Now in its third year, the Women’s March (WM) is tainted by a recently revealed dark secret. It tells a story of evil influence ultimately being unmasked but deceitfully repackaged. WM’s latest action belies the sinister intent remaining within.
The current WM leaders are Linda Sarsour, who is Muslim, Tamika Mallory, who is black, Carmen Perez, who is Latina, and Bob Bland, who is the token Caucasian. At their first planning meeting in 2016, Mallory and Perez verbally pounded WM co-founder Vanessa Wruble, who is Jewish, hitting her with myths popularly espoused by Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan. Myths that America’s white Jews were responsible for slavery, were aggregating their wealth and were a driving force behind white supremacy were all voiced. Despite knowing what it is like to be an oppressed Jewish woman, Wruble was rebuked by Mallory and Perez who told her Jews were part of America’s alleged systemic racism. This anti-Semitic undertone was kept quiet. But, by 2018, Wruble was forced out of the organization.
The first Women’s March occurred in January 2017 – the biggest protest in U.S. history: 2.9 million marchers unified in purpose despite their vast diversity. Its third march was just held Jan 19.
On its website, WM states the following: “The Women’s March on Washington is a women-led movement bringing together people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations, disabilities and backgrounds in our nation’s capital on Jan. 19, 2019, to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our bold message of resistance and self-determination.”
Thus, the catalyst for all who join the march is to promote gender equality and women’s rights. Understandably, such a cause is the movement’s unification “glue.” This was the unequivocal intention of WM co-founder Teresa Shook.
However, during the past year, we have learned all was not right within the organization as the planning session referenced above indicated. That session clearly reflected the view some members of the organization considered others less equal. When given an opportunity recently to set the record straight, the leaders failed to do so, instead opting to apply a Band-Aid to a sucking inequality wound.
As Farrakhan has been a mentor for the WM leadership from its inception, there should be no surprise anti-Semitism brews within. Farrakhan has long been known for his anti-Semitic views, just last year comparing Jews to “termites” in a sermon.
The most vocal WM leader is Sarsour who has a long history of anti-Semitism. Apparently, she had no hesitation to share her real thoughts about Jews speaking to a Muslim audience last September. Addressing the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas, she said Jews are not human.
Sarsour used the most recent march to push her anti-Israel agenda, spewing anti-Semitism. She promoted Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) – a movement against Israel seeking to isolate the country economically and which, by its very nature, is anti-Semitic. This mindset is further underscored by her embrace of Shariah, which incorporates numerous anti-Semitic tenets.
Lest there be lingering doubt about her anti-Semitism, Sarsour posted an article on Facebook claiming the “Jewish community” is waging a “profound war on black people.” The basis for this absurdity is an alleged bias by white Jews evidenced by their having called out WM leadership’s support for Farrakhan.
Meanwhile, Mallory has refused to condemn Farrakhan for his anti-Semitic statements. While she had previously described him as “GOAT” (meaning the “greatest of all time”), she shifted the spotlight on the issue, praising Farrakhan for all he supposedly does for black communities.
Interviewed on “The View,” Mallory was asked outright by Meghan McCain if she would condemn Farrakhan’s comments. She refused. Mallory claimed, “To be very clear, it’s not the way that I speak. …” Unbelievably, Mallory would later outrageously accuse McCain of being racist for pressing her on the Farrakhan issue.
But Mallory’s anti-Semitism goes beyond her Farrakhan ties. She has also refused directly to affirm Israel’s right to exist.
Apparently, the Farrakhan anti-Semitic issue and his WM ties finally received enough attention that the Democratic National Committee felt compelled to pull its support for the women’s organization. The fact leftist groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, Emily’s List and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., joined the withdrawal is most telling. Schultz calls out Farrakhan and his supporters “outspoken peddlers of hate.”
In the wake of WM’s Farrakhan ties being brought to light, Sarsour apologized for what she said was “confusion and critiques over the values and direction of Women’s March.” She added, “We should have been faster and clearer in helping people understand our values and our commitment to fighting anti-Semitism. We regret that.”
Sadly, there will be those who buy off on Sarsour’s apologetic hogwash. A leopard cannot change its spots – and Sarsour’s spots are anti-Semitic to the core. Having proclaimed just last year Jews are not human, the Farrakhan issue did not cause her to undergo an epiphany. Her Quran commits her to hate all Jews, which was the basis for her ISNA speech dehumanizing them. And her religion, through the practice of taqiyya, grants her the right to offer an insincere apology in furtherance of Islam’s goals – one of which is the eradication of Jews.
WM founder Shook, recognizing the organization’s undercurrent of anti-Semitism, has called for its leaders to step down. This would be a severe blow to the likes of Sarsour who needs the WM as a platform to spread her intolerance under the organization’s tolerance umbrella.
In addition to issuing an insincere apology, Sarsour and cohorts have taken a deceiving step, allowing them surreptitiously to continue peddling their white-Jewish hatred while giving the appearance of an attitude change.
While WM appointed three new Jewish board members, their selection reveals Sarsour’s continuing influence: Not one of them is white.
Sarsour and her ilk truly believe their critics will lose interest, allowing them to continue their anti-white Jewish campaign. Hopefully, they will be proven wrong and a groundswell movement will gain strength to knock these peddlers of hate off their perches.
