- The liberal women's march will follow
the march for life thisweekend on the grounds
of the nation's capital.
It's getting lots of attention this year
for concern over antisemitism,including leaders
associating with antisemitslike Louis Farrakhan.
I spoke with Tiana Loweat the Washington Examiner
about the march and concernfor the direction it's heading.
Tiana, tell us about theclaims of antisemitism
among the leadership of the women's march.
- There is this extremelydamning tabloid report
that came out last monththat alleged that member,
Tamika Mallory, who's theco-President of the women's march,
in one of the initial meetingsestablishing the organization
had insinuated this conspiracythat Jews are to blame
for anti-black oppression.
And then there's beenthe continued association
with Rasmea Odeh, a convictedterrorist who's killed Jews
and most notably, LindaSarsour, Tamika Mallory,
and Carmen Perez' devotionto Louis Farrakhan
who has equated Jews with termites.
- Tell us about what happened on The View
with the women's marchCo-President, Tamika Mallory.
- So, it took none other thana daytime talk show host,
Meghan McCain, to question Tamika Mallory,
hold her feet to thefire and not just say,
"Do you think that Farrakhan is wrong,
"but do you condemn what he has to say?"
Tamika Mallory, it was astonishing!
She continually fell back on,
"I do not agree with everything he says.
"However, I won't condemn it."
Then attempted to useidentity politics to spin away
her responsibility forassociating with a man
who has used extremelyviolent and hateful,
openly antisemiticlanguage to describe Jews.
- Is there a disconnect withthe leaders of the march
and what other women in thecountry want or believe?
I mean, I think thatthe women's march is not
inherently a terribleconcept, female empowerment
matters in a country where womenstill have to make strides.
But most women don't wannabe sliced and diced into this
intersectional catastrophewhere they have to
alienate pro-life women,where they have to alienate
Christian women, there theyhave to alienate Jewish women,
and you're on this intensehierarchy of oppression
where you have more pointsif you're more LGBTQ
or if you're more of a woman of color.
This is not what women want.
Women want to uplift eachother, not tear each other down.
- You've also written thatsome of the march leaders
have ties to terrorists.
- Yes, so Angela Daviswill be speaking at the
She is a convicted terrorist.
She was formerly on the FBI's most wanted
and Rasmea Odeh, someonewho they were fighting for.
The hashtag was Justice for Rasmea
and she, again, convicted, found guilty
of killing two Jews in Israel.
- How is this playing outin today's political arena?
- So I think, for awhile, those in the left
thought that they couldcoast by on continuing
to associate with the women's march
because they were seen asintersectional feminist heroes,
they hated the president,they were hateful towards
all the right people, theyalienated pro-life Christians.
But I think now that people are seeing
that intersectionalityalways devours its own
because you cannot claimthe mantle of oppression
without blaming someone else.

Thank you for your time.
