Breitbart, by Alex Vanness, Febtuary 3, 2017:

Linda Sarsour is a principal organizer for Woman’s March on Washington following President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Her rise to liberal stardom following the march has occurred in spite of her support for anti-feminist views and outrageous attacks on anti-Sharia women leaders.

Sarsour, who serves as the executive director of the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY) and who was honored by former-President Obama’s White House as a “champion of change,” seems as if she makes it a point to attach herself to every social justice cause known to man and tie it to Palestine. For example, in November, she attached herself to the cause of blocking Dakota Access Pipeline and made sure to bring her Palestinian flag.

This shameless promotion could also be seen at the Women’s March as well. When addressing the crowd, she made sure to inject some Palestinian solidarity into the cause, stating “you can count on [her], your Palestinian Muslim sister to keep her voice loud.” She also made sure to note that she was her “Palestinian grandmother’s who lives in occupied territory wildest dream.”

However, her biggest splash that weekend was when the level of her hypocrisy towards the cause espoused by the Woman’s March was pointed out to the public.

Specifically, a tweet of Sarsour’s dismissing the misogynistic views of Saudi Arabia simply because the country has a paid maternity leave program, has been making the rounds on social media.

Sarsour dismisses the fact that women in Saudi Arabia are treated as second-class citizens who are unable to drive, interact with men, and dress as they please as inconsequential.

In addition to her dismissal of Saudi subjugation of women, she has attacked a documentary calling attention to the plight of women in the Islamic world. Sarsour has been a vocal critic of the executive producer of the film, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Dutch Parliamentarian, ex-Muslim, and vocal critic of Islam who was also the victim of female genital mutilation.

In 2011, Sarsour took to twitter and vulgarly berated Hirsi Ali; and ACT for America founder, Brigitte Gabriel, and said, “I wish I could take their vaginas away – they don’t deserve to be women.” This is especially in vulgar considering the suffering Hirsi Ali has endured. Shortly after the tweet was uncovered, instead of owning up to the vulgar tweet and apologizing, she tried to delete it before it was seen by too many people.

Sarsour also has a long history of criticizing Israel in ways that cross the line into anti-Semitism and terrorist sympathizing.

She supports the discriminatory and terror-tied BDS Movement and has claimed that “nothing is creepier” than Zionism.

She called for solidarity with Muhammad Allan, a member of the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad who has a history of recruiting suicide bombers.

After her hypocrisy towards Woman’s issue’s was exposed, she defended herself by describing attacks on her as fascist, claiming “Fascism is here” and that “[w]e cannot allow them to criminalize our leaders and movements using baseless claims… Remember, we are and can be the true #NeverAgain generation.”

She describes those supporting her as her “Love Army.” To them, legitimate criticisms of both her views and her associations ring hollow.

Groups that sponsored the march – including the official twitter account of Woman’s March, Human Rights Watch, Black Lives Matter, Amnesty International, and the Southern Poverty Law Center – have launched a full scale defense of Sarsour. The hashtag #IMarchWithLinda trended on Twitter.

Cable news personality Sally Kohn issued several tweets defending Sarsour, including calls for people to donate to the AAANY. I don’t think Kohn is aware that the AAANY used to receive financial support from Qatar Foundation International, an organization closely linked to the Qatari government. Additionally, because of her ties to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, the AAANY was able to secure $500,000 in funding for the AAANY.

Sarsour also received several celebrity endorsements from, among others, Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, and Russell Simmons.

Hey, if Mark Ruffalo likes her she must be good, right?

While personal attestations are nice, they are not proof that someone’s even a good person. Even terrible people can find someone who thinks they’re nice.

Those supporting her do not care that she promotes terrorists; they don’t care that she vulgarly called for a victim of female genital mutilation to have her genitalia removed; and they are not concerned that she downplays misogyny in Saudi Arabia. As far as they’re concerned, she helped set up a March so therefore she’s the bees knees.

Sarsour is seen as a rising star in leftist circles and the Democratic Party.   The left needs to take the blinders off and take a long, hard look at the people they’re propping up as role models.

  1. Linda Sarsour is a defender and supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, PA and Hamas terrorists. How would she know about American Womens Rights, or about our Constitution or rule of law? She is a subversive and a hypocrite. While Muslim women in the Middle East fight for their rights and protest at their own peril, Ms Sarsour wants American women to don the hijab and be subject to Sharia. Please see this article from Egypt as a reaction to the women’s March in DC. http://www.cheriberens.net/womenrsquos-march-towards-islam.html

  2. This is an unsubstantiated piece on Linda Sarsour and some of the limited in-fighting among women’s groups related to women’s march and resistance to the Trump administration’s agenda. The piece is amateurish cherry-picking of her tweets and other public statements, taking her words out of context. There is not any analysis or supporting secondary literature to substantiate this amateur writer’s claims. I would read this piece with caution and it is a quality little better than a college freshman’s essay assignment.

