Why are Women's March leaders afraid of not dumping racist Farrakhan connection

Why is support for racism and anti-Semitism alive and well within the liberal leadership of the Women's March? They have black leaders and media pundits who protect and give cover to the venomous racist Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan who the group is tied to. Even while this group can manage to bring hundreds of thousands of protesters to Washington D.C. to attack President Donald Trump, they cannot seem to break ties with a hate mongering narcissist according to the New York Post. What are these liberals afraid of?

The hared filled pot has been boiling in the leadership circles of the Women's March since Nation of Islam leader Farrakhan gave one of his typical long speeches on Feb. 25 in Chicago. It was filled with his typical hate filled rants where he labeled Jewish people "Satanic." Of course, he did not stop there. He claimed, that Jewish people run the governments of the "US and Mexico and are pursuing a "pot plot" to spread marijuana use among black men in a scheme to feminize them."

His half-baked ludicrous claims would be dismissed as lunatic fringe, but for the support and protection he receives from liberal leaders and media pundits who provide him cover from serious scrutiny. For decades Farrakhan has had the luxury of creating race baiting chaos within urban communities without restraint. Meanwhile black liberal pundits like Juan Williams of Fox News "The Five" explains away the black racist comments as a necessary evil that does good work in the black community.

Not only is this type of liberal moral equivalency statement garbage that should stink to high heaven, but is it insulting to black people in urban communities. Imagine if conservatives or republicans or Christians were asked to justify former KKK leader David Duke's racist pronouncements by saying "He's really alright because he is good for his community."

Racism of the left is tolerated because hypocrisy is a practice art form that they utilize every single opportunity they get. For several decades this self-appointed leader of the black community has been allowed to languish in a lap of luxury and collecting millions while attacking whites, Jews and anyone he has in his crosshairs. This is intolerable.

You know things may be changing when the nation's leading organization that engages in the murdering of tens of millions of babies since 1973 says enough is enough.

Planned Parenthood, which is the movement's most prominent sponsor, deep-sixed Women's March Co-president Tamika Mallory as a keynote speaker at a major luncheon in April. For context, Mallory happened to be in the audience during Farrakhan's three-hour speech, when he gave her a shout-out. She even posted photos from the event later.

While liberals in the mainstream media and in the Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have maintained a hands-off approach to denouncing Farrakhan, Alyssa Klein, the group's social-media director quit the group. She said stressed, that Farrakhan was "a dangerous troll," and tweeted on March 5 that Women's March leaders are "turning a blind eye to the hate spoken about a group of people."

In addition, the New York Post reported, that Brooklyn activist Tali Goldsheft decried the continued support of Farrakhan by Women's March leaders and has begun a petition to demand Women's March leaders cut ties to "hate" and that the movement leadership be purged. She emphasized, "If . . . these Women's March leaders are attending his sermons and cheering him on, they should be called out and removed from their roles immediately."
