The Roots and Resurgence of Anti-Semitism

Every major organization that tracks hate crimes and acts of anti-Semitic violence has documented an alarming spike in the numbers beginning in 2016. Shockingly, many of these hate groups are espousing age-old anti-Semitic nonsense and conspiracies, some of which have been around for 2,000 years. It behooves us, then, to explore the historic, philosophical, ideological, and pseudo-scientific basis of anti-Semitism, its impacts on Nazi Germany and recent hate groups, and today's resurgence.
