A man was charged with bias intimidation, terroristic threats, simple assault, criminal mischief and harassment after going on a profane, anti-Semitic tirade in Lakewood, New Jersey, on Sept. 21 (video below).

The man, identified as Elijah Chandler, went on a verbal tirade against people who appeared to be Orthodox Jews, after a three-vehicle crash, reports

Chandler is seen hitting a car and heard yelling, "Go back to your country," as well as using various swearwords that were edited out of the video.

Detective Lt. Gregory Staffordsmith said the first officer at the scene believed that Chandler "had assaulted the driver of one of the other vehicles involved," reports Asbury Park Press.

"Further investigation revealed that Chandler was harassing and trying to intimidate those involved as well as bystanders by yelling bias statements and threatening to physically harm them," Staffordsmith added.

Staffordsmith said that "no one was injured to my knowledge."

Over in Pennsylvania, a disturbing anti-Semitic display recently went up at the Bloomsbury Fair that featured a "Donald Trump -- Make America Great Again" flag next to a Hitler Youth flag. notes that some of the responses on Facebook included:

...a friend of mine from high school, just shared this image. This picture was taken at the Bloomsburg Fair in Bloomsburg, PA, the next town over from where we grew up. Yes, those are nazi flags for sale, proudly displayed next to a Trump banner.

I am so angry I'm in tears. This is happening in our backyard. That flag stands for hatred and genocide. This is what Donald Trump is doing to America, this is the kind of deplorable person his campaign has empowered. If you cannot see that, you are part of the problem.

The Bloomsburg Fair organizers said in a Facebook posting:

We were initially unaware of the flag and other merchandise being displayed by a vendor on our fairgrounds. Most posts were made after midnight, and as soon as we were made aware of it early this morning, we took the appropriate action with the vendor to remove those items.

Unfortunately, we have over 1200 vendors on our fairgrounds and it’s difficult to monitor each one individually. Whenever someone brings something like this to our attention, we always discuss it with the vendor and take any steps to maintain a family-fun atmosphere at our fair.
