Some liberals are starting to turn on the left-wing Women’s March because its leaders have been outed as notorious Jew haters.
The latest to turn against the women’s march is the liberal German think tank FES which cancelled an award it was going to give to the Women’s March.
The Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES), a German think tank for the country’s social democratic party, was set to award the Women’s March its Human Rights Award. But not any more.
According to Daily Wire:
Members from one of FES’s working groups, Critique of Anti-Semitism and Jewish Studies, penned a public letter denouncing the Women’s March’s anti-Semitism and support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.
“We believe that the Women’s March USA does not meet the criteria of this award, as its organizers have repeatedly attracted attention through anti-Semitic statements, the trivialization of antisemitism and the exclusion of Zionists and Jews since Women’s March USA’s establishment in 2017. Women’s March USA does not constitute an inclusive alliance,” the members wrote.
The scholars and alumni of FES called on the organization “(1) to distance themselves from the Women’s March USA and to revoke the award immediately, (2) to adopt the antisemitism definition of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, (3) to check future projects, award recipients and any activities concerning antisemitism – with the help of experts in this field [and] (4) to oppose any form of antisemitism both within the FES and externally.”
This is not the first time the Women’s March has been attacked by liberals.
Recently two left-wing, Hollywood actresses turned activists turned against the Women’s March.
Actresses Debra Messing and Alyssa Milano have both announced that they will no longer work with the Women’s March.
It turns out that not only is notorious terror-apologist and Muslim activist Linda Sarsour a chief leader of the Women’s March,” but the group’s founder, Tamika Mallory, has been found to be an ardent supporter of virulent anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
… far from simply refusing to denounce [Farrakhan’s] hate, Mallory seems to be fully on board with Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism. In June she was heard saying that the founding of Israel was a “human rights crime,” and she has also been seen as an appreciative member of the audience at speeches given by the leader of the Nation of Islam.
For his part, Farrakhan has spent decades calling Jews his enemy and calling for their elimination. And as far back as 1984 he even called Adolph Hitler a “very great man.”
His anti-Semitism is not just a decades-old statement, either. Last month Farrakhan called Jews “termites” by joking that he is not anti-Semitic, but is instead “anti-termite.”
Worse, in early November he was seen leading chants of “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” during a visit to Iran.
Alyssa Milano says she will not speak at the next Women's March as long as Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory remain a part of the leadership and refuse to condemn Louis Farrakhan's anti-semitism. https://t.co/GvrrZ5fyPy

Let’s hope this starts growing and everyone on the left finally join together to put an end to this anti-Semitic Women’s March.
