It maybe the season for peace and good will, but in Medford citizens are in an uproar over anti-Muslim posters throughout the city earlier this month, prompting outrage, charges of racism and pleas for public denunciation.   The poster’s creators, a white supremacist organization called American Vangaurd, told local KOBI-News that in addition to a Muslim-free America, “We would prefer to secure and maintain white hegemony in the United States.”
