DAILYKENN.com -- Look at the photograph. Are the clinched fists Hitler salutes? Or Stalin salutes? Does it matter?
Stalin, after all, is responsible for the slaughter of 20 to 25-million people.
Do women support the slaughter of millions? Are women comfortable with the Hitler salute? The Stalin salute?
Are women comfortable with Linda Sarsour wearing a hood and robe?
Are women comfortable with racism? Or do they find Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam reprehensible?
Or — to use the leftist argument — don't they know this is 2018?

The Women’s March is losing staffers and supporters in reaction to an ongoing anti-Semitism controversy that has seen the group’s co-founders refuse to condemn Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan.
Former Women’s March social media director Alyssa Klein quit last week, some regional branches have condemned leaders’ refusal to speak out against Farrakhan, and other activists are cutting ties with the group, the New York Post reports. After co-founder Tamika Mallory refused to denounce Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic comments at his annual Saviours’ Day address, Klein tweeted the group was "turning a blind eye" to hatred.
"I respect loyalty," she said. "I do not respect unquestioning loyalty. Especially if it means attacking those who are asking legitimate questions. And especially if it means turning a blind eye to the hate spoken about a group of people."
Farrakhan added to his long history of anti-Semitic pronouncements when he attacked "that Satanic Jew" and said Jews are "the mother and father of apartheid" in his February speech. Mallory was in attendance and expressed support for Farrakhan on Twitter, and when she received backlash, other Women’s March leaders defended her.
Mallory is not the only Women’s March linked to Farrakhan. Linda Sarsour spoke at a Nation of Islam event in 2015, and co-founder Carmen Perez didn’t denounce him, saying he is not "perfect."
The official response by the national Women’s March organization was a tepid statement that only criticized specific comments from Farrakhan, which disappointed many of the group’s supporters.
"You feel stabbed in the back. It feels like someone you trust just punched you in the gut … I’m really wounded," former Women’s March supporter Nisi Jacobs told the Post.
Jacobs helped create a Change.org petition to remove the Women’s March leadership, and he has since started a group called Women’s March for All as an alternative.
