Outrageously biased statement by Sulzberger

A. G. Sulzberger, publisher of the NY Times, says that he told Trump: “I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.”

Once again, here’s a case of the left imagining Trump supporters doing what the people on their own side are actually doing. Nearly all of the political violence in this country is being committed by the left against Trump supporters and people they label the “alt-right” or “white supremacists” or whatever label they think give them the right to commit violence. And the media spends lots of time talking about imagined violence from Trump supporters while ignoring the actual violence taking place.

No one takes Trump seriously, his supporters understand he’s not to be taken literally, but on the other side of the aisle liberals like Maxine Waters are riling up the Trump haters who do take violence seriously. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Language like that is going to lead to more violence than anything that Trump tweeted.

Furthermore, on a worldwide basis, the most common perpetrators of violence against journalists are Islamic terrorists and organized crime, exactly the people Trump wants to keep out of the country but the media goes crazy that Trump is trying to keep them out of the country.

Journalists have very safe jobs as long as they don’t leave the United States. The people dying at work are the blue-collar workers. Especially dangerous occupations are logging, fishing, roofing, and garbage collection.

  1. Yes ans Handmaids tale fiction make all right wing stance horrifying … like the comparison of Sanders with aunt Lydia.

    Besides, in this serie, bad behaviour is chastised by expulsion to colonies. In real world, average people have to welcome diversity from the colonies. It’s a pure anti-reality piece of work. And that’s quite systematic. You see a hating bible sect operate the clitoris of a lesbian when in fact Africans do that to all their women.

    • I have not read Handmaid’s Tale written by “elite” Canadian author Margaret Atwoood.

      The plot features a grim future for women under a fanatical religious regime, I understand.

      No, it’s not Islam, under which women do indeed live grim lives. That wouldn’t fit with her leftist politics.

      So it’s Christian fundamentals. Yeah right. How believable. Not wasting time with that.

      • The irony is that “christian fundamentalism” is not run by misogynistic men but women. And always has been. The preachers may be men. But the dominant force in the congregations is middle aged and older women. And this goes double for black churches.

      • Christian fundamentalism, properly-speaking, is desire for (P)erfection. And in the perverted world of the radical autonomist, desire for (P)erfection is “evil.”

        This metaphysical reality CAN NEVER CHANGE regardless of the status of any single Christian or the entire lot of them.

        In other words, where there is desire for objective (S)upremacy, there is Christian fundamentalism.

      • I thought that for the dystopia to be exactly contrary to the reality, it should have been white racist. And by reading articles about the book and série, I found it indeed was !

        Enslaving fertile white girl to make babies and sending rebels to colonies in order to serve white supremacy. Versus Importing people from colonies to dismantle white sociétés in order to serve whom ?

        It’s interesting that the white racism of the book couldn’t be showed on tv because it would have been racist not to have any non white in the cast obviously.

      • @Thordaddy @destructure. Since I have not actually read the book, I should stop speculating. I’m not willing to buy a copy and read it, but from the Amazon summary it doesn’t seem to involve religion at all.

        I don’t know where I got that idea, Still, my comments about women and Islam stand.

  3. Well, as I was going to comment on the post about the Krumholz article, this kind of thing really makes one think the political dissolution of the USA in inevitable. Because if you read left-wing online sites, you learn that liberals and Democrats think that they are the ones who need to take the gloves off, that they are the ones being too civil, treating the other side with respect they don’t deserve, wrongly pretending the other side is legitimate when it’s not, etc.

      • Pretty much, I’d say. There’s entire swathes of people who only follow the MSM and believe their crap.

        Someone posted on Farcebook how things under Trump resembled the Weimar Republic before Hitler.

        What a stupid thing to write:

        – German democracy had only existed for a few years: in the US, well over 200 years.
        – There were genuine Communists, that supported Stalin, they took over an entire city (but they were too incompetent to keep it)
        – Germany had just lost a war and millions of men dead
        – Germany had severe hyperinflation, that reduced the middle class to poverty.
        – Then came the Great Depression

        I see quite a few differences here. I can’t believe anyone can compare the two cases.

