Linda Sarsour and her anti-Semitic cronies have set their sights on CNN host Jake Tapper. As reported by The Investigative Project on Terrorism, the mob wants Tapper fired.

What set Sarsour off this time? (She’s had a run-in with Tapper before, but more on that later.)

Tapper was talking about the power of “tone” – the use of inciteful language in the context of the recent political violence in the U.S. Tapper was making the point that both sides of the political divide need to be consistent — that if conservatives call out the Left for using inciteful language, they need to call out the Right when they do the same thing.

Tapper’s point was, regardless of the political orientation of the violence, “either tone matters or it doesn’t.”

But Jake Tapper committed a “crime” to make his point, using the (truthful) example of Palestinian leaders who incite violence against Israelis with their inflammatory rhetoric. Tapper said to a guest on the show (you can watch the clip below):

“You hear conservatives talk all the time—rightly so, in my opinion—talk about the tone set by people in the Arab world. Palestinian leaders … and the way they talk about Israelis, justifying — in the same way you are doing — no direct link necessarily between what the leader says and the violence against some poor Israeli girl in a pizzeria. But the idea [is] that you’re validating this hatred … You can’t compare the ideology of Hamas with anything else, but at the same time, either tone matters or it doesn’t.”

Tapper was making the point that “those who believe Palestinian leaders bear responsibility for the incitement of terrorism cannot then let US leaders off the hook and act as if words don’t matter.”

For anyone who doubts Tapper was right to cite Palestinian leaders for their incendiary rhetoric, watch the following original video by Clarion Project:

But Sarsour and her gang – including Palestinian Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib – will have nothing of the truth.

Instead, for rightfully citing the inflammatory language of the Palestinian leadership, they called on CNN to give Tapper the boot for his “blatant anti-Arab bigotry and Islamophobia.”

Sarour, et.al are vocal proponents of the BDS (Boycott, Sanction and Divest) movement against Israel. It’s a movement deemed anti-Semitic at its core according to the definition of anti-Semitism adopted by the U.S. State Department and 31 other countries worldwide.

In their fight against the Jewish state, Sarsour and her ilk believe that even lies must be defended – like the one mentioned by Rashida Tlaib in the following tweet:

Sarsour activated her platform MPower Change, asking participants to sign a petition campaign calling on CNN to cancel Tapper.

And in the height of irony, Sana Saeed, a host and producer for Al Jazeera (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hamas-supporting Qatari government) tweeted:

Jake Tapper survived a previous hit by Sarsour in 2017 after he called out Sarsour and her fellow travelers in the Women’s March for praising cop-killer Assata Shakur, who escaped from prison and was granted asylum in Cuba. At the time, Sarsour accused Tapper of being part of the “alt-right.”

Yet, in our politically deceptive environment, where lies are peddled every day as truth and facts are routinely looked upon as a  passé phenomenon, it remains to be seen if CNN will cave to the pressure and cut Tapper loose to weather this storm alone.
