“This is the kind of chicanery that spoiled rotten 12-year-old boys do when they don’t have a decent babysitter.”
Virginia police are investigating a number of racist and anti-Semitic flyers that were plastered in “a variety of areas” around Alexandria, a spokesperson told BuzzFeed News on Saturday, including a “wanted poster” for the woman who made headlines last weekend for verbally confronting white nationalist Richard Spencer at his gym.
Eric Wagner, who lives in Alexandria's Del Ray neighborhood, told BuzzFeed News that he saw the posters at 7 a.m. Saturday morning when he was walking his dog around the neighborhood.
One poster read: “You're losing your country, white man!” and another, “Stop the blacks.”
“I took down well over 50,” said Wagner, who received help from other neighbors. “They were glued to telephone poles and trees and stuffed under windshield wipers.”
Wagner said his neighbors have been disturbed by the incident.
“They were really upset and disturbed that this is happening here,” he said. “This is not us. We continue to be the community that we know we are.”
A professor from Georgetown University, C. Christine Fair, was the target of one of the posters. Fair made headlines last weekend for confronting alt-right leader Richard Spencer at his gym, which lead to him losing his membership there.
