Fliers from the Ku Klux Klan have been left on the front steps and doors of gay residents of the Hudson Valley town of Beacon, an hour north of New York City on the Hudson Line Metro North commuter train.
According to Mid-Hudson News, “The fliers had a KKK imagine on them and the word ‘death.’ Councilman Terry Nelson is fuming over the discovery. “Unfortunately, a first-grader of one of those families found the letter,” he said. “This has to stop. You have to stop doing this. To the coward who left those fliers, myself and a bunch of other people are allies of the LBGTQ community and just know that there are more of us than there are of you.”
The fliers were discovered over last weekend.
