At Houston’s Islamic Society of North America conference — the biggest annual meet-up of Muslims in the U.S. — lightning rod radical Linda Sarsour charged her fellow Islamists with making sure not to mistake Jews for human beings.
Sarsour is, of course, a darling of the Left, having earned an arrest Tuesday for her interruption of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing (please see my article here). Most ridiculously, perhaps, the defender of Sharia law paradoxically led 2017 and 2018’s anti-Trump Womens March.
@LaRebelleFleur shariah law is reasonable and once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics

May I just say…What the frick?
From the stage earlier this week, Linda excoriated President Trump’s so-called Muslim ban (which wasn’t) and warned the audience of the threat of Islamophobia.
Introduced by ISNA president as “the most famous, known activist in America today,” Sarsour chided the crowd:
“You as an American Muslim are complicit in the occupation of Palestinians, in the murder of Palestinian protesters. 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.”
Like Colin Kaepernick, she wasn’t playing.
The extremist spoke of the evils of “the oppressor,” which would be the Jews, or, at least, Israelis. Furthermore, she insisted American Muslims must not, under any circumstance, dare portray them as human:
“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.”
Sarsour hailed herself as a hero, fighting for all Americans’ rights (Except Jews? Except Donald Trump? Except Republicans? Except Conservatives?):
“When I stand up here and I’m fighting for your rights and the rights of all people in these United States of America, I am a true patriot. And those of you who have fear in your hearts and don’t have the courage to stand up for your deen (religion), for your communities, for your religious institutions, for your children, that is not just a question of your patriotism. It is a question of your iman (faith).”
She definitely isn’t fighting for the rights of anti-Islamic Lebanese-American journalist Brigitte Gabriel or Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali; Linda doesn’t even believe they have an American right to genitals:
Among Sarsour’s fans are Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison:

And why wouldn’t they love her? According to HuffPost, “Linda Sarsour’s Intersectional Mantra Is One We Need To Live By.”
What’s the intersection? Of Religion and Intolerance?
Maybe so. Look out — it’s the site of a lot of wrecks. Check out the pile up below:
