White Supremacist Group ‘GDL’ Targets Virginia Area Town

A Norfolk, Virginia neighborhood is horrified by disturbing flyers found at their doorsteps. Several people found papers with antisemitic messages outside their homes this weekend. 

Many homeowners on Belvedere and West Belvedere Roads in Norfolk found plastic bags filled with corn and flyers with messages attacking the Jewish faith.

“This piece of trash does not represent people’s goodness or what they say is evil. This is a piece of trash at the end of the day,” Norfolk homeowner Sarah Howell said. 

On Sunday, Sarah Howell found a bag in her front yard depicting what many are calling antisemitic messages. 

“Emotion-wise, it’s just an embarrassment for whoever did this,” Howell said. 

Rabbi Levi Brashevitzky leads Chabad of Tidewater in Norfolk and said the hateful rhetoric is not breaking down his faith.

“It’s a time for us to work together and restore positivity and kindness. And we can do so by introducing or reintroducing acts of positivity, charity, and good and making it routine in our lives,” said Brashevitzky 

NGO StopAntisemitism has identified the antisemitic group as the Goyim Defense League (GDL). White supremacist Jon Minadeo II is the group’s leader and was recently crowned as StopAntisemitism’s ‘Antisemite of the Week.’

Howell said she threw the flyer in the trash and hopes never to see the hateful messages again.

“They should be ashamed of spending their time doing something like this instead of living something a lot more productive,” Howell said. 

Under the Virginia Human Rights Act, the attorney general can investigate and prosecute religious workplace discrimination or any incidents in public and educational institutions.
