Anti-Semitic ‘Rat Poison’ Packets Dropped In South Carolina Neighborhood

“As far as the fear factor, they got me …”

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Residents of an upscale South Carolina Lowcountry suburb are reporting the receipt of ant-semitic propaganda packets placed on their driveways – packets laced with rat poison. The dissemination of these packets is the latest example of escalating domestic tensions accompanying the rapidly deteriorating geopolitical situation in the Middle East.

“A group of hateful and mentally unstable individuals distributed anti-semitic propaganda on every driveway throughout our neighborhood,” Alyson Kenny posted on her Instagram page this week. “The messages were zipped inside baggies full of what we now know is rat poisoning. I believe these individuals acted with hopes of creating fear and also disruption – and maybe even distrust – among our neighbors.”

Kenny – an etiquette instructor – resides with her family in Brickyard Plantation, a community located off of Highway 17 near historic Boone Hall plantation. She posted Instagram message on Tuesday afternoon (October 24, 2023), indicating the messages were placed in neighborhood driveways sometime “between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m. (EDT)” that morning.

“As far as the fear factor, they got me,” Kenny said. “I have a one and three-year-old and two dogs and now I have to add rat poisoning to the long list of things I worry might harm my family.”

While Kenny said the messages raised safety concerns, she was confident her neighbors – and the broader Mount Pleasant community – would not be intimidated by the anti-semitic campaign.

“The messages of hate and discrimination will have no influence in this neighborhood, in this community or in our hearts,” she said. “Instead, we will continue to come together to show love and support for those hurting by these vulgar and malicious acts of crime.”

Images of the propaganda leaflets were provided to this media outlet. We would warn our audience prior to clicking on these materials that they are exceedingly disturbing and contain graphic images.

You can view the propaganda leaflets here, here, here and here. Again, please be warned before clicking that the material is disturbing and contains graphic images.

In a written post accompanying her video message, Kenny urged others who received similar messages to contact local law enforcement.

“If anyone else in the Charleston area has received these zip lock baggies please report to the Mount Pleasant police department as this is a federal crime,” she wrote.

This media outlet has reached out to the Mount Pleasant police department in the hopes of obtaining any information on potential criminal investigations into these messages. As soon as we receive an update from law enforcement, we will be sure to provide it to our audience.

Needless to say, our media outlet condemns not only the vile, horrific content of these poisonously hateful messages, but also the danger posed by the inclusion of actual poison in their dissemination. Hopefully, those responsible for the distribution of these materials be identified, apprehended and brought to justice.

Stay tuned …

With the possible exception of the last page, honestly, what was untrue about the displayed propaganda?
Serious question.

The rat poison makes no sense and leads me to believe this might be a false flag “hate crime”, much like Jussie Smolette, or the Indian guy a few years back who claimed white supremacists were throwing rocks at the house he shared with his white wife and in laws. I believe it was finally determined that the whole thing was done by him.

Is that what you truly believe: that Jews are facilitating the dispersal of this? No, it’s not. You are obviously so jaded and hateful that in your comment that you cannot even refer to the holocaust as a certainty, but only a mere possibility. SHAME ON YOU! It is sad that people can even still deny that, and even sadder that they still try to find a way to blame Jews for anti semitism. Just listen to yourself. This is pure conspiracy and does not even make sense. Also, with regards to what the flyer refers to: Yes, there are Jews in the government… because A majority voted for them. How is that some sort of infiltration of the government when it is, by definition, Democratic? I do not know if you are just simply uneducated on the political organization of our country, or if, yet again, you just want to agree with and question what is wrong with a federal hate crime

What can you expect in a state where MAGA reigns? The Republican Party and Trump have empowered racists and those who hate Jewish people to act out in a way we have not seen since the 1950s. MAGA has corrupted every part of what was the Republican Party. It is now a hate-filled cesspool that turns a blind eye to violence and threats of violence against political enemies, those who disagree with Trump, those who speak out against authoritarianism, minorities, religious minorities, and gay people. We must purge this party from government before it destroys everything this nation has come to stand for.

All Republicans are to blame. The party is filled with nothing but haters, Trump worshipers, and cowards who will do nothing about the haters and Trump worshipers.

Hey Frank, you are a jackass! Complete and utter nonsense. Trump’s daughter converted to Judaism, and her children are Jewish. You diatribe is indicative of your level of non-education. I am a Republican, support Trump, and love others as Jesus commanded that we do. Enough said about your idiotic post.
Regarding the packets, certainly someone in this neighborhood caught these actions on their Ring doorbell camera? This should not be a difficult crime to solve.

Amen. It’s like you were reading my mind while I was reading his drivel. I do know which political party is throwing hate towards Israel and the Jewish people, and it isn’t the Republicans…
