The antisemitic leaflets were found tossed in the yards and driveways of several neighbors in the Bridge Mill subdivision of a Cherokee County neighborhood.
“I was furious,” neighbor Hilary Sosebee told Channel 2′s Veronica Griffin. “Obviously there’s still hate out there.”
Sosebee and other neighbors said they woke up Sunday morning to find the flyers with hate-filled messages towards Jewish people.She told Griffin that there are over 3,000 homes in a normally quiet neighborhood.
“There was a number of homes in the neighborhood that got them. It wasn’t targeted. It seemed like they went up and down the street, and most homes had received them,” Sosebee said.
NGO StopAntisemitism has attributed the antisemitic flyers to the white supremacist group, the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The GDL is led by Jon Minadeo II. Minadeo was recently cited in Florida for handing out similar antisemitic leaflets.
In recent months hateful flyers were left at homes in neighborhoods in Dunwoody and Sandy Springs.
Sosebee told Griffin that she reached out to her rabbi for guidance on how to deal with the flyers. “The answer was not to just throw it away, let people know,” she said.
Cherokee County police said they are aware of the flyers and are looking into it.
