Do people still get blacklisted in America?
The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action has published a list of “organizations, corporations, publications, and celebrities that have lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to anti-gun organizations.” It features a lot of Jews and Jewish groups:
- American Jewish Committee
- American Jewish Congress
- Jewish Labor Committee
- National Council of Jewish Women
- Union of American Hebrew Congregations
- B’nai B’rith
- Central Conference of American Rabbis
- Rabbi Paul Menitaff
- Rabbi David Saperstein
- Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie
- Actor Ed Asner
- Actor and Producer Mel Brooks
- Actor Hal Linden
- Actor Leonard Nimoy
- Actor Jerry Seinfeld
- Actor Henry Winkler
- Mayor Ed Koch z’l
They have also blacklisted medical groups such as the Ambulatory Pediatric Association, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the National Association of Public Hospitals and the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as the League of Women Voters of the United States, and the National Association of Police Organizations.
Read the complete list. I think you will agree that this is the sort of “blacklist” any self-respecting organization would like to be on.
