There is a frightening cultural shift happening in America. In an effort to appear non-Islamophobic and accepting of different cultures, many people have felt a need to embrace countries and governments that participate in gross human-rights violations, especially against women.
Celebs have stood idly by and even participated in the same cultural acceptance of extremists who deprive groups of people of their rights. It’s why the few who do stand up and say there’s a problem, such as “Real Time” host Bill Maher, are immediately lambasted as fear-mongering Islamophobes.

Now another celebrity has decided to speak out. Musician and widow of the late Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, has called out pro-Palestinian “feminist” Linda Sarsour on Twitter.
[lz_third_party align=center width=630 includes=https://twitter.com/Courtney/status/872412363831603201?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fbig-hollywood%2F2017%2F06%2F07%2Fcourtney-love-cobain-linda-sarsour-vile-disgrace-women-mankind%2F]
For those who don’t know, Sarsour is co-chair of the Women’s March. In her Twitter bio she claims to be a “civil rights activist,” but her comments about women and women’s rights paint a very different story, one Love was eager to highlight for her fans.
The singer called Sarsour an “anti-American fear-mongering fraud.” Love was referring to the fact that Sarsour recently raised $100,000 for a Somali woman who claims to be a victim of a hate crime, though police have said there is no evidence to back up the claims.
“Where is the money now? Sorry but she’s a criminal,” tweeted Love. Next to Love’s accusation, Sarsour is a frightening example of what our culture is beginning to accept as a “civil rights activist.”
One viral tweet from Sarsour appears to show she thinks Saudi Arabia, which is under Sharia law, provides better rights to women than America.

Mind you, in Saudi Arabia women are second-class citizens who cannot drive, dress as they choose, or interact openly and freely with men.
Worse still, Sarsour had horrifying things to say about Ayaan Hirsi Ali and ACT for America founder Brigitte Gabriel, who are both vocal critics of Islamic extremism. Hirsi Ali was also a victim of genital mutilation, one of the civil rights issues about which Sarsour seems not to care.
“I wish I could take their vaginas away,” tweeted Sarsour outrageously. “They don’t deserve to be women.”
Sarsour has also made comments about Israel that many people feel are anti-Semitic.
Other well-known people aside from Courtney Love should be drawing the line when it comes to phony “feminists” and “civil rights activists” like Sarsour. Her comments regarding Israel, Sharia law, and women are reprehensible. Yet she was one of the prime speakers at the Women’s March back in January, and she still gets prime speaking roles.
Comments such as those from Sarsour, which promote hate and oppression, should not be tolerated, especially from someone running around the country claiming to be fighting for civil rights.
