NY Times Opinion Editor Quits Over the Tom Cotton OpEd

Liberal snowflakes don’t like opposing viewpoints published in their paper.

Washinton Examiner

The editor of the New York Times editorial page has resigned after a controversial opinion piece written by Republican Sen. Tom Cotton caused major backlash.

The newspaper announced James Bennet’s resignation Sunday. It is effective immediately, the paper said.

New York Times employees and readers slammed the publication for running an opinion piece by Cotton calling for the federal government to send in the military to cities across the country to quell protests against police brutality. Staff members said the piece endangered the lives of their black colleagues.

Their black colleagues should be more concerned over their fellow blacks.

Eileen Murphy, a New York Times spokeswoman, blamed a “rushed editorial process” on the publication.

In other words, we let the truth slip without having the opportunity to censor.

“As a result, we’re planning to examine both short term and long term changes, to include expanding our fact checking operation and reducing the number of op-eds we publish,” Murphy said in a statement Thursday.

Speaking of “fact checking”, Gina Chérélus is a New York Times “fact-checker”:

 

 

 

 

In an email to staff on Sunday, publisher A.G. Sulzberger said he and Bennet “agreed that it would take a new team to lead the department through a period of considerable change.” But, he said, the publication will not back away from sharing ideas from across the political spectrum, “particularly those we disagree with.”

 

Bullshit. Anything that rag disagrees with is raked over the coals or dismissed entirely. They killed a story that would have shown a close link between ACORN, Project Vote, and the Obama campaign because it would have been “a game changer.”  They refused to cover a scandal involving one of their major shareholders. They refused to print an OpEd by former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. which called for fiscal responsibility and pay/promotion based on merit. What a concept.

Tom Cotton’s OpEd called for President Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act of 1807 in order to protect communities from “nihilist criminals” rioting after Floyd’s death. In cases where there is total anarchy in the streets, it’s the duty of State Governors to deploy the National Guard to restore order and protect law-abiding citizens. 

 

“These rioters, if not subdued, not only will destroy the livelihoods of law-abiding citizens but will also take more innocent lives,” Cotton wrote. “Many poor communities that still bear scars from past upheavals will be set back still further.”

 

It’s common for the president to deploy the National Guard to quell riots.

Examples:

After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, President George W. Bush used the Insurrection Act to place armed soldiers throughout U.S. airports. 

His father, President George H.W. Bush, used the insurrection law to send federal troops to Los Angeles in 1992 to restore order in the city after the riots that erupted after a jury acquitted police officers who were caught on camera beating up Rodney King.

The elder Bush also sent federal troops to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, at the request of the territorial government, in 1989 to restore order from civil unrest after Hurricane Hugo. 

Among the most dramatic events occurred in 1957 when Arkansas’ Democrat Gov. Orval Faubus tried to face down Republican President Dwight Eisenhower over desegregation of schools. 

……Other cases in the 20th century would include notable presidents.  

In 1946, President Harry Truman, a Democrat, sent federal troops to act against striking railroad workers. 

……In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, ordered federal troops to stop race riots in 20 cities across the United States. The first of the riots occurred in Chicago, erupting in part from the post-war social tensions and competition over jobs.

 

The rampaging “protesters” have killed 17 people so far, including black lives that supposedly matter. Cities are in ruin. NY city has also sustained extensive damage but the fags at the NY Times get their panties in a wad over the suggestion that troops be deployed to stop it.

  1. Interesting that the black snowflake did not use her own name (or a variation of it) as her twitter handle, but used something that seemed to be another totally reasonable name. I guess she was trying to distance her views from having consequences on her work life.
