The Anti-Defamation League is under scrutiny after publishing a “target list” of people they deem to be “alt-right” or “alt-light,” and now one of those named on the list is demanding answers about the organization’s funding.
The organization reports that they take in approximately $52 million in funding annually — while paying out over $32 million to their employees, which is over 60%.
According to the ADL’s page on the Charity Navigator, they claim to spend on 12.0% on administrative assets, 15.9% on fundraising expenses, and 71.9% on program expenses. The website gave the organization one star out of four on their financial spending.
Jonathan Greenblatt reported $168,665 “compensation from affiliates” as the Chief Executive Officer in 2015, while the former National Director Abraham H. Foxman received $446,748.
Greenblatt served as the Special Assistant to President Barack Obama as well as his Director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation in the United States Domestic Policy Council. He is now the National Director and CEO of the ADL.
In December, the New York Post reported that “Jonathan Greenblatt is Destroying the ANTI-Defamation League.” Their reason for this was that he had visited Israel and told leaders that anti-Semitism in the US is now comparable to that in Germany during the Holocaust, and blamed President Donald Trump and his supporters for the rise he claimed existed.
“Anti-Semitism has wound its way into mainstream conversations in a manner that many Jews who lived through Nazi Germany find terrifying,” Greenblatt had stated.
Prior to Greenblatt taking over, the organization held a firm non-partisan stance, as their mission statement to “fight anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry” finds support from both parties.
“Greenblatt came to the job directly from serving as a special assistant to President Obama. Before that, he directed an initiative at the Aspen Institute, a George Soros-financed, left-leaning nonprofit. And his bias is showing now in his opposition to anything associated with right-wing politics and in the ADL’s championing of leftist positions, even when they run against the interests of the Jewish community,” the Post reported.
Under his leadership, the organization has become arguably obsessed with internet trolls and the “alt-right” while largely ignoring anti-Semitism from the left — such as the incident where a Jewish flag was banned from a Chicago Pride march. They also openly support Black Lives Matter, despite the group’s open disdain for Israel and support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
As we previously reported, last week the ADL ironically published a list defaming and lumping together 36 people, all with unique views and opinions, as being “alt-right” or “alt-light” in an attempt to squash right-wing voices.
The report, titled “From Alt Right to Alt Lite: Naming the Hate,” is listed under the organization’s tab for “Anti-Semitism in the US,” but includes several people who are themselves Jewish — including Gateway Pundit’s White House Correspondent Lucian Wintrich.
“The ADL, led by a childish Barack Obama staffer, is acting like a group that makes lists of undesirables and targets them for hate. Their lies and smear about me, and their threats against my family will not make us stop exposing the evils of the Left and fighting to take back our country,” author Jack Posobiec, who is named on the alt-lite list, told Big League Politics.
Big League Politics has reached out to ADL for comment for this report and will update upon receiving a reply.

Father Handcuffed, Arrested for Playing Tee Ball with Wife and Daughter in Public Park
So much for the land of the free.
Matt Mooney, a 33-year-old father and resident of Brighton, Colo., was accosted by police in a public park and restrained with handcuffs for playing tee ball with his wife and 6-year-old daughter on Sunday afternoon.
Mooney told his story to the FOX31 Problem Solvers and believes he is entitled to an apology because of the cruel mistreatment he received from these uniformed thugs on a coronavirus-enabled power trip.
He described the shocking and traumatizing ordeal that his young daughter was forced to go through because of the government overreach.
“She’s like, ‘Daddy, I don’t want you to get arrested.’ At this point I’m thinking, ‘There’s no way they’re going to arrest me, this is insane.’ I’m telling her, ‘Don’t worry, Daddy’s not going to get arrested. I’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t worry about it,’ and then they arrest me,” Mooney told FOX31.
Mooney refused to provide identification to law enforcement because he believed he was in compliance with the law. Former Brighton City Councilman Kirby Wallin recorded much of the incident on his cell phone camera.
“He’s being taken by the Brighton police for playing softball with his daughter in an empty park,” Wallin said.
Wallin does not believe that what law enforcement did to Mooney in front of his family was appropriate.
“I find it hard to believe with all the things going on in our communities, the only way to resolve a situation like this was to handcuff a father in front of his daughter,” he told FOX31.
Mooney noted that he and his family were in full compliance with the sign that was posted at Donelson Park, which said “Closed” but specified in small print that “in groups of no more than 4 persons, parks remain open for walking, hiking, biking, running and similar activities.” He is accusing the cops of violating the social distance orders by hassling him and humiliating him in front of his daughter.
“During the contact, none of the officers had masks on, none of them had gloves on, and they’re in my face handcuffing me, they’re touching me,” he said.
“If we’re going to go ahead and start arresting people for no reason in front of their 6-year-old daughter, you’re just going to cause more problems later on,” Mooney added.
The Brighton police have not taken responsibility for their heinous actions at the present time. They did release a vague statement on their Facebook page Sunday night though, which may or may not be referencing the incident.
“The Brighton Police Department is conducting an investigation into a situation that occurred late this afternoon at Donelson Park. This is an active investigation and so we are unable to provide additional information until the investigation is complete,” they wrote.
The Brighton police thus far have not returned media requests for comment. This is just the latest in a countless number of infringements with coronavirus hysteria used as the catalyst to sever core freedoms.
