Robert Spencer: Elle Magazine Puts White Linda Sarsour on Its List of ‘Women of Color in Politics to Watch in 2020’

by Robert Spencer

Elle magazine seems somewhat embarrassed by its list, published last week, of “20 Women of Color in Politics to Watch in 2020.” The article now carries this prominent disclaimer: “The below list was compiled by She the People, a national non profit network of women of color committed to social justice and voter mobilization. A previous version of this story did not make clear that the list was compiled by She the People and not ELLE magazine.” This was added because Elle faced a backlash for including the vehemently anti-Semitic Leftist activist Linda Sarsour on the list. But no one seems to have noticed another problem: the list is of “women of color,” and Sarsour is white.

Such minor quibbles will fall on deaf ears among Leftists. For the Left is at war not just with conservatives, but with reality itself. This has been clear for quite some time. Instead of trying to achieve some reconciliation with the nature of things as they are, the Left is growing ever more divorced from truth, reason, and ineluctable facts. For example, witness the hijab-wearing feminist (an oxymoron just as much as a white “woman of color,” as white is not a color in the Left’s world) Linda Sarsour’s magical race transformation.

It has been absurd enough to see Sarsour, a hijab-wearing defender of that most misogynistic of legal codes, Sharia, emerge as a champion of women’s rights and a feminist leader. But that was rational compared to the weapons-grade absurdity that Elle, or She The People, is now serving up regarding this palest of “women of color.”

The stage was set for Elle to anoint Sarsour as a “woman of color in politics to watch in 2020” several years ago, when the blogger Elder of Ziyon made an amazing discovery: Linda Sarsour claimed she “magically changed from white to a ‘woman of color’ in an instant,” just by putting on a hijab.

It’s true: in a Vox video published in January 2017, Sarsour said: When I wasn’t wearing hijab I was just some ordinary white girl from New York City.

But in an April 2017 interview of this hero of feminism, there is this: After watching Michelle Pfeiffer’s character in Dangerous Minds, Sarsour decided to become a high school teacher, “inspiring young people of color like me, to show them their potential.” She graduated a year early, gave birth to her eldest son, and enrolled in community college.

In the ensuing controversy, Linda Sarsour doubled down, saying: I’m Palestinian. If I want to say “I’m black,” I’m black!

What did being Palestinian have to do in Linda Sarsour’s crowded mind with her spurious claim of blackness? Well, it’s a fictional nationality, so Sarsour might as well take on a fictional race to go along with it. Maybe she was saying that since she had already made one fantasy a cornerstone of her public identity, adding another couldn’t hurt. As The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process demonstrates, the “Palestinians” as a people were indistinguishable from the neighboring Arabs. The “Palestinian” ethnicity or nationality was never known or mentioned throughout human history until the 1960s, when Yasser Arafat and the KGB invented it as a stick to beat the Israelis with. Tiny Israel arrayed against 22 hostile Arab countries looked like the plucky, heroic underdog; but the tinier “Palestinian” people facing the massive Israeli war machine reversed the narrative.

PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein said this in 1977: The Palestinian people does not exist.

The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians, and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.

For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a “Palestinian,” I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem.

However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

If Islamic jihadis (with considerable help from Marxist strategists) can invent an entire ethnic group, why can’t Linda Sarsour, a proud member of this invented ethnic group, change races? For “tactical reasons,” in order to identify with the fashionable victim classes instead of with the universally designated oppressor, white people?

Elle’s article shows that Sarsour’s tactic has worked wonderfully, and reality can take the hindmost. The Left left it behind long ago, and if you still pay attention to it, you’re just not woke.

Jesse Lee Peterson: The Real Enemies of the People

by Jesse Lee Peterson

For the past 28 years, I’ve worked to wake up people across America and the world. Most are in a fallen state and don’t know it. Fathers are weak or absent, mothers are angry, and children disconnected from fathers and disconnected from God.

You will never know God unless you love your fellow man, beginning with your father.

