I am neither shocked or surprised by Tamika Mallory’s Jew-hatred. Evil exists in the world. What is horrific is the left’s exaltation of Mallory. She was a leader of the Women’s March after President Trump was inaugurated. Farrakhan, at a 2018 Saviour’s Day event in Chicago, said Jews were “responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior” seen in Hollywood. Mallory was standing next to him as he delivered this tirade. It is good that Mallory was dropped from this event, but the political and academic left is still far too hospitable to Jew-haters in general.
Mallory’s rhetoric is evocative of German propaganda in the run-up to the Holocaust. Goebbels pounded the victim narrative and the Jews the oppressors. Same incitement, next century.
Evil is made possible the the sanction you give it.
“Farrakhan Supporter Tamika Mallory Booted Out of Major Australian Conference After New Antisemitic Outburst,” Algemeiner, June 4, 2018:
Tamika Mallory — a co-organizer of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, DC, and outspoken supporter of antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan — has been booted out of a major social policy conference in Australia, following a vehemently anti-Israel speech she delivered last Friday.
Mallory had been scheduled to speak at the 2018 Good Life Summit which begins in Melbourne on June 13. The event brings together high-profile politicians and advocates to discuss poverty, education, healthcare access, domestic violence and other social policy questions. Among this year’s speakers are Daniel Andrews, prime minister of the Australian state of Victoria, Matthew Guy, leader of the opposition Liberal Party, and Nayuka Gorrie, a prominent Aboriginal rights activist.
On Monday, summit organizers told The Australian newspaper that the invitation to Mallory had been withdrawn out of concern that her latest incendiary attack on Israel would “overshadow” the event.
Addressing the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights, a far-left organization, via a video link on Friday, Mallory described the creation of the Jewish state 70 years ago as a “human rights crime.”
“It’s clear you (sic) needed a place to go — cool, we got that, I hear that,” Mallory said of the Jewish people in the wake of the Holocaust. “But you don’t show up to somebody’s home, needing a place to stay, and decide that you’re going to throw them out and hurt the people who are on that land.”
She continued: “And to kill, steal, and do whatever it is you’re gonna do to take that land. That to me is unfair. It’s a human rights crime.”
A spokesperson for the summit in Melbourne said organizers were perturbed “both by comments Ms. Mallory made in recent days regarding Israeli-Palestinian affairs, and the capacity for these remarks to overshadow the Good Life Summit.”
The spokesman added: “The Good Life Summit is about setting a positive vision for a fair and just Victoria. We don’t want anything to detract from that vision.”
Mallory was to be paid a speaker’s fee for her speech, according to The Australian. Summit organizers would not comment on the amount or what she would now be paid….
