It’s not just the national Women’s March that’s coming apart because of its leaders’ toleration of anti-Semitism: Even local groups, with no formal connection to the controversial figures, are in trouble.NBC reports that marches in New Orleans and other cities face cancellation because of the controversy.
Meanwhile, a whole new national network, March On, has formed under Vanessa Wruble, who left the original group in 2017 after some leaders allegedly targeted her for being Jewish. Teresa Shook, one of the group’s founders, also demands a change.
In Sunday’s Post, Melanie Notkin laid out all the reasons to boycott any march linked to Tamika Mallory’s team, echoing Karol Markowicz’s call for non-haters to stay home.Mallory & Co. still can’t manage to forthrightly condemn Louis Farrakhan, despite his notorious hatred of Jews and gays.
If they believe in the cause, Mallory and the rest of the national team should step aside for women who don’t carry hateful baggage. Digging in only deepens the suspicion that they’re not out to serve the movement, but to exploit it.
