On Monday, Tablet Magazine published an incredibly detailed exposé on Women’s March which revealed the “pussy hat” activist group’s anti-Semitic origins, as well as highly questionable finances reported two weeks ago by the Daily Beast – whose reporter had to virtually pry financial records from the organization in person.
According to the Tablet article, Women’s March co-chairs Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez both made anti-Semitic remarks in 2016 at one of the organization’s first meetings, and excluded “Jewish women” from its “unity principles” which call for the support of “Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, Muslim women, and queer and trans women.”
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. -Tablet
The group has also “refused” to put any Jewish women on its board, according to former spokeswoman Mercy Morganfield, who added that “Most of the Jewish people resigned and left.”
