The ADL declared war on Elon Musk for anti-Semitism on Twitter – yet was silent about its former management choosing to enable “America’s Most Popular Anti-Semite” for more than eleven years

.

New title: “The ADL’s fraudulent war against Twitter, Part 1: The Farrakhan Factor”

The big 3:

  • In November 2022, the ADL instigated a war against Twitter, eight days after Elon Musk took ownership of it, allegedly based on its “profound concern about antisemitism and hate on the platform.”  The ADL’s public rhetoric clearly insinuated that this situation was created by Musk — and urged advertisers in the US and beyond to boycott Twitter, to “stop hate for profit,” and “stop toxic Twitter.”
  • If the ADL’s “concerns” about antisemitism and hate on Twitter were so “profound,” then why did it never condemn Twitter’s previous management — or call for advertisers to boycott it — for choosing to enable the man that it (the ADL) deems “America’s Most Popular Anti-Semite,” Louis Farrahan… for eleven years? And why was the ADL silent even after three of Farrakhan’s reported followers went on racist murder sprees, soon Twitter’s previous management allowed him to post videos that explicitly called for racist violence? And why was it silent as Twitter allowed one of these videos to remain posted, for the next six years, and to amass nearly 400,000 views?
  • These are but some of the facts that reveal the fraudulent nature of the ADL’s war against Twitter/X and Elon Musk.  This fraud is further validated by the words of the ADL’s CEO himself, in October 2015, when he said the following in the Washington Post: “[M]any people of good will seem to be willing to ignore or overlook Farrakhan’s hate speech, dismissing it as tangential to his main messages. That is a mistake. As a society, we ignore such hate at our peril.” He was absolutely correct. But as this report shows, the ADL itself was Farrakhan’s biggest passive enabler, by refusing to condemn Twitter’s previous management for enabling him… since 2011.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) claims its mission is “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” This claim, plus the fact that hatred and hate crimes against Jews in America and the West are skyrocketing, serve as the pretext upon which the ADL collects more than $62 million a year in donations.

On November 4, 2022, eight days after Elon Musk took control of Twitter, the ADL publicly declared war against him and the site, allegedly because of its allegedly “profound concern about antisemitism and hate on the platform.” The ADL further alleged that this situation was caused by Musk “gutting staff that supported combating antisemitism and hate.” On this basis, the ADL openly called for advertisers to “stop hate for profit,” and “stop toxic Twitter,” by halting advertising on the platform “globally.”

Hours after the ADL launched its war, Twitter’s (Jewish) Director of Trust and Safety publicly rebutted its central allegation, claiming “our core moderation capabilities remain in place.” One week later, on November 11, 2022, he published an editorial in The NY Times, expanding: “Twitter [is] actually safer under Mr. Musk than it was before,” and that “[he] empowered my team to move more aggressively to remove hate speech across the platform — censoring more content, not less. Our actions worked.” Despite this, the ADL neither apologized to Twitter/Musk, nor stopped its war to destroy his site. To the contrary, eleven days later the ADL posted a Tweet in which it proclaimed itself “the global leader in combating antisemitism, countering extremism and battling bigotry.”

Thanks to the virtually unchallenged prestige that the ADL has enjoyed for many years, the mainstream media, major advertisers and governmental agencies assume that whatever the it says is highly credible, and based on verifiable, contextual evidence. Thus, the ADL’s incendiary allegations against Twitter and Musk had perceived legitimacy the moment they were expressed, which is what caused them to metastasize throughout our culture, without substantive criticism or analysis.

On September 4, 2023, Musk announced the severe toll that the ADL’s war against Twitter has taken — and his intent to sue the group. In a series of Tweets, Musk declared:

  • Twitter’s advertising revenue is down 60%, and it’s lost approximately half* of its value (*which he pegged at $22 billion)
  • “Based on what we’ve heard from advertisers, [the] ADL seems to be responsible for most of our revenue loss”
  • “To clear our platform’s name on the matter of anti-Semitism, it looks like we have no choice but to file a defamation lawsuit against the Anti-Defamation League … oh the irony!”

The purpose of this investigative report is to expose the fraudulent nature of the ADL’s war against Twitter/X, which is a de facto war against Elon Musk.  Each allegation is based on, and links to evidence contained in a separate, detailed resource page (here).

