(PresidentialHill.com)- The United States has been “wrecked” by Jews, according to neo-nazis who have been projecting anti-Semitic words and hate symbols on buildings in Florida recently.
Antisemitism watchdogs have connected the attacks, which appear to have started on Saturday, to the far-right organizations National Socialism Florida (NSF) and Goyim Defense League (GDL). Plans to “broaden their efforts to intimidate Floridian people,” according to one group, were warned of.
Local news sources claim that on January 15 at about 9 p.m. ET, a projection appeared on the AT&T building on Gardenia Street in West Palm Beach. The words “Jews did 9-11 the FBI aided” can be seen scrolling across the building’s face in video footage of the incident.
Three males are seen laughing on a nearby sidewalk in the video, which Stop Antisemitism supposedly captured via a live broadcast of the perpetrators. Two men are wearing hoodies, and the third is sporting a baseball cap and mask.
One tells the camera, “If you guys want, you can super chat your message [of] what you want on the building.” On the side of the building, they projected a swastika.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has called GDL “a small network of virulently antisemitic provocateurs” whose name and branding parody the ADL. The individual speaking in the video looks to be GDL founder Jon Minadeo II, who has traveled the nation engaging in antisemitic acts.
According to Liora Rez, executive director of Stop Antisemitism, Newsweek was able to link Minadeo’s actions to one of his tweets on the social media website Gab.
Ben Popp, a researcher specializing in investigations at the ADL’s Center on Extremism, claimed that the increase in incidents was related to Minadeo’s relocation from California to Florida and that the organization had tracked other GDL members who traveled to Florida to participate in the demonstrations.
The males were challenged but were uncooperative, local police subsequently said to news station WPTV, adding that a projector and generator had been used in the incident.
According to Mike Jachles, a police spokesperson, “This is a welcoming—this is a varied city.” “But that isn’t appropriate here. We do not welcome these messages.”
NSF is a “small but growing” neo-Nazi group with a Duval County, Florida headquarters that “openly supports antisemitism, fascism, and white supremacy,” according to ADL.
Stop Antisemitism published a video of a different building projection, this time in Jacksonville, that was watermarked with the NSF emblem across the Wells Fargo building.
The mayor of West Palm Beach, Keith James, has condemned the “heinous and despicable act” of projecting an anti-Semitic image on cars and other vehicles.
