LINDA SARSOUR IS A COMPLETE IDIOT
A vile disgrace
July 20, 2017 by Paul Joseph Watson
You’re not a feminist. You’re not a human rights activist. You’re an Islamist.
You’re a vile disgrace to women and all mankind.
You’re a phony. You’re a fraud.
July 21, 2017 By Bradley Martin
When Jake Tapper, CNN’s chief washington correspondent, slammed Linda Sarsour and other progressive leaders of the anti-Trump Women’s March for honoring convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, Sarsour proceeded to dismiss Tapper as “alt-right.”
Of all the possible ways to describe Tapper, “alt-right” is not one. Tapper is one of President Trump’s most vocal critics. And he’s Jewish. Someone should tell Sarsour this would likely disqualify him for membership in any white supremacist group. But Sarsour’s “resume,” Tapper’s condemnation of her, and their subsequent Twitter exchange illustrate the extent to which this darling of the progressive Left—and her progressive Left followers—are unhinged.
This Murderer Is So Awesome, Guys
Shakur is a felon, convicted in 1977 for murdering a New Jersey police officer, assaulting another police officer, and bank robbery. In 1979 she escaped prison and fled to Cuba. She remains on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorist” list to this day.
Sarsour’s idolizing of Shakur follows on the heels of her presentation at the 54th annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America, where she called on Muslims to commit jihad against the American government.
“I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our [Muslim] communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad,” said Sarsour. “That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United States of America.”
In an interview soon after with The Washington Post, Sarsour was quick to clarify that her speech at ISNA was advocating solely for peaceful, nonviolent dissent, and that her call for jihad only meant the use of words. In a later op-ed for the publication, Sarsour doubled down on her claim that she was only calling for “nonviolent” jihad.
“Yeah, and the swastika is just a Tibetan good luck charm,” as the late comedian Robin Williams so eloquently put it.
But I Also Love Mass Murderers and Their Inciters
Sarsour began her ISNA presentation by thanking her “favorite person” in the room, Imam Siraj Wahaj, praising him as her “mentor, motivator and encourager.” Wahaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, has called for violent jihad and replacing the U.S. government with an Islamic caliphate. Sarsour’s mentor has also denounced homosexuality as “a disease of this [American] society,” noting that the penalty for homosexuality under Islamic law is death.
But this doesn’t seem right. How can such a self-declared progressive proponent of social justice have such a violent homophobic bigot for a mentor? Maybe ISNA can shed some light on this glaring contradiction.
Federal prosecutors have said that ISNA is part of the U.S Muslim Brotherhood network set up to funnel money to the terrorist group Hamas. ISNA conferences have long featured radical Islamists, anti-Semites, Holocaust-deniers, and homophobes as keynote speakers. An exclusive video from PJ Media shows al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, just days before the 9/11 terror attacks, lecturing on “tolerance” at that year’s ISNA convention.
At this year’s ISNA convention, a pro-LGBT and feminist Muslim organization was expelled from tabling. Muslims for Progressive Values, whose pamphlets advocate for LGBT and women’s equality within Islam, drew the ire of an ultra-orthodox attendee, resulting in ISNA staff asking MPV to close shop and vacate the venue.
“We’re really sick and tired of the hypocrisy of them [ISNA] claiming to be LGBT allies,” said Ani Zonneveld, founder and president of MPV. “They’re only an ally when the camera is on.”
Strangely, Sarsour hasn’t uttered one word of protest, despite vocally leading a national march and “movement” against what the Resistance calls President Trump’s anti-LGBT regime. But to be fair, she may have been too busy swindling Jewish cemeteries out of their money. Back in March, an organization connected to Sarsour pledged $100,000 to conduct necessary repairs at a Colorado Jewish cemetery. The money has yet to arrive.
Also, People Who Disagree With Me Should Be Brutalized
The ever-so-peaceful, nonviolent Sarsour has called for the genital mutilation of women who disagree with her. In 2011, this self-described progressive feminist tweeted against Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel, an Arab Christian survivor of the Lebanese Civil War, stating they did not deserve to be women and that she wanted to take away their vaginas.
This is especially vile considering that Ali was a victim of female genital mutilation as a five-year-old in Somalia. When a student confronted Sarsour about the tweet, she attacked him for being a white man.
Sarsour’s latest Twitter argument confirms that she doesn’t really care about racial equality, LGBT rights, or the rights of women. For all of her screeching at critics to “check their privilege,” a better idea would be for Sarsour to check her gigantic ego at the door.
Many left-wing progressive and Islamic political groups have quietly walked away from Islamic activist Linda Sarsour since her incendiary July 1 appeal for Muslims in America to declare jihad on elected President Donald Trump.
