Demand Justice, the progressive activist group headed by former Hillary Clinton campaign aide Brian Fallon, is renewing its calls for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire. They desperately want Joe Biden to be able to appoint a younger justice, presumably someone much further to the left.

This past Sunday, March 14, 2021, marked the 2021 Grammys award ceremony. Usually, I pay exactly zero attention to celebrity awards shows, but this year's event deserves a mention. After a year marked by ever-increasing anti-Semitic incidents and the continued normalization of leftist Jew-hate, the Recording Academy decided that what the show really needed was a special performance by disgraced former Women's March leader, Louis Farrakhan-supporter, and (as far as I can tell) non-musician Tamika Mallory.

On Monday, the Women's March voted off its board Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Bob Bland due to the anti-Semitism controversies surrounding them. The organization announced 16 new members to the board. I noted in my Monday blog that Zahra Billoo could cause problems for them due to her past statements on Israel, the FBI, and the IDF. She once called herself "a proud anti-Zionist." I was correct. Billoo tweeted early this morning the Women's March booted her off its board.

According to The Washington Post, the Women's Match has decided to let loose three members due to their anti-Semitism, which has brought down the movement. Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, and Linda Sarsour have a long history of anti-Semitism and associating themselves with anti-Semitics. But one new board member may cause the same headaches for The Women's March.

The United Center in Chicago, IL, home to the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks, hosted the Nation of Islam's Savior's Day over the weekend. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan used the keynote address to do what he does best: bash Jews and white people. Legal Insurrection has for years documented the ties between the anti-Semite and Women's March. Farrakhan blamed the "wicked Jews" on that coverage.

Embroiled in controversy and losing big donors and backers, the Women's March has attempted to keep its head above water with this year's march. However, although Women's March organizers anticipated hundreds of thousands to show up for their third annual march in DC, this year's march garnered only "thousands," according to reports.

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.”

Institutional anti-Semitism in the Women's March, the most celebrated political movement of Trump era so far, has been in the news lately, with many opinion-makers calling for the boycott of the upcoming January 19 nationwide protest. Many of us knew that the national co-chairs were fans of Louis Farrakhan; many noted the curious absence of condemnation of anti-Semitism in the intersectional organization's Unity Principles.

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.
