#MarchForwardMA @MarchForwardMA wins. We have been assessing statements from hundreds of chapters and orgs regarding #WomensMarch #AntiSemitism. We can conclude this statement is the most shockingly offensive yet. Comments are equally disgusted. #EpicFail…
"We acknowledge that much of the demand to ‘condemn’ or ‘renounce’ Farrakhan is not itself a call to work for justice on behalf of marginalized communities, but is merely performative. We are not merely performative allies together in this movement." @MarchForwardMA #VictimShames
The Comments:

"All good. This was the last straw.
Check out We Are March On (@WeAreMarchOn):…"
Comments Cont. @MarchForwardMA

"Why the surgical avoidance of the term "anti-Semitism"? As a progressive woman and a Jew, I object to the failure to condemn hatred in all its forms EXPLICITLY."

"Really, is it that hard to just treat everybody decently?"…
Comments Cont. @MarchForwardMA

"If it seems like some people are extra angry at the Women's March organizers it's probably because they're people who for the most part were on "our side" fighting the Trumps so to see them condone Trump-like bigotry hurts more personally."
Comments Cont.

"This is UNACCEPTABLE. And yes, I am yelling about this. @TheJewishAdvct needs to do a story about this!"

"Unless the current leaders in charge of #WomensMarch fully address the hate that exists within their ranks, I cannot support the leaders of the movement."
"Really, I am so angry at your response that I can't even think clearly enough to respond... I will no longer associate myself with @MarchForwardMA. I am hurt beyond words. Once again, #Jews are betrayed. I am not surprised, but I am profoundly disgusted, not to mention furious."
"This came from the National leaders. Others I know received the same email from their state chapter. They need to change the leadership & get rid of these militant extremists. Ruining the whole movement. I was insulted & angry myself."

"I'm out."
"Would have been so hard to say "We do not agree with #Farrakhan, and we renounce his #AntiSemitic views." This is a guy who said Hitler was a great guy. If a white man had said that, you'd be calling for him to resign and for everyone to renounce him. #Bigotry is wrong, period."
Comments Cont. @MarchForwardMA

"There is no double standard here. You are hedging. Any leaders who cannot fully and forcefully denounce and reject Farrakhan and his hatred without qualifiers have lost their authority to speak for me. I am done."

"I'm done."
Comments Cont. @MarchForwardMA

"I'm done with you, too."

"Plus, performative for whom? It's like someone threw in a buzzword that is actually more appropriate to when white folks are "performing" their anti #racism for PoC, to make themselves look more anti-racist than thou."
"@MarchForwardMA, equally as pathetic as your statement is how few people are outraged by it. Look how few people have commented here. #AntiSemitism is alive and well."

Includes… @DoreeLewak with @photobytali's #WomensMarch petition…
"#Intersectionality as practiced today, is a racket, a con job, a pseudo-intellectual mask for #bigotry—and nothing has exposed its pretensions better than the furor over #Farrakhan."

"@MarchForwardMA managed to use “#intersectional” five times throughout like a magic talisman"
"What makes it impossible to hold such a movement together is when bigots find apologists to demand their bigotry be indulged.. and passive observers pretend they don’t exist."

"contrary to intersectional gobbledygook and victim-blaming #Intersectionality is not liberationist."
Neither of these absurdities approach the most ridiculous part of this entire spectacle, however, which is that, during the 2016 presidential campaign, Farrakhan praised, and nearly endorsed, the very man upon whom resistance to which the entire #WomensMarch is predicated: Trump.
"That there is even a debate to be had about #Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam demonstrates the soft #bigotry of low expectations many liberals continue to harbor with regard to their black countrymen. In reality, there is no debate." @ShaunKing @MarchForwardMA @MichaelSkolnik
@MarchForwardMA CEO👩‍💼didn't include a Jew, Black Jew, Trans or LGBTQ🏳️‍🌈 before centering her own experience as none of us.
#MarchForwardMA @MarchForwardMA

#Farrakhan issue is about #AntiSemitism #Homophobia. You have erased Jews from your response: "While 53% of white women voted for Trump."

White Evangelicals, Born-Again, Christians, Mormons, Catholics voted Trump avg 62%

👉Jews voted 71% Clinton
This is UNACCEPTABLE. It's in your court now. @MarchForwardMA
Stop Making Excuses for Farrakhan’s Lunacy
The Farrakhan Problem: Why does an #AntiSemite get a pass from the liberal #left?

"There is no meaningful moral difference between Louis #Farrakhan and Richard #Spencer." Or David #Duke. #HateIsHate #LoveIsLove…

I have to say I am very disappointed in my father who I admire more than just about anyone. Being disappointed in a man you chose to love singularly when you were three-years-old as he sat just so on a sofa, is not easy. He taught me the NYTimes was essential to Hitler's success.
At the age of 84, he believes every word it prints. How does a man teach subliminal imagery – decoding the manipulation of advertising – tearing through 70's train cars to pull alcohol and cigarette ads down to study in his college lectures, rely solely on the @nytimes coverage?
He shared evidence of how @nytimes buried and obscured what was happening to Europe's Jews. But now there is no possibility for dialogue. In his home, there is one viewpoint, the viewpoint of the Times' editors and their correspondents on the ground delivered right to their door.

MoveOn is an amazing organization w/ massive advocacy reach.
One day, 3 people on their 6 person board are outed as tied directly to Richard Spencer's neoNazi group. People are incensed & demand these 3 board members resign! MoveOn defends them and Just. Moves. On.

.@womensmarch has tweeted words and taken zero action. Window is closed. #GoodbyeWM #WeAreNotWanted #womensmarch
These @womensmarch chapters put out pretty words. The national #womensmarch controls the database. The database won.
