Yesterday, a Virginia neighborhood was very alarmed to discover that someone had littered residents' yards with Easter eggs stuffed with white supremacist literature. Shocking, but of course the Easter bunny always did get hateful after too many beers.
WRIC reports that Jackie and Brandon Smith were holding an Easter egg hunt for their three-year-old when Jackie spotted an egg she didn't remember putting out. Upon popping it open, they discovered crumpled-up papers declaring that "diversity = white genocide" and "Mass immigration and forced assimilation of non-whites into our lands is genocide." That'll put you right off your Peeps. Several neighbors found similar eggs.
The Smiths, obviously, were not pleased:
"We don't want other kids around here who can read being like, 'Hey mommy what's the million man white march or what's the genocide project?' Most of us don't want to explain genocide to our 6-year-olds," said Jackie.
"It's disturbing knowing my son is walking around the yard a lot and finding that. It's something he may find and have questions about that not necessarily at his age –I want to explain to him."
Not to mention that there is something very, very creepy about the idea of a passel of white supremacists skulking around your peaceful suburban neighborhood, lobbing eggs full of hate into your yard. The cops are investigating and may pursue charges of trespassing or littering.
Makes that Xanax egg look downright charming!
