NSW Shadow Treasurer and NSW Parliamentary Friends of Israel deputy chair, Walt Secord saw antisemitic COVID conspiracy theory graffiti in Port Macquarie on the mid-North Coast and felt compelled to remove it – which he did.

Walt Secord spots anti-Semitic graffiti

The graffiti was at Lighthouse Beach in Port Macquarie and Mr Secord discovered it when he was walking along the popular coast earlier this week on holiday.

The graffiti read: “The real virus is globalism” with a Star of David accompanying it.

“I have to admit that I was startled to see COVID anti-Jewish graffiti in regional NSW. Previously I had only read about it online and from reports by the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, NSW Jewish Board of Deputies and the Australia-Israel Jewish Affairs Council,” Mr Secord said.

“But to see this crazy stuff was very confronting – especially in Port Macquarie, of all places. I had always imagined that it was something you would see in the dark corners of the internet or from crazy conspiracy theorists in North America or Europe.”

Mr Secord also reported the graffiti to the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies.

(Port Macquarie is about 390 km north of Sydney and has a population of almost 50,000.)
