After the publishing of an exposé of anti-Semitism in the Women’s March organization from the very first meeting, the group was so radioactive that even Alyssa Milano said she’d be skipping the 2019 march if the organizers didn’t set things right at the top.

With the next Women’s March coming up so quickly, this poses a moral conundrum: if they’re working to further women’s causes, is it OK to just be OK with anti-Semites running the thing? The L.A. Times seems to think it’s possible.

We at least have to give the L.A. Times credit for acknowledging that the first march was “a spontaneous eruption of rage” after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton. And we know the rage hasn’t died down much, but you’d think women (like Milano) would be having second thoughts about donning their pussy hats and following the lead of women who can’t even denounce the anti-Semitism of Louis Farrakhan.

So what’s the money quote here? Robin Abcarian writes:

Last March, according to a detailed account in Tablet, an online magazine that reports on Jewish news and culture, three of the Women’s March founders praised Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan during a conference call with leaders of the group’s state chapters, despite his abysmal record of anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia and sexism.

Personally, I find Farrakhan’s world view vile. Yet, I think it is possible to be repulsed by his hateful rhetoric about white people, especially Jews, and still appreciate some of the empowerment work that he has done in the black community, including leading the 1995 Million Man March to promote African American family unity.

If that is hypocrisy, there is plenty to go around.

Yes, and don’t forget that the Black Panther Party was known for its free breakfasts, too, according to Teen Vogue.

Unreal. “But Trump!” not only excuses anti-Semitism on the Left, but makes the L.A. Times.
