If you don’t know Linda Sarsour, she’s a major name in the “progressive” movement, and at the forefront of the strange bedfellow alliance of hard leftists and Islamists. She’s the former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York and a hijab-wearing, Palestinian-supporting Muslim activist as well as a Bernie Sanders-supporting co-chair of both the Women’s March and the Day Without A Woman protest. She’s been accused of supporting Hamas and bringing Sharia law to the US, although she denies those accusations. She and her supporters claim that rightwing sources misrepresented her by circulating “fake news” to make her look bad.
Okay, I did the disclaimer. Now, here’s what Linda Sarsour just said, quoted directly in her own words. If this is someone whom the “progressive” movement is willing to embrace as a leader and spokesperson, then decide for yourself whether these are people who should be entrusted within a thousand yards of the levers of US government power.