In summary:

  • For many years, the ADL has documented and publicly denounced Louis Farrakhan‘s incitement of anti-Semitic, racist and anti-LGBT hatred. In 2020 (two years before it declared war on Twitter) the ADL designated Farrakhan “America’s Most Popular Anti-Semite.”  Its CEO has also openly denounced Farrakhan’s public calls for violence. Evidence here.
  • In 2015 and 2016, Twitter’s previous management allowed Farrakhan to post a series of videos in which he openly incited racist violence. Less than five hours after Farrakhan uploaded such a video directly to Twitter, one of his reported followers went on a racist murder spree, that cost the lives of five Texas police officers. This correlation was documented by one of the most widely-read conservative websites in America. Within the next year, two more of Farrakhan’s reported followers also went on racist murder sprees, the first of which occurred only ten days later. Evidence here.
  • In 2018, after enabling Farrakhan to post a series of virulently anti-Semitic Tweets, the site’s management publicly stated its intent to keep enabling him (and thus profiting by doing so, as he had more than 300,000 followers). Evidence here.
  • In spite of these facts, the ADL has never published a single Tweet — or item on its website — that denounced Twitter’s previous management for publicly declaring its decision to continue enabling the man it declared “America’s Most Popular Anti-Semite” since March 2011. Nor did the ADL ever publicly call for an advertiser boycott of the site, because of this decision. Evidence here.
  • Further, the ADL never publicly condemned Twitter’s previous management for allowing the racist violence-inciting video that Farrakhan uploaded to the site to remain publicly accessible for the next six years, by which time it had amassed nearly 400,000 views. In fact, the ADL never reported or commented on these three racist murder sprees, the perpetrators’ reported admiration for Farrakhan, at all — anywhere. Evidence here.
  • Instead, during the ten months following its declaration of war on Musk/Twitter, the ADL instigated campaigns that have zero to do with combating anti-Semitism — including one to destroy an orthodox Jewish blogger who dares to oppose young children being subjected to leftist political and LGBT gender indoctrination. Further, the ADL did this while knowing that several months earlier, this blogger and her family were subjected to death threats and in-person harassment, after the Washington Post publicly revealed her actual identity (behind her screen name).  Soon after, they fled their homes in terror.  As if this wasn’t bad enough, the ADL is also suspected of heavily petitioning Twitter’s previous management to ban her (which it did) — while mounting no similar campaign to finally ban Farrakhan. Evidence here.

These are some of the facts that the American people and major advertisers should be aware of, in order to rationally evaluate:

  • The war that the ADL instigated against Twitter/X and Elon Musk
  • The ADL’s overall credibility and integrity, in regards to its claim to be the world’s premier Jewish civil rights organization

(8) Topics to be covered in future reports


(1) The ADL self-identifies as the world’s top fighter for the Jewish people

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL.org) claims its mission is:

“To stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”

Elsewhere, the ADL has publicly declared that it is the world’s premier, completely nonpartisan, fighter for the Jewish people:

“We are the global leader in combating antisemitism, countering extremism and battling bigotry(source; archive)

“The ADL has been a fearless defender of the Jewish people for 110 years, standing up against white supremacists, staunch anti-Zionists, and others seeking to undermine us.” (source; archive)

“ADL deliberately avoids partisanship. ADL calls out antisemitism on both the left and the right. We are principled and nonpartisan, and we will not be daunted by those who seek to criticize us or attempt to portray us as being tainted by politics.” (source; archive)

“We speak out against all forms of antisemitism and hate especially when propagated by some of the most high-profile people in the world.” (source; archive)

“For more than 100 years, ADL has been committed to fighting #antisemitism and ensuring the security of the Jewish community” (source; archive)

And in regards to social media, the ADL postures itself as being willing to stand up to any entity that spreads hatred of Jews, regardless of their political or religious affiliation:

“[T]he rampant spread of hate on mainstream social media is out of control. Regardless of whether someone is a political actor or a violent white supremacist, platforms should not be supplying the megaphone for hate and antisemitism.” (source; archive)

On the pretext that it is the absolute tip-0f-the-spear in defending Jews, in 2021 the ADL collected more than $62 million in donations from foundations and individuals.

The ADL claims that such donations are urgently needed, to help advance its work during an era of skyrocketing anti-Semitic hatred and violence. As you review the following data, keep in mind that more Jews live in New York City than anywhere in the world, outside of Israel:

  • 2023: Data from the first five months of 2023 shows Jews were far and away the #1 target of hate crimes in NYC, with more than 20 hate crimes against Jews for every one that’s reported against Muslims.

  • 2022: Hate crimes against Jews in NYC jumped by 275% – in one year.
  • 2022: Anti-Semitic incidents in France jumped 75% – in one year.
  • 2019: The ADL recorded more than 2,100 cases of assault, vandalism and harassment against Jews across the U.S., the most since tracking began in 1979.
  • 2020: Hate crimes against Jewish students on U.S. college campuses reached an all-time high.

Much of this hatred is driven by widespread acceptance and rapid metastasis of mind-boggling lies about the lone Jewish nation, Israel, and its efforts to protect her people from the terrorist regime on her borders:

  • 2023: 40% of Americans now believe the statement, “Israel treats Palestinians like the Nazis treated Jews,” is accurate.

