ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt on Kanye "Ye" West's Cancelation: "If We Don't Get Him... The Myth Spreads"

ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt told The Breakfast Club in a stunning slip-up that he organized the cancelation of Kanye "Ye" West because "if we don't get him" then the "myth" of Jewish power will spread.

UPDATE: The audio got cut off for some odd reason... Here's a mirror:

"What do you say to people who say that, you know, y'all are proving somebody like Kanye right because Kanye says, 'Hey Jewish people have all the power' and then he loses everything?" Breakfast Club host Charlamagne asked Greenblatt in an interview released Wednesday.

"Well look, the insidious nature of anti-Semitism and these tropes about power is Kanye can say these things, 'Jews have all the power they're controlling everything' and if we don't get him--," Greenblatt responded before quickly correcting himself, "you know, if we don't deal with that--, the myth spreads and it takes root."

You can watch the full exchange below at the 46:00 mark.

The entire interview is worth the watch if you want to see a masterclass in gaslighting.

Greenblatt opened the interview by telling the story of how the ADL was formed in response to the lynching of Leo Frank but left out the part about how Frank raped and murdered a 13-year-old girl named Mary Phagan, whom he had working at his pencil factory as a child laborer, and then tried to frame a black guy for the crime.

Greenblatt claims it's a myth Jewish groups have power but then goes on to say how the ADL can phone up the FBI any time they like and the FBI calls them when incidents concerning Jews being the potential victims of crimes take place (the FBI won't respond to formal letters sent to them by GOP congressmen and senators but they have Greenblatt on speed dial).

Greenblatt said how the ADL was the driving force behind the civil rights movement and marched with Martin Luther King but left out how they spied on him.

He said that the ADL is "one of the largest providers in America of anti-bias, anti-hate content in schools" and reach "three and a half to four million kids in schools" every year but left out that they're teaching kids that only white people can be racist.

He claimed that "Jewish people are the most victimized religious minority in the country" because "60% of all the religious based hate crimes target Jews" but left out how the FBI doesn't care about anti-Christian hate crimes and often doesn't even bother to investigate them.

Asked where the "stereotype" that "Jewish people control the media" comes from, Greenblatt said it comes from "old tropes about Jews and power."

"Are there some Jewish media executives? Sure there are. Do Jews control the media? Not as far as I know," Greenblatt said.

If you're as powerless as you claim, Greenblatt, why did you write a letter in 2018 threatening the entire country of Iceland that if they dare to ban circumcision (male child genital mutilation) you'll use your power over the media to smear their island nation as being "associated with Nazism," "even if that association is not justified," and destroy their tourism industry?

You issued similar threats against Adidas last month in order to get them to end their relationship with Ye.

Despite Greenblatt's gaslighting, no one is buying his shtick.

The comments on The Breakfast Club's interview are a sight to behold.
