Right-wing activist Laura Loomer stormed the stage at a Women's March event in New York City on Saturday, bringing attention to the anti-Semitic scandal currently embroiling the notorious left-wing women's activist group.
Loomer, who live-streamed the incident on Instagram, stormed the main stage at the Women's March New York City event, shouting, "The Women's March does not represent Jewish people," "The Women's March hates Jews," "What about the Jews?" and "The Women's March is the real Nazi march."

According to the Washington Examiner, Loomer told security she was a member of the press, which allowed her close access to the stage. She interrupted Agunda Okeyo, director for Women's March New York City, when she jumped on stage, attempting to take the microphone.
More from the Examiner:
Loomer yelled the names of several activists, including Women's March leader Linda Sarsour, and called them "Jew-haters." She protested her removal, arguing that Jewish women were invited. Loomer livestreamed herself for an additional 30 minutes, standing on a sidewalk near the stage providing commentary to those watching.

The Women's March movement has come under controversy in recent months for apparent anti-Semitism among its national leadership, which includes, among other allegations, supporting Louis Farrakhan, pushing Jewish leaders out of the organization, and even refusing to acknowledge Israel's right to exist.
