    To the shock of no one, Planned Parenthood has decided to continue supporting the Women's March despite the overwhelming evidence that leaders Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory are anti-Semitic and worship Louis Farrakhan. After all, Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood as a way to cleanse the world of undesirables. However, if you look closely at the statement, you'll find that Planned Parenthood sounds confused by trying to deflect the attention away from the Women's March and place it on President Donald Trump's administration.

    We've been covering the Women's March here at LI since its inception, including its January 2017 exclusion of pro-life feminists, and have been closely following revelations of the group's rampant anti-Semitism.  From closed chapters to cancelled marches and lost sponsors, the Women's March is flailing due to its leadership's associations with and defense of vile anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. It seems that anti-Semitism is not the group's only problem: the California Women's March scheduled for next month has been cancelled because leadership fears it will be "too white."

    Ever since Tablet magazine published its investigation into the racism and anti-Semitism views of the Women's March leaders the organization has bled support and people. First the Washington state chapter closed. The New York Times finally acknowledged that leaders Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory harbor hatred toward Jews. Then the Chicago chapter announced it will not have a march in January. Another blow came today as The National Organization for Women (NOW) announced it will no longer be a donor to the Women's March until it resolves the questions surrounding its leadership.

    The organizers of the Women's March in Chicago have canceled the 2019 march due to the anti-Semitic views of Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory at the national level. The ties to Nation of Islam and hatred of Jews by the leaders is nothing new to us at LI, but since Tablet magazine's investigation, the fallout continues and no one can ignore the truth anymore.

    Very few publications have consistently brought to light the anti-Semitism and racism showcased by the leaders of the Women's March. Legal Insurrection is one of them. But when Tablet magazine published an investigation into the behaviors by the leaders, especially Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, other publications finally spoke up about it. The New York Times did this on Sunday, but instead of stating that the leaders have anti-Semitic views, the left-wing Bible framed it as accusations.

    The Nation of Islam, led by rabid anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, is a hate group. Farrakhan constantly spits out hate towards whites and Jews. The man referred to Jews as termites and hailed Hitler as a great man. He authored the book The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews where he accused Jews of spreading the slavery trade and controlling the global economy. Farrakhan has even said he thinks the Jews masterminded 9/11. But for some reason the government has been giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to Farrakhan's hate group since 2008 in order teach religious classes to federal prisoners.

    Will corporations never learn that knee-jerk reactions to online outrage are almost always factually vapid? Apparently not. Fast food chain Chipotle recently fired a manager after a viral video showed her refusing service to a group of young, black men. She also suggested the group of men did not have money to pay for their food, saying the last several times they frequented the restaurant, they didn't have money to pay. "You gotta pay because you’ve never had money when you come in here. We're not gonna make food unless you guys actually have money," she said.

    Conservative commentator Candace Owens, a black woman, wanted to make a point on Twitter and boy did she ever. The New York Times new editorial board member Sarah Jeong has dominated the news cycle these past few days due to her old racist tweets against white people. The left has defended her because, after all, white people cannot experience racism. Duh. Owens decided to expose the double standard by changing Jeong's tweets. Instead of white, she used Jewish and black. Twitter immediately suspended her account for 12 hours.

    The left is ticked off at New York Magazine columnist Andrew Sullivan and they won't stop until they get blood! He penned an article that blasted The New York Times for keeping Sarah Jeong despite her history of tweeting out racist tweets against white people. How DARE he think racism is racism! In his article he stated that he doesn't think the publication should fire her.

    Remember back in February 2018 when The New York Times hired Quinn Norton, but quickly let her go after people exposed old tweets that included slurs against gay people and retweets with racist terms? I guess only those slurs were bad because The New York Times editorial board hired Sarah Jeong who has a history of racist tweets against white people. The newspaper even sent out a memo that defends its hiring of Jeong!

    Chief Justice Roberts famously wrote that “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.” That simple and correct formulation exposes how racial discrimination in the name of anti-racial discrimination perpetuates the problem. It's a problem inherent in affirmative action based on race, which, whatever the goals, is a form of racial discrimination.

    South Carolina NAACP President Rev. Jerrod Moultrie made up one heckuva tall tale in April alleging he was racially profiled and harassed during a routine traffic stop. In a since-deleted Facebook post, Moultrie wrote about his encounter making himself out to be a tough guy and victim of a mean and racist cop who was convinced Moultrie had drugs.
