“The View” co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain grilled Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory over her ties to Louis Farrakhan in a heated discussion on Monday morning. Mallory raised eyebrows when she said that the controversial Nation of Islam leader is the “greatest of all time because of what he’s done in black communities.”
“Tamika, you came under some fire for your relationship with Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam,” Hostin told the guest. “He’s known for being anti-Semitic, for being homophobic, but you do attend his events and you posted… a photo calling him the G.O.A.T., which means the greatest of all time. You are running an organization that says it fights bigotry. Do you understand why your association with him is quite problematic?”
The controversial leader of the radical Chicago-based Nation of Islam movement warned President Trump that the resumption of sanctions on Iran could lead to the destruction of the United States, and defended his participation in a group chant of ‘Death to Israel, Death to America’ earlier this week in Tehran.
I am not and have never been an enemy to America, nor the people of America. However, I love America enough to speak unpleasant truths that are in the best interests of an erring nation that perhaps she may change her conduct and course. I have an abiding love for the right to free speech, the right to a free press and the right every human being has to hear the truth. It is only truth spoken in season that can bring us what we desire of freedom, justice, equality and, ultimately, peace.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan led a chant of “Death to America!” on a solidarity visit to Iran this weekend, according to Iranian news sources. He also led a chant of “Death to Israel!”
Twitter has crossed a very serious line in its bias today, and one that it will have to work very hard to backtrack on.
Good Move, Netflix
Media giant Netflix backed down on an alleged plan to air a fawning documentary on Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Numerous groups protested the airing of the program.
Farrakhan is a raging anti-Semite, known for his numerous and vocal displays of bigotry. On his Twitter feed from July 31 (which has since been deleted), he announced the premiere of the film, which was to air August 1.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s latest unhinged rant includes comments about “Jewish power” and coercing women into anal sex.
Farrakhan on #MeToo and the Jews. What could go wrong?
Self-proclaimed prophets are rarely right about their doomsday predictions so I wouldn’t worry too much about this. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says the end of the white man is nigh. Does this mean he’s ready to kill whitey or does he think Mohammad is going to do it for him? I’ve found that it’s not all that productive to try to figure out what Screwy Louie is talking about and more fun to just enjoy his racist brand of insanity.
Either way it’s costing me a fortune in ammo.
Farrakahn receives a commission for each of his followers who undergoes a Scientology ‘auditing.’
Scientology is commonly known as the religion of the stars. Its reach inside Hollywood is deep, and celebrity recruitment is a huge component of the group’s marketing strategy. It sounds strange to describe the proselytizing efforts of a religion as a marketing strategy, but Scientology is unlike any other American religion. It operates as a business at best and as a cult at worst.
Wow! Sicker Together!
What Farrakhan Shares With the Intersectional Left
When CNN correspondent Jake Tapper broke the story that prominent leaders of the Women’s March were buddies with notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, a crisis broke out in Jewish-progressive circles. The awareness of growing anti-Semitism in progressive movements was nothing new for those of us who had been following trends in both the Black Lives Matter movement and the Women’s March since 2016, whose promotion of Linda Sarsour left a bad taste in the mouths of those of us for whom the concerns of these movements were consonant with our Zionism. In both instances, Jews who were self-proclaimed Zionists became persona non grata and were unwelcome at rallies and demonstrations dedicated to the self-determination of all oppressed or minority communities—everyone except for Jews.
The Women’s March — a civil-rights group at the center of protests against the Trump presidency — is losing top staffers and supporters over its leadership’s refusal to denounce a racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic rant by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
The latest to jump ship is high-profile staffer Alyssa Klein, who quit last week as the group’s social-media director.
Klein called Farrakhan “a dangerous troll,” and tweeted on March 5 that Women’s March leaders are “turning a blind eye to the hate spoken about a group of people.”
The leaders of the American Women’s March have spoken: Jews are unwelcome on the feminist left
“…As a double degenerate in his books (being a gay Jew), all of the above makes me angry.
But I’m less angry with Farrakhan, whose anti-Semitism is predictable.
I’m far angrier, the week of International Women’s Day, with a less predictable foe.
I am angry with the leaders of the American Women’s March: women who preach “intersectional feminism” but who refuse to condemn the man quoted above. Worse, who embrace him. I’m referring to leading feminist activists Tamika D. Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour.”
Gee, I almost feel sorry for her. Nah. How could anyone not see that this has been the trajectory of the left for Oh I dunno… the last two decades?

The group refuses to be accountable for a high-level alliance with an open anti-Semite.
A year ago, the Women’s March punctuated Trump’s inauguration with what was likely the largest single-day mass demonstration in American history. Today, it finds itself embroiled in an unexpected controversy after the initial refusal of several of its leaders to distance themselves from one of America’s leading anti-Semites, the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan. It’s a conflict that stems from the long, entangled history between black and Jewish communities in the United States, in which friendship and friction are giving way to struggle over the dimensions of peoplehood. It also reveals anti-Semitism as a crucial blind spot of contemporary left-wing activism.
A congressman reaffirmed his ties to an avowed anti-Semite this week, but you wouldn’t know about it if you get your news from the establishment media.
The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Peter Hasson broke the story of Democratic Rep. Danny Davis doubling down on claiming Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is an “outstanding human being.”
