Women’s March Leader Quotes Anti-Semitic Friend to Prove She Is Not Anti-Semitic

Tamika Mallory came under fire for attending a speech by extreme anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

Tamika Mallory, one of the organizers of the Women’s March, was roundly criticized this week for attending a sermon by extreme anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

At the Saviours’ Day address Mallory attended, Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, lashed out at Jews, calling them “the mother and father of apartheid” and slamming  “that Satanic Jew.”

Farrakhan has a long history of violent remarks against the Jewish people, including calling Hitler “a very great man,” and the Jewish faith a “gutter religion.”

“Don’t you forget, when it’s God who puts you in the ovens, it’s forever!” he said at a Madison Square Garden event in 1985.

Mallory denied charges of anti-Semitism, quoting her friend Mysonne, a rapper from the Bronx and left-leaning political activist, who backed her claim she has nothing against the Jewish people.

“It’s hard to see these people attacking Tamika Mallory calling her a antisemite and not seeing those who know better speak up. This will pass and she will Emerge but I will never forget the Silence of her friends, who can help her. NEVER!!” Mysonne tweeted.


However, Mysonne himself espouses anti-Semitic sentiments, and even voiced some of them on the very Twitter thread the Women’s March leader quoted.

The rapper accused Jews of oppressing black people, saying, “Farakhan [sic] has a view of Jews based on the pain and harm that he can prove they’ve inflicted on blacks for hundreds of years!”

“To disagree with farakhan [sic] is understandable,” he posted, “but to act as if the violence, pain, control and destruction that people he has evidence that are in fact Jewish have imposed on Blacks is not Realistic.”

Then, rather inexplicably, Mysonne claimed he is not anti-Semitic and that “some of my best friends are Jews.”

Mysonne was arrested on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. while demonstrating in favor of a permanent fix for Dreamers, illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.

The rapper is not Mallory’s only anti-Semite friend, another being fellow Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour. The Muslim activist has defended Farrakhan in the past, blaming the “Jewish media” for his (and her) controversial reputation.

Trump and the ‘Racist Tweets’

What does “racist” even mean anymore? Racism is the headline on President Trump’s Sunday tweets -- the media-Democrat complex assiduously describes them as “racist tweets” as if that were a fact rather than a trope.
