Investigation alleges that anti-Semitism among Women’s March organizers started at first meeting

Try it you will like it

We don’t just throw around the term “must-read,” but an investigation into the Women’s March published in Tablet magazine is making waves on social media Monday night, as a woman who was there at the very first meeting of the organization recalls anti-Semitic statements by Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez.

According to the authors, Perez and Mallory, who were recommended by Michael Skolnik in an early attempt to include women of color in the group, argued at the first meeting that “Jewish people bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people — and even, according to a close secondhand source, claimed that Jews were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade.”

Tablet’s investigation is very long and very thorough, and much too detailed to even touch in this post — let’s just say the authors even have tax forms as backup. And guess what? The anti-NRA Parkland kids and their March for Our Lives even get a cameo appearance.

They certainly don’t speak for all women, and specifically excluded pro-life women from their inaugural march.
