Republicans are accusing billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros of being behind the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump. Soros is commonly used as a dog whistle for antisemitic conspiracy theories of Jewish control, dual loyalty, and other hateful ideas.
Many are claiming that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who convened the grand jury investigating Trump, is acting on Soros' behalf because of previous campaign contributions. While Soros donated $1 million to Color of Change PAC, which supported Bragg’s campaign, the contribution was not earmarked for Bragg.
Despite this, many continue to promote the supposed connection between the two with former President Trump going as far as to call Bragg a “Soros backed animal.” Trump also called the District Attorney's office "the Gestapo", a statement that distorts the Holocaust.

Neo-Nazis protested and performed Nazi salutes against transgender rights activists last weekend in Victoria, Australia in front of the Parliament building. This protest was similar to another protest last week in Wadsworth, Ohio when neo-Nazis shouted pro-Hitler chants and other hateful remarks at a Drag Queen Story Hour. In response to this overt display of hate, Daniel Andrews, the premier of Victoria, announced his government would work towards banning the Nazi salute.
Many people condemned these hateful protests online and blamed Victoria’s government for allowing and protecting Nazi salutes.
ADL 2022 Audit of Antisemitic Incidents
The number of antisemitic incidents hit an all-time high in 2022, according to the ADL annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents. The ADL recorded a total of 3,697 antisemitic incidents in 2022, a 36% increase from 2021 and the third time in the past five years that the year-end number has been the highest ever recorded. The audit details how the dramatic increase in antisemitic incidents last year cannot be attributed to one ideology or a particular event. The significant findings of the report include:
Incidents of antisemitic harassment increased by 29% in 2022 to 2,298 incidents.
Antisemitic vandalism increased by 51% to 1,288 incidents.
Assaults increased by 26% to 111 incidents.
Significant surges in antisemitic incidents were also recorded in K-12 schools (49%), and college campuses (41%).
There were 589 incidents that targeted Jewish institutions, including synagogues, Jewish community centers, and Jewish schools. The number of bomb threats rose sharply from eight in 2021 to 91 last year.
Antisemitic incidents occurred in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, with the highest numbers recorded in New York (580), California (518), and New Jersey (408).
Last year was the first in which the ADL recorded multiple months that saw over 300 incidents. The threshold was eclipsed eight times, with the highest number of incidents recorded in November (394), October (347), and May (345).
