The Daily Beast has reported that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has decided not to partner with the Women’s March this year.
SPLC considers Nation of Islam, which is led by Louis Farrakhan, a hate group. Women’s March leaders Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour are some of Farrakhan’s biggest supporters.
Nation of Islam is a hate group. Farrakhan has no problem vomiting his anti-Semitism everywhere he goes.
Unlike NOW and local chapters of the Women’s March, SPLC has not made a big announcement. They have taken this action quietly:
Jen Fuson, a spokeswoman for the SPLC, said “other projects were a priority,” but added they would continue to be involved in marches at the local level in areas where they have offices.
The third annual march, to be held on January 19, comes amid criticism of the March leadership’s past affiliation with and failure to fully denounce Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, as well as other allegations of anti-semitism from its former organizers. The SPLC has designated the Nation of Islam as a hate group. Asked whether the Farrakhan connection played a part in the decision not to partner with them, Fuson reiterated that the group had other priorities.
The same Daily Beast article noted that EMILY’s List, the group that wants to elect pro-abortion Democratic women, is no longer part of the list of Women’s March partners.
I guess better late than never? I mean, the leaders have never kept it a secret they worship Farrakhan or hidden their anti-Semitic views. Look at what the SPLC said a few years ago about the Women’s March:
“As an official partner of the march, the Southern Poverty Law Center stands in solidarity with its organizers’ vision — that ‘women’s rights are human rights’ — and with the march’s mission to bring together communities ‘insulted, demonized and threatened by the rhetoric of the past election cycle,’ the SPLC said in January of 2017, calling itself “dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Through our core issues, we work to protect the rights of the working poor, LGBT, and undocumented immigrant women whom the Women’s March on Washington seeks to unite.”
NOW stopped giving money to the Women’s March. Chicago and New Orleans cancelled their marches. The Washington state chapter closed. Alyssa Milano, Debra Messing, and Rosanna Arquette won’t support them anymore.
