Once parading down the streets of the nation’s capital, adorned in pink pussy hats and other gender-specific costumes, spewing hatred against a newly elected president, the self-described sisterhood of feminists behind the Women’s March is rapidly losing momentum as anti-Semitism, anti-LBGTQIA sentiment, and hateful, racist rhetoric behind the scenes have come to light.
Glorified by incessant left-wing media coverage – including a spot on the cover of Time – and gushing platitudes by pols and pundits, the Women’s March rose to iconic status within months of the original idea being posted by Teresa Shook in December of 2016 on the Facebook page, Pantsuit Nation.
…the Women’s March is tucked firmly under the bed sheets with the Nation of Islam.
Shook, and the several other founders, were ousted from leadership less than a month after the 2017 Inaugural march and covertly replaced by Mari Lynn Foulger – whose nom de guerre is Bob Bland – Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and Carmen Perez.
But Shook is now back, shaking the bushes and flushing out the embedded hatred of four women at the top, their fishy financials, and the group’s ties to Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. It’s a catfight of epic proportions, a she said-she said that has tongues wagging and feminists of every creed and color arming for battle.
On her Facebook page, Shook doubled down on the water-cooler scuttlebutt after a scathing article on the origins of the march appeared in Tablet – an exposé of sorts where she and fellow rebel Mercy Morganfield offered quotable intel. As Shook lamented, “I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not.”
This behavior has gone on for two years, and now you are squawking? C’mon ladies, “birds of a feather …”
Welcoming of Hate
Shook and several feminists, emboldened by despair over the Trump victory, gathered together in Chelsea Market, a swanky Manhattan food court, and plotted their brand of high-profile protests. And they were successful in rallying millions to join in on their plans to march. It was a spectacle. But Shook and her cohorts also knew from the very beginning that the organization was devolving into an anti-Semitic group when Mallory and Perez allegedly declared that Jews were collectively responsible for exploiting black and brown people and were proven to have been behind the American slave trade.
Hmm. Now where have we heard fiery rhetoric before? Yes, right out of the pages of Louis Farrakhan’s book of lies, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, that has inexplicably become the tome of reference for many fringe black activists.
As Shook and many original members of the organization found themselves summarily cast to the curbside, deep hatred and anti-woman views were rapidly taking root from within, seeded by the relationship of Sarsour, Mallory, and Farrakhan.
Make no mistake, the Women’s March is tucked firmly under the bed sheets with the Nation of Islam. Morganfield recalls a phone conversation allegedly received from Bland who secretly spilled, “Mercy, they have been in bed with the Nation of Islam since day one: They do all of our security.”
The official statement from the organization, not surprisingly, denies the ties, but Sarsour tends to issue effusive statements on Facebook that speak a different truth. Once lamenting the harassing behavior she was subjected to at Penn Station, Sarsour wrote, “thank you to the brothers who keep me safe so I can continue to do what I do.” One user advised her to surround herself with Fruit of Islam, and Sarsour replied, “I usually am brother.”
Yet Mallory rises to the top, as she unapologetically attended Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day – where Farrakhan babbled for over three hours against Jews for being “the mother and father of apartheid,” and that Jews have chemically induced homosexuality in black men. The co-chair of the Women’s movement holding tea with a hateful, openly anti-Semitic, homophobic, and misogynistic Nation of Islam messianic preacher Louis Farrakhan – how is this real?
Outside the Fishbowl
Linda Sarsour publicly, unashamedly, supports the violence from Hamas in Gaza and advocates for Farrakhan and his desire to destroy Israel. Somehow, legacy media still refers to her as “a Brooklyn homegirl in a Hijab.”
But the real battle continues within the feminist camps. The Shook Army demanding the resignations of Brand, Sarsour, Mallory, and Perez for racist rhetoric and relationships, versus the Sarsour encampment coyly inserting the female offensive descriptors, “It just happens often with women, unfortunate gossip and rumors…” Lordy, do they have an unraveling in the sewing circle.
Women across America involved in the original movement have taken sides, and numerous chapters have broken off from the Women’s March organization – most notably Los Angeles, Houston, Washington, D.C., Alabama, Rhode Island, Georgia, and Illinois.
As Shook posted on Facebook, she is adamant in putting the organization under a spotlight of reality:
“From intentionally erasing organizers and founders from leadership, creating opaque entities to filter funding for personal profit, alleged fraud and tax law violations, and clear antisemitism, the 4 current leaders of Women’s March (Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez) and their associate Michael Skolnik have a lot more explaining to do.”
The development of the Women’s March is unrecognizable to founder Shook, just 24-months after the post-presidential inaugural. The transformation into a vehicle that vaulted a small clique of radical, racist feminists who brazenly profess admiration for a man who advocates for the exact and extreme opposite of what they say they stand for – equality.
Pushing tenants of Sharia Law, dreaming of genocide for Jews, and keeping women barefoot and pregnant slaves to their masters – is this American feminism? It certainly seems to have devolved since the days of Gloria Steinem.
So, I’ll ask the question to my feminist, liberal, alt-left friends, are you “woke” yet?
