The Women’s March is a movement that swept America by surprise shortly after President Trump’s election. Since its initiation two years ago, the movement has increasingly gained more followers and influence around the United States. Although the movement claims to triumph women’s rights and independence, it’s not as noble as it portrays itself to be.
To begin, one thing must be clarified: the problem is not with the cause, it’s the movement. Women’s rights is an absolutely amazing cause that does indeed need to be addressed and women undoubtedly deserve equal treatment on a number of levels—I believe most decent folks can agree on that. But, the tragedy of the modern-day feminist movement is that it has been hijacked by radical leftists. These extremists, particularly the leaders of the Women’s March, have turned feminism from a noble cause into a mean, divisive, spiteful, hate-filled movement. The feminist movement is no longer what it was in the good old days of the 50s and 60s. Rather, it has chosen to adopt the typical, leftist attitude of the 21st century—blaming other groups of people for societal problems. Their problem? Straight, white-conservative males, President Trump, and the Jews—but we’ll get to that later.
These are the “progressive” idols of the modern-day feminist movement:
Tomika Mallory—a supporter of the radical Black Lives Matter movement.
Linda Sarsour—a Muslim, Palestinian-American and Anti-Semite. The word “Sarsour” in Arabic translates to “Cockroach”.
Carmen Perez—dubbed “Latina of the Year” and a prominent social activist.
I almost forgot to mention how many times these three women have been arrested for civil disobedience (among other things), but that’s besides the point. Carmen Perez is probably the least radical of the three, although she has expressed her open sympathy for Black Liberation Army member and cop-killer Assata Shakur. Her colleagues have also expressed this support for Shakur as well as Rasmea Odeh, a convicted Palestinian terrorist.
Tomika D. Mallory is a staunch supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, a radical organization that supports the murder of American police officers, and a movement that sparked violent riots around the United States during Barack Obama’s presidency.
Sharia Law-loving Linda Sarsour stands above the rest; she is the dominant force of the three. Her mouth spits hateful venom and rhetoric every time she gets on a podium to speak. She is a registered member of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), an organization that has been proven to have links to Palestinian terror group Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. In a deleted Twitter response to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim who endured horrific genital mutilation in Somalia, Sarsour stated that Ali “needed an a** whipping”, “didn’t deserve to be a woman” and even wished that “she could take her [Ali’s] vagina away.”
Prior to the outburst, Ali had accused Sarsour of being a fraud for women’s rights and had called her out on her hateful speech. Additionally, she had called for Jihad against the United States and President Trump. Here are just a few of Sarsour’s tweets:
Really, Linda? Jews are creepy to you? Not Al-Qaeda, ISIS, or Hamas? Come on. Sarsour promotes a mission of “diversity”, portrays herself to be a lover of all peoples, and claims that the Women’s March triumphs ALL women—meaning any woman who is not Jewish, conservative, or pro-life. It’s absolute hypocrisy.
This brings up another point. How can you support Sharia Law, yet call yourself a feminist? Sharia Law is anything but women’s rights. According to extreme cases of Sharia Law, a woman should be punished if she is raped; meaning the male perpetrator is not held accountable. Women are required to “modestly” dress in unreasonable and cumbersome garments such as the burka while men walk freely.
Moreover, Sarsour has been accused for silencing a victim of sexual assault. In 2009, Asmi Fathelhab, one of Sarsour’s employees at the Arab American Association of New York, came to Sarsour for help after one of her male partners was making inappropriate sexual advances on her. Sarsour immediately fat-shamed Fathelhab, saying that sexual assault didn’t happen to someone that looked like her. Sarsour and the company said that Majed Seif, the perpetrator, was a “God-fearing man” that couldn’t have possibly committed sexual harassment. Further, she threatened to blackmail Fathelhab and make sure she was refused from any future jobs. Fathelhab stated, “She oversaw an environment that was unsafe and abusive to women. Women who put Sarsour on a pedestal for women’s rights and empowerment deserve to know how she really treats us.”
The Women’s March co-chairs have also expressed their support for the prostitution business. This month, federal law enforcement officers shut down a website named Backpage and raided the home of one of its founders. The Backpage website promotes prostitution and illegally offers women to clients. This received criticism from the Women’s March leaders, who stated that “sex worker’s rights are women’s rights.” Great job, Women’s March! You just defended an enterprise that exploits and objectifies women into sexual objects used for pleasure. Tell me more about your so-called feminist agenda.
Most recently, all three of these women have expressed their undying support for the Nation of Islam’s infamous leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan has repeatedly used the phrase “Satanic Jews”, blamed Jews for the 9/11 attacks, has called Adolf Hitler “A very great man,” accused Jews of participating in the African slave trade, and believes that white people should be murdered. “I don’t care what they put on me,” he says in a fiery speech. “The government is my enemy…the powerful Jews are my enemy!” Farrakhan exclaims. This is an excerpt from another one of Farrakhan’s speeches:
“The world will never be the same again…white folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew! And I’m here to say…your time is up. Your world is through. And the good Jews…you better separate from these Satanic Jews, lest they take you down to Hell with them, ’cause that’s where they headed.”
Tomika Mallory attended both of those speeches, causing a maelstrom of harsh criticism from liberals and conservatives alike. Sarsour and Perez publicly defended Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic speech on Twitter, stating that “there are no perfect leaders.” It’s hard to claim that a movement has legitimacy when it’s led and supported by anti-semites, phony feminists, and extremists.
If the Women’s March and the Feminist movement truly cared about women’s rights, they would be denouncing female genital mutilation and the continuous oppression of women in the Middle East. They’d be protesting Hillary Clinton’s handing out of billions of dollars to the Saudi government. They would be marching in solidarity with Iranian women, who have taken to removing their burkas to protest against the Mullahs and Ayatollahs.
They would be marching against all of the rape, sexual harassment, and molestation taking place in Hollywood.
They’d be coming up with ideas of how to prevent domestic violence, how to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace, or how to make sure that women feel empowered to defend themselves. Instead, they have chosen to glorify terrorists and anti-semites, call for violence against those who disagree with their beliefs, and exploit and blacklist other women.
Rather than try to solve problems that women face in society on a daily basis, they choose to march against President Trump for a crude comment he made years ago and whine about how Hillary didn’t win the election. The pettiness is just off the charts.
The decadence of the Feminist movement will never destroy the women’s rights cause, however. Let’s face it—men are pigs sometimes, and women suffer everyday from sexual harassment and abusive spouses. These are problems that we shouldn’t turn away from, and I applaud you if you marched to triumph those rights. Just know that the leaders of the movement have an agenda—likely much different from yours. We should make sure everyone is equal, regardless of gender. But, the Women’s March and the Feminist movement just aren’t the answer to that.
