Welcome To Bad Faith
Surely last week this foundering nation finally reached Peak Social Justice Warrior Bullshit with The New York Times hiring of genocide-for-white-people advocate Sarah Leong, 30, as an op-ed writer on tech matters. Apparently, one angle of the tech world Sarah Leong overlooked was the mile-wide Twitter trail of messages she left over the past ten years declaring that white people should be “canceled out,” “made to live underground like groveling goblins,” or this pungent one from the Reinhard Heydrich playbook: “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.”

When this big glob of shit hit the Internet fan, The Times’s HR department cranked out the pathetically lame explanation that Ms. Leong was merely “mirroring” or “counter-trolling” malicious tweets she had received over the years, “imitating the rhetoric of her harassers.”

That left the old newspaper and its readers gratified for a day or too… until a whole new bale of Sarah Leong tweets was discovered dissing The New York Times and virtually all of its other op-ed writers in the most opprobrious terms.

She wrote:

“After a bad day, some people come home and kick the furniture. I get on the Internet and make fun of The New York Times.”

“I don’t feel safe in a country that is led by someone who takes Thomas Friedman seriously.”

“Hannah Rosin shatters ceiling by proving women writers can be as hackish as Tom Friedman, too.”

“[David] Brooks is an absolute nitwit tho.”

“Notajoke: I’m being forced to read Nicholas Kristof. This is the worst.”

“if I had a bajillion dollars, I’d buy the New York Times, just for the pleasure of firing Tom Friedman….”
