The New York Times is up there with CNN as some of the most vile and disgusting fake news that there is in this country. Truly, the only difference between the two is that CNN is also a cable “news” organization. Seeing how utterly fascistic and communistic the general narrative that is found in the NYT is, it’s not at all surprising to see someone who does not fully support such ideals be bullied and pushed out of the company.
Bari Weiss had been writing for the NYT for the past few years, following the election of Donald Trump, supposedly, according to her, because the Times was so wrong about who would be elected that it clearly needed a better understanding of the country that it covers.
Of course, she herself HATES Trump and has outright alleged he was sympathetic to neo-Nazis (which we shall see is rather hilarious in a moment) and would likely cancel anyone who is pro-Trump were she to have the power (she advocated for censoring Alex Jones), however, due to her not adhering in full with the communistic rhetoric of the company, at least in everything she wanted to write, Weiss has decided to resign from the NYT. In her resignation letter, Weiss utterly crushed the company by exposing precisely who they are: elitist, communist bullies who are wholly intolerant while preaching “tolerance”.
And yes, she is a massive hypocrite, but she is ripping the NYT, so let’s hear her out for a second, while still keeping in mind the fact that she is just as despicable.
In her resignation letter, Weiss lambasts the Times for being a paper more concerned with getting clicks from people on Twitter than actually being remotely objective or journalistically proper. “Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor. As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space. Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions.”
In essence, Weiss is accusing the NYT of writing stories that will get them on Twitter’s “trending” list rather than writing stories of importance and significance to the vast majority of the country.
Later, Weiss takes note of some of the personal experiences she has had while working for the communist paper: “My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m ‘writing about the Jews again.’ Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly ‘inclusive’ one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.”
One, I told you that it was rather hilarious that she essentially called Trump a Nazi when she herself had been called that. Two, this is not at all unexpected behavior from communists. They HATE anyone who does not think like them and in this day and age when literal crime is hardly punished, such people feel comfortable showing their truly monstrous side. Communists are hateful bullies who somehow have deluded themselves into thinking they are angels doing God’s work. They are awful people, the embodiment of intolerance and hatred itself.
To me, it is EXTREMELY ironic that ANYONE at the New York Times would accuse someone just slightly right of Marx (and Weiss isn’t exactly Ronald Reagan) to be a Nazi when the publication itself has published the following article: “THE ART OF PROPAGANDA – By Adolf Hitler,” written June 22nd, 1941.
The New York Times published a piece by Adolf Hitler on the same day as Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi operation to invade the Soviet Union, and all-the-while the guy was killing Jews and other political opponents in concentration camps.
I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that the NYT chose to publish a piece by Adolf Hitler, or the following piece, written on November 21st, 1922:
Headline: “NEW POPULAR IDOL RISES IN BAVARIA; Hitler Credited With Extraordinary Powers of Swaying Crowds to His Will. FORMS GRAY-SHIRTED ARMY Armed With Blackjacks and Revolvers and Well Disciplined, They Obey Orders Implicitly. LEADER A REACTIONARY is Anti Red and Anti-Semitic, and Demands Strong Government for a United Germany.”
Yes, long headline, but this was a different time. At any rate, the piece later on said the following:
“But several reliable, well-informed sources confirmed the idea that Hitler’s anti-Semitism was not so genuine or violent as it sounded, and that he was merely using anti-Semitic propaganda as a bait to catch masses of followers and keep them aroused, enthusiastic and inline for the time when his organization is perfected and sufficiently powerful to be employed effectively for political purposes.”
We often times rip “experts” and supposed, anonymous “sources” from people who act in bad faith, but I don’t think anyone could top “our sources say that Hitler is not as anti-Semitic or violent as people think he is.”
This is on record for The New York Times, and it’s not like featuring egregious personalities is anything new for them. They have, just in the last decade, allowed for op-eds from Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir Putin to be published on their paper. Hitler, Erdogan and Putin all enjoy or have enjoyed a great deal of liberty and even veneration from The New York Times.
