Chatham, New York – The chairman of the Columbia County Democrats is blasting an effort by unknown individuals who have been throwing sandwich bags filled with Nazi propaganda onto front lawns.
“There is no place for hate in our community,” said Sam Hodge, chairman of the Columbia County Democrats. “The white supremacists peddling this disgusting and vile hate speech do not represent our community. Anonymously throwing sandwich bags with hateful propaganda is cowardly. We won’t be intimidated. We must do everything we can to call out and stand up against this despicable effort to promote hate and peddle lies.”
The bags were found on Sunday, October 2 in Chatham. They were filled with a palm-sized poster and a couple dozen dried beans. The beans served to give weight to the bag so that it could be thrown onto a front yard from a passing car.
