In 1947, the United Nations’ Genocide Treaty defined genocide as inflicting “mental harm” upon people, possibly through criticism of them. Such was, perhaps, the earliest example of “thought crime” legislation. Since then, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B‘rith has played the predominant role in promoting not only the Genocide Treaty, but “thought crime,” i.e. “anti-hate” laws, worldwide. These laws, if enacted by the United States, mean the end of free speech talk radio. This has happened in Canada and other nations which have adopted ADL hate laws.
Yet many Christian/conservative organizations and broadcasters are reluctant to criticize hate laws. They are fearful that ADL will consider such criticism as attack on the legislative agenda of a worldwide Jewish religious and cultural organization, B’nai B’rith. As a result, such broadcasters, fearing an ADL smear against them as being “anti-semitic,” remain silent.
However, it is now ADL and B’nai B’rith, not those who tell the truth, who are most vulnerable to ruin of reputation. This is talk radio’s golden opportunity to speak out and insure the preservation of its unique voice in a confused world.


Reason #1:
ADL/B’nai B’rith Has Massively Offended Many Christians

For the past century, Christian evangelicals have regarded the Jews and their leaders as friends, co-inheritors of a “Judaeo-Christian” religious heritage. Yet, ADL’s savage attack on eleven Christians in Philadelphia on Oct. 10th, arresting them as “hate criminals” with penalties up to 47 years in prison, has created shock waves of suspicion and alienation against Jews and their leaders. The “love affair” of evangelicals toward Jews is threatened, with many evangelicals feeling not just jilted, but savagely raped. The ADL, having arrested the “Philly eleven” Christians through the authority of their national executive board member, Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham, is now under public suspicion as never before in its 92-year history.
Question: Is ADL now likely to lash out against another Christian broadcaster or organization that criticizes its hate laws? Forget it.
At present, ADL wants to stay as far away from public “Christian bashing” as it can – that is, until Christians’ wounds heal. This is the perfect time, then, for broadcasters to begin an educational program against hate laws.

Congress Received Much Criticism of ADL Hate Laws

The ADL was deeply shaken, even disoriented, by massive public disgust at their attempt to jump-start persecution of Christians in Philadelphia on Oct. 10th. How do we know this?
After defeat of their federal hate bill, “The Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act of 2004,” (Amdt. 3183) in Congress on Oct. 8th, 2004, ADL introduced another version of it, HR 259, on Jan. 6th, 2005. This coincided with the reconvening of Congress, about 3 months earlier than their usual schedule for re-submission. Such abruptness was bravado, dramatizing to Congress that, though thrice defeated and under withering criticism, they were eager to re-submit their hate bill. They would fulfill their promise to never give up until hate laws became the law of the land.
.In reality, ADL was in disarray. They were unnerved by how much feedback Congress was receiving against “anti-hate” legislation. As a result, lest members of Congress actually read their bill, a jittery ADL gutted HR 259 of much of its most important, yet potentially very alarming provisions. Such were vital ADL legislation necessary to break down states’ rights in law enforcement and establish a virtual police state – an anti-hate federal bureaucracy identical to Canada’s of which ADL would be in control. (Compare HR 259 and HR 2662 at
The removed provisions empower the federal government to take over local law enforcement if:

* States do not have hate laws;

States are not enforcing state and federal hate laws as zealously as the federal government wishes;

States do not produce the kind of verdicts in hate crimes trials that the federal government wants. (Sec. 7, A-D)

Also highly significant is the fact that, last winter, ADL introduced HR 259 into the House Judiciary in virtual secrecy. Omitted was the usual press hooplah. There was none of the customary public posturing by such ADL lackeys as Sen. Edward Kennedy and Sen. Gordon Smith, beating their breasts in pity for Matt Shepard – “sending a message that hate crimes will no longer be tolerated in America” – as if hate crimes were being tolerated.
Yes, on May 26th, confident that the church and nation would soon forget the threat of hate laws, ADL leaders did regain their composure. In fact, they introduced a new hate bill, re-inserting the deleted provisions, stiffer than any before it, “The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005,” HR 2662, S 1145. This new hate bill, while not giving special federal protection to the unborn, grants such favoritism to men who dress up like women – transvestites!
In retrospect, ADL’s period of panic last winter proves how rattled they can become if their misdeeds are made the focus of critical media scrutiny. The American people, roused to anger and besieging Congress, is a force which Congress and ADL still fear.

ADL Is Less Likely to Smear Its Critics
After A Crushing Legal Defeat

Recently, ADL was slammed with a roughly 12.5 million dollar final judgment for labeling a movie executive and his wife “anti-semitic.” ADL’s libel against William Quigley had ruined his career in the Jewish film industry. The ADL, whose very name eschews defamation, has never been reluctant to defame as “anti-semitic” those who criticize matters Jewish. That time they went too far.
This massive judgment virtually ends any possibility that ADL will accuse Christian/conservative broadcasters of “anti-semitism” for merely criticizing ADL’s hate crime agenda. If they did, such broadcasters might also get rich at ADL’s expense!


Christian leaders, broadcasters, and talk show hosts, now is the moment to educate the public against hate laws and guarantee the future of free speech talk radio in America. Will you join the National Prayer Network and at least 35 radio and TV talk show hosts, including Alex Jones and Jeff Rense, as we help put an end to ADL’s corrupting influence on America?
Rabbi Daniel Lapin has labelled ADL leader Abe Foxman as the Jews’ “own worst enemy.” Stand with us as we protect the Jewish people from the worldwide anti-semitism that such evil Jewish leadership incites against the Jewish people through their anti-Christianity and subversion of freedom.
By doing so, you will help save free speech for generations to come.
However, the organization, livelihood, and talk show you save NOW will be your own.
