Tablet Magazine: The Origin of the Women's March is a Story of Virulent Antisemitism

And also anti-white racism, if anyone cares about that.

Which they don't. Because Intersectionality.

In fact, they've pretty much nominated Jews as "super-whites" so even hardcore antisemtism is now okay too.

Four white women, one of them Jewish, wanted to put on an anti-Trump rally but then feared they were too white.

So they reached out to some kind of media fixer named Michael Skolnik, who gained notoriety due to his connections to Russell Simmons (himself a supporter of Louis Farrakhan), to ask him to recommend women of color to add to their group. (Apparently, these liberal white women didn't know any-- what a shock.)

And what they got were loud-and-proud antisemites, and Linda Sarsour hadn't even joined yet.


According to several sources, it was there--in the first hours of the first meeting for what would become the Women’s March--that something happened that was so shameful to many of those who witnessed it, they chose to bury it like a family secret. Almost two years would pass before anyone present would speak about it.

It was there that, as the women were opening up about their backgrounds and personal investments in creating a resistance movement to Trump, Perez and Mallory allegedly first asserted that Jewish people bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people--and even, according to a close secondhand source, claimed that Jews were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade. These are canards popularized by The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, a book published by Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam --"the bible of the new anti-Semitism," according to Henry Louis Gates Jr., who noted in 1992: "Among significant sectors of the black community, this brief has become a credo of a new philosophy of black self-affirmation."

To this day, Mallory and Bland deny any such statements were ever uttered, either at the first meeting or at Mallory's apartment...

None of the other women in attendance would speak openly to Tablet about the meeting, but multiple sources with knowledge of what happened confirmed the story...

As its fame grew, so did the questions about the Women’s March’s origin story--including, at first privately within the inner circles of the organizations, questions pertaining to the possible anti-Jewish statement made at that very first meeting.

...

Kirsten Gillibrand, proud antisemite:

Fortune magazine named Mallory, Linda Sarsour, Perez, and Bland to its list of the World's Greatest Leaders, and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand--in explaining why these four were on Time magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People--wrote: "The Women’s March was the most inspiring and transformational moment I've ever witnessed in politics … and it happened because four extraordinary women--Tamika Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour--had the courage to take on something big, important and urgent, and never gave up." In conclusion, the senator declared, "these women are the suffragists of our time."

Although the Women's March and its antisemitic media enablers covered all this up and claimed it was all right-wing hallucinations, these charges were made the most frequently by liberal women in the organization, including by minority women:

Mercy Morganfield, a longtime activist and daughter of blues legend Muddy Waters, has been one of the leading voices in calling for accountability from the co-chairs. For Morganfield, a former spokesperson for the Women’s March who also ran the D.C. branch, the various problems that people have had with the Women’s March--ideological, managerial, fiscal--should be seen as all of a piece. She recalled being startled earlier this year when Mallory--already a nationally recognized leader of the Women's March--showed up at the Nation of Islam's Saviours" Day event. "When all of that went down, it was my last straw," she told Tablet. “You are part of a national movement that is about the equality of women and you are sitting in the front row listening to a man say women belong in the kitchen and you're nodding your head saying amen! I told them over and over again: It's fine to be religious, but there is no place for religion in its radical forms inside of a national women's movement with so many types of women. It spoke to their inexperience and inability to hold this at a national stage. That is judgment, and you can't teach judgment."

Then the Women's March listed all different sorts of women it would be marching for... but pointedly omitted Jewish ones:

Questions also began to emerge about the ideological values upon which the movement was being built. On Jan. 12, the Women’s March made public their Unity Principles, which asserted: "We must create a society in which women, in particular women--in particular Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, Muslim women, and queer and trans women--are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments"” Numerous observers noted the absence of "Jewish" from the list of signifiers, and began questioning whether it signaled something about whether and how warmly American Jews--the vast majority of whom vote and identify as Democrats--would be welcomed in a changing left.

