Entries in Linda Sarsour (16)


Murphy spoke to Israel-haters at the Women’s March. Does he regret that now?

Earlier this year – while a young woman in his administration was trying to find justice after she claims she was raped by one of his top appointees – Democrat Governor Phil Murphy trotted on to the stage of the Women’s March in New Jersey. He apparently didn’t care that the group’s founder, Linda Sarsour, called for Jihad against the government of the United States or that she was a fan of Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan.  He also didn’t seem to care that the Women’s March banner was being held by activists opposed to the Jewish State and that they were pushing anti-Israeli propaganda at the event – in front of him.

We thought of this over the weekend, when the Governor put out a press statement on the murders of eleven Jewish worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  That statement triggered a Star-Ledger headline that read:  “Murphy condemns rising anti-Semitism at vigil for Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.”

Condemn it… he’s part of it.  By allowing anti-Israeli propaganda to be part of the gatherings he speaks in front of, the Democrat is normalizing anti-Jewish sentiment by a major political party.  Forget trying to link it to President Trump’s coarse plain-spokenness – this is direct.  The people who would kill the Jewish State get to show up and be part of Democrat Party events and Murphy doesn’t say boo.

At the vigil attended by Murphy, the Governor had the gall to speak against what he himself has done:  "We must find the courage, even through tears and heartbreak, to reverse this trend. We cannot allow the normalization of hatred."  Yes Governor, we agree, so stop!

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said that anti-Semitic incidents had gone up by 32 percent in New Jersey.  Of course they did.  Hating the Jewish state is now mainstream with people like Governor Murphy, the Women’s March, and the Democrat Party. 

Over the summer, Murphy’s close political ally – U.S. Senator Cory Booker – played up to the Hamas/Hezbollah loving Israel-haters – the Antifa wing of the Democrat Party.  After the Pittsburgh massacre, Booker had the gall to put out a press statement that triggered another Star-Ledger headline:  Booker says 'words matter' following attacks against Democrats and Jewish worshippers.


And then there’s Booker’s political ally – Democrat Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver – one of only three legislators to oppose a resolution that prohibited investment of state pension and annuity funds in anti-Jewish companies that boycott Israel or Israeli businesses.  That’s right, Ms. Oliver – Phil Murphy’s running mate and Cory Booker’s political ally – the Lt. Governor of New Jersey, sided with those who hate the Jewish state

The Roll Call vote is below.  Yes, words do matter Cory… and so do actions.

S1923 Aa (1R)  Prohibits investment of pension and annuity funds by State in companies that boycott Israel or Israeli businesses. 



Is Troy Singleton the most corrupt NJ Senator?

Is there anyone as casually corrupt as Senator Troy Singleton?  The first thing you need to know is that Senator Singleton is the former bagman for Assembly Speaker Joe Roberts – who has since retired and moved to a less taxed state than the one he ruled over and made the worst taxed in America.  

After that Singleton picked-up a union job for which he lacked any qualification at all… outside of his political connections.  And when he’s not picking the pockets of blue-collar union workers, Singleton adopts a nonchalance towards political corruption – oozing a partisanship that ignores the worst racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic tendencies within his own party.

Take Linda Sarsour for example.  Senator Singleton has practically crawled up the ass of Sarsour’s organization – the Women’s March – even as it has embraced open racists like Louis Farrahkan.  The Farrahkan movement has long referred to white-skinned people as “Devils” (reserving a particular hatred for women).  

Singleton’s jaws have been quick to flap whenever he has the chance to call a Republican a “racist” – even singling out Country & Western music artists and their fans as “racists”.  But when members of his own party openly behave like racists, Singleton gets a partisan version of lock-jaw.  Maybe he believes that racism towards some is an acceptable form?

As a member of the Assembly Democrats, Singleton was quite comfy with a fellow Democrat Assemblyman who had been convicted of a federal crime and who had been charged with stalking women.  Singleton obviously doesn’t get the #MeToo movement.

