Meet Jacob Jaeger

Brooklyn Electrician and Identity Evropa Member

This article was contributed by New York City Antifa.

Meet Jacob Jaegar. He's a electrician at Di Russo Electric Contracting in Flushing, Queens, and lives in Brooklyn with his girlfriend, Samantha Zimmerman, and their toddler son.

Jacob is also an active member of Identity Evropa, a nationalist group that popularized the slogan "You will not replace us." According to the Anti-Defamation League, the slogan "reflects the primary white supremacist worldview that unless immediate action is taken, the white race is doomed to extinction by an alleged 'rising tide of color' purportedly controlled and manipulated by Jews."

Jacob's Facebook page is littered comments expressing these same fears.

In this screenshot, he complains about a woman of color modeling, saying "We need to take this country back to pre-1965 when we had a Pan-European Nation." ("Pre-1965" and "pan-European nation" are popular dogwhistles for white nationalists.)

As an active member of Identity Evropa, he attends events with them and flyers white nationalist propaganda around the city.

Here, Jacob Jaeger is seen attending the June 2017 March Against Sharia on June 10, 2017, in New York CIty, alongside other members of Identity Evropa.

In the photo above, Jacob Jaeger is seen attending the Identity Evropa protest outside the Mexican consulate in New York City in July 2018.

This photo of a then-unidentified member of Identity Evropa plastering the train with white nationalist flyers was taken on the NYC subway by concerned straphangers. The photographer noted that Jacob looked "scared" when he was noticed.

And what's he scared of?

Being exposed, of course, and facing the consequences of his hate.

Additionally, as an electrician in New York City, he is a member of of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union No. 3.

In the photo above, his union looks great, but there's no room for hate in our unions. You can contact the IBEW 3 at their offices in Flushing, Queens, by calling (718) 591-4000, or via their Facebook or Twitter accounts.
