This is a feud about ego. I'm sure there are plenty of other women of color not associated with Farrakhan, anti-Semitism, or other hateful ideologies who can, & should, lead. Mallory, Sarsour & Perez wish to replace one hate with a different hate. The first Women's March was ignited by opposition to Trump & his policies that are against women's interests. That's plenty enough an organizing mission.

wow. this is the first time I've listened to your podcast. new to this whole genre. what a pity about the March. but here I am out in the hinterland wondering why the hell they just can't do it together. I guess my years as an Air Force brat/spouse gives me a very different view where it was more important to be one single voice... do the mission. I missed something here. what happened to MLK's words about your character... not your race, religion, etc. I took that to mean all of us. and what's with the anti-semitism?? What's wrong with people??

g I do what I can where I stand to make a better place and was fortunate enough to grow up in the military where as a child and later as an adult it was not tolerated. and changed with the times. those women lost sight of their purpose and let their differences destroy the mission. I guess they didn't want it badly enough to make it work. sad.

Amy Meighan I agree with your sentiment bringing up MLK there, but in order for just the content of your character to work, racism must _first_ be dismantled, which requires us on some level to understand the ways race affects people's lives, and which can be easier to organize, ironically, along the lines and categories prejudice creates. Unfortunately, you _can_ assume things about people's experiences and identities based on their race/etc, because we live in a world with prejudice, racism, etc.

I fail to see why this a main story. I do not mean to say that women movement is unimportant. However, there are much more important matters to discuss on current government shutdown. Disappointing approach.

This episode was incredible. If the goal of the podcast was to reveal how identity politics eats itself alive then that was a perfect report exposing the whole thing. I cant recommend you all listen to this strongly enough. Fortunately Republicans don't have this problem as we are not blinded by race.

g no we don't gwen. remember what I said about the military.. most of us are Republicans and at the least more conservative... that doesn't make us racist. give me an explicitly racial policy and explain how it's Republican and how it's racial.

wow ok all these women had to do was organize one march once a year that has no real agenda or voting power or employees or obligations, and they already messed that up because they're bickering over who's leader. leave that shit in 2018.

Again, WTF?! No story on multiple witnesses, docs, and internal emails proving Trump directed Cohen to lie to congress?? We have proof our president committed felonies and conspired with Russians to get elected, and instead of talking about these massive bombshells The Daily is doing episode after episode on the wall/border, and now a rift in the women's march?

Jeff Frost Suggest laying off the Buzzfeed a bit... fake news #2 with latest report even Mueller team disputed as inaccurate. Give Dan Bongino's podcast a listen for a taste of reality on bogus Russia investigation(s).
