Among the beneficiaries of the JCF’s far-right funding include notorious organizations such as Turning Point USA

I agree they can be a bit dodgy on the rhetoric, but I’d hardly classify them as “far right” (unless, of course, you yourself are so far left that Joe Biden looks like a fascist to you).

and the Tea Party Patriots Foundation

The Tea Party Patriots are a basically a small government economic alliance. Hardly “far right”. I’d characterize them as right-leaning centrist with a libertarian lean.

“anti-gay groups such as The Heritage Foundation”

Heritage is a conservative economic think tank. I agree they are probably not supportive of leftist LGTB policies, but I would have trouble classifying them as “anti-gay” without some decent examples of this.

Put another way, just because you’re not “pro-gay” does not mean that you’re “anti-gay”.

“and Southern Poverty Law Center-designated”

Remarkable that anyone still takes the SPLC seriously, after the lawsuits.

anti-Muslim groups such as ACT! for America and the Center for Security Policy.

But more broadly, considering the amount of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish rhetoric that comes from Muslim sources (being a Muslim myself, I am embarrassed to admit this), is it any surprise that a Jewish Organization would donate in an anti-Muslim pattern?

Seems kind of logical to me.