  3. Women’s Marches Against Trump

    On January 21, some women’s rights groups organized “Women’s Marches” in many cities across the Unites States and around the world. The rallies largely targeted recently-inaugurated U.S. President Donald John Trump.

    One of the most prominent organizers of “Women’s Marches” is Linda Sarsour who is the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House “Champion of Change,” who spoke at last month’s 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America.

    Linda Sarsour is very active on Twitter. She is pro Sharia law and a couple of her tweets even have a seditious tone to them where she glorifies Sharia law and hints at it taking over America whereby Americans will have interest free loans.

    The reasons why Linda Sarsour is one of the instigators are:
    DJ Trump declared he will only allow Muslims coming into the USA after they are fully vetted
    DJ Trump has declared TOTAL war against ISIS. No holds barred
    DJ Trump has promised to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel

    As far as Linda Sarsour is concerned DJ Trump is the enemy of Islam obviously and conveniently forgetting that Muslims and Islam have been and are the enemies of EVERY human being on Earth who is not a Muslim called Kuffar/ Infidels (currently 80% of none Muslim humanity). In fact Muslims had been active warring enemies of the American Republic since its birth in 1776.

    As a Muslima, Linda Sarsour suffers from the debilitating mental disorder that plagues ALL Muslim called “Blame the Victim” Syndrome.

    Dear Americans not a SINGLE female among the hundreds of thousands demonstrating against President Trump at the behest of Linda Sarsour and others has two brain cells of logic because under Sharia EVERY female on Earth is just one little step higher up the ladder of evolution than Domestic Animals.

    For those who are clueless about Islam, I am speaking of 750,000,000 Muslim females who are subjected to horrendous discriminatory male imposed rules including 125,000,000 who have so far suffered Female Genital Mutilation yet these utterly STUPID American women are demonstrating FOR Sharia.

    There were many speakers and participants. There was Madonna who wished she could blow up the White House. Another was the actress Ashley Judd who read a poem in Washington D.C. that asked why “tampons are taxed when Viagra and Rogaine are not”.

    While Madonna and Ms Judd talked about their distressing erroneously perceived tragedy, thousands of Yazidi women, girls and children were being forced into sexual slavery in Iraq and Syria at the hands of Islamic State (ISIS), and available for purchase at sex-slave markets.

    Dear Infidels/ Kuffar, please be aware that Linda Sarsour wears the hijab and is attired in the Islamic manner and on several occasions in pictures and on Twitter she raises her index finger as a sign of TAWHEED (Allah is one) of ISIS . This means that Linda Sarsour is fully SHARIA Compliant.

    Since Linda Sarsour is Sharia compliant, therefore she is FORBIDDEN from ever being LOYAL to the American Constitution (because it is not from Allah’s Sharia) nor can she ever be LOYAL to none Muslim Americans (called Kuffar/ Infidels; 97% of Americans)

    Furthermore, since most probably at least 90% of those demonstrating around the world are NOT Muslims but are Infidels/ Kuffar, they are therefore supporting the Muslima Linda Sarsour and Islam the very enemies of ALL none Muslim humanity; their own mortal enemies.

    There are pictures of Western women condemning Trump’s alleged misogyny in association with females in hijab declaring their Islam, the very NEMESIS of women’s rights. These Western female demonstrators are the usual clueless Useful Idiots who are available at the drop of a hat in their hundreds of thousands to fall over the cliff like lemmings the instant the objective is vilifying males.

    These alleged ‘feminists’ are literally aiding and abetting the very organizations in the USA and outside that would replace Western Civilization with either leftist fascism or Islamic Sharia. Not a single female amongst them could actually articulate the purpose of their ‘movement’ in any coherent and rational manner.

    The greatest tragedy of all is the fact that there is not a single prime time TV station to bring these leaders to the show and debate them because almost the entirety of the American media is itself either clueless about Islam or in lock step with it.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I have repeatedly asserted that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse of Muhammadan Islam are called: Knowledge! Knowledge! Knowledge! & Knowledge!

    Because the worst nightmare of Muslims is to DEBATE someone who knows Islam better than they do and who can literally pulverise any and all of their arguments.

    For most of the last fifty years, so called ‘feminists’ wilfully and unconscionably IGNORED the plight of millions of young Muslim girls who suffer Genital Mutilation and or early arranged marriages to much older men. These ‘feminists’ are BRAVE burning their bras, their underwear and declaring their agenda ONLY in Western democracies knowing full well that they are safe.

    These women are ‘feminists’ only in their warped and cowardly minds because in reality they NEVER stood up to be counted in support of at least 750,000,000 OPPRESSED Muslim females around the world.

    All their protestations will add to naught because their purpose is IGNOBLE and will not start any meaningful movement.

    Donald J Trump will prove them and ALL his detractors not only Wrong but demonstrate them to be Intolerant, Immoral and Unjust.

    IQ al Rassooli
    Kafir & Proud!
    MAGA & DTS!
