Yesterday, the Washington Post and New York Times reported that three inaugural board members of the left-wing advocacy group Women’s March resigned amidst accusations of “anti-Semitism, infighting, and financial mismanagement.” Co-Chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, and Linda Sarsour had been catapulted to national prominence for, among other things, heavy-handed critiques of President Trump.

Not only is Sarsour a public supporter of the boycott, divestment, sanctions movement, but as Tobin asserts, “She isn’t coy about her objectives [in...
