White Supremacist Group Hangs Antisemitic, Pro-Kanye Banner Over L.A. Highway

Gathering above a busy Los Angeles freeway on Saturday, members of a white supremacist hate group displayed banners in support of Kanye West and his recent antisemitic rhetoric.

The banners hung above Interstate 405 read: “Kanye is right about the Jews” and “Honk if you know,” as well as references to several biblical verses, including one regarding “the synagogue of Satan.” The ralliers—photographed raising their arms in a Nazi salute—were identified as affiliates of the “Goyim Defense League,” a white supremacist groups with thousands of followers on social media.; also present was the Goyim Defense League’s leader, Jon Minadeo II.

Police dispatched to the scene were confronted by Minadeo, who began yelling at an officer about “diversity hires” and “immigrants taking over America thanks to Jewish laws,” according to StopAntisemitism, a non-profit watchdog.

The group’s weekend assembly comes two weeks after West tweeted out that he was “going death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” On Wednesday, the rapper stood by his comments in an interview with Piers Morgan, repeating that he was “absolutely not” sorry he’d made them.
