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.
