The Democrats’ most established propaganda arm has been completely overtaken by the hard left.
The New York Times is now being controlled by radical anti-American activists who don’t believe in the Constitution.
And one Times writer left the paper in revolt after one horrific incident.
Leftists are trying to convince America that cancel culture is not real… and then canceling anyone who disagrees with them.
That’s essentially what happened to centrist writer Bari Weiss, who left the “paper of record” and wrote a scathing resignation letter.
Perhaps the breaking point for Weiss occurred when the far-left employees at the paper staged a revolt after the op-ed editor published a piece from Arkansas senator Tom Cotton.
Apparently the Times can publish op-eds from Nicolas Maduro, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the Taliban, but a sitting Republican senator is simply a bridge too far.
Weiss was brought to the paper in 2017 in the wake of Donald Trump’s election victory to bring a fresh perspective on why the Democrats lost.
Weiss, who isn’t even really conservative and hates Trump, was supposed to illuminate Times readers on a right-of-center frame.
The paper didn’t have the gall to hire pro-Trump writers, so they found a centrist with moderately conservative views to be the standard-bearer for the right.
Nevertheless, even Weiss was too loud for the left-wing echo chamber at the paper.
In her withering letter, Weiss wrote:
“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.”
According to the left, Weiss, who is Jewish, is both a Nazi and yet too pro-Jewish at the same time.
Only the left could construct such nonsense.
Weiss continued by talking about the purity tests at the Times:
“Why edit something challenging to our readers, or write something bold only to go through the numbing process of making it ideologically kosher, when we can assure ourselves of job security (and clicks) by publishing our 4000th op-ed arguing that Donald Trump is a unique danger to the country and the world?”
This is obvious for anyone who still reads the paper with a critical eye.
The paper wouldn’t dare publish an intact piece from an unabashed Trump supporter because that would expose readers to the actual truth.
Writing nonstop hit pieces on Trump and his followers has become the stock and trade of the paper.
Weiss’s resignation leaves no doubt that the left’s efforts to cancel and harass people are ratcheting up.
Weiss’s letter is the smoking gun critics of the Times have been waiting for.
