The leaders of the Women’s March are in hot water with their progressive peers for their association with radical “National of Islam” preacher Louis Farrakhan. At first glance, it seems like an odd choice for them given Farrakhan’s history of misogynistic and antisemitic comments. For those claiming to stand up for the oppressed, why do they tolerate bigotry when it comes to Farrakhan? If it had been a white man espousing the exact same anti-women, or antisemitic sentiments, they’d label the man a “Nazi” in a minute.
However, March leader Tamika Mallory, who calls Farrakhan the “greatest [person] of all time,” attended a Farrakhan speech in February where the man said Jews were “responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.”
He continued. “White folks are going down. I have pulled the cover off the eyes of the Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through. You good Jews better separate because the satanic ones will take you to hell with them because that’s where they are headed.”
Either the women’s march leaders are OK with such bigoted sentiments when it’s coming from their side – or they agree with parts of it. Recent comments from Mallory regarding Israel’s right to exist have me leaning towards the latter.
According to the Daily Wire:
On Friday, Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory – she of the Louis Farrakhan fandom – explained that she believes Israel ought not exist.
Following her trip to Israel and Palestine, and days before the big Israeli event @CelebrateIsrael #togetheron5th, TamikaDMallory answered critics and supporters who asked her if she believes Israel has a right to exist during pic.twitter.com/tEk1TChmgz

My soul would not rest, standing by and doing nothing about it, to know that the US government – my taxpayer’s money, $10 million a day – is going to a government [Israel], a military, that takes the lives of people who were there first. There are a lot of people who will say, “Do you believe that Israel has the right to exist?” I believe we all have a right to exist, I want to see all of us live in a free society, where we are all able to raise our families and to be fruitful and have occupations. This is not about stopping one side. This is about ensuring that the native people are able to enjoy their land. They shouldn’t ask anybody for their land! This is their land! When you go to someone’s home and you need a place to stay, you ask “Can I come into your home and can I stay here, and can we peacefully coexist?” You don’t walk into someone else’s home, needing a place. It’s clear you needed a place to go – cool, we got that! I hear that! But you don’t show up to somebody’s home, needing a place to stay, and decide that you’re going to throw them out and hurt the people who are on that land. And to kill, steal, and do whatever it is you’re gonna do to take that land! That to me is unfair. It’s a human rights crime.
So, she thinks that Israel has a right to exist… except not where Israel currently exists today. That’s some really specious reasoning, and really just means that Israel, as we know it today, shouldn’t exist.
Her comment attracted a surprisingly healthy amount of blowback, even among other liberals:

Tamika Mallory demonstrates here that she has no knowledge of the history of region prior to 1948 or of what happened in 48. No mention of British colonialism, Jews already in the region, Mizrahi refugees, the U.N. partisan plan for 2 states. This is a deeply ahistorical take. pic.twitter.com/CRaPXe3W1O

Women's March leader Tamika Mallory calls the home of Jewish people a "human rights crime." This isn't progressivism. It's racism in its ugliest form.
Fits right in with her antisemitic firebrand friend Louis Farrakhan. When will the Left disown them?
