Racist Flyers Left Throughout Western Loudoun County
MIDDLEBURG, Va., January 14, 2022 – The Town of Middleburg Police Department was made aware of hate-filled flyers that were distributed throughout Western Loudoun County and the Town of Middleburg during the early morning hours of Friday, January 14th. These flyers expressed sentiments that are hateful, vile, and not representative of the community values of Middleburg, Loudoun County, Virginia, or our Nation.
“The Town of Middleburg is disgusted by this assault. We wholeheartedly condemn the type of speech that was spread throughout Western Loudoun County on Friday, January 14th,” said Mayor Bridge Littleton. “The citizens and community of Middleburg believe and embody the ideal that all people are created equal, and we are proud that Middleburg was the first town in Virginia to desegregate in 1961 through the heroic efforts of our citizens.”
“The best way to fight hate is for us to continue doing what we do, by treating all with honor, dignity, equality and respect,” said Vice-Mayor Peter Leonard-Morgan. “Our community is the great place it is because of the diversity that can be found in all our residents, businesses, and patrons.”
The Town’s Police Department and the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office are aware of the flyers and are working to identify any potential crimes that occurred and ensure justice is served.