It is within this context that the ADL has become the de facto perceived “tip of the spear” in fighting for the Jewish people, and is the first entry on most news organizations’ speed-dials regarding related issues.  It is, by far, the single most influential and most-quoted Jewish nonprofit, and whatever it says about itself, and others, is generally viewed as being highly credible, and presumably based on verifiable, contextual evidence.

Further, the ADL insists it is completely nonpartisan, and that it “combats this hate [anti-Semitism] wherever, however, & whenever it appears”

The reality about the ADL, as this report demonstrates, is very different.


(2) The ADL declared war on Twitter eight days after Elon Musk took control of it, alleging that he’d unleashed unprecedented anti-Semitism and hate on the site, and urging an advertiser boycott

On November 4, 2022 — eight days after Elon Musk took ownership of Twitter — the ADL posted a Tweet thread that opened with the claim that “we are profoundly concerned about antisemitism and hate” on Twitter, and called for advertisers to boycott the site:

Deeper into that thread, the ADL claimed one of the reasons behind its campaign to get advertisers to boycott the site was its claim that Musk had “gutted” the “staff that supported combating antisemitism” on Twitter:

It is true that Musk ordered a mass layoff of Twitter employees — including moderators, because of their dysfunction, and the many irrational decisions he asserted they’d made, which prompted him to buy the site in the first place.

Soon after the ADL published these Tweets (on November 4), Twitter’s top executive of moderation, Yoel Roth, posted a Tweet that said, “our core moderation capabilities remain in place,” thus obliterating the ADL’s claim:

Then, on November 11, Roth published an editorial at the New York Times that completed his obliteration of the ADL’s assertion, by claiming “Twitter was actually safer under Mr. Musk than it was before”:

“Mr. Musk empowered my team to move more aggressively to remove hate speech across the platform — censoring more content, not less. Our actions worked: Before my departure, I shared data about Twitter’s enforcement of hateful conduct, showing that by some measures, Twitter was actually safer under Mr. Musk than it was before.”

The ADL neither retracted nor apologized for its false accusation against Musk.

Instead, on November 22, 2022 — eighteen days after it declared war on Twitter — the ADL publicly proclaimed itself to be the global leader in combating antisemitism, countering extremism and battling bigotry (source; archive archive), perhaps to counter the substantive criticisms being leveled about its hyper-politicization, hypocrisy and double-standards:

The ADL has maintained its stance that under Elon Musk’s direction, Twitter/X has become an unprecedented hellhole of anti-Semitism:

“We have determined detractors, enemies, and individuals who harbor animosity toward the Jewish people and the Jewish state. But what sets this situation [with Twitter/X] apart is that the wealthiest individual in the world, the owner of one of the most influential media platforms on the planet, has been amplifying and expanding the reach of these detractors and enemies. That’s deeply concerning.”

– Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO, September 21, 2023


(3) The war the ADL instigated against Musk/Twitter was based on lies and egregious double-standards. One example proves this fact: For more than eleven years, the ADL was silent about Twitter’s former management choosing to enable the man it claims is “America’s Most Popular Anti-Semite” — Louis Farrakhan

Many people have never heard of Louis Farrakhan.  This includes people with significant power and influence, such as those in leadership roles in our government, major public corporations, educational institutions and media entities.

The ADL has known for many years that Farrakhan has been America’s most influential inciter of hatred against Jews, as indicated in this report. Yet as of September 18, 2023, the ADL – the “global leader in fighting anti-Semitism”

Without a functional understanding of Farrakhan and his history, one cannot grasp the monstrous fraud that the ADL perpetrated, in:

  • Saying nothing on Twitter or its website (ADL.org) about the fact that Twitter’s previous management has been profiting by choosing to enable him — for more than eleven years
  • Instigating its November 2022 war to destroy Twitter, over its allegation that Elon Musk unleashed unprecedented anti-Semitism and hate on the platform — eight days after he took control of it

The following is organized as a step-by-step, evidence-driven, plain-language, layperson’s brief introduction to Farrakhan, the bloodshed his reported followers perpetrated soon after his incitement, the fact that Twitter’s previous management openly declared its policy to continue enabling him — and the proof of the ADL’s silence regarding these issues:

(1) Introducing Louis Farrakhan: America’s most influential inciter of anti-Semitic, racist and anti-LGBT hatred and violence

(2) Knowing who and what he is, Twitter’s previous management allowed Farrakhan to establish an account, in March 2011

(3) 2016-17: At least three of Farrakhan’s reported followers went on racist murder sprees, soon after Twitter’s previous management allowed him to upload a racist violence-inciting video — the first one, less than five hours later

(4) 2018: Twitter’s previous management publicly declared its commitment to continue enabling Farrakhan

(5) 2020: The ADL declared Farrakhan is “America’s Most Popular Anti-Semite” — yet it never posted a Tweet containing this designation

