Anti-Semitic fliers distributed in two Florida cities with large Jewish populations have also been found in several other states.

The fliers name senior health officials in the United States that are Jewish and falsely claim that Jews are responsible for the U.S. government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, stating: “Every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish.”

They were distributed to homes in Miami Beach and Surfside, Fla., over the weekend. Police said they were also found in the San Francisco neighborhood of Pacific Heights on Sunday, as well as in the city of Chico in Northern California.

The Anti-Defamation League said the fliers were also seen in Texas, Colorado, Maryland and Wisconsin.

The ADL additionally shared information about those responsible, saying they are “a loose network of individuals that engages in anti-Semitic stunts to harass Jews,” and that “individuals associated with this network include a range of anti-Semites and white supremacists who are motivated and united by their hatred of Jews.”

Anyone who has seen the fliers is encouraged to report them to the ADL.

“We want to make sure that law-enforcement investigates and get to the bottom of exactly what is going on,” said Teresa Drenick, deputy director of the ADL’s Central Pacific Region.