    • I have predicted a civil war for a long time, and for the same reason you have just said: the Left is insane. But I no longer believe it will come to pass.

      After Trump crushes Kamala in 2016, Trump will be entering his 2nd term with a mandate, with a Trumpist congress and having successfully defanged the Deep State. He will pass the Immigrant Annihilation Act which will legalize 2 million Dreamers but all but halt non white immigration and pave the way for the liquidation of America’s illegals by the end of Trump’s 2nd term (net deportation of 2 million illegals a year plus an equal rate of net self deportation equals 16 million immigrants destroyed from 2021 through 2025).

      Reading the writing on the wall, the already ongoing attrition of Latinos and Asians into the white majority will pick up pace even further. As the Bernieite’s continue their conquest of the Democrats, more and more “moderate” Dems will flee the party as the Democrats start explicitly advocating higher taxes, open borders, white genocide and, eventually, overt antisemitism.

      In the long run, the Dems will become a permanent minority party nationally just like they currently already are in the South.

      Now on ResetEra they are vowing to launch an insurrection if Trump wins a 2nd term, but as much as I’d love that, it won’t happen. There will be sporadic violence that will only hurt them further but it won’t lead to a civil war.

      The only possibility I could see of there being a civil war is if left wing states tried to defy federal law. I don’t see them doing that. They don’t have it in them.

      • A “civil war,” by traditional implication, is self-annihilation. Whites killing whites. Fathers killing sons. Brothers killing brothers. Mothers killing children.

        MRKA is altready in a state of perpetuating self-annihilation.

        There is altready “civil war,” but of a type so subtle as to unflinchingly perpetuate without barely a notice.

        Anti-racism is so strong amongst the super dulled white mass that every sort of -cide is on the proverbial “playing table.”

        Adjust psychologically as best you can.

      • They need to end birth right citizenship and declare that birthright citizenship never applied to those in the country illegally. That would massively help demographics.

  4. Why shouldn’t Trump criticize NYT? They’ve mounted a ferocious campaign against him. They are taking no prisoners.

    Fine, let them do it. It’s a free country.

    But they can’t simultaneously expect Trump to roll over and do their bidding.

  5. Just like police is mobilizing when a policemen is shot dead, journalists are mobilizing when a journalist is shot dead. Both are very very safe professions.

    My 2¢

    July 31, 2018 at EDT pm

    • Journalist is a very very safe profession.

      Being a policeman is as dangerous as being a construction worker or telephone line repairer and installer (but less dangerous than truck driver).

    {{{Slulzbooger}}} is a malicious liar.

    And Michael Hastings might vehemently disagree with the first sentence in your last paragraph?

    • Most cities’ sanitation departments are run by and fully staffed by blacks. I hadn’t seen a White sanitation worker in decades until last week – a young clean-cut White guy jumping off the back of the truck. I think he might have just been working a summer job.

  9. If the left wants a civil war some us are ready to give it to them. I’d be more than happy to help set up internment camps for leftist where they will do hard labor or better yet, I would set up social experiment where they would be forced to live under some of that ‘duh-versity’ they would like the rest of us to endure and let us see how that goes. We could truly find out whether ghetto negro thug culture is just as good as working class WASP culture.

  10. Exactly right Lion. In a similar vein, I just heard this morning on radio that the 9th Circuit has denied qualified immunity to the City of San Jose, facing a civil rights action by Trump supporters who were beaten down after the cops funneled them right into the antifa thugs.

  13. Just watched episode 3 season 2 of Handmaids tale and the fugitive handmaid is saved by a Muslim. She discovered a Muslim face is the reason for him to save her because he hides a Coran and a carpet under his bed. The moment is like an eulogy for’Islam …
