Michigan Residents Pummeled with Antisemitic ‘GDL’ Flyers

A Novi, Michigan, man is speaking out after antisemitic flyers were placed on his and his neighbor’s driveway What Jeff Lewis likes most about his Novi neighborhood is the diversity. “I trade vegetables over the fence with two of my different neighbors. All three of us are from different ethnic backgrounds,” he said.

That diversity was attacked over the weekend. “This is shocking here, especially given the multinational, multi-cultural nature of this area,” said Lewis.

Someone left sandwich bags, with antisemitic flyers inside, in driveways in his neighborhood, including his. There were corn kernels in the bags to stop them from blowing away.

NGO StopAntisemitism has identified the antisemitic flyers and attributed them to the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The GDL is led by white supremacist Jon Minadeo II. Minadeo and his followers travel the country harassing the Jewish communities with flyer drops, anti-Jewish banner drops, and even physical harassment outside religious centers. Minadeo and his members are no strangers to Michigan. They have participated in flyer drops in surrounding cities and towns.

“I was gut punched. This is 2023. This isn’t 1963. This shouldn’t be happening,” Lewis said. Novi police said they’re investigating.
