Greenblatt Headed Obama Admin Agency, Soros-Funded Initiative Before ADL

November 20, 2016

There may be more than one reason for the stance of New York-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) National Director Jonathan Greenblatt against former Breitbart News CEO Stephen Bannon than just his deep concern about possible anti-Semitism on behalf of the organization he now leads, according to critics.

The ADL condemned President-elect Donald Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon as senior adviser and chief strategist in the White House last Tuesday. Greenblatt wrote in a statement that was quoted by The Washington Post, “It is a sad day when a man who presided over the premier website of the ‘alt-right’ — a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists — is slated to be a senior staff member in the ‘people’s house.’”

Greenblatt later walked back his statement, adding a qualifier that Bannon had not actually been found to have made any anti-Semitic statements “himself.”

But looking at Greenblatt’s resume, Aaron Klein of Breitbart discovered that the issue may be more one of politics rather than principle.

Greenblatt served as Director of the Impact Economy Initiative project at the Aspen Institute, which has been funded by George Soros through his Open Society Institute to the tune of a total of more than half a million dollars.
