What is fueling Antisemitism?

Far-right extremists who have taken over the GOP rely on fear and division to maintain power. They use antisemitism to fuel that fear and division, putting Jews and our neighbors in danger. The danger is real: Donald Trump’s presidency coincided with an uptick in hate crimes and violence, including the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history.

It isn’t just Trump. As 61% of American Jews know, antisemitism is a problem in the Republican Party. To fight it, we have to understand how antisemitism — along with racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia — is part of the machinery of division and fear, and learn to recognize when right-wing extremists use that machine for political and material gain.
