THE TROUBLES OF LINDA SARSOUR
When Jew-Hate and financial improprieties come with a cost.
Linda Sarsour has had a good run. Over the years, she’s raked in a lot of money and hobnobbed with the Hollywood elite but the media savvy, narcissistic anti-Semite, who never missed an opportunity to thrust herself into the limelight, is now watching as her former allies are distancing themselves from her like rats jumping from a sinking ship. Sarsour has become toxic.
First, it was actress Alyssa Milano, who announced that she would no longer speak at Women’s March rallies headed by Sarsour and her xenophobic cohorts, Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory until the troika unequivocally condemned anti-Semitic and homophobic comments made by Nation of Islam head, Louis Farrakhan. Then Sarsour was dealt a second blow when “Will & Grace” star Debra Messing voiced support for Milano’s stance tweeting, “I stand with you @Alyssa_Milano.”
Sarsour is extremely sensitive to public criticism especially when it emanates from prominent quarters. Last year, CNN’s Jake Tapper called out Sarsour on her vocal support for a cop killer. Sarsour’s unhinged response was to accuse Tapper of being a member of the alt-right.
The instant Milano-Messing one-two combination proved too much to bear for Sarsour whose raison d’être, aside from spreading Jew-hatred, is to consort with the rich and famous by falsely wrapping herself in the flag of progressivism. On November 8, the Women’s March released a pathetically weak statement which merely stated that they do not “endorse” Farrakhan’s comments on women, Jews and members of the LGBTQ communities. The statement concluded by going into deflect mode, blaming the racism on the Republican Party and Trump.
