ADL’s “Rage Grows in America” Report

November 19, 2009

“In the year since we marked the historic election of the nation’s first African-American president we have seen a tremendous amount of anger and hostility,” Abraham H. Foxman, the National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, recently remarked. “There is a toxic atmosphere of rage in America being witnessed at many levels, and it raises fundamental questions for our society. While not all of America has bought into these conspiracies, they seem to be seeping more and more into the mainstream. And since many of these expressions are interconnected in some significant ways, we wanted to try and connect the dots and ask the basic questions of why the anger, why now, and where might it lead.”

The ADL’s Rage Grows in America: Anti-Government Conspiracies report was released Monday; it can be found in its entirety here. It covers many of the same groups and people that I’ve written about on this blog, in my book CULTS, CONSPIRACIES, AND SECRET SOCIETIES, and elsewhere: Birthers, Tea parties, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, the militia movement, and the Bizarro-world notion that Obama is a modern-day Hitler. That last one is especially galling since a critical segment of the “patriot” constituency (not all of it by any means–birthers Orly Taitz and Philip Berg are Jewish, for example) denies that Hitler did anything particularly terrible to Europe’s Jews, or nothing, anyway, that they didn’t deserve.

It’s a relief to see the ADL expending its considerable resources on something other than knee-jerk apologetics for Israel or Armenian holocaust denialism; it’s nice too to see that they’ve pissed off Commentary, which scolded them for “choosing to frame its report…..in such a way as to associate all those who have opposed Obama’s policies in one way or another with the far Right.” I wish they’d been more explicit about the implicit, sub rosa Anti-Semitism that does characterize many of these groups, including Jones’, who stridently denies it. “Now that global anti-semitism is on the wane,” he declares in the characteristically self-aggrandizing rejoinder that is posted on his Propaganda Matrix website under the headline Purging the Undesirables: The ADL Attempts to Pin a Yellow Star on Grass Roots America, “the ADL has resolved to ceaselessly fearmonger about ‘conspiracy theorists’ and American taxpayers who merely express anger about how they have been financially raped by the multi-trillion dollar bailout and the continued looting of the economy by private central banks and offshore cartels.”

The ADL has launched a new purge against its political enemies in the form of a major report that equates skepticism and distrust of government with ‘a toxic atmosphere of rage,’ which is threatening to boil over in the form of violence, specifically targeting Alex Jones as ‘The Conspiracy King’ and inferring that people upset with Barack Obama’s policies are potential mass murderers. The tone of the ADL’s hit piece basically implies that Alex Jones and his ilk are such a threat to the establishment that they should be removed from society, which ironically is exactly how Hitler dealt with his political enemies in Nazi Germany. The ADL is allegorically pinning a yellow star on “conspiracy theorists,” Oath Keepers, Tea Party protesters, and anyone else who dares express dissent in response to the financial looting of the country or Barack Obama’s big government agenda.

The article goes on to assert that no American “grass roots” group has ever committed or threatened to commit violence–they have always “urged unity and discouraged division, while promoting a peaceful message of non-violence.” “All the major acts of violence in connection with the militia movement during the 1990′s were committed by the government and federal agents”–at Ruby Ridge, Waco, and in Oklahoma City (Timothy McVeigh, it explains, was trained and “steered” by the FBI when he blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Building).

“International bankers,” “global governance,” and “one world currency” are all memes that allude directly or indirectly to the Conspiracy of the Learned Elders of Zion–as does the notion of a New World Order. Sometimes you don’t have to dig very deep at all into conspiracist literature to find anti-Semitism: Here’s a little something about the origins of the ADL that I just stumbled on at the Conspiracy Planet website.

In Jewish Hate, the Media, and the ADL, Dr. William Pierce concisely explains why and how the ADL was formed: ‘The ADL was organized in 1913 by a group of rich Jews specifically as a response to a notorious child-rape and murder in Georgia. Leo Frank was a Jew who owned a pencil factory in Atlanta.In 1913, he raped and murdered one of his White female employees, 14-year-old Mary Phagan. He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. The governor of Georgia, in response to Jewish lobbying — and, most believe, in response to a large Jewish bribe — almost immediately commuted the death sentence.’

Now for Something Completely Different: A Real Holocaust

So, what is the ADL covering up these days?

The Armenian Holocaust of 1915, in which more than 1.5 million Armenians were murdered. You’ve heard the term “young Turks?” Well, it was the “Young Turks” of last century’s Turkey who conducted that little piece of genocide.

What does this have to do with Abe Foxman? Lots. He’s related.

You see, the “Young Turks” almost exclusively were Jews who, as “Donmeh Muslims,” then controlled Turkey.

