Promotion of Antisemitic Conspiracy Film Sparks Outrage in Colorado Town

People in several Arapahoe County neighborhoods discovered plastic bags in their driveways Saturday weighted down with rocks and containing flyers for a white supremacist antisemitic film billed as a documentary.

Seven people reported the flyers to the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, but deputies concluded no crime was committed because the distribution of the flyers is protected by the First Amendment.

The sandwich bags were apparently tossed from a passing vehicle in multiple neighborhoods.

Attorney Jeff Wolf said his wife found a flyer in the driveway at their home. He said that although he understands legally why it’s not considered a hate crime, the aim of those who spread the flyers is “to sow the seeds of antisemitic hate.”

“It’s also designed to harass anyone who is Jewish in our communities against living there because this is the hate they’re going to see there,” Wolf said.

Wolf said he has experienced antisemitism throughout his life, from someone burning a swastika into his lawn when he was a kid to someone spray-painting the symbol on his parents’ home. He said he sees the flyers in the same vein and that he refuses to cower to the attacks.

“It’s supposed to design fear,” he said. “But if you want to design fear in the Jewish community that I’m a part of, maybe don’t do it in the middle of the night like a coward.”
