ADL acquires investor network to increase leverage over corporations

JLens will now be run by the ADL

The Anti-Defamation League [ADL] is probably the largest and most well-funded censorship advocacy group in the USA.

In 2019, the Anti-Defamation League had total revenue of $91.8 million and net assets of $4.1 million. However, the ADL Foundation also had $22.7 million in revenue and net assets of $112.8 million.

National Director Jonathan Greenblatt was paid $417,699 and received further compensation of $53,462.

Now the ADL has acquired the “investor network” Jewish Lens [JLens]. The goal of this acquisition is to exert leverage over corporations. The idea is they will be able to direct a network of wealthy Jewish investors.

JLens says that the group facilitates “socially responsible investing” by checking to see if corporations abide by their “six Jewish values pillars.” The first pillar demands a willingness to censor other people. It says companies must have clear policies against “hate speech.” Of course, this is a nonsense term that can have any meaning whatsoever. What is considered “hate” is all relative to the political ideology of the person doing the censoring. The third pillar calls for discriminatory race-based hiring goals. The sixth pillar calls for support for Israel, a foreign country.

JLens claims that major Jewish foundations are investing money based on their guidelines.
