Amid increasing backlash against the Women’s March due to mounting evidence of anti-Semitism among its leadership, the group held its annual march on Saturday.
In a new video posted by Campus Reform, Cabot Phillips went to the D.C. march to see how supporters felt about the group’s co-president Tamika Mallory declaring infamous racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan the “GOAT” (“Greatest of All Time”) and continuing to defend her alliance with him and his notorious Nation of Islam.
Among the recent comments, Mallory has made about Farrakhan was her instantly viral interview with “The View” in which she refused to specifically condemn his anti-Semitic comments:

Mallory also told Elle Magazine in a recent interview that she doesn’t plan on parting ways with Farrakhan or his Nation of Islam. “To be effective when organizing people who have been discarded by society it does not make sense for me to throw away an organization — like the Nation of Islam — that has been very effective at reaching the hearts and minds of young black men to turning them away from violence,” she said.
With the controversy swirling and the group’s support crumbling, Phillips decided to ask Women’s March supporters — including one wearing a vagina costume — what they thought about Mallory’s support of Farrakhan. The results were mixed, according to The Daily Wire.
When asked if she’s concerned about the anti-Semitic comments coming from the group’s leaders, the first woman featured in the video said flatly, “No, not at all.”
But the second woman interviewed, who’s in a pink vagina costume and holding a sign about “maternal health,” has a far different response. “I’m concerned if there is anti-Semitic support at the march, yes,” she said. Asked if supporting people who call Jews “termites” is “concerning” to her, she stated emphatically, “Yes, absolutely.”
A woman wearing an “intersectional feminism” sign initially told Phillips that she’s not concerned at all about Mallory’s support for the notorious leader.
