Please read the following message from Daniel Hernandez, Vice Chair at A Wider Bridge:
Last month, I was honored to visit with Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff — and I posed with him with the amazing Jewish Inclusive Pride Flag — the same flag I carried at Jerusalem Pride.
Then a far-right extremist on X, formerly known as Twitter, shared the photo.
What followed was a torrent of antisemitic and homophobic abuse, with thousands of shares and comments.
As of this moment, the post has been viewed over 1,900,000 times. Already over 14,000 people have clicked the heart button to “like” the post.
Here are just a few of the replies, many of which are so vile that I can’t share them here.
I need you to help me fight back.
The truth is that this isn’t an attack on me — it’s an attack on all of us. I want you to join me and take a stand against hate — will you help us raise funds for our fight against antisemitism and LGBTQphobia?
Your donation will help us expand the reach of the Jewish Inclusive Pride flag to more locations.
Your donation will support our community events and aid those in need, both online and offline.
Your donation will support our efforts in exposing the interconnectedness between antisemitism and LGBTQphobia.
A Wider Bridge stands against hate and stands against antisemitism, and LGBTQphobia in all its forms. They have my back. And they have your back, too.
