Man Who Distributed Anti-Semitic Materials Identified, Arrested, and Cited

Jeffrey Allen Kidder (57) of Kenosha

A Kenosha man with ties to California and Indiana was arrested after a months-long investigation into anti-Semitic flyers being distributed around the Kenosha area. The reports began in December of 2021. The flyers attacked Jewish people and were distributed in baggies with pebbles in them, on windshields, driveways, and walkways. The Kenosha Police Department consulted with the Kenosha District Attorney’s office and it was decided that the flyers themselves, although disturbing, are protected under the first amendment.

Instead, Kidder was cited under Kenosha’s non-criminal ordinance 11.02U which states:

Littering. Throw, place or deposit any paper, glass, bottle, cans, containers, grass clippings, rubbish, waste, filth or other debris upon private property without consent of the owner or occupant, or upon the streets, alleys, highways, sidewalks, parks, or beaches, or into any pond, stream, river or lake.

Defense

KCE spoke to a criminal defense attorney who told us that although Kidder’s alleged actions may have violated the letter of the law, he might have an affirmative defense. For example, politicians, lawn-care companies, weed services, and a plethora of other people are constantly distributing flyers on mailboxes, doors, and windshields in the City of Kenosha. Bidder could argue selective prosecution. It would however, switch the burden to the defendant, when normally the City has the burden. The burden in Municipal court, however is lower. The City prosecutor need only show the defendant is guilty by a preponderance of the evidence, meaning, more likely than not – not beyond a reasonable doubt, like in criminal trials.

Kidder appears to have a past criminal history out of California and according to Sheriff’s department records, may be a convicted felon. He was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm in 2016, but the charge was later dropped.

Bidder received 23 citations in total and if convicted of all counts, could be facing a fine of more than $4,300.

That’s exactly what David Wilk tried to do in an oral/written ruling from this past Monday. Lets begin with Judge WIlk’s beginning. Wilke attended Hamline University School

  1. What a pathetic, hate-filled person. If nothing else, the fines might convince him to move somewhere else

    1. PLEASE MR. OR MRS. ANONYMOUS, WOULD YOU KINDLY POINT OUT WHAT MY MATERIALS CONTAIN THAT COULD BE CONSTRUED AS HATE? YOU WILL FIND NOTHING OF THE KIND. HOWEVER, SINCE YOU ARE SO CONCERNED WITH “HATE”, WHY DONT WE DISCUSS HATE? THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS HATE SPEECH IN THIS COUNTRY. WHY DONT YOU LOOK UP “LOXISM”? THAT MY DEAR, IS REAL HATE. IT IS THE HATE THAT JEWS HAVE FOR ALL NON JEWS. CAN THERE BE JUSTICE WITHOUT HATE OF INJUSTICE? CAN THERE BE PEACE IF WE DO NOT HATE WAR? YOU WISH I WOULD MOVE? YOU THINK I WILL PAY ONE SHECKLE? PULL YOUR HEAD FROM YOUR POSTERIOR, WAKE UP. IT’S THE JEWS STUPID. NEITHER YOU NOR I CAN MOVE FROM UNDER THEIR SATANIC INFLUENCE. THE JEWS WANT YOU & ALL GOYIM (NON-JEWS) DEAD OR ENSLAVED. WHAT’S PATHETIC IS SOMEONE WHO DEFENDS THE THE JEWS. THEY KILLED CHRIST, THEY HAVE BEEN EXPELLED FROM 109 COUNTRIES OVER 1,050 TIMES. THEY PRINT THE MONEY. I LOVE YOU, THE JEWS DONT. GOD BLESS.

  2. Some have a much better understanding of the world in which they live and why it is the way it is. The surface level, average American that has recieved the warm fuzzy sermon from his priest or pastor and has never heard the significance or emphasis on blood lines throughtout the books of the Bible is of often influenced by preconceived notions that have been pounded into their heads since their youth. These people will quickly rush to a conclusion as the first Anonymous commenter has on this page.

    If Christians and disciples of Christ knew who hates them they would be awakened to the reality of this world.

    Read and comprehend Acts 6 and 7. The accusers have been the same people throughout history. Also, Mathew 15: 21-28 (Israel is a people not a country) notice the emphasis on relation and who were the pharisees and canaanites and who are their ancestors?

    I’m sure I’ll get some flack on this but I am just following my Fathers teaching. They hated Him first.

    1. You’re quoting a book written by multiple men, 100+ years after a Jewish man named Jesus died, and which has been modified over and over in the centuries since by tyrannical popes and kings. And you’re so certain that it’s still holy and infallible? You’re putting your trust in men, not “god”.

      1. WHAT SIR JOHN, DO YOU PLACE YOUR FAITH IN? THE MEDIA? SIX JEWISH CORPORATIONS OWN & CONTROL %96 OF THE MEDIA. YOUR GOVERNMENT? AIPAC (TOTALLY JEWISH) CONTROLS THE HOUSE, THE SENATE AND WHO MAY RUN FOR OFFICE. PERHAPS YOU PLACE YOUR FAITH IN THE TALMUD. LABELING CHRIST AS A JEW CERTAINLY IMPLIES THIS. WHY IS QUESTIONING YOUR HOLOHOAX LIE ILLEGAL IN 18 COUNTRIES? WHY IS EVERY SINGLE JEW A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR? WHY ARE LAWS PASSED ALL OVER OUR COUNTRY MAKING HOLOCAUST EDUCATION MANDATORY? THE GOYIM KNOW…………

    2. That is very true! Luke 23:31 For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”

  3. The First Amendment, like all constitutional rights, has its limits (can’t falsely yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater). People have been convicted of calling women “bitches” and using the N-word at black people so maybe it someone puts anti-Semitic hate literature on a Jewish person’s car they might have a legitimate beef. Nonetheless, the defendant seems like a nut job.

