Wisconsin Town Plagued with Antisemitic ‘Goyim Defense League’ (GDL) Leaflets

Neighbors in Sussex are concerned after finding antisemitic fliers in their driveways over the weekend.

Britney Botts-Kastern has lived in a neighborhood north of Main Street since 2009. She said the area is generally pretty quiet.

“As the granddaughter of a Jewish man, it felt personal. It feels scary and I’m disgusted,” Botts-Kastern said.

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.

TMJ4’s Kaylee Staral drove around the neighborhood and found several similar fliers in other people’s yards.

The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department said their deputies in Sussex are aware of this incident and are currently looking into it.

“I feel like if we stay quiet about this we’re saying it’s OK and it’s welcome here. I don’t, my family doesn’t, and my friends don’t either,” Botts-Kastern expressed.

Earlier this year, there was a similar scene in Kenosha County. The unwelcome messages first appeared in late 2020 before a man was fined over $4,000 for littering. Those fliers reappeared this March.
