Can’t Make This Up=> ADL CEO: “150K transgender Americans have bravely served USA.” … Since Last Year

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the beleaguered “anti-‘hate'” organization ADL, responded unhingedly earlier to President Trump’s annoucement that he plans to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals from serving in any capacity in the U.S. armed forces.

Late this morning, Greenblatt tweeted about the subject … and included an eye-opening number: “150K transgender Americans have bravely served USA. @POTUS’ military ban is shameful & discriminatory. We stand w/trans & LGBT community.”

** There are currently 1.28 million men and women serving in the US military on active duty.
** Transgender troops were only allowed last year during the Obama regime.
** That means, according to Greenblatt, about one in eight are transgender.
Seriously?

According to Julia Jacobo of ABC News:

The 2016 Rand study, titled “Assessing the Implications of Allowing Transgender Personnel to Serve Openly,” estimates that between 1,320 and 6,630 of 1.3 million active duty service members may be transgender.

A mid-range estimate states that 2,450 active duty service members and 1,510 members in the U.S. reserves may be transgender, according to the study.

Some outraged by POTUS’s announcement cited, not necessarily providing an actual source, figures higher than the 2016 Rand study. For example, noted thespian Mark Hamill (in foreground of picture above) this afternoon tweeted: “A salute to the 15,000+ transgender patriots now currently serving in the United States Military. #ThankYouLGBT #TransRightsAreHumanRights”

The “15,000+” number Hamill mentioned is approximately 2.5 to 11 times higher than the number cited by the 2016 Rand study. Nevertheless, it is approximately 1/10 of the number mentioned by the ADL’s Greenblatt.

It would be an understatement to describe many of the reactions to Greenblatt’s tweets as “skeptical.”

Adam‏ @AmericanSniperG tweeted: “150k within a year? Sureeeee”

(((Lidia Monroe)))‏ @LidiaMonroe said: “And when did that happen? trans were only allowed in last year. Get your facts straight, dear liberal.”

Brian Glenn‏ @brianglenntv tweeted: “In what movie are you getting these numbers?”

MorningInAmerica‏ @oldhickory49 replied by saying: “It’s 0.03{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}. Liar.”

When queried by Jordan Belfort‏ @Jonesin4Jordan, who tweeted: “Not disagreeing or agreeing with what you are saying but where did this number come from….,” Greenblatt actually provided a link to a study from the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law.

What is very clear from even a cursory view of the Twitter pages of Greenblatt and the ADL is that there is much more passion on their end related to President Trump’s announcement today than there was about the jihad slaughter of members an Israeli Jewish family during their sabbath dinner this past Friday.

For example, the following image is now pinned to the top of the ADL’s Twitter page and has been retweeted by Greenblatt:

Neither Greenblatt nor the ADL’s national office felt the need to go to any trouble to do any pinning or to create petitions in the aftermath of the aforementioned jihad slaughter of members of an Israeli Jewish family during their sabbath dinner this past Friday.

Last week, the supposedly-anti-“hate” ADL ambushed The Gateway Pundit, among other President Trump-supporting individuals and organizations, by including the name of Lucien Wintrich, The Gateway Pundit’s White House correspondent, on its donations-from-leftist-bigots-driven fundraising effort to put targets on the backs of prominent Trump supporters. The ADL has as of yet not so much as retracted, much less apologized for and begun the process of settling damages related to, its despicable, dangerously-targeting-given-the-aftermath-of-James Hodgkinson’s-rampage “report.”

As reported here Tuesday:

One of the more powerful liberal propaganda houses, known as the “Anti-Defamation League”, published a murder hit list Tuesday on reported “Alt-Right” and “Alt-Lite” “extremists” in America.
Apparently the only qualifiers for “extremism” are patriotism, the belief in small government, and support for the current president (according to the left).
Make no mistake about it, the ADL posted this disgusting report as a hit on ALL Donald Trump supporters.
The report put a target on ALL Trump supporters — most notably the conservatives and some they brand as “Alt Right” and “Alt Light” activists mentioned in their report.

… Mike Cernovich led the Trump movement in the run-up to the 2016 election and broke numerous anti-Hillary stories.

Gavin McInnes leads the Proud Boys (a patriotic American fraternity) movement and is an extremely popular radio host at both Rebel Media and Compound Media.

Popular New Right reporter Jack Posobiec also made the list. He actually held a rally AGAINST political violence.

Lucian Wintrich is The Gateway Pundit’s White House Correspondent and made the list because of his skyrocketing popularity and charisma. Lucian is a popular campus speaker and media magnate, having been profiled in dozens of publications from The New Yorker and Hollywood Reporter to several papers internationally.

Lucian Wintrich is also an open gay conservative and the grandson of a Nazi occupation survivor. Lucian’s grandfather, a Jew, fled the Nazis in Poland and came to America penniless. Again – Lucian is the grandson of a Nazi occupation survivor – and yet the ADL is claiming that he is racist, anti-Semite and right-wing extremist.

The ADL, once known as the Anti-Defamation League, tends to present itself as the foremost arbiter of “hate,” with a current mission much more general (and, presumably, more financially lucrative, in part due to ongoing “No Place for Hate”®-Initiative presentations at public schools) than its original one.

According to Wikipedia, the organization formerly known as “the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith” was founded in October 1913 [in the aftermath of the Leo Frank Affair] by the Independent Order of B’nai B’rith, a Jewish service organization in the United States, its original mission statement was “to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people.”

In keeping with the now-apparently-universalist goals of the ADL, its Twitter page’s current cover photo features six people, which include a female in a hijab, three people of African descent and no one identifiably — or even who looks minimally stereotypically — Jewish.
