Jew Hater Paul Nehlen Makes List Of His Jewish Foes On Twitter

Following a spate of press reports highlighting his connections to the white nationalist “alt-right” and accusations of anti-Semitism, congressional hopeful Paul Nehlen lashed out online against Twitter users who he says have attacked him — nearly all of them Jews.

“I’ve compiled a list of ‘verified’ Twitter users who have attacked me in just the last month alone for my #AmericaFirst positions. Of those 81 people, 74 are Jews, while only 7 are non-Jews,” he wrote.

Nehlen’s list includes political commentator Ben Shapiro; CNN correspondent Jake Tapper; Chabad social media editor Mordechai Lightstone; Tablet Magazine journalist Yair Rosenberg and Forward editor-in-chief Jane Eisner, among many other names.

A businessman with little political experience, Nehlen has piggybacked on the online “alt-right” movement, hoping to make a name for himself amid the online culture wars.
