Democrats actually do right with the Women’s March

Here’s a baby cheer for the Democratic National Committee, which just cut its ties to the Women’s March.

We would’ve gladly given the DNC three hearty hurrahs, but it offered no explanation for the move. That is, it declined to call out the anti-Semitism of the group’s leaders, despite evidence that it’s longstanding.

The DNC decision comes days before the Jan. 19 march, and just 24 hours after March co-presidents Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland appeared on “The View” — where they refused to condemn the egregious anti-Semitism of Louis Farrakhan, despite being hit hard on the issue by co-host Meghan McCain.

The problem, of course, is that March leaders admire Farrakhan: Mallory has gone so far as to call him “the GOAT,” the greatest of all time.

She insists she was just describing what he’s done in black communities, as if his long, hateful record of anti-Jewish (and anti-gay) rhetoric doesn’t matter.

DNC officials won’t comment on their exit from the list of 2019 Women’s March sponsors, other than insisting the party still “stands in solidarity with all those fighting for women’s rights.”

Too bad they’re not willing to take a clear stand against anti-Semitism.
