Antisemitic flyers appeared in driveways at homes in Clovis and Fresno this weekend.
Clovis police confirmed the flyers appeared in the neighborhood bounded by Peach, Ashlan, Gettysburg and Winery. Some of the flyers were also found nearby in Fresno.
Images from KMPH 26 show the flyers with topics such as “every single aspect of the Ukraine-Russian war is Jewish,” and “every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish.” They were placed in clear plastic bags weighed down with beans.
Although upsetting, the flyers were not a crime.
“It does not appear to target any single individual because homes on every street within the neighborhood received them. It’s unfortunate that our residents had to wake up to something like this, and we are looking into it, even though it is not a crime. Our officers were in the neighborhood speaking to residents about their concerns,” Clovis Police spokesman Ty Wood said.
Fresno Police had no information about complaints filed about the flyer.
ADL: Report Incidents Anyway
City, Jewish Leaders Condemn Flyers
Antisemitic attacks are on the rise and continue to expand throughout the country. Painfully, Fresno is not immune.
Hate has no place in our city. We stand in strong solidarity with our Jewish community against this disgusting antisemitic rhetoric.
