Farrakhan says that the “wicked Jews” are using him to attack the Women’s March

From the Jewish Telegraphic Agency we have a short report and a video showing a recent speech in Chicago by Louis Farrakahan—misogynist, racist, anti-Semite, and leader of the Nation of Islam (NoI). He blames the “wicked Jews” for trying to drive a wedge between him and the Women’s March (WM), presumably referring to the the […]

Women’s March leaders continue their evasion and antisemitism

The fact that I’ve posted so often on the Women’s March, Inc. (“WM”, the group headed by Perez, Bland, Mallory, and Sarsour) may make some readers think that I’m opposed to it or to its principles. But that is far from the truth, as I agree with nearly all the goals of the Women’s March, […]

Democratic National Committee ends its sponsorship of Women’s March

This announcement, which as of this moment I’ve found almost solely on right-wing websites (you won’t see it in the New York Times or PuffHo), is a serious blow to the Women’s March, since they’ve lost an arm of the Democratic Party, almost certainly because of the antisemitism of the women’s March leaders. This report […]

The Southern Poverty Law Center, EMILY’s List, and other groups dissolve ties with Women’s March

If Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Carmen Perez (SM&P) would simply resign as co-chairs of the Women’s March, Inc. (“WMI”, the original parent organization of the 2017 March), then the upcoming March, scheduled for January 19 in Washington, D.C., would be a lot more unified, stronger, and with a bigger crowd. But now the whole […]

The Women’s March fragments even more

The recent article in Tablet, “Is the Women’s March Melting Down?” (answer: yes), which revealed the anti-Semitism infusing the Women’s March (WM) leaders, as well as the resistance of women who reject that, may be a watershed moment for the Authoritarian Left. For once Leftists have pushed back against a group of women who demonize […]

Chicago Women’s March canceled

The “big” Women’s March, run by the Women’s March Inc. (a trademark now contested by other branches), will take place in Washington, D.C. on January 19, as well as in several other cities. But some cities won’t be having them, while others, like New York City, will have two marches, one for women of color […]

The NYT finally writes about anti-Semitism in the Women’s March

Eleven days after the Tablet article about the turmoil around the Women’s March (WM), reporting largely about the anti-Semitism of its leaders, the New York Times finally wrote about the issue (click on screenshot below). I can’t help but think that the paper’s hand was forced, as this story certainly deserved some coverage before, as […]

The Women’s March, Inc. tries to protect itself by unethically strong-arming journalists

Four days ago I reported on a Tablet article that investigated the Women’s March (WM) in detail, exposing the pervasive anti-Semitism of some of the leaders and their possible financial ties to the Nation of Islam (which accounts for three of the leaders cozying up to the racist, homophobic, and sexist bigot Louis Farakkhan). The […]

Tablet investigates the Women’s March

I’ve published a fair number of pieces (see here) criticizing the leadership of the Women’s March (WM), including Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and Carmen Perez—three of the four co-chairs—for cozying up to Louis Farrakhan, a bigot, a misogynist, a racist, and a homophobe. There have even been accusations, whose truth isn’t yet known, that the […]

Women’s March splintering over anti-Semitism, communications director mounts a bizarre defense

My beef with the Women’s March is not over its goals, which (I think) are to promote equality of women everywhere; I certainly agree with that. And in general I think the movement has been a net good: by promoting women’s activism in politics and society, it must have been at least partly responsible for […]
