This is rich. As Twitchy reported, CNN’s Jake Tapper was among those wondering who among the progressive Left would step up and denounce the Women’s March for glorifying convicted terrorist Assata Shakur, aka Joanne D. Chesimard, with a birthday tweet.
The Women’s March already issued a series of 20 tweets to “demonstrate the ongoing history of government & right-wing attempts to criminalize and discredit political activists,” and now it seems that Tapper is on Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour’s ever-growing enemies list.
.@jaketapper joins the ranks of the alt-right to target me online. Welcome to the party.

.@jaketapper please share my "ugly" sentiments? Unapologetically Muslim? Unapologetically Palestinian? Pro-immigrant? Pro-justice? Shame.

Ouch, that wasn’t difficult. But keep in mind: sure, Sarsour tweeted in 2013 her wish that women’s rights activists Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali would be whipped and their vaginas taken away, but after she tasted fame with the Women’s March, she asked not to be judged on old tweets taken out of context … so stop bringing it up, OK?
That just leaves us with the tweet praising a convicted cop-killer on which to judge her, plus all that talk at the march about blowing up the White House. No wonder an alt-right journalist like Tapper was so triggered.
Lol. Welcome, @jaketapper

Jake Tapper? Are you serious? You just added another item to the "why Linda SOUR is a Fraud" pile. Oh my goodness. bwhahaha!

You realize that by calling Jake Tapper "alt-right" you undermine the potential for credibility on your part, correct?
— Joshua Bell (@CoachCrazy) July 18, 2017
I don't think he attacked you at all, his comments were about condemning support for a convicted cop killer. Not celebrating her.

why, because he disagrees with you? He didn't "target" you. And he's certainly not "alt-right".

When someone says @jaketapper is alt-right you know you've had enough of the internet for the day.

When promoting a greedy, lying, self-important, religious charlatan goes wrong.

Everyone knows what you are. Thanks for helping the GOP win forever.

I pray you remain the face of the "Resistance." I hope progressives never open their eyes to see what you are.

I'm a cop and I think you're disgusting as well. Can I be in the alt-right? How do I register for the newsletter?

Jumping the shark straight into permanent victimhood status your acceptable behavior circle will just get smaller and smaller.

Someone can disagree with you and not be alt-right. You're convincing me not to be associated with @womensmarch anymore.
