NYT Op-ed Glorifies Louis Farrakhan’s Million Man March

October 19, 2020

The New York Times published an op-ed on Saturday glorifying Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s Million Man March, unsurprisingly neglecting to mention his raging anti-Semitism.

“Today the New York Times ran an oped about the Million Man March and Louis Farrakhan. If you read the oped and knew nothing about Farrakhan, you would think he was a gentleman,” tweeted Bari Weiss, a former editor and writer for the NYT’s op-ed page.

Weiss went on to quote some of Farrakhan’s Jew-hating vitriol: “Pedophilia and sexual perversion institutionalized in Hollywood and the entertainment industries can be traced to Talmudic principles and Jewish influence. Not Jewish influence, Satanic influence under the name of Jew.”

Columnist Ira Stoll noted the Times’ hypocrisy for publishing an editorial a day before the Farrakhan one denouncing President Trump for “toxic rhetoric,” “vile language” and “crude insults.” The editorial stated, “Mr. Trump doesn’t just mock his enemies. He demonizes and dehumanizes them.” Stoll wrote, “The same could be said of Farrakhan, but when he does it, the Times headline writers cheer him on for his ‘great feat.’”
