White Supremacists Are Tricking Celebrities Into Recording Anti-Semitic Videos
The year 2018 has repeatedly proven that we can’t have nice things. Our latest example arrives courtesy of Cameo, an app in which you can pay celebrities (mainly of the C- through E-list variety) to create a personalized video message. Now, much like every other place on the internet, the lovely app you once used to have Bethenny Frankel wish your cousin happy birthday has been … drumroll please … co-opted by white nationalists.
According to a piece in BuzzFeed news, an anti-Semitic group called the GDL or “Goyim Defense League” has been using the app to pay celebrities to deliver messages that employ coded anti-Semitic language, in hopes that the videos will go viral. Targeted personalities include ex–Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, comedian Andy Dick, and rapper Soulja Boy.
“Brett Favre here with a shoutout to the Handsome Truth and the GDL boys,” Favre says in his Cameo video, according to BuzzFeed. “You guys are patriots in my eyes. So keep waking them up and don’t let the small get you down. Keep fighting, too, and don’t ever forget the USS Liberty and the men and women who died on that day. God bless and take care.”
BuzzFeed has a good breakdown of the many anti-Semitic dog-whistles that are baked into the passage; for example, “small” is a code word for small hats, meaning yarmulkes, and USS Liberty is a dog-whistle for a popular anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.- Source
