Watch: Tamika Mallory of the Women's March Refuses to Condemn Louis Farrakhan's Antisemitism
Bob Bland and Tamika Mallory, co-presidents of the Women's March, were on The View Monday morning to talk about their upcoming March on Washington and the controversies swirling around some of their members.
The panel's lone Republican, Meghan McCain, pressed Mallory to explain her association with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, whom the the Anti-Defamation League calls "the leading anti-Semite in America."
She cited several of his anti-Semitic statements to make her point.
"We did not make those remarks," Mallory said in response. "What I will say to you is I don't agree with many of Minister Farrakhan's statements."
When asked if she would condemn Farrakhan's anti-Semitic statements, she dodged. "I don't agree with these statements," she repeated.
"You won't condemn it!" McCain exclaimed.
"No, no, no -- to be very clear, it's not my language," Mallory insisted. "It's not the way that I speak. It is not how I organize, and I think it is very clear over the past 20 years of my own personal activism, my own personal track record, who I am, and that I should never be judged through the lens of a man," she added defiantly as the audience applauded in approval.
As annoying as Tamika Mallory was in that clip, the most aggravating part came at the very end when the dimwitted View audience actually applauded her unpersuasive evasions.
Mallory is a regular attendee at the Nation of Islam's annual "Saviours' Day" event and has repeatedly and lavishly praised Farrakhan on social media. In his most recent Saviours' Day speech, Farrakhan said that "Jews control the media, Hollywood, the FBI, most of Europe, and Mexico."
"White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I'm here to say your time is up, your world is through," he said at the Feb. 2018 speech.
He also said the "white people running Mexico are Mexican Jews."
Mallory defended Farrakhan, saying that she has "been going to this event regularly for over 30 years."
I'm sure if McCain publicly associated with Richard Spencer, and justified her support for white supremacy by saying, "I don't agree with many of his statements -- I should never be judged through the lens of a man," the audience would have clapped like seals for that too.
Last November, one of the founders of the left-wing "Women's March" called on co-founders Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Bob Bland to step down from the organization because of their anti-Semitism and anti-gay rhetoric.
