Women’s March event cancelled because organizers concerned of event being “overwhelmingly white”

This is what happens when identity politics drives your agenda.

From Fox News: Organizers of a Women’s March rally slated for Northern California next month have canceled the event, saying they were concerned that participants would have been “overwhelmingly white.”

In a news release, organizers for the march in Eureka – about 270 miles north of San Francisco – said Friday the “decision was made after many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march.”

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the news release continued.

According to Census Bureau data from July, Humboldt County, where Eureka is the county seat, is 74 percent non-Hispanic white.

“I was appalled to be honest,” Amy Sawyer Long told the Washington Times. “I understand wanting a diverse group. However, we live in a predominantly white area … not to mention how is it beneficial to cancel? No matter the race people still want their voices heard.”

The rally, which had been planned for Jan. 19, would have commemorated the third anniversary of the original Women’s March, which was held Jan. 21, 2017, the day after President Trump took office. The group said it is exploring shifting the rally to March to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The Women’s March movement has been marred by complaints from some black and Latina women, who’ve raised concerns that their input is often disregarded or overlooked, the New York Times reported.

The cancellation of the march in California follows a previous one in Chicago.

Women’s March organizers in that city cited high costs and limited volunteer hours as reasons for nixing the annual rally, the Chicago Tribune reported. “There’s no march, there’s no rally,” said Sara Kurensky, Women’s March Chicago board member. “We’re going to provide ways for people to organize and take action in their local communities.”

Meanwhile, the Women’s March national leadership has faced accusations of anti-Semitism because of ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. In a speech in February, Farrakhan praised a Women’s March co-President Tamika Mallory and declared “the powerful Jews are my enemy.”

Leaders of Women’s March Inc. have come under scrutiny for not condemning Farrakhan’s rhetoric fast enough. The Nation of Islam is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Earlier this month, a Washington state chapter of the Women’s March disbanded in protest because of the national group’s links to anti-Semitism.

Marches and rallies are still planned for Jan. 19 in Washington, D.C., and dozens of other cities nationwide and internationally.

To be consistent, 90% of the Democrats in Congress should resign en masse, especially new-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, because they’re all white.

They didn’t cancel it because everyone was white, they cancelled it because everyone is sick of these feminazzi retards and they didn’t have the numbers of people marching in these stupid knob femi pro abortion faggo marches…The too many white people was just an excuse to cancel, the truth is that people are sick of these Soros funded Feminazi tards

Forget about the whites, the anti semitism, they cancelled because the movement lost its momentum, and “fanatics” lost their energy, millenniums don’t know any better.

Looking at the pic of “nasty woman”…Many people are now saying that it was a huge mistake to allow women to vote…And with the feminazi movement that has destroyed the traditional family…me thinks the people saying giving women the vote was a total disaster for humanity are right!

they don’t even know what they want from day to day. all they know is that they hate President Trump. a bunch of lemmings chasing the next shiny thing, the next ‘ah ha. we finally got Trump’. never mind 70 years of failed liberial social experimentation. never mind the best economy and lowest unemployment in years. all that matters is that we get rid of Trump. he’s awful. the national news told me so. (sarc)

Right. They probably canceled not because it’d be conspicuously suburban white women, but because hundreds of minority drag queens and Norman Bates-like “trans women” from Northern California are signing up. Or maybe the Women’s March leaders realize that the sort of goateed emasculattos who march with them prove the point that, with unmerited preferment through affirmative action already in the bag, the feminist movement becomes little more than emasculation of European white men as a means of leveling the field for the feminist leaders’ emasculated kinfolk, who conspicuously take a back seat to their women at these things. What’s pathetic… Read more »

This reminded me of an article I read last week about the EU having commissioned a study on crime and rejecting it because the findings showed that 4 out of 5 criminals were black. Their “study” simply didn’t comport with their fantasy.

OH PRAISE GOD!!! I am sick to death of those cringe-inducing pink uterus hats…..although, I agreed with Madonna’s b/c we all know that her uterus must be black, like her soul. We’ve all seen more uteruses hanging out there in the open air than the number of prolapsed ones EVER aired on the “Amazing Dr. Pol” show. Those women’s marches make me just want to grease up my hands and stuff those uteruses back into where they were intended to reside. EEEUW! Who was the dim-bulb who came up with this mascot in the first place, and who were the… Read more »
