The resolution, initially launched as a rebuke exclusively against anti-Semitism following remarks made by Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, was later broadened to include all forms of bigotry. Sarsour in her video took credit for convincing House Democratic leadership for “expanding the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry.”
Women’s March co-chair Linda Sarsour attacked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi Monday night as a “typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men,” in response to a House resolution condemning anti-Semitism.
House Democrats announced the resolution Monday after Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s latest anti-Israel comments, which critics — including other Democrats — have denounced as anti-Semitic.
By American standards, Domineque Hakim Marcelle Ray was a monster. But by the standards of Mohammed, who raped and killed countless people, Ray was a moderate. So why wouldn’t Linda Sarsour fundraise for this monster?
Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour released a statement Tuesday apologizing on behalf of her organization for “causing a lot of harm and pain” to its Jewish members and for not expressing the movement’s commitment to fighting anti-Semitism.
Teresa Shook, the original founder of the Women’s March, posted a statement on Facebook Monday afternoon, calling on Muslim activist Linda Sarsour and other co-founders to step down, over their “anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric.”
In an interview with The Advocate, a gay community magazine, Milano condemned Women’s March organizers Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory for supporting Louis Farrakhan. The Nation of Islam leader has routinely made misogynistic, homophobic, and anti-Semitic comments. “Any time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. I’m disappointed in the leadership of the Women’s March that they haven’t done it adequately,” Milano said.
Eleven Jews were killed because they were Jews, gathered for Shabbat services at the Tree of Life synagogue. Four Pittsburgh law enforcement officers were wounded as they raced toward the gunfire and prevented the tragedy from being even greater.
But one person’s statements of grief and solidarity stand out, largely because it contrasts a long record of sowing enmity and anti-Semitism. There was a vigil Sunday outside the White House. The national Women’s March made sure to post an image of national co-chair Linda Sarsour, microphone in hand, speaking in love and solidarity with American Jews.
New York resident Linda Sarsour may be a darling of the progressive movement south of the border, but her impending presence at a Muslim community convention on Oct. 6 has prompted calls for organizers to dis-invite her and has led to at least two online petitions, one of which calls for her to be banned from entering Canada.
What happens when a journalist “exposes” a document ostensibly produced by a secretive organization which had supposedly engaged in clandestine means and then it emerges that the document was produced by another organization? And what happens when it turns out that the organization that really did produce the document did so entirely by scouring open sources and then published the document online for all to see? The journalist’s cloak-and-dagger scoop deflates into a total non-story.
Multiple journalists, activists, and former Obama administration officials spread blatant falsehoods during Memorial Day weekend aimed at smearing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Trump administration.
Shaun King, Linda Sarsour and other liberals thought they were criticizing the Trump administration on Sunday when they tweeted a picture of immigrant minors sleeping in a caged enclosure, but it turned out they were inadvertently tweeting a photo that occurred during the Obama administration instead.
