Prominent Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory defended her previous relationship with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan Monday; doubling-down on prior comments that labeled the notorious anti-Semite the “Greatest of all time.”
“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,” said Mallory on The View.

FARRAKHAN BLUES: Top DEMS UNDER FIRE Over History with Prominent ANTI-SEMITE
Ranking Democrats in the House of Representatives and liberal activists found themselves in hot-water this week; flat-out refusing to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan after his three-hour long rant against the “Satanic Jew.”
Members of the Republican Jewish Coalition called on seven members of the Congressional Black Caucus to resign Tuesday after the legislator’s connections to the prominent anti-Semite became more evident.
“There’s clearly a double standard,” said the group’s leader. “No, there’s a double double-standard. Not only do you get the progressive left wing and more centrist Democrats who aren’t shy about criticizing President Trump or branding the Republican Party as white nationalists or neo-Nazis, but when it comes to condemning Louis Farrakhan, they’re silent.”
The announcement comes as Rep. James Clyburn -the third highest ranking Democrat in the House- was under fire for “sharing a stage” with the Nation of Islam leader back in 2011.
Left-wing legislators aren’t alone. The Women’s March organization found itself in the spotlight after one of its co-chairs attended Farrakhan’s event, sitting silently as he screamed “the Jews are my enemy.”
“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,” wrote the co-chair after refusing to condemn Farrakhan’s remarks.
HATE SPEECH: Farrakhan Says Iranian Sanctions Will Result in the ‘Death’ of America
Nation of Islam leader and vicious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan escalated his war-of-words with the White House this week; warning President Trump that an armed conflict with Iran would bring about the total destruction of the United States.
The 85-year-old leader was speaking with journalists when he was asked to comment on recently released footage that showed Farrakhan leading a ‘Death to Israel, Death to America’ chant during his visit to Iran.
“The war will trigger another kind of war which will bring China, Russia, all of the nations into a war,” Farrakhan said. “The war will end America as you know it.”
“It is your policies that are eroding trust for you in the world, favor for you in the world, and now you are pulling apart, confused,” he added. “If you do this, you will bring about — not the Iranian chant — you will bring about the death of the greatest nation that has been on this Earth in the last 6,000 years.”
