*Update: This headline has been corrected to show that the organization Sarsour was soliciting to, was not her own.
Muslim activist and hero of #TheResistance, Linda Sarsour shamelessly used the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey to solicit funds for a left-wing political organization, and social media let her have it.
“Donate to the #Harvey Hurricane Relief Fund,” she tweeted with a link to the Texas Organizing Project.
Donate to the #Harvey Hurricane Relief Fund. https://t.co/nkFbwgGWDH

And clicking on the link brings you to a page that describes what the funds are to be used for.
Rebuilding in areas impacted by Harvey will be most challenging for marginalized communities. Nearly a quarter of Houstonians live in poverty, approximately 550,000 people, and there are about 575,000 immigrants in the Houston metro area. We will work to ensure that Harvey’s most vulnerable victims have access to critical services from first response and basic needs to healthcare, housing and transportation.
Together we will organize and advocate for our devastated communities, shining a spotlight on inequalities that emerge in the restoration of lives, livelihoods, and homes, amplifying the needs of hard-hit communities, and providing legal assistance for residents wrongfully denied government support.
They will use the funds to rabble rouse and complain that minorities aren’t getting enough help. They won’t actually do anything to help anyone rebuild from this devastating hurricane.
And wait until you see who Sarsour went on to blame for the fact that she got attacked on social media like this.
This is a scam to raise cash for a group that only exists to run left-wing GOTV operations. https://t.co/mkIzZxPZ7u

Terrorist sympathizing grifter is using #HurricaneHarvey to solicit donations for a far left radical organization. Possibly criminal. https://t.co/sZ7eE1fV0l

Did Sarsour see the error of her ways, now that she might be facing criminal charges?
No. She blamed the alt-right because, why not?
“Alt-right” must have sent out an email blast. My mentions are on steroids.
— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) August 30, 2017
And she was hit again.
Your mentions are on steroids because you’re a scumbag. Does that clear it up? https://t.co/Qym1S9pHR4

No, just normal people who know a con artist when they see one.

You tried to raise money for a PAC by saying it was for Harvey relief. Idiot
— Rob Eno (@Robeno) August 30, 2017
Big difference between a PAC and an actual charity. And most of us calling you out aren’t alt-right. We just see through your lies.
