Long ago, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was the primary organization that could be relied on to call out and combat anti-Semitism without fear or favor. Its support for Jewish causes and Israel was unwavering even if its internal politics leaned left.
Enter Jonathan Greenblatt as the ADL’s CEO and National Director. Before employment at ADL, Greenblatt served in the White House as Special Assistant to President Obama and Director of the Office of Social Innovation. Yes, President Obama, who was trained in Marxism and Communism by prominent communists, palled around with unrepentant domestic terrorists like William Ayers and his terrorist wife Bernardine Dohrn and worshiped for over 20-years with his “spiritual mentor,” Reverend Jerimiah Wright, a virulent anti-Semite, anti-white, anti-America demagogue.
Therefore I am not surprised that a compromised ADL lends its name to assist in fulfilling the agenda of the progressive communist democrats in attacking their enemies. In this instance, partnering with PayPal to defund enemies of the Obama/Biden regime by fighting against faux “extremism, hate, and bigotry.”
PayPal Partners with ADL to Fight Extremism and Protect Marginalized Communities
PayPal Holdings, in partnership with ADL (the Anti-Defamation League), today announced a new partnership initiative to fight extremism and hate through the financial industry and across at-risk communities. This is the latest effort by PayPal in combating racism, hate and extremism across its platforms and the industry.
Through this collaboration, PayPal and ADL have launched a research effort to address the urgent need to understand how extremist and hate movements throughout the U.S. are attempting to leverage financial platforms to fund criminal activity. The intelligence gathered through this research initiative will be shared broadly across the financial industry and with policymakers and law enforcement.
[OCS: Understanding the code words – research is little more than domestic spying on the financial affairs and activities of law-abiding Americans. In many cases, using a private company to gather “intelligence” which the government is prohibited by law from performing. One of the key indicators of a fascistic government.]
"All of us, including in the private sector, have a critical role to play in fighting the spread of extremism and hate. With this new initiative, we're setting a new standard for companies to bring their expertise to critical social issues," said Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO, ADL. "We have a unique opportunity to further understand how hate spreads and develop key insights that will inform the efforts of the financial industry, law enforcement, and our communities in mitigating extremist threats."
[OCS: I find it disingenuous that the Obama/Biden Administration quickly labels conservatives and right-leaning groups as perceived extremist threats while totally ignoring actual extremist threats from the left like communist organizations Antifa and Black Lives Matter.]
Core to the PayPal and ADL initiative is the establishment and expansion of a coalition with other civil rights partner organizations, such as the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), to protect marginalized communities against extremism. PayPal and ADL will work closely with these organizations to share trends in extremism and hate with marginalized and vulnerable communities with the goal of helping to empower and safeguard those communities which are frequently targets of hate groups and extremist acts.
[OCS: LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) is a socialist organization supporting un-American values such as open borders, amnesty, universal healthcare for all (including illegal aliens) and shares much of the radical progressive communist democrat agenda. They do not support conservative values and label criticisms against their agenda as “hate speech.” Many of the other self-described “civil rights organizations” are radical groups having little to do with civil rights.
If one were to be intellectually honest, illegal aliens have no constitutional rights and, in many cases, are excused from criminal activities that would send an American citizen to jail.]
You should note that PayPal has a history of illegally converting the assets of its users to its own benefit with little or no explanation or resolution. Not to mention banning payment processing services to legal entities engaged in legal activities such as conservative websites, those who sell merchandise with political messaging, and legal weapons sales by licensed dealers, etc.
Most of the categories are self-explanatory and justified, while others are vague and ill-defined to allow PayPal to disrupt businesses based on “political” complaints.
You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:
- violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.
- relate to transactions involving (a) narcotics, steroids, certain controlled substances or other products that present a risk to consumer safety, (b) drug paraphernalia, (c) cigarettes, (d) items that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity, (e) stolen goods including digital and virtual goods, (f) the promotion of hate, violence, racial or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory or the financial exploitation of a crime, (g) items that are considered obscene, (h) items that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity or privacy or any other proprietary right under the laws of any jurisdiction, (i) certain sexually oriented materials or services, (j) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories, or (k) certain weapons or knives regulated under applicable law.
- relate to transactions that (a) show the personal information of third parties in violation of applicable law, (b) support pyramid or Ponzi schemes, matrix programs, other "get rich quick" schemes or certain multi-level marketing programs, (c) are associated with purchases of annuities or lottery contracts, lay-away systems, off-shore banking or transactions to finance or refinance debts funded by a credit card, (d) are for the sale of certain items before the seller has control or possession of the item, (e) are by payment processors to collect payments on behalf of merchants, (f) are associated with the sale of traveler's checks or money orders, (g) involve currency exchanges or check cashing businesses, (h) involve certain credit repair, debt settlement services, credit transactions or insurance activities, or (i) involve offering or receiving payments for the purpose of bribery or corruption.
- involve the sales of products or services identified by government agencies to have a high likelihood of being fraudulent.
Free speech for me, but not for thee…
A classic example of the ADL’s political agenda can be easily seen. “The ADL has previously labeled prominent conservative commentators as bigots, referring to former MSNBC contributor Patrick Buchanan as an “unrepentant bigot” and accusing Fox News host Tucker Carlson in April of espousing “dangerous race-baiting, extreme rhetoric” and “classic white supremacist tropes.”
PayPal previously suspended service for organizations that funded travel expenses for those traveling to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 following the Capitol riots. The payment processor also banned conservative site Jihad Watch in August 2017 following violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. <Source>
I no longer recognize nor support the ADL.
For those freedom-loving Americans who do not want to accede to PayPal’s tyranny, might I suggest a look at STRIPE, a freedom-loving financial payment processor that provides software and application programming interfaces for e-commerce websites and mobile applications?
One needs to observe the relationship between the Obama/Biden Administration and Israel to know the ADL is in bed with the progressive communist democrats. It was Obama that openly insulted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and sent a cadre of Obamacons to help remove him from office.
We are so screwed when our civil rights institutions no longer fight for their constituency but for the progressive communist democrats.
