#MeToo Founder Alyssa Milano Wonít Join Womenís March Over Linda Sarsourís Participation
Algemeiner ^ | November 8, 2018 | David Israel

Posted on 11/08/2018 5:14:00 AM PST by SJackson

Actress and liberal activist Alyssa Milano, whose credits include Who’s the Boss?, Melrose Place, Charmed, My Name is Earl, Mistresses, and Insatiable, and who in 2017 re-launched #MeToo movement, announced last week that she won’t be taking part in the next Women’s March because anti-Zionist, Islamist activist Linda Sarsour is, The Advocate reported.

Milano became aware of Sarsour’s caustic influence on liberal women’s politics when she was a panelist at a political event in Los Angeles last month and was challenged by rightwing reporter Laura Loomer: “You are friends with Linda Sarsour, and both of you ladies have positioned yourselves as speakers and representatives of the #MeToo movement. […] I want to ask you right now to disavow Linda Sarsour because she is a supporter of Sharia law. And under Sharia law, women are oppressed, women are forced to wear a hijab.” Advertisement

Loomer continued: “My question is, will you please disavow her because she is advocating for Sharia law?”

Milano denied the charge, saying, “She’s not. But thank you so much for your question.”

Eventually, Loomer was escorted out of the event, and later posted a story calling Milano “liar and fraud.”

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Linda Sarsour is the child of Arab immigrants from Judea and Samaria. She has been condemned for praising Rasmea Odeh, who in 1969 murdered two Israeli civilians in a bombing. She used vile, pornographic language in attacking Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel. She is also a zealous supporter of the BDS movement.

But Milano did end up disavowing Sarsour, not so much for the Sharia and the hijab, but over her support for Nation of Islam hatemonger Louis Farrakhan.

Referring to the refusal of Women’s March leaders to condemn Farrakhan’s recent anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks (Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory sat in the audience when Farrakhan declared: “The powerful Jews are my enemy.”) Milano told The Advocate: “Any time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. […] I’m disappointed in the leadership of the Women’s March that they haven’t done it adequately.”

Linda Sarsour defended Mallory on her Facebook page, accusing her detractor of “trashing a strong black woman and holding her accountable for the words of a man is not the way to bring people together.”

Milano is determined not to speak at the next Women’s March if Sarsour or Mallory are invited to the podium.

“I would say no at this point. Unfortunate that none of them have come forward against him at this point. Or even given a really good reason why to support them,” she said.

Ms. Milano, sharia isn't the only thing Sarsour supports. From last year...

It’s been known a hell of a lot longer than “last month”, maybe she should pay more attention to issues

Milano is one useful idiot that might have awakened to the evil of Sharia pushing bastards. This is a good start.

This could get interesting. Maybe Alyssa is starting to get a glimmer of what the left is really postulating: their foundational hatred of Israel.

What about Women's March Leader and Marxist Angela Davis of the CPUSA?

Marxist regimes killed over 100 million people in the 20th Century and hey; probably 10s of millions of them were women. What's up with that, Alyssa Milano? Are you a radical Marxist like Angela Davis?

It's about time one of them realize that left nut activists are actually toxic to each others causes.

Like most liberals, she formed her very strong opinions about things before bothering to learn about them. I’ll give her a nugget of credit for at least learning something new rather than digging in to a bad position.

what did Alyssa Milano have to say about Keith Ellison, who abused his girlfriend, but was elected as MN’s Attorney General? Did she speak out against him?

Will she also publicly denounce the Chicago gay pride movement?

Alyssa Milano can be surprisingly tone-deaf when she so chooses to. It is not as if Linda Sarsour were a completely unknown quantity, she has been vitriolic in both her defense of Islam and female privilege. This pairing of attitudes approaches an oxymoron, as Islam DEMANDS the female of the human species be subservient and totally obedient to the Sacred And Nearly Demented Noble Islamic Gentlemen Given Exceptional Respect.

In fact, if she had not already undergone the procedure, Linda Sarsour would demand that FGM be performed on herself, without anesthesia, just to prove she is the obedient and subservient.

And to prove she is “tough”, thus shaming all other Islamic women into following that example.

A don't care a wit what that wrinkled old cow Milano with the fake boobs thinks or does.

It is rather amusing that she's been rubbin' cheeks with these Nation of Islam supporters and pretends she didn't know about their beliefs until now? Hard to believe, much like anything else that comes out of her mouth.

Linda Sarsour praised Imam Siraj Wahhaj — the Radical Islamist linked to the World Trade Center Bombing ( Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the notorious “blind sheikh” ) and the father of the Taos, NM Muslim terrorist..

Sarsour said her favorite person / mentor is Imam Siraj Wahhaj.

“trashing a strong black woman and holding her accountable for the words of a man is not the way to bring people together.”

The hatred is strong in this one.
