Antisemitic ‘Goyim Defense League’ (GDL) Flyers Found in North Carolina Neighborhoods

Hundreds of antisemitic flyers appeared in at least five north Raleigh neighborhoods overnight. The flyers link to a website to an organization called Goyim Defense League, which is currently tracked as a hate group.

One woman, who wished to remain anonymous, discovered a multitude of fliers left on neighbors’ driveways while taking an evening walk in Fairfax Hills. Just three minutes away, another woman reported more hate flyers in her own neighborhood of Hickory Hills. Just a few more minutes away, another neighbor near North Hills reported finding one of the flyers.

North Ridge also woke up to antisemitic flyers in their driveways. According to neighbors, there’s a notable Jewish population in North Ridge due to its walkable distance to the Orthodox Synagogue on Falls of Neuse Road. The synagogue appears to be very close to all of the neighborhoods targeted.

A woman and her daughter also found the flyers in Quail Hollow Sunday morning.

One neighbor called the police, and they transferred him to 911.

This is far from the first time antisemitic flyers have been distributed around Raleigh’s neighborhoods. Less than a year ago, Fairfax Hills residents woke up to flyers linked to the same organization.

The advocacy organization fighting antisemitism – StopAntisemitism – has attributed the antisemitic flyers to the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The league travels the country distributing these hateful flyers targeted Jewish communities.

The Goyim Defense League, according to message boards, said their plan is to place the flyers in middle class neighborhoods which could catch the attention of local news.

Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman said a person caught distributing these flyers could be charged with ethnic intimidation if the it contains a threat. That’s a Class 1 misdemeanor, meaning someone convicted of that crime could face up to 120 days in jail.
