Brooklyn, NY - Anonymous hate letters bearing inflammatory rhetoric have been reported by multiple businesses in Brooklyn and Manhattan, prompting an investigation of the mail by the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force.

Police said that seven letters were received between September 29th and October 2nd.  All contained inflammatory language targeting Jews, African Americans and homosexuals.

Among the recipients of the letters were Weiss Bakery in Borough Park and the Israeli mission in Manhattan as well as three law offices, a jewelry store and a Harlem Starbucks.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind said that his office has received calls from several other Jewish owned businesses in Borough Park that also received the hate mail, including a l3th Avenue law firm and Satmar Meat of Boro Park on New Utrecht Avenue.

Each of the identical letters bore a large black swastika in a red circle and the words “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!! JUDEN RAUS,” along with additional text saying that African Americans and homosexuals “MUST BURN IN HELL.”

Hikind noted that the fact that the letters were printed, and not hand written, signified that they required forethought, making them even more disturbing.

“Whoever did this needs to be arrested,” Hikind told VIN News. “People need to know that hateful acts like this will get you sent to jail.”

Police were not immediately avail. to comment.

Thank you for your reporting, but if I may make a rude and picky suggestion... Please don't abbreviate the word "available" to "avail." This is not a text message. Online journalism standards are low enough in this country as is already.

Hey come on, they're 'good people': the Dumbell In Chief said so! After all, what's a little threatening hate mail when the Orange Yutz curses out protesters and calls foreigners rapists and killers? Get over it, it's nothing. Or is it?
