As Twitchy told you earlier today, Linda Sarsour was blasted for raising money for a liberal political action group by masquerading is as a Hurricane Harvey relief fund.
The backlash was immediate:
Not a dime of this money goes to victims of #Harvey. It goes to "Political Action". pic.twitter.com/0FkQeq6WaC

So Linda Sarsour is attempting to exploit the victims of Hurricane #Harvey by fundraising off of the disaster. What a fraud. pic.twitter.com/L2ErQLdP3y

This is really unbelievably gross. Even for Sarsour, this is just so far over the line. https://t.co/lyTSnM3onF

Sarsour has set up a "Hurricane Relief Fund" that actually donates to…lobbying and grassroots organizing. Not "relief." She's despicable.

HOUSTONIANS: My house was washed away.
SARSOUR: Please donate to help.
SARSOUR: PS we help by 'community organizing' later

However, here’s who Sarsour blames for the backlash:
"Alt-right" must have sent out an email blast. My mentions are on steroids.

She’s got to be kidding…
Who could possibly object to trawling for political donations in the name of "hurricane relief"? Nazis, that's whohttps://t.co/rnR0DVeTCd

Just when you thought it couldn’t get more disgusting.
No, sweetie, not how it happened.

This has nothing to do with the alt-right and everything to do with you being a grifter. On the backs of people suffering.

If by "Alt-right" you mean "normal people who detected a fraudulent pitch," then yeah. https://t.co/fQxhtF2o4u pic.twitter.com/oWIHVC3Dlj

Not everyone against you is "alt-right." Some of us are just tired of the BS

You're fundraiser for a political PAC on the backs of families who are suffering. Your soul is black. https://t.co/TOvYknXc4N

Your mentions are on steroids because you're a scumbag. Does that clear it up? https://t.co/Qym1S9pHR4

You're diverting #HurricaneHarvey donations to a far left PAC. It's not "Alt-right," finding that reprehensible, it's ALL decent Americans. https://t.co/zOJtW8TJIN

Might have to do with people realizing you are fundraising for a political movement and not for disaster relief.

‘Best one-word tweet EVER’: ‘The Mossad’ trolls Linda Sarsour with 1 word, in 1 tweet, and it’s PRICELESS
WOW: Women’s March pretends to care about anti-Semitism, trips over old Linda Sarsour tweets
‘You’re JUST as bad!’ Linda Sarsour has ZERO self-awareness and this #Charlottesville tweet proves it
