Moms for Liberty, a conservative group advocating for parental rights, held a summit in Philadelphia this past weekend with speakers expressing antisemitic rhetoric.
North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson (R) defended the organization for including a quote from Adolf Hitler in a recent newsletter and said Hitler, Mao Zedong, and Joseph Stalin should be read more. Following his speech, many online debated whether the quote was taken out of context.
Author and conspiracy theorist James Lindsay argued that “woke countrymen” should be placed into re-education camps based on their political beliefs. The argument is reminiscent of Nazi Germany, where political opponents were sent to concentration camps.
Moms for Liberty is leading efforts to ban books in public schools, including the graphic novel adaptation of Anne Frank’s diary. The Southern Poverty Law Center recently designated Moms for Liberty as an extremist group.

Following the death of a teenager by French police, people began rioting in France to protest police brutality. Some protestors have included antisemitic and hateful rhetoric in their messaging.
Rioters vandalized countless public buildings, including the Memorial to the Martyrs of the Deportation, a Holocaust memorial in Nanterre. Rioters defaced the monument with the phrase “[w]e’re going to make a Shoah,” referring to recreating the Holocaust. They prevented journalists from coming near the graffiti because “the Jews control the media.” Rioters looted Jewish businesses and chanted antisemitic rhetoric in Sarcelles, known as “little Jerusalem.” The rioters also targeted public buildings and Arab-owned stores.
This past month, there have been antisemitic vandalism found in places such as Taunton, MA, Manchester, NJ, and Tucson, AZ. Antisemitism is not an issue unique to America, and we must combat all forms of hate worldwide.