And when fellow Democrat Cory Booker came out with some Israel-hatred recently, Senator Singleton’s head merely bobbed in agreement. He can’t quite figure out how to address a subject that involves a fellow partisan like Booker.  What’s up with the normally loud-mouthed, opinionated Singleton? Either he’s too scared, too stupid, or too partisan to publicly disagree with Booker.

Here’s Singleton’s pal Booker, calling for the end to the border wall and other fortifications that protect Israel against terrorists.  This is like calling for a second Holocaust.  It is not enough that Cory Booker’s international allies have driven Jews out of every country they control, now he wants to tear down Israel’s protective barrier and allow them to march in to commence a pogrom of terror, torture, rape, and murder.

And to make matters worse, thanks to the Philadelphia Inquirer, now we know that Booker's fellow Democrat - Bob Menendez - is allowing his campaign to be run by a lobbyist for the foreign government of Qatar, one of the worse anti-Jewish culprits in the world and a government criticized by the United Nations and Amnesty International for its relaxed attitude towards modern slavery - human trafficking and the exploitation of children. 

Perhaps the best way to understand Senator Singleton is the way in which we understand Senator Booker?  That is, to remember Jack Nicholson’s answer to this question…

Stay tuned... 


Did he cover for a Nazi? Democrats placed in bad spot by Malinowski.

When a Republican legislator attended a country music concert last year and was photographed standing in front of the band’s banner, he was excoriated by a long list of Democrats because that band banner incorporated aspects of a “rebel” flag.  The Democrats promptly accused the Republican legislator of being a racist (even though he has African-American family members who quickly came to his defense) and called for his resignation and a boycott of his business (a course of action that caused the Executive Director of the local County Democratic Committee to break with her party and come to the defense of the Republican).

Last week, Democrat U.S. Senator Cory Booker got caught holding up an anti-Israel sign and calling for the destruction of the border security wall that has done so much to reduce the number of terrorist murders of innocent women and children by Islamic extremists.  It was a grossly irresponsible act by the increasingly light-weight, childish Senator.

Now it’s emerged that Democrat Tom Malinowski ran an organization that was decidedly anti-Israel and that employed as one of its top operatives, a guy who is obsessed with the Third Reich.  In a column published in yesterday’s  Times of Israel, journalist Robert Goldberg writes:  “Tom Malinowski Defended Advisor’s Nazi Fetish.”

The author notes how Tom Malinowski ran Human Rights Watch’s Washington, DC, office when it came out that Marc Garlasco, Human Rights Watch’s longtime senior military advisor was “an enthusiastic collector of Nazi memorabilia.”  The column continues:  “Rather than speak out against ‘any sign of anti-Semitism’, Malinowski defended Garlasco, claiming he was just a student of history and that his critics were part ‘of a campaign to deflect attention from Human Rights Watch’s rigorous and detailed reporting on violations of international human rights and humanitarian law by the Israeli government.’”

That’s right Tom, blame the Jews themselves for the anti-Semitism inflicted upon them.  The column continues…

“The website NGO Monitor which was critical of Human Rights Watch for claiming – based on Garlasco’s assessment – Israel was guilty of war crimes during Operation Cast Lead – noted at the time, that collecting Nazi memorabilia in many European countries is illegal. ‘It is banned on many internet sites and from auction houses….The Simon Wiesenthal Center notes it glorifies the horrors of Nazi Germany.'”


GARLASCO’S FLAK-88 MINI COOPER“Garlasco’s screen logo was a picture of a German badge with a swastika.  His screen name on the Nazi memorabilia sites was Flak88, which is a German anti-aircraft gun but also a code for ‘Heil Hitler’ used by neo-Nazis to identify themselves. Though Garlasco likely knew of the dual meaning, NGO Monitor notes, ‘he even used it on his license plate (a practice which is banned in Germany) and as a screen name on websites unrelated to his Nazi collection.’  When he obtained a leather SS jacket Garlasco gushed that it made his ‘blood ran cold.  It is so COOL.’”

