Regressive leftist hero exposed to be a phony, again, in racist attack on white student who asked about infamous tweet.
Linda Sarsour has rocketed to progressive fame by expertly playing upon liberals’ need for virtue signaling.
Sarsour talks a good game about everyone getting along, but demands that Zionist women be excluded from the feminist movement and embraced convicted terrorist murderer and immigration fraudster Rasmea Odeh (Featured Image above). She has given speeches at a Farrakhan-sponsored event, and thinks it’s the “definition of courage” for Palestinians to send out little children to throw rocks.
Sarsour posted a vile tweet attacking Ayaan Hirsi Ali in 2011, which we highlighted in #WomensMarch Co-Chair Linda Sarsour’s Twitter attack on victim of female genital mutilation:
Sarsour is politically two-faced. When she interacts with “progressives,” particularly leftist Jews, she’s all about understanding and respect. When she around other crowds, such a the Louis Farrakan organized 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, she’s tried to tie Israel (i.e., the Jews) to the problems of blacks in America….
The controversy over Sarsour, however, reached new heights when it was discovered that she viciously attacked Ayaan Hirshi Ali, a childhood victim of Female Genital Mutiliation. Ali is hated by Islamists because of her break with Islam over her mutilation.
Sarsour tweeted that Ali, and also Brigitte Gabriel, shouldn’t even have vaginas — a particularly inappropriate comment given the genital mutilation of Ali. Even if Sarsour were not the Co-Chair of the Women’s March it would be a cruel tweet, but coming from someone who has become a feminist hero to liberals, it was particularly bad.
When Sarsour was called out on it, she deleted the tweet:
The tweet received extensive media coverage.
Yet recently, Sarsour suggested it might never have happened.
The video below from CAMERA shows Sarsour race-baiting a white student who raised the issue. Sarsour insisting that a white person had no place to question her at a forum organized by “people of color” in itself showed a side of Sarsour she tries to hide. She deliberately stokes racial animosity as a tactic.
But equally important, Sarsour suggested the tweet about Ayaan Hirsi Ali might never have happened (transcript via Heat Street, emphasis added):
“This question is really important because I believe that women’s rights are human rights,” said the unnamed questioner.
“So I really want to know under what circumstances is it acceptable to say that ‘I wish I could take their vaginas away. They don’t deserve to be women,’” he asked. “Just to give that context that was one of your tweets off your Twitter.”
Following a lengthy pause, Sarsour’s offered a response: “So, let’s give some context here. Because you… we have… This is an event organized by an Asian American, right? Let’s just get some context to what is going on here.”
“Celebrating a community, right?” Sarsour continued. “Talking about communities of color who are being directly impacted at this moment and I have a young white man in the back who is not directly impacted by any of the issues that I mentioned.”
Her evasive response was met with widespread applause from the audience of Dartmouth students.
“A copy and paste that he got from a right-wing blog,” she continued. “He doesn’t even know if it came from my Twitter account because he has a screenshot of it. He never actually went to my Twitter to see if it’s actually there. Right? That never happened.”
Here’s the video and key screen caps:
The students in the audience almost certainly thought this was a denial that Sarsour ever sent the tweet given the way in which Sarsour denied that the questioner had proof she sent the tweet.
Call it a “little” lie.
But it’s a big deal because Linda Sarsour is a rising star in the regressive movement, which seeks to normalize Islamist oppression of women in the name of feminism.
Sarsour’s attack on Ayaan Hirsi Ali is the real Linda Sarsour, as is her race-baiting of the white questioner. The rest is just for show.
Will being caught in this “little” lie damage Sarsour? Unlikely. She’s the Commencement Speaker at the City University of New York graduation this year, so her star is still rising.DONATE
