A battle has erupted between CNN’s Jake Tapper and left-wing Muslim activist Linda Sarsour, after Tapper called out the Women’s March group co-chaired by Sarsour after tweeting their support for convicted cop-killing domestic terrorist Assata Shakur, who has been ducking American justice in Cuba since 1984.

Shakur – aunt of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur, is a member of the far-left Black Liberation Army (BLA) and was convicted of the 1977 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foster during a shootout on the NJ Turnpike. Shakur escaped prison in 1979, and after five years on the run fled to Cuba where she currently lives under political asylum.

In light of Women’s March tweet in support of Shakur, Tapper responded:

In response, Sarsour tweeted that the very liberal Tapper had joined ‘the ranks of the alt-right to target me online.’

Sarsour then slipped into the well worn reactionary identity politics of those with no argument – suggesting that Tapper was perhaps referring to her being a Palestinian, pro-immigrant Muslim.

Nope! Tapper responded by calling Sarsour out for attacking actual feminist – Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim turned atheist and a victim of female genital mutilation (FGM).

Ali (@Ayaan) – a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School of Government and founder of a women’s rights organization, has been a vocal critic of Islam.

Jake Tapper’s tweet referring to Sarsour’s comments on Ali was in reference to a 2011 tweet in which Sarsour said Ali and was “asking 4 an a$$ whippin,’
