The anti-Trump Women’s March that hit the streets the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration is now gearing up for a repeat event on January 19 in Washington, DC, but some of its founders are facing charges from former fellow activists that the left-wing group is promoting the bigotry and corruption it claims to oppose. Teresa Shook, credited as one of the women who launched the march on social media, spearheaded the criticism last month when she called on the women now running the “movement” to step down.Those women include Women’s March National co-chairwomen Carmen Perez, Bob Bland, Tamika D. Mallory, and Linda Sarsour, who is a Palestinian American known for her anti-Israel stance. The HuffPost reported in November: In a Facebook post published Monday afternoon, Shook wrote that the four public faces of the Women’s March should resign because they have strayed from the group’s goals. “I have waited, hoping they would right … [Read more...] about Women’s March Leaders Face Anti-Semitic, Corruption Charges Ahead of Second Anti-Trump Event

Isaac Stanley-Becker, The Washington Post Published 4:24 am PST, Wednesday, December 12, 2018 Six words turned Marc Lamont Hill into a symbol of the divisive effort to set parameters on acceptable speech about the state of Israel and the rights of Palestinians. In an address last month at the United Nations, Hill called for a "free Palestine from the river to the sea," repeating a phrase - "from the river to the sea" - that has been used by terror groups intent on the destruction of Israel. Two institutions reacted differently to the use of these six words by the academic, activist and pundit. The split reveals how the disagreement over anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism is intensifying on college campuses, at media organizations and within political parties. CNN, where Hill had been a contributor, cut ties with the 39-year-old almost immediately, as conservatives and hard-line advocates of Israel cried foul, and other groups, such as the Anti-Defamation League, also … [Read more...] about CNN fired him for speech some deemed anti-Semitic.
