is focused on youth recruitment and hate.

“Well, the concern with this type of flyering and recruitment is that it might just be comments but we know that these comments and these beliefs can lead to conduct,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said.

Reichek, who served in the Iraq War, says propaganda like this has no place in the country he’s defended.

“I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I regard these people as domestic enemies of the Constitution of the United States,” he said.

Police say there have not been any racist incidents or crimes in recent memory but are investigating the propaganda. They have reported the propaganda to the Department of Homeland Security.
Local Marine Scott Reichek ought to remember that the "Constitution of the United States" that he defends has a Bill of Rights that includes a 1st amendment regarding free speech before he gets too excited over "Love Your Race" flyers and more importantly, the people he claims are his "enemies" may be his own people.

Stickers linking to white nationalist group appear in North Dallas

Updated Aug 12 2019 10:02PM CDT

Stickers have started showing up across the DFW metroplex that link to a website that watchdog groups say belongs to a white nationalist organization.

It appears the stickers were placed recently in parts of North Dallas. Social media posts say they were also placed in Fort Worth and Grand Prairie.

Media reports show it’s something that's been happening in other cities across the country this year. When people saw it happening in North Dallas, they took matters into their own hands.

The stickers contain a QR code which directs people to a website for the Patriot Front. Both the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center designate the Patriot Front as a hate group.

The ADL says it is a “white supremacist group whose members maintain that their ancestors conquered America and bequeathed it solely to them."

Both the ADL and the SPLC say the Patriot Front spun off from the group behind the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

The group has been active recently in North Texas. On its website, the Patriot Front says it was behind the protest of an anarchist book festival in Denton two weeks ago during which a group of people chanted "Reclaim America" outside a bar.

People noticed when photos posted overnight Sunday on a purported Twitter account for the Patriot Front said "activists" posted stickers in several North Texas cities.

One was found at the DART station off of Forest lane and another one at the corner of Forest and Central. Two people showed up there to take it down. One asked FOX 4 to not show their face for safety reasons.

“It's definitely scary for minorities, such as myself, that this is out there,” the person said.

So once they were done, they replaced it with a message of acceptance.

“We just decided to take them down and show that hate is not welcome in our community,” they said.

The SPLC says it's currently tracking 73 hate groups in Texas. 14 of those are statewide, and one of them being the Patriot Front.
A novel idea using a QR code. These may help stickers stay in place longer.

White Supremacist Propaganda Pops up in Tulsa
By Matt Trotter • Aug 12, 2019

White supremacist propaganda appeared in Tulsa on Monday, the anniversary of two hate crimes.

Drivers on Tisdale Parkway in the morning saw a banner telling them to "Reclaim Hope," but that message was not what it appeared to be. We The People Oklahoma’s Marq Lewis said it’s tied to the hate group Patriot Front and is part of such groups’ broader effort to normalize their views.

"So, they would use something that is catchy, such as 'Reclaim Hope.' It speaks of oppressed people, but then the group that’s behind it is very nefarious. They are a neo-Nazi group, and they’re not afraid of saying it," Lewis said.

People of color account for more than 80% of the area’s residents.

The banner was removed before 10 a.m.

Phantasmagoria Books and Records co-owner Shannon Iwanski arrived to stickers on the midtown shop window bearing Patriot Front's logo and saying things like 'Keep America American.'

Iwanski said it’s the second time since May that’s happened, but last time every store in the strip mall was hit, and he knows why they were targeted.

"We have a Red Scare Info Shop, which is books that are more left-leaning, more socialism, more social program–minded, and we also have books that cater to LGBTQ+ people. We have a drag queen story hour here," Iwanski said.

Iwanski said the best remedy to hate is to call it out.

"Any time you see it, any time you experience it, let people know that it’s happening. Do not be afraid to contact the police. Do not be afraid to tell people about it. And whenever the time comes, you need to vote for people who are going to put a stop to this," Iwanski said.

Khalid Jabara was murdered by his white neighbor in Tulsa on Aug. 12, 2016, and Heather Heyer was killed when a white supremacist drove into a crowd of anti-racist demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Aug. 12, 2017.

Propaganda linked to Patriot Front was also found along Cherry Street in 2017.
Look how Semitically Correct the "Red Scare Info Shop" is! They cater to cross-dressing pedophiles! In a healthy society, they'd be treated to one of Dr. Pierce's oaken table legs for daring to suggest it's ok to molest children...

I wonder if the cops are going to investigate the anti-White stickers they put up? Probably not.

Ten Reports of Klan Propaganda In and Near Madison
By Robert Chappell -
Aug 15, 2019

At least 10 households around Dane County have reported racist propaganda being left in their driveways this week, law enforcement sources have confirmed.

Madison Police Department spokesman Joel Despain said the seven flyers found on Madison’s East Side Monday are all the same recruiting flier for the “White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.” Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney confirmed three more reports of similar flyers: one found on County Road N between Cottage Grove and Stoughton, another in the Town of Blooming Grove and another in the Town of Albion.

“This doesn’t surprise me,” said Christian Foust, who found one of the fliers in his driveway, in a Facebook message to Madison365. “I’ve been surrounded by white supremacists in Wisconsin my whole life. They can just say it without whispering now.”

The fliers contain a litany of false crime statistics and rail against interracial marriage. They contain a North Carolina-based phone number for a “National Hotline.” A message left at that number was not immediately returned.

Mahoney said distributing flyers is not illegal in itself but this kind of propaganda “causes a disruption in public safety, so we have to look at the circumstances.”

Despain said Madison Police turned the fliers over to the state Department of Justice, who advised that they do not contain a “specific or implied threat,” and therefore are protected speech.

