Women’s March Leader and Democrat activist Linda Sarsour was arrested for civil disobedience during the Senate confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Sarsour, a Muslim, is a strong supporter of Palestine and has been known to take radical positions that border on blatant anti-semitism.
She just got some very bad news.
The founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, is calling on Sarsour to step down for her anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks.
“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).
Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”
According to a report, Sarsour wants people to stop “humanizing” Jews.
From Daily Wire:
Far-left Islamic activist Linda Sarsour made strong anti-Semitic remarks during a speech this month at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas — calling for the dehumanization of Israelis.
The Algemeiner reported that Sarsour shamed Muslims for not being more politically active and said that if Muslims are not promoting the Palestinian cause then they are part of the problem, saying, “you as an American Muslim are complicit in the occupation of Palestinians, in the murder of Palestinian protesters.”
Sarsour: “So when we start debating in the Muslim community about Palestine, it tells me a lot about you and about the type of faith that you have in your heart. If you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor, then that’s a problem sisters and brothers, and we got to be able to say: That is not the position of the Muslim American community.“
More on Sarsour, who recently led a vigil for the 11 slain Pittsburgh Jews.
The Daily Wire reported this oddity Monday as the Women’s March held a vigil outside the White House to protest anti-Semitism.
At the forefront was Linda Sarsour, a radical leftist with strong, troubling ties to Islamist terrorist organizations — who considers Israel an “apartheid” state. (She’s holding the microphone in the picture below.)

Will the top dogs in the Democrat Party, such as Sen. Chuck Schumer, himself a Jew, call out Sarsour?
