In yet another piece of evidence for the idea that the brand of intersectionality pushed by the Women’s March excludes Jews, co-president Tamika Mallory called for a national boycott against Starbucks thanks to the company’s relationship with . . . the Anti-Defamation League. The ADL is one of the more left-leaning organizations in America, but Mallory hates them because they had the temerity to call out her association with anti-Semite extraordinaire Louis Farrakhan.
On Tuesday, as reported by The Daily Caller, she issued a statement explaining, “So you are aware, Starbucks was on a decent track until they enlisted the Anti-Defamation League to build their anti-bias training. The ADL is CONSTANTLY attacking black and brown people. This is a sign that they are tone deaf and not committed to addressing the concerns of black folks. Be clear what’s happening here!”
Naturally, Mallory wanted the ADL replaced with Jews for Racial Economic Justice, Bend The Arc: Jewish Action, and Jewish Voice For Peace. All three are even further left than the ADL.
Once again, the leadership of the Women’s March apparently has nothing to say about this sort of blatant bigotry against Jews. And that’s what this is about: the ADL is run by Jonathan Greenblatt, an Obama acolyte, and is certainly not a racist group. Mallory has no evidence to suggest that it is racist. She just doesn’t like that the ADL pointed out her association with Farrakhan, and so she’s doubling down on her foolishness by going after those who targeted her.
