Hate group Woodrow Wilson Center financed by US taxpayers

The global left such as the Woodrow Wilson Center is part human and part animal (see also culture of soccer) and enabled by the US taxpayer. Elitists spew bile about America: 

6/18/10, "Turkey's hollow prize," Forbes, Claudia Rosett

"With the (Woodrow) Wilson Center giving (Turkey's) Sahenk its Award for Corporate Citizenship, have Sahenk or any of his Turkish cohorts pledged money to the Wilson Center? When I asked that question of the Center on Thursday afternoon, apparently no one could say,
  • despite 12 "development" workers listed on the staff. I was passed along to another spokeswoman, who said she would look into it, but "People have to jump through hoops to get this information."
The way the Wilson Center puts it, Congress has been urging them "to raise more funding from private sources." Another way of looking at it, however, is that
  • into an ability to raise additional tens of millions all over the map--
  • but to keep growing, it wants yet more.
Among the top donors listed in the Center's 2008-09 annual report, chipping in amounts for that period ranging from $100,000 to $2.5 million apiece, are
  • several that are themselves funded by U.S. tax dollars.
These include the U.S. Agency for International Development,
  • the U.S. State Department and
  • the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) (which receives hundreds of millions annually from the U.S. government).
Other top donors include: George Soros's Open Society Institute, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Exxon Mobil Corporation ( XOM - news - people ), the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Embassy of Mexico, Brazil's Grupo EBX , South Korea's LG Electronics, the Fellowship Fund for Pakistan and "Anonymous." United Airlines is listed as "The Official and Exclusive Airline Sponsor of the Woodrow Wilson Awards and the Woodrow Wilson Center."

Now comes the Davutoglu award, with its message that the Wilson Center in bestowing its favors is willing to treat

even the most flagrantly anti-American views (and deeds) as irrelevant, while collecting money around the globe.
    Why should Congress keep fueling this morally blank,
    • misleading and venal exercise with
    • millions of American tax dollars?
