Leaflets Spreading Message Of Hate

Shocked by a rash of racist fliers dropped on their doorsteps, Anne Arundel County residents and political leaders are struggling to come up with a defense against what appears to be the message of white supremacy.

The leaflets — which usually have been enclosed in plastic, weighted with pebbles and distributed at night by members of a white supremacist group called the National Alliance — advertise politics of total racial segregation.

The fliers have cropped up in Crofton, Arnold and Edgewater, and in several neighborhoods in Annapolis, including Admiral Heights, Germantown, Murray Hill and Eastport.

Police cannot take any action against the fliers because they are constitutionally protected speech.