Dr. William Pierce, by the way, is the author of THE TURNER DIARIES, the novel about an American race war that inspired Tim McVeigh with its account of the destruction of the FBI building in Washington, DC by a fertilizer bomb in a parked truck. The “Donmeh Muslims” were desccended from followers of Sabbatai Zevi–who converted from Judaism to Islam in 1666–a full 250 years before the Armenian holocaust. Some of the Young Turks were indeed Donmeh; but there was no connection–institutional or sentimental–between them and Judaism or the nascent Zionist movement. This hasn’t stopped a number of fringe historians from developing a conspiracy theory in which the Donmeh, working with the Masons, exterminated the Armenians out of jealousy of their superior commercial skills and to clear the way for a future state of Israel (which the traditional Muslim Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid II had been opposed to). Some go so far as to say that the Zionists then “created” the Shoah, mostly by propaganda, sometimes by collaborating with Nazis in fratricidal murders, as a means of peopling Palestine with Jewish survivors.

Of course the real reason the ADL–along with the American Jewish Committee, B’nai Brith International, and the Jewish Institute of National Security Affairs–opposed Congressional recognition of the Armenian genocide as genocide back in 2007 was Realpolitik pure and simple. The Jews of Turkey supported their government’s denialist position out of fear of a Muslim backlash; there was concern that a challenge from foreign Jews might jeopardize Turkey’s relatively friendly relations with Israel. It was a shameful stance indeed and one that the ADL has since backed off on.

    Sigh…My grandmother sent me a FWD that had a little rhyme about how the christian religion is being erased by democrats, political correctness police(Mysterious They/Them) and how no one is speaking up…or doing anything about it.
    How does all this get whipped together? I mean, I kinda know. Sour economy, high unemployment, the blame game and people seeking power.
    I am hoping the main swath of the public is ignoring all this and looking only to fill the refrigerator. Help a neighbor or friend, and look to doing honest work(even if understation) to get threw the tough times. I think it makes the fringes go into an “arms race” per se. Spending an afternoon at a group yelling about something you have not witnessed yourself is a waste of productive time.

    All my little pumpkins,

    You are all unhappy. Well our President just went to China hat in hand. Why? Right wing industrial capitalists got us here. The Left is burying us here. Obama can’t talk about human rights. Can’t talk about the trade defecit. Ignore the Dali Lama. Why? A crushing, patient communist country is our lien holder. That’s right Becksters&ACLUers. Note the Pres does not make law. 6th Grade soc.studies. Health care won’t go thru unless China buys our debt. Tax cuts, stimulus, recovery, war CANNOT happen without China’s ok. Righties: Want that cheap fuel or a loan to start a business? Lefties: Want loans to start up an organic farm? How about keeping unemployed in their homes?
    Look at China. You have to swallow the idea of sweatshops, population control and totalitarianism. I know we like to snipe each other. You aren’t happy with Congress or the Pres. Republicans aren’t doing jack but throwing marbles on the floor. We are on the edge of losing dominant influence status in the global arena. Focus. In Obama’s shoes, the mantles put on him are nearly impossible. China is simply practicing reverse “Dollar Diplomacy”. Sacrifices have to be made. Our “way of life” is liquid, that’s why Mike Savage is trapped in a dream world. We may be asked, Oh Entitlement Generation, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” It won’t be “fun”.

    Sure Russia won the war; they (and the jews that run it) write the propaganda. Look at the holohoax.

    Hitler was not a very good war planner or he would have sacked Moscow before turning south, no bog down in Stalingrad (except to burn it) and south to the oil fields to hold them hostage or burn them to the ground to starve commie jew Stalin of oil.

    The Russian people are not to blame. They were told not to worship God and all churches were burned (except synogogues) and if the factories in the Urals had been bombed by the Luftwaffe instead of St. Petersburg and the drain on the German war effort stopped; National Socialism would have created a different world (and I believe better place) can it get any worse? We face nuclear annihilation–it is certain, and coming.

    As for political ideology, Hitler was right. There is not one group that sticks up for the white race.

    I say burn every judea concern to the ground and do not stop until they are smoldering hulks, TV stations, banks the lot. A Chrystalnacht for the 21st century…..believe it.

      This post pretty much tests the limits of my open door policy for comments; it also illustrates why, for all its flaws, the ADL serves an essential purpose.

