While the ADL’s public face is that of an organization determined to rid the U.S. of ‘hate groups’, its raison d’etre in the absence of any serious threats of anti-semitism, is not defense of Jews, per se, but defense of Israel and the intimidation and public humiliation of its critics.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was formed by B’nai B’rith in 1913. The order was closed to all non-Jews and to any Jew who fraternized with Christians. The power of the B’nai B’rith has grown immensely during the past 166 years.
The Jews at the ADL work together with their fellow Jews and non-Jewish collaborators at Facebook, Twitter, and other social media companies to censor and control what you can read and see and hear and say to others.
“Online hate & extremism pose a significant threat. We were glad to share our expertise with @YouTube on updating their policies to keep #hate off their platform. This is an important step forward, but must be followed by many more.”
New York, NY, June 5, 2019 … ADL (Anti-Defamation League) issued the following statement regarding YouTube’s policy changes, announced today, to reduce extremist content, including white supremacy, conspiracy theories and Holocaust denialism:
“Online hate and extremism pose a significant threat — weaponizing bigotry against marginalized communities, silencing voices through intimidation and acting as recruiting tools for hateful, fringe groups,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO and National Director.
“That’s why ADL has been working with technology companies, including YouTube, to aggressively counter hate on their platforms. We were glad to share our expertise on this and look forward to continuing to provide input.
While this is an important step forward, this move alone is insufficient and must be followed by many more changes from YouTube and other tech companies to adequately counter the scourge of online hate and extremism.”
A recent ADL survey found that 37 percent of Americans experienced severe online hate and harassment in 2018, including sexual harassment, stalking, physical threats or sustained harassment. Seventeen percent of all users experienced hate and harassment on YouTube specifically.
Building on ADL’s century of experience building a world without hate, the Center for Technology and Society (CTS) serves as a resource to tech platforms and develops proactive solutions to fight hate both online and offline. CTS works at the intersection of technology and civil rights through education, research and advocacy.
B’nai B’rith was instrumental in gaining U.S. support for the nascent Zionist state of Israel in the late 1940s. The Jewish secret society of Freemasons used President Harry Truman’s friend – and their agent – Eddie Jacobson of Kansas City (standing behind Truman) in off-the-record meetings in the Oval Office to persuade the president to approve the Zionist land grab known as the 1947 U.N. Partition Plan of Palestine and then to recognize the state of Israel the next year following the Zionist ethnic cleansing of nearly 400 Palestinian villages and towns.
By applying pressure directly on Truman, B’nai B’rith dictated U.S. policy in spite of strong resistance from the U.S. Department of State. When Truman extended de jure recognition of the Zionist state on January 31, 1949, the only guests invited to the signing ceremony in the Oval Office were members of B’nai B’rith: Eddie Jacobson, the B’nai B’rith executive vice president Maurice Bisgyer, and the secret society’s president, Frank Goldman (sitting).
The ADL — which has extensive ties to organized crime — even has the audacity to set up “training” programs for our police, who are taught by them the ADL’s version of who is a “bad guy” and deserves police scrutiny and intervention.