Because men are weak, women have gone out of control. Together they’ve created excuses, a false religion in which “nobody’s perfect,” accepting wrong as right. Children grow up lost, and in some cases reject Christianity entirely.

Christ called out hypocrites who refused to enter the Kingdom of Heaven themselves – and sought to prevent others from doing so. This same hypocrisy goes on today in the world, with failing parents, deceptive false authority, “experts” and phony preachers. It’s especially ridiculous among “black leaders” and other liberals. But whites and “conservative” Christians are not innocent, which is why our country has sunken to the depths it has. Until Trump, the country was nearly swallowed up by evil. He’s standing against the madness, and now evil is desperate.

Everyone can see how insane the liberals, especially “black leaders,” have become. Many of them pretend to believe in God, but vote for the party of violence, lies, hate and abortion. The Democratic Party is evil, and anyone who votes for Democrats supports evil. When asked why, they point to Republican so-called “racism,” “sexism” or some other made-up “-ism.” They bring false accusations against Trump, and attack straight, white, conservative, Christian men – especially those of power. Liberals tout their phony compassion toward the “poor,” “minorities,” “women” and “children” – but only when the cause favors wrongdoing. They push injustice and call it “justice.”

We’ve all seen how extreme and evil the media is – CNN, New York Times, Washington Post and other leftwing outlets. They hate President Trump, a simple, strong white man who tells the truth and loves America. But they loved Obama, the feminist president who never stopped lying since he ran for president, who hates America. These liberals fanned the flames of the Black Lives Matter riots and cop-killings, but called the agitators “mostly peaceful.” The media support the violent communist Antifa thugs, uncritically calling them “anti-racist” or “anti-fascist.”

The media and liberals manipulate language to seduce blind people. They support illegal aliens, calling them “undocumented immigrants.” They welcome third-world Democrat-leaning Muslims as “refugees.” But they call the murder of white South African natives “fake news.” They support radical homosexuals pushing so-called “marriage equality” or “LGBTQ rights” (both phony, deceptive, destructive ideas). They paint pro-abortion radicals as “pro-choice” for “reproductive rights,” and downplay the ongoing holocaust of unborn children. But they call pro-lifers “anti-abortion rights” (as though being against killing babies in the womb is negative or oppressive).

They call whites “neo-Nazis,” men “rapists,” and non-leftists “far-right.” To them, a non-liberal who defends himself is “violent” and anyone who tells the truth is a “bigot.”

They’re no longer journalists, but activists – joining forces with the Democrats against America – truly the enemy of the people, as Trump said.

The mainstream media still cite the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a credible source. The SPLC is a far-left “nonprofit” organization pretending to track “hate” – primarily attacking outspoken whites and Christians. They inspired a terror attack on Family Research Council by putting them on their “hate map” for being “anti-gay.”

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

The SPLC recently labeled Proud Boys as a “hate group.” Proud Boys are a fraternity headed by talk show host Gavin McInnes, founded to promote pride in Western Civilization. Proud Boys typically show up to protect Trump supporters and free speech advocates at rallies. The media call the Proud Boys “violent” for getting into fights with Antifa’s “masked protestors.” The left don’t care that Antifa vandalizes property and attack people at events – including law enforcement and anyone with a camera.

Neither the SPLC, the liberal media, nor the Democratic Party has any authority on what constitutes “hate.” They themselves are full of lies and hatred. They have no love.

People who lack love don’t have real power – or truth. They only have intimidation and seduction. Unfortunately, many who want what’s right have been intimidated and seduced by the children of the lie. I’ve watched conservatives kiss up to women, blacks and “minorities” as though they deserve special treatment – afraid of being called “racist” or “sexist.” I’ve also witnessed many young people frustrated by this hypocrisy and injustice, taking the opposite extreme. They openly hate and blame women, Jews and even Baby Boomers. In anger, people get into the knowledge of good and evil, and Satan leads them by their intellect into darkness.

I am warning you, if you want to overcome evil, you cannot go with blame. People who blame are defeated – victims, pathetic losers and beta males. If you don’t forgive, God won’t forgive you, and you’ll be overtaken by evil.

