Oregon County Residents Hit Twice with Antisemitic ‘GDL’ Flyers

Antisemitic flyers, once again are being found in Lane County, Oregon first spotted across the Thurston community in Springfield; now, they are on the south side of Eugene.

One neighbor who lives near Tugman park said she and her fellow neighbors saw bags all across the streets and in front of their homes.

“Well, it makes me super sad to know that people in our community our spreading hatred and antisemitic propaganda,” she said. “I think that hateful speech and propaganda definitely have consequences, and to know that it’s still happening in 2023 in Eugene is really concerning.”

NGO StopAntisemitism has identified the group responsible for the antisemitic flyer drop as the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The white supremacist group is led by Jon Minadeo II, previously listed as StopAntisemitism’s ‘Antisemite of the Week.’ Minadeo was in Florida this past weekend harassing Jewish residents as they attended Shabbat services Friday evening.

KEZI 9 News has reached out to Eugene Police Department, and they said there are no reports of these flyers in their system yet, but they will check again on Monday, February 20th, when their hate and bias report comes out.
