Spokane’s Chapter of Women’s March Disbands Over Charges of Anti-Semitism

Members of the Woman’s March in Spokane, Washington, have decided to throw in the towel and disband after the national chapter became engulfed in charges of Jew hatred and anti-Semitism.

Let’s hope this is a harbinger of a national dissolution of the extremist, left-wing group.

The problem comes from the top with the national umbrella organization descending into controversy.

Angie Beem, a Spokane Valley resident who served as board president of Women’s March Washington, announced the dissolution of the state group on Facebook on Thursday, citing the national organization’s ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Beem, who helped organize the march in Spokane in 2017 and made an unsuccessful bid for Spokane Valley City Council that fall, said in an interview Friday the decision to disband wasn’t easy.

“It’s heartbreaking. Whenever you create something that literally changed your life, it’s really hard to walk away from it,” Beem said.

The report also says that the Washington state organization itself is also about to disband over the mess visited upon them by the national group.

The report adds:

Beem said state organizers were not only uncomfortable with the national leaders’ ties to Farrakhan, whose group, the Nation of Islam, has been labeled as an anti-Semitic hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. They’re also concerned about the national organizers’ finances and what Beem called a “fame-hungry” attitude.

If you are unfamiliar with the charges against the national group:

The four leaders of the national Women’s March group – Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour – have received calls to resign, even as they released statements condemning anti-Semitism. One of the calls for resignation came from Teresa Shook, a retired lawyer whose Facebook post following the 2016 presidential election is widely credited as spurring the Women’s March movement nationwide.

This agitation group needs to end. Let’s hope Spokane’s disbanding starts the ball rolling.
