A socialist candidate for Congress has lost the endorsement of Marianne Williamson, former contender for the Democratic nomination for president, after calling for the ethnic cleansing of the Jewish state of Israel.

Stephanie Gallardo, a candidate for Congress endorsed by the Democratic Socialist of America, tweeted on February 18, 2022, "Intifada, uprising, power to the people."

An intifada, which in Arabic means, "a rebellion, uprising, to shake off," is a reference to the First and Second Intifadas in Israel that took place between 1987-1993 and 2000-2004, respectively, and were times of sustained Palestinian terror attacks against civilians in the Jewish state.

Williamson had originally endorsed Gallardo. After being asked by The Ari Hoffman Show on Talk Radio 570 KVI if she stood by her endorsement in light of Gallardo’s comments, Williamson withdrew her endorsement.

"I believe America should provide equally robust support for the security as well as human rights of both Israelis and Palestinians. For that reason, I support a two state solution," Williamson said.

"While I have serious disagreements with Israeli policies regarding the occupation, settlements, and other domestic issues within the state of Israel, my support for her right to exist as a Jewish state is unwavering."

"There is a way to support and understand the American-Israeli alliance yet remain decidedly critical of certain Israeli policies. I support many candidates whose views fall into that category. I cannot, however, endorse any candidate who supports actions that undermine Israel’s right to exist or which could harm Israeli citizens."

"For that reason, I must withdraw my endorsement of Stephanie Gallardo in Washington D-9. I have been very impressed by Ms. Gallardo’s views on other issues, and I hope she will reconsider her stances on this one," Williamson concluded.

During the Second Intifada, there were 138 attacks on civilians and approximately 1,038 Israeli citizens were killed.

Over the past week, three terrorist attacks in Israel have killed 11 innocent people including Arab, Druze, Jewish and Christian citizens of Israel, as well as two Ukrainian nationals.

One of the victims was a young father who was taking his infant son for a walk and died shielding his child from bullets. Another victim was an Arab police officer, newly engaged to a Jewish partner, who managed to neutralize one of the terrorists but lost his life in the process.

Far-left organizations including Jewish Voice for Peace, Within Our Lifetime, Defund Racism, Palestinian Youth Movement and the CUNY chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine have held rallies and chanted, "...from New York to Gaza, Globalize the Intifada," and "...there is only one solution — intifada revolution."

Gallardo’s endorsement list is "who’s who" of local far-left extremists, including former Seattle City Council candidate Nicole Thomas Kennedy, a police and prison abolitionist, and Antifa supporter.

list of endorsements on Gallardo's websitee

As of Sunday evening, Williamson’s endorsement was still listed on Gallardo’s website.

Gallardo also supported candidate for King County Council Ubax Gardheere after it was revealed by The Post Millennial that she had threatened to blow up a school bus filled with middle school students. The story went viral and still Gallardo supported her campaign.

Gallardo’s obsession with the Jewish state seems to be one of the primary cornerstones of her campaign and social media.

Gallardo is teachers' union leader and also a supporter of Washington Ethnic Studies Now, a far-left pro CRT organization dedicated to "Ethnic Studies in every classroom of WA State taught by anti-racist educators committed to centering the history and lived experiences of Black, Indigenous, and people of Color."

The co-founder of and executive director of the group Tracy Castro-Gill, who according to an expose by the Daily Wire, was at the "…forefront of Seattle Public Schools’ (SPS) initiatives… until recently its director of ethnic studies," and one of the people mainly responsible for "The academic achievement of Seattle’s youth plummeted as she implemented initiatives like replacing math instruction with courses on 'power and oppression.'"

According to author Luke Rosiak, "Castro-Gill, it turned out, was a perennially unhappy toxic liar, one who misrepresented her background to the point that her own father compared her to Rachel Dolezal, and who was ultimately pushed out of her job for repeated misconduct. A focus on racial oppression did not create resiliency, but rather despondency, with Castro-Gill and three other racial justice leaders going on paid leave from SPS for mental health issues in 2019 alone."

He added, "As Castro-Gill used children for politics in the workplace, her personal life also raised questions about the costs that can incur. She married a convicted child molester and moved her young daughter in with him. Then, her previous ex-husband told me, she pressured her child, who had serious mental impairments, to become gender-nonbinary."

According to transcripts obtained by The Ari Hoffman Show, Castro-Gill was recently revealed using antisemitic tropes and pushing false narratives with her guest in discussing if Jews should be considered white and have "White Privilege."

The group has retweeted some of Gallardo’s anti-Israel rhetoric and is hosting her as an upcoming speaker.
