New York State Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement in response to an anti-Semitic video created by the Rockland County Republican Party:
“This video is deeply disturbing and should be removed and condemned immediately by the Rockland County Republican Party. To clearly state that members of the Jewish community are a threat to families and our safety and that they must be stopped is despicable and completely unacceptable. Attacking those who are different than we are only breeds hate and makes us weaker. We must all stand together to denounce this hateful video.”
The A.G is referring to a post on the Rockland County Republican Party Facebook page where the following was posted:
A STORM IS BREWING IN ROCKLAND.
If They Win, We Lose!
The stakes have never been higher. The future of our County, our communities, and our homes hangs in the balance of this year’s election on November 5th.
If Aaron Weider and his Ramapo machine win, they will control the upcoming redistricting of the County Legislative Districts and spread the influence of Ramapo throughout our County.
If this happens, it will be the end of our County as we know and love it. On November 5th, we must vote like our way of life depends on it.
On Election Day, stand with County Executive Ed Day and Take Back Control to Preserve and Protect our County!
