The so-called mainstream media are ramping up their disinformation campaign for the November 2020 election.
They will do anything to deliver a victory to Joe Biden and flip the senate blue.
But one New York Times editor got purged for an unbelievable reason.
The murder of Minneapolis resident George Floyd sparked protests that soon became violent mostly due to radical agitators like the terrorist group Antifa.
Instead of condemning the violence, the so-called mainstream media encouraged it.
At the height of this absurdity, an MSNBC field reporter said the protests were peaceful while a large building fire raged behind him.
In response to the rioting and looting that was spiraling out of control, a Morning Consult poll showed that 58% of Americans supported sending in the military to quash the violence if the National Guard proved inadequate.
Even a plurality of Democrats agreed with the proposal.
Around the same time, the New York Times approached Arkansas senator Tom Cotton about writing an op-ed in defense of the military response argument.
Cotton accepted the offer and wrote an op-ed for the paper.
For the people still clinging to the misconception that the “paper of record” is nonpartisan or perhaps only slightly left-of-center, they are disabused of that after the response to Cotton’s op-ed.
Leftists at the paper essentially staged a coup over the publication of Cotton’s piece.
The brain trust of the Times bent the knee to the mob, as liberals are apt to do, and issued an apology over Cotton’s op-ed.
They claimed Cotton’s piece didn’t pass editorial standards and the publishing process was hasty.
However, they couldn’t point to anything inaccurate in the op-ed.
The Times has moved so far to the left, they can publish op-eds from Vladimir Putin, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and other controversial figures, but a Republican senator with a Harvard Law degree is beyond the pale.
Cotton’s legitimacy is even bolstered by the fact that he sounded the alarm on the threat of the Wuhan virus before anyone else in government or media.
This is the mindset of the radical left.
The gravest sin of all is wrong-think.
In the wake of the scandal, New York Times opinion editor James Bennett resigned his post.
This is a clear sign that radicals like Nikole Hannah-Jones, author of the fraudulent 1619 Project, are in control of the New York Times.
When a sitting U.S. senator can’t write an op-ed that echoes the sentiments of 58% of Americans, it’s time for people to acknowledge what leftists are doing.
They will continually push for power, and they won’t stop, especially if weakness is shown.
The New York Times has proven itself to be weak, so it now belongs to the mob.
This is how the left has hollowed out every institution in America.
Academia and entertainment media are just as cancerous.
The problem won’t get fixed until more people have the courage to stand up to the mob and say “no.”