She is getting sharp-eyed criticism from experts on Islam for her call to jihad against Trump — and for her calls for Islamic self-segregation and loyalty to Allah only. But she is getting only tepid and perfunctory public support from her usual alliance of Islamic and progressive allies.
Her supporting hashtag, #IStandWithLinda, shows few tweets of support from well-known Democrats, and a growing number of critics.
Very few politicians, political donors or progressive activists have spoken up in her favor. For example, she has got no support from Bernie Sanders whom she supported throughout the 2016 election.
Few media outlets are broadcasting her novel claim that jihad actually means public criticism. The New York Times posted a gushing article in 2015 about the “Brooklyn Homegirl in a Hijab,” but has completely ignored her after the speech. HuffPo has posted just two weak op-eds defending her jihad advocacy, and Buzzfeed has not said anything since legal correspondent Chris Geidner tweeted out a defense of her without recognizing Sarsour’s multiple references to jihad in her “word of truth” phrase.
Geidner and Sarsour did not respond to a messages from Breitbart News.
Time magazine did post an article titled “Women’s March Organizer Linda Sarsour Spoke of ‘Jihad.’ But She Wasn’t Talking About Violence.” The site didn’t accept readers’ comments and has not posted an update.
The Washington Post has not posted any reported article defending her call for jihad but did print her evasive op-ed. Yet the most-liked comment response to her op-ed in the progressive paper declared:
As an atheist, I feel confident that i am able to voice my opinion to my peers without fear of reprisal. The same can not be said if i were in a Islam majority country. The current brand of Islam is the opposite of liberalism. I don’t want anyone calling for “Jihad” or holy war on anyone. Regardless of how a person meant it. Hundreds of millions have died and science has been stomped out in the name of Jihad.
The second-most approved comment said:
WAPO would not and should not accept editorials from David Duke. So why provide a legitimizing platform for Sarsour, who is equally hateful?
The comments show that “there is is a general cynicism about the idea that Islam is a religion of peace,” said Robert Spencer, the author of several best-selling books about Islam, and the operator of the JihadWatch.org website. The idea “is met with ridicule,” he added.
Sarsour briefly defended her jihad advocacy on her Twitter account and retweeted endorsements from fellow Islamic revivalists, such as Mohamed Elibiary, Zahra Billoo, Dahlia Mogahed, Zaki Barzinji, Hussam Ayloush and Suhaib Webb. She got some support from progressives who have allied themselves with the Islamic revivalists, such as Kai Newkirk, Mark Lamont Hill, and Deray McKesson at Black Lives Matter,
But that pro-Sarsour article was scorched by the left-wing supporters of ThinkProgress.org. The most-liked response said:
This article is dishonest and incorrect. I am an ex muslim and can assure you that Jihad is a mandatory, offensive, violent fight against the enemies of islam a.k.a unbelievers. Its goal is to establish islam and islamic law (sharia) and to subjugate unbelievers. Financially supporting islamist groups is also accepted a jihad if you are too lazy to go kill infidels. For those who don’t believe me, read the chapter on Jihad in ‘Umdat as-Salik wa ‘Uddat an-Nasik (Reliance of the Traveler), the classic manual on Sharia…
The content of Sarsour’s speech is difficult for Americans or progressives to accept. It is neither a left-wing speech not a right-wing speech, but is instead a revivalist, fundamentalist Islamic speech, and it exposed her segregationist, theocratic and anti-modern agenda:
I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts us from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United States of America…
Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community. It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority. Our obligation is to our young people, is to our women, to make sure our women are protected in our community, and our top priority, even higher than all those priorities, is to please Allah and only Allah.
Since that speech, Sarsour has not been able to retweet support from establishment Democrats because those Democrats are not supporting her in public.
The post-speech silence of her progressive allies is a strong contrast to a tsunami of soft-focus praise which Sarsour received in January for being our of four leaders in the “Women’s March” against the newly elected President Donald Trump.
Time magazine described Sarsour and her three co-leaders of the march as members of its “100 Most Influential People” for 2017. Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand provided the fluff:
The Women’s March was the most inspiring and transformational moment I’ve ever witnessed in politics … it happened because four extraordinary women—Tamika Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour—had the courage to take on something big, important and urgent, and never gave up … These women are the suffragists of our time.
Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison, who is a co-chair of the Democratic National Committee, backed Sarsour amid criticism in April, but his Twitter feed shows no support for her since the speech.
Michael Blake, a New York Democrat and a senior member of the DNC, vociferously supported Sarsour in April, but his tweets say nothing about Sarsour since the speech.