(6) Despite all this, the ADL never posted a single Tweet, or item on its website, denouncing Twitter’s previous management for choosing to enable Farrakhan, or calling for advertisers to boycott the site — for more than eleven years

(7) Nor did the ADL say a word about Twitter’s previous management allowing Farrakhan to upload an explicit racist-violence incitement video, on July 7, 2016 — or the three racist murder sprees that his reported followers embarked on, the first of which occurred less than five hours later


(3)(1) Introducing Louis Farrakhan: America’s most influential inciter of anti-Semitic, racist and anti-LGBT hatred

Numerous watchdogs including the Anti-Defamation League, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Snopes, the Jewish Virtual Library, and the Creative Community for Peace have created extensive documentation about Louis Farrakhan, and his:

(A) Incitement of anti-Semitic hatred

(B) Incitement of racist hatred

(C) Incitement of hatred against the LGBT community


(A) Farrakhan’s incitement of anti-Semitic hatred

For a quick introduction, see the video: “Farrakhan’s Greatest Hits”

“Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out, turning men into women and women into men…. White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled a cover off of that Satanic Jew, and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through!”

February 28, 2018 sermon

“Those who call themselves ‘Jews,’ who are not really Jews, but are in fact Satan: You should learn to call them by their real name, ‘Satan’; you are coming face-to-face with Satan, the Arch Deceiver, the enemy of God and the enemy of the Righteous.”

February 2017 sermon

“In 100 years, [Jews have come to] control movies, television, recording, publishing, commerce, radio, they own it all!!!”

February 26, 2012 sermon

“They [Jews] are the greatest controllers of Black minds, Black intelligence […] They put us before the world as clowns and as purveyors of filth.”

October 18, 1998 interview on NBC “Meet The Press”

“The Jews have been so bad at politics they lost half their population in the Holocaust. They thought they could trust in Hitler, and they helped him get the Third Reich on the road.”

February 22, 1998 sermon

“[T]he Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”

March 11, 1984 press conference

“To the members of the Jewish community that don’t like me, thank you very much for putting my name all over the planet because of your fear of what we represent. I can go anywhere in the world and they’ve heard of Farrakhan. Thank you very much. I’m not mad at you because you’re so stupid. So when they [Jews] talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you do what they do, call me an anti-Semite. Stop it, I’m anti-Termite.”

October 14, 2018 speech

“Satanic Jews have infected the whole world with poison and deceit… [They] will lead you to filth and indecency. That’s who runs show business. That’s who runs the record industry. That’s who runs television.”

May 27, 2018 sermon


(B) Farrakhan’s incitement of racist hatred

“The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire.”

2016 sermon

White people are potential humans — they haven’t evolved yet.”

March 2000 sermon

“The white man is the devil.”

2004, cited by The Independent (UK)

“There is no freedom without the shedding of blood! […] When you are willing and not afraid anymore to pay the price for freedom — don’t let this white man tell you that violence is wrong! Every damn thing that he got, he got it by being violent — killing people, raping and robbing and murdering!”

July 7, 2016 (Note: Less than five hours after Farrakhan posted the video of him saying this, one of his followers went on a racist murder spree; see [SECTION].)


(C) Farrakhan’s incitement of hatred against the LGBT community

“God don’t like men coming to men with lust in their hearts like you should go to a female. … If you think that the kingdom of God is going to be filled up with that kind of degenerate crap, you’re out of your damn mind.”

1996 quote, cited by LGBT website The Advocate

“[T]hat wicked state of Israel — how can it be that it’s ‘The Holy Land,’ and you have gay parades, and want to permit to have a gay parade in Jerusalem when no prophet ever sanctioned that behavior? How can that be the Israel, how can that be Jerusalem with secular people running the holy land when it should be the holy people running the holy land. That land is gonna be cleansed with blood!”

February 26, 2006 sermon; source

“It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism [and]  homosexuality.”

February 26, 2006 sermon


(3)(2) Knowing who and what he is, Twitter’s previous management allowed Farrakhan to establish an account, in March 2011

See @LouisFarrakhan (archive). Note that as of November 2022, Twitter’s previous management allows him to amass nearly 400,000 followers (for comparison, the ADL only has 360,000).

For comparison, as of September 2023, the ADL only has 357,000 Twitter followers.


(3)(3) 2016-17: At least three of Farrakhan’s reported followers went on racist murder sprees, soon after Twitter’s previous management allowed him to upload a racist violence-inciting video — the first one, less than five hours later

It is important to note that eight months before the first of these murder sprees, Jonathan Greenblatt (then the national director of the ADL) publicly denounced his incitement of violence (emphasis added):

[Farrakhan] frequently has promoted hatred — and not just years ago, but in the weeks leading up to this march. At a promotional event in Milwaukee in August, Farrakhan said, “White people deserve to die, and they know, so they think it’s us coming to do it.” In July in Miami, he told a crowd, “If the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us, stalk them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.

