USA - Anti-semitic letters showing up in Hays County

Hays County, TX
- Anti-semitic letters, placed in plastic bags with pebbles, were placed in front of homes across several cities in Hays County.

One of the letter’s headlines reads, “Every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish,” and the letter claims the names of Jewish leaders in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, vaccine scientists and more. Another letter questions why Jewish people have majority control over the media.

On Sunday night, Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra brought this issue to light through a social media post and said reports of the letters started coming to him on Saturday. There have been at least six letters sent out based on reports made to him, but many more letters could have gone out to residents, Becerra said.

Homes in San Marcos, Kyle and Dripping Springs received the letters, according to Becerra. The target audience of the letters is unknown, but Becerra said those who reported the incident were white, so he believes it could have been cherry picking; trying to target and scare the Jewish community.

Additionally, Becerra said he is under the impression that someone was driving by at night and throwing the letters out of their window because of the rocks inside the bags.
