Can we really act surprised here? We’re talking about the same organization that once defended the North American Man Boy Love Association. I don’t think anything really embarrasses these people.
The American Civil Liberties Union announced on Tuesday via Twitter that they are standing with Linda Sarsour. The tweet included a year-old blog post on Sarsour titled “Muslim, American, & Intersectional: The Activism of Linda Sarsour.”

The blog was more-or-less about Sarsour’s ascension into the public eye as a Muslim activist. It was a nauseating attempt to glorify an Islamic social justice warrior who views herself as a perpetual victim of racist America.
Timing of this “endorsement” matters. Sarsour has long been scrutinized for her extremist rhetoric, but she has been in hot water more recently for comments made while giving a speech to the Islamic Society of North America convention. Sarsour called for “jihad” against the Trump administration. Following controversy after her speech, Sarsour has refused to back down from using the word – accusing conservative media of a smear campaign against her.
The ACLU has long been a foe of the Christian business community. No matter what corner of the continental U.S. you live on – if you want to sue a Christian bakery, the ACLU has your back. I could at least understand their stringent stance for the separation of church and state if it was consistent – but it clearly isn’t.
Remember: Sarsour has been on record defending Shariah Law. She has also publicly criticized state bans on Shariah Law.
@LaRebelleFleur shariah law is reasonable and once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics

Here she is PRAISING Saudi Arabia for paid maternity leave while brushing aside the fact that women in that country aren’t even allowed to drive.
10 weeks of PAID maternity leave in Saudi Arabia. Yes PAID. And ur worrying about women driving. Puts us to shame. http://t.co/xZAwgg6HXL

So when Christians refuse to bake a gay-themed cake, the ACLU is always there for a court room battle. But when Sarsour vehemently defends a religious law that calls for the death of homosexuals, the ACLU gives her a shining endorsement.
Got it? Good.
