Grab-bag of enemies

Yesterday it was neo-Nazis in Seattle:

Neo-Nazis affiliated with the anti-Semitic Daily Stormer Book Club plastered racist fliers on three Seattle synagogues.

The fliers were posted over the weekend by a masked man and featured an illustration of Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts biting an arm marked America, according to

The flier read “Send them back” and “deport the commie brown infestation.” The first phrase echoes recent language from President Donald Trump, who called on the freshman lawmakers, known as “The Squad,” to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”

I think the neo-Nazis are confused. What do synagogues have to do with Tlaib, Omar, Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley? Two are Muslim and none are Jewish.

David Goldstein tweeted:

Yesterday, the 3 synagogues in my Southeast Seattle neighborhood were plastered with racist, Trumpist, anti-Semitic flyers touting the Nazi website, Daily Stormer. Actual Nazis are promoting themselves using Trump’s own language. But, you know, both sides!


I’m not really seeing the anti-Semitism though, aside from the vandalism of posting them on synagogues. But that’s probably too literal – I’m sure the Stormers don’t trouble themselves over nice distinctions of that kind. Thurr all commie brown MusloJews from Mexico, right?
