The anti-defamation league has destroyed peoples’ lives for less, but they have chosen to remain silent on the anti-semitism of one of its leaders.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
The Anti-Defamation League, which bills itself as an anti-bigotry watchdog group, is curiously silent in the face of anti-Semitic remarks from an employee of a key member of its corporate diversity council.
Google, which reassigned a top employee last week after a Washington Free Beacon report on his anti-Semitic remarks, is among a handful of corporations that work with the ADL on diversity issues. “We thank these corporations and others who stand with us to help us build diversity,” a recent ADL report said, recognizing Google as a partner in its efforts.
Google came under fire last week for the anti-Semitic remarks made by its then-diversity chief, Kamau Bobb, who said in a 2007 blog post that Jews have an “insatiable appetite for war.” Bobb is still working on Google’s tech education initiatives, although he was removed from his diversity role after the Free Beacon reported on his comments.
“If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself,” he wrote in a Nov. 30, 2007, post on his personal blog, where he was still actively publishing as recently as April 2021. “Self defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering [of] others.”
The group is not new to partisan attacks. It immediately condemned the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.
