Linda Sarsour is perhaps the most repulsive, bigoted and hateful person in American public life. Live in Minnesota and don’t know who she is? That’s because our dishonest local media have made it a point not to write about her. I’ve said this on Twitter for more than a year; you can look it up. I don’t mean they downplay her or do a trademark “one and done” piece. They ignore her entirely even as she has become a national story due to her hatred and bigotry
Recently, DFL Rep. Ilhan Omar posted pictures of herself with this odious creature, positively glowing about the fact. They were attending a MOVE conference in November in Dearborn, Michigan, designed to “empower” Arab-Americans. Because local media gives both of these women a pass, there are few Minnesota outlets that cover the truth concerning them. Alpha News is one of them: factually as news stories on the news side and here, on the opinion side.

Sarsour is an “American” of Palestinian descent who became well known due to her involvement in the Women’s March earlier this year. Her star, however, had been rising on the racist, anti-semitic far left for some time before then.
In July she called on Muslims not to assimilate and to wage jihad against President Trump. She is an unapologetic advocate for sharia law (say her name to the next brain dead liberal who mocks you about sharia in America when they say no one supports it here). The Guardian tweeted Sarsour “was a vocal surrogate for Bernie Sanders during the 2016 primary and a DNC delegate.”
“Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community, it is not to assimilate and please any other people and authority,” she has said. By authority Sarsour means the secular rule of law. Her authority is Allah, a moon god before Mohammed. Point this out, too, when people say anyone who lands in America automatically shares American values. They do not and some make their divisiveness a point of pride. Surrendering to these bullies is how much of Western Europe lost its culture and with it, its future. Sarsour’s entire remarks are on YouTube. See for yourself. It’s not like you’ll find this reported in Minnesota media.
Nor was this was an isolated performance. In 2014 she tweeted: “10 weeks of PAID maternity leave in Saudi Arabia. Yes PAID. And ur worrying about women driving. Puts us to shame.” For a country for which she urges her coreligionists to avoid joining, it is unclear to whom the “us” refers.
Her sick soul was revealed when she tweeted that Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel should have their vaginas removed and this was in 2011. When people tell you who they are, believe them. Isn’t that the saying? Sarsour said: “Brigitte=Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She’s asking for an a$$ whippin. I wish I could take their vaginas away–they don’t deserve to be women.”
Sarsour later deleted the tweet and denied it had ever come from her account. When she was confronted with a question challenging her, she said that it was a lie, the questioner was a white male, hence suspect, and this was all part of her persecution by reactionary forces. It’s all right here, a wonder the Wrong Think Police at YouTube haven’t removed it.
Hirsi Ali, the bravest person on the planet, responded, saying Sarsour “is a defender of sharia law. And the principle of sharia law, there’s no principle that demeans, degrades and dehumanizes women more than the principle of sharia law.”
“Linda Sarsour is not a defender of universal human rights. She is a defender of sharia law.” Don’t take my word, watch Ayaan herself say it.
When a Jewish cemetery was vandalized, Sarsour stepped up to, yes, fundraise for the repairs. The only problem was no one who could do that work received any of the money raised. Sarsour played the victim card. Maybe Muslim populace in many Muslim lands fall for this sort of lie, but not most Americans.
As for her manifest hatred of the Jews, the evidence is overwhelming and from her own mouth. Just a couple of days ago, she blamed “Jewish media” for her reputation.

All of which leads to the question Minnesota media won’t ask of the Islamists’ Barbie doll Ilhan Omar: do you agree with any of this? Why then pose with Sarsour? What do you disavow?
To take a page out of the playbook of our local Regressive Left media: by posing with Sarsour, Omar wants to impose sharia law in America and take away the vaginas of Hirsi Ali & Gabrielle.
Why aren’t these same rules applied to her as they would be were the tables turned and, say, Kurt Daudt posed with David Duke?
Because Minnesota media are shills for Islamists, for the most backward religion on earth and with whom native Minnesotans are expected to adjust, not the other way around.
Did you know that Mohammed said hell was populated mostly by women?
Where are the signs in Muslim yards wishing Christians a Merry Christmas? They don’t exist because the backward religion to which they’re held captive upon pain of death for leaving does not allow it. Haram. “One way multiculturalism,” said the late Christopher Hitchens.
And so it is here. What is happening in reality is not reflected in the media that purports to deliver news to us, with much praise among themselves for doing so.
No, Minnesota media are propagandists and for the low esteem, if not outright contempt, in which they are held, they have no one to blame but themselves.
When alien people who have nothing to do with America, who come from failed cultures and bring their seventh century conflicts with them, and who publicly declare they wish not to become part of us, are forced upon Minnesotans, who say and think what Sarsour & Omar do, it’s time to admit the bigots are not among the natives but the invaders.
