The Women’s March had a huge blow over the weekend when the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) quietly withdrew its support.

Sometime between then and today, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and NAACP no longer appear on the sponsor list. The NAACP’s Youth & College division is still on the partner list.

From Haaertz:

A leader of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, which defines itself as “the voice of Jewish Democrats and socially-progressive, pro-Israel values” said Tuesday in a statement she welcomed the move, but that her group continued to encourage participation in marches that were not directly affiliated with the embattled Women’s March.

“JDCA supports the objectives of the Women’s March and stands with sister marches across the country this weekend,” said Halie Soifer, JDCA executive director “At the same time, we welcome the DNC, SPLC, Emily’s List, and other organizations’ decision to not sponsor and participate in the Women’s March and take a principled stand against anti-Semitism.”

They didn’t have a choice after Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory failed miserably on The View on Monday when confronted over her love and admiration for the anti-Semitic racist Louis Farrakhan.

Mallory appeared on The View along with co-leader Bob Bland. Meghan McCain asked both of them if they would condemn the anti-Semitic statements by Louis Farrakhan.

Bland had no problem doing this. Mallory could not:

“What I will say to you is that I don’t agree with many of Minister Farrakhan’s statements,” Mallory said.

“Do you condemn them?” McCain asked.

“I don’t agree with these statements,” Mallory repeated.

“You won’t condemn it,” McCain noted.

“To be clear, it is not my language, it is not the way that I speak,” Mallory insisted.

Planned Parenthood remains a sponsor to the shock of no one. EMILY’s List dropped the Women’s March along with NOW. Chicago and New Orleans will not host a march. The Washington state chapter closed.
