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. She said nothing. But it’s not just her association with Farrakhan. Tamika Mallory is a confirmed Jew-hater. Last summer she spewed “Palestinian” propaganda falsehoods about “stolen land,” telling Jews: “It’s clear you (sic) needed a place to go — cool, we got that, I hear that. 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.”
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. The political and academic left is far too hospitable to Jew-haters.
“In National TV Appearance, Women’s March Leaders Again Refuse to Condemn Farrakhan,” by Benjamin Kerstein, Algemeiner, January 14, 2019:
Two Women’s March leaders repeatedly refused to condemn Nation of Islam (NOI) leader and prominent antisemite Louis Farrakhan during an appearance on ABC‘s talk show “The View” on Monday.
Queried about her presence at a NOI Savior’s Day event last yearwhere she posed for a picture with Farrakhan, that she later posted on social media with a caption calling Farrakhan the “GOAT” or “Greatest Of All Time,” Tamika Mallory sought to relativize the issue, saying, “I think it’s important to put my attendance, my presence at Savior’s Day, which is the highest holy day for the Nation of Islam, in proper context.”
“You know, as a leader, as a black leader, in a country that is still dealing with some very serious unresolved issues as it relates to the black experience in this country, I go into a lot of difficult spaces,” she continued.
“I wrote a piece immediately following the beginning of this controversy, talking about, wherever my people are, that’s where I must also be,” she said. “So I also go into prisons, where there are people who have been convicted of heinous acts. And I am trying to help people to move from wherever they are today, and build that unity to bring them to a place where we live in a more fair and equitable society. And I think that that work is not easy for everyone to understand, but it’s certainly work that I’m committed to and everywhere I go is difficult.”
She then appeared to accuse other Women’s March leaders of racism, saying, “The Women’s March was very difficult. I met with a lot of women who did not even understand why race was important to be a part of the conversation as it relates to women’s rights issues, and there was a lot of offensive rhetoric that I heard.”
“Just because you go into a space with someone does not mean that you agree with everything that they say,” she added.
“I didn’t call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric,” she said of Farrakhan, “I called him the greatest of all time because of what he’s done in black communities.”
This was followed by heavy applause from the audience….
