Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory recently made a disgusting comment about inferring that Jews are white supremacists. In a statement to The New York Times printed on Sunday, Mallory said that “white Jews” continued to “uphold white supremacy”, even as Jews were “targeted by” white supremacy.
This is just another horrendous proof that some of the key leaders of the women’s march are antisemites themselves. The following video highlights some of the key points calling out the Jew-hatred of the leaders of the women’s march.
In the NYT she continued to say that “since that conversation, we’ve all learned a lot about how while white Jews, as white people, uphold white supremacy, ALL Jews are targeted by it,” Mallory said.
Mallory spoke out in response to a report earlier this month by Tablet, which claimed that Mallory and fellow Women’s March co-chair Carmen Perez had accused the Jewish people of special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people and blaming Jews for the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
First of all, Jews are NOT White. Jews are called Jews because we are from Judea, the land of Israel. After 2,000 years of exile, Jews today are white skinned, black skinned, brown skinned, yellow-skinned etc. Jews are not white! The Jewish people are a distinct nation associated with a specific geographic location. It is only due to the circumstance of exile that today we represent all skin colors. But it is a misunderstanding by many to think that Jews are white.
Then Mallory blames Jews for being white supremacists while admitting that we have been targeted by white supremacists. One’s mouth just falls to floor when hearing that comment.
No, Jews are not white supremacists. Sad that Mallory does not even know the history of the black civil rights movement in America. Many of the leaders of that movement were Jews. One of the more prominent Jews who led the civil rights movement, and even marched with Martin Luther King, was Rabbi Riskin, today the Rabbi of Efrat, in the Judean Hills.
What’s with this new ignorant trend calling Jews white??? Jews are indigenous to Judea… regardless of appearance; Sephardic or Ashkenazi. Jews = Judean, Hebrew, Israelite or whatever other name. The point is Jews are indigenous to Judea. #Duh

Jews have been the victims of deadly Antisemitism for so long.
We won’t be demeaned or have our history inverted by the new Antisemites.

The ever clueless @TamikaDMallory: “we’ve all learned a lot about how while white Jews, as white people, uphold white supremacy, ALL Jews are targeted by it”
I guess it’s another awesome Jewish achievement: upholding white supremacy while being targeted by white supremacy… 🙃 https://t.co/CMp8DTVXbY

Fascinating insights here from @TamikaDMallory.
Tamika, can you tell me, were my grandparents upholding white supremacy when they were sent to Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, and Theresienstadt? pic.twitter.com/5p0xCgynGQ

Whew, the organizers of the Women’s March on NYC specifically call out Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour in their latest fundraising email and make it abundantly clear their NYC org isn’t affiliated with Women’s March Inc., which they say is “anti-Semitic, anti-gay, anti-woman.” pic.twitter.com/k7kCcN2SdI
