As we reported last week, left-wing activist Linda Sarsour told an All-Muslim audience to wage “Jihad” against President Trump. Now just days later she is doubling down on those remarks, saying that she “Should be free to share and discuss scripture and teachings of my beloved Prophet”
(So…waging “Jihad” on a sitting American President is your idea of a “teaching” of your prophet? Got it…)
In a column published by the Washington Post titled “Islamaphobes Are Attacking Me Because I’m Their Worst Nightmare,”, Sarsour defended her calls for “jihad,” accusing conservatives of manipulating her usage of the term.
“I was speaking to an all-Muslim audience; as an American, I should be free to share and discuss scripture and teachings of my beloved Prophet,” said Sarsour. “Most disturbing about this recent defamation campaign is how it is focused on demonizing the legitimate yet widely misunderstood Islamic term I used, ‘jihad,’ which to majority of Muslims and according to religious scholars means ‘struggle’ or ‘to strive for.'”
The liberal activist then blamed the “conservative media”, saying that republicans and “xenophobes” were actively working to silence her voice.
“Nevertheless, the attacks from xenophobes and the conservative media have continued. It saddens me deeply that my three children are frightened. It angers me that I have to think about securing my physical safety even while walking through the neighborhoods of Brooklyn,” she added.
Instead of owning up to the fact that she is spewing violent rhetoric, she is dodging her way around the subject (as most liberals do).
If you missed her violent comments, here they are again:
