Andrew Torba

Andrew Torba is the founder and CEO of Gab, a social media platform that has been embraced by neo-Nazis and radical far-right groups.

The platform is used by extremists such as Robert Bowers who killed 11 people at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018. Minutes before Bowers began his killing spree, he took to Gab to declare: “I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

Torba himself embarked on an antisemitic tirade this week using Gab’s account on Twitter. “We’re building a parallel Christian society because we are fed up and done with the Judeo-Bolshevik one” Torba declared, invoking an antisemitic trope traditionally pushed by the far-right which holds that communism is a Jewish plot of world dominance.

Torba went on to post a lurid graphic of a serpent with multiple heads each of which were marked with the far-right’s most hated targets, including “Judaism,” “Islam,” “Liberalized Christianity,” “Atheism” and “Marxism.”

In response to overwhelming criticism of his remarks, Torba doubled down by defending his anti-Jewish views as being biblically sound.

“Sadly many Christians today are so afraid of being called a silly meaningless name by the world (bigot, antisemite) that they refuse to even remotely share or discuss the Gospel in their daily lives, let alone live it,” Torba wrote.

He went on to argue that the criticism against him was rooted in hatred of Jesus Christ, and posted a cartoon that mocks the term “Judeo-Christian.” Alluding to the crucifixion of Jesus, the cartoon portrays a nail labeled “Judeo” followed by a second drawing of a bleeding, upturned palm with a nail through it that was labeled “Christian.”

This is not the first time Torba publicly expressed his vile antisemitic views. In July 2021, he got upset that fellow antisemite Nick Fuentes was suspended from Twitter, and posted an antisemitic trope about Jews running the media on GAB’s Twitter, asking “Why do Jewish Supremacist special interest groups get to dictate who has a voice on the internet?”
