Anne Frank Reimagined: Repulsive in Every Way
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!
…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!