“… in September 2007, Garlasco wrote: ‘Need advice. So I am trying to figure out what to do. My book [on Nazi war medals] is clsoe [sic] to done, but I am not sure if I should put my name on it. If folks at work found out I might very well lose my job. That is the reality, so don’t dwell on it – ok? But this is a small group of people – should I worry? And shouldn’t I stand up for myself? And if I use a psyeudonym [sic] isn’t that worse, like I am trying to hide something?’

Garlasco then added, ‘I will talk quietly to some at work that I trust – a small group indeed.’”

“If he did talk to people at HRW in 2007, it means that someone at the organization knew about his fetish two years before he was exposed and did nothing then, as well as in 2009. HRW was, at the time, leading the effort to get the United Nations, Obama administration and Congress to endorse the Goldstone report which concluded Israel had committed war crimes and released several reports urging endorsement.  Garlasco’s claims that Israel deliberately bombed civilians and used incendiary weapons during Operation Cast Lead were cited repeatedly by the report. And Garlasco’s reports – as well as he alleged military expertise —  were being successfully .”

“…Through all this, Malinowski, who had no problem praising Garlasco before the controversy, remained silent.  Garlasco was suspended without pay pending an investigation, if It was ever conducted, has not been discussed publicly.

Malinowski’s behavior during the Garlasco affair not a profile in courage. It was an act of political expediency.  It raises the question of whether Malinowski would have defended  Garlasco was an exuberant collector KKK memorabilia. In either case, the fascination with an evil regime dedicated to killing Jews (and African Americans) is a disturbing fetish that Malinowski and HRW defended as scholarship.”

The author notes that Malinowski’s “actions then and now were inconsistent with his moralizing about running for Congress… But it is consistent with Malinowski’s leadership of HRW when it supported the virulently anti-Semitic Durban Conference on Racism in 2001 and in 2009, which, as the Forward noted, was ‘the blueprint and launching pad for the modern iteration of the boycott movement against Israel, otherwise known as BDS’.”

Author Robert Goldberg closes by asking Tom Malinowski to disclose…

“It is consistent with his leadership in developing and defending the discredited Goldstone Report as well as vigorous efforts to get the world to condemn Israel based on that review. Indeed, it is consistent with Malinowski’s accepting the endorsement of a group that honored Linda Sarsour (an admirer of Louis Farrakhan).

Mr. Malinowski should provide the public with a full and honest explanation of his defense of Garlasco’s Nazi souvenir collection as well as HRW’s campaign against Israel. It’s what any normal, decent person would do.”

Well, well, all you Democrats who lost your ass over that band banner in 2017, what say you now?  Crickets?  Well here’s a heads up, you are not going to get away with saying nothing.  We’re going to get you all on the record on this and on Booker… so beware next time someone comes up to you and says those dreaded words:  “Pardon me…”


ANTIFA and The Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart

By Rubashov

Ever hear of the "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart"?  It was known better as the Berlin Wall.

Today is an anniversary of sorts for the Berlin Wall.  It has been down as long as it was up.  Which tells you something about the perspective of today's Millennials.

The wall was built by the German Democratic Republic in August 1961 and it fell in November 1989, although it wasn't fully demolished until 1992.  The wall was built by self-described "anti-fascist" leftists who feared that their people would "vote with their feet" and leave "paradise" for the "fascist" West.  The wall was designed to keep people in, not out.

140 people died trying to cross the wall, that we know of.  Thousands of others were arrested for making the choice and attempting to leave.  Doubtless, the anti-fascists thought they were torturing them for their own good.

Words bestow a certain righteousness upon those who  take them.  Call yourself an "anti-fascist" and there is no end of mischief that you can justify.  And especially so when your memory does not reach back so far as to remember such things as the "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart." 

