The ADL’s Disgrace
The ADL has now teamed up with Al Sharpton. Why?
The Greenblatt-Sharpton campaign is a left-wing power grab disguised as a civil rights mission. They and their allies are calling on Facebook to massively expand moderation of harassment based on "specific identity characteristics" like race or religion. That process "must include experts on various forms of identity-based hate"—doubtless appointed from groups like the ADL and Sharpton’s National Action Network, and with those organizations very well compensated for the service.
The result will be the systematic silencing of voices that dissent from the increasingly rigid orthodoxy of the Democratic Party. It is already clear that under that system, the anti-Semites like Sharpton will continue to get a pass and that "hate" will be sniffed out and silenced only when it doesn’t align with progressive goals.
This unholy alliance shows the truth of Eric Hoffer's observation that:
“Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.”
