Over the past year, a new front for hate has opened up across Canada and the United States, with drag performances and gender-affirming care providers becoming targets of harassment and threats. But the vitriol has an all-too-familiar tone — one that a well-known anti-hate organization says is a cause for concern. The U.S.-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is warning about a “convergence” of antisemitism and anti-LGBTQ hate. “Extremists and antisemitic conspiracy theorists have capitalized on the spread of dangerous and offensive falsehoods about LGBTQ+ people,” read a Jan. 24 post from the ADL’s Center on Extremism. Simultaneously, the organization wrote, anti-LGBTQ “fearmongering” is serving to boost anti-Jewish prejudices and conspiracy theories.
