You’d think, that after 6 million Jews were exterminated by some
lunatic just 55 years ago, that they would be America’s staunchest gun
control opponents.

If I were Jewish and had managed, by God’s good graces, to survive
Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist Party Nazi regime that governed
Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, the very first thing I would
acquire at my earliest convenience would be a means to defend myself and
my surviving family in the future. In other words, a gun.

Pistol, rifle, shotgun — whatever. Something, so that in the
event another madman came along — with the full weight and force of
government behind him — to try to “exterminate” me once again, I’d be
ready. I may die anyway, but not before putting up a fight.

However, Jewish Americans, by and large, seem hell-bent on trusting
— once again — only government with guns. The

Anti-Defamation League
is no exception.

What is the purpose of the ADL? Why is it here? What is the group’s major function in our society? Why, to “fight against racism, bigotry, and anti-Semitism.”

Right. So what’s that got to do with guns?

Nothing. The ADL exists to fight racist laws, racist people, and bigots who seek to malign, marginalize or otherwise slander people of Jewish faith in the media, in public, and in the law.

At least, that used to be the ADL’s primary goal. But like so many other groups — the NAACP, the National Education Association, the American Trial Lawyers Association, to name a few — the ADL has become little more than a propaganda mouthpiece for liberal (meaning socialist) engineering of the American culture, government and society. Worse, they hypocritically base all of their socialist tendencies on the group’s original intent.

I’ll explain.

A good friend of mine — talk show veteran host and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) combat vet

Robby Noel
— alerted me to some recent ADL anti-gun hypocrisy, which I feel needed to be aired in a more public forum. After all, we have an election approaching, and all voters — Jews, Gentiles, atheists — need to know where some of these phony groups stand on their purely politically correct/motivated issues.

Rob helps promote a Colorado-based pro-Second Amendment group called

The Tyranny Response Team.
“Members” — really, there is no “paid membership” or real formal “membership” — fan out to different events and appearances by some government officials to voice support for freedom from dying unarmed at the hands of some well-armed criminal thug.

These people — family-oriented men, women, and children — have stopped complaining about the socialist push in the U.S. for more gun control and have started to do something about it. The TRT “members” show up at various events attended by government officials and public figures to confront them about their anti-Second Amendment sentiments. Sort of an “in your face” approach designed to thwart more illegal gun control.

The TRT recently had an encounter with the ADL. From the TRT’s web site:

    On June 21, 2000, the Colorado Chapter of the Tyranny Response Team had 150-200 people in attendance at the Boulder city council administrative hearing. This hearing was to gather public input regarding their (BCC) proposed gun ordinances with which TRT (and all thinking folk) disagreed. TRT used this picture in their demonstration to draw attention to the fatal results of gun control as it relates to the Holocaust. Some of the dedicated activists also wore the yellow Star of David with the words GUN OWNER emblazoned thereon — pinned to their chests. The move prompted a letter from a representative from the Anti Defamation League.

The action prompted a letter from ADL’s local affiliate chief, Bobbie Tobin, who wrote,

“We recognize that reasonable minds may differ over the best way to solve the growing problem of violence in the United States, and we respect the right of your organization to advocate its views. However, we are deeply disturbed by the Tyranny Response Team’s exploitation of the Holocaust to advance its position.

“Our office has received a number of complaints from people who were present at the Boulder City Hall hearing last Wednesday night.

“According to the complainants, the presence of many Tyranny Response Team members wearing black shirts with yellow, six pointed stars, was very distressing. The distribution of flyers containing photographs of Holocaust victims served to raise even more anguish among members of the Jewish community who were present — some of whom were Holocaust survivors.

“We ask — in memory of the six million Jews and millions of others — that you refrain from using the Nazi Genocide as a political tool again in the future.”

So, is the ADL really “upset” over TRT’s very appropriate use of the Holocaust to illustrate why unarmed civilians pose no danger to well-armed, thuggish and tyrannical leaders?

Or is something else at play here — like a socialist political agenda?

From a June 1999 ADL

press release:

“The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has reaffirmed support for gun control initiatives ‘designed to make it more difficult for extremists as well as children to acquire and use guns and other dangerous weapons in this country.’

“At a meeting last week of the National Executive Committee, ADL’s top policymaking body, in Philadelphia, members adopted a resolution in support of efforts to expand the regulation of firearms and other weapons.

“ADL’s support for gun control measures at the state and federal level goes back to 1967.”

And there you have it. ADL’s opposition to TRT’s use of the “Star of David” and the Holocaust is little more than a phony ruse to mask the group’s historic support of “gun control measures.” The TRT knows this.

Now, you do, too.

Next on the TRT’s protest list: the ADL offices at 1120 Lincoln Street in Denver at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening, Aug. 30, 2000.

“This will be a candle light vigil in memory to all of the victims of state sponsored genocide,” TRT said. “We want to show the correlation between victim disarmament and genocide.”