Pop a pussy hat on your head, call yourself the "Women's March," and follow a leader like Linda Sarsour -- who calls for an American "Jihad" -- or praise a cop-killer like Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur), a convicted terrorist.  It's all covered by the words.

We're the "Women's March" so we're cool.  Hey, look at the words if you don't believe us.  Just like the "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart" -- now what can be wrong with that?  Just look at the words.  Disagreeing with us makes YOU a fascist!

Curiously, the term ANTIFA is an German language acronym.  It stands for Anti-Faschistische Aktion.  The "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart" when translated into the original German is Antifaschistischer Schutzwall.  Read as originally intended the words do have a different punch, don't they? 

When we speak or write of ANTIFA and its allies, perhaps we should make it a point from now on to discard the acronym and go with the original German:  Anti-Faschistische Aktion.  It lends a certain understanding of who it is that we're dealing with.

Understand too that the idea of showing up and mobbing a local congressional office is a tactic with a lineage that comes out of a darker time.  Those who are into such performance art are purposefully mimicking the mob-based hysteria whipped up by the wannabe authoritarians of the past.  Not only the Women's March, but groups like Action Together, RISE, Indivisible, The Resistance is Now, and Anti-Faschistische Aktion, have all participated in these mob-actions with the idea of overturning the outcome of democratic elections, held in accordance  to agreed upon rules. 

Democrat Party candidates in CD11, CD07, and CD03 have all particpated in these Anti-Faschistische Aktion inspired mob actions, for the purposes of subverting democratic elections.  These mob actions have attracted the support of some very questionable people -- like Women's March co-chair Linda Sarsour, who called for "Jihad" against the government of the United States.  When did being "the loyal opposition" morph into a "resistance movement" bent on breaking the law and undermining the American government?  And what does this say about the character of Mikie Sherrill, Lisa Mandelblatt, Tom Malinowski, and Andrew Kim?

Know who your "friends" are and what they stand for -- because you will be held responsible for those you willingly cavort with.  And keep clear of the Anti-Faschistische Aktion crowd who, when holding up a mirror to themselves, see only fascists. 


Linda Sarsour casts shadow over Murphy speech at Women's March

She's the Steve Bannon of the Left -- an angry, trash-talking Democrat Party political operative with ties to some pretty unsavory people.  But in Linda Sarsour's case, it isn't the Russians we need to worry about, but rather Islamic Jihadists bent on defeating the West and changing America's culture.

Linda Sarsour, the co-founder of the Women's March, was on the front page of many New Jersey newspapers today -- in an Associated Press story, running her mouth about how many allies she intends to get elected to take power in the United States of America.  Her group is being funded so that they can hold a candidate training seminar in Las Vegas. 

Funny thing though, there was no comment from Governor Phil Murphy about the shadow cast by Linda Sarsour over the group he is set to speak before on Saturday.  Democrat congressional candidate Lisa Mandelblatt, an attorney in Westfield, had nothing to say about Sarsour either.  So let's refresh their memories:

Last summer, the New York Times (08/01/17) looked into some of the antics of the Linda Sarsour, co-founder of the Women's March organization:

The Times piece was titled -- "When Progressives Embrace Hate."  Times Editor Bari Weiss noted that the Women's March is connected to some very unsavory people but that groups like the NJEA (the state teachers' union) and Democrats like Governor Phil Murphy and candidate Lisa Mandelblatt don't seem to care.  Weiss wrote:

"The leaders of the Women’s March, arguably the most prominent feminists in the country, have some chilling ideas and associations. Far from erecting the big tent so many had hoped for, the movement they lead has embraced decidedly illiberal causes and cultivated a radical tenor that seems determined to alienate all but the most woke.

Start with Ms. Sarsour, by far the most visible of the quartet of organizers. It turns out that this 'homegirl in a hijab,' as one of many articles about her put it, has a history of disturbing views, as advertised by . . . Linda Sarsour.

