Jonathan Greenblatt, the National Director and CEO of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), who spread the rumor that Trump appointee, Steve Bannon was an antisemite has worked for George Soros and Barack Obama. In fact, before joining the ADL, Greenblatt had almost no experience in fighting antisemitism. Greenblatt moved directly from the Obama administration to his position at the ADL. He had worked for Obama as Director of the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation. Prior to that, he worked for Soros as Director of the Impact Economy Initiative at the George Soros-funded Aspen Institute.
His accusations have fallen apart after Jewish leaders and Breitbart employees described Bannon as staunchly pro-Israel and the ADL itself admitted that it knows of nothing Bannon has ever said or done that is antisemitic. In fact, no one anywhere has been able to show such proof. It’s just another part of the liberal campaign to try to stop Trump from being successful and putting an end to the liberal cause forever.
Greenblatt’s ADL bio shows little experience for the post he now holds:
He managed real estate and later co-founded a socially conscience business venture, Ethos Brands, which sold bottled water while donating part of the profits to clean water programs. The company was later sold to Starbucks and Greenblatt became a vice president of the giant coffee shop conglomerate. He later served as head of GOOD media company and founded the not-for-profit All for Good, an Internet platform connecting volunteers with organizations seeking help. Greenblatt also taught social entrepreneurship at UCLA.
Discover the Networks reports on Aspen’s (SOROS) mission thusly:
Encompassing a broad range of issues, many of AI’s policy-work programs are rooted in the belief that the United States is a nation whose history amounts largely to an unbroken narrative of injustice; that government intervention frequently represents the best remedy for social and economic problems; and that America’s deep-seated “structural racism,” while “harder to see than its previous incarnations,” is just as likely as its forerunner to “perpetuate racial group inequity.”
Aspen defines “structural racism,” which it contends continues to impact the U.S., as:
A system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity. It identifies dimensions of our history and culture that have allowed privileges associated with “whiteness” and disadvantages associated with “color” to endure and adapt over time. Structural racism is not something that a few people or institutions choose to practice. Instead it has been a feature of the social, economic and political systems in which we all exist.
An Aspen blog post regarding the Institute’s “Roundtable on Community Change” contends:
From both historical and contemporary standpoints, whites have possessed advantages in all of the principal opportunity domains for a long time, including education, employment, housing, health care, political representation, and media influence. It has accumulated into an understanding among whites (and perhaps others) that “whiteness is the ‘default setting’ for race in America” and that it is the “assumed color” of our nation.
