Another Baltimore County neighborhood was targeted with antisemitic posters.
This is now the third Baltimore County neighborhood in a little more than a week that has been targeted by antisemitic posters.
Residents along the Maryland-Pennsylvania line woke up to two antisemitic posters that were placed in plastic bags and weighed down with pellets.
Grace Froelich said one of those posters landed in her driveway Wednesday morning.
“To find this in your driveway, it’s just an awful feeling,” Froelich said.
A second poster was described by one of the residents.
“It was a picture of all the executives from Disneyland and they all had the Star of David printed on their forehead,” Staelens said.
The advocacy organization fighting antisemitism – StopAntisemitism – has attributed the antisemitic flyers to the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The league travels the country distributing these hateful flyers targeted Jewish communities. Earlier this week, GDL members were distributing similar flyers in neighboring towns.
Police said three communities in Baltimore County reported finding antisemitic flyers in about a week.
“It’s been weekend after weekend, week after week, in parts of Baltimore County,” said Howard Libit, from the Baltimore Jewish Council.
Libit said they have noticed a spike in reports since January. He says he’s working with police to try to track down the group responsible.
“It’s another one of the semi-anonymous groups that want to intimate, harass and spread hate,” Libit said.
Residents say they want whoever is doing this turn themselves in.
“It’s very disturbing,” Staelens said. “I mean, we’re a quiet community here, and to have something like that go on is very unusual.”
Baltimore County Police said in a statement that they are investigating these incidents.
