Youngkin’s Commission to Combat Antisemitism Warns of Rising Incidents, Proposes Beefed-Up Law Enforcement, Education

A commission to combat antisemitism ordered by Governor Glenn Youngkin published its report Monday, describing a rising amount of antisemitic incidents nationally and in Virginia, and recommending 21 steps the governor and the General Assembly could take.

“In recent years, Virginia has had fewer incidents than neighbors in Maryland and DC, but the national trend of increasing antisemitic incidents has not spared Virginia, and some of the most high-profile antisemitic incidents in recent history have occurred in the Commonwealth. Generally, while the Commonwealth has not seen antisemitic assaults take place since 2018, there has been an increased frequency of antisemitic harassment and antisemitic vandalism at levels which have remained constant from 2018 to 2021,” the report states.

The group is now targeting West’s partnership with Adidas, over controversial remarks the rapper made about slavery. West referred to slavery as a “choice” in a Tuesday interview with TMZ. West was talking about black people being “mentally enslaved,” he later claimed. Sleeping Giants is now publicly pressuring Adidas to revisit their partnership with West to sell his shoe brand, Yeezy, as a result of his comments, which came days after he expressed his support for President Donald Trump and conservative activist Candace Owens.
