Muslim Activist Linda Sarsour Calls Out Chuck Schumer About “White Men Negotiating on the Backs of People of Color”
“[T]errorism should never be framed as a conversation that should be just had with Muslims in a country where white supremacists have killed more people since 9/11 than Muslims have.” – Linda Sarsour, 2017 Annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) Convention
FoxNews.com reports that
Controversial activist Linda Sarsour issued a warning to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) as Congress debates immigration reform.
“I’m talking to Chuck Schumer,” Sarsour, a co-founder of the Women’s March, said during a rally in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. “I’m tired of white men negotiating on the backs of people of color and communities like ours. We are not bargaining chips. This is not a poker game.”
During the rally branded “A Day of Action Against Trump’s White Supremacy,” Sarsour called President Trump a “fascist” and compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to the Gestapo.
She also expressed support for amnesty — not only for DREAMers but for all of the millions of people in the U.S. illegally.
Tucker Carlson reacted to Sarsour’s comments on his program Thursday night, pointing out that there are now more immigrants in the U.S. than at any point in our country’s history.
“Is America more united than ever before? Is it stronger? Please, it’s just the opposite. And everyone knows it,” Carlson said.
He argued that’s because our “elites” welcome immigrants to America by telling them how horrible the country is and how bigoted its native population is.
“We’re creating a lot of Linda Sarsours. This is a recipe for civil war,” Carlson warned, explaining that large, diverse countries need a reason to stick together.
“Our elites ought to be staying up late night after night every night trying to figure out what that reason is. Why should we hang together? A shared language, a shared culture, a shared set of core beliefs? Pick one. Our ruling class rejects all of those,” Carlson said. “It won’t end well.”
Calling Linda Sarsour “controversial” is the understatement of the century.
That’s like saying that Antifa are “just a bunch of rowdy kids”.
So, exactly who is this Far Left Activist?
I am glad that you asked, gentle readers.
In a January 2017 video explaining that the hijab worn by Muslim women is not by any means a symbol of anti-female oppression, Sarsour said: “When I wasn’t wearing hijab I was just some ordinary white girl from New York City.” In an April 2017 interview, she identified herself as a woman “of color.” Michelle Pfeiffer’s character in the 1995 movie Dangerous Minds, said Sarsour, had inspired her to become a high-school teacher, a profession through which she herself could, in turn, “inspir[e] young people of color like me, to show them their potential.” Sarsour also told the interviewer that although Middle-Easterners are categorized as “white” by the U.S. Census Bureau, being identified as a person “of color” is “important in the political climate that we are in, because it allows for us to understand where we fit in the larger political landscape. We fit in with marginalized groups, who oftentimes are other people of color.”
Sarsour spoke at a CAIR-Georgia fundraising banquet in February 2017, and was the keynote speaker at the annual dinner of CAIR’s Philadelphia chapter on March 11, 2017.
While participating in a “Day Without A Woman” protest in front of Trump Tower in New York City on March 8, 2017, Sarsour was arrested for refusing to comply with a police request that she and her comrades disperse from the vicinity.
In July 2017, Sarsour was a featured speaker at the 54th Annual Convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). She began her speech by thanking her “favorite person in this room … Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who has been a mentor, motivator, and encourager of mine.” She made no mention of Wahhaj’s numerous ties to Islamic terrorism. Also during her address, Sarsour lamented “the potential chaos” that the administration of President Donald Trump would likely inflict “on our community”; stated that “we [Muslims] are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad … but here in the United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House”; and said that “when I wake up in the morning, and I remember who is sitting in the White House, I am outraged.” “I hope,” Sarsour expanded, “that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad.” Counseling against Muslim assimilation into Western culture, Sarsour declared: “Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community. It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority. And our top priority … is to please Allah, and only Allah.”
Also during Sarsour’s speech to ISNA, she made the following remarks:
“Every right-wing media outlet in the country. Every right-wing Zionist outlet in the country engaged in coordinated attacks against me to discredit my leadership,” Sarsour told the 54th Annual Islamic Society of North America Convention.
“There are people and Palestinians and solidarity activists who have been working on the issue of BDS [Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions] for a long time. Because I am privileged to have a platform, I have been able to have our country reckon with this conversation about what does it mean for a Muslim or a Palestinian-American to be part of the resistance, and to be working with allies who are now taking up the cause of BDS.”
“[T]errorism should never be framed as a conversation that should be just had with Muslims in a country where white supremacists have killed more people since 9/11 than Muslims have.”
“We have to get to the root of the problem when it comes to terrorism. The root of the problem doesn’t come from within the Muslim community – it comes from a politicized foreign policy of war on our people.”
In November 2017, Sarsour participated in “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice,” a panel discussion on “how to combat” bigotry against Jews. In the course of the discussion, she said: “If what you’re reading all day long, morning and night, in the Jewish media is that Linda Sarsour and Minister Farrakhan are the existential threats to the Jewish community, something really bad is gonna happen and we gonna miss the mark on it.”
In December 2017, Asmi Fathelbab, a woman who had worked in Sarsour’s Brooklyn office in 2009, stepped forward and claimed that she had been sexually abused by a male in that office during that time. Fathelbab also alleged that when she reported the abuse to Sarsour, the latter bullied her into silence and ridiculed her weight problem. Speaking to The Daily Caller, Fathelbab said that a Muslim man, Majed Seif, who lived in the building where Sarsour’s office was located, would repeatedly rub himself on her body against her will. “He would pin me against the wall and rub his crotch on me,” Fathelbab said. “It was disgusting… You have no idea what it was like to stand up and feel that behind you.” But when Fathelbab told Sarsour about the abuse, Sarsour allegedly called her a “liar” and told her that “something like this didn’t happen to women who looked like me.”
Humble, isn’t she?
And, such a lovely little flower of womanhood.
At one time in the history of our country, what Linda Sarsour does for a living would be called “sedition”. Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order
She is getting paid to stir up the populace and getting paid well, I am sure.
Individuals like Linda Sarsour hate average Americans like us.
They hate the country which we have created through Americans’ sacrifice of blood, sweat, and tears. And, like Obama, they remain determined to “radically change” the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth in order to meet their dreams of a dystopian society where selfishness rules and the Central Government takes care of the individual’s needs from cradle to grave.
The country that Sarsour wants in an amalgamation of Radical Islamic Barbarism and Marxist Oligarchy, were average Americans would continue to sacrifice, but not to make things better for their families. Instead, the country she envisions is one in which average Americans would sacrifice, dedicating their lives to the “good of the State” and for the honor of glory of Allah. Her bitterness toward our Sovereign Nation is etched into her face and drives her entire being.
It must stink to be so miserable all of the time.
Regarding her calling out Chuck U. Schumer, this should be as entertaining as two Professional Wrestling Heels fighting each other.
Or, even better, Joy Behar launching herself over the desk on “The View” and initiating a cat fight with Whoopie Goldberg.
Pass the Popcorn.