He posted an image of Sarsour on July 14 but did not name her.
Similarly, ACLU lawyer and transgender activist Chase Strangio backed Sarsour on January 23.
But he has only retweeted out Geidner’s tweet since Sarsour’s public devotion to jihad, segregation, and Allah.
One of her few American supporters is progressive TV commentator Van Jones, who has kept up his support for her with a July 7 and July 11 tweets:
Sarsour was one of the co-leaders in the January “Women’s March” in Washington D.C. against Donald Trump. But that organization has not tried to justify or excuse her pro-jihad speech. Instead, the group’s first response said pro-jihad Sarsour is being criticized because she’s a “leader who unites.”
Three days later, as more people read her speech, her apparent social-media support from the march activists fell by 75 percent.

Opinion | Islamophobes are attacking me because I’m their worst nightmare
The word “jihad” has been hijacked by Muslim extremists and right-wing extremists alike.
That’s a long drop from the enthusiastic support Sarsour got from the march movement in January.
That evasive op-ed was broadcast by her allies in the Justice League NYC and the National Immigration Law Center.
Sarsour attended an anti-gun march July 16 and got some publicity — and a small level of social-media support — from her allies at the poorly attended event.
Her main allies have sent out tepid supporting comments — none of which defended on mentioned the content of Sarsour’s call for segregation and jihad. For example, the ACLU justified its support by
For example, the ACLU justified its support by Sarsour because “she fights for civil rights and civil liberties.”
She fights for civil rights and civil liberties. Here’s a profile of @lsarsour for our magazine to learn more: https://www.aclu.org/blog/speak-freely/muslim-american-intersectional-activism-linda-sarsour … https://twitter.com/nateroth/status/884832419081109504 …
Muslim, American, & Intersectional: The Activism of Linda Sarsour
TO THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW HER, Linda Sarsour might seem out of place in the lobby of the Public Theater on a blustery January night.Sarsour, head of the Arab-American Association of New York, waits…
The ACLU tweet provided a link to an August 2016 ACLU article which touted Sarsour’s alliances with progressives, but completely whitewashed her Islamic agenda, saying:
She sees her community’s struggles for equal rights as no great departure from momentous civil rights battles past and present. The outlook fuels the breadth of her activism: She works on immigration, women’s and economic issues, police accountability, and much more. And she is rigorous about showing up. After Michael Brown, a Black teenager, was shot dead by police in Ferguson, Missouri, Sarsour traveled there to join the Black Lives Matter protests…
she opens her talk by telling the crowd, “If you feel uncomfortable about what I’m saying, that’s your problem, not my problem.” She admonishes racism in the Muslim community with sloganeering (“Sisters and brothers, justice is not just us”) and religious inspiration (“If our prophet was calling for radical equality, why aren’t you?”).
Sarsour gave her speech at the annual convention of the fundamentalist group, the Islamic Society of North America. But that group distanced itself from her after equivocating for several days and offered only a weak signal of solidarity on July 8 without endorsing her incendiary – although orthodox Islamic — remarks.
ISNA’s president, Azhar Azeez said: “ISNA is proud to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas put forward by speakers such as Linda Sarsour. We appreciate Linda’s commitment to social justice and look forward to hosting her at future ISNA events.”
The Muslim Public Affairs Council is a pro-Islamist lobby but it ignored the controversy despite prior support for Sarsour. In January 2017, the MPAC group posted a favorable article saying “Linda spoke truth to power … [and] as an activist [is one of the] prime examples of American Muslim civic engagement and the valuable contributions they bring to American society. “
The twitter account of the far-left Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law celebrated Sarour in April.
The group was silent after her jihad speech — until Sarsour spoke at the July 15 anti-gun event.
The Southern Poverty Legal Center defended Sarsour in January but has not made a comment about the jihad-and-segregation speech.
The strongest statement in support of Sarsour came from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a pro-Islam group that portrays itself as a civil rights group.
Breitbart has frequently noted that the CAIR group is so closely entwined with Islamists and with jihadis that court documents and news reports show that at least five of its people — either board members, employees or former employees — have been jailed or repatriated for various financial and terror-related offenses.
Breitbart has also published evidence highlighted by critics showing that CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Texas-based criminal effort to deliver $12 million to the Jew-hating HAMAS jihad group, that CAIR was founded with $490,000 from HAMAS, and that the FBI bans top-level meetings with CAIR officials. “ In 2009, a federal judge concluded that “the government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR… with Hamas.” CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation.
Despite the loss of support and visibility, Sarsour was invited to give a sideshow speechat a hip-hop concern in her Brooklyn hometown.
