In the runup to Thanksgiving, Women's March leader Linda Sarsour tried to fend off the growing criticism of her embrace of Louis Farrakhan — without actually calling out his endless hate speech.
She did apologize, sort of, issuing a statement admitting, "We should have been faster and clearer in helping people understand our values and our commitment to fighting anti-Semitism. We regret that."
She also insisted, "Every member of our movement matters to us — including our incredible Jewish and LGBTQ members. We are deeply sorry for the harm we have caused, but we see you, we love you, and we are fighting with you."
But this was plainly an effort to get something on the record at a time when few were paying attention so that she could pretend she's resolved the issue.
