(Israel National News) Andrew Torba, the CEO of Gab — a free speech social media platform — which the Anti-Defamation League has repeatedly accused of allegedly promoting “hate speech” — pushed back against the ADL, accusing it of abusing its “Jewish privilege” as an unregistered foreign agent and propagandist for Israel:
On Tuesday, the Gab social media network sent an email out to members in response to demands by the ADL that the FBI probe the platform for allegedly allowing anti-Semitic content to be uploaded without restriction. The ADL also cited comments by Gab CEO Andrew Torba earlier this year against prior criticism from the ADL, in which Torba vowed never to censor comments on the platform.
“We will never bend to their demands and we will never censor legal 1A [First Amendment]-protected speech that hurts the ADL’s feelings,” Torba was quoted as saying. “Jesus is king.”
Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL chief and a former Obama administration official, called Torba’s response earlier this year “thinly veiled anti-Semitism.” “As our open letter makes clear, Gab is not moderating this extremist content, and their CEO seems to be encouraging users to upload it.”
Torba fired back Tuesday, writing to Gab users that the ADL enjoys “Jewish privilege”, and accused the organization of anti-Christian, anti-white bigotry. “I often wonder if this repeated pattern of the ADL smearing and attacking good Christian people as ‘anti-semitic’ is a result of their profound Christophobia or if it’s just merely an expression of their Jewish privilege,” Torba wrote. “Gab will never bend the knee to hateful extremist organizations like the ADL.”
Torba also accused the ADL of working as an unregistered foreign agent of the Israeli government. “The ADL is an anti-Christ, Anti-American, and Anti-White hate organization. They should be registered as a foreign agent under Foreign Agents Registration Act for their operation in the United States on behalf of foreign interests in Israel.”
Established in 2016 and opened to the general public a year later, Gab was promoted as a censorship free alternative to Facebook and Twitter. The platform came to national attention in 2018, when it was revealed that Robert Gregory Bowers, the gunman responsible for the deadly shooting attack at a Pittsburgh synagogue, had hinted at the shooting in a post uploaded to Gab shortly before the attack.
Based on his comments about the ADL, Torba sounds like many of our regular readers here of CFT.
Of course, the ADL worked hard to ignore and suppress an unpublished government report — submitted to Congress by the U.S. Department of Commerce — that contradicted any and all of the ADL’s false claims that online “hate speech” results in real life “hate crimes” — especially about so-called “White supremacists.“
And while there is no doubt that the Anti-Defamation League is an out-spoken and unapologetic mouthpiece and defender of the foreign state of Israel, the U.S. State Department will never require them to register as agents of Israel because of their “Jewish privilege” established during the JFK administration.
Back in 1962-63, then-Attorney General, Robert Kennedy attempted to force the American Zionist Council — the precursor to the American-Israeli Political Action Committe (AIPAC) — to register as a foreign agent of Israel.
At that time, Senator J. William Fullbright’s investigation had uncovered massive amounts of Zionist lobbying money pouring into American Jewish organizations — like the AZC and ADL — but the murder of John Kennedy in 1963 put an end to this scandal, and any U.S. opposition to Israel’s quest to develop a nuclear arsenal.
Of course, the Mossad and Zionist groups in America never forgave Robert Kennedy for exposing and opposing them — and they made sure he would never become president and reopen the investigation into his brother’s murder — or the Israeli hand in it.
