WATCH: Tamika Mallory Refuses to Condemn Louis Farrakhan or His Antisemitism
Women’s March co-chairs Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland recently appeared on The View, and the issue of Mallory’s association with, and fangirling of, Jew hater Louis Farrakhan came up.
Her response is as vile as it is infuriating.
Note how Mallory justifies calling Farrakhan the GOAT, and thinks that is ok because of his work within the Black community, Jew hatred notwithstanding (imagine someone calling Hitler, for example, the GOAT, because of his work with the German poor). She also cannot even use the word “condemn” to refer to Farrakhan’s antisemitic statements, let alone the man himself.
Another important point. Meghan McCain mentions the Tablet article, which Bland says contains false statements because those interviewed did not tell the truth. But we know that Mallory herself admitted to the New York Times that Jews were discussed at the first meeting.
Ms. Mallory and Ms. Perez say they categorically condemn anti-Semitism, and that when they asked Ms. Wruble to leave the group, it had nothing to do with her being Jewish. But they acknowledged that the role of Jewish women was discussed in that first meeting.
“Since that conversation, we’ve all learned a lot about how while white Jews, as white people, uphold white supremacy, ALL Jews are targeted by it,” Ms. Mallory said in a statement to The New York Times.
It is a shame McCain did not bring this up.
In any event, Mallory had a chance to send a strong and unequivocal message condemning Jew hatred and she blew it. Or more accurately, she couldn’t.
Do the math.
