'Proud Anti-Semite' bumper sticker a sign of the times, ADL says

FARMINGDALE, Long Island (WABC) --
A shocking display of hate on Long Island is just another example of the rise in anti-Semitic incidents nationwide, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

For most people, a bumper sticker reading "Proud Anti-Semite" would be disturbing. But one driver in Farmingdale had no problem proclaiming his stance, after a woman snapped a photo while driving her children home from a Girls Scout event on Route 110.

Police say are aware of who the driver is, but that there is often a fine line between hate speech and free speech.

The ADL reports a dramatic rise in anti-Semitic incidents this year, and New York state now leads the nation with 267 "events" in 2017. That is a whopping 96 percent increase over the 199 incidents reported all last year across the state.


Most of these "events" involve vandalism and harassment, and on Long Island, District Attorney Madeline Singas has launched an innovative new program in which suspects are counseled by Holocaust survivors.

1. What is happening to this country??

Growing up, I never heard anyone express prejudice against anyone - and I lived in a fairly diverse community.

7. These cockroaches are showing themselves in the light

all over the world, not just here. Scary , but there are advantages to being reminded of the abyss.

So they're imagining their time has come and they're free to be themselves. Uhuh. My guess is this guy's been learning that there are costs to this kind of freedom. How do they feel about this at work? Where he used to work? Or has he been hemorrhaging customers as they learn about hijm? We're still the nation who recently elected Obama by a large margin.

I'm just struck by the amazing thought that anyone could be a proud antisemite. If he really is. Weird.

8. Have you seen this?

"It's not about skin color for me. I'm more of an anti-Semite." Face to Face w/ American neo-Nazi

"I think there should be another genocide."

"Jews are a poison and need to be eradicated"

10. No. But 330 million people.

My husband's Jewish and I show him some of the stuff, but I won't be showing him this.

4. Really..... If Nazi folk would tattoo a swastika...

on their foreheads, just above their nose and in the mid area of both eyebrows, it would make the task of identifying them so much easier.

Wear your Fascist pride for the world to see.

6. I can't even

I grew up on LI--60 years ago, not too far from Farmingdale. This is not the LI I knew. The LI I knew was diverse. We all would have been appalled to see a bumper sticker like that. I'm still appalled.

"Proud Anti-Semite" should be shunned by all neighbors and coworkers and anyone else who comes into contact with them.
