Why Does The Anti-Defamation League Want Jews (And America) To Commit Suicide?
The recent death and well-attended
memorial service of San Francisco Congressman Tom
Lantos was a sad reminder that even people who ought to
know better sometimes don`t get it: a man who escaped
from a Nazi concentration camp should understand that
your tribe`s enemies will kill you if they can.
The young Tom Lantos was darn lucky to get out of
WWII Europe alive. But did he learn the obvious
immigration lesson, namely to at least
keep out the bad guys?

Jewish liberals understand a basic principle of

Yet one of the best known advocate organizations for
Anti-Defamation League, has long been up to its
eyeballs in support for
unfriendly immigrants whose entrance
violates the basics of national security.
Not to mention America`s values of free speech,
individual rights and a society based in law.
Jaws dropped all across America when a CNN news

DOBBS: The ADL—oh, yes, sure.
MURGUIA: And you`ve used a few of those code words
DOBBS: Name one code word.
MURGUIA: Well, they talk about dehumanizing.
They`re demonizing immigrants…

Americans don`t have a problem with an organization
that supports the rights and safety of Jews here. (Or
other ethno-orgs, for that matter, as long as they limit
their activities to reasonable advocacy for their tribe
annoying treason—although I cannot think of such a
group at the moment.)
However, the ADL does quite the opposite of
protecting its tribe: the
League`s support for open borders
endangers Jews by
welcoming historic enemies. If this group is the
numero uno friend of Jews, then their dance card is
full up of trouble.
The ADL is so stuck on loony liberalism that it
ignores even its own research. According to a 2002 ADL
report, foreign-born Hispanics are far more anti-Semitic
than those who have lived their lives in America.
The findings in brief:
- 17% of Americans
- 35% of Hispanics
- 44% of foreign-born Hispanics
- 20% of Hispanic Americans born in U.S.
Even so, this self-defined defender
of Jews wants to import millions more anti-sems, a
policy which is self-defeating if not suicidal. The
ADL`s attitude is another example where liberals allow
ideology to trump facts. They would rather attain the
imaginary PC virtue of perfect multicultural diversity
than be safe.
Or perhaps the ADL fears declining anti-Semitism
among homegrown Americans and hopes to keep its
organizational mission alive and fundable by welcoming
immigrants who have
unkind views toward Jews—Muslims

sure-fire way to job security!
But arguably worse than ignoring its stated goals,
ADL demeans the American friends of sovereignty. In
daily Islamic murders of Jews, other westerners and
Muslims not pals with the local headchop contingent, the
ADL focuses its umbrage on the courageous
voices for civilization. People who are trying to
save the country, like Tom Tancredo, get some of the
Interestingly, black border defenders like
Terry Anderson and
Ted Hayes got bashed
in the same online blurb in which
VDARE.com was called a "racist website." The
ADL pulls these shenanigans while attempting to maintain
its credibility. Apparently, tough questions are not
being asked about how immigration restrictionists can be
both racist and
welcoming to black citizens.
Immigration page of the ADL website is seriously
hung up on "hate"—as if that were the worst thing
on earth. Worse than losing your country, for example.
If this were 1940, the ADL would be complaining of
French hatred of invading Germans. Think of all the
economic stimulus they brought to Paris, it would argue.
Sales of burgundy soared as a result of increased German
diversity and trade. Etc.
Sorry to break this to the League, but what it calls
“hate speech” is
plain old free speech—and pretty accurate at that.
What ADL finds objectionable is citizens speaking
truthfully about a sacrosanct liberal icon—that
"immigration," defined broadly, is now
almost entirely negative to the national body politic.
And like many other leftist dinosaurs, the ADL finds
details about legality too troublesome to mention.
The baseless "reports" it flacks are an
attempt to impose the spineless,
dishonest PC speech codes that are now common on
college campuses onto mainstream political
discourse. The open-borders people cannot win an honest
debate about immigration where the real problems of
worsening anarchy are on the table.
When even a few of the ADL`s objections about
mean-spirited language are analyzed, it`s obvious that
the citizens` complaints are well founded.
Take a few lines from An ADL "study" called
Immigrants Targeted (October, 2007) which are
supposed to shock readers:
- “Using terminology that describes immigrants as part of
over the border. This dehumanizing language has
The accusation that restrictionists
"dehumanize" illegals is nonsense. In fact, quite
the opposite is true. Rather than treating Mexicans and
other illegal immigrants as incapable of responsibility
(a version of the
"soft bigotry of lowered expectations"), most
Americans see them as moral adults, capable of obeying
the law—specifically, immigration law. Liberals choose
to treat them like little children—all the better to
create a dependent class.

Chagas disease (a potentially fatal
parasitic disease), dengue fever, polio, malaria.”

conspiracy theories about an alleged secret
`reconquista` plot by Mexican immigrants to
create a `greater Mexico` by seizing seven
states in the American Southwest that once
belonged to Mexico.”
Reconquista is hardly a secret plot
since it is
taught on every college campus with a
Chicano Studies department. The reputable Zogby
polling firm found in 2002 that
58 percent of Mexicans believe that the
U.S. Southwest belongs to them. Does
that finding make Zogby guilty of "hate speech"?
Consider the ADL`s reissue of John F. Kennedy`s
little book, A Nation of Immigrants,
50th anniversary. The ADL was instrumental in producing
this book as propaganda for the
floodgate-opening 1965 Immigration Act, i.e. was
complicit in our current immigration disaster from the
very beginning. On its website, the ADL lays the lard on
thick, with a
whole page of sepia-toned homage on its website. One
item is a brief
video of the author himself in 1963, and there is a
more recent clip of the putrefying brother,
Senator Ted, of the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill.
“When the Anti-Defamation League
(ADL) reached out to the junior senator from
Massachusetts in 1957 to highlight the contribution of
immigrants, the country was locked in a debate about the
direction its policy should take.
“Then, as now, hate groups were beating the drums
of anti-foreigner slogans and tried to sway the public
and elected officials toward a restrictive immigration

toward the border is exactly what citizens want after 40
years of unhealthy immigration bingeing—America has
gorged on too many empty calories for decades and is
overdue for a serious diet, with
And didn`t Foxman read the report of Israeli scholar
Prof Raphael Israeli, that
"life can become untenable" for westerners
when the Muslim population reaches 10 percent? The
scholar warned Australians last year,
"When the Muslim population gets to a critical mass
you have problems." That`s exactly what`s gone
so wrong in Europe, from
terrorism to social
rioting over Danish cartoons.
How does Abraham Foxman get away with demanding open
borders when there is so much immigration trouble
The ADL is playing a dangerous game by siding with
foreigners against America. The
majority of citizens of all political stripes want
immigration anarchy to end, and they don`t consider
themselves racist or mean for doing so.
However, if it continues to urge America to commit
national suicide, it may find that it has created
anti-Semitism rather than prevented it.
