Tammy Bruce: Women's March Became All About Identity Politics, Not Women's Rights
Author and conservative commentator Tammy Bruce said the Women's March has become more about race and identity politics than its stated mission to advance women's rights.
Women's March founder Teresa Shook has asked several co-chairs to resign over accusations they are pushing racist and anti-Semitic views, Bruce noted.
"It was an amazing organizational effort, started by a retired lawyer in Hawaii using a Facebook page," Bruce said. But, she added, it soon evolved and began pushing out pro-life and other voices.
Bruce blasted the other founders of the Women's March mentioned by Shook, which include activist Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, for refusing to condemn anti-Semitic minister Louis Farrakhan.
"What they do go back to is saying that, as women of color, you know, this is our leadership. That, in other words, if you disagree with them, you’re racist," Bruce said.
She said the Democratic Party will have to answer for the actions of the Women's March organization -- a group largely aligned along the left wing of politics.
"They’re either going to have to address these kinds of issues regarding identity politics, which will always sink into this framework, or really talk about ideas," she said. "[And] the importance of ideas regardless of your complexion, where you come from, and what makes us all Americans, and certainly what we have in common as women across the board, as well."
She said that the left often "co-opts" organizations like the Women's March, and "uses it to divide."
Bruce said the march group has evolved into one whose rhetoric is "about defeating white nationalism and the white man. It's not about women's rights at all."
