This Neo-Nazi Hit List Helps Jew-Hating Trump Trolls Find Their Targets

THIS IS THE JEWISH GROUP!

A website with the deceptively innocuous name of “Jews in Modern Society” lists the names, photos and professions of almost 400 Jews from academia, social-activism, the financial world and left-wing politics.

It’s basically a hit list for neo-Nazis or white supremacists.

The mission statement of the site complains that “Jews have had over 100 years of unrestricted immigration into the USA. They now permeate Academic, Activist, Financial and Corporate institutions to the detriment of Western Society.”

“Sadly enough, sites like this are all too common,” Mark Potok told the Forward. He is a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit fighting racism.

According to Potok, there has been a rise in anti-Semitism and racism over the last years that coincides with more and more of “this kind of demonizing material about individuals. Although these sites don’t explicitly call for violence against Jewish people, that is most certainly what they seem to be suggesting,” Potok added.
