ADL Updates Hate Symbols Database

The ADL, a Jewish NGO, has issued a new edict in which it has unilaterally declared 36 new symbols, slogans, numbers and memes to be “hate symbols.”


“Newly added symbols, slogans and memes in ADL’s “Hate on Display” resource include:

The “OK” hand symbol – Begun as a hoax by members of the website 4chan, the OK symbol became a popular trolling tactic. By 2019, the symbol was being used in some circles as a sincere expression of white supremacy. Australian white supremacist Brenton Tarrant flashed the symbol during his March 2019 courtroom appearance soon after his arrest for allegedly murdering 50 people in mosques in Christchurch. …

Dylann Roof’s “Bowlcut” – The “Bowlcut” is an image of a bowl-shaped haircut resembling the one worn by white supremacist mass killer Dylann Roof. Those who use the bowlcut image or other “bowl” references admire Roof and call for others to emulate his 2015 mass shooting attack at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. …

“Anudda Shoah” – An anti-Semitic phrase that first became popular among white supremacists in 2014 to mock Jews, whom they claim bring up the Holocaust (“Shoah” is the Hebrew term for Holocaust) when confronted with anything they don’t like. …”

The bowl cut is now officially “a symbol of hate.”

The ADL list also includes the “OK” hand symbol, Moonman, “Annudah Shoah,” the numbers 12, 14, 18, 43 and 83, the acronym ACAB (“All Cops Are Bastards”), Anti-Antifa Images, the Confederate flag and It’s Okay To Be White. The League of the South black cross and the American Identity Movement logo also made the list of banned hate symbols.


“The “OK” hand gesture, commonly seen as a way of indicating that all is well, has now been classified as something else: a symbol of hate.

On Thursday, the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights organization, added 36 symbols to its “Hate on Display” database including the index finger-to-thumb sign that in some corners of the Internet has become associated with white supremacy and the far right.

Oren Segal, director of the ADL’s Center on Extremism, told NPR that for years on fringe online message boards such as 4chan and 8chan, the “OK” sign has been deployed in memes and other images promoting hate. Given the number of white supremacists who have adopted it, he said it can now carry a nefarious message. …”

After the ADL sent out its marching orders, the story was dutifully reported by NPR, CNN, The Daily Beast, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, USA Today, Time, CBS News and other outlets. Who gave a Jewish NGO the power to define and blacklist “hate” though? Why does the entire mainstream media push the ADL’s narrative?

  1. All Americans with five fingers on at least one hand are now officially haters, according to the ADL. And all kids who get bad haircuts from their moms.

  2. Says the organization that still defends a convicted child molester and murderer and then tries to pin the blame on an innocent black man. Furthermore, I’m labeling the Star of David as a hate symbol. This symbol of hate and intolerance is flown while persecuting and genociding the Palestinian people.

  3. Let’s not pretend these memes aren’t used by edgy shitposters to hint at violence in a really pathetic passive-aggressive way. Moonman is particularly lame. As for the “fashy” okay gesture, yes that was indeed a silly little gang sign for membership in the kosher, Muslim-hating grift-right. The Christchurch terrorist considered himself part of that community which is why he flashed it for the cameras. That gesture is linked to mass murder now and there is no point in denying it.

    Instead of getting outraged at what the ADL considers a “hate” symbol why don’t white men attempt to build a culture that consists of more than just sending pictures of smug cartoon frogs to each other? We’re not going to get anywhere with this stupid infantile meme culture.

  4. Next thing you know, you’ll have to register with zog to buy Cool-Whip. The ADL doesn’t want any hateful haircuts made by using the empty bowl packaging.

    In anyplace but Clownworld, the yarmulke would be ultimate symbol hate worldwide. After all, the parasitic vermin that wears that head covering are guilty if the crimes against humanity both before and after the fact in their leading hand in White erasure/Great Replacement/White Genocie the ethnic cleansing of the native Palestinians, and launching wars of aggression and conquest.

  5. Moses Horowitz, better known as “Moe Howard” is now officially deemed a White Supremacist, postmortem. Oy Vey!

      • You’re Right! I saw Rodney Dangerfield flash that White Power sign in “Caddyshack.” I’m fairly certain that I’ve seen Mel Brooks use it too. Hollywood is overrun with Anti-Semitic, Racists!!!
        It’s annuda Shoah!

  6. Wow, the “annoda shoah” description was shockingly accurate. It’s surprising they would even say it because to any normal person they would have to think “oh yeah…Jews really do do that”.

  7. “Let’s not pretend these memes aren’t used by edgy shitposters to hint at violence.”
    Like diversity of tactics, right? Max security no bail (antifa-gs exempted, as always). ADL increasingly creating a “database” that incriminates every single non-traitorous white person for whatever they do, say, or even how they move their hands, couple with the push for red flag law, flagrant incarceration without bail becoming the norm, any mild pro-white sentiment (even anti-replacement sentiment) becoming “terrorism” according to DHS, yep it’s a silly McDonalds commercial meme that is pushing for violence. As for building a culture – in principle it’s a marvelous idea. In today’s reality it’s one globohomo asshole’s phone call and subsequent SWATting away from being annihilated by force. Remember that we did build a culture once, a mighty one, and it is a rotting corpse.

  8. O/T, IMO, this new format is not very user friendly. The previous one was. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

  9. The ADL and it’s tools in the Jewish Liberal Media will use this as a weapon of Censorship against White Nationalists. Of course some of these symbols like the ok symbol and the haircut is nothing but a joke. It’s just the ADL and others making something out of nothing. However people will actually take the ADL serious and delete people off social media for these and other symbols. I’ve seen it time and time again with the Klan, Skinheads, Southern Nationalists, and White Nationalists. The Celtic Cross in it’s WN use or WPWW Celtic Cross is banned by Facebook. That and many other symbols. It’s only a matter of time before the Confederate Flag is banned by Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube. Deo Vindice !

    • Really, this silly, anti-White nonsense is laughable except that “conservatives” will bow to it for fear of being labeled anti-Semitic if they don’t. Abe Foxman must be horse laughing over all the dumb goyim for groveling before him.

  10. How can they seriously say ‘love your race’ or any other a hate symbol or slogan, they’re inanimate objects? The brainwashing goes deep wanting us to hate ourselves like many already do. This is getting way out of hand. The ADL should be put on a hate list or watch from our own .gov. From what I’ve and many seen, they are the biggest haters and agitators of hate. If anyone of our so called representatives or senators had the guts to call out the terrorist ADL on their version of hate in Amerika they would go down in history. But instead they cower and grovel being the bitch they are to the ADL and the like. I’m starting to believe the power these people have isn’t just money but maybe satanic witch spells? I know it sounds crazy but in today’s world anything is possible.

    As I said before many hate themselves as Mark Collett pointed out in a recent video, a White woman got a huge tattoo on her stomach of baby in its own blood with a knife through its head. That’s how far down our peoples have become. You got to ask how and why?
