The Anti-Defamation League—previously slated to lead the “anti-racist” training at Starbucks following a recent made-up “racial” incident in Philadelphia—has been booted from the program over that organization’s blatant hypocrisy in supporting the racially-based state of Israel while demanding “non-racialism” from gentiles.
A campaign to boot the ADL from the Starbucks “anti-bias” training launched by the far left has been successful. Above, the meme they used in their online campaign.
The “anti-bias” training was announced following an incident when two non-paying blacks squatting in a coffee shop located in crime-ridden majority nonwhite Philadelphia were arrested after staff called police, saying they were trespassing.
A report in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) said that the Anti-Defamation League’s Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Greenblatt, was one of four “civil rights leaders” tasked with developing Starbucks’ “anti-bias training” next month, but would “no longer taking a leading role.”
The other three “three civil rights leaders” were named as Sherrilyn Ifill of the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund, Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative and Heather McGhee off the liberal think tank Demos
On April 17, Starbucks issued a press statement saying that the “anti-bias traiign” will be “developed with guidance from several national and local experts confronting racial bias, including Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative; Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund; Heather McGhee, president of Demos; former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder; and Jonathan Greenblatt, ceo of the Anti-Defamation League. Starbucks will involve these experts in monitoring and reviewing the effectiveness of the measures we undertake.”
However, a press release from Starbucks issued on April 26 said that the program will now only be run by the Stevenson, Ifill,and McGhee, and that the ADL will only be one of “a diverse array of organizations and civil rights experts” that Starbucks will consult.
According to the JTA, “Greenblatt’s original role was criticized by left wing activists who objected to, among other things, ADL’s work with police departments and its support of Israel.
According to a press statement issued by JVP, that organization “welcomes the clear decision by Starbucks to remove the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) from leadership in this initiative, and to seek guidance from organizations who serve directly impacted communities, including Muslims, LGBTQ people, Latinx communities and immigrants, who are under threat in our country.
“The demotion of the ADL from a leadership role is a clear reflection of the recognition by a wide variety of social justice organizations and individuals that the ADL’s status as a civil rights organization is compromised given its history and practices of anti-Muslim, anti-Palestinian, and anti-Black racism,” said Rebecca Vilkomerson, Executive Director of JVP.
“JVP is particularly concerned with collaborations between U.S. and Israeli police and military forces – and their impacts on Palestinians there and all people of color here.
“In just a week, we’ve noticed and welcomed the increased scrutiny of the ADL’s sponsorship of those police exchanges, and the growing recognition that those exchanges are incompatible with a vision of safety for all.
“Any organization working for civil rights should know that militarized policing is a huge problem that overwhelmingly affects communities of color,” the JVP statement said.
While the JVP is no friend of white people, and therefore just as much an enemy to them as is the ADL, the fact that the far left has now started to see through the overt hypocrisy of the Jewish establishment is a good sign that the edifice of Jewish Supremacism is starting to crack.
