Share U.S. Ku Klux Klan racism Charlottesville Ku Klux Klan fliers have been appearing in small communities in and around Charlottesville since the right-wing rally that led to deadly violence this summer, and experts say this is the hate group’s desperate attempt to stay relevant with the younger movement of white nationalists. The fliers, which include a KKK hotline number along with an anti-Semitic crack about having a “menorah in front the White House,” have found their way into several Virginia towns including Leesburg, Gore, Front Royal, Strasburg, and Winchester, as well as Washington, D.C.  Locals have been planning to make signs in protest and hold community discussions about tolerance to dampen any influence the Klan could have.

One expert on hate groups said the Klan takes public actions such as this to compensate for its more private loss of relevance in the Trump era. “They do use flier distribution to compensate for a lack of membership,” Carla Hill, an investigative researcher for the Anti-Defamation League, told Newsweek.  “The alt-right views the Klan as past its prime,” she added, noting the Klan has also struggled with years of infighting. The Ku Klux Klan is dropping off fliers around Virginia.

The bird seed, she said, was probably used to keep the papers from flying away. The FBI is investigating fliers that appeared in front of four homes in Upperville with
