(Natural News) If you’re tired of seeing all the tacky pink hats and mindless protest placards littering your city’s streets year after year as part of the infamous “Women’s March” against President Donald Trump, you could be in for an early Christmas present this year.
A lengthy exposé published by Tablet Magazine reveals incredible turmoil within the ranks of the Women’s March, including what some accusers say are deeply-rooted anti-Semitic sentiments throughout the organization.
According to reports, Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez, the two heads of the Women’s March, both made anti-Semitic remarks at one of the organization’s first meetings back in 2016.
While supposedly all women are welcome to join the Women’s March, Mallory and Perez specifically excluded “Jewish women” from their core “unity principles.” Instead, the Women’s March chose to elicit support exclusively from “Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, Muslim women, and queer and trans women.”
From its very founding, in other words, the Women’s March appears to have been specifically anti-Jewish. Both Perez and Mallory had specified at the organization’s founding that Jewish people “bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people,” pointing to claims that “Jews were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade.”
There are no Jewish women on the Women’s March board
In addition to aligning itself against Jewish women, the Women’s March apparently also made it a policy not to hire any Jewish women to its board. Tablet Magazine used the word “refused” to describe how the Women’s March has allegedly rejected, at a systematic level, any acceptance of Jewish women to its ranks.
“There are no Jewish women on the board,” stated Mercy Morganfield, a feminist activist, when asked whether or not the Women’s March co-chairs are truly anti-Semitic. “They refused to put any on. Most of the Jewish people resigned and left. They refused to even put anti-Semitism in the unity principles.”
One of the Women’s March co-chairs, Linda Sarsour, recently issued an apology to Jews over the accusations, stating that the organization is “deeply sorry” for any harm it may have caused to Jewish women. She also reiterated the organization’s commitment to “fighting anti-Semitism.”
Tamika Mallory closely aligned with anti-Jewish leader Louis Farrakhan
But this may not be enough, considering lingering accusations that Mallory is closely aligned with Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan doesn’t beat around the bush in condemning Jewish people, and a photo exists of Mallory and Farrakhan smiling for the camera with Farrakhan’s arm around Mallory.
This, say accusers, just goes to show that the Women’s March is anti-Jewish, and could even be receiving funding from the Nation of Islam. Women’s March leaders, however, say that this isn’t the case at all.
“Women’s March has no relationship with or financial ties to the Nation of Islam,” the organization reportedly told Tablet Magazine via email. “We denounce anti-semitism, and there should be no confusion about that.”
“We attack the forces of evil, not the people doing evil. We understand our failure to clearly articulate this difference early – fighting anti-semitism vs. denouncing Farrakhan – has caused pain, and for that we are deeply sorry. We thank our critics for highlighting this lack of clarity so that we can do the work to undo the harm caused.”
Women’s March emails slew of news outlets demanding corrections and fact-checks
The controversy has sparked a whole lot of reporting across the internet about what the Women’s March may truly be about – so much so that the Women’s March has reportedly been contacting news outlets left and right with demands that corrections be made to align with fact-checks.
The Federalist‘s Sean Davis, for instance, received what reports are describing as “bizarre” correspondences from a Women’s March public relations firm asking that corrections be made to the paper’s reporting.
“Tablet is in the process of making several corrections to this story,” the email reads. “We have a list of fact checks we submitted to Tablet with corrections including screenshots that challenge the accuracy of the sources and the timeline included in the story,” it adds.
But as a caveat to these fact-checks, the same email demanded answers to a slew of questions, including a demand that correspondences be done “off the record.” The Women’s March is also demanding that an “agreement” first be “secure[d]” before proceeding.
These are strange requests, especially considering many of the people who received them merely shared the Tablet Magazine article through social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and didn’t necessarily write any of their own fresh content about the controversy.
“LOL at this ham-fisted, amateur PF response to @tabletmag’s expose on the anti-Semitism that forms the foundation of the Women’s March,” tweeted Davis after receiving this bizarre email correspondence.
“‘Promise to delete your tweet about an article we don’t like, and we might send you ‘facts’ you’re not allowed to publish because of journalism,'” he added in jest, joking about what the Women’s March email basically implied.
“This is very unusual,” commented Stephen Gutowski, a staff writer at Free Beacon who was similarly perplexed by the unusual correspondences by the Women’s March PR group.
“I don’t understand why they want me to go off the record if they have some sort of contradicting information. Heck, I didn’t even write the piece. I didn’t even tweet about it. I retweeted others who tweeted about it,” he added.
