Anti-Semites Protest Israel-Backed Play At Lincoln Center

Font Size:

I don’t like anti-Semitism, no matter who’s doing it or why. The “ironic” anti-Semitism that the alt-right indulges in is ignorant garbage, and so is anti-Semitism thinly disguised as “anti-Zionism.” It’s all the same thing: Hating Jews.

But it’s okay when the good guys do it. Sopan Deb, NYT:

More than 60 artists, including four Pulitzer Prize winners and other prominent writers, actors, directors and playwrights, have signed an open letter calling on Lincoln Center to cancel performances of a play co-produced by two Israeli theater companies and backed by the Israeli government.

The play, “To the End of the Land,” is produced by the Cameri Theater of Tel Aviv and Ha’Bima National Theater of Israel…

The letter was organized by Adalah-NY, an advocacy group that calls for the boycott of Israel over its treatment of Palestinians…

The signatories to the letter include Annie Baker, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her 2014 play “The Flick”; Niall Buggy, a veteran actor; and the actress Greta Gerwig.

Remember those names. In 2017 America, you can proudly sign your own name to an anti-Semitic document as long as you’re striking from the left. You can express your Jew-hating views right out in the open. You don’t have to worry about CNN trying to dig up your identity, because they only pretend to care about anti-Semitism when doing so furthers their goals.

The left is sick. And it’s only going to get worse.
