Women's March Loses Human Rights Award Due to Their Ties With Anti-Semitism
With the anti-Semitic tendencies of the leadership of the Women’s March, particularly the organization’s leader, Linda Sarsour, finally surfacing, the alleged female empowerment group received a staunch rebuke from a prominent Democratic think tank, The Friedrich Ebert Foundation.

The Women’s March was poised to win a Human Rights award from the foundation this evening, but the group’s nomination was pulled; one of the foundation’s umbrella organizations, Critique of Anti-Semitism and Jewish Studies, wrote a letter condemning the Women’s March’s anti-Semitic, anti-Israel rhetoric, as well as their complicity in the radically anti-Semitic language from leaders such as Louis Farrakhan:

“We believe that the Women's March USA does not meet the criteria of this award, as its organizers have repeatedly attracted attention through anti-semitic statements, the trivialization of antisemitism and the exclusion of Zionists and Jews since Women's March USA establishment in 2017. Women's March USA does not constitute an inclusive alliance,” the letter read.

Indeed, the Women’s March is notorious for its anti-semitic rhetoric. In addition to some of their leaders ties to Louis Farrakhan, who recently compared Jews to termites, the group’s highest leadership props up Hamas terrorists and cop killers.
