Hate is a feature not a bug in the Women’s March.
Zahra Billoo, who joined the board of the Women’s March just several days ago, announced on her Twitter feed Thursday morning that she has been voted off the board.
Billoo has a history of controversial statements on Twitter, in which she has compared the U.S. and Israeli militaries to ISIS and Nazis, once even asserting that the FBI recruits “mentally ill” people to join ISIS.
The Women’s March has not released a statement explaining the justification for her dismissal as of this writing.
However, Billoo asserted in a tweet thread that she was voted out as a result of an “Islamophobic smear campaign led by the usual antagonists, who have long targeted me, my colleagues, and anyone else who dares speak out in defense of Palestinian human rights and the right to self determination.”
