Democrats think these two are a pair of aces, but in reality, they are really just a couple of jokers. Anti-Isreal jokers at that. The two anti-Semites were appearing at a conference sponsored by the Universal Muslim Association of America.
(UMAA) Sarsour says that the success of Cortez is a positive thing for the Muslim community and gives them hope. That kind of worries me. I am just happy that neither party as a whole is taking Cortez seriously.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be speaking at an event with Linda Sarsour. It’s hosted by UMAA, The Universal Muslim Association of America. In one of UMAA’s promotional videos it shows 100% all women wear in hijab, even some young girls, and they segregate the men and women. ”

Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t hide her hatred towards Israel, but fumbled answers on the subject and admitted that she’s “not the expert on geopolitics on this issue.” From The Times of Israel:
“The lens through which I saw this incident, as an activist, as an organizer – if 60 people were killed in Ferguson, Missouri, if 60 people were killed in the South Bronx, unarmed, if 60 people were killed in Puerto Rico – I just look at that [Gaza] incident more through just, as an incident, and to me, it would just be completely unacceptable if that happened on our shores,” she said.
“Of course the dynamics there, in terms of geopolitics … is very different than people expressing their First Amendment right to protest,” Hoover replied.
AMY GOODMAN: In a moment, we’re going to talk about the travel ban, but Linda Sarsour is with us, director of the first Muslim online organizing platform, MPower Change. You supported Alexandria. This is a remarkable moment.
LINDA SARSOUR: I mean, in light of such horrible news yesterday with the travel ban and the Muslim ban, Alexandria is the hope that we’ve been waiting for. She is a young woman of color. She’s Puerto Rican. She’s a Socialist, just like me. We are both card-carrying DSA members. And she’s pro-Palestine, and she’s unapologetic. And the movement right now is elated, because this is what you’re going to see, Amy, in this election season. It’s a new day, a new generation. And Alexandria is what represents us and our values.
Maybe I’m missing something, but is an endorsement from Linda Sarsour a positive thing? I think not. On the other hand once you have reached the depths that Cortez has reached, everything else is up.
