This is a very detailed article with a lot of sources. It discusses the anti-semitism, the finance issues, and it briefly discusses the lack of LGBTQ presence in the Women’s March leadership.
Post election, America was a powder keg of frustration, and people mobilized. The Women’s March was instrumental, with a lot of decentralized groups working together to make it happen.
To hear that the women in leadership are behaving this way is shocking to me. I have no love for how Palestine is treated, but Jewish Americans are targeted for religions discrimination at a rate that is fucked up. To imply or support anyone that seems to believe some sort of racist conspiracy theory like Louis Farrakhan, is not okay by me. It’s very telling that every Jewish woman that was involved left.
I had wondered why the Women’s March had not tapped into the very active and established activism of the LGBTQ community. We have the experience of the same sex marriage fight, and decades of this under our belt as a community. Yet, there is not much crossover.
It’s a really long article, but it’s a good one.
I feel the Women’s March was one of those gestalt moments in history where as a people we were all of one mind. You can’t make a corporation, fleece out all that money, and capture that magic a second time.
For the record, as a financial auditor? That explanation of their books would have me digging for more. Red flag! Red Flag!
