It’s been a rough week for the Women’s March after insider information revealed that the group was partially formed with anti-semitic intent.
Now, we didn’t need this report to go viral to understand that the Women’s March is bigoted by design. While the movement markets itself as a way to give a voice to women who feel disenfranchised in a supposedly patriarchal society, the coalition includes some very controversial figures such as founder Linda Sarsour, who has defended anti-semitic black nationalist Louis Farrakhan.
According to the new reports, anti-Jewish sentiment was essential to the movement’s foundation. Apparently, Sarsour and other formative members made it clear in the initial meetings that Jews need to share responsibility with other white people for supposedly repressing women and people of color.
This right here demonstrates the biggest problem with intersectional identity politics. Group identity, not the soundness of your arguments, is the basis by which people like this judge others. If you belong to the right group, say, some one who is black, Muslim, transgender, or whatever else, your opinion carries extra weight. If you belong to the wrong group, say — a heterosexual white male, or a Jew apparently, your opinion can be readily discarded.
