According to an article published on numerous news sites, including CNN, the founder of the Woman’s March, Teresa Shook, is asking certain board members to step aside for their radical views not consistent with the movement.

Ms. Shook’s Facebook page featured the following comments:

“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

One of the more vocal and prominent radical members of the movement, Linda Sarsour, is a strong proponent of Sharia Law. 

In this controversial article from the Washington Post, Sarsour called on all Muslims not to assimilate into our culture, but to declare a “Jihad” against the Trump administration.

It is quite obvious, at least to us at the Post, that the right decision was made by Ms. Shook regarding this one particular board member.

That decision is often called a “no-brainer.”

Sadly, this seems to be a new precedent set for the Progressive/Socialist/Democratic Party. If things continue to move in this direction, the United States may once again become a part of the United Kingdom.
