Alyssa Milano Won't Speak at Women's March Unless Leaders Condemn Anti-Semitic Hate Speech

by Charlotte Hays

Actress and MeToo movement stalwart Alyssa Milano will not speak at the next Women's March unless Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, March leaders, condemn the anti-Semitism of Nation of Islam's Minister Louis Farrakahn.

Mallory's relationship with the anti-Semitic Farrakhan is longstanding. CBS reported:

Tamika Mallory, one of the four main organizers of the Women's March, is a regular attendee at the Nation of Islam's annual "Saviour's Day" event. She has also repeatedly and lavishly praised Farrakhan on social media, and Farrakhan has returned the favor, complimenting her during his February Saviour's Day speech.

In that same speech, Farrakhan also said that Jews control the media, Hollywood, the FBI, most of Europe, and Mexico, according to the Anti-Defamation League. The "white people running Mexico are Mexican-Jews," Farrakhan told the crowd.

In a Wednesday post for Newsone, Mallory defended her association with Farrakhan. "I didn't expect my presence at Saviour's Day to lead anyone to question my beliefs, especially considering that I have been going to this event regularly for over 30 years," she wrote.

"I first went with my parents when I was just a little girl, and would begin attending on my own after my son's father was murdered nearly 17 years ago. In that most difficult period of my life, it was the women of the Nation of Islam who supported me and I have always held them close to my heart for that reason."

Also on Wednesday, Farrakhan tweeted, "The FBI has been the worst enemy of Black advancement. The Jews have control over those agencies of government."

According to the CBS story quoted above, Farrakhan has called Adolph Hitler "a great man."

Sarsour has raised eyebrows with her praise of Assata Shakur, the former JoAnn Chesimard, convicted of the first degree murder of a state trooper. She escaped from prison and is said to be enjoying life in Cuba.

Alyssa Milano was a vocal opponent of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his tumultuous confirmation hearings.

But kudos on rejecting anti-Semitic speech.

It is high time that Women's March supporters begin taking note of some of the chilling ideas and associations of some of the leaders.

The New York Post praised Milano in an editorial for taking this stand.
