Antisemitic ‘Goyim Defense League’ (GDL) Flyers Target Texas Town

Just hours before the Jewish religious holiday of Yom Kippur antisemitic flyers were discovered on cars outside of a gun show in Allen.

“We had a nice time and I saw a flyer on the car and I kind of thought it was a menu for a local restaurant,” said Andy, who didn’t want his last night used. “This was hate speech. This wasn’t a different political view or supporting a particular political party, this was hate speech.”

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 targeting Jewish communities.

The antisemitic flyers had been placed on cars all around the parking lot.

Andy took the flyer home to show his wife, who was just as taken aback by the message.

“I can’t believe it’s 2023 and the symbols and the rhetoric in this flyer was reminiscent of World War II antisemitism and it really made me sick,” said his wife Catrina.

In a statement to NBC 5, the organizers of the event, Premier Gun Shows, released a statement that reads:

“Premier Gun Shows was not aware of this taking place yesterday. The individual or group that was distributing these on vehicles has done so at a few other shows in the past. They do not make their presence known. Premier Gun Shows absolutely and without a doubt rejects and condemns this messaging and the hate behind it. We have been advised that since many of our shows are hosted at public venues we cannot interfere or remove these flyers – they are protected under the First Amendment, no matter how terrible. Again to be very clear, these flyers do not reflect Premier Gun Shows values or beliefs.”
