Women’s March Veers Further Left with Anti-Semitic Manifesto

Instead of addressing some of its followers’ concerns about not representing all women, the Women’s March has now officially embraced anti-Semitism with a 71-page “Women’s Agenda” ascribing to the Boycott-Divestment-Sanction movement to fiscally punish Israel. Among its pages, the “Agenda” calls for blacklisting lawmakers who condemn BDS as well as specifically targets anti-BDS legislation as “[o]ne of the biggest threats to speech today.” “Whether it’s the attempts to create federal or state laws banning political boycotts or criticism of Israel (including the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions tactic), targeting environmental protest or preventing students and faculty on college campuses from expressing their views or engaging in peaceable assembly, the silencing of one side of the debate is precisely what our First Amendment protects against.” Read more…

The Women’s March openly embraced the anti-Semitism it has been repeatedly accused of Saturday, with leaders openly embracing the Boycott-Divestment-Sanction movement from the Women’s March podium, and issuing a new manifesto, released to coincide with the Washington, D.C., signature event, excoriating Congress and state legislators for condemning the BDS movement.

The 71-page “Women’s Agenda,” released Saturday, includes specific references to the BDS movement, and takes a stand against anti-BDS bills, The Washington Times reports.

The “Agenda” called the anti-BDS bills, which seek to prohibit government agencies from contracting with any entity that openly embraces the BDS movement or deliberately boycotts the State of Israel, “[o]ne of the biggest threats to speech today.”
