Left-wing activist and television actress Alyssa Milano has disavowed Linda Sarsour, the other informal #MeToo leader whose activism has engendered widespread accusations of anti-Semitism.
This month, Milano made headlines regarding a confrontation with her own critics. While discussing how #TimesUp is moving the conversation further on a panel at Politicon, a Los Angeles political event, she was confronted by Laura Loomer, a far-right reporter and conspiracy theorist who has been long entangled with Project Veritas.
“My question is for you, Alyssa Milano. You are friends with Linda Sarsour, and both of you ladies have positioned yourselves as speakers and representatives of the #MeToo movement,” Loomer asked Milano, referring to one of the cofounders of the wildly successful Women’s March who is also a Muslim rights activist.
“I want to ask you right now to disavow Linda Sarsour because she is a supporter of Sharia law. And under Sharia law, women are oppressed, women are forced to wear a hijab,” Loomer probed. “My question is, will you please disavow her because she is advocating for Sharia law?”
“She’s not,” Milano responded at the time. “She’s not. But thank you so much for your question.”
“I don’t even want to give that moment a second breath,” Milano tells The Advocate. “Just the fact that Laura Loomer is being considered a journalist to me means that she’s been given enough airtime.”
But Loomer was on the hunt for more. After security escorted the increasingly disruptive reporter out, she took to the internet to call Milano a “liar and fraud.”
However, Milano is disavowing Sarsour. But not because of the Islamophobic conspiracies Loomer would like readers to believe.
“Any time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. I’m disappointed in the leadership of the Women’s March that they haven’t done it adequately,” Milano says now, referring to leaders of the Women’s March who’ve refused to denounce Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan‘s anti-Semitic, homophobic, and transphobic statements.
Advocate passage ends
Can someone explain how this works? In the wake of the Pennsylvania synagogue shooting on Sunday, leaders of The Women’s March, who have openly embraced anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, held a “vigil” outside the White House to protest Antisemitism.
The “vigil” was led by none other than Linda Sarsour, proud supporter of anti-Semite Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrkhan.
The Women’s March (@womensmarch) tweeted on Sunday:
“Today we are turning our grief to action with @jewishaction to send a clear message that these anti-semitic and xenophobic attacks can never happen again.
If you’re not in DC, tune in around 3pm to our Facebook page to watch and share the livestream. http://www.facebook.com/womensmarchonwash …”

It’s interesting how they have tried to group “anti-Semitism” in with “xenophobia” trying to connect violence against the Jewish people with a broader campaign against those opposing immigration.
In a subsequent tweet, you can clearly see Linda Sarsour addressing the crowd:
“We’ve gathered outside the
@WhiteHouse with @jewishaction and communities of faith to echo the call: #WeWillOutliveThem. Tune into the livestream here: https://www.facebook.com/jewishaction.us/videos/267458627308065/ …”

The organization Jewish Action is the same group who called President Trump to stay away from any memorial service being held for victims of the Pittsburgh shooting until he denounced white supremacy.
Sarsour and other Women’s March leaders Carmen Perez and Tamkia Mallory, all consider arguably the nation’s most public anti-Semite, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan their friend. Farrakhan just last week referred to Jews as “termites” who needed to be exterminated.
MINISTER FARRAKHAN (@LouisFarrakhan) tweeted:
“I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-Termite.”…

INSANE: Engineer Ran Train Off Tracks to Damage Coronavirus HOSPITAL SHIP
An unthinkable act of possible terrorism.
A Los Angeles engineer reportedly derailed a train, sending it in the direction of the hospital ship USNS Mercy with the hopes of damaging the vessel Tuesday.
Eduardo Moreno of San Pedo is being charged with one count of train wrecking.
Prosecutors are claiming that Moreno was intentionally trying to damage the hospital ship. They allude to the possibility of Moreno being a conspiracy theorist of some sort, evidently believing that the hospital ship was going to be used for nefarious purposes.
Moreno is said to have crashed a Pacific Harbor Line train, running it off the rails and sending it careening through a barricade to the Port of Los Angeles’ docks. The train crashed through several barriers and fences, crossing over two gravel parking lots. It ceased moving before reaching the Mercy, coming to rest just before the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
No one was injured from the derailing of the train, but a leakage of fuel from the machine required a hazmat team to respond to the incident.
Moreno allegedly told investigators that he was “suspicious” of the ship, not believing that “the ship is what they say it’s for.” The locomotive engineer reportedly went on to say that “you only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”
A Department of Justice press release on Moreno’s arrest and criminal charge describes the man as admitting to derailing the train with the intention of damaging the ship.
The Mercy docked at the Port of Los Angeles over the weekend. The vessel in present in the area to assist in containment measures for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, in a similar fashion to the hospital ship USNS Comfort’s presence in New York City.
Derailing a train with the intention of damaging a hospital ship is an extreme criminal act, to put it lightly. The incident may have possible terrorist ramifications if it’s made clear that Moreno wanted to damage the ship for overt political purposes.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor this situation.
Video surfaced of the halted train and the damage it inflicted on the municipal docks on Tuesday.
