Among his priority issues, Colorado Congressional candidate Erik Aadland lists “Protecting Israel.” The first-time candidate touts his “extensive time working in Israel,” and his “many dear friends, Jewish and Muslim,” who live there. The Army veteran also cites his military background and links it to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, noting that he graduated West Point “in 2002 not long after 9/11.”
A young man who volunteered on multiple Colorado Republican campaigns, including the 2020 Trump reelection effort, has been identified as a Groyper, the antisemitic white nationalist group led by Nick Fuentes.
In his play The Tempest, William Shakespeare wrote, “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.” Sometime in the 19th Century, the quote morphed into the proverb, “Politics makes strange bedfellows.”It strikes me a deeply apropos in some cases when it comes to today’s GOP and how politically conservative Jews seem okay with their proximity to the far-right. This isn’t to say the left is free from antisemitism — far from it. It’s the paradox of being a Jew in the United States today; we see antisemitism across the political spectrum.
“No, dude, are you kidding me? It’s a Jew. I have got no mercy for Jews.”

Over the weekend, the Goyim Defense League was at it again, distributing anti-Semitic flyers to residences in Parker with their usual schtick — “outing” Jews connected to the Biden administration and blaming them for everything related to COVID-19. This incident was again one of many across the country. NPR reports that similar flyers from the GDL also appeared in driveways in Colleyville, TX, where in January a man entered a synagogue and held a rabbi and his congregants hostage. This time, at least in Colorado, however, it’s possible that the individual culprits have been identified.
Residents in the Country Club neighborhood of Denver at Marion Street and 1st St. were greeted with a rude awakening on the morning of Jan. 23 when they discovered their block had been targeted overnight with a flyer drop by the so-called “Goyim Defense League” — a neo-Nazi organization who has been waging a disinformation war across the country for several months. A night later, similar flyers were reportedly distributed in Miami Beach and Surfside neighborhoods in Florida and along Union Street, Pacific Avenue and Divisadero Street in San Francisco.
