June 7, 2022 [St. Petersburg, FL] –Tampa Jewish community leaders warned constituents of antisemitic actions that took place over the weekend. According to a message sent out by the Board and Management of the Tampa Jewish Community Centers and Federation, anti-semitic flyers were handed out in the Hyde Park area. The FHM released a statement in response to these events.
“Instead of mail, Hyde Park residents had hatred delivered to their doors by an antisemitic white supremacist group over the weekend. These flyers are shocking, but their false assertions of Jewish control and conspiracy – in this case alleging that both Disney and the US Covid response are part of a Jewish “agenda” – typify an ancient antisemitism that has led to the persecution and death of Jews for millenia. Such tropes should have no place in Tampa or anywhere else.
