Sarah Jeong Is An Inflection Point For America

I'm still processing the fact that the New York Times, the freaking New York Times, hired a crazed racist, not as an occasionally-published pundit, but as a member of their editorial board.

There's no going back from this one. The NYT has now normalized racism for its readers. Not that it wasn't bubbling up already, given the lunacy from our academies with their whiteness studies and toxic masculinity courses. Following along with the NYT, the WaPo published this her-racism-wasn't-so-bad-after-all piece. Here's a snippet.
Without evidence that they had any bearing on Jeong’s extensive body of work, which includes a book she wrote about online harassment, these statements could have perhaps been unceremoniously dismissed as insignificant.
Well, I guess it wasn't racism-racism. Of course, that logic only works if you accept the left's definition of racism that it can only come from whites. But fie upon logic! This isn't about logic and it never was. This is about the overuse of their favorite tool to gain power - the charge of racism. Sarah isn't an outlier to them, she's actually pretty typical, if you look at what's going on at our colleges.

And therein lies my only ray of hope from this horrific incident. My bet is that the NYT, the WaPo and most of the Democrats' base are living so deeply inside of a bubble that they don't really understand America at all. This is the real America:

We saw this at a blue-collar diner in the South this week. A white girl cheerfully waiting on two black gentlemen. It happens in every combination, every day, all over the place. This is the America we know from reality, not the race-obsessed madness of the left.
I'm hoping that normal Americans of all stripes will be repulsed by Sarah and the NYT. Maybe it will rip the veil off the Nazism of the American progressives, revealing their sickness to all.

You can be in favor of Medicare for all and a higher minimum wage without being a racist, you know.
