CNN's Jake Tapper Spars With Terrorist Advocate Linda Sarsour After She Calls Him Alt-Right

A battle has erupted between CNN's Jake Tapper and left-wing Muslim activist Linda Sarsour, after Tapper called out the Women's March group co-chaired by Sarsour after tweeting their support for convicted cop-killing domestic terrorist Assata Shakur, who has been ducking American justice in Cuba since 1984.

Shakur - aunt of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur, is a member of the far-left Black Liberation Army (BLA) and was convicted of the 1977 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foster during a shootout on the NJ Turnpike. Shakur escaped prison in 1979, and after five years on the run fled to Cuba where she currently lives under political asylum.

In light of Women's March tweet in support of Shakur, Tapper responded:

Shakur is a cop-killer fugitive in Cuba. This, ugly sentiments from @lsarsour & @dykemarchchi ...Any progressives out there condemning this?

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) July 18, 2017

In response, Sarsour tweeted that the very liberal Tapper had joined 'the ranks of the alt-right to target me online.'

.@jaketapper joins the ranks of the alt-right to target me online. Welcome to the party.

— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) July 18, 2017

Sarsour then slipped into the well worn reactionary identity politics of those with no argument - suggesting that Tapper was perhaps referring to her being a Palestinian, pro-immigrant Muslim.

.@jaketapper please share my "ugly" sentiments? Unapologetically Muslim? Unapologetically Palestinian? Pro-immigrant? Pro-justice? Shame.

— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) July 18, 2017

Nope! Tapper responded by calling Sarsour out for attacking actual feminist - Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim turned atheist and a victim of female genital mutilation (FGM).

Your comment about @Ayaan for one.

Ali (@Ayaan) - a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School of Government and founder of a women's rights organization, has been a vocal critic of Islam.

A must read article:

Jake Tapper's tweet referring to Sarsour's comments on Ali was in reference to a 2011 tweet in which Sarsour said Ali and was "asking 4 an a$$ whippin,'

Kurt Eichenwald Seizes the Moment

After Sarsour's alt-right comment Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald could no longer bite his tongue - letting Sarsour know that her attack on Tapper was a bad idea...

I've paid little attention to controversies involving you. But if ur calling @jaketapper alt-right? Not a big credibility boost for u.

Real feminists don't advocate destroying their opponent's vaginas while defending regimes that regularly mutilate women's clitorises.

Terrorists Love Terrorists

I just agreed with @jaketapper ????

— Mary Elaine (@PalmBreezy) July 19, 2017

I'm just happy that at least somebody in the media with an influential platform has sounded off on this. Thank you, Jake Tapper.
