Arab-American ADC Washington Convention Disaster

2015-06-12 10.33.18They’ve been at it for 35 years! Yet they are much weaker now and without significant grass roots then when they began…and definitely lacking any real impact.   The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee, ADC, gathered in Washington this weekend for annual convention 35, and by any serious measurement standard it was a disaster.   Take for instance the opening Friday morning session which featured luminary Ralph Nader.   It was attended by only about 60 persons, half it appeared retired folk along with some ADC staff and interns and friends.    Nader as usual had pithy important things to say,  however the event itself was oh so embarrassing.   Worse yet, the advice Nader repeatedly gave them about what they should be doing is pretty much the opposite of what they have been doing — but nobody even seriously bothered to discuss that!
