Shaun King

Shaun King is a central figure in the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Throughout his history as a racial justice activist, King has made numerous controversial antisemitic and anti-American statements.

He compared America’s early leaders to Nazis and openly defended well-known antisemites such as Linda Sarsour, Louis Farrakhan, and our 2019 Antisemite of the Year – Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

In 2017, King referred to Linda Sarsour as “one of the most effective, skilled, passionate organizers in the world”. Just a short time later, Sarsour was kicked out of the Women’s March movement over her antisemitism. In March 2020, King encouraged people to buy Sarsour’s new book calling it a “MUST READ”, despite her well-known antisemitic and hateful opinions of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.

King argued that his support of notorious antisemite Louis Farrakhan has “nothing to do with antisemitism” and referred to him as a “lifesaver”. When asked to condemn Farrakhan’s bigotry, King refused.

King also frequently praises and defends Jew-hating Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. In 2019, after Omar used an antisemitic trope claiming that U.S. leaders were paid by an Israeli lobby group, King stated that Democrats should feel “shame” for not defending Omar and called the attack on her “bigoted and dangerous”. A few months later, he praised Omar, tweeting she was a person “for hope and change”.

This week, as Israel is under a vicious attack by Hamas, Shaun King took to social media attempting to justify Palestinian violence and spreading falsehood to millions of his followers by implying that Israel is the aggressor and denying her legitimate right to defend herself.

Shaun King maybe sees himself as a social justice warrior but in fact, he’s a bigoted antisemite who vilifies Jews and openly supports antisemitism and violence against Jews.

Like many Jew-haters, he has no interest in Palestinian rights or justice; his ultimate goal is to promote hatred of the Jewish people and see the destruction of their nation.
