Farrakhan fans in leadership are tearing apart the movement they helped build as the truth comes out.
Very few publications have consistently brought to light the anti-Semitism and racism showcased by the leaders of the Women’s March. Legal Insurrection is one of them.
But when Tablet magazine published an investigation into the behaviors by the leaders, especially Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, other publications finally spoke up about it.
The New York Times did this on Sunday, but instead of stating that the leaders have anti-Semitic views, the left-wing Bible framed it as accusations.
Thing is, The New York Times says its accusations, but the article in the paper provides point blank evidence that Sarsour and Mallory are anti-Semitic.
The paper interviewed Vanessa Wruble about an incident with Mallory, which was also touched on in the Tablet article.
One of the original members, Evie Harmon, told Tablet (emphasis mine):
At the end of January, according to multiple sources, there was an official debriefing at Mallory’s apartment. In attendance were Mallory, Evvie Harmon, Breanne Butler, Vanessa Wruble, Cassady Fendlay, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. They should have been basking in the afterglow of their massive success, but—according to Harmon—the 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 [Page, another leader] 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.”
Wruble touched on that incident with The New York Times:
At that first meeting, Ms. Wruble said, they seemed to want to educate her about a dark side of Jewish history, and told her that Jewish people played a large role in the slave trade and the prison industry.
“I was taken aback,” said Ms. Wruble in her first extensive interview about her experience organizing the Women’s March. “I thought, ‘Maybe there are things I don’t know about my own people.’”
She said she went home that night and searched Google to read about the Jewish role in the slave trade. Up popped a review of “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and the Jews,” a 1991 book by Mr. Farrakhan, which asserts that Jews were especially culpable. Henry Louis Gates Jr., a Harvard professor, has called the book the “bible of the new anti-Semitism.”
ACCUSATIONS?! What these women told Wruble upset her SO MUCH that she went home to see if her heritage is indeed evil and awful. I mean, how can you call that accusations?!
Oh wait. There’s more.
It all fell apart once Sarsour jumped on board. That’s when Wruble “felt cast aside.”
Wruble didn’t say which one, but one leader told her that the group “really couldn’t center Jewish women in this or we might turn off Black Lives Matter.” That group stands with the Palestinians against Israel.
To make matters worse, Wruble found out that Nation of Islam, the hate group led by disgusting anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, were the security guards:
At one point, Ms. Wruble said she asked about security for the march and was told by the leaders that the Nation of Islam would be providing it.
“I said, ‘You are going to open up the march to intense criticism,’” Ms. Wruble said, warning that it would be a red flag for Jews. She said they dismissed her concerns in a heated email exchange and accused her of unfairly maligning the Nation of Islam.
Wruble noticed a group missing from the Unity Principles:
“We must create a society in which all women — including Black women, Indigenous women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian, queer and trans women — are free,” it read.
JEWISH women??? Not to mention the fact that white women received no mention.
Thanks for finally writing about anti-Semitics in the Women’s March, the New York Times, but these are NOT accusations. It’s REALITY.DONATE
