National Day of Hate trending on Twitter
On Saturday, neo-Nazi and white supremacist organisations in the United States intend to stage a “national day of hatred” against Jews, while Jewish organisations call for vigilance and police beef up security.To “reveal the international clique of parasitic vermin that infest our country today,” the hate groups have urged their followers to hand out antisemitic stickers, pamphlets, and banners on this day.A statement attributed to the hate groups said, “Make your voices heard loud and clear, that the one genuine enemy of the American people is the Jew.”The New York Police Department has stated that, out of “an excess of caution,” it will enhance patrols outside places of worship tomorrow and asks New Yorkers to “be cautious.”
ADL on National day of Hate
The NYPD has reassured the public that no specific targets have been identified despite the ambiguous threats.The Jewish community has been warned to be attentive and watchful throughout the weekend by the Chicago police department, which has also issued a warning regarding the day.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organisation that monitors anti-Semitism, claimed that it has been keeping an eye on the situation and that some extreme groups have communicated and encouraged plans for the day.Aside from the distribution of antisemitic flyers, Oren Segal, vice president of the ADL’s Center on Extremism, predicted that there would also be modest demonstrations and damage.
According to Mr. Segal National Day of hate
The hate groups, according to Mr. Segal, were tiny in number but received a lot of media coverage for their “abhorrent behaviour.”The group urged people to report suspicious activity to law enforcement and to stay away from approaching campaign participants.Another Jewish security organisation, the Secure Community Network (SCN), claimed that since early January, when an unknown neo-Nazi group called for “a day of MAJOR ANTISEMITIC ACTION” on the messaging platform Telegram, it has been tracking planned extremist activities for the day.
Goyim Defense League, a well-known white nationalist and anti-Semitic hate group, has promoted the day on social media.The day of hatred on Saturday is unlikely to have an impact on the UK, but a CST representative told the JC: We are aware of it, and we’ll be watching to see if any UK far-right networks decide to air it. But given past performance, any impact here is probably going to be much smaller than in the US.
According to experts on National Day
According to experts, white supremacist organisations that had previously mostly functioned online and in the shadows now hold rallies and marches in public places.During Kanye West’s well-publicized fall from grace last year as a result of a succession of outbursts and tirades against Jews in public, numerous hate organisations defended the troubled hip-hop superstar.