President Trump is defeating his enemies because he deals with challenges perfectly, telling the truth with no fear or anger. Let’s have faith and do the same.

 

Jesse Lee Peterson: KEEP TWEETING, PRESIDENT TRUMP

KEEP TWEETING, PRESIDENT TRUMP- Jesse Lee Peterson declares, ‘Finally, there’s a real man in office!’

by Jesse Lee Peterson

I love the example that President Trump sets for America. Finally, there’s a real man in office! He breaks the culture that kills masculinity and distorts truth. He shows tough love with no fear. Americans have not seen such a man in so long that many do not recognize it.

Donald Trump is the president America needs. He defends himself when attacked, slaps down opposition, ignores the fake rules of political correctness, and he goes around the media to tell us what’s really going on in the country. He does it all with no anger or malice.

Trump told us on Twitter that Obama “wire tapped” him. Despite outrage from phony media and politicians, he was proven right. We’ve seen evidence of spying and leaks from people inside the government beholden to Obama who hate Trump and try to undermine his America-first agenda.

What do YOU think? Sound off on Trump’s tweeted video ‘bodyslam’ of CNN in the WND Poll!

Trump tweeted that he won the popular vote against Hillary if you discount the millions of illegal votes she received. Since Obama’s election, voter-integrity groups faced harassment from the IRS and other government agencies. Liberal media, Democrats and activist judges cry “racism” against sensible voter ID laws, fooling brainwashed blacks, Hispanics and college-educated liberals who can’t think for themselves.

Liberals have no qualms about cheating the system and breaking the law. Research groups Old Dominion University and Just Facts independently estimated millions of illegal votes in the past three presidential elections, supporting Trump’s claim.

Trump put to rest the false “Russian collusion” story while the liberal media further destroyed their credibility by trying to hurt the president. The undercover journalism of Project Veritas exposed CNN’s snobbish disdain for Trump, for voters and the truth. Influential CNN employees, including Van Jones, were caught admitting there was nothing to the “Russia” story. CNN is just an example of the dishonesty of all liberal elitists.

Trump’s tweets make liberal establishments like CNN and “the failing New York Times” look cheap and untrustworthy. He tweeted, “The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media – but remember, I won the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat #FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN!” He pinned the tweet, “I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!”

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood

Liberals want to ban Trump from Twitter. They use liberal “community guidelines” and deceptive “fake news” guidelines to censor conservatives and influential independent figures on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. But Twitter would lose if it tried that on Trump. All of Trump’s opponents fall by the wayside (just look at Hillary Clinton, Megyn Kelly and now CNN).

The president said: “I heard poorly-rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

The liberal media had a hissy fit. CNN’s Chris Cillizza accused Trump of “bullying” the “woman,” Mika Brzezinski, while largely ignoring what he said about the “male,” Joe Scarborough. RINO Republicans like Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, Ben Sasse and Lynn Jenkins, of course, joined the wicked (but useless) anti-man attack on the president.

Trump is not a coward on the playground who lets you bully him and cries to Mama. As first lady Melania Trump indicated, if you hit him, expect to be hit back “10 times harder.” President Trump stands his ground and doesn’t apologize. He kills the feminized culture that stands against men.

Trump tweeted: “Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!”

NBC is part of the dishonest media establishment, highlighting the need for Donald Trump to talk directly to us. NBC’s Chuck Todd moralized, “Anyone with a child under 18 has to be asking themselves, how do I explain the president’s actions especially since he faces no consequences[?]” As my grandmother explained to my sisters when they hit me, and I hit back, “If you don’t want to get hit, don’t hit!”

The president works to protect the American people. But due to the hatred residing in liberals’ hearts, they can’t see this. The Supreme Court allowed part of Trump’s travel ban to go forward, protecting us from Muslim refugees who bring problems and lack love for America.

The House of Representatives passed Kate’s Law this week. Trump met with families of victims of illegal aliens. He reported these things on his social media platforms in his weekly video address. As Trump tweeted, “My use of social media is not Presidential – it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!”

