Mayor & Director of Public Safety Issue Statement on White Nationalist Flyers Found Downtown

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- On Friday, several Bloomfield residents reported seeing flyers for a White nationalist group called New Jersey European Heritage Association (NJEHA) downtown. Mayor Michael Venezia and Director of Public Safety Samuel DeMaio have issued the following statement regarding the flyers:

“In the year 2019, we understand the term ‘European heritage’ to be a euphemism for White nationalism, bigotry, and intolerance of everyone else. Bloomfield is a wonderful town because of its great diversity, not in spite of it, and the person or persons who posted the White nationalist flyers, disguised as ‘European heritage,’ are fighting a losing battle. The Bloomfield Police Department is actively investigating this incident, and takes all forms of hate speech and hate crimes extremely seriously.”
