The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) will review its teaching materials provided as part of bias training for K-12 teachers after finding evidence of critical race theory and other ideologies left-wing radicals, such as “intersectionality”.
Critical race theory is the idea that white supremacy permeates all American institutions and American society. “Intersectionality” is the idea that so-called “oppressed” groups should support each other — a concept that has led various left-wing groups to embrace the anti-Israel cause, which often crosses the border of the world. anti-Semitism. (Jews, ironically, are excluded from “intersectionality.”)
The ADL was founded as a Jewish civil rights organization, but recently veered into left-wing politics under CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, a former Obama administration official.
Fox News Digital conducted an investigation that showed ADL materials repeated left-wing propaganda about race, including drills on “white privilege” and reparations for slavery.
Like school districts that have been caught teaching critical race theory, the ADL has denied doing so. However, he admitted he was “far from perfect” and said he would review documents he said were “misaligned” with the organization’s values.
Critics, however, allege that the documents are entirely consistent with the left-wing values of the ADL under Greenblatt, as noted by Jonathan S. Tobin of the Jewish News Syndicate:
What Fox discovery was entirely consistent with the organization’s actions and decisions in the years since Jonathan Greenblatt took over as CEO, replacing longtime leader Abe Foxman. Greenblatt helped move the ADL from its former position as a nonpartisan gold standard for hate monitoring to another liberal activist group whose priority is helping the Democratic Party — which makes sense. for a former Clinton and Obama White House staffer. Rather than being “misaligned,” the endorsements of the CRT teachings are very much aligned with how the ADL has made it a priority to stay in step with fashionable radical ideas about race and avoid to be labeled as a bastion of Zionist privilege by their left-wing allies.
The ADL has long been primarily interested in attacking far-right anti-Semites whom it tries to tie to Republicans and conservatives while downplaying how left-wing anti-Semites have taken over academia and been accepted into society. popular culture and the left. wing of the Democratic Party. But the school curriculum content in their hate education curriculum is a testament to how these ideas have become part of the ADL’s core business model and seem consistent with much of the material that is regularly tweeted by the @ADL_education Twitter account.
As Breitbart News has reported over the years, Greenblatt and the ADL have despaired of Black Lives Matter with anti-Semitic organizations, backing a statement calling for the movement’s leadership to be black.
Earlier this year, the ADL changed the definition of “racism” on its website after Breitbart News and others pointed out that the definition was in fact racist against white people.
The ADL has also backed campaigns to censor free speech online, targeting Breitbart News as well as “hate” groups.
