Things got heated on The View today when Meghan McCain asked leaders of the organization about their association with anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. McCain specifically put Tamika Mallory on the spot, asking her about a time when she called Farrakhan “the greatest of all time.”
“I would never be comfortable supporting someone who (said) … ‘I’m not anti-Semite, I’m anti-termite. It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality” McCain said, directly quoting Farrakhan.
“A lot of people, by a lot of people I include me in this, think you’re using your organization as anti-Semitism masked in activism and that you’re using identity politics to shield yourself from critiques,” McCain said. “You’re talking about all women being invited to that march? I’m pro-life. We were not invited.”
Instead of letting Mallory address McCain’s questions, co-founder Bob Bland jumped in and denied all of it.
McCain responded by asking Mallory if she would renounce Farrakhan’s comments about Jewish people.
“We did not make those remarks,” Mallory said.
“Do you condemn them?”, McCain asked?
Mallory again dodged the question, refusing to condemn the remarks and instead repeated that she doesn’t agree.
“You won’t condemn it,” McCain said again.
