ADL, Antifa and Koch: Toxic Anti-Trump League, by Michelle Malkin
We're not the only ones who have noticed that the ADL has been falling down on the job when it comes to fulfilling its mission of battling anti-Semitism. Not only is guilty of mission creep, but it's also forgotten to actually battle anti-Semitism. Michelle Malkin has done some digging and here is some of what she's found regarding the ADL.
The Anti-Defamation League is a joke.
Once a respected civil rights organization dedicated to fighting extremism and hate against Jews, the ADL lies in bed with violent antifa extremists and perpetuates hate against political opponents. The "progressive" group is now a brazenly partisan character assassination outfit headed by Jonathan Greenblatt, a Clinton/Obama operative and former George Soros-funded operative, whose contempt for President Donald Trump trumps all.
No, you don't have to be Jewish to recognize that the ADL has become just another progressive, anti-Trump partisan organization.
And then there is this:
That's the backdrop you need to know for the ADL's unveiling this week of a compendium of coded gestures it deems "hate symbols." The database includes the "OK" hand sign (initially a joke on the 4Chan internet troll forum), bowl haircuts (because crazed church shooter Dylan Roof had one, all white men with bad hairdos like his must be massacre-minded white supremacists), and the numbers 1-11, 100%, 9%, 12, 13, 14, 18, 28, 38, 43, 83, 88, 311, 318, 511 and 737 (because somewhere someone purportedly associated with something remotely racist had some tattoo or slogan or hand sign using the Dastardly Digits of Evil).
I've heard the number thing before, but I thought it was a Babylon Bee-type parody. It's not. Those numbers (maybe along with others) are listed as hate numbers, or hate symbols, or some stupid thing. So if I don't want to be censured by the ADL or listed as a hate monger by the SPLC, when I turn 83, I will have to tell people that I'm 80 plus 3. Unless those two numbers somehow gain a bad reputation.
Oh wait, can I use the number 2?
