She's the Al Sharpton of Arab America

Reader comment on item: Popping Linda Sarsour's Balloon

Submitted by Dave (United States), May 14, 2016 at 20:46

Linda Sarsour is a clueless demagogue who knows how to exploit the media's weakness for a self-styled underdog with an alluring public persona. Haven't we seen this before? Credit Al Sharpton for being the pioneer who created the template. In lieu of serious soul-searching and constructive criticism we have slogans and catch-phrases designed to promote an image of the Evil Infidel persecuting the Helpless Muslim. Never mind the widespread Arab cruelty and exploitation of the "Palestinians", just keep pointing the finger at the Zionists and the West. And just in case there are no victims available, you can always invent them, a la Tawana Brawley.

Her mission is not genuine concern, but hatred and self-promotion.
