Even the Washington Post called out the left-wing ADL over its fraudulent claims that “right-wing extremist violence” is responsible for most killings
06/05/2022 // JD Heyes // Views

The Washington Post is a deep state regime propaganda rag but in order to maintain credibility, the paper has to resemble an unbiased 'non-partisan' outlet from time to time to keep up appearances.

And apparently, the Post picked massively false data put out by the Anti-Defamation League to seem legitimate this month.

The ADL claims that 'right-wing extremists' are responsible for most killings done on behalf of "extremism," but that claim is demonstrably false, and author Daniel Friedman was among those who called the organization out over the lie.

"These numbers are manipulable based on who you define as an extremist. ADL reaches these numbers by defining all homicides committed by members of white gangs (mostly prison gangs) as right-wing extremists, while not defining black or Latino gangs as politically motivated," Friedman posted in a tweet quoting Puck News correspondent Julia Ioffe, who tweeted an ADL graphic claiming that right-wing extremists were responsible for nearly 75 percent of extremist-related killings versus around 4 percent for left-wing extremists between 2012 and 2021.

"Here’s a list of offenses included in the data. Any homicide involving any member of a white prison gang, whether the homicide itself is politically motivated or not, is counted as a right-wing extremist homicide," Friedman continued.

"According to the DOJ’s National Gang Center, about 45% of gang members in the United States are Latino, 35% are black and 11% are white. Latino and black gangs commit a lot of homicide, but only the white gangs are considered 'extremist groups,'" he continued.

"If every criminal or prison gang that only admits black members was considered a left-wing 'black nationalist' extremist movement, and every homicide committed by gang members were counted as an extremist killing, then right-wing killings would be eclipsed by left-wing killings," he noted further.

Last week, the Washington Post came out and called out the ADL for its manipulated data in a piece headlined, "Beware the data on American right-wing violence."

The piece noted that the ADL's data was not only manipulated but cherry-picked as well, which makes sense because the ADL is a far-left organization whose primary objective is propagandizing and smearing conservatives:

After all those reports on the threat of right-wing violence, any new case with a tenuous link to the alt-right or the Aryan Brotherhood seems like part of a trend meriting wall-to-wall coverage. Meanwhile, a Black man driving into a parade after making anti-White remarks on Facebook is seen as a sick individual.

RealClearInvestigations also called out the ADL fakery.

"The FBI has not issued the official number of murders in the U.S. in 2021, but it is expected to exceed the number of murders in 2020: 21,570 -- of which, according to ADL, 23 were committed by extremists," Carl Moody, an economist at the College of William & Mary who studies crime, told the outlet.


"The data presented by the ADL could also be characterized as follows: the number of murders committed by extremists is very small, only 29 in 2021, of which less than half were committed by white supremacists," Moody said. "It is also 63% lower than the maximum number (78) in 2016, so extremism is down since 2016. In 2020, according to the CDC, 1080 people were killed falling out of bed. Therefore, you are 47 times more likely to be killed by a bed than by an extremist."

Meanwhile, as the far-left ADL pushes for 'domestic terrorism' legislation to crack down on alleged 'neo-Nazis' in America, the group is all about funding Ukraine, where real neo-Nazi military units such as the Azov Battalion are located.

These people are gaslighting liars, nothing more.
