How an antisemitic extremist in San Diego evaded hate crime prosecution

Robert Wilson, 40, a prominent member of the Goyim Defense League, was scheduled to testify in court for allegedly attacking his neighbor and hurling homophobic epithets. Interviews and court documents show Wilson has evaded punishment and is still promoting white supremacy on social media from Poland.

The criminal case was meant to be a high-profile win for the San Diego County District Attorney’s office, which prioritizes prosecuting those who commit hate crimes because there are more cases happening across the country.

When Wilson was first accused in December 2021, district attorney for San Diago, Summer Stephan stressed the significance of the case in a statement.

AD Summer Stephan, said that this case and these incidents “show that those who are driven by prejudice often carry their hate around to diverse groups, targeting our neighbors on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation, or other grounds.”

 

He also said that we will not accept hate crimes in our community because they pose a threat to all people. Anyone thinking about committing a hate crime should reconsider because they will be looked into, convicted, and held legally responsible.

According to the DA’s Office statement, there were 21 hate crime prosecutions in San Diego County last year, and there are expected to be 30 such charges in 2021.

The DA’s Office last year launched an online form and hotline for members of the public to report suspected hate crimes in response to hate crimes targeted towards Asians during the COVID-19 outbreak.

 

The Hate Crimes Hotline number is 619-515-8805, and the online reporting form is located here.

 

According to the Anti-Defamation League, which closely monitors the operations of the group, Wilson is one of the Goyim Defense League’s six main organizers and public characters.

The hate group uses a variety of techniques, such as street protests, flyer distribution, and internet trolling, to disseminate antisemitic, homophobic, and white supremacist ideas. They are well-known for peddling anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and putting up offensive banners on motorway overpasses.

 

When a banner bearing the slogan “Kanye is right about the Jews” was exhibited by the group in Los Angeles in October, it attracted considerable attention after being shared on Twitter.

The use of mobile banners on public property is a common example of the kind of extremist activity that is generally protected under the First Amendment. But it’s crucial to report this kind of behavior when it’s seen because it’s well recognized that those who engage in it want to terrorize, harass, persuade, radicalize, and recruit. If left unchecked, these bias-based actions may develop into more heinous ones.

According to the ADL, the Goyim Defense League is a small, shakily connected group of people with dozens of supporters and thousands of internet followers. 11 arrests or criminal prosecutions nationwide involve their members.

We want to remind you to report hate crimes to the ADL and your local police department by visiting www.adl.org/reportincident.
