Women’s March Attempts Damage Control

Today’s Women’s March, the third such endeavor since Trump’s election in November 2016, is all about virtue signaling and damage control. The organizers are trying to save their brand even as founders continue to put their anti-Semitism on display.

No, it’s not just baseless accusations. As noted before, Tablet magazine’s in-depth strongly sourced article lays out how awful the anti-semitism is from the founders and throughout the entire organization.

Has that stopped Tamika Mallory from digging a deeper hole for herself? Nope, not one bit. Tap-dancing around the questions regarding Israel is not a pretty look.

Which led to quite a few celebrities dropping their support of the organization. Which led to Debbie Wasserman Schultz getting a smidgen of a clue and dropping her support. Which has also led to several chapters around the country canceling their planned march completely, and the Washington State chapter closed altogether.

In fact, the National Park Service estimates that attendance in DC today will barely top 10,000.

Hence the damage control.

Successful social movements are always the target of deceitful campaigns and attempts to undermine them. The Women’s March is no different.

Yes, that’s the opening to Angela Garza’s attempt at damage control.

So, the very real and accurate anti-semitic statements by Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour have been taken out of context? That’s the implication here folks. Not only that, but Angie is implying that because we don’t like anti-semitism, we are the ones hurting their virtue-signaling, intersectionality cause. 

The original Women’s March was an important catalyst for women across the nation to channel their anger into governing power. It has opened up the imagination of millions and women are questioning the status quo: How do we build a world where women are seen and respected as human beings? What are the barriers between us that get in the way of us being powerful, together? What happens when we, inevitably, break each other’s hearts? Is there room for us to find each other again, and under what conditions?

As a co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network and a longtime community organizer, I know firsthand what happens to successful and impactful social movements — those who are afraid that those social movements will usurp their unearned power, wage deceitful campaigns to try and undermine them. The Women’s March is no different — it has been demonized, and there have been those who have tried to detract this powerful organizing vehicle from its purpose — to make women powerful in every aspect of our lives.

But as Bernice Johnson Reagan once sang, “We who believe in freedom shall not rest until it comes.” We know that the Women’s March is about the power that can be created when people come together to demand full and complete personhood. It’s about the call for all of us to step up and be leaders who light the way towards a better future.

Oh well, isn’t that special?

Calling out the virulent anti-semitism that the Women’s March founders practice every day is somehow usurping the unearned power of women?

Calling out Linda Sarsour’s love of all things Islam and Tamika Mallory’s fan girling of Louis Farrakhan is a campaign of deceit?

Angela talks about how she doesn’t respect perfection from the Women’s March founders and organizers. That’s nice. Sounds like she’s willing to overlook racist anti-semitism because the cause matters more.

Sorry Angela, your attempt at damage control is an EPIC FAIL. Sweeping racism, a love for all things Islam, and anti-semitism along with an anti-Israel bias under the rug is the very opposite of empowering women. You know it and so do we.

    Angela Garza: Does she consider herself a modern-day Joan of Arc?

    Are the offending members the officers of Womans March Inc.

  • Robin H says:

    “successful and impactful” What exactly has the Women’s movement impacted? Other than the sale of pink yarn and cardboard and markers? Has there been any legislation to change anything? How do you define success when everyone is marching for a different reason?

    • GWB says:

      You know…..
      Could all these protest marches (particularly anti-Trump) actually be a conspiracy by Michael’s to sell more markers and poster board and yarn?

  • Scott says:

    Good post Nina, but don’t forget, pro-life women are also not welcomed at the “womens march”.. pointing out that only those in favor of killing babies are welcome at the march would probably be referred to as a “deceitful campaign” as well..

    It’s all those wreckers and kulaks, doncha know! This theme is at least as old as marxism, and probably as old as mankind.

    As a co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network
    Hmmm, I’m seeing a theme here. Marxism everywhere.

    there have been those who have tried to detract this powerful organizing vehicle from its purpose
    Look, I know the cis-het patriarchal grammar rules are hard and stuff, but “detract” means to take away from a quantity. What you meant was “distract”. Now, it could have been autocorrect, but that’s why we used to have “editors”.

    shall not rest until [freedom] comes
    Then now might be the time to Sit Down.
    Because you’ve come a long way, baby.

    full and complete personhood
    Unless you’re in the womb, you’ve pretty much accomplished that (and more) in the U.S.A.
    Not so much in that place that all you marxists love to support – those two little spots on either side of Israel.

    she doesn’t respect perfection
    Fair’s fair, Nina. Gotta call you out, too. 🙂

    the cause matters more
    Of course it does. Because the actual cause has never been actual equality – it’s about tearing down our pretty dang great society so a marxist utopia can be erected in its place. It’s about achieving power.
