Antisemitic propaganda in the form of flyers made to resemble newspaper clippings was discovered by a local resident walking in the area of 700 S. Madison during the early hours Friday.
Numerous driveways and yards were littered with antisemitic material inside plastic sandwich bags weighed down with rocks. These plastic bags were reportedly found on every property from the 500 block to the 1000 block of South Madison Ave.
January 27 was International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
“This is one of the most disturbing things that happened in all the years. I’ve lived here in Pasadena,” one area resident told Pasadena Now.
Over 50 such bags were recovered by Pasadena Police personnel, authorities said. The flyers were orchestrated by the white supremacist group ‘Goyim Defense League’ or GDL, led by Jon Minadeo II.
Neighboring streets were not affected and Pasadena Police do not have any suspect information as of this writing.
City Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian said similar incidents have occurred previously.
“This is recurring and it’s unfortunate,” Derderian said. “Propaganda like this is not tolerated and this group deserves no attention as they hide behind literature and false accusations.”
