Farrakhan Blames ‘Wicked Jews’ for Women’s March Controversy

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said on Feb.17 that “wicked Jews” were responsible for the controversy surrounding Women’s March, Inc.

During his keynote speech at the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day conference speech, Farrakhan said it was a “beautiful sight” to see the Women’s March come to fruition, especially since it was started by “a black woman,” an apparent reference to Women’s March, Inc. co-leader Tamika Mallory.

“Now 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 having the power to change the world.”

Farrakhan also gave shoutouts to Women’s March Inc. leaders Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez, all of whom have ties to Farrakhan, and asked that the audience applaud “my little sister Tamika.”

The Anti-Defamation League noted that Farrakhan’s speech was laced with anti-Semitic epithets throughout, including that Jews were responsible for the “enslavement” and “colonization” of blacks and that Jews “have exploited the American people through institutional usury and predatory lending practices.”
