With so much of our political and cultural moment steeped in chaos and confusion, Americans everywhere are turning their lonely eyes in search of a savior who will swoop down and redeem us all from this mess. Who might that singular being be? The answer should’ve been obvious: Courtney Love.
Yesterday, rock’s wonder woman took to Twitter to blast the abhorrent Linda Sarsour. Love was particularly perturbed by the activist’s campaign to raise money for an Ohio woman who claims to have been the victim of a hate crime, despite the local police telling a very different story.
“You’re a vile disgrace to women and all mankind” Love tweeted at Sarsour. Predictably, an army of trolls reported for duty, trying to overpower Love, but she had been through much worse and didn’t budge. “I worked my ass off my entire life to defend women. I didn’t create fake stories and lie about them nor rip people off financially,” she thundered. But when Sarsour entered the fray to do what she always does—pass off any criticism of her actions, no matter how grounded in fact, as “veiled anti-Muslim rhetoric”—Love would stand it no more. “That’s my point,” she replied to Sarsour. “I never mentioned any religion. you just confirmed to me you’re an anti-semite anti American fraud. Goodbye. I’m done with u.”
God bless you, Courtney Love. And America, next time you’re in the mood to elect an entertainer as your commander in chief, put on “Live Through This” and ponder the beauty of a truth-telling, ass-kicking President Love.
