A coalition that holds more than 1,500 Orthodox Jewish rabbis has condemned the words and actions of the Anti-Defamation League, after the organisation called for Fox News to sack popular show host Tucker Carlson, accusing him of embracing a ‘white supremacist and anti-Semitic’ theory.
The Coalition for Jewish Values published an open letter to the ADL, urging the left-wing group to drop their ‘partisan preoccupations’ so they can ‘urgently undertake a course correction.’
What did Carlson actually do?
The ADL’s outrage against Tucker Carlson, on this occasion, is down to a segment he presented during his show last Thursday.
He opened the segment by first accusing the left to be the ‘little gatekeepers’ of Twitter and all other social media platforms, before mocking the hysteria they enter into if someone, mainly on the right, accuses the Democratic party of wanting and trying to import new voters from the ‘Third World’ in order to stay in power.
In this case, Carlson would be correct, given the love for amnesty for illegal immigrants that the Democratic party, including President Joe Biden, currently display.
Amnesty for all illegals would mean that those who crossed over into the country without the necessary documentation would be forgiven and offered a pathway to citizenship, before being afforded the right to vote in state and federal elections.
The concerns of Carlson and many others on the right are valid, as those illegals who would become citizens under the plan drafted up the Democrats would be extremely likely to vote for the party that forgave their crimes, hence, importing a completely new voter base to maintain power.
However, the ADL believe this theory to be rooted in white supremacy and anti-Semitism, as ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt accused the show host of embracing the theory on the network.
He claims that white supremacists and anti-Semites use this theory, known as the ‘Great Replacement,’ to attack Jews and others, accusing them of importing a set of racial minorities from across the world to replace the white population.
However, on a follow-up show on Monday, Carlson dismissed the white supremacist theory, instead opting to label the idea of voter importation as a ‘voting rights questions,’ something which the ADL continued to attack him over.
In response to the accusations of racism and anti-Semitism being made against Tucker Carlson, the CJV responded to Greenblatt’s claims, condemning the organisation and its CEO of ‘grossly misplaced charges of anti-Semitism.’
Yaakov Menken, the Managing Director of the CJV, claimed that the comments made by Greenblatt and the ADL actually proved Carlson to be correct in his theory.
He echoes Carlson’s words regarding the left acting hysterical on social media if the word ‘replacement’ was ever mentioned, which is exactly the reaction given by Greenblatt and the ADL.
Menken states that, by putting his own ‘partisan political agenda ahead of neutral judgment’ on anti-Semitism, Greenblatt actually proved the words of Carlson and of the CJV to be true.
The ADL has been an ally to the Coalition for Jewish Values for quite some time, yet their ‘knee-jerk’ reaction against Tucker Carlson and those on the right proves that the partisan leadership of Greenblatt is sending the organisation down a leftist spiral to which there will be no return.
