White supremacist flyers found in Weston

Flyers promoting white supremacy were found in numerous driveways throughout the Norfield Road and Kettle Creek Road area early Tuesday morning.

At 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, police received a call about a car stopping in driveways on Kettle Creek Road and throwing flyers into their driveways. Police weren’t able to locate the vehicle.

The flyers were also found throughout Westport, Wilton and Norwalk. In all, 30 flyers were found in Weston driveways.

Each flyer was found in a clear plastic casing and read “Make America White Again.” The flyers also linked to a white nationalist website run by “alt-right” extremists.

The flyers called for securing “the existence of our race” and the “future of white children.”

First Selectman Nina Daniel said that this action wasn’t illegal, dangerous or threatening, but said the town “condemns this form of free speech” and finds the content “deplorable.”

“This is inappropriate in a town that has the values that Weston has,” Daniel said. “If this has happened in your neighborhood please let the police know.”

At Tuesday’s Police Commission meeting, Police Chief John Troxell said that the department is investigating the incident with other local departments but at this time would only be able to charge the person responsible with littering.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact Weston police at 203-222-2600.

    While the First Selectman may not find this action “threatening,” I would imagine many of us do. She says it’s “inappropriate in a town that has the values Weston has.” Curious if there are places where such action would be considered more appropriate.

    IF they find the perpetrator certainly that person can be charged with more than LITTERING! I am QUITE certain “Hate Speech” is a crime! From this journalistic report, this event does not seem to be of concern to Town Officials, while anyone who is not White and/or Christian in Weston, it might be very much of concern.

      Unfortunately, former SCOTUS Antonin Scalia took the position (and ruled) that even very narrow forms of hate speech regulation violate the First Amendment.
