Organizers of Women’s March Share Radical Past
Activists behind massive anti-Trump rally have history of extreme statements
On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of women will descend on Washington, D.C. for the anti-Trump “Women’s March on Washington.”
A closer look at the event and its organizers, however, reveals that the exercise should more accurately be called the “Radical Far-Leftists’ March on Washington.”
“Republicans hate Latinos.”
The march was recently mired in mild controversy when organizers discovered that a participating feminist organization, New Wave Feminists, was — gasp! — pro-life. The group was quickly banished from participating in the event.
Interestingly, however, the Women’s March has eagerly accepted the sponsorship of the Center for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and two of its local chapters. Muslims — and CAIR is no exception — are strictly opposed to abortion.
The honorary co-chairs of the event are a veritable who’s-who of some of the most prominent, radical leftists of the 20th century, and their own words suggest strongly that the Women’s March is not a march spurred by opposition to President-Elect Trump himself, but by the same opposition to traditional Western civilization and its values that has fueled the Left from its very inception.
Here is a sampling of their sentiments:
Angela Davis: "Had it not been for slavery, the death penalty would have likely been abolished in America. Slavery became a haven for the death penalty."
Angela Davis was a prominent leader in the Communist Party USA during the 1960s. In 1970, she purchased three firearms for 17-year old Jonathan Jackson, who then used them in the kidnapping and murder of a judge in an attempt to free three black prisoners accused of murdering a white prison guard. Davis is, along with Assata Shakur, one of the spiritual godmothers of modern violent black separatism as embodied in the Black Lives Matter movement.
Dolores Huerta: "Republicans hate Latinos."
Radical socialist Dolores Huerta came to prominence organizing the United Farm Workers with Cesar Chavez. In 1973, Huerta took part in the Ring Around Congress protest organized by the communist-affiliated Women Strike for Peace group. Years later, Huerta would become an eager cheerleader for now-deceased Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, whose policies have utterly destroyed the Venezuelan economy.
Gloria Steinem: "The most dangerous situation for a woman is not an unknown man in the street, or even the enemy in wartime, but a husband or lover in the isolation of their own home."
Pioneer of the "Women's liberation" movement and unrepentant misandrist, Steinem was arguably one of the most anti-family activists of the 20th century, whose efforts undoubtedly influenced countless numbers women to abandon their families or forego having them entirely, commit to a lifetime of promiscuity, and end the lives of their own unborn children.
Harry Belafonte: "Artists are the gatekeepers of truth. We are civilization's anchor. We are the compass for humanity's conscience."
"King of Calypso" Harry Belafonte was not only involved in the civil rights movement from its beginning but also a close confidant of Martin Luther King Jr. Since then, however, Belafonte seems to have completely lost the plot — not least for suggesting that people like Kanye West, Beyoncé, and Adam Levine are compasses for humanity's conscience.
In 2005, Belafonte — who apparently believes a career of crooning "daylight come and me wan go home" makes him an anchor of civilization — called Colin Powell a house slave. He also called both Powell and Condoleezza Rice "black tyrants," and compared them to Jews working for Nazis. "Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich," Belafonte said.
It's not just the honorary co-chairs of the march who are zealous radicals either:
Linda Sarsour: "[Islamophobia] has happened throughout the history of our country; our country was based on, you know, genocide on native Americans, based on slavery, racial profiling has existed for centuries in this community."
Sarsour, one of the march's national co-chairs, rose to prominence protesting the NYPD's surveillance of Muslims, and has made a career on the Left of pretending that law enforcement suspicion of Muslims is the result of bigotry and "Islamophobia," not — say — the numerous Islamic terror attacks which occur with increasing frequency. Sarsour's brother was reportedly sentenced to 12 years in prison by Israel for involvement with the terrorist group Hamas.
