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 … Continue reading Chicago Women’s March canceled

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 … Continue reading Tablet investigates the Women’s March

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 … Continue reading The Women’s March fragments even more

The good news and the bad: Sarsour, Mallory, and Bland out as Women’s March leaders, but Sarsour in as a Bernie Sanders “surrogate”

After both Tablet and and the New York Times exposed the anti-Semitism present among some Women’s March (WM) leaders dating from the group’s formation in 2016, the organization has been racked with disunity and discontent. None of the leaders, including Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Bob Bland, were free from the taint of anti-Semitism, … Continue reading The good news and the bad: Sarsour, Mallory, and Bland out as Women’s March leaders, but Sarsour in as a Bernie Sanders “surrogate”

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, … Continue reading Women’s March leaders continue their evasion and antisemitism

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 … Continue reading Democratic National Committee ends its sponsorship of Women’s March

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

This time the Women’s March is serious: anti-Semite Zahra Biloo kicked off the board

I could find this news only on right-wing and Israeli sites, and I’m not sure why other Western media didn’t report it. As I mentioned the other day, after the Women’s March dumped (euphemistically called “resignation”) three of its former leaders, Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Bob Bland, they appointed a diverse but much less … Continue reading This time the Women’s March is serious: anti-Semite Zahra Biloo kicked off the board

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

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