So Much For Separation Of Church and State- The ACLU Backs a Sharia Activist And Her Calls For Jihad Against Trump

For a long time now the Left has been trying to change the title from Islamist to Jihadist, and it looks like they'll now have to search for yet another term as one of their darlings, Linda Sarsour let the mask slip quite a bit. The old saw that "jihad means peceful inner struggle" seems to be wearing a bit thin.

Twitchy: ‘We have to stay outraged!’ Linda Sarsour endorses ‘jihad’ in anti-Trump tirade

You can go to those links and hear her say it lie on video, including her invocation that

“Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community. It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority. And our top priority…is to please Allah, and only Allah.”

She's been known to advocate for instituting Sharia law in the US, as well as far less savory anti-Semitic and anti-Israel comments and attacks on Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and hugging and supporting convicted terrorist and immigration fraudster Rasmea Odeh.

Interestingly, the ACLU, an organization that among other things is rather vociferous about separating religion from the state, right after Sarsour made these jihad statements posted on Twitter that she's a fighter for civil rights and liberties. Methinks the ACLU got their wires rather crossed on this one. One would think the ACLU's concept of separation of church and state would include separation of sharia and state as well, but in the pantheon of progressive causes, Islamism apparently comes first.

Hey Aaron;

I use a term from Voltaire "To know who rules you try to criticize" or something like that. I am paraphrasing. Yep, the ACLU is all over the Christians and Jews for anything but they give the islamist a pass. That alone tells me that they are a leftist organization.

It's an interesitng quote, but likely never spoken by Voltaire and is an invention of the Internet. I am still surprised that the ACLU is so vociferously celebrating someone whose entire platform should be anathema to them. It's one thing to represent those you disdain on principle of the thing such as Nazis marching in order to defend free speech rights, but it's quite another thing entirely to feature and fete them.
