Every so often a story comes along which personifies everything that is wrong with this country:
“The New York Times’ newest editorial hire has a history of racist tweets against white people.
NYT announced on Wednesday that they hired Sarah Jeong to join their editorial board. Jeong previously wrote for the Verge and authored “The Internet of Garbage,” a book about online harassment and free speech.
Shortly after Jeong’s hire, Twitter users unearthed old tweets in which she expressed an extreme distaste for white people.
“Dumbass f**king white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” she tweeted in 2016.
Another tweet reads, “oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get from being cruel to old white men. …”
The New York Times has released a statement defending hiring this woman. It goes without saying that countless people like Paula Deen, Roseanne and most recently Papa John have been destroyed by leftwing social justice lynch mobs for saying much less than Sarah Jeong. Thousands of ordinary people we never hear about have lost their jobs and suffered in silence because of this vicious “call out” culture.
Sarah Jeong is one of the liberal elites though. She works for the apex of the mainstream media, The New York Times Editorial Board, which sneers at ordinary people and condemns them as bigots. White men laughably aren’t a “protected class” (where is our white privilege?) whatever that means. Thus, Sarah Jeong can be as hateful and racist as she wants, say things that would ruin the careers of a White man like John Schnatter and get away with it. The taboos of our politically correct culture about “racism” only apply to the hoi polloi who have the wrong race, sex and politics.
It is possible to be a mainstream racist and to destroy other people professionally by calling them racists. That’s because the “mainstream” is anti-White. Are we immoral people for taking our own side and rejecting these taboos? Do we have a legitimate grievance about the “mainstream”?
