Forget Sen. Jeff Sessions and the sit-ins and protests surrounding his nomination; don’t even think for a second about a joke printed in Justice Neil Gorsuch’s high school yearbook, or the robe Sen. Ted Cruz wore in college, or everything Donald Trump and Mitt Romney ever said over the course of their entire lives.
Women’s March on Washington co-organizer Linda Sansour, who was recently called out on a 2013 tweet in which she wished women’s rights activists Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali would be whipped and their vaginas taken away, doesn’t want to be judged on something stupid she said six years ago. Instead, judge her on all the stupid things said at the Women’s March.
Don't judge me by tweets taken out of context or something stupid I said 6 years ago, judge me by my CLEAR civil & human rights track record

Everyone, please take out your rulebooks and note this important change to the rules of political discourse, which shall be known as the Sarsour Rule — not to be confused with the Biden Rule.
@lsarsour you tweeted a pro sharia article today

@lsarsour what are your thoughts on Sharia law, today?
— Eric von Otter (@ericvonotter) February 5, 2017
@lsarsour So do you deny, here and now, that sharia is reasonable?

@lsarsour Then clarify your stance on Saudi Arabia. Do you support male guardianship laws? Do you agree not being to drive is a huge deal?

@lsarsour easy then repudiate sharia law as evil and damaging to women

@lsarsour I'm sorry….you are to equal rights what Shaun King and Rachel Dolezal are to African-Americans.
