Skip to comments.ADL CEO under fire for partnering with Sharpton in advocating Facebook boycott

Anti-Defamation League national director and CEO Jonathan Greenblatt has come under fire from Jewish groups for appearing on the MSNBC show Politics Nation With Al Sharpton on Sunday to promote the ADLs call for corporations to boycott Facebook in July over its unwillingness to ban hate speech on the social-media giants platform.
While the message seems on target with ADLs work, the idea of partnering with someone like Sharpton, who has a history of anti-Semitism and other bigotry, is hypocritical, if not counterproductive, they say.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Simon Wiesenthal Centers associate dean and director of global social action, suggested that it was wrong of Greenblatt to appear the show since the well-known reverend, who these days makes more television appearances then leads a congregational flock, has never apologized to the Jewish community for his words and actions.
In addition to anti-Semitic rhetoric Sharpton has spewed over the years, his instigating violence during the August 1991 riots in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y., against the Chassidic Jewish community remains etched in history.

I used to work with Greenblatt 20 years ago. Always thought he was an arrogant tool.
(Rabbi Abraham) Cooper suggested that these online companies be threatened with government regulation, which he called the real cudgel.Surprised that a rabbi associated with the Simon Wiesenthal Center calls for bigger government. Rather than that, charge them with violating the Bill of Rights.
I just love it when liberals boycott liberals.
The Problem: Who gets to define hate speech?
And he ends up running the ADL as a reward. No wonder they push the 4chan hoax of “OK hand symbol is really ‘WP’ for White Power” as if it’s true.
Rabbi Cooper knows what is going on and who are our enemies, both anti-Jewish and anti-American.
Greenblatt is an Obama asskisser and now a Sharpton con-job cohort.
Beware of Greenblatt. He is a Marxist KAPO.
