Sheriff, Leesburg Police Investigating Newest Spate of KKK Fliers

Following Tuesday’s combative School Board meeting, a new round of propaganda fliers by individuals claiming to be with the Loyal White Knights Ku Klux Klan were found outside of homes in Ashburn and Leesburg this morning.

According to a Leesburg Police Department press release, the department received reports of suspicious fliers found outside of residences in the town’s southeast quadrant this morning. A sheriff’s office press release stated that fliers, placed in plastic bags and weighed down with birdseed, were also found in the driveways of several homes along Cross Timber Drive, Citation Drive, and Deer Chase Place in Ashburn.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the fliers appear to contain propaganda material and were distributed in response to discussed at this week’s School Board meeting.

Both public safety agencies stated the material appears to have been distributed randomly and was not specifically targeting any particular households. Detectives will work with local, state and federal partners to identify any potential threats to the community.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with information about the cases or with possible surveillance video should contact LCSO Detective Pickrell at 703-777-1021. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app.

    Ah yes. Right on time. The ole’ “Loudoun is a hotbed of racism” shtick again.

    Perhaps this time, somebody will be called out in the act. It’s always a mystery these people have never been seen on camera, smart phone, or by any eye witnesses. The whole matter dies away, nothing more is said, until the next time the left needs a diversion. We’re being played. Here’s hoping we find out this time.

      Wow. Did you work as a projectionist in a past life? Because you are really good at it.

    The Klan is reprehensible in every way, but what does this have to do with school board meetings other than a feeble effort to insinuate that people who think the school board is nuts may be somehow involved with the Klan?

    Does distributing ignorant and mean literature now constitute a crime? And what makes the fliers “suspicious?” Unwanted, almost certainly, but “suspicious?” Those lurking in the night distributing fliers are suspicious.

    Once in Vienna we had something akin to this left on our car overnight. I took it, laughed and threw it away. I suggest that is the best course of action for everyone. Mock them and then ignore the few ignorant cowards tossing bags of birdseed at a few houses.

    We have actual crimes in Loudoun County like the school board persecuting residents in secret forums. I suggest the Sheriff and his team have far more urgent matters to deal with than some badly worded fliers randomly lobbed around at a few homes. If the few actual Klan members anywhere near Loudoun County ever showed up with ill-intent, all the decent folks in Loudoun County would be there to stand against them. And I think they know it and that’s why they perform these cowardly deeds under the cover of darkness.

    You can debate whether “Critical Race Theory” has any place in today’s world and you can marvel at the way Fox News does Putin’s work for him (just saw Laura Ingram suggest defunding the military) but you can’t deny that Loudoun has a few racists running around looking to make trouble and exploit the moment to push their sick agenda. Let’s hope the police figure out who’s doing this littering and teach them something about actual American justice.

      I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that Loudoun’s insurrectionists are more scared of the School Board than they are of the Klu Klux Klan.

      Let’s go slowly, Zoom.

      1. The criticism of Fight for Schools was ….. legal.

      2. The nonsense histrionics of Beth Barts against whomever she is ranting about this week is ….. legal.

      3. These fliers are ….. legal.

      We have free speech for a reason. Not to protect speech that everybody agrees with but to protect arguments with which some or most disagree with. Or did you learn civics from LCPS?

    Once a week I find political propaganda in my driveway but usually I just throw the Loudoun Times Mirror away.

    I suggest the Sheriff check on the whereabouts of the Chardonnay ANTIFA ladies. They’ve been busy creating and circulation nasty flyers, in addition to threatening to infiltrate groups who disagree with them.

    I did not see anything in the flyer that I disagree with.

      Rainbow flags offend you and you agree with the KKK?
