The controversy started in late January, when so-called “hijabi fashion” blogger, Hoda Katebi, author of the 2016 book “Tehran Streetstyle,” was interviewed by WGN Morning News anchors Larry Potash and Robin Baumgarten for a segment on Iranian fashion.
Chicago Trubune When Katebi, who wears a hijab, or Muslim supremacist headbag, pushed back against the idea that Western dress in 1970s Iran connoted more freedom for women (Iranian women dressed exactly like Western women back then, mini-skirts and all. See below), the interview got political.
Potash asked her whether Iran can be trusted when it comes to nuclear weapons, and Katebi responded with a critique of U.S. “imperialism” in the Middle East, citing “all of the violence that (the U.S.) hasn’t only created, but created the capacity for.”
“A lot of Americans might take offense to that,” Baumgarten responded. “You’re an American. You don’t sound like an American when you say things.”
