A white supremacist went on a murderous killing spree at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket on Saturday, killing 10 and wounding many others in what authorities said was “racially motived violent extremism.”
The suspect, who was taken into custody, was identified as Payton Gendron, of Conklin, New York.
Prior to the mass shooting, Gendron posted an online screed railing about his hatred of immigrants and minorities, including Jews. And in one section of his manifesto, Gendron posted specifically made mention of Jews in Lakewood, Toms River, and other areas.
“Hasidic activities in Brooklyn, in Jersey City, in New York ex-burb Bloomingburg and Lakewood and Toms River, New Jersey are deplorable, and attempts by local communities to fight back are regularly met with claims that the locals are anti-Semitic,” he wrote in his manifesto.
Gendron, a verified white supremacist, went on to use the same claims being made by some locals against Jewish communities in Lakewood, Toms River, and beyond.
The rant by the white supremacist mass murderer will not be published here as they are sickening, but they are eerily similar to the claims made online and at public meetings by residents in communities surrounding Lakewood which paint all Jews as liars, thieves, and seeking to destroy communities.
In another section of his manifesto, Gendron went after all Jews, writing: “I wish ALL Jews to HELL! Go back to hell where you came from DEMON!”
