Blind to the Obvious – Anti-Semitism is up, but even the ADL won’t say why.

The Anti-Defamation League just announced that anti-Semitic incidents in the United States rose dramatically in 2015. Colleges and universities were responsible for some 10 percent of the events, which included harassment, threats, and vandalism. The ADL, which pays close attention to such matters, said it was “not clear what may have led to the spike.” Any first-year political science major could furnish a working hypothesis.

    The ADL is still fighting those long-dead Nazis, and when not prefer to blame the very Christians who support and defend Israel. Heaven forbid that they mention the monster in the room: Islam. In fact by their own stubborn stupidity, they often end up alienating those who are favourable to Jews.

    • They are getting weirder.

      The ADL was doing the same thing back in the 1920s and ’30s, when the rising tide of antisemitism then was due to the rise of communism and fascism. They, for whatever reason were unwilling to face the truth of time, much less to speak it.

      Some Jewish writers then criticized the ADL for its relatively weak response to Henry Ford’s propaganda campaign back in the 1920s.

    We can’t worry about the weak willed toadies in the ADL and similar groups who are more interested in wine parties with the elite than doing their job. And the new head of the ADL is turning it into J-Street anyway.

    • It’s brutal.

      • Hard Little Machine

        Fuck ’em. They’re worthless.

    It’s hard to take the ADL seriously after they bashed the volunteers in the Minuteman border watch group as racists a few years back.

    Meanwhile, the ADL’s own research found that twice as many foreign-born hispanics are “strongly anti-semitic” compared with US-born ones. So keeping out illegal alien Mexicans (as the Minutemen tried to do) would actually be a plus for Jewish safety.

    Excellent picture! Clearly stated it all.

    The ADL only bats left handed.
