The Canadian Jewish Defence League, or the JDL, has had their Facebook page pulled down and one of their founding members banned from Facebook because the social media giant says their logo constitutes hate speech.
Who is Canadian JDL? They fight antisemitism. That’s pretty much it.
They aren’t radicals. They’re sort of right wing, but not purposefully. They’re right wing because antisemitism is so often mainstream and tolerated on the political Left.
And what about that hateful logo? It’s a raised fist, you know, the universal image of resistance. And it will look really familiar to you.
