The feminist movement was always driven by a far-left, anti-freedom ideology, and the left is increasingly open about its Jew-hatred. If the women’s movement cared about women, their top platform issues would include FGM, honor violence, child marriage and forced marriage. Instead their leadership supports these misogynist practices under the sharia and demonizes Jews with the same conspiracy paranoia we see frequently from Muslim leaders.
Ayn Rand said of feminism in 1978 that it was a phony movement, Marxist-Leninist in origin. And that was in 1978. Nothing is static; left authoritarianism is a slippery slope. So it is not surprising that it has become a viciously anti-Jewish movement led by pro-jihad, pro-sharia oppression.
Martin Luther King said of Israel and Zionism, “when people criticize Zionists they mean Jews, you are talking anti-semitism.” Shame on the leaders of the Women’s March.
“Women’s March Leaders Accused Of Blaming Jews For Slave Trade,” by Alyssa Fisher, Forward, December 11, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
During the very first meeting of the organization that would become the Women’s March, two of its leaders, Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory, claimed that Jews were leaders in the exploitation of black and brown people, Tablet reported Monday.
Someone who Tablet described as a “close secondhand source” said the duo claimed, falsely, that Jews were leaders of the American slave trade.
Perez and Mallory, along with Linda Sarsour, who was not present at the meeting but later joined the organization as a co-chair, have been criticized for months for their longtime support for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has a long history of anti-Semitic rhetoric.
The comments about Jews allegedly made by Perez and Mallory are also ideas that Farrakhan has promoted, including in his book “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.”
Mallory and Bob Bland, another Women’s March leader who was present at the meeting in question, denied that any such statements were ever made. “There was a particular conversation around how white women had centered themselves—and also around the dynamics of racial justice and why it was essential that racial justice be a part of the women’s rights conversation,” but it had nothing to do with Jews, Bland stated.
Multiple sources also told Tablet that Nation of Islam members were acting as security detail and drivers for the March’s co-chairs. Mercy Morganfield, president of the Women’s March’s local chapter in Washington, D.C., told Tablet that one of the other national leaders, Bob Bland, told her, “‘Mercy, they have been in bed with the Nation of Islam since day one: They do all of our security.’”
The organization denied the charge, and Bland personally denied to Tablet that she said such a thing to Morganfield.
“Women’s March has no relationship with or financial ties to the Nation of Islam,” the organization wrote to Tablet, adding, “We denounce anti-semitism, and there should be no confusion about that.”
Tablet noted that in September 2017, a Facebook commenter on Sarsour’s page urged her to be “surrounded” by the Nation of Islam’s security detail. “I usually am brother,” Sarsour replied….