    1. No one’s been convicted of calling people something. That’s impossible. Unless done in the act of committing an actual crime against them.

    2. I CAN ASSURE YOU, I AM NOT CRAZY. DO YOU KNOW WHAT “ANTI-SEMETIC” IS? IT IS NOT SOMEONE WHO HATES JEWS. ANTISEMETIC IS SOMEONE THAT THE JEWS HATE. I AM YELLING “FIRE:”…………….OUR COUNTRY, AS WELL AS THE WORLD IS ON FIRE. AND GUESS WHO HAS BEEN “PLAYING WITH MATCHES”………………..CRUCIFYING THE SON OF GOD LOOKS PRETTY BAD ON A RESUME….. YOU WILL NOT FIND ANY AD-HOMINYM OR DISPARAGING WORDS ON THE MATERIAL I DISTRIBUTE. THESE FLYERS ARE DISTRIBUTED RANDOMLY & WITHOUT MALICIOUS INTENT. ADDITIONALY YOU WILL FIND NOTHING AT ALL HATEFUL ON THE FLYERS. GOD BLESS.

  4. Nobody yelled fire and nobody called anybody a name. I didn’t see anything that said a group of people should be hurt in any way. I didn’t scan the QR codes, I don’t know what they link to. The only thing I see is a guy getting punished by the thought police and sadly there are folks even here that think that this is okay.

    Distributing information is a crime because you don’t like the content? (The content actually being true from what I’ve seen in the photos here based on my years of research.)

    This guy has had more bad publicity and fines for passing information than any person burning Kenosha, robbing the tax payers of Pleasant Prairie blind, attempting to murder Kyle Rittenhouse while illegally carrying a firearm, illegally taking your 2nd amendment rights away in any taxpayer owned building in Kenosha or illegally using the office of the health director to shut schools down over the last 2 years.

    Unfortunately, actually destroying and pillaging our communities is okay in the eyes of the media and with the Kenosha police however a guy that understands why his dollar is worth nothing, why there has been endless wars, why his culture has been destroyed with pornography, homosexuality, breakdown of the family structure, why everyone is addicted to prescription drugs distributed to them by their doctors through kickbacks by big pharma and likely wants his country restored to what it was before the federal reserve system (a private central bank) was jammed down the throats due to a few idiotic politicians over 100 years ago deserves $4300 in fines and his photo all over the newspaper. Go figure.

    While most people are getting caught up by arguing between democrat and republican social issues they miss the big picture. The only threat this guy represents is to a corrupt system that has destroyed every country that it has wrapped its tentacles around and has funded both sides of every war.

    1. MR. LUKEWARM, YOU HAVE A FINE UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR WORLD. I DO WHAT I DO IN HOPES THAT OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN MIGHT HAVE A CHANCE TO ENJOY A LIFE OF PEACE, AND PERHAPS SOME JOY. AT THE RATE THINGS ARE GOING THAT SEEMS UNLIKELY IF WE ARE NOT ABLE TO WAKE THE SLEEPY SHEEP WHO BELIEVE THE MEDIA AND PEDOPHELIC POLITITIANS THAT PUSH TOLERANCE & INCLUSION, CULTURAL MARXISM & DEGENERACY. NOT TO MENTION DEMANDING THAT ALL THE GOYIM WORSHIP THE “CHRIST KILLERS”. I COULD, (AS YOU KNOW) GO ON AND ON. HOWEVER I WILL JUST SAY , “THANK YOU SIR, AND GOD BLESS YOU & YOURS”

    2. WHAT MYSELF AND MY BAND OF BROTHERS & SISTERS ARE ATTEMPTING TO DO, IS SIMPLY POINT OUT THE ENEMY IN THIS ETERNAL STRUGGLE. WE WANT TO NORMALIZE SAYING THE WORD “jew” WHEN IT IS APPROPRIATE TO USE THE WORD. IF THE “RUSSIANS” FOR EXAMPLE, WERE DOING WHAT THE JEWS HAVE BEEN DOING FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, WE WOULD BE CALLING THEM OUT. UNTIL THE IGNORANT MASSES CAN MERELY HEAR THE WORD JEW WITHOUT LOSING THEIR MINDS, THE TRAJECTORY THAT WE ARE ON WILL CONTINUE. THE PRIMARY WEAPON SYSTEM OF THE JEWS, WE BELIEVE, IS THE MEDIA & HOLLYWOOD. ALONG WITH THE ENORMOUS LIE THAT IS THE KEYSTONE OF THEIR VICTIMHOOD. GOD BLESS.

    1. YOU BANDY ABOUT THE TERM “RACIST” BOLDLY FROM YOUR POSITION OF ANONNIMITY. HAVE YOU READ OR HEARD ANYTHING I HAVE SAID? I SPEAK THE TRUTH SIR. I CHALLENGE YOU TO DISPROVE ANYTHING WHATSOEVER CONTAINED IN THE MATERIALS THAT I DISTRIBUTE. THE TRUTH SOUNDS LIKE HATE TO THOSE THAT HATE THE TRUTH. PEACE & GOD BLESS.
