Kudos To Disloyalty, Anti-Semitism, And Obscenity – OpEd

By

A good index of how sick our culture has become can be found in a New York Times editorial on March 22.

It hails the three most radical members of Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib for “dismantling one of the most tiresome and inaccurate stereotypes in politics: that women lawmakers are inherently more civil, more collaborative, less power-hungry and less personally ambitious than men.” It would be great to know how many Americans think this development is a good thing.

What is most striking about the editorial are the three examples it chose to prove its point.

It cited Ocasio-Cortez’s plea for more primary challenges against moderate Democrats: “Long story short, I need you to run for office.”

It cited Omar’s tweet saying American foreign policy is bought by Jews: “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

It (partially) cited Tlaib’s comment about the president: “We’re gonna impeach the [expletive]!” Note: she called Trump a motherf*****.

By celebrating disloyalty, anti-Semitism, and obscenity, the New York Times lost whatever moral credibility it had left. We certainly don’t want to read any more of its editorials lecturing the Catholic Church.
