In front of the Auschwitz death camp in Poland, where 1.1 million Jews perished, Jon Minadeo was detained while holding a demonstration against Jews.
Goyim Defense League’s neo-Nazi leader is detained in Poland
According to his own post on the conservative social media site Gab on September 4th, Jon Minadeo II, the man who for several years has made Petaluma his base for producing and disseminating antisemitic literature, has been detained in Poland for protesting against Jews at the gates of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp.
For making a hateful remark about Auschwitz, I was handcuffed and imprisoned in Poland today, Minadeo said. “I was just released tonight with a fine and a temporary confiscation of my computer and chains. The good life! Jews, you can’t hold me back!”
The three sets of parenthesis surrounding “Hate Speech” are a trick used by bigots to target Jews online that was later appropriated by adherents of the faith as a sign of defiance. In some of Minadeo’s most recent posts, you can see a swastika hanging from one of his necklaces.
The Jewish News of Northern California’s J publication broke the news of his arrest first. On the outskirts of the Polish city of Oswiecim, Auschwitz, the busiest of the Nazi regime’s death camps, is situated. Between 1940 and 1944, the Nazis there are thought to have killed 1.1 million Jews, including 200,000 children.
A picture of Minadeo’s prank at the concentration camp had also been posted on his website. He’s seen grinning with a companion who the Anti-Defamation League has identified as Robert Wilson in the picture. Each is holding a handmade sign while wearing casual clothing.
Wilson says “Shoah the ADL”; Jews frequently use this phrase to refer to the Holocaust. Shoah is a translation of the Hebrew term for “catastrophe.” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt is the target of Minadeo’s vulgar sign.
The Press Democrat initially reported on Minadeo in late February, when anti-Semitic flyers with the logo of GoyimTV, Minadeo’s media company, were plastered all over a Napa area. The occurrence was connected to earlier, comparable incidents in the Bay Area. Since then, more have occurred, including one in Windsor three months ago.
It is difficult to tell whether Minadeo is personally involved with any given distribution because the hand sheets, which are replete with tropes and misinformation, are readily available for download and printing on the internet.
When The Press Democrat published a profile of Minadeo earlier this year, the attention-seeking provocateur was at a low point in his activity. But since then, he has stepped up his anti-Semitic rhetoric once more, both on his GoyimTV streaming channel and during road trips where he gathers a small band of confederates to put up anti-Semitic banners or make fun of Jews at synagogues and Jewish institutions.
In a recent video that he shared, Minadeo followed an immigrant through the Polish streets, insulting him and calling him a “invader.” Various people, most of whom disagreed with the hate message, then uploaded his version on other platforms.
One of them garnered hundreds of comments on Reddit criticizing Minadeo and making fun of the notion that a neo-Nazi would be upset over someone invading Poland.
According to a source who is familiar with Minadeo and his fiancée, they have relocated to Florida.
Although he may not now dwell in the neighborhood, Jamie Bloom, president of the board of directors of the B’Nai Israel Jewish Center in Petaluma, noted that his acts and the rise in antisemitic activity by like-minded individuals severely alarm him.
Law enforcement officials in the United States often assert that there is nothing they can do until a criminal overtly threatens a religious or ethnic group, in contrast to several European nations that have strict prohibitions against Nazi propaganda.
Police Chief Mike Raasch published a statement on Facebook following the distribution of the anti-Semitic posters in Windsor that included the following: “These flyers are contrary to all that Windsor stands for. We are a town filled with love, respect, and inclusivity. Hatred is not acceptable here.”
However, Raasch also stated that “no crime has been committed, notwithstanding the unsettling tone of the leaflets.”
