Antisemitic Projections Spotted on Jacksonville Building During NFL Game

Hateful displays have evidently re-appeared in Jacksonville – as the Jaguars played at TIAA Bank Field on Saturday night – a swastika and cross were allegedly projected on the side of the CSX building.

There’s no question that Jacksonville lost last night. It lost yet another fight against racism, xenophobia, and anti-semitism, and the silence from our city’s leadership to denounce this symbol of hate that was broadcasted on the @CSX building.@lennycurry @GovRonDeSantis pic.twitter.com/LtseesQUj6— Alex (@JohnBrown_Stan) January 15, 2023

CSX says it condemns in the strongest possible terms the antisemitic imagery, saying it is hurtful and in no way represents the company or its employees.

“The increased acts of antisemitism in Jacksonville are unacceptable. They are an appalling display of intolerance, which sows hatred and undermines our greatest strength – our diversity,” CSX said in a statement.

The Jewish advocacy group – StopAntisemitism – tweeted a separate incident occurred during the same evening, documenting who was behind the hate – NatSocFlorida. It is believe the group is behind both incidents.

In response, Jacksonville Councilmember Rory Diamond says he will file a bill this week aiming to prevent symbols of hate from being projected on private property.
