I know some of you are probably wondering why we talk about figures like Linda Sarsour. Trust me. I’ve heard it before. “If you guys would stop writing about *insert person here*, they would get WAY less exposure and slip into oblivion.”
I disagree. I believe it’s irresponsible to willingly ignore prominent figures who are attempting to radically change our society. We have a moral responsibility to call them out.
That brings me back to Sarsour. She’s a terrorist-sympathizing leader of the #MeToo movement. She was also recently arrested for acting like a deranged lunatic at Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing.

She’s the absolute worst. Need another example? I have one.
She recently gave a speech at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas and berated Muslims who “humanize” Jews.
“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,” Sarsour said. “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.”
You heard her. That came straight out of her mouth. Humanizing Jews– who are doing nothing more than DEFENDING THEIR RIGHT TO EXIST– is “not the position of the Muslim American community.”
And again– Sarsour isn’t some random individual screaming from a corner. She’s wholeheartedly embraced by up-and-coming candidates on the left.
Our future is a shared responsibility.
This woman putting it all on the line for healthcare, women & LGBT+ rights is @lsarsour.
The far right constantly maligns her w/ false attacks + threats of violence.
Yet here she is, as always, fighting for everything our flag represents. https://t.co/QR4rYnclLt

She should really ask Sarsour how she feels about hurling gays off rooftops. That’d be an interesting conversation.
