The letter writer–literally, they are hand-written–sees Trump as the “new sheriff in town” who will “cleanse” the nation:
The handwritten and photocopied letters, received over the course of the week, were signed by “Americans for a Better Way.” They call Muslims “a vile and filthy people” who “worship the devil” and evoke Trump.
The SF Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a statement related to the incidents that includes a list of other incidents tracing to Trump’s empowerment of racists and describing a “spike” in hate-related incidents since the election:
CAIR’s national office has noted a spike in incidents targeting American Muslims and other minority groups since the November 8 presidential election. Over 100 anti-Muslim incidents have occurred across the country according to CAIR and over 700 incidents targeting different minority groups have been documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
CAIR also offers an online form for filing a report of witnessed religious discrimination.
