On Monday afternoon, the Women’s March founder publicly called upon four founding members to step down for working against the group’s desire for “a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people.”

Among those four was Linda Sarsour, and Teresa Shook requested her resignation for, in part, allowing “anti-Semitism and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform,” according to Shook’s Facebook post.

Sarsour has been a central figure in the Women’s March movement since its first Washington, D.C., rally on Jan. 21, 2017, one day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Shook concluded her post vowing “to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

Although Sarsour, a Muslim Palestinian-American, has had a reputation as a rabble-rousing anti-Semite for years, with much evidence of it available for anyone to view on her own social media, it appeared to be a complete surprise to Shook.

In 2011, Sarsour reportedly tweeted — then later deleted — a desire to mutilate the genitals of anti-Sharia and women’s rights activists Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

On that same day, apparently still upset at Gabriel, she tweeted, “@yazham Girl do I wanna take down Brigitte Gabriel?! She said she walks into stores in Arlington, let her try walking streets of Bay Ridge!”

Ali remarked on the acrimony on Fox News shortly after the first Women’s March.

“Miss Sarsour is hostile to me, not because she knows me, but because she’s a fake feminist,” Ali told host Martha MacCallum.

“She is a defender of Sharia law,” she added. “There is no principle that demeans, degrades and dehumanizes women more than the principle of Sharia law.”

In 2012 Sarsour claimed that the so-called “underwear bomber” was actually a U.S. operative, apparently planted to stir anti-Islamic sentiment.

“Underwear bomber was the #CIA all along,” she tweeted. “Why did I already know that?! Shame on us - scaring the American people.”

Although one of the founding principles of the Women’s March was to instill harmony among the races, Sarsour expressed exasperation for “White women” in a 2014 tweet.

“How many times do we have to tell White women that we do not need to be saved by them?” she asked. “Is there code language I need to use to get thru?”

A Japanese proverb suggests, “When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.” Sarsour’s friends tell volumes.

Chief among them is Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who most recently referred to Jews as “termites.”

In 2014 Sarsour wrote, “Can't learn or teach about the history of Islam in America without talking about the Nation of Islam (NOI). #MYLS2014

Last year she posted on Facebook a 2015 clip of a short speech she’d delivered at a Farrakhan rally marking the 20th anniversary of the 1995 Million Man March. She penned with the video, “2 years ago today. I stand by every word.”

Sarsour also spoke in support of another woman, Rasmea Odeh, who was convicted of taking part in a bombing that killed two students while she was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist organization.

Odeh was released from an Israeli prison as part of a prisoner swap and made her way to the United States where she became a naturalized citizen. She was eventually stripped of her U.S. citizenship and deported for failure to disclose on her application either her ties to terrorism or her conviction.

Turning up the heat further, Sarsour asked participants at the 54th annual Islamic Society of North America convention in Chicago to resist the president, avoid assimilation into American society, and obey only Allah.

“Our No. 1 priority is to protect our community,” she said. “It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority. Our top priority is to please Allah, and only Allah."

Even rocker Courtney Love Cobain was aware of Sarsour’s reputation and wanted to have nothing to do with her. Addressing Sarsour directly, she tweeted, “You're a vile disgrace to women and all mankind @lsarsour

But until Monday this was apparently all news to Teresa Shook.

Her surprise is reminiscent of the closing scene in the classic Humphrey Bogart film “Casablanca.”

As police Captain Renault, played by Claude Rains, accepts his winnings from a croupier, he tells Bogart, “I'm shocked! Shocked to find that gambling is going on in here.”

And Shook is shocked to find hate and anti-Semitism in her organization. Got it.
