NY Times Goes Full SJW

Posted on | February 13, 2017 | Comments Off on NY Times Goes Full SJW

Notice the adjectives and adverbs in this “news” article:

Staff members on Capitol Hill recall Stephen Miller, the 31-year-old White House adviser behind many of President Trump’s most contentious executive orders, as the guy from Jeff Sessions’s office who made their inboxes cry for mercy.
As a top aide to Mr. Sessions, the conservative Alabama senator, Mr. Miller dispatched dozens and dozens of bombastic emails to congressional staff members and reporters in early 2013 when the Senate was considering a big bipartisan immigration overhaul. Mr. Miller slammed the evils of “foreign labor” and pushed around nasty news articles on proponents of compromise, like Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
One exhausted Senate staff member, forwarding a Miller-gram to a reporter at the time, wrote: “His latest. And it’s only 11:45 a.m.”
The ascent of Mr. Miller from far-right gadfly with little policy experience to the president’s senior policy adviser came as a shock to many of the staff members who knew him from his seven years in the Senate. A man whose emails were, until recently, considered spam by many of his Republican peers is now shaping the Trump administration’s core domestic policies with his economic nationalism and hard-line positions on immigration.
But his unlikely rise is emblematic of a White House where unconventional résumés rule — where the chief strategist is Stephen K. Bannon, until recently the head of the flame-throwing right-wing website Breitbart News, and the president himself is a former reality television star who before winning the nation’s highest office had never shown much interest in the arcana of governing.
Yet all three men are bound by a belief in an America-first economic policy that has suddenly moved from the fringes of American politics to the Oval Office.

You see that what is being discussed here — the “bipartisan” immigration bill of 2013 — is the corrupt “Gang of Eight” amnesty, in which Rubio betrayed the Tea Party conservatives who had helped him get elected to the Senate in 2010. Enforcing our immigration laws is, according to this New York Times editorial masquerading as a “news” article, a “far-right” fringe idea. Only “hard-line” “right-wing” people believe that immigrants should obey the laws of the United States. This piling-on of tendentious phrases does not inform the reader, but rather serves the propaganda function of demonizing Stephen Miller. Let the question be asked: When did the New York Times ever refer to any member of the Obama administration as “left-wing,” “far left” or “fringe”? The New York Times does not even acknowledge the existence of any “fringe” ideas or “extreme” people in the Democrat Party. Everything the Democrat Party does is “mainstream,” according to the New York Times, and everything Republicans do is wrong. The New York Times is partisan propaganda.

Is Breitbart News a “flame-throwing right-wing website”? OK, then ask yourself, when has the New York Times acknowledged in a news article the existence of any “flame-throwing left-wing website”? This they have never done, of course. Whatever the Left wants, the editors of the New York Times will endorse, and its reporters will publicize and promote.

They’ve gone full SJW. Never go full SJW.
