As our sister site RedState reported, the anti-Semitism of the Women’s March’s leadership has been costing the group some allies recently, with the organization being stripped of a human rights award that it was supposed to be awarded today in Germany.
Germany’s Friedrich Ebert Foundation rescinds award to Women’s March because its “organizers have repeatedly attracted attention through antisemitic statements, the trivialization of antisemitism and the exclusion of Zionists and Jews,” https://t.co/b5rvkdVYwl

And then there’s the Louis Farrakhan problem: if the Women’s March disagrees with his anti-Semitic views, why do we keep coming across that picture of co-founder Tamika Mallory getting a hug from Farrakhan and adding the caption, “Thank God this man is still alive and doing well. He is definitely the GOAT.” The greatest of all time, huh?
The Women’s March has posted a statement to Facebook which clarifies that the group’s leadership does not “support or endorse” his statements about women, Jews, and the LGBTQ community. So now all you conservatives can back off and stop trying to undermine the movement.
“We condemn Farrakhan’s rhetoric, yet we stand with two of his most vocal supporters.”
Say it with me: This ?? is ?? garbage??. https://t.co/mT09Z1kQMQ

They can get away with it because they’re liberal and will get a total pass from the media.

Their statement is pure tripe. When you willingly embrace evil, it is not someone else's fault.

Not good enough. It’s total bull that you think by denouncing Farrakhan’s “statements” instead of the man himself that this is enough. What if one of the organizers was friends with David Duke? Get it together! The fact that this is not a no-brainer for you is horrific.

The sad thing is that they didn’t even denounce Farrakhan’s comments. They just said that they don’t endorse them.

2 of your leaders are huge Farrakhan supporters. Sarsour has made it clear that in her view Zionism and feminism are irreconcilable. She recently declared that progressive values are incompatible w support for Israel. It is outrageous that her hatred defines the women’s movement

Evaluate Sarsour & Malloy on their behavior, statements & endorsements rather than immutable characteristics. If they are leading, this post is lying.

It's fun watching you try and deflect attention from your leaders by blaming right wingers. It isn't people on the right that's stopping Linda or Tamika from publically distancing themselves from Farrakhan.

If you are concerned about the right wing using “any tool” to attack the March, perhaps you should not make it easy for them by putting Jew-haters like Sarsour and Mallory in leadership roles ?

This was brought up by THE ADVOCATE, we're not on the right.

Sorry, Women’s March, you can’t blame conservatives for this one.
No biggie, just Louis Farrakhan leading a ‘Death to America’ chant in Iran https://t.co/rIweC2KUvB