But many people of good will seem to be willing to ignore or overlook Farrakhan’s hate speech, dismissing it as tangential to his main messages. That is a mistake. As a society, we ignore such hate at our peril.”

– Jonathan Greenblatt, “Louis Farrakhan’s pleas for justice are blunted by bigotry and calls to violence,” The Washington Post, October 8, 2015.

Clearly, Greenblatt knew exactly who and what Farrakhan is, and the potential for his followers to act on his incitement of violence.  Yet note that in his editorial, Greenblatt said nothing about Twitter choosing to enable, and profit from Farrakhan.

Recall that as documented in Section 2, the ADL instigated a war against Twitter only eight days after Elon Musk took control of the site, not just because it alleged he was enabling unprecedented anti-Semitism, but also “hate”:

On July 7, 2016, Twitter’s previous management went far beyond merely allowing Farrakhan to post his hatred on the site; instead, it enabled him to upload a video that implicitly called for his followers to engage in violence, based on his hatred.

To place what Twitter’s management did into correct time-context, it helps to consider two videos that Farrakhan posted to social media, less than one year earlier, in which publicly claimed, “White people deserve to die!” and urged his followers to “Rise up and kill those who kill us!”:

(1) July 30, 2015: “We must rise up and kill those who kill us!” (Miami, FL):

“We are not asking for justice, we are demanding justice,” The Final Call (the official newsletter of Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam), Aug 4, 2015. (Archive version)


(2) August 15, 2015: “White people deserve to die! They know!”: (details — from the ADL — are here):


July 7, 2016: Twitter’s previous management allowed Farrakhan to upload and post a video containing explicit racist violence incitement — and less than five hours later, one of his reported followers went on a racist murder spree

In this video, which Twitter was hosting (as opposed to merely allowing a link to a YouTube video to be posted), Farrakhan claimed:

“There is no freedom without the shedding of blood! […] When you are willing and not afraid anymore to pay the price for freedom — don’t let this white man tell you that violence is wrong! Every damn thing that he got, he got it by being violent — killing people, raping and robbing and murdering!”

Here’s the Tweet:

In case Twitter finally removes this video, an archived version is here:

Note that Farrakhan’s Tweet was posted at 4:10 PM.

Less than five hours later, at 8:58 PM, one of his reported followers, Micah Xavier Johnson, went on a racist murder spree that cost five Texas police officers their lives (and left seven wounded).


Micah Xavier Johnson

Micah Xavier Johnson

On July 7, 2016, Micah Xavier Johnson, began firing at Dallas, TX police officers, because he allegedly said “he wanted to kill white people, especially police officers.”

Dallas Shooting Suspect Micah Xavier Johnson Had Rifles, Bombmaking Materials in His Home, Police Say – ABC News, July 9, 2016. Excerpts:

The suspected gunman in an attack on police officers in Dallas — which left five cops dead and seven injured — had bombmaking materials, ballistic vests and rifles in his house, police said.

The news from police came as police pieced together the background on the suspect, 25-year-old Micah Xavier Johnson, in the ambush-style shooting Thursday night. […]

During the overnight standoff that led to his death, the suspect told a hostage negotiator that he was upset about the recent police shootings of two black men and that he wanted to kill white people, especially police officers, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said at a news conference this morning.

One day after the shooting, however (the day before the ABC News story, above), The Blaze — one of America’s most widely-read conservative websites — reported the fact that Farrakhan’s incitement video was posted only hours before Johnson, an admirer of his, went on this racist murder spree:

Hours Before Officers Were Gunned Down in Dallas, Louis Farrakhan Posted This Shocking Message of Racism and ViolenceThe Blaze, July 8, 2016. Excerpt:

Hours before [Micah Xavier Johnson] opened fire on police officers in downtown Dallas, killing five cops and injuring seven others, Louis Farrakhan posted a message of hatred and violence against white people on social media. […]

“When you are willing and not afraid anymore to pay the price for freedom — don’t let this white man tell you that violence is wrong. Every damn thing that he got, he got it by being violent — killing people, raping and robbing and murdering. He’s doing it as we speak, and then he has the nerve to come and tell us that violence and hatred won’t get it. Don’t buy that!!!”

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) also reported on Johnson’s background, motivations, and admiration for Farrakhan:

Johnson liked on Facebook the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the Nation of Islam [Farrakhan’s organization] and the Black Riders Liberation Party, all listed by the SPLC as hate groups.

The story was also covered The Daily Beast, and The Times of Israel:

Dallas shooter was affiliated with anti-Semitic group; Micah Xavier Johnson was also loosely connected with Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, The Times of Israel, July 12, 2016.