After the success of the first Women's March in DC, the leaders of the organization turned to fighting the Patriarch and Jews, but mostly Jews:

They should have been basking in the afterglow of their massive success, but--according to Harmon-t-he air was thick with conflict. "We sat in that room for hours," Harmon told Tablet recently. "Tamika told us that the problem was that there were five white women in the room and only three women of color, and that she didn't trust white women. Especially white women from the South. At that point, I kind of tuned out because I was so used to hearing this type of talk from Tamika. But then I noticed the energy in the room changed. I suddenly realized that Tamika and Carmen were facing Vanessa, who was sitting on a couch, and berating her--but it wasn't about her being white. It was about her being Jewish. 'Your people this, your people that.' I was raised in the South and the language that was used is language that I’m very used to hearing in rural South Carolina. Just instead of against black people, against Jewish people. They even said to her 'your people hold all the wealth.' You could hear a pin drop. It was awful."

Reached by Tablet, Wruble declined to comment on the incident.

That's a "Yes."

This is what happens when you tell a politically-motivated lie like "Black people can't be racist." You take away even mild social disapproval of hardcore racism (and antisemitism), and you get Tamika over hear ranting about White Devils and Jews.

And everyone else afraid to say boo to her about it.

Then the argument talks about the infighting within the group -- and bringing in lawyers from the Clinton-connected firm Skadden Arps to kick out an original founder.

Then they continued getting tighter with Louis Farrakhan.

On March 11, 2018, the Women’s March had their biweekly phone call with national organizers. The public controversy had started to explode over Mallory's attendance at the Saviours' Day event, during which, in the course of a three-hour speech, Farrakhan blamed Jews for "degenerate behavior in Hollywood, turning men into women and women into men." Angie Beem, president of the Washington state chapter, remembered that phone call.

"Many of us were upset," Beem told Tablet. "She is the face of a women’s march, and our mission and values are equality and inclusion. To openly praise someone like this went against everything we were supposed to stand by." Beem described a sense of awkwardness as Mallory went on to defend Farrakhan to over 40 women on the call. And she wasn’t alone, Beem said; Perez and Bland jumped in to defend him as well. "They said to us: 'You know, he has done some great things for people of color.' They didn't denounce anything he said, they only did that recently... "

And they got closer to the Nation of Islam still:

It was around this time that Morganfield says she first heard that Nation of Islam members were acting as security detail and drivers for the co-chairs. "Bob called me secretly and said, 'Mercy, they have been in bed with the Nation of Islam since day one: They do all of our security,'" Morganfield told Tablet.

Two other sources, with direct knowledge of the time, also claimed that security and the drivers for the co-chairs were members of the Nation of Islam. And this was certainly the case in the women’s previous organization. A May 2015 photograph on Sarsour’s Facebook page shows a group of men wearing suits and bow ties in the signature Nation of Islam style. Her caption above the photo reads: "FOI Brothers, security for the movement," using the acronym for Fruit of Islam.

Disgusted not only with the co-chairs' connection to Farrakhan but the way they were all handling what she saw as the legitimate public outrage over it, Morganfield, too, asked privately for their resignations.

"I talked to everyone, and I said it to every last one of them: Tamika [Mallory] needs to resign--not just because of her Farrakhan connection, but because of how she handled it afterwards. I said Linda [Sarsour] also needs to step down. Her controversy and the things she keeps saying and doing are detrimental to the movement." When Tablet asked Morganfield whether she believes the co-chairs are anti-Semitic, she offered a terse answer: "There are no Jewish women on the board. 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."

The article goes on to question what this group is doing with the large amount of money it's raising.

Oh, and Tamika Mallory?

She cut her teeth on black radicalism and antisemitism at an early age:

Mallory was born in the Bronx to activist parents, Stanley and Voncile Mallory, who she described to the Amsterdam News as founding members of Al Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN).
