(FeaturedNews.com) – There have been many rumors floating about during the COVID-19 pandemic with varying degrees of truth to them. However, a new theory popping up in some states seems rooted in antisemitism rather than reality.
Fliers showing up in California, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Texas, and Wisconsin proclaim Jewish people are responsible for the “Covid agenda” [sic]. The first of these notices appeared in Florida on January 24. People found them wrapped in plastic and held down with rocks.
Local authorities in the cities where these fliers showed up have spoken out against them. Police Chief Melanie Griswold from Melbourne Beach, Florida, called them “disturbing.” San Francisco Mayor London Breed called them “scare tactics” in a tweet where she said her city will not tolerate such actions and supports its sizable Jewish population.
The Anti-Defamation League boiled them down to “an attempt to intimidate and harass Jewish communities” and urged everyone to stand up against antisemitism. The group also thanked local leaders and law enforcement for their support and condemnation of these actions.
Witnesses in some areas say they saw people leaving the notices, but there have been no reports of any arrests or identification of those involved.
