The outspoken co-founder of the Women’s March organization found herself at the center of another controversy Tuesday; slamming the United States embassy celebration in Israel and referring to the terrorist tactic of using ‘human shields’ as ‘brave.’
Tamika Mallory made national headlines after she posted her stunning critique on social media this week, saying the United States “turns the blind eye” to “abuse everyday.”
It takes a special kind of evil to sacrifice your people for the cameras.

One user took exception to Mallory’s fierce rhetoric, saying “It takes a special kind of evil to sacrifice your people for the cameras.”
The Women’s March co-founder fired-back, saying “Or bravery! Depends on how you look at it!”

Mallory was thrust into the national spotlight earlier this year after her attendance at a Louis Farrakhan speech raised questions over her relationship with the religious leader; listening in silence for nearly 3 hours as Farrakhan railed against the “Satanic Jew.”
LIBERAL HATE: Women’s March Co-Chair REFUSES to Condemn Farrakhan’s ANTI-SEMITIC Rant
A co-chair of the far-left Women’s March organization found herself in hot-water this week, refusing to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s vicious anti-Semitic rant following revelations she was in attendance during his hateful tirade.
Co-chair Tamika D. Mallory deflected accusations she supported Farrakhan’s remarks on social media, claiming she was “not being clear” on her stance towards the religious leader; but flat-out refusing to distance herself from his remarks.
“Contrary to others, I listen. I have been in deep reflection and trying to be as thoughtful as possible. I want my own work to speak for itself but I will reiterate my commitment to building this movement. I won’t go back, I won’t redraw the lines of division. I want a new way,” she tweeted.
“This is a thread. It seems I am not being clear. I am and always have been against all forms of racism. I am committed to ending anti-black racism, antisemitism, homophobia & transphobia. This is why I helped create an intersectional movement to bring groups together,” she added.

Louis Farrakhan made national headlines last week over his address to a religious gathering on Saviours’ Day, saying “White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan has pulled the cover off the eyes of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”
LIBERAL RAGE: Women’s March Leader Says Anti-Semite FARRAKHAN Part of ‘COALITION’
The co-chair of the hyper-liberal Women’s March organization doubled-down on her relationship with prominent anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan Wednesday; defending her decision to attend his hate-filled rally and saying the Nation of Islam Leader was part of her “coalition.”
Activist Tamika Mallory found herself in hot-water this week after CNN’s Jake Tapper called-out the left-wing organizer over her role in attending the Nation of Islam’s Saviour’s Day rally; listening as Farrakhan railed against the “Satanic Jew” for nearly three hours.
Mallory wrote a wide-ranging explanation Wednesday night defending her decision, saying she had been attending the event for “over 30 years” and that “coalition work is not easy.”
“I proudly serve as a leader for one of the largest women’s advocacy organizations in the world. For that reason, my recent presence at the Nation of Islam’s Saviour’s Day convocation troubled some of the very people who I have fought for and worked alongside for most of my life,” writes Mallory.
“I am the same person today that I was before Saviour’s Day, which begs the question – why are my beliefs being questioned now?” she asks.
“Coalition work is not easy, and these women have operated from a place of authentic love for all people. My work requires an operational unity that is sometimes extremely painful and uncomfortable, even for me. But I push forward even when I am personally conflicted because our people are more important,” deflects the Women’s March co-chair.
