Anne Frank Reimagined: Repulsive in Every Way

Director Stan Zimmerman’s production of the classic play “The Diary of Anne Frank,” seems to be an exercise in seeing just how many people this jackass can demean, denigrate, and degrade, while extolling the holy illegal alien as a paragon of virtuous struggle. Zimmerman’s effort to reimagine mangle the horrifying experience of a young woman and her family trying to avoid extermination is a cheap ploy to promote an onerous open borders agenda, while wrapping himself in the figurative pelts of Holocaust victims as protection against well-deserved condemnation.

The cast is a diverse (read: filled with an appropriate number of minorities) conglomeration of actors such as Keith Coogan (“Adventures in Babysitting”), Tasha Dixon (Miss Arizona USA), David Gurrola (“Insecure”), Heather Olt (“The Middle”), Raquenel (“My Life is a Telenovela”), Robert C. Raicch (“Are We There Yet?”), Teddi Shaffer (“The Open Book”), Raymond Abel Tomas, Emiliano Torres (“Shooter”) and introducing Genesis Ochoa as Anne Frank. But I don’t even care about that, as long as they do justice to Anne Frank – the face of the Nazis’ efforts to exterminate an entire people.

But justice is not what this opprobrious pile of virtue signaling turds is about.

Zimmerman’s unique take on the staging was inspired by the true story of a Jewish woman in Los Angeles who created a “Safe House” for a Latina mother and her two daughters after her husband was deported by ICE. The characters in the attic will be played by a LatinX cast.

First, despite my last name, I had to Google “LatinX” because, God help me, I’m not woke enough to keep up with the latest politically correct pablum out there. Could someone please stab my brain with a rusty spork, so that the image of this ridiculous definition is forever erased from my mind? PLEASE!

Latinx is a gender-neutral term sometimes used in lieu of Latino or Latina (referencing Latin American cultural or racial identity). The plural is Latinxs. The -x replaces the standard -o and -a endings in Spanish, Portuguese and related languages, which form nouns of the masculine and feminine genders, respectively. The term is a politicized neologism that has gained traction among advocacy groups intersectionally combining the identity politics of race and gender. Other forms such as Latin@ and Latine are also used.

Apparently, gender is now too offensive for some, so here you go.

Second, as a legal immigrant, this makes my soul die.

My family and I did not sneak into this country and then profess to love it even as our very first act was to violate the law of the nation we claim to love! My family and I escaped prosecution at the hands of an abusive tyrannical state. My family and I did not sneak across the border and demand entitlements. We abided by the law. We waited, and after months, we received authorization to come here.

So yes, as an immigrant, I find the twisting of Anne Frank’s story to compare a Jewish woman hiding someone who committed a crime (yes, entering this country without authorization to do so is an illegal act, and yes, if you do so, you are an illegal alien, and not an undocumented whatever) from the authorities with the story of innocent people being hunted down and slaughtered for the mere fact of their existence to be disgusting.

The only “crime” Anne Frank and her family committed was existing while Jewish.

Immigration authorities sending people who violated the laws of our nation back to where they came from cannot be compared (by anyone remotely sane) to sending millions of people to a fucking gas chamber and murdering them!

Temporarily holding kids and parents in a shelter, giving them food, water, and a place to sleep while performing background checks to ensure the security of all involved is certainly not the same as starving prisoners in a concentration camp!

This…

…is not the same as this, you hysterical, prevaricating fuckweasels!

But truth and facts apparently don’t matter when trying to foment outrage.

Maybe this travesty is Zimmerman’s mea culpa for being a writer on the original Roseanne show. But no matter what the reason, this is disgusting.

Cheapening the horror of mass extermination by comparing it to efforts to deport people whose very first act was to violate the immigration laws of this land by jumping ahead of those who have been waiting patiently to enter this country legally and become Americans is disgusting. And portraying a Jewish woman devaluing the experience of her people by reenacting Anne Frank and her family’s desperate attempt to avoid certain death illegal alien style is even more odious!

That is to say nothing of the vile attempt to degrade the efforts of men and women who work to protect our borders and who risk their lives, get shot by scum while patrolling along the border, and sometimes murdered, by comparing them to Nazis!

