OUTRAGE: Anti-Semite, Racist, Holocaust-belittler to Direct World War II Broadway Play

By Debbie Schlussel
News that anti-Semitic Holocaust-belittler Spike Lee will direct the World War II comedy-drama, “Stalag 17,” on Broadway is disturbing.
Lee has a history of anti-White racism, anti-Semitism, and belittling what happened in the Holocaust. So, it seems a bit hypocritical that Lee would accept the position directing the play (upon which “Hogan’s Heroes” was loosely based)–and even more outrageous that producers would hire him. It’s as obtuse as casting anti-Semite Vanessa Redgrave in the Holocaust movie, “Julia.”

Got Bigotry?

The 1951 play–about American prisoners of war written by former P.O.W.s, Donald Bevan and Edmund Trzcinski–is scheduled to arrive on Broadway in spring of next year.
As I’ve written about Spike Lee:

When his “4 Little Girls” documentary–about White racists bombing a Black church in 1963–lost out to “The Long Way Home” for an Academy Award, Lee whined that it was a “Holocaust movie” (and also about the establishment of Israel) and accused the Academy of failing to give Blacks due recognition. We learned his true feelings about Jews when, in 1998, Lee complained to AP that Michael Jackson had to change blatantly anti-Semitic lyrics to a song and apologize to Jews. He “was crucified!” Lee snorted. . . .
Spike Lee’s agenda . . . is an agenda with which we are all too familiar:
* 1990’s “Mo’ Better Blues,” in which Jews are evil, unsympathetic, racist stereotypes.
* 2002’s “Bamboozled”–Ditto.
* 1996’s “Get on the Bus”–Ditto, again. It celebrates Lee’s hero, racist loon Louis Farrakhan and his Million–or is that 300,000–Man March. A Jewish bus driver, who refuses to continue to drive because of Farrakhan’s blatant anti-Semitism, is the movie’s villain for doing so.
* And don’t forget “Malcolm X” (1992), which justifies the Black Islamic leader’s hatred of Whites and Jews.
About the only Lee film that isn’t “political” is his big 1999 dud, “Summer of Sam.” But even that is about Lee’s favorite kind of serial killer, a Jewish one.
Whites are frequent targets of Spike Lee, and this film is no exception. They are all racist wannabe slave owners and would own slaves, today, if allowed.

Incredibly (but actually not such a surprise), the New York Times seems to have forgotten all that and didn’t mention it in the announcement. Instead, the paper quotes Lee as saying he won’t cast rappers in the play:

50 Cent’s not going to be in this one.

Well, thank Heaven for small favors. If only Stalag 17 producers would “Do the Right Thing” and not have hired this professional racist punk.
Hiring Spike Lee to direct a World War II play is a slap in the face to all Americans who fought in that war, and all those–American and allied soldiers, and 11 million Holocaust victims– who died fighting in it.

Let’s see if the self-hating, upper Westside New York Jews are going to pay money to see a Spike Lee piece of garbage. In the real world Spike Lee would never get financing–his movies are crap.
AMEN. NOT ONLY WILL THEY PAY TO SEE IT, BUT I’LL BET THEY ARE AMONG THE PRODUCERS AND FINANCIERS OF THIS SHOW, WHO HIRED SPIKE LEE.

I can’t believe this. Stalag 17 is and was one of my favorite movies, and it’s going to be ruined by this piece of trash. Whoever hired Spike Lee to direct needs to get their head examined. BTW, Harry and The Animal are the Greatest characters ever!

Hollywood sure is wonderful. I can only think of coaches of pro teams where utter, repeated failure is rewarded.
Lee’s films, all very average, shallow, and simplistic, haven’t sold in years. Yet, dummies keep shelling out money for this twit. Amazing and not so amazing when it’s Hollywood.

I thought 50 Cent was an Israel supporter. Am I wrong? I wonder if that’s why Spike isn’t casting him.

Once again, the Hollywood/New York set’s cringing, patronizing fear of certain “scary” entities (in this case, Black Racists) trumps all good social and financial sense. No doubt that a huge percentage of the paying patrons of this performance will be there strictly out of a sense of duty, coupled with that all-encompassing dread that non-attendance will bring them accusations of racism which, in their minds, will flow through the atmosphere to every person of color within a 50-mile radius, thus subjecting the accused to continual threats and “drive-by’s” for the next 5 years.
It’s not easy being a “Liberal”…

Will Spike Flea do this version with an all-black cast?

FreethinkerNY on June 28, 2007 at 2:16 pm

That scene from On The Bus sticks out: the shlumpy Jewish bus driver slinks away from driving the blacks to DC because he thinks OJ is guilty. He says it all mumbly and apologetically…. Not well that one of the black characters drops the irrational, conspiratorial accusation at no one in particular that he’s afraid of Dachau and Auschwitz in America. A sub-par intellectual effort.

I can’t stand Spike Lee, but how is letting him direct “Stalag 17″ hypocritical? It’s about World War II, but it doesn’t focus on the Holocaust.
Even if it were, why couldn’t he direct it? It’s not as if he could rewrite it to reflect anti-semitic views. He’s still stuck with the anti-German script of the play.
This is more manufactured outrage.

I wanna *#$^ this man….no, I really do. He’s part of the destruction of black america. I know you all don’t encourage that sort of thing, but this is what it’s coming to now. They got the power…we don’t. They can do anything…we can only use words and it wouldn’t make a dent.

In defense of Malcolm X—ANYONE who read the autobio would have noticed that Nat Hentoff wrote the intro…a Jew who was good friends with Malcolm!
After the hajj Malcolm’s views changed drastically, and from those i’ve met who knew him, he DEFINITELY WAS NOT anti-Semitic afterwards, and i’m convinced he’d be against the terrorist Islamic movement that is in vogue now. If he wasn’t pro-Israel at the time of his death, Tali Hatuel’s case would have made him so!

Ditto.
EminemsRevenge, you beat me to it. First off, I consider the movie ‘Malcolm X’ to be one of the few modern classics. The movie clearly shows Malcolm X’s evolution from hatred to understanding; from divisiveness to unity of the races.

Why do these weirdos always get celebrated? I wouldn’t cross the street to see this guy’s movies.

steve ventry on June 29, 2007 at 12:18 pm

we’re waiting for a black person to stand up in front of spike lee and say “you are an anti semitic jerk!”

don’t hold your breath
