Residents of Brentwood, California received antisemitic fliers accusing Disney’s top executives of being Jewish and grooming children for sexual abuse.
“Every single aspect of Disney child grooming is Jewish,” the flier reads. The flier had two rainbow-colored symbols: a Jewish Star of David and a Satanic inverted pentagram. It also included the names, job positions, and pictures of 10 Disney executives, each with a blue Star of David printed on their foreheads.
“Protect your children,” the flier said repeatedly in red, all-capital letters. The fliers were likely inspired by Disney’s opposition to Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in late March. DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw said anyone who opposes the law supports pedophilia.
It’s unclear if the Disney executives shown on the flier are all actually Jewish.
Two similarly designed fliers found elsewhere in Brentwood accused President Joe Biden of appointing Jews to top government positions and blamed Jews for “the COVID agenda.” Images from all three fliers were shared on Twitter by progressive activist Shannon Watts.
The fliers push a long-held antisemitic trope that secret groups of powerful Jews are to blame for society’s problems, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said.
Did you know nearly two-thirds of US young adults are unaware that 6 millions Jews were killed in the Holocaust, or they believe the Holocaust was a myth or was exaggerated: https://t.co/zpslg4jY9A pic.twitter.com/oIlX4PzNpn

The fliers also contained a URL for Goyim TV, an antisemitic video-sharing website reportedly founded by Jon Minadeo Jr.. Minadeo also founded the so-called Goyim Defense League. (Goyim is a term for non-Jewish people.)
In 2020, Minadeo and members of his group displayed a banner on a Los Angeles highway overpass reading, “Honk if you know the Jews want a race war.” He was arrested in Poland in September for having led an antisemitic protest outside of Auschwitz, the infamous Nazi death camp.
“We must continue exposing the Jewish anti-white propaganda! That for decades has conditioned our people to be slaves for the Jews,” Minadeo wrote on the far-right “free speech” website Gab while sharing photos from his protest.
Last year, antisemitic attacks in the U.S. reached an all-time high, the ADL reported. Public antisemitism online has recently increased following anti-Jewish statements made by Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West. After Ye’s statements, the Goyim Defense League hung a banner over a Los Angeles highway that declared, “Honk if you know Kanye is right about the Jews.”
