Jewish Democrats Praise DNC Decision to Cut Ties With Women’s March Over Antisemitism

The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) welcomed the news on Tuesday that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had chosen to disassociate itself from the national Women’s March following a series of antisemitism scandals.

Halie Soifer — the JDCA’s executive director — said in a statement, “JDCA supports the objectives of the Women’s March and stands with sister marches across the country this weekend. At the same time, we welcome the DNC, SPLC, Emily’s List, and other organizations’ decision to not sponsor and participate in the Women’s March and take a principled stand against anti-Semitism.”

The DNC’s move came shortly after leading progressive groups the Southern Poverty Law Center and Emily’s List disassociated from the march as well, marking a major exodus by prominent left-wing groups.

Controversy has swirled around the Women’s March for months after connections were revealed between its leaders — particularly Tamika Mallory — and antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who recently referred to Jews as termites. Mallory appeared at an event with Farrakhan, was photographed with him, and dubbed him the “GOAT” or “Greatest of All Time” on social media.
