Far right media activist Laura Loomer this morning, she has been the target of vicious anti-Semitic posts on social media since Forward published a profile of her Friday morning.

“Synagogue of Satan. You are fake Jews,” wrote @BrydensFunny.

“Go back to Israel you filthy kike,” wrote “Leah Goldstein.” (Twitter handle: @JewessGoyim.)

“Goldstein? You sound like a member of the tribe to me! Mashugana!” Loomer tweeted in response.

Though she tries to maintain a sense of humor about it online, Loomer acknowledges that dealing with the flood of anti-Semitic comments and imagery on Twitter is “really hard to deal with.”

“It’s insane,” Loomer wrote in a text Friday.
