U.S. white supremacist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes called for a “holy war” against Jews in remarks at an “America First” rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Sunday.
Quoting lines from the Talmud, the sacred Jewish text from which antisemites often cherry-pick out-of-context excerpts to incite hatred of Jews, the 24-year-old Fuentes said, “‘If a gentile hits a Jew, he must be killed. But when a Jew murders a gentile, there will be no death penalty.’ … This is the last part, and this is my favorite part: ‘Jews may use lies to circumvent the gentiles.’ … Do you think it might be a problem that the people that are running your banks, that are making the movies your children watch … do you think it’s a problem that they believe all Christians must die? It’s a big problem. It’s a huge problem.”
“We live in a Christian world, we need to have Christian leaders,” he added.
“We’re in a holy war,” Fuentes declared, “and I will tell you this: Because we’re willing to die in the holy war, we will make them die in the holy war. And they will go down. We have God on our side, and they will go down with their Satanic master. They have no future in America. The enemies of Christ have no future in this world.”
At last night’s America First rally, founder Nick Fuentes called for a holy war against the Jews, promising that he and his followers would “make them die.”

Earlier this year, a study published by the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) and the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI) demonstrated that Gen Z, neo-Nazi “Groypers,” led by Fuentes, had anticipated, planned for, and capitalized on Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter to popularize and disseminate hateful content, doing so with the expectation that Musk would provide a more hospitable platform for their brand of extremism.
