St. Petersburg, FL – Police are investigating after antisemitic flyers were distributed in St. Petersburg.
The flyers were found Tuesday at homes near 5th Avenue North and 3rd Street North, and at 1031 7th St. N., Yolanda Fernandez, community awareness division manager for the St. Petersburg Police Department, told Patch.
The flyers began by condemning progressives for promoting communism and conservatives for focusing on money. However, the brunt of the note’s vitriol was aimed at Jewish people and their allies. The hate mail featured Nazi symbols while promoting replacement theory, the white nationalist ideology that has inspired several mass shootings.
