The New York Times Sanitizes Sarsour

Linda Sarsour has been interviewed for another post 9-11 piece, and yet again, the truth emerges as one of the losers:

For Linda Sarsour, 41, challenging stereotypes comes with the territory. As a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington in 2017, “I demystified every stereotype possible as a Muslim woman in hijab on the highest stage in America,” she said. But the platform also came with public scrutiny; in 2019, Ms. Sarsour and two other leaders of the Women’s March stepped down from the organization amid complaints that the New York-based coalition was too insular.

That’s one heck of an interesting way to say “antisemitic.”

What makes this worse is the NY Times cannot even claim ignorance – if you follow the link on the words “way too insular”, you get to this article, which spells things out properly:

This seems to be another attempt to sanitize Sarsour – to paint her as heroine and not villain.

Incidentally, the Women’s March press release that announced Sarsour and gang’s departures seems to have been flushed down the memory hole.
