    SEATTLE - Police are investigating after about 50 fliers linked to a white nationalist website were found littered outside homes and pedestrian walkways in West Seattle over the weekend.

    The fliers were placed inside plastic bags with rocks and left on planting strips near the Alaska Junction and several other areas of West Seattle, said Jonah Spangenthal-Lee of the Seattle police.

    "The fliers featured Cold War-era slogan(s), rudimentary clip art and the URL for an incoherent white nationalist website, which reads like someone spilled a word-a-day calendar all over a copy of Mein Kampf," Spangenthal-Lee wrote in a posting in the Seattle police blotter.

    Similar fliers have previously been found elsewhere in the Puget Sound region, he said.

    Investigators have not yet connected any suspects to the incident.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact the Seattle Police Department's Bias Crimes Unit at 206-684-5550.
