Jewish Congressional Candidate Target of anti-Semitic Attack: 'Fire Up the Oven!'

This is only one of many hate comments directed at Erin Schrode, 25, who says the attack was coordinated by a neo-Nazi, Trump-supporting website. There is 'more and more anti-Semitism this election cycle,' she notes.
Another message she received, quoted by Buzzfeed News, reads: “Get out of my country, kike. Get to Israel where you belong. That or the oven. Take your pick.”
Schrode, a Democrat running in California's second congressional district, said the online campaign was coordinated with the Daily Stromer, a neo-Nazi blog that has endorsed Donald Trump. She said her cell phone number, email address and social media handle were posted there by commentators.
"I woke up yesterday and today to hundreds of such vile messages," she said, noting she notified law enforcement agencies.
"This unspeakable vitriol goes far beyond anti-Semitism," she added. "It is not merely an attack on me or on one people, but rather an attack on any individual or group who is targeted because of faith, race, nationality, gender, ability, orientation or other arbitrary classification."
There is “more and more anti-Semitism this election cycle," Schrode told BuzzFeed News.
This is not the first time that Trump supporters are being accused of anti-Semitic online abuse. Trump supporters directed anti-Semitic vitriol recently against journalists who have been critical of the Republican candidate. Two of them were New York Times editor Jonathan Weisman and GQ writer Julia Ioffe.
Weisman, who called out anti-Semitism in the ranks of Trump supporters on Twitter, was sadly immediately vindicated, when he was inundated with a flood of bigoted tweets from purported fans of the presumptive Republican nominee.
Julia Ioffe, a regular contributor for the New York Times Magazine and a columnist at Foreign Policy, was bombarded by hateful tweets, phone calls and emails, seemingly from Trump supporters, over a profile of Trump's wife Melania that was published.
The online assault came after the Daily Stormer urged followers to “go ahead and send her [Ioffe] a tweet and let her know what you think of her dirty kike trickery.”Schermata 2016 06 05 alle 15.14.56
