At a time of rising white supremacy and increased political polarization nationwide, it is profoundly concerning that there have been four separate incidents of vandalism using anti-Semitic symbolism here on Cape Cod in recent weeks. The Sandwich Democratic Town Committee joins the school committee in condemning these acts in the strongest possible terms and reaffirms our commitment to rejecting all forms of hatred and religious bigotry. We applaud our partners in law enforcement for pursuing this case so the perpetrators are brought to justice and a clear signal is sent that there will be zero tolerance for these crimes in our community, regardless of one’s age. Lastly, because this “vandalism” is a hate crime, it is a matter of critical public interest. We urge our local press to take this crime seriously and to cover it thoroughly. The public has a right to know.
