“Feminist” icon Linda Sarsour was invited by the University of Connecticut to give a lecture at the school’s “Herstory” Month, bypassing the school’s recently installed review process for speakers. (Speakers only have to be vetted if they are invited by a student organization, but not if they are invited by the university itself.)

It’s a pretty safe bet that she won’t bring up her support for terrorists (including child warriors) and sharia law (which denigrates women and relegates them to second class citizens) or her wishes for those women who disagree with her (“I wish I could take away their vaginas – they don’t deserve to be women,” she tweeted about Ayaan Hirsi Ali or Bridgette Gabriel).

She might bring up her support for the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement against Israel. She also might call again for a “jihad” against “the fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House” as she has done before, calling jihad “patriotism.” Both of those positions seem to be uncontroversial on college campuses these days.

It’s also a pretty safe bet that the university won’t block members of the public from attending her lecture or offer special and preemptive counselling services to students who may be traumatized by her presence as they did when conservative speaker Ben Shapiro recently spoke on campus.

(It was after that speech that the university established a review process to decide who gets to speak on campus. However, Sarsour’s invitation wasn’t subjected to that protocol since the university itself invited Sarsour and not a campus organization.)

All told, infamous Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour has managed to pull the wool over the eyes of a generation of gullible millennials and their administrative enablers.

What an accomplishment.
