CAIR Cries Foul After Biden Campaign Distances Itself From Radical Leftist Linda Sarsour

Leftists and just plain authoritarians are pure comedy gold — when they’re not trying to be funny. Think about it. How out of your mind do you have to be to have a back and forth over far-left, radical activist Linda Sarsour? It would be even more funny if it weren’t true.

Sarsour, the former co-leader of the Women’s March, is such a polarizing figure that former vice president Joe Biden’s campaign distanced itself from the 40-year-old. CNN’s Jake Tapper quoted Biden’s Director of Rapid Response Andrew Bates in a tweet thread on Tuesday.

“Joe Biden has been a strong supporter of Israel and a vehement opponent of anti-Semitism his entire life, and he obviously condemns her views and opposes BDS, as does the Democratic platform,” Bates said, according to Tapper. “She [Sarsour] has no role in the Biden campaign whatsoever.”

Before Biden became the lone wolf for the Democrats, Sarsour was an ardent supporter of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.).

In response to the report of Bates’ comments of the Biden camp’s separating itself from any affiliation with Sarsour, the questionable Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) national executive director Nihad Awad called out the campaign for not standing up for the rights of Palestinians.

“We do not stand for these attempts to repress advocacy for Palestinian rights from the right, and we will not stand for it from the Biden campaign,” Awad said, according to

Awad also reportedly said that the Biden campaign should “immediately apologize to Linda Sarsour and to American Muslims.”

The way Awad speaks, it’s as if Sarsour is the American representation for all Palestinians — who like to use women and children as human shields — and for Muslims in general.

In reality, Sarsour is nothing more than a radical far-leftist with questionable ties to extremists who advocates for an anti-American, anti-Israel agenda.
