Around 30 fliers allegedly distributed by the KKK were discovered in Fairfax Station, Virginia Wednesday targeting Fairfax County school board members, according to police.
A photo of the flyer was posted by a Fairfax Country school board member Wednesday, which states "Fairfax County, VA- school board members- Jew-inspired, communist, queer-loving sex fiends- violating the words of the Holy Bible (KJV)- Yahweh is Watching! Loyal White Knights… Pray for White Americans."
The board member, Karl Frisch, wrote that, "If the Klan is calling our School Board a bunch of 'Jew-Inspired, Communist, Queer-Loving Sex Fiends,' we must be doing something right. This 'queer-loving,' queer School Board member isn’t backing down."
The fliers were met with wide outrage from school board members and local democrats.
State Delegate Marcus Simon, speaking at a Support Our Schools rally, said "I’m not saying everybody who supports Open FCPS is a member of the KKK, but when the KKK is on your side, you need to rethink your priorities,” he said, referring to the group of parents advocating for a full reopening of Fairfax County Public Schools.
Head of an SEIU union local chapter David Broder used the inflammatory flyer to fundraise for a local candidate, writing "Fairfax School Board member Laura Jane Cohen has been targeted by anti-equity, anti-worker, anti-LGBTQ extremists since she won her seat. And now the KKK is flyering her district. Join me in standing up against hate. Donate to LJC today!"
Cohen, the Springfield District representing said at a School board meeting Thursday night "Those messages were targeted to all of us up here on this dais,. No matter where we come from, no matter what we look like, the hate was equally distributed to every one of us up here tonight."
According to WTOP, Fairfax County police are currently investigating the incident.
Some Twitter users called out comments equating parents to the KKK, as well as questioned where the fliers had come from, and why, in this day and age of video doorbells, can no one produce video evidence of the incident.
One Fairfax resident, Jo Anne Sears, told the Daily Wire that calling parents advocating for school reopening part of the KKK was a "mark of increasing desperation."
"Slander is the tool of last resort," she said. "It’s very disturbing and it shows that Democrats have no argument other than to slander parents who across the political spectrum want their kids in school for in-person learning. The parents involved in this organization have worked tirelessly to ensure that the children who most need it get an education. It kills me that they are not listening to the neediest of the needy."
