Well Known Democrat’s ART GALLERY Raises Questions
(RightWing.org) – Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman (D) is pushing hard to beat his Republican rival, Dr. Mehmet Oz, in the state’s senatorial race. As part of his charm offensive, the far-left candidate is claiming to be a strong supporter of Israel. However, the art he’s sponsored in the past tells a different story.
On the campaign trail, John Fetterman touts his "unwavering" support for Israel.
His nonprofit hosted an anti-Israel art exhibit that demonized Israel as an "apartheid state" and spread slanderous falsehoods about the Jewish state.

A recent article in the Washington Free Beacon quoted Fetterman saying he’s committed to “strengthening and enhancing the security of Israel” and has “unwavering” support for the Jewish state. His campaign told the Free Beacon that he’s always been pro-Israel. Unfortunately for Fetterman, there’s evidence that this isn’t entirely true.
One of Fetterman’s many projects is a nonprofit that runs an art gallery in Braddock, Pennsylvania. The gallery, UnSmoke Systems, is based in an old Catholic school that Fetterman acquired and repurposed in 2008. Since then, he’s used it to host exhibitions by a wide range of modern artists, mostly with a political agenda. In March 2012, he hosted an event called “I Am Palestine.”
“I Am Palestine” was produced by Sean Neely and Karina Goulordava, who said at the time her goal was to work as a “solidarity activist” in Palestine. The centerpiece of the exhibition was an “apartheid wall” representing the antiterrorist barrier that protects Israel from Palestinian terror attacks launched out of the West Bank.
In a press release promoting the exhibition, Goulordava and Neely claimed security is just a pretext for the confiscation of Palestinian land and resources; the whole piece has a strong anti-Israel slant.
If Fetterman is really a friend of Israel, why is he promoting this kind of politically-charged “art”?