Investigators may never know with certainty what combination of factors led Micah Xavier Johnson to methodically fire upon police officers in Dallas. Five white officers were killed in the attack, which came during a peaceful rally protesting the shooting deaths of young black men by law enforcement in other cities. […]

The Daily Beast also reported that Johnson was “loosely affiliated” with several other groups, including South Dallas’ Muhammad Mosque No. 48, which is run by members of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam — which both the Southern Poverty Law Center and ADL labeled an anti-Semitic hate group. He had also liked Facebook pages related to Elijah Muhammad, an early Nation of Islam leader.

Incredibly, as of April 19, 2022nearly six years later — Twitter’s previous management still allowed Farrakhan’s incitement video to remain published, at which point it had been viewed 393,600 times:


Imagine how the families of Dallas Police Officers Patrick Zamarripa, Senior Corporal Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Sergeant Michael Smith and Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police Officer Brent Thompson, would react to these facts about what Twitter’s previous management did — and what the ADL refused to do.

Gavin Eugene Long

Gavin Eugene Long

Ten days after Johnson’s racist rampage, on July 17, 2016, Gavin Eugene Long, a black Muslim, allegedly ambushed and shot six white police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, three of whom died.

Baton Rouge Shooter Gavin Eugene Long Was Nation Of Islam Member, Railed Against ‘Crackers’ On YouTube Channel [VIDEO], Chuck Ross, Daily Caller, July 17, 2016. Highlights:

A Youtube account operated by Gavin Eugene Long and discovered by The Daily Caller reveals key insight into what might have motivated the 29-year-old black man who killed three Baton Rouge police officers Sunday morning.

Videos on Long’s account show that he was a former Nation of Islam member. He also ranted against “crackers” and made references to Alton Sterling, the black man killed by police in Baton Rouge on July 5. […]

In one video posted in recent weeks, Long left a cryptic message that may have foretold Sunday’s attack. And though he said he was once a member of the Nation of Islam, the radical sect led by Louis Farrakhan, Long also said that he had no affiliations with outside groups. […]

“Yeah, I also was a Nation of Islam member.”

Two weeks after Long’s racist murder rampage, a local newspaper published the contents of his suicide note. Note the similarity in Long’s words to the words Farrakhan used in his videos:

Read the suicide note left by Baton Rouge police shooter Gavin LongThe Times-Picayune (LA), June 30, 2017:

“I must bring the same destruction that bad cops continue to inflict upon my people, upon bad cops as well as good cops.”

Read much more detail about Long’s Twitter posts (still active as of April 19, 2022), and the content of his YouTube videos (now removed), at:

Police shooter once Nation of Islam, committed to ‘religion of justice’Christian Examiner, July 18, 2016. Excerpt:

The gunman who opened fire on Louisiana police officers Sunday, killing three and wounding three others, admitted in a video that he was once a member of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and associated with other black power groups, but he said he should not be identified with anything except what he called “the religion of justice.”

He [Long] was also active on Twitter. On July 10, Long wrote, “You can’t talk (or protest) the devil into changing his ways, this has never been done and never will # 1.Exact Justice (Blood) or 2.Revenue.”

Imagine how the families of Baton Rouge PD Officers Matthew Gerald and Montrell Jackson, and East Baton Rouge Deputy Sheriff Brad Garafola, would react to these facts about what Twitter’s previous management did — and what the ADL refused to do.

Kori Ali Muhammad

Kori Ali Muhammad

Nine months later, on April 18, 2017, Kori Ali Muhammad went on murder spree against white people in Fresno, CA. According to numerous local and national news organizations, after murdering a white man the day before, Muhammad yelled “Allahu Akbar!!!”:

(a) As he slaughtered three more white people

(b) As police officers were arresting him

Muhammad described his hatred of white people in verbiage that, according to one expert on extremism, came straight from Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam:

Suspect in Fresno shooting rampage spoke about racial conflict and black nationalismLos Angeles Times, Apr 18, 2017:

Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, has been arrested in the shootings, which killed three people. Police have not provided a motive in the attack. As he was taken into custody, he yelled out “Allahu Akbar,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said. But officials emphasized that they were not sure whether this was an act of terrorism. […]

Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino, says many of Muhammad’s social media postings reference terms used by the Nation of Islam, which has been labeled a racist hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Pointing to Muhammad’s repeated references to “white devils” and “Yakub,” the villainous figure responsible for creating white people, according to Nation of Islam lore, Levin says it is likely Muhammad thought he was taking part in a race war.

Three years later, during his trial, Muhammad admitted his motive was to murder white people:

‘I wanted to kill them, yes’: Kori Muhammad takes the stand in murder trial – YourCentralValley (Fresno, CA), March 17, 2020:

Muhammad is accused of killing Motel 6 security guard Carl Williams on April 13, 2017.

