The Women’s March is in a bad, bad place. The leaders of the movement have publicly associated with known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, praising him and his work.
Tamika Mallory, one of the leaders of the movement, appeared on “The View” this week and was pressed by Meghan McCain about her association with Farrakhan. McCain rattled went on to rattle off a number of Farrakhan’s remarks about the Jewish people and then asked Mallory if she condemned those statements.
As you probably already seen, things did not go well for Mallory. She danced around as she was never able to bring herself to condemn those racist remarks. Since that appearance the Women’s March has lost a number of sponsors, even the Democratic National Committee has pulled their support. Now, one prominent celebrity supporter may also be turning against the group.
On Wednesday, comedian Sarah Silverman, who happens to be Jewish, tweeted that she “can’t imagine having such mild feelings over the hatred of an entire people.”
I cannot imagine having such mild feelings over such a furious hatred of an entire people. He calls us termites. I’m heartbroken but im gonna stay hopeful because I don’t wanna give up on Tamika. (oh wow I s that how SHE feels about LF?)
Oh this life… https://t.co/GCpOYZdgLT

Although the comedian says she’s “heartbroken” by the appearance she still appears to still support the Women’s March and their leaders, for the time being.
