ADL Statement Suggests Obama Must Distance Himself from Sharpton

January 23, 2008

NJDC’S Guide to Responding to Obama, Clinton, and Edwards Smears aimed at Jewish Voters contains a statement from Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League. This statement leaves little doubt that Barack Obama must distance himself from the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton if he expects voters to take him for anything but a sick and demented practical joke on the American people.

ADL National Director Abraham Foxman released a statement saying: “We welcome Barack Obama’s condemnation of the anti-Semitic rhetoric of Minister Louis Farrakhan, and his making clear that he did not agree with his church’s decision to honor Farrakhan. Issues of racism and anti-Semitism must be beyond the bounds of politics. When someone close to a political figure shows sympathy and support for an individual who makes his name espousing bigotry, that political figure needs to distance himself from that decision. Senator Obama has done just that.”

If the ADL expects Obama to distance himself from second-hand contact with a professional bigot and hate monger (the contact being through the intermediary of Jeremiah Wright and the Trinity United Church of Christ), then what are we to say of his direct and repeated contact with, and outright endorsement and promotion of, a racist and anti-Semite like Al Sharpton?

Sharpton and Obama (#2)

Senator Barack Obama (Ill): “Reverend Sharpton is a voice for the voiceless, and a voice for the dispossessed. What National Action Network has done is so important to change America, and it must be changed from the bottom up.”

Does that include leading racist and anti-Semitic demonstrations around Jewish-owned stores before a deranged individual burns them to the ground, Barack?

Help ADL Whitewash Hate in Your Community

December 22, 2007

The following appeal from the Anti-Defamation League, known to us as the Antisemitism enabling and Denial League, came to our attention today.

What would you do if you were the target of an anti-Semitic incident?

We certainly wouldn’t contact the Anti-Defamation League, because ADL would probably deny that it happened, say that those who allegedly perpetrated it were somewhere else at the time, and finally proclaim that the perpetrators were only following orders. This has been our experience with ADL’s whitewash of’s hate-filled Action Forum, and ADL’s sanitization of the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton. (more…)

Does the ADL Sanitize Anti-Semites to Protect the Democrat Left?

November 21, 2007

A review of recent actions by Abraham Foxman and the Anti-Defamation League raises some unpleasant questions. Is the ADL carrying forward its stated mission of opposing anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of bigotry, or is it running interference for the often anti-Semitic left wing of the Democratic Party?

This November, Mr. Foxman issued a joint statement with the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton and his National Action Network. The National Action Network is the same organization that, under Sharpton’s personal leadership, paraded around a Jewish-owned store in Harlem while yelling racial and anti-Semitic epithets, along with an arson threat that was later put into effect. There is no difference between what Sharpton and the National Action Network did to Freddy’s Fashion Mart and what the Ku Klux Klan once did to African-Americans who moved into the “wrong” neighborhoods. By making a joint statement with Sharpton, and by lending what is left of the Anti-Defamation League’s good name to this, Foxman sanitized and whitewashed a vicious anti-Semite and hate monger in the same league as David Duke and Tom Metzger. Al Sharpton could become a serious liability to next year’s Democratic nominee, and a clean bill of health from the ADL would go a long way toward reducing this vulnerability. (more…)

Anti-Defamation League: A Sick Joke, Lie, and Fraud

Abraham Foxman Joins Prominent Anti-Semite and Racist in Joint Statement

Nazi concentration camps turned the respectable German slogan Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Makes you Free) into a sick joke, because the inmates were there to be worked to death or exterminated in gas chambers. Abraham Foxman, the same individual who whitewashed’s anti-Semitic hate speech, contributed to a diplomatic crisis with Turkey by sticking ADL’s collective nose into the Armenian genocide issue while causing senior ADL leaders to quit in disgust, has now turned the Anti-Defamation League into an equally sick joke.

‘Bubbie’ Web ad for Jews seen as crossing the line

by ron kampeas

Just how persuasive is a Jewish grandmother armed with a lethal handbag?

And does “Bubbie,” a cartoon Jewish Democrat who knocks Republicans into oblivion, cross a line in a campaign season that already has seen pitched advertisement battles in the Jewish community?

“I’m saddened, disappointed and offended,” said Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. “It pits Christians against Jews, it uses stereotypes we should know better about projecting.” (more…)

Response to ADL’s 2007 Annual Appeal

June 27, 2007

We received ADL’s 2007 Annual Appeal, which says “ADL teaches people to say ‘no’ to bigotry.” Although we can always use free address labels, we will not be using the ones you sent because we do not wish to associate our name with the organization that used its prestige and Jewish identity to whitewash’s anti-Semitic and other forms of hate speech last year: (more…)
