Yesterday I noted the number of Jewish philanthropies which claim to support Israel but fill the coffers of Media Matters, the anti-semitic, anti Israeli propaganda outfit . Today Big Government begins looking at individual Jewish philanthropists doing the same thing. J. B. Pritzker for example . Why stop there though the chart of donors is full of them. Keep at it guys.
Among other civic and philanthropic causes, Pritzker is heavily involved in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which promotes a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. He has served on AIPAC’s national board, regularly chairs AIPAC events in Chicago, and attends the organization’s annual Policy Conference in Washington, D.C.
Given his devotion to a strong U.S.-Israel alliance, it is extraordinary to discover that Pritzker also contributed heavily to Media Matters for America. Through the Pritzker Family Foundation, which he leads, J.B. Pritzker has given $150,000 to Media Matters for America–$50,000 in 2008 and $100,000 in 2009, according to public records analyzed by Big Government.
Take a peek for example at Stephen M. Silberstein Foundation which contributed $2,225,000 to Brock’s hate machine from 2003 to 2010. Or Barbara Streisand whose foundation kicked in $85,000.
