What’s going on with the Women’s March? The movement, which gained popularity after the election of President Donald Trump, seems to be slowly dying by a series of self-inflicted wounds. The organization has been rocked by allegations of anti-Semitism among its leaders and has been widely criticized for their tendency to exclude women who do not subscribe to all of the tenets of progressive ideology.
In light of this, you would think they would refrain from taking actions that would hasten their downfall, but as with many on the far left, they have not learned their lesson. Recently, the Women’s March decided to cancel an event in Eureka, California because — wait for it — the majority of the participants were white.
Women’s March Cancelled
In a recent press release, the organizers of the Women’s March announced that they would not be holding their annual event this year. “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” they wrote. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.”
The organization has indicated that they are considering holding an event to celebrate International Women’s Day in March. Perhaps they are hoping they can reach their minority quota by then?
It appears that the leaders of the Women’s March were not thinking clearly when they decided to hold their event in Eureka. In reaction to the decision, local resident Amy Sawyer Long told the Washington Times that the city is made up mostly of white people. “I understand wanting a diverse group,” she said. “However, we live in a predominantly white area.” She added: “No matter the race people still want their voices heard.”
Long is right. According to Census Bureau data, Humboldt County, where Eureka is located is 74% non-Hispanic white. Of course, this brings up two questions — why would they hold the event there in the first place if they know it’s a mostly white community? Furthermore, do they truly believe that ostracizing whites is beneficial to their cause?
Will They Ever Learn?
Like most other far leftist groups, the Women’s March has shown itself to be guilty of the same type of discrimination and intolerance of which they accuse conservatives, and it’s important to note that their hypocrisy is likely the most significant contributor to the organization’s downfall.
Recently, the Washington State chapter of the Women’s March dissolved in protest of the organization’s ties to anti-Semitism. The group also had to cancel an event in Chicago due to logistical issues and a lack of volunteers. It turns out that elevating obvious anti-Semites to positions of leadership while excluding certain types of women is not exactly the best way to attract more people to your cause.
They can’t preach about tolerance while embracing open anti-Semites.
These recent developments only highlight the problem with the far left. It is nearly impossible to comply with all of the rules inherent in their political dogma. Like the Pharisees in ancient Israel during the time of Jesus, they are placing expectations on their adherents that they cannot hope to achieve.
They can’t preach about tolerance while embracing open anti-Semites. They cannot hurl accusations of racism at conservatives when they blatantly judge whites by the color of their skin. They can’t rescue victims when they’re too busy playing different types of victims against each other. It is a philosophy that might sound attractive, but inevitably, it will always fail.
