Anti-Defamation League tries to cover up its hypocrisy and bigotry
Either they changed their minds over at the ADL or there was a strange coincidence that the links went kaput at around the time that "Expelled" opened.
Hitler is now quoting Shakespeare!
"O', reason not the need!"
-- King Lear
"Hitler did not need Darwin to devise his heinous plan to exterminate the Jewish people. "
-- Abraham Foxman
I have previously noted that Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, posted an article denouncing the Darwin-to-Hitler "Darwin's Deadly Legacy" TV documentary of the Christian fundy Coral Ridge Ministries  . Well, the links to that article no longer work, so I presume that the ADL deleted it.
The ADL knew that it must either also attack the Darwin-to-Hitler message of the movie "Expelled" or be accused of hypocrisy, double-standardry, and anti-Christian bigotry. Instead of attacking "Expelled" (Ben Stein is Jewish and one of his supporters in the movie wears a yarmulke), the ADL decided to try to hide its hypocrisy, double-standardry, and bigotry by deleting the article attacking "Darwin's Deadly Legacy." But the ADL is not fooling anyone.
Abraham Foxman was unable to show that Darwin did not influence Hitler, so he tried to argue that Hitler did not "need" Darwin.
BTW, Foxman's post attacking "Darwin's Daily Legacy" has been widely quoted in attacks on the Darwin-to-Hitler message of "Expelled."
