A rogues’ gallery of antisemites in the USA

It seems the time is ripe for another listing of the most active antisemites in our country now, when antisemitism is again raising its ugly head in many parts of the world. So here goes — the folks we should all be most aware of, recognizing their names i–f and when we see them publicized. These below were recently released by StopAntisemitism.org:

Timothy Elpadaro Thedford is better known as Jay Electronica, a hip-hop “artist” and Grammy award nominee from New Orleans who enthusiastically follows Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam. In March of last year, he released an album with “Synagogue of Satan” lyrics and other songs invoking the Rothschilds — yet another continuing swipe at a wealthy Jewish family long accused of financial conspiracy and suspected desires for world domination. He calls Blacks “the true Children of Israel.”

Alexandra Tohme uses social media for digital marketing of antisemitism as well as products she sells. She operates largely in the Middle East, and when called out on Twitter for using the word “kike,” her response was this reference to Israel: “I live next to Kikestan. What do you want me to do?” When Israel and the United Arab Emirates signed a peace agreement involving joint economic efforts, she verbally attacked “wealthy miserly greedy Jews…in Dubai for business deals.”

Rasha Anayah is a graduate student/teaching assistant at Johns Hopkins University, which has opened an investigation into her social media posts targeting Jewish and Israeli students. In a rigged “ethical dilemma” poll, she managed to show that almost 80% of its takers would support failing Zionist students on exams simply because of their Jewish affiliation. Several faculty members signed a letter to the university administration stating that “This is not an isolated incident, but rather part of an emerging pattern.”

Rima Najjar defends violence against Jews, spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories and comparing Jews to Nazis. She calls massacres of Jews in synagogues “Acts of desperation against intolerable and prolonged oppression,” and maintains that Hillel is “Israel’s agent on Jewish college campuses.” She is an organizer of USACBI, which coordinates the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement. 

Timothy Louis Hale-Cusanelli is a white supremacist and Nazi sympathizer from New Jersey who took part in the D.C. riot in January; the FBI filed five Federal charges against him after he admitted posting “horrific, anti-Semitic and bigoted videos” vilifying all Jewish people on his YouTube channel. He openly supports all those who claim to be fomenting a second Civil War; authorities found copies of Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” plus other neo-Nazi “literature” in his apartment.

Other active antisemites were identified among the Capitol Hill rioters. Tim Gionet, a neo-Nazi, claims that “Jews run the media,” and “Hitler did nothing wrong.” Twitter banned him permanently after he posted an image of a Jewish woman inside a gas chamber oven…Brian James founded a skinhead group, belonged to the Indiana chapter of KKK, and almost stomped to death a man at a party who refused to give the Nazi “Sieg Heil” salute…Matthew Heimbach founded a white nationalist movement for high school and college students, was a planner of the 2017 “Unite the Right” and has been quoted: “Jews will not replace us… We are all comrades in the struggle against international Jewry and the Zionist State.” 

The names above are just the tip of our own country’s rising antisemitic iceberg.
