March Inc, Louis Farrakhan, Theresa discussed on Guys We F****d
It's so so important, but now they're fighting they're fighting with each other and Theresa has asked the women to either adjust. The views or to step down. And so now there they were like on the internet like fighting back and forth, even on Twitter like the women's March official Twitter was throwing direct shade Theresa. They made a comment that was saying like. We like we appreciate Theresa for creating the Facebook page and then. Folk credit for everything at Liz. I don't know I wasn't at the meeting. So I don't know. And it's recent release a statement. That's my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the US and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair just an inclusive of women and all people Bob land who is a woman to meek. Mallory Linda, Sarsour and Carmen Perez of women's March Inc. Have steered the movement away from its true. Course, I have waited hoping they would find they would right the ship, but they have not in opposition to our unity principles, which you can find on the website or you could in in the past. I don't know if they left them up. They have allowed anti-semitism anti LGBTQ is sentiment and hateful racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist. Hateful beliefs. I call for the current co chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the movement, and it's original content. So I dug a little deeper into this and the icing on the cake is that a bunch of these women at the top of women's March Inc. Are devout followers of Louis Farrakhan? We've talked about on the podcast before just historically nightmare. He's a black nationalist. And he's the leader of the nation of Islam. Okay. So and even places like that are very reputable and not bias and just truly like kind of like ACLU, but even cleaner the southern poverty Law Center, and the anti defamation league have described Louis Farrakhan as antisemitic and a proponent of an anti white Cialis. Some of his remarks have also been considered homophobic. He also in the nineties remember organized the million man March, which was a civil rights movement that famously exc. -cluded black women, even though it was a civil rights issue. Not a gender issue. You don't like the late. And then in response, you know, the later on an million woman March was organized. Now. I am. But it was so he's I mean, just everything they later the women's March people have since made a statement saying, they are not followers of him. But I mean, of course, they did because they had to well, how do you know, they were just made. It was it was known. Oh, it's like if you just decided it's like when Tom Cruise, you know, like if he said like, oh, I don't believe in body themes or something right? Right. Like like EV literally everyone knows you do. And so it's just it's it's really interesting. And they said it's such a tough thing to to talk about because no one wants to hear like, it's hard being white. And that's absolutely not what I'm saying. But while other groups of women have certainly had more pressing issues as far as rights and physical safety women of color, white women are kind of trophy holders for shame and guilt..
