Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory are back (and Republicans are seizing)

It appears that former co-chairs of the Women’s March Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory have regained the confidence of at least some at the DNC. The Daily Beast reports both were part of Democratic events this week. And of course Republicans are seizing:

Tamika Mallory, the former co-president of the Women’s March, spoke briefly during Monday’s meeting of the Black Caucus about the importance of securing justice for Breonna Taylor, an EMT who was shot by police as they executed a no-knock warrant at her home in May…

On Tuesday, fellow former Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour, a supporter of Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders with a history of controversial statements about Israel, appeared on the livestream for the DNC’s Muslims and Allies Assembly.

Her appearance was immediately seized upon by Republicans and the Trump campaign, which circulated a clip where she said the Democratic Party “is absolutely our party.”

A reporter for Jewish Insider highlighted the Daily Beast story on Twitter:

That apparently led to a quick response from the Biden campaign about anti-Semitism and Biden’s strong support for Israel. CNN’s Jake Tapper has the statement:

The basic excuse being offered here is that Biden’s campaign had no control over this. Uh-huh. Sure.

I’m sure this kind of dismissal, i.e. it’s not our fault these anti-Semites are showing up at our meetings, will work just as well if someone connected to Louis Farrakhan shows up at the RNC. We all know the media is scrupulously fair about such things.

In case you’ve forgotten the history on this, the Women’s March cut ties with Mallory, Sarsour and co-chair Bob Bland last year after their connections to Louis Farrakhan were exposed.

In any case, here’s Sarsour saying the Democratic party “is our party in this moment.”

I get what she is trying to say here but…she is not wrong. Democrats really are the party of anti-Semites.
