Rep. Maloney Condemns Recent Spike in Antisemitism

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), author of the Never Again Education Act, on May 25 released the following statement condemning the recent spike in antisemitism in New York, the country, and around the world:

“The recent spate of antisemitism online and here in New York, across the country, and around the world is disturbing and cannot be tolerated. I am extremely concerned that many American Jews have felt the need to hide their identity to stay safe. It’s up to all of us to stop and stand up to antisemitism wherever and whenever we see it. 

“Beyond bringing those committing these attacks to justice, we need to stop antisemitism before it starts. A recent analysis of Twitter posts conducted by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) ‘showed more than 17,000 tweets which used variations of the phrase, ‘Hitler was right’ between May 7 and May 14, 2021.’

“Hateful rhetoric and bigotry such as this is why I authored and passed the Never Again Education Act to give educators the tools they need to teach about the Holocaust and the dangers of antisemitism and hate. Children are not born with hate in their hearts, it is up to us to make sure they never learn it.”
