INFIGHTING: Linda Sarsour Attacks Chuck Schumer For Being A White Man

Intersectionality infighting came to a boil on Wednesday at an anti-Trump rally in Washington, D.C., when pro-Muslim and stridently anti-Israel activist ​Linda Sarsour attacked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who is Jewish, for being a white male.

“I’m talking to Chuck Schumer. I’m tired of white men negotiating on the backs of people of color and communities like ours,” Sarsour said, referring to the Democrat negotiating the terms for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.

“We are not bargaining chips,” she added. “This is not a poker game.”

The rally, dubbed “A Day of Action Against Trump’s White Supremacy,” advocated for blanket amnesty for all illegal aliens in the U.S. and branded any opposition to such thought as racist.

“This is human lives, and communities and families who deserve to live in these United States of America,” said Sarsour.

The pro-Palestinian activist also predictably railed against President Donald Trump, referring to him as a “fascist” and comparing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to the Gestapo.

“You have a fascist in the highest office of this land who is running ICE, which has always been a rogue agency,” she said, adding, “But now they’re acting like the Gestapo, bullying and picking people up in the middle of the night; dragging people away in front of schools, coming to the church.”
