Twitter executives hosted Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory at their headquarters, despite the fact the woman’s publicly announced support for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
This is the same Twitter that touts its blockage of offensive content — offensive content that typically turns out to be conservative in nature.
But the social media giant doesn’t have a problem with Mallory and her ties to the very racist, very openly anti-Semite Farrakhan?

Twitter hosted Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory at its headquarters, despite controversy surrounding Mallory’s support for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite.
Mallory posted a pair of pictures from Twitter headquarters on social media Thursday afternoon.
One picture showed Mallory standing in front of a Black Lives Matter decorated wall at the company’s headquarters. The other showed Mallory and rapper Mysonne posing for a picture with what appeared to be several dozen Twitter employees.

Mallory attended a Nation of Islam convention in February, when Farrakhan railed against Jews and white people. Farrakhan took time out of his speech to praise Mallory, and she was seen on camera applauding at one point during his speech. The Women’s March leader also praised Farrakhan on social media as the “greatest of all time.”
After a backlash from the Anti-Defamation League and other Jewish organizations, Mallory defended Farrakhan by implying that religious leaders are supposed to consider Jews their enemies. “If your leader does not have the same enemies as Jesus, they may not be THE leader!” she wrote on Twitter.
Farrakhan is a notorious anti-Semite who has praised Hitler, said white people “deserve to die” and repeatedly claimed Jews are “satanic.” The Nation of Islam’s doctrine teaches that white people are inherently inferior and were created in an experiment by a black scientist.
Mallory re-affirmed her support for Farrakhan in an op-ed for NewsOne, a black news website. In the op-ed, Mallory said her relationship with the Nation of Islam goes back 30 years. (RELATED: Planned Parenthood Chapter Aborts Relationship With Women’s March Co-Chair)
Twitter did not immediately return a request for comment regarding Mallory’s visit to company headquarters.
Mallory isn’t the only Women’s March leader with ties to Farrakhan. The group’s co-president, Carmen Perez, defended him in a January interview with Refinery29.
“In regards to Minister Farrakhan, I think that is a distraction,” Perez said at the time. “People need to understand the significant contributions that these individuals have made to Black and Brown people.”
