Skip to comments.Linda Sarsour Ignites Twitter Backlash After Calling CNNís Jake Tapper ĎAlt-Rightí
Posted on 07/19/2017 9:18:28 AM PDT by MarvinStinson
Anti-Israel and anti-Donald Trump activist Linda Sarsour earned the collective scorn of Twitter on Tuesday after she accused CNN host Jake Tapper of being a member of the "alt-right."
It all began when Tapper called on Sarsour and the Women's March to renounce their support of Assata Shakur, a convicted cop murderer on the FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorist" list.
Follow Jake Tapper ✔ @jaketapper Shakur is a cop-killer fugitive in Cuba. This, ugly sentiments from @lsarsour & @dykemarchchi ...Any progressives out there condemning this? https://twitter.com/womensmarch/status/886652647582859264 4:09 PM - 18 Jul 2017
Sarsourwho has her own history of defending terroristsdid not take kindly to Tapper's denunciation. In a tweet, she accused Tapper of being a member of the alt-right.
Linda Sarsour ✔ @lsarsour .@jaketapper please share my "ugly" sentiments? Unapologetically Muslim? Unapologetically Palestinian? Pro-immigrant? Pro-justice? Shame. 6:48 PM - 18 Jul 2017
Linda Sarsour ✔ @lsarsour .@jaketapper joins the ranks of the alt-right to target me online. Welcome to the party. 6:34 PM - 18 Jul 2017
There are ample reasons to believe Tapper is not a secret fan of the alt-right. For one, he challenged Trump to denounce David Duke and other white supremacists during the election. For another, Tapper himself is Jewish.
Liberals and conservatives alike mocked Sarsour for the claim.
Kurt Eichenwald ✔ @kurteichenwald I've paid little attention to controversies involving you. But if ur calling @jaketapper alt-right? Not a big credibility boost for u. 8:04 PM - 18 Jul 2017
Camron Jahanshahi @cjahanshahi1 Stop your support for Shakur. Our movement suffers because you are idolozing this person. Apologize and lets move on. 7:16 PM - 18 Jul 2017
Jeffrey Goldberg ✔ @JeffreyGoldberg Yes, @jaketapper is a member of the alt-right. Strong contribution to reasonable, fact-based discourse here: https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 9:31 PM - 18 Jul 2017
Yashar Ali ✔ @yashar Very sad for you to put @jaketapper ,who is Jewish, in same tweet as a group of folks who are anti-semitic. Simply because he criticized you https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 8:42 PM - 18 Jul 2017
Dana Loesch ✔ @DLoesch . @lsarsour says Tapper is "alt-right" because he called out her shaming of a FGM survivor (here: http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/05/linda-sarsours-little-lie-about-her-vile-attack-on-ayaan-hirsi-ali-is-a-big-deal/ ). LOL. https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 7:42 PM - 18 Jul 2017
Sean Illing ✔ @seanilling An objectively stupid tweet. If Tapper is the "alt-right," the term is meaningless. Serious people on the left can't be this dumb. https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 10:25 PM - 18 Jul 2017
(((Yair Rosenberg))) ✔ @Yair_Rosenberg Like I've said before, one does not need to misrepresent Linda Sarsour's words to discredit her disquieting views. She does that herself. https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520

Starting to go after each other.
Sarsour is a nasty piece of work. Telling that the leftist “feminists” have her as a leader. Makes no sense but it is telling.
And her fellow muslim Keith Ellison is protmoted hard by the same Democrat party.
“Telling that the leftist feminists have her as a leader.”
Indeed. It tells me the rabid femenists are no more than self hating morons that really have nothing to say but feel they must expound nonetheleas. To promote that which would see you subjugated or dead is pure idiocy
Thus demonstrating the irony, fallacy, and lies underpinning "feminism".
She raised 100K for a Jewish cemetery that had been vandalized with great fanfare. Only problem is they never received the money. When she was confronted about it, she touted a letter from some woman that claimed to work for the cemetery. Only problem with that is the cemetery owners said she is not now nor ever has been an employee. So now Linda is crying foul just because she got caught.
The problem is it looks like Jake is going to win this one easily. I wish they would both fight to the death and both win.
you can look it up
SCUMBAGS attacking SCUMBAGS. Where’s my popcorn?
The more Jihadi Twat bangs her gums together the better. I like it when the mask comes off America’s enemies; it makes them easier to fight. Look how easy it has become to combat the enemedia since they dropped all pretense of journalistic integrity. There’s only one thing to say to these scum: “Screw you, leftist! Pick a border and leave!”
“more like ‘alt wrong’....”
The rabid anti-Semetic hatred of the Muslim-supporters in the “establishment” elites and massed media now almost equals the vicious hatred by the left establishment of ALL anti-conservative “anything” groups.
Shows you the real power source for today’s Obama-Clinton-Harris “liberals” = Pro-Muslim and radical Muslim groups!
This Sarsour is a real POS in the mold of Obama,Clinton,Warren,Harris etc...and NOTHING will be done about this treasonous,criminal and Koran thumping bitch.
