Antisemitic fliers claiming that “Antifa is a Jewish communist militia” were spotted in the New Dorp area on Saturday morning. In bold text, the fliers read, “The original Antifa was a Jewish anti-Nazi militia… There is a war against all non-Jewish European-American nationalists.”
Anti-Nazi, according to the flier, means “anti-white nationalist, anti-American, anti-Christian.” The flier also maintains that anti-fascism is equivalent to communism.
The Advance/SILive.com observed four fliers in total on the commercial stretch between Sterling Ave. and Penn Ave. on Hylan Blvd.
Two fliers were posted on a medical office building, one was seen at the Hylan Blvd. and Tysens Ln. South Shore-bound bus stop, and another was posted on a pick-up sign in the Stop & Shop parking lot.
A fifth flier was posted at 342 New Dorp Lane on Friday, according to the NYPD.
The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force was notified and an investigation remains ongoing, an NYPD spokeswoman told the Advance/SILive.com.
The fliers appear to be a product of New Jersey European Heritage Association (NJEHA), which is listed at the bottom of the fliers, along with their website address. NJEHA is a “small, New Jersey-based white supremacist group” that “espouses racism, antisemitism and intolerance under the guise of ‘saving’ white European peoples from purported imminent extinction.”
According to the NJHEA website, the organization’s mission is to “secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
