Stacey Abrams Tied to Funding Scheme for Anti-Israel Terrorist

(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) In her capacity as board member of the Marguerite Casey Foundation, Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams helped a terrorist-supporting anti-Israel academic win a $250,000 award from the foundation.

Abrams, who has received over $50,000 since 2020 for her work with the Foundation, presided over the distribution of $1.5 Million in prize money to the Foundation’s so-called Freedom Scholars, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

The 2021 Freedom Scholars include Amna Akbar, Angélica Cházaro, ‍Cathy Cohen, ‍Lorgia García Peña, ‍Orisanmi Burton, and Robin D. G. Kelley — the wokest of the woke academics.

Of special note, however is Kelley, Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of California Los Angeles, an anti-white and anti-capitalist hater of all things Israeli.

Kelley “praised the Palestine Liberation Organization . . . as ‘revolutionary combatants’ and ‘models for those of us dedicated to Black liberation and socialism’ in a 2016 article,” reported the Free Beacon.

Kelley is also an advisor for the U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, which seeks to spread the terrorist-supporting gospel of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.

In an April 2021 interview with the Washington Report, Kelley referred to Israel as an “apartheid” regime.

“First, no matter what, the term apartheid is applicable to Israel especially when we consider the U.N. definition of apartheid,” Kelley said.

“That the subjugation of Palestinians . . . is an act of apartheid, became increasingly clear to African-American activists.”

“Neither Abrams nor the foundation responded to inquiries on her involvement with the Freedom Scholars program,” the Beacon reported.

The mission of the Marguerite Casey Foundation, named after the sister of UPS founder Jim Casey, is to identify and undo “racism and white supremacy, on every level, in order to create an environment where acceptance, dignity and justice are experienced by all.”

Apparently, that mission includes funding activist academics who have encouraged violence against Israel and who have praised U.S.-designated terrorist groups as “models.”
