The celebrated Women’s March that emerged as a protest over President Trump’s defeat of Hillary Clinton continues to be plagued by problems just short of its two-year anniversary.
It was the day after Trump’s inauguration that millions of women wearing pink “pussy” hats swarmed Washington D.C. as well as other major cities in a primal scream over the voters’ rejection of the nation’s first female president and it was given adoring blanket coverage by CNN and the majority of the mainstream media.
The march morphed into a movement that soon spawned the MeToo inquisition and the abandonment of due process for any male who may have offended a woman decades ago which bottomed out during the dismal and disgraceful Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.The Women’s March now also appears to have reached peak outrage and is disintegrating as the truth about the anti-Semitism of leaders like Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory has been revealed and the anti-white bigotry that now serves as a cornerstone of the political left can no longer be concealed.

The latest helping of woe comes from out on the left coast as a California rally scheduled in January has been called off by organizers because there were too many white women.
Organizers planning a local California Women’s March for January have pulled the plug on the event because attendees would have been “overwhelmingly white.”
Humboldt County organizers were considering hosting a rally in Eureka, Calif., on Jan. 19 to commemorate the third anniversary of the original Women’s March in Washington, D.C., held the day after President Trump’s inauguration in 2017. But they decided to can the event because of fears it would be perceived as being noninclusive.
“The local organizers are continuing to meet and discuss how to broaden representation in the organizing committee to create an event that represents and supports peoples who live here in Humboldt. Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the group said Friday in a statement. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”
It’s hard to see how this is a positive development and despite the stated intent to promote diversity, the actions of the Women’s March, in general are divisive, bigoted and toxic but what can one expect when prominent members of the national leadership have embraced the anti-Semitic demagogic hatemonger Louis Farrakhan?

According to several sources, it was there—in the first hours of the first meeting for what would become the Women’s March—that something happened that was so shameful to many of those who witnessed it, they chose to bury it like a family secret. Almost two years would pass before anyone present would speak about it.
It was there that, as the women were opening up about their backgrounds and personal investments in creating a resistance movement to Trump, Perez and Mallory allegedly first asserted that Jewish people bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people—and even, according to a close secondhand source, claimed that Jews were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade. These are canards popularized by The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, a book published by Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam—“the bible of the new anti-Semitism,” according to Henry Louis Gates Jr., who noted in 1992: “Among significant sectors of the black community, this brief has become a credo of a new philosophy of black self-affirmation.”
The optics of this certainly isn’t going to help with public relations problems that the organization is experiencing after the devastating Tablet expose and the subsequent reportage by the NYT that have revealed the hatred at the center of the movement.
