The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has been awarded a $500,000 grant to expand its research work on anti-immigrant groups, and to continue support for Making Diversity Count®, the League’s award-winning online anti-bias training program for educators.

“We are gratified the Ford Foundation has reaffirmed the importance of our efforts to monitor and expose anti-immigrant groups, an area of our work that has become increasingly important as we continue to partner with prominent Latino civil rights organizations on this issue,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.  ”We are so very proud to count the Ford Foundation among our closest partners in our vital work to seek justice and fair treatment for all and to further democratic values.”

Through the same grant the Foundation also renewed its funding support of ADL’s Making Diversity Count® (MDC).  MDC is an online anti-bias professional development program designed to give educators the tools they need to effectively promote diversity and respect for all students as well as to combat and confront bullying.

  • “Ford” donates to ADL.

    From a historical perspective, this is so very ironic.

  • Seems like a waste of $500,000.  The ADL knows exactly why White America despises immigration/occupation of OUR shores.

      ADL PREPARES FOR INTERNET TAKEOVER
      15 May 12

      The Anti-Defamation League has long coveted the role of providing to the government and its internet spies the pivotal definitions which determine which ideas are a “national security threat.” Should CISPA pass, ADL wants to be in firm agreement with the government and internet industry on exactly who will be reported as an internet hater, anti-Semite, security threat or possible domestic terrorist.

  • Do NOT buy Fords.

    From personal experience, Ford will DO ANYTHING to hire a minority and let them get away with sleeping all day.

    But, they HYPOCRITICALLY hire only Indians and Asians for Engineering jobs.  And, admittedly, WASPs for upper management.

      The Ford Motor Company has nothing to do with the Ford Foundation. The problem is that the rich widows of the pioneers of industry got conned into backing socialist groups dedicated to the destruction of White civilization. Henry Ford’s widow was one of them.

      • Fine then, go buy a goddamned Ford.
        Plump up them Widder Wimmins stock portfolio.

          Nit wit: the Ford Family has no control over the Ford Foundation.  In fact, during the 1970s, upset by the direction the Ford Foundation was headed, Henry Ford II sued to get his family name removed from the foundation.  The courts ruled that the Ford Family could not prevent the foundation from using the Ford name.  Mind you, HFII didn’t ask for his money back, just his name.  The commie courts said NO.

    ADL national director Abe Foxman: “We are gratified the Ford Foundation has reaffirmed the importance of our efforts to monitor and expose anti-immigrant groups…”

    No doubt the ADL will shortly address the growing anti-immigrant sentiments not just of impotent private groups in America but of the head of state of the nation of Israel: 

    Israel PM: illegal African immigrants threaten identity of Jewish
    state

    THE GUARDIAN

    May 20, 2012

    The Israeli prime minister has stoked a volatile debate about refugees and
    migrant workers from Africa, warning that “illegal infiltrators flooding the
    country” were threatening the security and identity of the Jewish state.

    “If we don’t stop their entry, the problem that currently stands at
    60,000 could grow to 600,000, and that threatens our existence as a Jewish and
    democratic state,” Binyamin Netanyahu said at Sunday’s cabinet meeting. “This
    phenomenon is very grave and threatens the social fabric of society, our
    national security and our national identity.” Israel’s population is 7.8
    million.

      Holyflower, to further your comment:

      From Breitbart:

      Israeli planning authorities approved construction of a detention centre for illegal immigrants, at a projected cost of 250 million shekels ($67 million), the Defence Ministry said. The formal authorization follows a November 2010 cabinet decision to build a facility for mostly African migrants smuggled across Israel’s borders, but who for legal reasons cannot immediately be deported to their countries.

      Israel is erecting a giant security barrier along its 240-kilometre (150 miles) border with Egypt’s Sinai peninsula and plans to put up a similar structure along its 238 kilometer (148 miles) frontier with Jordan.Work on the Egypt barrier began a year ago, in a project initially aimed at stemming a growing tide of African migrants, as well as clamping down on cross-border trafficking in drugs and women. According to Israeli government data a total of 16,816 Africans entered Israel illegally from Egypt in 2011. The government fears that once the Egyptian border fence is complete migrants will attempt to sneak in from Jordan until that frontier is also sealed.

    It seem the “International Person” has taken hold of its once staunch opponent….

      And yet they don’t like their country being over run:

        This is the most incredible article I have ever read.
        We must organize and march just like the Israelis.

        “Residents of the south Tel Aviv neighborhoods Shapira and Kiryat Shalom held another rally on Chahmei Yisrael Street. They waved signs reading, “Our streets are no longer safe for our children,” “The craziness of our life: Neglect, crime, rape and violence,” “Yesterday it was my daughter, tomorrow it will be your daughter,” and “Yishai was right.”

    •  I don’t lionize Henry Ford.  These things are never monocausal, but he might be close to singularly responsible for Detroit being a black and Arab city today.

    • blight14

       Mr Ford was 100% correct…….

  • Henery Ford is turning in his grave.

    • IstvanIN

      Both, actually. The Ford Family has no control over the Ford Foundation. In fact, during the 1970s, upset by the direction the Ford Foundation was headed, Henry Ford II sued to get his family name removed from the foundation. The courts ruled that the Ford Family could not prevent the foundation from using the Ford name. Mind you, HFII didn’t ask for his money back, just his name. The commie courts said NO.

  • blight14

     We should have listened to the supremely wise Henry Ford……

  • MartelC

    this is kind of funny in light of the fact the ADL is very pro israel and likkud , – where there’s a mass effort to expel african immigrants, curiously the ADL doesn’t seem interested. Can’t figure that one out. 

  • jack ryan

    Could some of Amren’s very solid Jewish supporters please get in the face of the ADL, Abe Foxman?

    Jews in Isreal are now working very, very hard against 3rd world immigration, Black  African asylum seekers in Israel. It’s about time some Jewish Americans came over to our side here in the USA.

  • ageofknowledge

    I can save them a lot of time and money. The anti-immigrant anti-bias movement is 99.99% composed of patriotic hard working family oriented Americans… the very ones that built this country into the greatest country in the world.

    The money would best be spent studying how the immigrants and biased modern liberals and neo-conservatives are destroying it.
