The Democratic National Committee is ending its formal support of the National “Women’s March” organization, becoming the latest of 300 groups to do so as the national organization continues to make itself the center of negative attention due to its leaders’ long-running association with anti-semitic figures.
From Daily Caller:
The DNC is the latest major liberal organization to disassociate itself with the march. Prominent liberal activist groups such as the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, the Human Rights Campaign, and the Southern Poverty Law Center have all ended their sponsorships of the organization.
Key leaders within the March’s national organization such as Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez have all expressed some level of anti-Semitism in recent years. Sarsour has spoken in approval of Sharia Law; is an avid supporter of the movement to “Boycott, Divest and Sanction” (BDS) the Jewish state of Israel; and has maintained personal and family ties to the Hamas terrorist group, which calls for the genocide of all Jewish people in their charter.
Mallory and Perez meanwhile, have been accused by former Jewish co-founder Venessa Wruble of discrimination.
A report from Tablet magazine last month recalled a meeting between Women’s March organizers, including Mallory, Perez and Wrubel, who is a white Jewish woman. According to the report, Mallory and Perez made anti-semitic statements, claiming that Jews were leaders of the American slave trade and that Jewish people “bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people.”
Wrubel has claimed that she was pushed out of the organization for being Jewish.
