  • NY Times Editorial Board Hires Racist

    Can you imagine if a conservative news organization hired an open racist, what would happen? “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    LOL, the NY Times is spinning it as her just reacting to being harassed online. Basically her racism is white people's fault.

        Is this who liberals are?
        Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
        But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
        Than a fool in the eyes of God

          For the record, the NYT (and Sarah Jeong herself, per the above) agree that the language she has used in the past is unacceptable. Let's see if that continues before going overboard.
          Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

            sounds like a way to sweep it under the rug though. When the MSM does the shame thing to anyone else, they will dig up dirt from decades ago and force a person out of their job. Like Paula Deen for example.

              yep, a double standard once again - the woman is an open racist - period...

                Openly disavowing such behavior is hardly sweeping it under the rug.

                Well, yeah. But if we excuse the (brought up in the election) Trump tape because it's in the past, we don't have much to stand on here.

                  they basically blamed her behavior on OTHER people. Then promised she wouldn't do it again. It was sweeping it under the rug.

                  How about everyone gets a second chance equally? I would be for that.

                    I think they did that as a preemptive strike because they realized how hypocritical it was. Kinda like somebody being sorry they got caught, rather than sorry for doing a deed.

                    It's how politicians work - "lemme get MY version out there before you can get YOUR version...."

                        Sure - but they didn't excuse it.
                        Then promised she wouldn't do it again.
                        You have a problem with that?
                        It was sweeping it under the rug.
                        Er, no. Sweeping it under the rug would be pretending it never happened.
                        How about everyone gets a second chance equally? I would be for that.
                        Yeah, me too. Instead of condemning this, why not grant her the second chance, then point to this when others are disinclined to give someone else one?

                          to me that was excusing it. It wasn't her fault that she was racist, it was those other people's fault for making her act like them!
                          Er, no. Sweeping it under the rug would be pretending it never happened.
                          You are correct, I used the wrong phrase, Roy, er OBP

                          Yeah, me too. Instead of condemning this, why not grant her the second chance, then point to this when others are disinclined to give someone else one?
                          I guess mostly because in this case I don't think it is genuine repentance on her part.

                              I'm surprised she didn't try to claim that somebody "hacked" her Twitter account. Hey, it worked for Joy Reid.
