Women’s March Group Disbands After Shocking Report Detailing Anti-Semitism, by Emily Zanotti.
Women’s March organizers in Washington state have announced that they are dissolving their chapter of the national Women’s March after an explosive report from Tablet Magazine which detailed rampant anti-Semitism in the national organization’s highest ranks.
The Washington Times reports that the Washington state Women’s March group — an active group within the organizations fifty-state system — could no longer abide blatant attacks on their Jewish members from some of the national group’s leaders, including Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, and Tamika Mallory. …
So why was it alright to go along before it was exposed big time? Why did it take so long?
The group’s spokeswoman took to Facebook to explain the “difficult” decision.
“Continuing to be a part of the Women’s March with the blatant bigotry they display would be breaking a promise,” she wrote. “We can’t betray our Jewish community by remaining a part of this organization.” …
See, opposing the crazies is like pushing on an open door:
The spokeswoman, Angie Beem, later told the Spokane Spokesman-Review that she could no longer abide Sarsour, Perez, and Mallory’s ties to Louis Farrakhan. Beem added that while she knows the decision to disband an active organization would come as a surprise to some of the group’s membership, she hasn’t gotten a lot of pushback on her decision to disengage from the national March.
“One of the things that has really surprised me is that I’m not getting a lot of pushback and a lot of hate,” she said. “That, to me, is almost a miracle.”
At least some of the left are ashamed of the antisemitism on the left.
