Concord, NC – A sign bearing an antisemitic message was removed from a pedestrian bridge in Concord after law enforcement was alerted to it Saturday.
Blake Holler told The Charlotte Observer he was driving down Highway 29 midday Saturday when he saw what “looked like a homemade banner” hanging from the pedestrian walkway over the road leading to the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The banner, Holler and police say, said “No Zionists in Local Government.”
“It’s disturbing. Obviously, it’s anti-Jewish,” Holler said. “We really don’t have any place for that in our society.”
Holler called 911 about the sign and was directed to the Concord Police Department, he said.
Concord Police spokeswoman Lindsay Mason confirmed officers took action about the sign Saturday.
“A Concord PD patrol sergeant notified the Speedway of the sign and the Speedway then took it down,” she said.
Holler said the bottom of the sign also said “North Carolina Patriot Front.”
