Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) told an audience at Politicon in Los Angeles on Saturday that he continues to support extremist Linda Sarsour because of her leadership role in organizing the Women's March last January.
During a question-and-answer session, Lieu was asked about his role in presenting an award to Sarsour on behalf of a left-wing Asian-American organization in October 2017.
Sarsour is a left-wing extremist with a notorious record:
- In 2011, Sarsour tweeted that Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born critic of Islam should have her vagina taken away. (Ali was a victim of forced female circumcision as a child.)
- In January 2017, after helping to organize the Women's March, Sarsour told Israel's Ha'aretz that she supported boycotting Israel and wanted to see it replaced.