Then five days later gunning down, Zackary Randalls, Mark Gassett, and David Jackson, during a shooting spree in downtown Fresno because they were white.

“When you took aim at these individuals, you intended to kill all three of them didn’t you?” Smith asked.

“Yep,” Muhammad said.

Muhammad recognized throughout his testimony he intended to kill.

“I kill them. yes, he’s dead, so it happen,” Muhammad said.

Smith questioning Muhammad on every murder, “Mr. Muhammad I’m asking you, the second you saw the PG&E truck you were going to find out if there was a white person in it, if there was, you were going to shoot him dead, isn’t that right?”

Muhammad replied, “yes.”

Imagine how the families of Zackary Randalls, Mark Gassett, David Martin Jackson and Carl Williams would react to these facts about what Twitter’s previous management did — and what the ADL refused to do.

(3)(4) 2018: Twitter’s previous management publicly declared its commitment to continue enabling Farrakhan

Despite knowing exactly who and what Louis Farrakhan is, and does, in the summer and fall of 2018, Twitter’s previous managemnt continued allowing him to post Tweets containing his hatred of Jews, and other forms of hate.

This Tweet (archive) is from June 6, 2018:

And in this Tweet (archive) is from October 16, 2018:


Despite these Tweets, and all the above evidence, Twitter’s previous management openly declared its intent to continue enabling him

(3)(5) 2020: The ADL declared Farrakhan is “America’s Most Popular Anti-Semite” — yet it never posted a Tweet containing this designation

On July 15, 2020, the ADL published a report on its website (ADL.org) that declared Louis Farrakhan “The Most Popular Anti-Semite In America”:

Curiously, the ADL never promoted its report on Twitter

A September 20, 2023 search at Twitter using the string, “from:@ADL Farrakhan Remains Most Popular Antisemite In America,” produced zero returns:


(3)(6) Despite all this, the ADL never posted a single Tweet, or item on its website, denouncing Twitter’s previous management for choosing to enable Farrakhan, or calling for advertisers to boycott the site — for more than eleven years

Here is the proof:

(1) The ADL has never posted a single item on Twitter calling out its management in relation to its enabling of Farrakhan

Here is a search on September 16, 2023 at Twitter using the string “from:@ADL Farrakhan Twitter” (the standard method for determining what a particular user has said about specific words).  It returned zero results:


(2) The ADL has never posted a single item on its website calling out Twitter for enabling Farrakhan

This fact is proven by a September 11, 2023 search at ADL.org (archive here) using the string “Farrakhan Twitter.”

The results show that the ADL has posted not a single article about Twitter enabling Farrakhan.  The only items that are returned relate to Farrakhan and Twitter independent of one another, deep within the body of content of reports and items with titles such as (complete listing; see PDF below):

(3)(7) Nor did the ADL say a word about Twitter’s previous management allowing Farrakhan to upload an explicit racist-violence incitement video, on July 7, 2016 — or the three racist murder sprees that his reported followers embarked on, the first of which occurred less than five hours later

Here’s the proof.

Recall that as documented Section 3.3, the first of these racist murder sprees was perpetrated by Farrakhan follower Micah Xavier Johnson less than five hours after Twitter allowed Farrakhan to upload his violence-incing video, at 4:10pm on July 7, 2016.

  • Here is a search at ADL.org of the string “Louis Farrakhan Micah Xavier Johnson.” No results.
  • Here is an archive of this search, from September 15, 2023. No results.

But what about on Twitter?

  • Here is a search at Twitter using the string: “from:@ADL Louis Farrakhan Micah Xavier Johnson.”  No results.
  • Here is a screencap of that search, captured on September 15, 2023. No results.


The ADL was also silent regarding the relationship between the two additional Farrakhan followers who, in the months after Twitter allowed him to upload his violence-incitement video, also went on on racist murder sprees

Here’s the proof:

Search (archive) at ADL.org, September 17, 2023: “Farrakhan Gavin Eugene Long”

The only returns were two documents that the ADL submitted to Congress, in 2017, that mentioned Farrakhan and Long — but in separate contexts, without drawing any connection between them, or the timing of the incitement video that Twitter allowed Farrakhan to upload, soon before Long went on his racist murder spree.

Search at Twitter/X, September 17, 2023: “from:@ADL Farrakhan Gavin Eugene Long”

Zero results.

Search (archive) at ADL.org, September 17, 2023: “Farrakhan Kori Ali Muhammad”

Zero results.

Search at Twitter/X, September 17, 2023: “from:@ADL Farrakhan Kori Ali Muhammad”

Zero results.


Yet this is the same ADL that, on November 4, 2022, accused Musk of “gutting” the “staff that supported combating antisemitism” on Twitter — even though it knew that for more than ten years, that same “staff” had been perpetrating the above outrages.

