Linda Sarsour Defends Rep. Ilhan Omar Amid Anti-Semitic Controversy

Linda Sarsour Defends Rep. Ilhan Omar Amid Anti-Semitic Controversy

“I will not be silent in the face of attacks, harassment and targeted policing of speech from a Black Muslim woman”

https://youtu.be/DnaT8JxUTY0

Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota is having quite a week. She went on a little anti-Semitic Twitter spree which was so offensive that it earned her rebuke from Democrat leaders and led to a forced and awkward apology.

Now Linda Sarsour, who has her own issues on this topic, is coming to her defense.

Caleb Howe writes at Mediaite:

Linda Sarsour Attacks AIPAC in Defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar

Pro-Palestine activist and Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour weighed in on the controversy over comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, in which the Minnesota Democrat mocked the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in tweets described by many as blatantly anti-Semitic.

Sarsour has herself been the subject of similar accusations over her activism and, along with other members of the Women’s March leadership, the association with and support for anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

“I will not be silent in the face of attacks, harassment and targeted policing of speech from a Black Muslim woman elected official, our sister Ilhan Omar in the name of combatting antisemitism,” Sarsour wrote in her closing on Facebook.

Most of the post was written as a defense of attacking AIPAC, without recognition of the specific tweet that prompted the most responses, including one from former first daughter Chelsea Clinton.

Here’s an excerpt from Sarsour’s Facebook post:

AIPAC is one of the most influential lobbies in American politics – alongside the NRA (maybe not anymore), fossil fuel industry and big pharmaceuticals.

AIPAC is a lobbying organization. Here is the definition of lobby from the DICTIONARY:

“a group of people seeking to influence politicians or public officials on a particular issue.”

AIPAC connects donors to campaigns and elected officials. Trying to argue that critiquing the role of AIPAC which let’s be clear is not a Jewish organization, many of its leaders and members are Christian Zionists – is antisemitic is ludicrous.

Antisemitism is REAL. Antisemitism can harm people as we see in hate crimes against visible Jewish Americans. Antisemitism can be lethal as we witnessed in the horrific attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue.

Critiques of the State of Israel ARE NOT antisemitic. Calling out AIPAC is not antisemitic.

This sums it up pretty well:

DONATE

Comments

One problem: Nobody is trying to “police” Rep. Omar’s speech. Nobody is saying she can’t say what she wants to say, just that maybe she shouldn’t.

On the contrary, every conservative I know agrees: Let her keep talking. Please.

Aside from the fact that her tweets will make it trivially easy to campaign against her, it’s popcorn-worthy entertainment to watch the Left eat its own. 😉

Yes, Linda So Sour, please rally to her.

When all the anti-semites stop hiding their hate (and they haven’t been trying very hard for a while now) and come out into the light together it’s easier to keep track.

Sarsour said, “Critiques of the State of Israel ARE NOT antisemitic. Calling out AIPAC is not antisemitic.”

Fair enough, from he who believes that there is no topic above criticism. Now repeat after me,

“Critiques of Islam and Muslim behaviors ARE NOT Islamophobic. Calling out Muslims for their murderous acts is not Islamophobic.”

    Anti-Semitic or Anti-Zionist — the results are the same: Dead Jews

    I have for a long time believed that we should pour on criticism of Islam, it should be in their face. And when they react by killing, we should return that by at least 100,000 fold.

    We should not be kowtowing in any way to these degenerate people.

    That, and we need to get busy on developing technology to steer big rocks towards belligerent Muslims. One decent sized rock for each of their terror actions.

    Brilliant. And oh so logical.

“Pot Comes to Kettle’s Defense!”

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | February 12, 2019 at 12:57 pm

There is no defense of this……

The pot and the kettle just started a book club it seems.

Don’t you just love the “I will not be silent” preface.

By all means, open your mouth and remove all doubt, fool!

The Democrats have become a party of grievance mongers, and we will see far more of these single issue hate groups in the House.

Dog bites man. Water is wet. Sky is blue. Joooo-hatin’ Muslimas stick together.

Remember this gem:

https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2013/01/egyptian-president-calls-jews-sons-of-apes-and-pigs-world-yawns/267131/

“Egyptian President Calls Jews ‘Sons of Apes and Pigs’; World Yawns”

You’ll hear this s*** in Mosques all over the world. Muslims are convinced it’s history based on three verses in Quran:7:166, 2:65, and 5:60. That Allah literally turned Jews into apes and swine for breaking the sabbath.

They can’t help themselves. Their entire religion is based upon hatred of non-Muslims; 60:4.

So, Archer, you have nothing to worry about. They’ll keep talking.

    It would be fine if all they did was talk. But they don’t just talk.

      Keep in mind that if we give in in any way that they will simply demand more. We need to kick these SOBs in the chops, no appeasement.

      Arminius in reply to elle. | February 13, 2019 at 6:54 am

      They were never going to stop at just talking. But allowing them to undermine us in silence is the worst possible strategy. I want to force them to talk so maybe, just maybe, I can get some of my fellow citizens to fall out of love with their Stockholm Syndrome.

    I would disagree that it is a religion in the Western standard view of what a religion is. It is a political system, a system of government, an in depth and detail “guide” for how people are to live their lives (and not hardly only on moral issues). And it is even a public and in writing excuse for pedophiles to take young girls as one, or more, of their wives.

One of the main reasons we need free speech is to be able to identify bigots like Sarsoor and Omar.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Arthur. | February 12, 2019 at 8:45 pm

    Remember, they may be bigots now, but given an opening they would be quite willing to act out violently.

Sorry. Sarsour, not Sarsoor.

i-slam is a murderous beduin death cult.
they should NOT be afforded the dignity of religion.

head choppers, clitorus removers, polygomyous and boy ass pentitraitors (and other living and dead things).

    Since Islam that their followers are superior to everyone else, this in the face of clear evidence that they actually are not, in any way superior. And, Islam teaches them that they should lie, cheat, steal, and murder to promote their disreputable agenda, it should be treated with contempt.

    Islam is not compatible with Western morals and law, in that it claims to have an innate right to impose its brutal law.

    Considering the nature of Islam, it should not be treated as a religion, it is really more like a cult, a cult created by a warlord who murdered, looted and raped his way to power. The nhe had the gall to punish any criticism of himself with death.

    Anyone dumb enough to accept Islam has not place in our society.

They keep pushing it forward….

Remember, they sold that Cuba had great health care, that we should allow creepy men in girls bathrooms and got much of the country to believe that Christians were all foolish goofs (despite being 75%+ of the population). They can sell ice to Eskimos. This is VERY dangerous stuff.

    “They keep pushing it forward…”

    Why not? Fascists have their agenda. In fact, they have had great success in this country: looking back, it is amazing that a sinister fraud like ‘barack hussein obama’ was elected president – twice!

    They have control of our schools, our media, and much of our government. They even have control of the GOPe!

    Why not keep pushing forward??

She is a member of the largest hate group on the planet – muslims. Her opinion and every muslims opinion means as much as David Duke’s.

This vile loathsome human being must be fully exposed as such, then entirely shunned. Her 15 minutes of fame must expire.

To prove she’s not a religious bigot, Sarsour attacks Christians. As my father would have said, she’s as sharp as a matzah ball!

So, one scorpion defends another? Who knew.
