Linda Sarsour Gets Democratic Party Social Media “Endorsement”

3121

The Democratic Party Facebook page has posted this, a link to a Cosmo article about women standing up to US President Trump.

And fair enough, right? I mean, it is understandable the Democrats would post an article dealing with opposition to the Republican President they oppose.

The article fawns over this women but none more so than fake feminist Linda Sarsour, who gets two spots – the first as one of the women’s march organizers, and another separate one.



Sarsour gets a special separate mention because after helping to organize the Women’s March (and dealing with Islamaphobic attacks afterward), the activist has been on the front lines in protesting Trump’s immigration ban, protesting at JFK Airport and speaking at a rally in New York City the day after the executive order was signed. She is also the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations challenging the order. Sarsour told Democracy Now that she wanted to “put a public face as an American Muslim on this lawsuit, because we will not allow Donald Trump to get away with this.”

Linda Sarsour’s disturbing views and statements are public record. So the person administering the Democratic Party Facebook page is either living in a bubble or not troubled by things like Sarsour’s advocating for Sharia law, takeaways from 911, or hateful rhetoric towards real feminists.

This kind of thing may be par for the course for women’s magazines like Cosmo and Elle, but I expect better from one of the leading political parties.

I call on Democrat Israellycool readers to lodge your complaints on the Facebook page. The mainstreaming – no, idolization – of someone like Linda Sarsour is not something to be taken lightly.

Note: If the Republican party page posted a link to an article fawning over a similarly, demonstrably problematic individual, I’d make the same call.
