The Women’s March is losing staffers and supporters in reaction to an ongoing anti-Semitism controversy that has seen the group’s co-founders refuse to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
At the Nation of Islam’s 2018 Saviours’ Day Address, the organization’s leader Louis Farrakhan took the stage to attack “that Satanic Jew.” Farrakhan—who once praised Hitler as a “very great man” and said God put Jews in the ovens—called Jews “the mother and father of apartheid,” and declared that “when you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door.”
Sitting in the crowd, clapping along with other attendees, was the co-founder of the Women’s March Tamika Mallory.
Mallory was shredded for her support for Farrakhan. After over a week of radio silence, the March finally put out a statement that can best be described as tepid, saying it was “not aligned” with Farrakhan’s views but neglecting to condemn the man himself.
