Neo-Nazi fliers targeting Jews dumped in Jacksonville, Florida, neighborhood
The fliers called to "Take America back from the Jews."

Fliers calling to “Take America back from the Jews” were dropped in a Jacksonville, Florida, neighborhood that is home to Jewish residents and several Jewish institutions.

The leaflets, which also claimed that the Jews are “plotting the minds of our government” and that it was up to the recipients to not “let them destroy what your European ancestors built,” were discovered Sunday morning in the driveway of the Jewish Community Alliance, two Jacksonville synagogues and the driveways of area homes, the Florida Times-Union reported.

They were signed by the Detroit-based neo-Nazi group National Socialist Movement. It is the second time in about a year that fliers claiming to come from the Neo-Nazi group have been distributed in the area.

UK: ‘Anti-Semitic, Racist’ Leaflets Distributed Outside Momentum Event

Via Huffington Post:

Leaflets distributed outside a meeting on religious hatred by the left-wing pressure group Momentum are “anti-Semitic and undeniably racist”, a Labour MP has said.

Wes Streeting, co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group of British Jews, has criticised the literature which called for the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM) to be disbanded.

The leaflets claimed that the JLM acted as “a representative of a foreign power, Israel” and called for it to be disaffiliated from the Labour party. They were issued by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network and handed out to attendees at an alternative Labour conference by Momentum, running in tandem to the main event.

The leaflets also asked “why is there so much emphasis on anti-Semitism, rather than other much more prevalent forms of racism?” and suggested the issue was being “exploited for factional goals”.

Part I

Gather round children, and hear the story of Kirk Elder Duncan Mitchell, king of the straight allies. 
Our church was having a big open house, since it’s a historical site. I was leading tours, and Duncan was overseeing a little bit of everything. There had recently been Drama between several churches in Glasgow that were LGBT-affirming (in line with Kirk views), and a homophobic minister who lead a non-LGBT-friendly congregation nearby (he and his minions have since flounced and left the Kirk. Hurrah!). 
I was wrapping up a tour when one of my friends pulled me aside and told me the following story:

The Night Vale mayoral race is heating up in preparation for the mayoral election this next June. The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home has taken to leaving leaflets inside the wiring and pipes of your appliances, to be found when the sparking and the shaking become so much that you must hire, or capture, a repair person.

The leaflets are tastefully designed, with an anatomically-detailed drawing of a sparrow’s heart, and the simple slogan: “You are fragile, and blind, and wanting, and stepping alone into the great darkness of the future.”

It also has her five-point policy platform, which is mostly interesting facts she has learned about bees.
