Several antisemitic brochures were found littered throughout the Westwood neighborhood on the morning of June 15th.
Photos obtained by the Journal showed brochures with statements including:
- “Every single aspect of the media is Jewish”
- “Every single aspect of the Ukraine-Russia War is Jewish”
- “Every single aspect of Disney child grooming is Jewish”
- “Every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish”
- Jews are “the real slave bringers”
Also depicted was a faux New York Times page stating that there were Holocaust stories in “the Jew owned New York Times” before the end of World War II. The flyers were adorned with advertisements for GoyimTV, which is operated by the Goyim Defense League (GDL); the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has described the GDL as “a small network of virulently antisemitic provocateurs.”
Rabbi Daniel Bouskila of the Westwood Village Synagogue told the Journal that the brochures were found “on every front lawn of Ashton Avenue” nearby the Wilshire Corridor. “The brochures were in plastic bags filled with small stones, and were most probably thrown from a car onto each lawn or front door,” he said. “There’s nothing else we know about them, except what they say. When I photographed them, there are those scan codes that lead to websites, which I did not open.”
Jewish groups condemned the flyers.
Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action Agenda at the Simon Wiesenthal Center Rabbi Abraham Cooper said in a statement to the Journal, “This is but the latest disgusting chapter by [an] antisemitic group who use low-tech delivery system to spread anti-Semitic tropes coast to coast, usually adding names of local political leaders who happen to be Jewish. It effectively garners them PR for these Jew haters.”
Stop Antisemitism Executive Director Liora Rez said in a statement to the Journal, “Los Angeles Jews continue to be harassed by the distribution of flyers by the Goyim Defense League (GDL), this time throughout Westwood. The misinformation spread by these bigots is dangerous — how long will these antisemites be allowed to freely put the safety of Jews at risk?” Stop Antisemitism also sent the Journal a list of all of the GDL’s stunts since 2018, which showed a spike in incidents in 2021 and thus far in 2022.
