Chicago is not done with Jussie Smollett. Now famous for allegedly staging a faux hate crime and then receiving reprieve under incredibly questionable circumstances, Smollett was sued by the City of Chicago Thursday after he failed to reimburse the city some $130,000 for police overtime spent investigating the attack.

Virginia Governor Northam's days in office may be numbered. Under pressure from both sides of the aisle, first for endorsing murdering newborn babies and then for donning racist costumes while in med school. Endorsing infanticide was just fine. The media and Democrats continue to pretend it never happened. But Northam's racist costume was a bridge too far, apparently.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is no stranger to racial controversy and it's nice to see the Republican party finally doing something about it. The Republicans have booted King from committees after he told The New York Times, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” From Fox News:
"We will not tolerate this type of language in the Republican Party ... or in the Democratic Party as well," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told reporters. "I watched what Steve King said and we took action."

As the Women's March bleeds supporters over the support of anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, leaders Bob Bland and Tamika Mallory appeared on The View. Instead of condemning Farrakhan's hatred of Jews, Mallory doubled down:
“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,” Mallory replied. “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.”

To the shock of no one, Planned Parenthood has decided to continue supporting the Women's March despite the overwhelming evidence that leaders Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory are anti-Semitic and worship Louis Farrakhan. After all, Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood as a way to cleanse the world of undesirables. However, if you look closely at the statement, you'll find that Planned Parenthood sounds confused by trying to deflect the attention away from the Women's March and place it on President Donald Trump's administration.

We've been covering the Women's March here at LI since its inception, including its January 2017 exclusion of pro-life feminists, and have been closely following revelations of the group's rampant anti-Semitism.  From closed chapters to cancelled marches and lost sponsors, the Women's March is flailing due to its leadership's associations with and defense of vile anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. It seems that anti-Semitism is not the group's only problem: the California Women's March scheduled for next month has been cancelled because leadership fears it will be "too white."

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.

The organizers of the Women's March in Chicago have canceled the 2019 march due to the anti-Semitic views of Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory at the national level. The ties to Nation of Islam and hatred of Jews by the leaders is nothing new to us at LI, but since Tablet magazine's investigation, the fallout continues and no one can ignore the truth anymore.

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.

The Nation of Islam, led by rabid anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, is a hate group. Farrakhan constantly spits out hate towards whites and Jews. The man referred to Jews as termites and hailed Hitler as a great man. He authored the book The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews where he accused Jews of spreading the slavery trade and controlling the global economy. Farrakhan has even said he thinks the Jews masterminded 9/11. But for some reason the government has been giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to Farrakhan's hate group since 2008 in order teach religious classes to federal prisoners.

Will corporations never learn that knee-jerk reactions to online outrage are almost always factually vapid? Apparently not. Fast food chain Chipotle recently fired a manager after a viral video showed her refusing service to a group of young, black men. She also suggested the group of men did not have money to pay for their food, saying the last several times they frequented the restaurant, they didn't have money to pay. "You gotta pay because you’ve never had money when you come in here. We're not gonna make food unless you guys actually have money," she said.
