Antisemitic Goyim Defense League (GDL) Flyers Discovered in St. Louis

On a walk Saturday night, Taylor Sprehe noticed something odd on the sidewalk in front of his house.

A baggie full of what looked like small pebbles weighed down two pieces of paper. Sprehe thought it was garbage. But when Sprehe picked the items up, he noticed they were far less benign.

Instead, the piece of paper was a flier with antisemitic and anti-LGBTQ+ messages written on it. The bag of pebbles was a bag of lentil beans.

“Every single aspect of the Jewish Talmud is Satanic,” one flier read in large letters across the top.

The other flier included photos of queer Jewish activists with blue Stars of David placed on their foreheads. At the top, rainbow lettering said “every single aspect of the LGBTQ+ movement is Jewish.” A figure with devil horns at the top held a poster saying “I bet hell is fabulous.”

NGO StopAntisemitism has attributed the antisemitic flyers to the neo-Nazi group, the Goyim Defense League. The leader of the league is Jon Minadeo II. Simliar flyers were discovered in a nearby area in June of 2022.

“It took me a minute to comprehend it, because it’s kinda gibberish,” Sprehe says. “Then I realized what it was, and it was an obvious hate message.”

A website at the bottom of each flier contains more fliers with directions on how to distribute them. “Prowling around at late hours will immediately make you appear suspicious if spotted,” the website reads. It advised “paperboys” to distribute fliers during the afternoon or early evening to “camouflage activism activities.”

Other fliers promoted conspiracy theories, such as “every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish” and “every single aspect of Disney child grooming is Jewish.”

Even though text on the fliers said they were distributed “without malicious intent,” their messages and placement didn’t feel so innocent.

“It was disheartening to find that in my neighborhood, but finding that anywhere is a bummer,” Sprehe says.