There are comments on her Twitter feed of the anti-Zionist sort: 'Nothing is creepier than Zionism,' she wrote in 2012. And, oddly, given her status as a major feminist organizer, there are more than a few that seem to make common cause with anti-feminists, like this from 2015: 'You’ll know when you’re living under Shariah law if suddenly all your loans and credit cards become interest-free. Sound nice, doesn’t it?'  She has dismissed the anti-Islamist feminist Ayaan Hirsi Ali in the most crude and cruel terms, insisting she is 'not a real woman' and confessing that she wishes she could take away Ms. Ali’s vagina — this about a woman who suffered genital mutilation as a girl in Somalia."

Democrats failed to call out Linda Sarsour, the co-founder of the Women's March, even when she advocated for "jihad" against the democratically elected American government.

Yes, the co-founder of the Women's March actually called for "jihad" against the government of the United States of America.  And Democrats have remained politically-correct silent about it.  Instead, Democrat leaders have praised the Women's March and continue to do so -- lending their support to its leadership while American troops are in the field, engaged in a fight against jihadists.  Why have the Democrats and their candidates refused to comment on these threats of "jihad"?

Last year, Linda Sarsour -- a prominent Democrat Party activist and co-founder of the Women's March -- called for a "jihad" against the American government.  You can catch her act here:

Here's what she said:

"During a speech to the Islamic Society of North America convention in Chicago last weekend, Sarsour, a delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention who is an anti-Israel and pro-Sharia activist, made the startling call and also urged against 'assimilation.' 

'I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad,' she said. 'That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or in the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.'

'Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community, it is not to assimilate and please any other people and authority,' she said.

'Our obligation is to our young people, is to our women, to make sure our women are protected in our community. Our top priority and even higher than all those other priorities is to please Allah and only Allah,' she said."

Sarsour started off her call for "jihad" by praising Siraj Wahaj, who she described as her "favorite person in the room."  Wahaj is a controversial New York imam who has attracted the attention of American authorities for years.  Federal prosecutors included him on a 3½-page list of people they said "may be alleged as co-conspirators" in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, though he was never charged, the Associated Press reported.

Since the election of Donald Trump as President, some Democrats appear to have gone completely loopy.  We believe that dissent is an American right, but "dissent" isn't "jihad".  When did the democratic concept of a "loyal opposition" morph into "jihad" -- a "holy war" to be waged by all means necessary?  And why are Democrats and their candidates too afraid to talk about it?

And here is another thing that they are afraid to comment on.   It was reported extensively in the media last year that the Women's March "honored" cop-killer Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur). 

Referring to the notorious cop-killer, who murdered a New Jersey State Trooper in cold blood, as a "revolutionary" whose words "inspire us to keep resisting", the far-left Women' March organization issued a statement "celebrating" Ms. Chesimard's birthday.

The Star-Ledger reported on this:


So did the Save Jersey blog:

Joanne Chesimard, the Black Liberation Army member hiding in Cuba after murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973, has long eluded American justice and vexed New Jersey public officials as well as the public at large.

Donald Trump made headlines in June by spiking the Obama-era Cuba deal and citing the case of Chesimard (a/k/a Assata Shakur) as one of the reasons.

Eyebrows were therefore raised on Sunday when the far-left Women’s March’s social media accounts CELEBRATED the notorious cop-killing fugitive’s birthday:

 “I think you guys accidentally left out the part where she shot a police officer in the face, escaped from prison, then fled to Cuba in this post,” responded one Facebook user.

Why haven't we heard from Democrats like Governor Phil Murphy and candidate Lisa Mandelblatt or the NJEA about this?  Why have they remained silent?

Why don't some Democrats appear to mind associating with radicals calling for "jihad" and cop-killers?  Do they consider these legitimate forms of "dissent"?  We are very interested in hearing what Democrats like Governor Phil Murphy and candidate Lisa Mandelblatt think about all this.