So again, for anyone in the NYT to accuse anyone else of being a Nazi is EXTREMELY RICH (though for Weiss to play victim to such attacks is equally rich, considering she does the same to Trump).
Returning to Weiss’ resignation letter, she noted that “if a person’s ideology is in keeping with the new orthodoxy, they and their work remain unscrutinized. Everyone else lives in fear of the digital thunderdome. Online venom is excused so long as it is directed at the proper targets.”
These people claim to be “tolerant” and “inclusive” but have an outright allergic reaction to a Republican Senator writing that we should use the military to defeat the riots. They claim to be tolerant people while not tolerating anyone’s opinion should said opinion dissent from the pre-approved one. If you even remotely do not share much hatred for Trump, you are compared to Hitler himself (again, an extremely rich thing for anyone at the paper to do).
Anyone right of Karl Marx is considered a danger, a Nazi, and less than human. These people go around calling other people bigots when there are no bigger bigots than them.
At any rate, Weiss continued by excoriating the paper, taking note that Tom Cotton’s op-ed cost two people their jobs, all-the-while the paper celebrates an interview with a disgusting anti-Semite and conspiracy theorist who, to Weiss’s words, “believes in lizard Illuminati.”
Of course, considering the paper is willing to have an op-ed from Adolf Hitler, it’s not really so surprising that they have such a high regard for known anti-Semites.
Furthermore, Weiss writes: “The paper of record is, more and more, the record of those living in a distant galaxy, one whose concerns are profoundly removed from the lives of most people. This is a galaxy in which, to choose just a few recent examples, the Soviet space program is lauded for its ‘diversity’; the doxing of teenagers in the name of justice is condoned; and the worst caste systems in human history includes the United States alongside Nazi Germany.”
Considering the history revisionism that the Times is involved in with its “1619 project”, it’s not at all surprising that these people live in the land of Looney Tunes, and even then, I would assume Buggs Bunny has more of a sense of reason than the people most often featured on that communist publication. Time and time again, Buggs Bunny showed considerably more wit than any of the people I have seen write for the Times, if I’m honest. I wouldn’t be surprised if he could trick them by flipping a sign that says “commie season.”
They are people who adamantly hate this country and spend their lives and careers excoriating it. That they compare America and Nazi Germany for their “caste system” is no surprise to someone who expects such nonsensical and offensive crap from human garbage like the NYT.
Anyway, Weiss concludes with a few things, such as a “set of rules” for writing for the NYT, including “Rule One: Speak your mind at your own peril. Rule Two: Never risk commissioning a story that goes against the narrative. Rule Three: Never believe an editor or publisher who urges you to go against the grain. Eventually, the publisher will cave to the mob, the editor will get fired or reassigned, and you’ll be hung out to dry.”
One does not have free speech when writing for the New York Times. They either speak the way the Times wants them to speak, whether willingly or not, or they can find themselves in an unemployment office.
This, my friends, is communism. Not that I needed to remind you of that.
In the end, Weiss quotes Adolph Ochs, former owner of the NYT, in a famous statement he made in 1896: “to make of the columns of The New York Times a forum for the consideration of all questions of public importance, and to that end to invite intelligent discussion from all shades of opinion.”
Ochs wouldn’t even be allowed to write for the Times’ opinion piece nowadays with such a mentality, let alone be allowed to own the paper. Such an opinion runs contrary to the Left’s. The idea that people be allowed to have differing opinions and, worse yet, be allowed a platform through which to express such opinions is considered a threat to democracy itself in the minds of the politically insane.
Of course, Weiss herself has hypocritically gone against Ochs’ words in her trying to cancel Alex Jones, and I doubt she would be willing to have an honest debate with a pro-Trumper, but at least she gives us some ammo to use against the Times.
The NYT is garbage. Sane people are better off not reading it or contributing to it. While I do not exactly have much sympathy for Weiss, considering she herself has acted in that exact same manner, with the exact same attacks thrown at Trump and his supporters, I am at the very least glad that she attacked the NYT like she did on the way out.
Love it when the Left goes after its own.
“A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
