Linda sarsour really called jake tapper the alt-right jfc skdksodkskks im so done with that woman
I don’t follow either of them in any capacity unless they trend on Twitter so I had to go see what they said.
*sigh* Okay, so I still don’t know what to believe RE: Shakur being a cop-killer because some say she is and some say she’s not so I can’t comment on that (and please, nobody try to educate me because I’m perfectly capable of doing the research myself, which I will) and we all know that the Dyke March Chi chapter is trash after what they did to the Jewish marchers during Pride Month. So that’s that on that.
But to Linda’s point that Tapper is suddenly just as bad as the alt-right for criticizing her? Is she high? I mean that reads to me like nobody is allowed to criticize anything she says or does, lest they become part of the alt-right or suddenly become Islamophobic/appear to pander to Islamophobes, which were also some tweets I saw when I searched both her and Tapper’s names on Twitter. That disagreeing with or criticizing her is, in and of itself, Islamophobic and wrong and grants you a seat at the alt-right table. Which is obviously ridiculous for anyone with a lick of common sense.
This is also disgusting because the alt-right is full of anti-Semitic white supremacists and straight up Nazis, and Jake Tapper is Jewish. The article I linked above touches on this point. So to throw him in a group with the very people that would love to see him wiped off the face of the Earth is, at the very least, disgusting. At worst, it’s anti-Semitic imo.
This just goes back to what I said about not being happy that prominent people on the left are associating with her. I believe she says things to cause controversy and/or simply just has a lot of bad opinions + questionable views. I don’t support her, though I recognize that a lot of criticism she gets is because she’s a female Palestinian Muslim. But that doesn’t mean that all of the criticism she gets comes from a place of bigotry, and that’s something that really needs to be made clear. Nobody deserves a free pass to be a shitty person and/or say ludicrous things just because they’re part of a persecuted class of people.
