White Supremacists ‘GDL’ Targeting High School Students in Long Island

Suffolk Police say antisemitic and political flyers were found on students’ cars near Bayport-Blue Point High School.

The superintendent said in a letter to parents that students immediately brought the flyers to the attention of school officials, who alerted Suffolk police, stating “Bayport-Blue Point works to provide a safe, inclusive learning environment that supports the needs for students and staff. Any reports of incidents that work against that are taken extremely seriously. Those found responsible for the dissemination of these flyers will be subject to strict disciplinary and/or action.”

NGO StopAntisemitism, a leading grassroots organization tackling antisemitism, identified the flyers belonging to the white supremacist group, the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The GDL’s leader, Jon Minadeo II, was named StopAntisemitism’s “Antisemite of the Week” twice. This is not the first time the GDL has targeted the Long Island residents. Last summer, the antisemitic group littered similar leaflets across Long Island neighborhoods.

Suffolk police said the incident was not criminal. As a precaution though, authorities patrolled the area around the school.

Suffolk County police tell News 12 they meet regularly with different groups and task forces to combat and address concerns in the community about antisemitism.

They are asking the public with any information about the incident near Bayport-Blue Point High School to give their department a call.