Watch President Trump’s example, and learn to fight evil without anger. You will be more effective, happy and peaceful. To become a real man or woman, seek God by first loving your father (as Trump does). I urge you to pray that you might find the kingdom of heaven within.

Jesse Lee Peterson: Trump is like a father to misbehaving media

Trump is Like a Father to Misbehaving Media Jesse Lee Peterson applauds president for exhorting press about hateful tone.

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Do you remember when Chris Rock said President Barack Obama was “our boss,” that Barack and Michelle were “like the mom and the dad of the country,” and that we need to listen to what they say?
Sorry, Chris. The Obamas did not make good national parents.

The Obamas are not genuine people. They lack love. They don’t care about what’s right. They care only about their own egos and political agenda. They’re not about truth or decency. Just look at their daughter, Malia, for whom trashy Beyonce was a wonderful “role model.”

Remember, Obama promised the “most transparent administration” ever, but it was the most lying, secretive and scandal ridden. He blamed Fox News and Rush Limbaugh for telling the truth about him. He never faced Sean Hannity, and he slithered and charmed his way through Bill O’Reilly’s interviews.

It’s different with President Trump. His decency as a father shows in his children’s lives. And it showed at his one-hour-and-17-minute press conference last week. He showed love, not hate – not just for the American people, but for the press, even those he called “failing,” “fake news” or, in one case, “very fake news.”

We all know how biased the media are: They deceive the people – typically by omitting positive information about those they hate, and omitting negative information about those they love. They honor and prop up the worst people, but they attack and mischaracterize conservatives, whites and men.
Many in the media actually consider themselves objective. They really believe in “racism,” “same-sex marriage,” “transgenderism,” abortion – things not rooted in truth. Their parents failed them, and that’s why they’re liberals and insecure, nasty, prideful people.

We also know how jealous, evil and destructive the media are: They stir up false controversies to defame the innocent, divide the country, spread hate and inspire riots and protests. They do hit pieces on individuals who don’t fall in line, to further their agenda. (See popular YouTuber PewDiePie, for a recent example.)

The liberal media tend to do one of two things to avoid admitting they’re wrong. Most often, they feign objectivity, gaslight and lie to the public, as Washington Post’s Marty Baron did, saying, “We’re not at war with the administration, we’re at work.” Were they on vacation the past eight years as Obama created a mess?

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

And occasionally, the media get defensive and angrily shut down truth-tellers, as CNN’s Don Lemon did to commentator Paris Dennard. Dennard dismissed a discussion focusing on the “high cost” to taxpayers for the Secret Service to protect the Trump family. He called the supposed controversy “fake news.” Lemon got mad and wouldn’t even let Dennard explain why it was “fake news.” He ended the segment early and walked off the set!

The press looks down on the people, particularly on conservatives, as intellectual liberals think they know better than the rest of us. They constantly gather information, thus ever building their pride – yet they cannot interpret reality.

Christ warned the Pharisees and Sadducees who did not believe in him about their blindness and arrogance in all their knowledge and their looking for “signs” and proof. He said that they could not discern the signs of the times. He told the Pharisees that they did not understand him because they could not hear him, because they were not of God. They could only believe their father the devil, the murderer and the father of lies.

There are two realities to life. The people of evil live in a completely different reality from the people of good. Anger places you in that false reality, because, in anger, you feel you are fighting for “justice” (think Black Lives Matter). But, in truth, you are an unjust judge who can’t see, and you are deceived.

Donald Trump exhorted the press about their hateful tone, their speculative focus on his administration’s alleged connections to “Russia” and their dishonest ways in general. He told the media that if they were “straight” and fair, instead of hateful and dishonest, they would help both themselves and the country, because the people simply do not trust them:

I watch CNN, and it’s so much anger, hatred, and just the hatred, I don’t watch it anymore. … But I think it should be straight. … I think it should be, frankly, more interesting. I know how good everybody’s ratings are right now, but I think it’ll actually be better. People, you have a lower approval rate than Congress. … But, honestly, the public would appreciate it. I would appreciate it.
