People in at least eight states found anti-Semitic fliers claiming Jews are responsible for COVID-19 on the yards over the weekend, according to the Secure Community Network (SCN).

The leaflets were part of a “coordinated flier drop,” by the anti-Semitic Goyim Defense League, according to SCN, and were found in Alabama, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, North Carolina, Texas and Vermont. The leaflet, one of which was titled “Every Single Aspect of the Covid Agenda Is Jewish,” included a QR code that linked to an anti-Semitic website run by the Goyim Defense League.

“This is another reminder that the Jewish community is a target in the United States,” said Michael Masters, CEO of SCN. “There continue to be groups willing to do anything they can to attack Jewish people, including blaming them for a pandemic that has affected so many lives across the globe. We must continue to fight anti-Semitism and ensure the Jewish community can flourish.”

This is not the first time the Goyim Defense League has left fliers in people’s yards, but it may be the first time they have left them in so many locales at once. Just before Hanukkah, the group left fliers at homes in Beverly Hills, Calif., and earlier this fall the group hung a banner from an overpass in Austin, Texas, saying “Vax the Jews.”
