  • Bari Weiss' Resignation Letter to NY Times

    07/14/2020 8:48:08 AM PDT · by AggregateThreat · 70 replies
    It is with sadness that I write to tell you that I am resigning from The New York Times. I joined the paper with gratitude and optimism three years ago. I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their home. The reason for this effort was clear: The paper’s failure to anticipate the outcome of the 2016 election meant that it didn’t have a firm grasp of the country it covers. Dean Baquet and others...
  • ‘CONSTANT BULLYING’: Writer/Editor Quits New York Times, Rips Rag: If You ‘Speak Your Mind … You’ll Be Hung Out To Dry’

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 07/14/2020 | Eric A. Blair
    Bari Weiss, a staff editor and writer in The New York Times’ opinion section, resigned on Tuesday — then scorched the liberal “paper of record” and its condoning of “constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views” and an environment where she said “self-censorship has become the norm.”Weiss put out an open letter addressed to New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger, opening with the fact that after President Trump was elected in 2016, the paper hired her in an effort to understand the perspective of the 60 million-plus Americans who voted for him. The letter was fierce. [T]he lessons...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Liberal writer/editor Bari Weiss is now not “woke” enough to work at the former newspaper that still calls itself the New York Times. Finding herself out of step with increasingly radical left staff at the Times and no longer willing to toe the line of the daily narratives that Times editors coordinate with the Democratic Party, Weiss tendered her resignation with a letter that will leave the pants of the organization’s honchos smoldering. The letter is a work of written art, and completely revealing of the internal cancel culture that is dominant at the Times, and why no one should...
  • Lincoln Project video editor is out over crude tweets about female anatomy

    Washington Post ^ | July 14, 2020 | Amanda Becker
    A video editor who shaped the buzzy Lincoln Project ads needling President Trump is no longer affiliated with the Republican organization over a series of past tweets in which he used offensive slang for female anatomy to insult political rivals. Ben Howe, who came of age politically making anti-Obama ads during the rise of the tea party, did not publicly tout his work for the super PAC formed by a group of high-level Republican operatives who have broken ranks with the party over Trump’s presidency until a recent interview with Vanity Fair. He was described in the article as “the...
  • Chicago's mayor donned a lime green cowboy hat and said she'd send around a 'Census Cowboy' in an amusing video urging people to fill out the 2020 Census

    In a bizarre video announcement, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced that a "Census Cowboy" will now be going to the 10 communities in the city with the lowest Census completion rates to urge residents to fill out the form. "Giddy up, Chicago. I'm calling on the Census Cowboy to help improve our Census response rates across Chicago. Make the Census Cowboy proud by filling out the Census today at my2020census.gov," Lightfoot said in a tweet of the video. Lightfoot started her speech by comparing Chicago to Gotham City from "Batman." "When I was a kid, I loved the "Batman" TV show....

    Comic Book Resources ^ | 12th July 2020 | NOAH DOMINGUEZ
    Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated producer Tony Cervone confirmed a long-standing theory by explaining that the show's incarnation of classic Scooby-Doo! character Velma Dinkley was, in fact, written as a gay woman. Cervone interjected during an argument between two Scooby-Doo! fans in the comment section of an Instagram post, which had depicted Velma and the character of Marcie Fleach in a romantic relationship. One commenter decried the post on the grounds that Mystery Incorporated saw Velma in a relationship with Shaggy Rogers, while another cited previous revelations about the show pertaining to how Velma and Marcie were ostensibly both bisexual and how...

    The American Mind ^ | 07/13/20 | Clifford Humphrey
    A year before the British surrender at Yorktown, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail: “I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Mathematicks and Philosophy.” It’s a simple point: times defined by the former are not times defined by the latter. C. Bradley Thompson understandably desires that Americans “rediscover the philosophy of Americanism,” the philosophy—at least as he understands it—of the American Founding. What Thompson misunderstands, though, is that ours are once again times of war and politics; no mere philosophy can save us now. Americans of the founders’ age could realize the...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/09/2020 | Howard Bland
    Major Democrat media figurehead and CNN golden goose Don Lemon’s  recent interview with Hollywood star Terry Crews was a complete and utter catastrophe for the Black Lives Matter narrative. Lemon essentially – no, not essentially, literally admitted on live television that Black Lives Matter has absolutely nothing to do with 97% of black victims of violent crime. I’ll explain why after briefly reviewing Don Lemon’s shambolic performance: First, Lemon attempted to con his guest – an ordinary if famous black man simply wondering why yet another horrendous black body-count over an American holiday weekend didn’t arouse the slightest acknowledgement...

    Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero. First of all, there's her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a...

    Cancel Culture is about to claim another scalp: George Orwell. And that’s just the first news item in today’s edition of Insanity Wrap. I hope you’re sitting down, because in addition to Orwell, we also have biological sex as white oppression and our future as human-dolphin hybrids. If you thought yesterday’s Insanity Wrap was crazy, you haven’t had to wrap your brain around nothin’ yet. Let us go now to Twitter, where “journalist, writer, filmmaker, and musician” Ben Norton apparently felt the iron was finally hot enough to re-pimp his 2016 cancel culture essay ridiculing 1984 and Animal Farm author...

    A man found guilty of plotting terrorist attacks on crowded central London tourist attractions including a Gay Pride march was jailed for life on Thursday. Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 29, was told he must serve at least 25 years for preparing acts of terrorism. During his trial, Woolwich Crown Court heard how Chowdhury, from Luton north of London, divulged his plans to men he thought were his friends but who were in fact covert anti-terrorism officers. He told them he was considering targeting crowded central London tourist attractions and a Pride in London event, police said in a statement. “He also told...

    CNN host Don Lemon said nobody is perfect, not even Jesus Christ. During a conversation with network host Chris Cuomo on Monday night, Lemon said that much of history taught to children is "propaganda" and revised basic biblical doctrine by saying Jesus, the central figure of Christianity, was "not perfect." "Jesus Christ — if that's who you believe in, Jesus Christ — admittedly, was not perfect when he was here on this Earth," Lemon said. "So, why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?" "No one is perfect. Nothing is perfect. Not even the...

Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.
