Like other forms of race-based hatred, antisemitism is, in part, an ideology that can be weaponized to a variety of ends. As such, antisemitism persists across the political spectrum, across national borders, across age, across education levels, and other demographic markers.
This webinar considered key questions about how antisemitism appears in different forms. Why is antisemitism often left out of social justice movements that confront racisim and white supremacy? Why are Jews more often viewed as allies rather than as a fellow marginalized group also threatened by white supremacy? Why are Jews perceived as puppet masters of the “Great Replacement” theory and why are so many mass shootings carried out by those who ascribe to such conspiracy theories, even when not targeting Jews? In this webinar, panelists discussed how antisemitism manifests differently on the political left and right, as well as when antisemitism and racism intersect and diverge.