“Disgusting, distasteful, abhorrent speech,” Despain said. “I think we can all agree on that.”

Despain and Mahoney both said people who find racist propaganda fliers should inform authorities, even though the fliers themselves might not be illegal.

Despain said if fliers are left at the homes of African American, Jewish or other minority families, or if other behavior makes a family feel as if they’re being targeted, “That can change the equation.”

Mahoney said his office is keeping the fliers as evidence and will continue to investigate, because he fears fliers like these could be a first step toward something much worse.

“I personally am concerned about it because if somebody goes to the measure of acting out like this, it shows a clear pattern of hatred and prejudice,” Mahoney said. “It’s that kind of behavior that could rise to the level of what occurred in El Paso or Dayton, Ohio, or many other incidents across their country, all dependent upon the level of hatred that this individual possesses.”

Mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio left nearly 30 people dead earlier this month. The El Paso shooting appears to have been racially motivated and targeted Latino immigrants and citizens.

“Everybody (who finds KKK propaganda) should call us,” Mahoney said. “We’re going to collect it and we’re going to treat it as an incident that we’re going to follow up on. It makes our community less safe.”

Anyone else who’s found similar fliers may contact Madison police, Dane County Sheriff or their local police, especially if you feel specifically targeted. Those who find any racist propaganda may also email tips to news@madison365.org.
Facts are racist and must be called "racist propaganda!" If the truth is racist, then it must be ok to be racist.

White supremacist propaganda surges at University during 2018-2019 school year

By Eunice Alpasan, Staff writer
August 8, 2019

A recent Anti-Defamation League report found white supremacist propaganda on college campuses increased 57% across six Midwest states during the 2018-2019 school year.

The ADL reported 36 cases of white supremacist propaganda on campuses across Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin from Sept. 1, 2018 to May 31 of this year. Fifteen of these cases were reported on Illinois campuses.

Four instances of white supremacist propaganda such as posters and stickers were reported throughout Champaign and on the University campus in October, November and January, according to the ADL’s Hate, Extremism, Anti-Semitism, Terrorism Map.

Propaganda campaigns are an anonymous way for white supremacist groups to spread their messages across communities and recruit new members, according to the ADL report.

The white supremacist propaganda messages include, “To ourselves and our posterity,” “Keep America American,” “Not stolen conquered” and “European roots, American greatness.”

Dr. Lara Trubowitz, education director at the ADL Midwest, said the veiled and patriotic nature of these messages helps appeal to a larger audience who may not necessarily identify with more forthright white supremacist language and symbols.

“To mainstream or professionalize white supremacist movements, one of the things these organizations have started to do is to code and transform some of the messages, signs and symbols that they’ve traditionally used,” Trubowitz said.

The alt-right organizations Patriot Front and Identity Evropa were responsible for the reported cases of white supremacist propaganda found at the University. The ADL and the Southern Poverty Law Center both classify these organizations as hate groups.

Patriot Front broke off from another white supremacist hate group Vanguard America after the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017. Identity Evropa rebranded to the American Identity Movement in March after private chats among its members leaked.

Michael Johnson, sophomore in LAS, said he and his friend took down about 200 white supremacist stickers across campus in October.

The University’s Facilities and Services staff also removed about 60 stickers from campus signs and lampposts after administrators became aware of the incident, according to The News-Gazette.

“It has nothing to do with the content,” University spokesperson Robin Kaler told The News-Gazette at the time. “People have a First Amendment right. It doesn’t matter what it says; if it’s in a place where it doesn’t belong (it gets removed).”

Johnson also took down some stickers from a separate reported incident in January.

Some members of the Champaign-Urbana community became aware of the January incident after Patriot Front posted photos on Twitter of its fliers posted around town.

“These newer, tech-savvy groups attract young white men quite a bit more because they’re able to reach a wider audience,” Johnson said. “Some right-wing groups have rebranded themselves to be a higher class or an educated group rather than the street gang mentality of before.”

The mass shooting in El Paso on Friday, which left 22 people dead and more than two dozen wounded, is being investigated as a possible hate crime by Texas authorities after the gunman showed having white supremacist beliefs.

The gunman is believed to have published a “manifesto” online minutes before the shooting which included racist language aimed at immigrants and Latinos, according to authorities.

Nationwide, the ADL reported 313 documented cases of white supremacist propaganda on college campuses during the 2018-2019 school year — a 7% increase from the 292 cases reported from the previous year.

The data from the ADL report comes from a mix of self-reports from white supremacist organizations, news sources and various databases. The number of instances of white supremacist propaganda found in the report may be underreported, Trubowitz said.

University spokesperson Chris Harris told The Daily Illini in an emailed statement intolerance, racism and violence will never be condoned at the University:

“The First Amendment assures the right of free speech for all members of our community, but that right is not unlimited,” the statement said. “We can and we do condemn speech and action that are unprotected and in opposition to our values of fairness and equality. We adamantly reject the idea of racial supremacy and we take appropriate action when we learn of incidents that violate our policies here at Illinois.”

Trubowitz said she is concerned the coded nature of these white supremacist messages could potentially blindside some white students who may feel out of place on campus and want to identify with a community.

“These groups believe if they can go into an area and potentially attract what they consider more impressionable students, they’re going to lift up and energize the movement,” she said. “Campuses need to be able to train students to know what to look for, especially as the images, symbols (and) the iconography shifts.”

Trubowitz said another reason white supremacist groups target college campuses is because they are also an easy source of publicity since it sparks public outrage very quickly, which in turn means their fliers can more quickly get into the news.
