What's the Difference? Women's March Cut Ties Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory in Favor of More Far-Left Activists

Na na na na. Na na na na. Hey, hey, hey! Goodbye!

Despite the activism of the far-left Women’s March being as insane and misinformed as ever, they made a decent decision recently by parting ways with three of its activist leaders — Linda Sarsour, Bob Bland and Tamika Mallory.

After many months of being accused of anti-Semitism, with calls for their removal even coming from the founder of the Women’s March Teresa Shook, the three activists seem to have resigned in July, according to the Washington Post.

The Washington Post reported:

Co-Chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour stepped down from the board July 15, though the organization has been slow to announce their departures. The Women’s March website continued to host their photos and titles as co-chairs through this week, when the group announced the board turnover.

A diverse cast of 16 new board members that includes three Jewish women, a transgender woman, a former legislator, two religious leaders and a member of the Oglala tribe of the Lakota nation will inherit an organization recovering from a failed attempt to trademark the Women’s March name and fractured relationships with local activist groups and the Jewish community.

Even though the Women’s March continues to accuse everyone else for every single problem they face on Twitter, Sarsour and Mallory in particular have repeatedly made headlines for controversial things they’ve said.

Depending on the day, you could see stories of Sarsour blaming her own shortcomings, as well as the shortcomings of those she supported, on racism, among other excuses. Sarsour has also been accused of being pro-Sharia Law, as well as anti-Semitic.

Mallory has been accused of anti-Semitism herself, as she refused to acknowledge that Israel has the right to exist back in January.

As noted above, the new cast of characters that are seemingly going to be leading the way for the Women’s March going forward include multiple questionable activists.

For example, one of the new board members is Zahra Billoo. Billoo is reportedly a “civil rights attorney and executive director of the San Francisco Bay area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR has been previously linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

Another new board member for the Women’s March will be Kelley Robinson, the national organizing director for Planned Parenthood. The addition of Robinson shouldn't come as a surprise since the first Women's March, which yours truly attended, was just a giant Planned Parenthood rally. But, it wouldn’t be the Women’s March if they didn’t automatically assume that all women are pro-abortion.

The rest of the list of new board members can be found here.

“I am grateful to the women who stepped up to shepherd the Women’s March,” Sarsour told WaPo via text message. “This is what women supporting women looks like.”

I’ll wager there’s more than one woman who would disagree with Sarsour’s sentiment.
