The Huntington Town Board is denouncing an antisemitic flyer that was left at a Jewish family’s home earlier this week. At the top of the flyer, “Let’s Go Brandon” is written, which is a rallying cry for some conservatives. The next line says, “Every single aspect of the Biden administration is Jewish.”
Below the words were photos of Cabinet members and advisors with Israeli flags next to each picture.
The flyer, which was only left at the Jewish family’s home, also bears the insignia of the Goyim Defense League. NGO StopAntisemitism, a leading non-partisan US-based organization fighting and exposing Jew hatred, has been tracking the Goyim Defense League’s (GDL) movement across the nation.
StopAntisemitism previously named the hate group’s leader, Jon Minadeo II, their “Antisemite of the Week.” Minadeo has made it his mission to target & harass the Jewish communities across America, both in person & online.
“I firmly believe you have a right to say what you want to say, but we have a responsibility to correct the record when what you say is hurtful, absurd, not true,” said Huntington Town Councilman Dave Bennardo.
Town officials say police have been notified and the Huntington Anti-Bias Task Force is involved.
Bennardo says it’s not clear if a crime was committed but calls out the flyer as hateful speech – saying it has no place in the Town of Huntington.
Rabbi Yakov Saacks, of Chai Center Dix Hills, says the hateful act against Jewish people has become like an everyday occurrence but urges everyone to have pride in who they are. “Whoever we are, whichever race, creed or gender, you have to have pride and the minute someone stops you from having that pride, you’ve lost and they’ve won,” Saacks says.
