The annual Chicago Women’s March scheduled for January 2019 in Grant Park, has been cancelled by the organizers, on account of high costs, a shortage of volunteers, and the fact that they’d already had a women’s march in Grant Park last October.

But according to Chicago local media, the march was nixed over a split in the national Women’s March leadership, over widespread accusations that group members have drifted anti-Semitic and prefer boosting their ties to the misogynistic, anti-White and anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan over their ties with civilized society.

Tablet magazine last week reported that Women’s March co-chairs Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez, at a November 2016 meeting, argued that Jewish people bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people, and that Jews had been leaders of the American slave trade—both of which are myths popularized by a book titled The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, published by Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam.

African American scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. called the book “the bible of the new anti-Semitism.”

According to WNYC, as many as half of the board of the Women’s March in February 2018 attended a Louis Farrakhan “virulently anti-Semitic and bigoted speech in Chicago.”

Farrakhan mentioned Tamika Mallory from the podium, and the co-president of the Women’s March organization posted a video of the event on Instagram.

“The powerful Jews are my enemy,” Farrakhan declared in his three-hour speech before, among others, the Women’s March leaders. He said Jews are responsible for “all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out, turning men into women and women into men.” He also said “the white folks are going down and Satan is going down, and Farrakhan…has pulled the cover off the eyes of the Satanic Jew, and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Much applause ensued.

The most blood curdling note in that speech, especially for the history buffs among us, was Farrakhan’s statement: “I know all of you got Jewish friends. I got some too. But when you know them and you’re not afraid to say who they really are, they move to destroy you.”

SS Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler In 1943 spoke openly in a closed SS forum about the extermination of the Jewish people, and said, in a style so freakishly reminiscent of Farrakhan’s: “…each one has his decent Jew. They say: all the others are swine, but here is a first-class Jew.” But if all German Jews were not destroyed, Himmler continued, “we would probably be at the same stage as 1916-17, if the Jews still resided in the body of the German people.”

And so, finally, it can be said that Louis Farrakhan is that Illinois Nazi from that immortal line spoken by John Belushi in his role as Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers: “I hate Illinois Nazis!”
