The flyers include a string of invective words targeting the Fairfax County school board, and advertise the racist organization’s website, and its podcast.

The Fairfax County police department provided a statement regarding the discovery of the flyers:

FCPD strives to ensure that Fairfax County remains as one of the safest jurisdictions to live and work. Hateful rhetoric such as this has no place in Fairfax county or anywhere else.  Chief Davis has tasked our criminal intelligence unit to lead this effort and although there are no known threats to the school board member, we take these matters very seriously
