If I can quote Will Rogers, “When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.”
After reading Carol Cure’s letter (“Farrakhan has done good things, too,” Jan. 15), I think she should have taken his advice.
Quoting Cure, “Mallory is apparently an admirer of Farrakhan because of his group’s history of providing services like child care centers in underserved black communities where these services are badly needed – not because of his unacceptable anti-Semitic statements.”
With that logic, I guess to Cure, Hitler was a great man and someone she could work with, as he built beautiful highways and gave full and much needed employment to the German people.
We know where that led to...
If that sound ridiculous, so does Cure’s rationalization of Mallory’s affection for Farrakhan.
Mallory last May praised the “bravery” of Hamas terrorists. Mallory even continued to defend Farrakhan, tweeting, “If your leader does not have the same enemies as Jesus, they may not be THE leader!”
No anti-Semitism there, Ms. Cure?
The Southern Poverty Law Center, the standard by which most leftists judge non-profit organizations, has also disassociated itself from the Women’s March.
Emily’s List and the Democratic National Committee have cut ties as well.
While other cities have either canceled their marches or have joined the alternative March On group, the Durango leaders continue to blindly follow their national group’s anti-Semitic chairpeople.
Quoting Will Rogers once again, “Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.”
Your march will never be truly inclusive until you publicly denounce Farrakhan by name. That’s good judgment.
