NEW YORK, January 24: The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) today unveiled a shocking new video, filmed at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. the day after the inauguration of President Trump, showing that many marchers were ignorant of and indifferent to the plight of women suffering under Sharia oppression, even as they claimed to be marching in defense of women.
One of the organizers behind Saturday’s Women’s March, Linda Sarsour, is a notorious anti-semite and was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group. An outspoken critic of Israel, Sarsour “supports the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement, a Hamas-inspired initiative that uses various forms of public protest, economic pressure, and court rulings to advance the Hamas agenda of permanently destroying Israel as a Jewish nation-state.”
AFDI President Pamela Geller noted: “As violent Leftists rioted in Washington on Donald Trump’s inauguration day, our AFDI correspondent Laura Loomer was there. Laura also attended the Women’s March the next day. At both, she found the opposition to Trump to be angry, arrogant, confrontational — and unwilling to confront facts that disproved their positions, particularly on Trump’s opposition to Islamic terrorism.”
Geller added: “This was true even of Democratic Presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, who sneered at our correspondent and accused her of ‘hate’ for standing up for Muslim women.”
The video shows that women’s marchers repeatedly showed that they had no idea of the grim reality of life for women under Islamic law — polygamy, beatings, honor killings, genital mutilation — and no interest in hearing about it. For them, Muslims are an oppressed class threatened by Trump; jihad terror and Sharia oppression just don’t matter to them. This tragic indifference is compounded by the fact that a principal organizer of the Women’s March was Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour. Sarsour is openly pro-Sharia and has numerous links with the terror group Hamas.
Concluded Geller: “These encounters show something very important about the Trump-hating, America-hating Left: it simply doesn’t know what it’s talking about.”
