Farrakhan Fangirl & Israel Hater Tamika Mallory Axed From Australian Good Life Summit

Some good news from the land down under, with Woman’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory being booted off the speaker’s list of a major social policy conference, due to some recent disgraceful comments against the Jewish state.

Tamika Mallory — a co-organizer of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, DC, and outspoken supporter of antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan — has been booted out of a major social policy conference in Australia, following a vehemently anti-Israel speech she delivered last Friday.

Mallory had been scheduled to speak at the 2018 Good Life Summit which begins in Melbourne on June 13. The event brings together high-profile politicians and advocates to discuss poverty, education, healthcare access, domestic violence and other social policy questions. Among this year’s speakers are Daniel Andrews, prime minister of the Australian state of Victoria, Matthew Guy, leader of the opposition Liberal Party, and Nayuka Gorrie, a prominent Aboriginal rights activist.

On Monday, summit organizers told The Australian newspaper that the invitation to Mallory had been withdrawn out of concern that her latest incendiary attack on Israel would “overshadow” the event.

Yup, this tweet did not age well!

Here are the offensive comments she made to the far-left Center for Constitutional Rights via a video link on Friday, in which she described the creation of Israel 70 years ago as a “human rights crime”:

My soul would not rest, standing by and doing nothing about it, to know that the US government – my taxpayer’s money, $10 million a day – is going to a government, a military, that takes the lives of people who were there first. There are a lot of people who will say, “Do you believe that Israel has the right to exist?” I believe we all have a right to exist, I want to see all of us live in a free society, where we are all able to raise our families and to be fruitful and have occupations. This is not about stopping one side. This is about ensuring that the native people are able to enjoy their land. They shouldn’t ask anybody for their land! This is their land! When you go to someone’s home and you need a place to stay, you ask “Can I come into your home and can I stay here, and can we peacefully coexist?” You don’t walk into someone else’s home, needing a place. It’s clear you needed a place to go – cool, we got that! I hear that! But you don’t show up to somebody’s home, needing a place to stay, and decide that you’re going to throw them out and hurt the people who are on that land. And to kill, steal, and do whatever it is you’re gonna do to take that land! That to me is unfair. It’s a human rights crime.

Why the VCOSS Summit organizers thought it a good idea to invite Mallory in the first place is beyond me, given her support of antisemite Louis Farrakhan and other problematic conduct that seems to point towards her own antisemitism (including praising Hamas’ use of human shields). Of course she would deny it she has an antisemitic bone in her body.

Well, Tamika, automatically accepting the palestinian narrative at every turn does not pass the smell test – calling it the palestinian’s land while ignoring the Jewish people’s indigenous status, mischaracterizing the establishment of the state of Israel as you have done, and ignoring relevant historical truths, like the palestinian rejection of the Partition plan, and the palestinian and Arab state attempts to annihilate us.

In any event, kudos to the VCOSS organizers for giving Mallory the boot, but perhaps next time do some due diligence before sending out the invitations.
