No ADL, No Hate Crime Laws
By Rev. Ted Pike

The Anti-Defamation League is not backing down from its outrageous claim that millions of Americans are conspiring against Obama! ADL’s recent report, Rage in America: Anti-Government Conspiracies, claims millions of anti-Obama Americans, consumed with "toxic rage," will say almost anything necessary to bring the President down.
But spokeswoman Myrna Shinbaum says the backlash against ADL is simply a misunderstanding: “The comments are coming from people who have not read the report…They’re reacting to the media spin and not its substance.” (Jewish Telegraph Agency, -Conservatives Rap ADL Report on Anti-Government Anger, Dec. 1)
What “media” is misrepresenting ADL? It’s certainly not the mainstream liberal media that usually works in lockstep to give ADL initiatives maximum publicity. With only a handful of exceptions, the media has said nothing, pro or con, about Rage in America. Why? Big media is embarrassed by ADL. If its claim that millions of Americans are conspirators were not so sinister, it would be laughable.
The “media” to which Shinbaum refers is a string of recent articles: Jonathan Tobin in Commentary, Joseph Farah in WorldNetDaily, Rev. Ted Pike at www.truthtellers.org, Joel Sprayregen in American Thinker, and Rabbi Nachum Shifren in NewsWithViews. These commentaries—now viral online—have probably embarrassed ADL more than anything since the 1988 Spotlight expose of ADL’s illegal surveillance of over 10,000 unsuspecting Americans. (See my video, Hate Laws: Making Criminals of Christians at truthtellers.org for complete documentation.)
But ADL is unrepentant. It has an agenda and schedule to keep—persecuting Christians and conservatives under its hate crime laws worldwide.
In a recent fund-raising appeal, ADL national director Abe Foxman complained of a worldwide “explosion of anti-Semitism that is shocking in its intensity and unprecedented in its reach into the mainstream.” ADL wants to bull its way forward, persuading all nations of the world to criminalize any criticism of matters Jewish. The cleverest legal means is their brainchild: hate crimes laws.
To eventually imprison enormous numbers of those who oppose ADL’s new world order, ADL must prepare the public to view Christian conservatives as anti-Semitic and violence-prone. This has begun with ADL’s Office of Global Anti-Semitism in the US State Department. In its latest report to Congress, the Office says “classic anti-Semites” include at least 100 million Christians who affirm the New Testament account that the Jews masterminded the crucifixion of Christ. (See U.S. State Department Says New Testament is ‘Anti-Semitic’?) This is an extremely threatening charge by the U.S. government against Bible-believing Americans and Christians everywhere. In Canada, it is a hate crime to publicly state that the Jews were responsible for Christ’s death. It is punishable by a minimum fine of $5,000 and prison if the offense is repeated.
For the past five years, ADL has united 56 nations of Europe into an “anti-hate” confederation (the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, OSCE) dedicated to ending “homophobia,” xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and ultimately free speech online. Yet in a recent report, ADL laments that its European hate law agenda is not progressing as rapidly as planned. At last month’s OSCE conference in Warsaw, ADL berated member states for failing to vigorously enact and enforce more hate laws. It also criticized them for neglecting to gather statistics ADL can dramatize as proving that an "epidemic of hate" exists in Europe, necessitating even more hate laws. ADL calls this year’s OSCE report a “revealing portrait of the failure of too many governments to recognize the unique problem of hate crime.” “The League’s analysis of the data found that a total of 23 governments failed to gather hate crime data or make it publicly available. ADL also highlighted nine countries that reported fewer than 10—and in some cases zero—hate crimes. Only eight of the 56 governments submitted information…on incidents of anti-Semitism.” (See Global Hate Crimes Gestapo Being Created)
It may well be that some political leaders in recalcitrant countries not under the strictest ADL control are gradually awakening to the dangers of hate laws through hearing the horror stories of hate law persecution in other nations. They also may be receiving a comprehensive education on the twisted reasoning, abuses, and ultimate conspiracy of ADL hate laws from the premier international site opposing hate laws, www.truthtellers.org.
ADL’s participation in every aspect of a hate crimes bureaucracy is vital to creating ADL’s ideal: a totally repressive Gestapo, mercilessly indicting dissident speech in a manner that is fiercely punitive. This is what ADL’s northern branches, B’nai B’rith Canada and the Canadian Jewish Congress, have brought to Canada since 1971, when ADL’s hate law was passed — after a decade of ADL lobbying. Running Canada’s hate bureaucracy has been entirely their project — one which they direct at every stage and of which they are immensely and very publicly proud.
How to Kill America’s Hate Law
What is the most effective way to keep America’s new ADL hate law from being enforced? It’s simple. The more credibility ADL loses—as happened in the last two weeks—the harder it will be for the League to persuade the government to pursue hate crime indictments. If ADL’s credibility is destroyed, hate laws will become unenforceable. In America, virtually no one but ADL cares about sending Christians and conservatives to prison as “anti-Semites” and “homophobic” hate criminals. Without ADL management of hate crime bureaucracies and orchestration of prosecution, even the militant homosexual lobby will have to be content to coexist with the Christian community rather than prosecute it. (Despite ADL propaganda, the heterosexual majority has not tended toward hateful violence against homosexuals.)
The most practical, attainable way to pull the teeth of the new federal hate law is not through legal action, supplicating liberal judges to declare it unconstitutional. They may actually be delighted to receive such appeals and use them to uphold the Constitutionality of the hate law and even broaden it to cover verbal violence against sodomites.
The most direct way to neutralize the hate bill is to destroy, by every truthful means, the reputation of the Anti-Defamation League. Tens of thousands of patriots should tell as many as possible about ADL’s 96-year record of subverting America’s values and freedoms.
An excellent way to start is for groups, especially churches, college clubs and political organizations, to view my 82-minute video Hate Laws: Making Criminals of Christians at www.truthtellers.org. This fast-moving, easily understood documentary presents the history of ADL, particularly how it took away free speech in Canada. It also reveals how, through influencing US legislative bodies as well as policies of the US justice system, it intends to end freedom in America.
Despite its staggering international power and immediate threat to very high profile potential critics, such as Glenn Beck, Joseph Farah, Michael Savage, etc., never in ADL’s history has the average citizen been more secure from ADL’s smear, "Anti-Semite!" This is a unique time because ADL faces a myriad of what it considers anti-Semitic attacks, especially on the internet and in the United Nations. It simply cannot diversify to individually assault thousands of grassroots Americans, who can speak out.
Do you still think you can’t make a difference in dismantling ADL’s power? Consider this anecdote from nature. Once in our garden, I heard a tremendous commotion of scornful cries from little birds. A hawk had just pounced on one of them. Instantly, chickadees, wrens, robins and jays mobbed him, mercilessly berating the raptor at close range. The hawk panicked and flew away, leaving his victim unharmed. Each bird alone was a potential meal. Yet acting together, overwhelming the hawk with protest, the small birds prevailed.
Do you have the courage of a chickadee?
Thousands of Americans, grieved by the specter of a national hate crimes bureaucracy being set up in America, can unite to tarnish ADL. Then, what may be happening in many OSCE countries will happen in America. Without a credible ADL goading the Attorney General, FBI and police against Christian "hate criminals," the federal hate law will become a despised relic of legislative history—rusting and decrepit like monuments of the former Soviet Union.
The people will never allow it to be used against them.
