Enough is Enough: Alyssa Milano Drops Support for Women's March

Actress and feminist icon Alyssa Milano, one of the #MeToo movement leaders, made it clear recently that she has had enough. ďAny time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. Iím disappointed in the leadership of the Womenís March that they havenít done it adequately,Ē Milano said In an interview with The Advocate when she was asked about the march leaderís relationship to the Nation of Islamís Louis Farrakhan. Milano said she would decline to attend the next Womenís March.

Milano has had enough. I have had enough. We all should have had enough. The Womenís March has consistently, repeatedly failed to address ingrained institutional anti-semitism. It must be confronted before the next March in January. We will not wait any longer. Our resistance to hatred will only grow.

Linda, Tamika, Carmen, Bob. Let me repeat it back to you. There needs to be accountability and an honest reckoning. You have betrayed American Jewish Women. You have betrayed gay women. You have betrayed Trans Women. You have just lost a powerful partner. She has seen the way you tolerate hatred and decided to take off her sneakers and stay home. You will lose more. Hate has already seeped into the cracks and corners. It is eating at the foundation and eventually, it will flood your house or bring the whole thing down. It will break everything you have built and leave you standing in the rubble.

I don't want to be associated with anyone who can't condemn louis farrakhan. I also will not march this year until the organization cleans up the crap.

3. ME TOO, Ms Milano. Me Too

"You have betrayed American Jewish Women.
You have betrayed gay women.
You have betrayed Trans Women.
You have just lost a powerful partner.
She has seen the way you tolerate hatred and decided to take off her sneakers and stay home.

You will lose more.
Hate has already seeped into the cracks and corners.
It is eating at the foundation and eventually, it will flood your house or bring the whole thing down.
It will break everything you have built and leave you standing in the rubble
."


Their public alliance with Nation of Islamís Louis Farrakhan has made a blatant mockery of all they claimed the #MeToo Movement supposedly stood for.

About time they were told so to their lying faces.

Thank you Alyssa Milano.
THANK YOU!

Linda, Tamika, Carmen, Bob ~We stand with Ms Milano for all women #NotYou

4. I did the women's march in SPITE of the organizers.

At first I didn't realize their bias, until I messaged them on Facebook asking them to include Hillary on their list of significant women and they responded with parking information the first time and did not respond at all the second time. Then they held an event in Detroit and decided to invite Bernie Sanders to speak and again excluded HRC supporters. I won't be associated with them.

8. I made my position clear

marching with the Zioness movement. But I've been speaking out against that twit sansaur since I read up about her. LONG before last year's march.

19. I absolutely LOATHE Sarsour as well

Total fraud and opportunist. However, I think the Women's March is bigger than her, and frankly most of the organizers.

20. If we don't call out hate mongers on the left

we have zero credibility in calling them out on the right and how "big" she is isn't the issue.

5. Milano thinks the Women's March doesn't go far enough, would be more appropriate.

I wouldn't be so hasty to throw the baby out with the bath water. The women's march is still a powerful symbolic movement. If people think they can do better, start your own protest march. Until then, I'll be protesting the true focus of my ire, the GOP and the complicit corruption and anti-American ideals.

9. NOTHING about the Women's March

should be associated with that putrid farrakhan. I mean, she calls him a mentor. She sullies the entire movement.

10. Oh please

If right wingers were marching about anything and we found out the organizers were part of the proud boys or something, we would be howling from the rooftops. I put farrakhan in the same basket of deplorables I put the proud boys in.

13. This isn't new

The twit has nothing to say other than farrakhan is her mentor. It's time for liberals to clean up our own house when it comes to repulsive bigots.

such an old story now?

18. I posted the OP

and it's in General Discussion not in LBN. It's also NEW that Alyssa Milano has spoken out about it. It's sansour's anti semitism that isn't new to anyone paying attention.

16. Aren't there different leaders in different cities?

Anyway, Milano's mistakes aside, the participation of most marchers didn't have a thing to do with them.

Drop the bigots, keep the marches. Any sign of reorganizing yet?

21. Absolutely keep the marches

But we lose credibility if we don't call out the hatemongers on our side of the aisle.

22. Well, way too late for those close to avoid that,

but not too late to get up, spray for fleas and march on. The Women's March immediately became far, far bigger than them.

23. They MUST be called out

and can NEVER be called leaders of the movement without calling out their sleazy ties. NEVER. And THEN we march.
