As liberal universities continue to shut down events featuring conservative speakers, one college used taxpayer funds to have a pro-Sharia law speaker at its school.

Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers of the Women’s March and a pro-Sharia advocate, has been invited to give the commencement speech for the City University of New York Graduate School of Public Health on June 1, Fox News reported.

“I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater,” school dean Ayman El-Mohandes’ chief of staff Barbara Aaron said.

But not everyone is as “delighted” as Aaron and El-Mohandes.

Democrat Assemblyman Dov Hikind said that Sarsour’s position on Sharia law makes her unfit to serve as a commencement speaker.

“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists,” he said. “She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing.”

Some of Sarsour’s pro-Sharia opinions on social media include the following:
