New Jersey Neighborhood Cased with Anti-Jewish ‘GDL’ Propaganda

On Friday, March 17 around 8:30 in the morning, Theresa Charrkas was out walking her dog on Maple Place in Clifton, NJ, when she spotted something unusual on a neighbor’s lawn. She went over to get a closer look and saw that it was a full-color flyer, folded in half and stuck in a Ziploc-type baggie. There was also an unknown substance inside which she said, “looked like rabbit food.” She further posited that it may have been put in the baggie in order to prevent it from being blown away. A closer look revealed a confusing message on the flyer, “Every single aspect of gun control is Jewish.”

Charrkas walked to the next house and spotted a similar baggie there. The message facing up in this one read, “Every single aspect of abortion is Jewish.” 

NGO StopAntisemitism is one of the leading watchdog organizations following and reporting about the Goyim Defense League (GDL). StopAntisemitism has followed their antisemitic leaflet drops across the nation. The GDL’s leader, Jon Minadeo II, recently engaged in an antisemitic exchange with law enforcement when he was approached about a similar flyer drop in Florida this weekend.

The flyer also has photos of several politicians, all with large six-pointed stars, also called Stars of David, on their foreheads. A logo on the flyer suggests the shape of the Nazi swastika.

Growing concerned, she walked on to a third house and found yet another of the same antisemitic propaganda on the lawn. “I wasn’t sure if I should touch them,” she said, and so Charrkas went to a neighbor, Margaret Curreri, to ask for advice. Curreri encouraged Charrkas to call the police, which she did. She then returned to her house to see if there was a similar thing on her lawn but saw nothing at any of the homes on her street.

Police showed up a few hours later and canvassed the area, looking for any additional baggies, but found none. They also viewed footage from Curreri’s Ring camera but found nothing which showed who was responsible. Charrkas said that two of the three baggies had been collected before the police arrived, probably by the homeowners, she thought. “I didn’t even realize we had a community policing department. I was happy to see them canvassing the area,” she said.

Curreri, who also saw the antisemitic messages, said, “I am outraged, to say the least, of this antisemitic propaganda turning up on my street and in my neighborhood, or anywhere. This type of hatred is unwarranted and despicable.”
