The Women’s March, a prominent left-wing organization plagued with ties to anti-Semites, is demanding the resignation of the Supreme Court’s highest-ranking Jew.
The group’s executive director, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, released a statement Monday urging Justice Stephen Breyer to relinquish his seat on the High Court before the midterm elections in 2022. “The time has come for Justice Breyer to retire and pass on the mantle of protecting women’s rights,” said O’Leary Carmona. “The stakes are too high to wait a moment more.”
A number of controversial liberal activists have coalesced behind a “Retire Breyer” campaign in an effort to end the prominent Jew’s career. Among them is Brian Fallon, the executive director of Demand Justice, a dark money group that advocates radical reforms such as court packing. “The longer that goes by without word from Breyer that he intends to step down at the end of this term, the more reckless it is,” Fallon told Politico last week.
The involvement of the Women’s March adds an extra layer of controversy to the campaign to oust Breyer, whose replacement almost certainly would not be a fellow Jew. The organization, which rose to prominence in 2017 after sponsoring anti-Trump protests across the country, developed a reputation as a hotbed for anti-Semitism
