MacArthur Foundation Gives ‘Genius’ Grant to Annie Baker, Organizer of Anti-Israel BDS Boycott at Lincoln Center

24

Why is it that antisemities, jihad sympathizers and supporters and radicals are lauded, exalted, and fawned over by the elites?

Neither I nor any of my colleagues would ever even be considered for such an award or grant. Ever.

“MacArthur Foundation Names 2017 ‘Genius’ Grant Winners,” by Jennifer Schuessler, New York Times, October 11, 2017 (thanks to Cheryl):

…The fellowship, which honors “exceptionally creative people,” comes with a no-strings-attached grant of $625,000, to be awarded over five years. It is known colloquially as the “genius” award, to the sometime annoyance of the foundation….

The honorees include relatively well-known figures in the arts, like the playwright Annie Baker, 36, who won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for “The Flick”…

Who is Annie Baker? A pro-BDS Jew-hater:

“Annie Baker, Caryl Churchill, Tracy Letts, Lynn Nottage and More Sign Letter in Protest of Israeli Government-Sponsored Shows at Lincoln Center,” Broadway World, July 5, 2017 (thanks to Cheryl):

In a letter made public today, more than 60 theater artists have called on Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, a leading US arts institution located in Manhattan, to cancel IsraEli Government-sponsored performances by two Israeli theater companies scheduled for July 24 – 27.

The signers of the letter have won numerous awards for their work in theater, including four Pulitzer Prizes, three Tony Awards, and nine Obie Awards. Follow this link to view the letter signed by artists and sent to Lincoln Center.

The letter signed by the artists asserts that the performances by Israel’s Ha’bima National Theatre and the Cameri Theater of Tel Aviv will help “the IsraEli Government to implement its systematic ‘Brand Israel’ strategy of employing arts and culture to divert attention from the state’s decades of violent colonization, brutal military occupation and denial of basic rights to the Palestinian people.”

Lincoln Center is advertising the performances by the Israeli theater companies as presented “With support of Israel’s Office of Cultural Affairs in North America.” The artists’ letter says that the performances are part of the IsraEli Government’s “Brand Israel” public relations strategy which, according to an Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs official, sends “well-known novelists and writers overseas, theater companies, exhibits…This way you show Israel’s prettier face, so we are not thought of purely in the context of war.”

The artists also criticize Ha’bima and Cameri theaters because, despite past opposition from artists, they say the organizations have repeatedly performed in and legitimized Israel’s illegal settlements built on Israeli-occupied Palestinian land.

The letter calls on Lincoln Center “to respect the Palestinian civil society call for a boycott of those Israeli cultural institutions that are complicit in the denial of Palestinian rights.”…

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker, a signatory to the letter, commented, “I think the phrase ‘cultural boycott’ scares people, and it’s important to remember that a) it’s not a boycott against individual artists or nationalities, and b) it has historical precedent as an extremely effective way to call attention to apartheid (yes, Israel is an apartheid state) and influence policy.”…

The Palestinian civil society movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) calls for an economic, cultural, and academic boycott of companies and institutions that are complicit in Israel’s denial of Palestinian rights until Israel respects the rights of Palestinians, whether living under Israeli military occupation, as unequal citizens of Israel, or as refugees who are denied their right to return to their homeland. The Palestinian BDS is modeled on the global boycott movement that helped to bring an end to apartheid in South Africa….

    we must thank the Airlines that decided to comply with the jihadi’s wishes http://tinyurl.com/y782l6r8

    Its Hilarious ! I have far more respect for this Airlines than the Left/liberal Loons running McArthur Foundation.

    • TD

      McArthur? (Gee i hope it’s not the general from WW2 who I respect. general mac arthur deserves better than this foundation.).

      Many regular folks don’t even know what BDS is. I’m not joking.
      The liberal media does not talk about BDS much because they are afraid that their liberal Jewish voters will be outraged and leave.

      For example, not many democrats want it known that BLACK LIVES MATTER has adopted a pro-BDS stance in their official platform.

