Florida Hit Again with Antisemitic ‘Goyim Defense League’ (GDL) Flyers

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Monday that residents of two developments had antisemitic content left in their neighborhoods.

The sheriff’s office told WPBF 25 News that residents in the Emerald Forest and Sugar Pond Manor developments had a small bag with antisemitic and extremist speech brochures left on the edge of their driveways.

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. Similar flyers were found in a nearby city earlier this month.

The sheriff’s office added its deputies collected the items and said there were no direct threats made at this time.

West Palm Beach police said someone also left similar packets on four different streets in the city’s southeast end.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office said they found about 100 of the packets and told residents:

“If you find a packet, it is suggested that you use a plastic bag or gloves to pick it up and throw it away. Please do not attempt to open it. Discard it immediately.”

In March, Atlantis police arrested Nicholas Bysheim in connection to passing out similar flyers.

Bysheim told WPBF 25 News that he was exercising his right to free speech and did not intend to stop.

“I’m going to continue distributing literature in my nation, my nation. Lineage built this nation,” said Bysheim.

Lerman said officials need to continue prosecuting the people behind the flyers.

“And maybe that needs to be their wakeup call, that this is something that they need to rethink. And their message needs to be silenced,” said Lerman.

West Palm Beach Police said they were looking at surveillance video for clues and asked residents to check their own cameras.

The sheriff’s office added its deputies collected the items and said there were no direct threats made at this time.
