Authorities in Pennsylvania are investigating after anti-Semitic and racist pamphlets were reportedly found around Pittsburgh neighborhoods.
Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s CEO, Jeff Finklestein, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he reviewed the fliers on Facebook and that they contained “recruitment information for the Ku Klux Klan.” Though it’s unclear where exactly the fliers were found, local police confirmed they’re investigating the incident.
KDKA also reported that the pamphlets contained Ku Klux Klan logos in addition to anti-Semitic messages. Someone who spoke with the station under the condition of anonymity said they were walking near the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh on Saturday evening when they discovered three plastic bags containing bird seed and pieces of paper.
“Such hate-filled material will not be tolerated in Pittsburgh — not by residents, City officials nor Law Enforcement,” the Department of Public Safety said in a statement released Sunday. “Pittsburgh is and will remain Stronger than Hate.”
