New York, NY, October 12, 2010 The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today criticized Carl Paladino for a series of anti-gay remarks, including his assertion that children should not be "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option."
Ron Meier, ADL New York Regional Director, issued the following statement:
We are appalled by Carl Paladino's comments denigrating homosexuality and suggesting that a homosexual lifestyle is not "valid." His statements are an affront to all New Yorkers, and are particularly disturbing in light of several recent hate crimes targeting the LGBT community in the New York Metropolitan Area.
We have repeatedly urged all candidates to refrain from appeals to prejudice and bigotry. Such appeals are offensive, counterproductive and contrary to our nation's democratic values.
Earlier this year, ADL urged our national leaders and candidates to commit themselves to restoring civility to our public discourse. We renew that call today. A truly effective candidate is one who engages in thoughtful and reasoned debate and rejects divisive and hateful rhetoric. That is an essential ingredient of leadership.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, ADL neither supports nor opposes candidates for political office.
ADL = a bunch of swarmy radicals
The ADL is LIBERAL?? Wow...am I shocked!!
So I guess leftwing Jewish lawyers think young children should enjoy adult homosexuals mimicking carnal acts on the street. Who knew?
Great news! That oughtta get him some more votes
“We are appalled that Carl Would be appalled at Cuomo taking his children to see homosexuals grinding against each other in speedos on parade!!!
“Thats just good clean fun!
“No we’re not gay, why?”
Not all Jews are smart.(tm)
I’m really getting tired of the Leftists “Panties in a Wad” whine of the day!
Carl explained that he edited the statement written by the Rabbi’s. He said that he didn’t feel comfortable with some of the points. He said that he was against Gay marriage and thought that parents should teach their kids about homosexuality not the schools. The Rabbi’s issued their statement to the press, not the corrected version of what Pallidino really said.
I agree with him! The left is making a big issue out of nothing.
Note to Carl: Write your own statements next time.
That is not denigrating it, just saying it as it is
ADL has also attacked Geert Wilders. They are scum.
They do MUCH worse than that. I've seen pics from the SanFran parades where they are openly having sex with each other.
Buggery ain’t kosher.
What does homosexuality have to do with being Jewish?
Why no comment on Yehuda Levin? Hmmm..
Mimicking? Several years ago, I was doing a tradeshow in San Francisco during gay pride week. To get to my hotel required passing the route of one of these parades one afternoon. In just a short part of the my journey that overlapped, I saw to actual oral sex acts taking place in broad daylight. What has been seen cannot be unseen.
I’m really getting to like Paladino. He says what he thinks and lets the chips fall where they may.
So the ADL is supportive of sex up the wazoo? Weird,,, weird weird weird,,,
To the ADL, NAMBLA is an okay organization, but the Minutemen are terrorists. They have no sense of reality.
“So I guess leftwing Jewish lawyers think young children should enjoy adult homosexuals mimicking carnal acts on the street.”
The ADL is a Jewish organization? Who knew? Certainly doesn’t act like one.
