First it was the Israeli lesbian group that was kicked out the Chicago Women's March.
Then Linda Sarsour and other leaders refused to denounce Louis Farrakhan's grotesque anti-Semitism (particularly in light of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh--Farrakhan had previously referred to Jews as termites).
Soon, the Hollywood celebritards began backing away from the Women's March--Alyssa Milano last week, Deborah Messing this weekend.
Now, even a socialist organization is gettin in on the act.
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Foundation, a German socialist think-tank, was set to reward the Women’s March with a human rights award but has now rescinded the award after members of the organization wrote a very public letter denouncing the Women’s March.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.”The members noted the anti-Semitic actions by the organization such as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel, Linda Sarsour’s repeated insults towards the Jewish peoples, and Women’s March leadership being friendly with Farrakhan as proof that the Women’s March is an anti-Semitic organization.“Just as important the struggle for feminism still is, so is the fight against other forms of discrimination, as well as to work inclusively and to not exclude Jews,” the members added.“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.
Good to see that you can go too far for even the German socialists (because wasn't it a group of German socialists who.....)
