White supremacist literature on the rise in NJ

By Nikita Biryukov, February 12 2020 11:57 am

The distribution of white-supremacist propaganda more than tripled in New Jersey last year, according to analysis by the Anti-Defamation League.

The ADL reported 143 such incidents in 2019, up sharply from the 41 seen in 2018.

“As our new report shows, white supremacists have only grown more brazen over the past year,” said Shira Goodman, ADL Philadelphia Regional Director. “Bigots see propaganda campaigns as a cheap and easy way to gain notoriety and spread their vile message. It is incumbent upon all New Jersians to push back against this rising tide of hate.”

Last year’s numbers mean New Jersey had the fifth-highest rate of such bias incidents.

Nationally, the number of racist literature distributions rose from 1,214 in 2018 to 2,713 in 2019.

Over the past several years, New Jersey has seen an increasing number of bias incidents, including a mass shooting at a kosher grocer in Jersey City and instances of Nazi graffiti.

“Hate and intolerance have no place in our community, in our state, or in our country,” Rep. Josh Gottheimer said. “We are a nation founded on the core value that all religions, ethnicities and people of all backgrounds are welcomed. We must continue to fight back against and all forms of hate and bigotry.”

One thought on “White supremacist literature on the rise in NJ

  1. The “hate Whitey” movement coupled with massive third world immigration can be thanked for this. Whites are waking up and seeing the writing (not on the wall, but) shoved in their faces on a daily basis are starting to get the point that we’re being seen as a hated people hearing others demand our extermination.

    So what did you really expect Whites to do, just lay down and die??
