Default Women’s March Stripped Of Human Rights Award For Its Blatant Antisemitism

I don't know anything about the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, but kudos to them for not kowtowing to a movement imply because its a movement...

Women’s March Stripped Of Human Rights Award For Its Blatant Antisemitism

Quote:
For all the harping the left does about how the rhetoric from Trump and the right is fueling antisemitism, one organization has at least accurately pinpointed one of its sources.

The Women’s March, a radically left feminist movement is often present at every high-profile protest you’ve seen over the past months, leading women in one chant or another. They claim to be for every social justice narrative you’ve ever heard such as equality and justice but have proven to be highly anti-white, anti-male, anti-rich, and very anti-Republican.

Among the “anti’s” they subscribe to, you can also add anti-semitic.

Among their leadership is Linda Sarsour, a pro-Sharia activist who has spouted some very anti-semitic hate on numerous occasions, and even considers rabid anti-Semitic hate preacher Louis Farrakhan among her mentors. Sarsour’s anti-Semitism and the resulting hate that leaked into her own movement is now starting to get attention.

According to Ashe Schow at the Daily Wire, The Friedrich Ebert Foundation, a German socialist think-tank, was set to reward the Women’s March with a human rights award but has now rescinded the award after members of the organization wrote a very public letter denouncing the Women’s March.

“We believe that the Women’s March USA does not meet the criteria of this award, as its organizers have repeatedly attracted attention through antisemitic statements, the trivialization of antisemitism and the exclusion of Zionists and Jews since Women’s March USA’s establishment in 2017,” wrote foundation members. “Women’s March USA does not constitute an inclusive alliance.”

...“An organization that may support feminism, but discriminates against Jews and Zionists and denies Israel’s right to exist should not be honored by a democratic foundation that advocates diversity and speaks out against discrimination,” the group concluded.

It’s good to finally see the Women’s March being pointed out as the incredibly hateful movement it is after the American media and U.S. politicians have spent so much time making it seem like the group is pure as the driven snow.

Any group that is exclusive deserves a royal Karmic ass kicking.

Women’s March Stripped Of Human Rights Award For Its Blatant Antisemitism


There has been tension with various factions. Including black women with the white women who exit polls showed voted for Trump (and have now broken from him).
Perhaps the article has more to do with what the group has done to help elect women to house seats and speak out against misogyny and with the march in January coming up than any perceived squabble within the movement.

The non-inclusiveness, the anti this and anti that of this 'women's movement' along with history of it's leaders pretty much tell me I want nothing to do with them.

IF (capitalized) they had any effect on the results of the elections, it is, once again, the election of a person based on a physical trait, in this case a vagina, instead of qualifications, experience, and platform.

Anyone who would vote based on those items, are doing this country a disservice in the first degree.
