Big day for left-endorsed anti-semitism. This was circulating on Twitter last night:

Today brought Women’s March co-founders Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland to “The View.” It was just last month that the Tablet published an expose accusing Mallory and another leader of the march of, among other things, asserting at an organizational meeting in November 2016 “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.” Those are claims promoted by the Nation of Islam, and Mallory’s a big admirer of NOI leader Louis Farrakhan. She told the Tablet that nothing of the sort was said at that early meeting. But she’s also prone to tweeting things like this in Farrakhan’s defense:
If your leader does not have the same enemies as Jesus, they may not be THE leader! Study the Bible and u will find the similarities. Ostracizing, ridicule and rejection is a painful part of the process…but faith is the substance of things!

By “same enemies as Jesus,” I don’t think she means the Romans. Sunny Hostin prodded Mallory a bit about the accusations of anti-semitism in today’s “View” appearance but it was Meghan McCain who came to play, grilling Mallory on why she’s okay to share a stage with Farrakhan when pro-life women weren’t welcome to co-sponsor the Women’s March. Watch their exchange below. All McCain wants from Mallory is a clear sign that she doesn’t share Farrakhan’s views on Jews. Mallory won’t give it to her, resorting to gassy deflections about how she wouldn’t choose the same “language” as him. Usually with Democratic Farrakhan apologists, the sin isn’t that they necessarily share his views so much as that they’re willing to overlook them in the name of black empowerment. With Mallory, you’re left to wonder.
The money line, though, which naturally draws applause from the show’s moronic studio audience, is Mallory trying to shut down McCain with “I should never be judged through the lens of a man.” McCain’s not judging her through the lens of a man, whatever the hell that means; she’s judging her based on her own choices, up to and very much including her decision not to denounce him on today’s show when invited to do so. But a tip of the cap to Mallory on a phenomenal use of woke faux-sensitivity about sexism to deflect from her own freely chosen apologetics for anti-semitism. If you’re going to accuse Tamika Mallory of promoting a Jew-hater, you’d best be sure that Jew-hater’s a woman.
To their credit, several local chapters of the Women’s March have distanced themselves from the national group over garbage like this. Planned Parenthood, MoveOn, NOW, and the American Federation of Teachers, among others, have not.
