Antisemitic messages litter Mandarin homes

Jacksonville, Fl — Former State Representative Jason Fischer says he was shocked and saddened to find an antisemitic message outside of his Mandarin home Sunday morning.

Fischer told Jacksonville’s Morning News that a neighbor also found the Nazi propaganda on his driveway. Fischer called the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, and says the agency is investigating.

Neither he nor his neighbor have surveillance that would identify who is responsible. Fischer openly wondered if he was targeted, but so far there is no evidence of that.

“The whole Mandarin community really was targeted, which was very unfortunate.”, said Fischer.

Earlier this month the Anti-Defamation League published a report on bias and antisemitism that found widespread belief in anti-Jewish tropes, at rates unseen for decades.
