Anti-Semitic Flyers In Omaha Advertise White Supremacist Book Club

Anti-Semitic flyers urging people to join a white supremacist book club were recently found in Omaha neighborhoods, the Omaha World Herald reported Tuesday.

The flyers contain hate messages against Jewish people, encourage people to join pro-white activist clubs and direct people to a neo-Nazi website. There are 19 of the “book clubs” across the nation, according to the website’s own list, which includes a Nebraska club.

Officer Michael Pecha confirmed that the department is aware of the flyers but said police have not received any complaints. He directed people to contact the Anti-Defamation League and said the flyers must have direct threats to constitute a crime.
