The Town of Watertown is the first community in the nation to officially sever ties with the Anti-Defamation League and the No Place For Hate program. Watertown rescinded the certification of No Place For Hate tonight with a vote of 8-0.
Here are some jewcy details:
Andrew Tarsy, New England Director and Minister of Disinformation for the Anti-Defamation League, got up and repeatedly lied about the ADL’s lobbying effort to defeat the congressional resolution. He then tried to interrupt an Arab American woman who was describing all the civil rights violations the ADL commits against Arab Americans. He was finally booed out of the Council Chambers.
Rumor has it, one Armenian fellow who is shorter than me (I'm 5 ft tall in my shoes) actually chased him down the hall. I didn't see it, but an unnamed member of the executive branch of our municipal government told me the story at an after hours meeting of the tri-lateral commission in a secret undisclosed location.
All told over 100 people were there. Mostly Armenians but a lot of others stood shoulder to shoulder with them. I suggested we take the sign down and ship it back to the ADL postage due. Other's took a less caustic approach and simply read from Foxman's anthology of asinine quotes. Suffice it to say that when the vote was finally taken the room exploded in applause. One Councilor asked the Town Manager to have the sign taken down first thing in the morning. But, within one hour of the vote, the sign was down thanks to an exceptional department of public works.
