My first reaction at this was wow! My second reaction was anger. The Daily Wire wrote about this story after Linda Sarsour sent out these tweets.
Sarsour is the jihadist who has been leading the Democrat Women’s March movement along with calling for jihad against President Trump to a Muslim audience. Her defenders said she meant for the individuals she spoke to be enlightened but if you listen closely, she never used those words, and it sounded very angry.
As you know, there always will be thieves and scammers when it comes to natural disasters. As we as a country show our best, there are some out there that are just the worse of, the worse. This tweet by Sarsour looks innocent in nature, but if you look a lot deeper, we’ve got problems.

Rebuilding in areas impacted by Harvey will be most challenging for marginalized communities. Nearly a quarter of Houstonians live in poverty — approximately 550,000 people. We also estimate that there are 575,000 immigrants in the Houston metro area. We will work to ensure that Harvey’s most vulnerable victims have access to critical services from first response and basic needs to healthcare, housing and transportation.
Together we will organize and advocate for our devastated communities, shining a spotlight on inequalities that emerge in the restoration of lives, livelihoods, and homes, amplifying the needs of hard-hit communities, and providing legal assistance for residents wrongfully denied government support.
When people started checking out the fund, Sarsour was redirecting her followers to donate money to the Hurricane victims; this is what happened:
Personally, I think it's disgusting to try to get people to donate to a political organization using a natural disaster as cover. https://t.co/j7S16sL3Wv

As Stephen Miller stated, there is a link to a Political Action Committee called Organize Texas. Who does this?! How dead inside does one have to be to bilk people out of money they believe is heading for charity to fund a PAC? But then again, let’s be honest. She is only scamming liberals because they are the only ones who would donate to an organization she recommends, but it’s still wrong.
Reading the Super PAC, it is forthcoming in stating it will use the donated money to agitate and divide the affected. I only wish I could cost them funds.
That’s why everybody is always warned about researching before donating. This time there was a .gov site listing legitimate charities who would actually give your donations to the hurricane relief, and it’s not set up under the Obama administration. That’s a huge plus!
