This is a perfect example of the left’s hypocrisy. While Ann Coulter and other conservatives are barred from speaking on college campuses. Linda Sarsour will be giving the commencement speech at taxpayer funded City University of New York.
The FOX News Insider reports:
Sharia Law Advocate to Give Commencement Speech at Taxpayer-Funded University
There’s been some controversy after the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health announced a pro-Palestinian Sharia Law advocate will serve as the school’s commencement speaker.
“I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater,” said Barbara Aaron, chief of staff to the school’s dean, Ayman El-Mohandes.
Now, some, including state Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), are saying that Sarsour’s activisim and beliefs make her unfit to serve as speaker at the taxpayer-funded university’s commencement.
“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists,” Hikind said. “She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing.”
Look at these tweets from Sarsour:

You'll know when you're living under Sharia Law if suddenly all your loans & credit cards become interest free. Sound nice, doesn't it?

People at Berkeley rioted in February when Milo Yiannopoulos spoke there.
This woman will speak at a taxpayer funded university and no one will say a thing.
