(October 25, 2019 / JNS) StopAntisemitism.org is accepting nominations for the world’s first “Antisemite of the Year Award.” The watchdog group is calling on the public to select the most notoriously vile anti-Semites who not only spread hatred, but also incite violence against the Jewish people.
StopAntisemitism.org is a leading organization focused on exposing anti-Semites from the radical right, radical left and among religious extremists, on holding them accountable and on creating consequences for their anti-Semitic actions.
To inform the public about Jew-haters, every Sunday the watchdog group features an “Antisemite of the Week” on its website and social-media platforms, engaging more than 500,000 followers regularly. Past spotlights include Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), BDS activist Ariel Gold, American neo-Nazi David Duke and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
The campaign will keep known anti-Semites on the public’s radar and unmask new offenders.
Nominations for the award will be accepted through Nov. 14 on the organization’s website. Finalists will be revealed on Nov. 21.
A public voting period will take place through Dec. 21 to decide which bigot deserves the shameful title. Nominators and voters will also have the chance to win one of 10 $180 Amazon gift cards.
“It’s all about naming and shaming,” says StopAntisemitsm.org’s national director Liora Rez. “There are far too many anti-Semites promoting Jew-hatred without any consequences. It’s time to stop this racism and discrimination.”
The 2019 “Antisemite of the Year” will be announced on Dec. 30.
