Another round of antisemitic flyers were stuck to dozens of windshields on a drizzly Friday afternoon, the first reported batch since a driveway campaign in early July.
The latest edition mostly targets “those responsible for the covid-19 vaccination,” naming the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as leaders and experts from Moderna, Pfizer and Blackrock.
The flyers hit as Floyd County recorded its 466th covid fatality since March 2020. The state’s death toll is at 35,732 people.
The flyers were found midafternoon along part of Broad Street and off Sixth Avenue, including the parking lot of the Rome News-Tribune.
Debbie Burnett, Rome’s assistant chief of police, says reports came in all around the same time Friday afternoon. An officer has been sent to find those leaving the flyers to educate them about city ordinances prohibiting what they’re doing.
Two people described as White males were spotted close to downtown, one with a handful of flyers and another with a camera.
