Asking for a friend who suspects that when The New York Times hands out a big slice of its op-ed page real estate to the proprietor of a wingnut welfare crack-house called the journal of America Greatness (no, I am not making them up) to publish some Conservative tone policing claptrap like this (from The New York Times today) --
Let’s Not Throw the Word Treason Around
By Christopher Buskirk
Mr. Buskirk is editor and publisher of the journal American Greatness and a contributing opinion writer.-- that maybe it isn't just out of Arthur Gregg "A.G." Sulzberger's deep commitment to journalistic integrity.
Democratic politicians should stop acting like internet trolls.
When they talk about President Trump, why are so many Democratic politicians talking about treason? Whatever they may truly believe, why are they letting their inflammatory rhetoric become decoupled from the facts?
By doing so, they are setting the country on a dangerous, unpredictable trajectory that could lead to a crisis of political legitimacy. And by indulging their own worst instincts, these Democrats are guilty of fomenting the extreme, intemperate rhetoric for which they have consistently criticized the president...
For a little context on the tone and subject matter to be found in this Teen Beat Breitbart, here are some recent articles from the (again, not making them up) journal of American Greatness:
Why smarty-pants elitists hate Real Murricans by the odious Victor Davis Hansen.And so forth.
Just how far will the crazy, fascist Left go!?! Also by Victor Davis Hansen.
Two different articles on why banning plastic straws is the New Fascism!
Sarah Jeong's white-people hating racism is even worse than plastic straw fascism!
Dennis "20 years past his sell-by-date" Prager bellyaching about how the Pope sucks and is fucking up Catholicism.
Chicago is a black-crime hell-hole and Trump could turn it around if only the coloreds would put down their Obamaphones see how awesome his is!
"If The Left Wants War Give It To Them"
In their quest to carve out a homestead in the crowded wingnut welfare niche between Tomi Lahren's steam-of-semi-consciousness idiocy and Stephen Miller's stroke mags, this band of mentally under-clocking head cheeses have strayed very far from the herd indeed. They are racist losers suffocating at the bottom of a very filthy barrel of their own making and so, with nothing left to say to anyone with more than a room-temperature IQ, they resort to trying to tone police their betters.
That much is clear.
What is much less clear is how exactly A.G. Sulzberger came to believe that it is the job of The New York Times to help them do it.
Behold, a Tip Jar!
