What Tammy Duckworth tweeted after Thursday’s hearing



WASHINGTON DC – Illinois' junior US Senator Tammy Duckworth joined with the protesters supporting Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford outside the Capitol during Thursday's hearing. Illinois' junior senator is with radical Leftist Linda Sarsour – who led the 2017 Women's March protesting Donald Trump's inauguration.

Sarsour spoke at a Muslim conference in Chicago in July 2017 where, among other things, she said:

I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad. That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or in the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.

Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community, it is not to assimilate and please any other people and authority… Our obligation is to our young people, is to our women, to make sure our women are protected in our community."

Our top priority and even higher than all those other priorities is to please Allah and only Allah.

A video of the speech: 

Duckworth – a veteran that lost both her legs fighting Islam extremists as a helicopter pilot – is staunchly opposed to confirming Brett Kavanaugh to fill retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's 9th seat.
