Quickie

Long time no post!

My thoughts on the media theories of the Holocaust Museum tragedy are here. If you can think of any other scapegoats that should be added to the list, let me know.

And the two craziest theories of David Carradine's death I've heard so far are here.

I'm having a hard time deciding which set of theories is crazier.

I'm actually no fan of the ADL either. They're ranked probably in the top 5 in the world for the "easiest to offend."

They were actually caught spying on other groups and giving that info to the US government. This isn't conspiracy theory either. In 1993, the DA of San Francisco busted them in the act.

Get this, they were not only spying on Arab-Americans, but also the NAACP and several labor unions. Now, I can understand why the ADL would be caught spying on Arabs - Arabs and Jews hate each other. But the NAACP? Well, that's just ridiculous.

So in other words, screw the ADL. They keep saying "never again" but it's only never again when Jews are the victims. Note how silent they were when the genocides were going on in Darfur and what was happening to the Tutsis.

So my question - does the ADL hate black people?

Easily offended, yes. Occasionally unethical, yes. Sometimes overzealous, yes. Psychotically homicidal, probably not.

My whole point is that Jones has not one iota of evidence that the ADL had any involvement whatsoever with the museum shooting or the other things he has blamed on them, yet he flies into screaming tantrums when Glenn Beck makes similarly unfounded comments about Truthers. Chutzpah.

I don't know how the ADL feels about black people, but there've been a lot of bad feelings between blacks and Jews in the U.S. over the years. Jesse Jackson really didn't help.
