Glenn Beck is not an anti-Semite - ADL Anti Defamation League apologizes in letter
Audio on you tube ^ | abe foxman

Posted on 11/15/2010 3:41:36 AM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing

Dear Glenn:

A Direct-mail piece recently sent to some ADL supporters around the country inadvertently misidentified you on a list of celebrities who had made anti-Semitic statements over the past year.

This was clearly a mistake, and we deeply regret that your name was included in the mailing, which was produced by an independent, third-party contractor. I hope you will accept my personal apologies.

Even though we may disagree from time to time, I know that you are a friend of the Jewish people, and a friend of Israel.

Sincerely

Abraham Foxman

You have independent, 3rd-party contractors writing your policy statements? What do you spend YOUR time doing, pulling your collective puds?

(Just curious.)

This is weak. At the very least ADL should proof-read what was written for them.

Easy solution.

NAME the contractor.

Then, FIRE their ass.

At least it was a real apology, not one of those “We’re sorry if you were so stupid you were offended” deals.

So, Mr. Foxmann, just how do you propose to put the toothpaste back in the tube. Furthermore, can you explain what some else is doing with your toothpaste?

Doesn’t anybody ever proof read what others are doing in their name?

It’s really nasty to throw around the anti-Semitic label without being thoroughly sure it’s correct, as it can have traumatic results, like losing ones job and good name. I see where some are now using the word super-racist which comes from using ‘racist’ willy nilly. If he’s not careful we’ll start seeing super-anti-semitism.

The “independent, third-party contractor” clearly was not independent, but wielded a far-left smear axe for whom?

Good point re over-use of pejorative superlatives, Super-anti-semitism could give way to hyper-super-anti-semitism.

Whoa!
I think the lawyers have gone over Beck’s three programs on Soros with a fine tooth comb and come up empty. Now it’s throwing poo hoping something will stick.

Thanks Glenn!

The poo stuck alright. All over Abe Foxman and the ADL. Someone is a liar at ADL. Who is the contractor? Glenn will find out.

Looks like the ADL is going the way of the rest of America... fat and lazy and refuses to work for themselves.

Once caught, Foxman at least had the brains to apologize and not make a fool of himself in this matter. Nevertheless, the ADL is and always has been a tool of Democrat oppression.

What I’d like to know is this: Was the mailing before or after his remarks about Soros?

Because I thought they recently condemned him for the Soros remarks, but would they have had time to send out a mailing since then?

You can proof read printed matter until you are blue in the face and the stupid printer will still put out garbage.

It's exceedingly frustrating.

BTW, for some categories of material the printers do not and cannot care ~ and it gets worse if they are the only ones who can do what you want.

I heard Glenn read this letter on his radio show last week, and I believe the apology was in regard to a previous incident by the ADL, not in reference to their accusations over the Soros show.

The “anti-semite” card is going the way of the “race card”. Both are over used and meaningless. I, for one, pay absolutely no attention to either.

Thanks, that’s what I thought. So he’s an anti-Semite, he’s not an anti-Semite, he’s an anti-Semite...this could get old, LOL.

—————What I’d like to know is this: Was the mailing before or after his remarks about Soros?-—————

This particular letter is before the three day soros event.

Though, “remarks about soros” does sound a bit off.

Pointing out Soros in his own words isn’t in any way anti semitic.

Foxman is also no friend to the American people.

This was no mistake.
The ADL, which has simply become another facet of the left/Dem/media hive, just wanted to get the idea and the accusation out there even if it was “withdrawn” later.
Now if you Google Glen Beck, it will forever be noted that the ADL once accused him of anti-semitism.

Who the hell would hire an “independent, third-party contractor” to put together a smear list? Now they need to apologize to everyone else on the list.

The same fascists who turn that smear list over to Homeland Security to assist in identifying domestic terrorists. The ADL needs to be sued out of existence.
