Anti-Trump Protests Tag

Ever since Tablet magazine published its investigation into the racism and anti-Semitism views of the Women's March leaders the organization has bled support and people. First the Washington state chapter closed. The New York Times finally acknowledged that leaders Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory harbor hatred toward Jews. Then the Chicago chapter announced it will not have a march in January. Another blow came today as The National Organization for Women (NOW) announced it will no longer be a donor to the Women's March until it resolves the questions surrounding its leadership.

Washington state's Women's March chapter has decided to close due to leaders at the national level expressing anti-Semitic views and associating with anti-Semites like Louis Farrakhan. From The Spokesman-Review:
Angie Beem, a Spokane Valley resident who served as board president of Women’s March Washington, announced the dissolution of the state group on Facebook on Thursday, citing the national organization’s ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Beem, who helped organize the march in Spokane in 2017 and made an unsuccessful bid for Spokane Valley City Council that fall, said in an interview Friday the decision to disband wasn’t easy.

An investigation by Tablet magazine on the Women's March has exposed the anti-Semitic beliefs and ties to Nation of Islam that many of us on the right have known about. But now that it's out in the open (again), will anyone pay attention and dump these leaders so many of them prop up? The racist beliefs came out from the very beginning, but many members decided to hide them:

As someone who attended and wrote about Tea Party protests in 2009 and 2010, it has been surreal to watch folks at CNN and MSNBC twist themselves into knots to defend the recent actions of the left. I clearly remember Democrats and their media allies using words like "dangerous" and "mob" to describe people who obtained protest permits and cleaned up their own trash. Everything is different now.

As noted by Mike, newspapers are responding to President Trump's accusation that they are coordinating against him by taking their anti-Trump coordination efforts public.
“We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration’s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date,” The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers.
While they are focused on working against the president for his "assault" on the press, antifa fascists in Charlottesville actually assaulted the press and a police officer. . . not that you'd know it from the lack of media coverage.
