Does the DNC officially endorse Sharia law now? Sure looks like it

On Saturday, Michael Blake, vice-chairman of the Democrat Party, issued a threatening tweet against those — presumably Republicans — who “keep coming” after sharia apologist Linda Sarsour, warning that “we’re going to respond directly, consistently, with all heart & soul.”

The tweet sparked more than a little bit of mockery, prompting Twitchy to write:

Uh-oh y’all, Democrats are gettin’ all tough up in here. It would seem the Vice-Chair of the Democratic Party is threatening Americans (guessing Republicans in particular) who ‘keep coming after Linda Sarsour,’ with a direct response.

What are they gonna do? Throw glitter at us?

Twitter users didn’t take too kindly to Blake either:

Good question. Don’t hold your breath waiting for Blake to answer, though.

Twitchy added:

We’re not entirely sure what Michael thinks he’s doing, does he really think he can intimidate conservatives? Republicans? Trump supporters? Sarsour is a threat and we intend to keep saying it …

So in other words, come get some.

Twitchy also correctly observed that “just last week they were telling pro-life Democrats to get out of their party.”

Do Democrats now openly support Sharia law and the Islamization of America? Sure looks like they do.

So who, exactly, is Linda Sarsour?

In 2012, the Investigative Project on Terrorism noted:

An Islamist activist honored by the White House last December as a “Champion of Change” called Zionism “racism” this week and said “nothing is creepier” than the belief in a Jewish homeland.

Linda Sarsour also posted two links on her Twitter feed to a rabidly anti-Israel video by a New York poet that accuses Israel of ethnic cleansing and mocks interfaith dialogue as selling out.

Sarsour has been invited to at least seven White House meetings since April 2010, records show. All but one were with Paul Monteiro, associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. The most recent meeting took place seven months ago. Last week, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reported on hundreds of White House meetings involving radical Islamists like Sarsour.

Sarsour, director of the Arab American Association of New York, is on record defending terror suspects, casting skepticism over law enforcement investigations and advancing conspiracy theories. Despite her access to the administration, Sarsour describes support for President Obama as a “lesser of two evils” proposition for Muslim voters.

She also believes there is a government conspiracy against Muslims and that the authorities were behind Malcolm X’s assassination. During a Feb. 23, 2012 interview with Russia TV, Sarsour claimed that “Islamophobia” today is a continuation of the genocide of native Americans and the slavery of African Americans. “This has happened throughout the history of our country; our country was based on, you know, genocide on native Americans, based on slavery, racial profiling has existed for centuries in this community,” she said.

Daniel Pipes also wrote a very lengthy and comprehensive article on Sarsour that is well worth checking out.  The post, first published in 2010, has been updated many times since, with this published on February 1, 2017:

As Sarsour’s profile rises, so does her memorably vulgar and vicious tweet of Mar. 8, 2011 (“Brigitte Gabriel= Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She’s asking 4 an a$$ whippin’. I wish I could take their vaginas away – they don’t deserve to be women”). Today, Hirsi Ali addressed it on television. In a dignified and serious way, she accused Sarsour of being a “fake feminist” who apologizes for Shar’i laws that oppress women. It’s a brilliant performance that deserves watching.

And this is who the vice-chairman of the Democrat Party is defending. Wonderful.