      Wow. Doubleyou oh boubleyou…wow. I see special holidays and quota organizations like handicapped parking spaces. Cliff, do you really need a special-ed holiday just for you? Need a day where whites(I thought Jews were caucazoids) get a free coffee at Starbucks and a gold star pinned to your shirt(Excuse the pun) showing off how special you are?
      You see there’s the problem. How do you tell the difference from a Serb from a Croat? A Georgian from a Chechen from a Pole from a Swede from a German from a Russian from an Afrikaner from a Spaniard from an Anglican from a Scott from a Norwegian from a Irishmen from an Aussie? What is white? Can you tell the difference from a Korean from a Japanese from a Chinaman from Vietnamese from a Phillipino from a Samoan from a Hawaiian? I know they all look like Eskimos. F.Y.I. Stalin and Adolfus did not “just kill Jews” nor was Stalin nice to Jews. The final solution encompassed anyone who was counter to the State. That means if your neighbor didn’t like you for cutting the grass on the weekend, he could call the police and say he heard you listening to banned music. If you complained about wages and taxes, you may just get a brown sedan visiting in the middle of the night.
      Beans you like Russian trivia, here’s one. Why is the Kremlin built the way it is? Muslim influence on architecture on an Eastern Orthodox Christian church. Ding! Fries are done.

      Snap! I got it! So what Cliff is saying is that Auswitz was a taxpayer funded Club Med. Why? Because Jews are special and worthy of pampering. That they should get their own gated communities far from the grudgery of Frankfurt. That way they were also protected from bombing! This takes us to the conclusion that Cliff believes that Hitler and Gerbles were too chickenshit to do anything about the Jew problem other than lie. Hmm. Hmm. So while the Japanese would bust a POWs ribs and repeatedly dunk them in the water(causing excrutiating pain from trying to hold your breath) until they exhausted and finally drown. Nazi Germany paid for Jews to play tennis and the countries were allies? I guess so. So why are you a Hitler fan and hate Jews? You should be one or the other. Maybe you should give a Jew a portion of your paycheck because you know the truth. That Jews are better than you. Hitler knew it, so should you.

    The White race is the only race that is not only discouraged
    from sticking up for itself, but is actually condemned if it does
    so. A Black can say ‘Black Power’, a Latino can say ‘Brown
    Power’, but if a White man says ‘White Power’, he is
    automatically labelled a racist. Why? I would really like an answer to this question, preferrably from a non-White or a
    Jew.

    Proud to be white by Michael Richards…a.k.a. “Kramer”
    Date Posted: Friday 20-Nov-2009

    Admittedly, this may be considered to be a bit “crude” to some, but it also makes a very good point.

    (I did not write this, in case anybody was wondering…Kramer did!)

    I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is.

    Michael Richards makes his point…

    PROUD TO BE WHITE

    Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good point. This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points…

    Someone finally said it… How many are actually paying attention to this?

    There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc. And then there are just Americans. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.

    You call me ‘White boy,’ ‘Cracker,’ ‘Honkey ,’ ‘Whitey,’ ‘Caveman’ … And that’s OK. But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink … You call me a racist.

    You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you….So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

    You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Yom Hashoah. You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi. You have the NAACP. You have BET…

    If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) we’d be racists!
    If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists!
    If we had White History Month, we’d be racists!

    If we had any organization for only whites to ‘advance’ OUR lives
    we’d be racists!

    We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that??

    A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but a woman of any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

    If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships…You know we’d be racists!

    There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US.

    Yet if there were ‘White colleges’ That would be a racist college!

    In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.

    If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists!

    You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you’re not afraid to announce it.

    But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists!

    You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist!

    I am proud…But you call me a racist. Why is it that only whites can be racists?

    There is nothing improper about this.

    Let’s see which of you are proud enough to agree to this. I sadly don’t think many will. That’s why we have lost most of OUR RIGHTS!

    In this country. We won’t stand up for ourselves!

    BE PROUD TO BE WHITE!

    It’s not a crime yet, but getting real close!

      I hate to dignify this kind of vile, disgusting crap with any kind of a reply, but for what it’s worth, Michael Richards was never arrested after his racist meltdown at LA’s Laugh Factory, and he apologized for it profusely. This speech has been making the rounds on the Internet for a long time, with and without his name attached to it. Snopes.com tells the story.

    Cliff! You are back! So glad you are not a hit and run. Arthur it is okay. I have an answer for Ghost and Cliff. They are liberals and I, as a confederate conservative, am here to help.

    Yes, Cliff, you are a liberal. You say, “My civil liberties are not as important as theirs and I want what they are getting!”

    Well, I agree and I think it is a good idea. Let me help out and everyone will see why. First, our group has to have a better name than White anything. Seperate ourselves from stereotypes. Call it “National European American Community Co-op” or NEACCP. Most white power groups uplift no one. They get drunk, shoot guns in the air and burn the symbol of sacrifice of my Lord and Savior. A capital offense in Europe throughout the middle-ages on to the 16th century. This includes glorification of enemies of the USA. This excludes NAZISM. I digress.

