Washington State Women's March is disbanding amid reports of anti-Semitism in the progressive organization at the national level.

The Washington chapter revealed they could no longer abide attacks on the Jewish community from the group's leaders.

National Women's March Co-Chairs Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, and Tamika Mallory remain closely linked to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

The Daily Wire's Emily Zanotti reports:
 

The group's spokeswoman took to Facebook to explain the "difficult" decision.



 

“Continuing to be a part of the Women’s March with the blatant bigotry they display would be breaking a promise,” she wrote. “We can’t betray our Jewish community by remaining a part of this organization.”


Painstaking reporting explained how power consolidated in the hands of Sarsour, Perez, and Mallory, who dismissed criticism of them as partisan or thinly-veiled racism.

Yet several local chapters have separated from the national Women's March over the past two months – including Houston, Portland, Washington, D.C., Alabama, Florida, and Rhode Island.
