Rep. Bass Releases Statement Condemning Anti-Semitic Flyers
LOS ANGELES, CA– Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement after reports of anti-Semitic flyers being left at a Westwood business:
“I am deeply concerned that anti-Semitic flyers with swastikas have been left at a Westwood business this week, and I unequivocally condemn whomever is responsible for this despicable action. Los Angeles thrives because of our diversity, and the Jewish community is an integral part of our great city’s history and culture. All Angelenos deserve to live, work and play in a city free from intimidation and discrimination.
“It is unfortunate that we see these spikes in hateful rhetoric every time there is increased violence in the Middle East. I know that Los Angeles is better than this; this sort of hateful rhetoric has no place in our neighborhoods, and it must stop immediately.”