    To make the NEACCP a success let’s look at how other groups work. Get a Code of Conduct from the NAACP. Line out African American and install European American for starters. Minority groups are so successful because of their grassroots, non-violent actions. We need volunteers that will start soup kitchens. Run food drives. Hop in cars and help out if disaster strikes. We turn no one away in a soup line but we only accept those of European heritage as members. We visit the sick and the elderly. We collect donations to help “adopted” families and, yes, we start a National Euro-American College Fund.

    Let me get back to membership. I think being more inclusive than exclusive is the key. We are as strong as our donors! Here is the tail of three cousins. They are 25% filipina, 25% caucazoid, 50% other. One is fair skinned, blonde hair, blue eyes. One is almond skinned, thick straight bark hair and dark brown eyes. One is light skinned, blue eyes, black wavy hair. I know a woman that is 25% Asian but identifies herself as Caucasian. The public has mixed opinions. Another is 50% black but sees herself as Caucasian and grew up riding four-wheelers in the Nevada deserts. Myself, I have sun burned 4 times in my life. I learned Spanish because people assume I am Latino. I’ve had Turks say I look Greek. Germans say I look Turkish. Italians and Peurto Ricans think I am one of “them”. Test my DNA, I am none of the above. My skin is a recessed trait from Cherokee intermarriage around the time of the Civil War. My brother is like a cave fish, so pale you can see his guts. That said, NEACCP members can be anyone who has a Caucazoid family member that is third generation, i.e. a grandparent. A members children are included in all activities. Therefore, our members will be diverse in appearance.

    Religions. This is a group focused on the empowerment, recognition and betterment of Caucazoids and their communities. All religions are accepted as they have nothing to do with ethnicity AND we respect and love the constitution. Free religion is just as important as speech and gun rights.

    Children. Other minority groups are so successful because of foreward thinking. Everyone who was a slave, slaveowner or participated in the Civil War is dead. WWII was 60 odd years ago. 1969 was 40 years ago. Why are we cramming fresh souls with old ideas? Why do we give them our hang-ups? The NEACCP will address things like the NAACP. Just as you stated above with Ghost. There is reverse discrimination for reasons you had nothing to do with. Other children may attack you for no other reason but the color of your skin. We will have workshops to passively deal with bullies and race-baiting. We can invite in ex-gangmembers to speak about gangs, how they draw you in. The police can give classes on drugs and crime prevention. Give children, who are terrified of other races, a little less fear. Arm them with knowledge. Not racist knowledge(All blacks are “blank”.) but knowledge in what poor parenting of other ethnic kids can bring out. How to get past those barriers. We can invite Barak Obama. Study Dr. King(MLK) and Ghandi. Our Caucasian greats. Churchill, Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, Lewis&Clark, Armstrong and Mark Twain to name a few. NEACCP will focus on helping disenfranchised families and break down the stereo type the “White is all right.” Did Eimenem have a good time growing up because he was white? No. With our college fund we can help uplift kids with parents addicted to meth and forgotten in trailerparks outside Topeka, KS.

    If we do all these positive things, despite being ridiculed and mocked. Despite having other racist groups hating us(Bad press from Aryans and the KKK will boost us by their distance in the media.) Eventually we can lobby against those things that have got us in a tizzy. I have never wronged a black man so why did one shoulder-check me in a mall in Dallas?

    Eventually the special interest groups will sees and respect our special interest group. Especially if we ally on disasters, education and children’s health issues. You see, after awhile everyone might finnally realize that once everyone is special, nobody is. The NAACP can disband. The NEACCP can disband. The handicapped parking left for the disabled and elderly. King’s dream can come to reality. Our children or grandchildren may live in a world without our baggage.

    What do you think, Cliff? Ghost? Arthur?

    We need to test our limits sometimes; and, I commend you for your stance for free speech rights….as opposed to the ADL and their insane desire to turn America into Communist Canada by passing unconstitutional hate speech laws on an unsuspecting public. What’s next? Richard Warman for President?

    The Anti-Defamation League is no longer a “civil rights” organization which claims to look out for Jews, and the equality of all, but Jews first and foremost.

    It is clear that they have overstepped the boundaries of what kind of organization they claim to be, and are now the adjuct of various corporate, political and private entities including the governmnet of Israel, the Federal Reserve, Goldman Sachs, Bernard Madoff, Congress the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank ect.

    What gives the Anti-Defamation League the authority to be the Grand Inquisitor of America?
