Linda Sarsour’s “hurricane relief fund” ISN’T helping who you think it is

It boggles the mind why Muslim activist Linda Sarsour has emerged as a feminist icon, but following her role in organizing the anti-Trump “Women’s March,” she’s become just that.

A bizarre label for sure, given that she continuously defends Sharia law, and has called for women with whom she disagrees to have their bodies mutilated.

Certainly, someone as devoted to her religion as she is familiar with the concept of “taquiya,” that is, situations  under Sharia Law under which it’s acceptable to lie (to nonbelievers, of course). In her case, it apparently extends to lying for political gain, because you’ll notice something curious if you read the fine print in the alleged Harvey Hurricane relief charity she promotes on her twitter account.

Follow the link, and you’ll be brought to a page asking you to donate to the “Hurricane Harvey Community Relief Fund.” The site even makes it sound like the money will go directly to those affected in Texas, stating that “your donation is vital to ensuring that we have the resources we need to organize and fight for Texans devastated by Hurricane Harvey.”

Note that this alleged charity was set up by the Texas Organizing Project Education Fund. And who are they? A group that fund-raises to bankroll leftist groups, of course!

Even the promotion of their fund contradicts the claim on the fundraiser itself that the money will be used to help anyone in Texas.

It won’t. It’ll be used to “organize” for them.

Needless to say, donors quickly realized what the “charity” they were being asked to help truly was, and it didn’t go over well for Linda.

Is it even possible for Linda to sink any lower? Who knows what tomorrow will have in store.