      • TD

        Imagine if Chuck Shumer started yelling at BDS the way that he yells at Trump.
        it will cause many to leave the DNC. so he doesn’t.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The line between genius and imbecile is very thin. liberal democrats and other such dorks gravitate to the “imbecile” side, naturally.

    • TD

      Failed liberal Jimmy Carter is the reason why the “Apartheid” label on Israel has become part of far-left, and mainstream left ideology.

      And Black Lives Matter has officially adopted an anti-israel platform.

      The media almost never talks about this on TV, because it would divide the Democrat voters even more.

        Having been the worst American president ever and a well known anti Semite it is not surprising that he used a term that is far from fitting Israel’s treatment of the Ara s who live next door to the state. Israel got those lands they call occupied by winning a war against four Arab states, Israel did not go out and conquered those areas, it won them with blood and tear and the sacrifice of many young lives, it survived the attack and these who call for BDS so not forgive Israel for not only surviving but thriving. By the way Mr. Carter, that ungrateful P O S owes his life to Israeli scientists who created the medicine that saved his life after he developed cancer.

        • Fromafar

          JC is now officially the SECOND worst POTUS.
          His disciple Barak Obama now is the clear “winner” in that dept.

          • I agree entirely. I never thought we would have a more antisemitic president while Jimmy was in, until Obama got elected. Boy was I wrong.

  • Jim Austin

    As liberals have moved leftward over the past half century, they’ve taken an increasingly tolerant and indulgent stance towards anti-Semitism. They now show all signs of embracing anti-Semitism.

    Liberals now actively fostered anti-Semitism in places where they dominate most: universities and colleges where foster and encourage BDS type outfits as wll as harassment of Jews. Nowadays, liberals don’t even bother to feign outrage over anti-Semitism unless the alleged offender is pro-Israel.

    • notme123

      And they call Trump a Nazi!

    • carpe diem 36

      The universities of today are no more places of higher education and real learning, they are nothing but re-education camps just like the Gulags.

  • Emmett

    So this low- life scumbag, is really good at vomiting out STALINIST- NAZI propaganda ! I vote for drop- shipping this HUMAN FUC&ING GARBAGE to either mECCA or PINGYANG, and I mean literally drop- shipping this SCUMBAG !!!!

    Door to Jew hating is wide open, once again it has become respectable and trendy!

    • frosty7530

      Yes Redwood U R 100% correct. I blame Jimmy Carter for much of this when the respected ex president wrote his best seller on Apartheid. Soon other respected antisemites came out of the closet. Most recently is Linda Sarsour, the new darling of the group. New York’s mayor, and popular NY Sen. Gillabrand adore this rabid Jew Hater. American Jews must look at the people supporting this woman and vote them out of office. Everybody supporting her must be looked upon as antisemitic.

      • carpe diem 36

        “respected antisemites” respected by whom? not by the decent and intelligent people.

    • carpe diem 36

      Only the left is a Jew hater, they hate real intelligence and real enterprise which is how Jews do things.

    she ought to stick to doing what she does best, write plays and suck dikk.

    • carpe diem 36

      No! Israel is not an apartheid state, it has many Arabs living in Israel with full rights, they are court judges, members of the Knesset and just plain citizens with full rights and you cannot tell a Israeli Arab from an Osraeli Jew. I visited a pharmacy in a town close to Tel Aviv and a woman handed to me a medicine. After we left my gosh told me that she, the pharmacist, was an Arab woman and that there are many women pharmacists in Israel who are Arabs. What kind of apartheid is that? I am sure South Africa. Blacks would have loved this kind instead of the So. African kind.

  • Alleged-Comment

    The lieberals and the left have many awards to give – to those like them. BUT, the big question is where are they getting their monies and grants?

    From you and I. Phony taxes, buying their sh it products and what not. So you support them and they turn traitor on you. Why? I don’t know why…. I just know it is.

  • Wulf2000

    So, this little genius supports the Palistinian government in the West Bank which is totally corrupt and Hamas in Gaza which is a terrorist organization and Israel is the problem.

  • iprazhm

    Either the MacArthur Foundation employees imbeciles or it’s a fascist organization. Neither justifies it’s existence.

  • The answer to the first question is that they are all children of the devil. Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear understand this.
