Farrakhan: The ‘Wicked Jews’ use me to attack women’s movement, march leaders
Chicago, IL – Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Sunday blamed “wicked Jews” for trying to use him to criticize Women’s March leadership and “break up the women’s movement.”
Farrakhan, who has a long history of antisemitism and ties with Women’s March organizers Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and Carmen Perez, spoke at his movement’s Saviours’ Day conference in Chicago. He accused Jews of trying to put a wedge between him and some of the Women’s March organizers because of their praise and association with him.
“The most beautiful sight that I could lay eyes on [was] when I saw, the day after Trump was elected, women from all over the world were standing in solidarity, and a black woman is the initiator of it,” said Farrakhan, referring to Mallory.
“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” Farrakhan said. “It ain’t about Farrakhan; it’s about women all over the world [who] have the power to change the world.”