This play is an affront to everything decent and a slap in the face of history. Besides, aren’t these the same people who wail and gnash their teeth at the thought of anyone eating Chinese food because it’s cultural appropriation? So why is it they feel it’s OK to appropriate others’ suffering for their political purposes?

But I guess it’s something we should expect from the Hollyweird left that doesn’t care about facts or decency – not when their odious agenda is at stake!

    Excellent article. Thank you Marta.

  • Wes S. says:

    Call it what it is: Holocaust revisionism.

  • Ray Garcia says:

    Great article, and just further example of the left’s progression into uglier and more offensive actions to further an extremist agenda where America, the West, and every other straw man they can imagine is toxic, evil, and in need of revisionism.

    I definitely recognize exactly one of those movies, and maybe recognize one other. So, imo, another way to say that is:
    The cast is a diverse … conglomeration of wanna-bes such as…

    a politicized neologism
    Exactly. Which is why I will never use it. And if forced to, will pronounce the “x” in an exaggerated Greek fashion. (Imagine saying “Christ” with a lot more back-of-the-throat pleghmy sound in the ‘ch’.)

    and not just an undocumented whatever
    I add that because they *are* undocumented aliens. But they are also ILLEGAL aliens, which is more important than the fact they don’t have proper documentation.

    Immigration authorities sending people who violated the laws of our nation back to where they came from cannot be compared (by anyone remotely sane) to sending millions of people to a fucking gas chamber and murdering them!
    Well, maybe it remotely could, if said authorities were sending them back to a country that was going to put them in gas chambers and such. You know, like that Democrat paragon, FDR, did? (No, still not really as egregious, but it’s important to tweak them when you can.)

    is not the same as this
    Wow, we didn’t have a phone in our rooms at the Academy! We had to go down and ask to use the squadron line, or go to the pay phones in the rec hall. We didn’t have tvs, either – had to use the common room or, again, go to the rec hall.

    a slap in the face of history
    But, these are progressives, so history is unimportant, except as a cudgel against the people practicing wrongthink. Year Zero, baby! It’s the only good way to root out the kulaks!

    Nice one, Marta.

  • I can now understand why Hollywood used to blacklist Communists.

  • GWB says:

    This might not change anyone’s mind, but here’s an interesting take from Jeff Dunetz at the Lid Blog. (Formerly known as The Yid With Lid, I think.)

    Evidently, it’s intended to actually bring young people the story of Anne Frank, in the format of the original play The Diary of Anne Frank. And, while Dunetz says he disagrees strongly with the director’s politics…
    But there is something much more important to me than semantics, and that is the truth. And the truth is, while the story may be told by a Jewish woman and a family in the U.S. illegally hiding from ICE, what the audience will see and hear is the real undoctored script of “The Diary of Anne Frank” that was nominated for Tony Awards two decades ago.

    Personally, I read the whole thing.

    • Marta Hernandez says:

      I read it. Thank you for the link. I just happen to disagree with that take. The problem to me is that these young people will walk away with the impression that there’s equivalence. Young people today are a lot more impressionable and visual. Yes, it’s the same script (or whatever they call it on the stage), but in the audience’s mind, this will be equated with ICE and illegal aliens. They won’t give it a second thought.

      • GWB says:

        Yes, it provides a little different information from the people writing a bunch of the other stories. I can see some people coming away with a better impression that what has been discussed, but also that many – as you say – will see it entirely within the victimology/intersectionalty lens into which they’ve been indoctrinated. And, therefore, won’t come away with any sort of new thinking in their noggins.

        Oh, and a thank you to Marta and all the ladies for their well-mannered approaches to disagreement. You ladies really are the best!

        • Marta Hernandez says:

          Oh, you haven’t seen me go off when someone is a dick about disagreeing, my friend. I can get pretty prickly.

          But there’s always room for disagreement and discussion. If we all thought alike, it would be a pretty dull world. It’s when people become jerks about that I have problems and generally respond in kind… or worse.

          I know – please tell me how shocked you are!

  • These are the same pendejos carping on about “cultural appropriation”. No class, no shame, no brains.

    And “LatinX”? Has it occurred to the pizda who invented this that Spanish itself has no neuter gender and no time for any of this BS?
