Women's March Founder Defends Farrakhan Support, Refuses to Condemn His Anti-Semitism
Op-ed: Jews must boycott this year's march.
Mallory would not directly condemn anti-Semitic remarks made by Farrakhan, whom she's even referred to as the "greatest of all time."
"I didn’t call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric," Mallory said. "I called him the greatest of all time because of what he’s done in black communities."
In a recent op-ed, New York Post contributor Melanie Notkin recommended that people of Jewish faith skip this year's Women's March, scheduled for Saturday in Washington, D.C.
She said Tuesday on Fox & Friends that Mallory referring to Farrakhan as the "GOAT" is "ridiculously insulting" to the Jewish community.
"The Southern Poverty Law Center calls the Nation of Islam a hate group. [Mallory] is a very active member of this hate group," Notkin said.
She said that although Mallory says she doesn't agree with all of the group's beliefs, the amount she does agree with is concerning.
"The march is not something that Jews should feel comfortable in right now, I don't think, because the leaders will not denounce Farrakhan and they will sort of backtrack in terms of what they say about anti-Semitism," she said.
