Meet Democratic Convention Delegate Linda Sarsour, a Brooklyn Girl with Hateful, Islamist Views
When it comes the political left’s favorite Islamists, they have chosen a champion in Linda Sarsour. You may have seen her on a CBS panel of ordinary Muslim Americans. Perhaps you’ve seen her discussing the struggles of fasting on Ramadan in a new Huffington Post video; or, maybe you read the glowing profile of her last year in The New York Times.
Sarsour is the executive director of the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY). She is an activist with political aspirations and she makes it a point to be seen at the events of any and every social justice cause known to man. Recently, she was featured on the cover of the ACLU’s magazine Stand. Her activism even led her to be honored by the White House as a “champion of change.” Because of her close connection to New York Mayor, Bill de Blasio, her organization AAANY was able to secure millions in funding from the Mayor’s Fund.
Recently, Sarsour caused a stir when she announced that she was going to the Democratic National Convention as an at-large delegate and couldn’t decide if she was “going to behave or not.” In an interview with Politico, Sarsour explained that “not behaving is protesting” and that “the onus is on the party to make sure our voices are heard.”
Who is the real Linda Sarsour, and what views does she “voice” that need to be heard? Here are a few things the journalists writing glowing reviews of Sarsour kept out of their articles.
