Erin Schrode, 25, is hoping to become the Democratic candidate for Congress from California’s second district after the state’s Democratic primary this week.

Schrode is also Jewish.

This week, she says, she has seen a torrent of anti-Semitic abuse hurled at her online in a coordinated campaign on a neo-Nazi blog that has backed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The attacks reflect “more and more anti-Semitism this election cycle,” Schrode told BuzzFeed.

Late Saturday, she posted on Facebook some of the vitriol she has received.

“Everyone knows it’s TIME for America’s first evil retarded teen cunt Congress kike!”

“Fire up the oven!”

“All would laugh with glee as they gang raped her and then bashed her bagel eating brains in.”

Another comment, quoted by BuzzFeed, reads, “Get out of my country, kike. Get to Israel where you belong. That or the oven. Take your pick.”
