A Ku Klux Klan (KKK) group has distributed antisemitic, homophobic flyers in Virginia last week.
The flyers that were handed out by the Loyal White Knights (LWK), one of the groups that make up the KKK, took aim at the school board in Fairfax, Virginia, branding it as “Jew-inspired, communist, queer-loving sex fiends violating the words of the Holy Bible.”
The flyers bore the hate group’s insignia, along with the words “Yahweh is Watching!”
Guila Franklin Siegel, the Associate Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington, acknowledged the “particular insidiousness of targeting a district that is represented by a Jewish school board member who has been subjected to antisemitic rhetoric on previous occasions.”
Ms Siegel added: “Our leaders should not have to endure threats of this kind and such virulent hate has no place in our community.”
According to the ADL, the LWK “follow a version of traditional Klan ideology infused with neo-Nazi beliefs,” and have organised white supremacist rallies.
