The Women’s March appears to be marching down the tubes.
One more step downward occurred in an interview set to air Friday night, in which March leader Tamika Mallory refused to say the nation of Israel has any right to exist.
Yes — you read that correctly: At a time when the left-wing organization’s been abandoned in droves — including by the Democratic National Committee — amid severely damaging allegations of anti-Semitism, Tamika thought it’d be a good idea to deny the Jewish homeland’s planetary legitimacy.
On PBS’s Firing Line with Margaret Hoover, the admirer of Louis Farrakhan had this to say:
“The Palestinians are native to the land, you know. They were there for a very long time, and so they’re native to the land.”
That’s not what “native” means, but moving on…
The host asked, “Do you feel that the Jewish people are native as well?”
Cue the misstep:
“I mean, I know, I understand the history, that, you know, that there are people who have a number of sort of ideologies around why the Jewish people feel this should be their land. I’m not Jewish. So, for me to speak to that is not fair.”
Perhaps she wasn’t expecting a follow-up. If so, Margaret thwarted expectations:
“If you’re willing to say that the Palestinians are native but not the Jews are native. I mean you’re not Palestinian either.”
Here we go:
“Because I’m speaking of the people who we know are being brutally oppressed in this moment. That’s just the reality.”
“Is it your view that Israel has a right to exist as a nation?” Hoover pressed.
And then this:
TAMIKA: I have said many times that I feel everyone has a right to exist. I feel everyone has a right to exist. I just don’t feel that anyone has a right to exist at the disposal of another group.
MARGARET: In your view, does that include Israelis in Israel?
TAMIKA: I believe that all people have the right to exist. And that Palestinians are also suffering with a great crisis. And that there are other Jewish scholars who will sit here and say the same.
She didn’t seem happy. So:
“I’m done talking about this. You can move on.”

Margaret took to Twitter with the obvious:
If you are vigorously defending allegations of anti-semitism, seems like affirming Israel’s right to exist would be a no-brainer. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened.

As reported by The Daily Wire, Tamika guested on The View Monday, where she defended her endorsement of Farrakhan thusly:
“I didn’t call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric, I called him the greatest of all time because of what he’s done in black communities.”
What “he’s done in black communities,” in part, is teach them this, as I previously explained:
A sinister being, known as the Big Head Scientist, took the world’s prisoners and employed them in a scheme to create pure evil: white people.
The large-noggin’d, nefarious nuisance restricted mating among the world’s worst, such that breeding produced lighter and lighter skin. And, since purity was inherent to the darkness of skin, the lighter the shade, the crappier the creatures. On the way to total absence of goodness — otherwise known as total absence of blackness, otherwise known as Caucasian — all the world’s races were created, the lighter indicating the more treacherous.
That’s you, if you’re not black. That’s everyone, if they’re not black.
