There’s trouble brewing in the Democrats’ Rainbow Coalition.
A Women’s March leader mired in controversy because of her association with the virulently anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has attacked Starbucks for including the Anti-Defamation League among its advisers on bias.
Tamika Mallory in a tweet Tuesday evening accused the Jewish group of “constantly attacking black and brown people.”
[…]“So you are aware, Starbucks was on a decent track until they enlisted the Anti-Defamation League to build their anti-bias training,” Mallory tweeted. “The ADL is CONSTANTLY attacking black and brown people. This is a sign that they are tone deaf and not committed to addressing the concerns of black folks. Be clear about what’s happening here.”

Mallory wasn’t specific in her criticism, although the ADL had criticized her and Women’s March in February after Mallory tweeted enthusiastically about her attendance at a speech in which Farrakhan attacked Jews, women and the LGBTQ community.
The ADL has been working feverishly to expel Louis Farrakhan supporters from the Democratic Party and get Democratic leaders to denounce him — without much success.
