The American Jewish Congress is pleased to announce the release of a special report entitled “Capitol Storming: Neo-Nazi, QAnon and Antisemitic Online Chatter.” This report is part of an American Jewish Congress initiative to combat domestic terrorism, especially that which stems from white supremacist activity and Antisemitic extremism.
This report provides in-depth analysis of the online chatter that took place in the immediate aftermath of the storming of the Capitol by far-right extremists on January 6th. Specifically, an analysis conducted after the attack of 24,000 right-wing Twitter accounts showed that 6% of these users engaged in insurrectionist discussion and that 40% of them were associated with the Antisemitic QAnon movement.
As explained in the report, Antisemitism was pervasive throughout both the in-person and online activity surrounding the attack. The report provides multiple specific examples of such Antisemitic activity, which was a feature, not a bug, of the day’s violence.
