(Since Mr. Kaplan decided to come here and leave a nasty little comment on this old article… I decided to pin it to the front page just for giggles.)
What a piece of shit little bully Mr. Kaplan is.
Here’s a little creepiness for you. Lee Kaplan and what appears to be his buddy in hate, Becky Johnson (?) (same woman who sat around with him defaming Rachel Corrie on her public access show) showed up at the home of an activist group in California on June 24th 2012 and stood around in the street video taping people going in and out. They were obviously trying to intimidate the activists in their pathetic little way. At one point Kaplan claims he was making a documentary but to my knowledge he hasn’t made one at this point.
Also of note, the misogynist asks the girl he is taping if she is a male or female. Out of the blue he just does that while creepily following her across the street and then back again with his stupid little camera in her face.
This is the same guy who called Anna Baltzer a “whore” because she wrote “Witness in Palestine: A Jewish American Woman in the Occupied Territories“ when he wrote ” The Jewish whore for terrorists who defamed the legacy of her grandmother: the truth on Anna Baltzer” . He spent a great deal of time attacking her for her support of the Palestinian cause.
He also spends tremendous amounts of time lambasting the memory of Rachel Corrie claiming she was a liar and aiding terrorists.
He appears to relish attacking females, especially young ones, who dare to speak out against the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
When the young girl he is taping says “I am going to leave now and I hope you aren’t here for the purpose of hurting us or the house” brave Mr. Kaplan sarcastically replies “Heaven forbid” several times.
In the second video you can clearly see as he tries to intimidate yet another young girl, he is wearing a shirt that says “MOSSAD”
He tells that little girl “I like your tattoo. Very identifiable”.
What a piece of shit trying to scare young women at their homes. This guy must think America is already part of Israel.
In his own video of the encounter with several young women at the house, he claims they are “far-left”. Turns out Mr. Kaplan is aligned with far-far-right neoliberal reactionary groups. So far right in fact as to have driven the guy who runs Little Green Footballs away from them for being so far-right. Hmmmm….. far-right neoliberalism and a misogynist using old Mossad tactics to try to frighten people into submission. What a champion of democracy huh? Notice in his video, he edited out his own threats against the young women. Seems like he could work for the IDF… oh yeah, he did work for them once.
“Mrl Kaplan was a consultant to the Israelis during the Rachel Corrie publicity trial her parents tried to do in Israel and is mentioned in the 500 page court report.”
Notice in his video, he changed his “MOSSAD” shirt.
Here’s a video of him where he claims to be in Israel to “warn” the IDF and the Israeli government that the International Solidarity Movement is “a greater threat than Palestinian terrorism” and also there according to him, to give them all of his “intel” on the members so maybe they can be arrested (and whisked off to the black hole of Israeli prisons)
