Described as “three days of dynamic programming exploring the intersections of art and social justice,” and to “inspire” social change, a conference pulling together a who’s-who of mainstream far-leftism is scheduled to be held at the Brooklyn Museum later this month.

Sponsored by The Open Society Foundation, a non-profit organization founded and funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros, and co-sponsored by JPMorgan, the event will run from Oct. 19 through to Oct. 21.

Democratic Senator Gillibrand is to be the keynote speaker at the event. The New York Senator recently pulled her endorsement of the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, a bill that was introduced to reinforce bipartisan consensus that boycotting Israel is inimical to U.S. foreign policy interests.

The event appears to skew heavily toward anti-Israeli activists.

The co-founders of Black Lives Matter, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, will both be giving speeches. Both women have been outspoken about their condemnation of Israel on social media. Garza congratulated the Chicago Dyke March organizers for kicking out two Jewish marchers from the event last summer.

Linda Sarsour, a Muslim feminist, and Bob Bland will be offering “The Resistance Revival” Workshop.

Murad Awawdeh, the director of political engagement at the New York Immigration Coalition, will also be speaking at the conference. A staunch supporter of Sarsour, Awawdeh has called Israel “racist, apartheid, hostile, [sic] terrorist state not interested in peace.”

The speaker’s list also includes Open Society’s Senior program officer, Alvin Starks, and Neera Tanden, the head of the Center for American Progress.

Dawn Laguens, Planned Parenthood’s executive vice president and chief brand and experience officer, is scheduled to give a talk at the conference as well.

The annual feminist Sackler Center First Awards will be held on the first night of the conference. Last year’s awardee was Angela Davis, a communist activist and Black Panthers supporter.

Co-sponsor JPMorgan is no stranger to supporting far-left causes, either. Earlier this year the behemoth bank pledged $1 million to the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center.

Tickets to the social justice soiree are $65 and non-refundable.

Party on, comrades.

    Good Lord that sounds about as fun filled as having Thanksgiving w/a college Freshman pontificating throughout dinner.

    Revolting. But if conservatives showed up to riot, smash windows, set property on fire, and attack attendees, every one of them would be arrested.

      Where is a hotel room with 27 guns with bump stocks when you need them!

  • Jean Collier

    Why is anyone anti-Israel, except terrorists?

    • Anders Robertsson

      How about the repression of Palestinians*. I don’t envy their internal and external terrorist threats but come on. Israel is not without its faults.

      *yeah yeah I know not a state, terrorists or whatever

      • Magister Judah Pepewitz

        Repression of Palestinians? LOL. You realize that the Palestinian thing is just one more avenue for Islam to attack non-Muslims? Just another Islamic agenda.

        The Arab Muslims erased Jews and Christians from most of the Middle East. We’re worried about Israel and Palestinians now? haha

      • Ruth Gauthier

        Yes the repression of Palestinians who could not get help from any of their fellow Muslims.

      • HT

        Look, no offense, but Palestinians are like the Arab version of gypsies. Never had a real permanent home, never will. Hell, even other Arab states don’t want them. There’s a reason for that.

  • True.Epic.Crusader

    Since we are talking about literal terrorists and ennemies of the state, all conveniently collected in one location, wouldn’t it be great if a well-organized militia, numbering in the thousands, were to show up and dispose of every last one of these turds? This is what the 2nd ammendment was created for.

  • Sabina

    That there is a target-rich environment.

    Have you hired a new editor/writer Milo? Noticing a sudden improvement in the prose and proofreading of your website…

    “BROOKLYN BRACES FOR BOLSHEVIK BACCHANALIA” Seriously, that’s brilliant. Give him/her a raise whoever they are.

  • Syrkai

    Stephen Paddock should have passed on Vegas for this event.

  • ranterator

    Too bad the whole lot of them can’t be rounded up and sent to Venezualia. Don’t hear much about that collapsing communist country in the news anymore….

    • Ruth Gauthier

      you mean sent to the Antarctic. They could have their own country, at least until they froze or starved to death. They can even make a safe place with penguins

  • Magister Judah Pepewitz

    Wow. How fast can we get a super gigantic Pinochet’s Helicopter built for this event?

  • Ruth Gauthier

    Oh how i wish I were young and able, I would go and screw with them, Just image what you would do there.

  • Kimmy3

    It all makes sense now. When I was a girl new to university campus in the early 80s I used to see these flyers for pro Palestine, anti Israel lectures. And the ones advocating the release of some convicted felon in prison for murder and he was always Arab. Then, starting around 1986 or 87 it was all about political correctness at my uber liberal university. Now, I see that it was the beginning of the long road for the new American Marxists to take power.