As part of its November 4, 2022 Tweet-fest against Musk, the ADL complained that Twitter did not remove a vile item posted by an obscure anti-Semitic podcaster with less than 1/10th the follower count of Farrakhan:

Then, on November 29, 2022, the ADL once again said we and our leaders must call out anti-Semitism, no matter its political DNA — a worthy principle that, as proven on this page, the ADL itself all but refuses to practice:


(4) Ten months later, Musk declared that the ADL’s defamation campaign against Twitter caused it to suffer a catastrophic loss of advertising revenue, and indicated that he was going to sue the group to recover billions of dollars in damages

Coming.

(6) Contrast the ADL’s silence regarding Twitter enabling Farrakhan, to the wars it instigates against others, over issues that are totally unrelated to fighting anti-Semitism

For example, contrast the ADL’s silence on Twitter’s previous management’s choice to enable Farrakhan, to the five-alarm campaign it instigated against orthodox Jewish blogger Chaya Raichik (aka LibsOfTikTok) for daring to share videos uploaded by radical leftists, many of them teachers, in which they explain how and why they are indoctrinating our children, or advocating for gender change treatments starting before puberty.

The ADL’s war against Raichik started here (archive):

And continued for the next month… (archive):

The “report” to which the above Tweet leads (archive) shows Raichik is the ADL’s #1 target, at the top of the page:

Conservative Jews voiced their repulsion at the ADL’s relentless, hyper-politicized, defamation-based attacks on Raichik several months later, at the CPAC convention:

Jewish CPAC Guests Slam ADL Attack on Libs of TikTok Chaya Raichik – Daily Signal, March 9, 2023.


Rather than being an isolated diversion of ADL resources away from defending Jews, the self-proclaimed global leader in combating antisemitism began a full-scale campaign on behalf of leftist gender ideology and politics:

(7) Conclusion: Placing the above into a theoretical historical context, to further indicate the monstrous deception and betrayal that the ADL perpetrated on the public, advertisers and Jews

Imagine if Twitter existed in the 1930s.

The NAACP was fervently fighting for the civil rights of former slaves, and their descendants. It did this on Twitter — the world’s most influential global communications platform — as well as on its website, and all other major communications mediums.

Now, imagine what would have happened if the NAACP’s leadership decided:

  • To refuse — as a matter of policy — to condemn Twitter’s management for choosing to enable the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, the indisputably most influential inciter of hatred and violence against black people, and to profit from this decision
  • To instead use its Twitter platform and website to advocate for the belief that race is a myth, and pre-pubescent children can wake up one day and decide they are of another race, or no race, and that everyone around them must begin addressing them in different terms

Similarly, imagine what would happen if the ADL decided:

  • To refuse — as a matter of policy — to condemn Twitter’s management for choosing (a) To enable Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s most influential inciter of hatred and violence against Jews, and (b) To profit from this decision

  • To use its Twitter platform and website to avoid virtually any mention of German anti-Semitism and white supremacism — and instead, falsely claim that the #1 threat Jews faced was from obscure, small groups and lone individuals who hate, and occasionally perpetrate violence against them
  • To engage in a veritable jihad to destroy an orthodox Jewish blogger, who shared items posted by people and organizations that indoctrinate children in left-wing gender and political ideology, advocate for gender-transition surgery and medical treatments for them, and cheer men who dress as women, and dance provocatively for elementary school-age children
  • To do all these things while more and more Hollywood celebrities and influencers were being drawn into Goebbels’ world, and even publicly defend his incitement against Jews

Goebbels speaks at a rally in favor of the boycott of Jewish-owned shops. Berlin, Germany, April 1, 1933.

Imagine what would happen to the NAACP’s and the ADL’s credibility, and their fundraising ability.

Yet this is precisely what the ADL has been perpetrating on Twitter since its previous management chose to allow Louis Farrakhan — whom it has known for decades is America’s most influential inciter of anti-Semitic, racist and anti-LGBT hatred and violence — to establish an account.

What changed on November 4, 2022, however, was that after eleven years of steadfastly saying nothing on Twitter or on its website about Farrakhan’s consistent use of the site to spread mass hatred against Jews, the ADL chose to misdirect the world into believing that Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, unleashed unprecedented anti-Semitism on the site — eight days after he took control of it.  Further, the ADL openly declared its intent to help bankrupt the site, by compelling advertisers to boycott it, based on this demonstrably, monstrously false claim.

The facts and evidence contained on this page prove this assertion beyond any reasonable doubt.

The only question now is:

What will those who are now aware of this situation do with these facts and evidence, to hold the ADL to account for this fraud, and betrayal?


(8) Topics to be covered in future reports

Rather than being an isolated act of treachery, the ADL’s phony war against Musk/Twitter is part of a  broader pattern of behavior to betray Jews, and mislead the general public, advertisers and its donors
