Abe Foxman, Head of Anti-Defamation League, to Speak Twice in OC This Sunday
Few folks are more controversial on the Left that Abraham Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League. On one hand, his organization remains on the forefront of tracking white supremacists in the United States; on the other hand, their knee-jerk reaction to categorize nearly any criticism of Israel and its policies as anti-Semitic gets progressives all angry.
Foxman, to his credit and discredit, is a no-nonsense, bare-knuckles type of guy, and Orange County folks will have two chances to see the guy speak, both on the goyim's day of rest. In the morning, he'll be speaking at the Merage Jewish Community Center in Irvine about his new book, Jews and Money: The Story of a Stereotype. That one is $10 for admission. In the evening, though, should be the fun.
That's when he speaks to an open meeting of the Orange County/Long Beach board of the regional chapter of the Anti-Defamation League at Big Canyon Country Club on "The American Jewish Community: Threats and Successes." Event is free and open to the public, but you'll have to reserve with regional head Kevin O'Grady at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know how it goes!
