Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour spoke at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention and called for Jihad against Trump and his administration. Is the left really comfortable with this type of talk? Do they have any idea how bad this looks to most Americans?
Here’s a partial transcript via Real Clear Politics:
Linda Sarsour Asks Muslims To Form “Jihad” Against Trump, Not To Assimilate
“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. 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,” Sarsour said.
“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,” Sarsour declared.

Dear Baby Jesus,
Please let Democrats go all in on the "well actually, jihad is not a bad thing" talking point.

Linda Sarsour calling for jihad in America is the best thing that happened to Trump's travel ban https://t.co/NXZLNK3OTk

I almost expect the Democrats to put some kind of language supporting Jihad in their party platform. Just completely clueless.
