New Dem reps have close relationship with anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, but we’re not supposed to notice

It seems no one celebrated the election of the first two Muslim women to Congress more than highly controversial Linda Sarsour.

The Palestinian American activist and co-organizer of the feminist Women’s March on DC was invited to attend the swearing-in ceremonies of one of the women, fellow Palestinian American Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. Tlaib being the Democratic lawmaker who called President Donald Trump a “mother f–ker” her very first day in office.

Sarsour is considered a fierce anti-Semite, with rocker Courtney Love going so far as to call her an “anti-Semitic terrorist” in a series of tweets — a display of a map in Tlaib’s office showing a “slight alteration” to Israel may convince you that the newly elected congresswoman shares Sarsour’s attitude.

Jon Levine, the media editor of The Wrap, tweeted a pair of photos highlighting Sarsour’s relationship with Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

(Omar, a Somali American seen by many as an anti-Semite, is no stranger to controversy, having faced an allegation that she married her brother.)

He followed that tweet up with a second linking to a Daily Caller article on Sarsour, saying: “Remember when Linda Sarsour was accused by another woman ON THE RECORD of covering up a sexual assault allegation while she was executive director of the Arab American Association.”

Levine then shared the end result of calling attention to the rank hypocrisy — being blocked by Sarsour.

The Daily Caller reported in Dec 2017 that Sarsour was accused of enabling the alleged sexual assault and harassment of a woman who worked for her when she was executive director of the Arab American Association.

As the Democratic Party drifts further left, with radicals and socialists slowly becoming the norm and anti-Israeli attitudes no longer being disguised, social media uses didn’t mince their words in reacting.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
