BROOKLINE, November 7, 2018 – Senator Wayne D. Fontana (D-Pittsburgh) today condemned those who have been posting hate propaganda in the Brookline community. The senator made the following statement:

“Posting messages that advocate hatred and violence in our community is despicable and will not be tolerated. We cannot welcome Patriot Front or any white supremacist group into our community. Following the tragic shooting in Squirrel Hill last month, we can no longer excuse or ignore neo-Nazi propagandists and the hatred they spew. I strongly discourage them from their recent spreading of hateful propaganda in the Brookline neighborhoods. I will continue to support and encourage law enforcement, Duquesne Light and the Port Authority to investigate Patriot Front’s actions and to catch and prosecute those who seek to spread this sickness in our communities. I also urge citizens to cooperate fully with the police as they investigate this incident.”
