ADL OK With Hypocrisy — The Anti-Defamation League was founded to combat anti-semitism but has progressed into something, well, different.
It has now declared the OK hand sign to be an indication of racism along with bowl hair cuts.
Here’s a principle that can’t be denied: Those who treat the petty seriously will be treated pettily. Hand signs, hair cuts and green frogs are all petty things.
Here’s another principle that can’t be denied: Those who treat the serious stuff as petty will also be treated pettily.
Political figures sucking up to proven anti-semitic bigots — as just about every Democrat candidate did with Al Sharpton and the Congressional Black Caucus (with future President Barack Obama) did with Louis Farrakhan — are serious matters. Granted the ADL consistently condemns Farrakhan but invariably gives a pass to his Democrat enablers.
That sort of defeats the point of the group’s purpose.
The ADL makes petty the serious and the serious petty.
It should not be taken seriously.
