Here’s some reaction to the drawing of Nazi swastikas on the Jewish Community Center in Fairfax. I’ll add more as I find them. Just appalling. As Del. Marcus Simon put it, “This days after Trump amplified anti-Semitic conspiracies in an effort to discredit legitimate and sincere protests of his Supreme Court nominee. The two may be unrelated but there is no doubt that racist / anti-Semitic / alt-right activity is on the rise in the Trump era.”

Loudoun County Board Chair Phyllis Randall: “I stand in solidarity with the Jewish community. I offer them my prayers and support. In the face of hate our love MUST be felt. Our goodness must be shared.”
