Hate fliers surface in Gilbert neighborhoods

Gilbert residents are discovering fliers titled “It's open season on white women” on their doorsteps from a nationwide white supremacist organization.

The fliers from the National Alliance picture NBA player Kobe Bryant and former NFL star O.J. Simpson — both of whom have been accused of crimes against white women — saying the two "represent only the tip of the iceberg of black on white crime."

Elizabeth Boepple, who lives near Warner and Gilbert roads, said she found a flier Saturday.

"It made my skin crawl because it was two days after the bombing in Scottsdale," Boepple said Tuesday.

Authorities have not yet disclosed a motive for the mail bomb attack Thursday at Scottsdale’s Office of Diversity and Dialogue that injured its director, Don Logan, who is black. About 500 fliers have been distributed in Gilbert, said Jasa Slovjanski, a spokesman for the Phoenix-area chapter of the National Alliance. About 2,500 to 3,000 fliers have been distributed monthly Valleywide — except in December, because “everybody needs some time off” — since September, he said. The increased activity is due to many things, he said, including President Bush's new immigration proposals and buzz about the film "The Passion of the Christ."

The National Alliance had no role in last week’s Scottsdale bombing, he said. “That's ludicrous,” he said. “The National Alliance does not operate in any illegal manner."

Susan Herskovits, spokeswoman for the FBI’s Phoenix office, said the bureau is monitoring the fliers. "If it gets people motivated to commit acts of violence against certain groups or races, we will monitor it," she said.
