ADL, Jewish Dems Slam Offensive Breitbart Attack
NJDC Calls on Author to Apologize
WASHINGTON, DC -- Today, the National Jewish Democratic Council, released the following statement in response to the Breitbart article titled, "Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew."
"While we disagree deeply with Bill Kristol on many issues, there is no question that Breitbart's attack on Mr. Kristol as a 'Renegade Jew' is completely unacceptable. The author of the piece, David Horowitz, specifically chose to include 'Renegade Jew' in the post’s headline and should know better. We share the widespread and growing disappointment – including by the Anti-Defamation League – in Breitbart's inappropriate and offensive headline and we believe that more must be done. Mr. Horowitz must apologize immediately and help ensure that these sort of attacks must not be allowed to become the new normal. Andrew Breitbart, z"l, would have been deeply ashamed."
