Abstract

This article focuses on the rhetoric of American Muslim activist Linda Sarsour. Sarsour makes use of social media to pose a critique of American society, in the style of an American jeremiad. Sarsour serves as a jeremiadic preacher, who lambastes the chosen American people for straying from their ideals of liberty and justice, and incites them to fulfill their destiny as beacons of hope for racial harmony and respect for human rights.
