In the wake of the 2016 election results, the NYT realized it was a little too woke for its own good. Only four years ago, there was still some shred of journalism at NYT, or at least some desire for
honesty credibility, or at least some realization that being so utterly out of touch with half the electorate might be a wee problem for the Grey Lady.
So in April 2017 they hired Bari Weiss away from the WSJ as an op/ed editor, to open up the echo chamber. Mind you, Miss Weiss is no William F. Buckley. Her views are somewhat varied, but let’s just call her Center-Left (or rather, what was Center-Left in 2017). She has a bit of a nose for drama, not in a good way, but she tends strongly towards intellectual honesty, the rarest of qualities among the left. Her job was to make sure there was at least some sort of balance, sometimes, on the op-ed page. It worked for awhile.
But the Leftists mashed the accelerator for three years straight, which isn’t even accurate, because it has been more of a constant state of increasing acceleration. So by June 2020, there was no room left at the NYT for a young, Columbia U., Center-Left, lesbian Jew.
Imagine how much more they hate YOU, and what they want to do to you.
Lifesite has a good take on it below, and they link to her site and resignation letter. Well worth your time.
How the bullying of NYT editor Bari Weiss points to a coming tyranny
July 20, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Liberalism thrives on the façade of a single lie to which all must subscribe—that there is no absolute truth. Of course, everyone knows or at least suspects that absolute truth does exist. In a liberal order, however, people pretend it does not exist so that everyone can get along. Behind the fiction of this façade, people can believe whatever they want as long as they hurt no one and abide by the rules of polite, civil discourse.
The problem with a system without absolute truth is that every error can also find shelter. Every absurdity must be welcomed, and the most glaring contradictions reign and clash. Behind this grand, lying façade that hides and tolerates everything, disorder festers. To the degree that common sense declines, the system eventually breaks down. People get hurt, and civil discourse unravels.
The bullying of the New York Times editor Bari Weiss marked a milestone in the breakdown of the liberal order that has so long ruled in America and the West. The writer recently startled the world by her blistering letter of resignation posted on her website.
The astute writer saw the handwriting on the now-crumbling façade wall. Error no longer seeks shelter behind the façade but takes command. A revolutionary mob has created a “cancel culture” that dispatches those who dare to disagree. Resigning was the best way for her to avoid the guillotine and hold on to her head…

How can one talk to those who do not believe in the very idea of truth? My son Matthew, a political commentator on ABC-TV This Week and Good Morning America programs, holds the position that truth is nearly impossible to attain. When I send him anything critical of the Progressive narrative he gets upset and tells me never ever to send him anything like that again. I also have a medical doctor daughter who is the same way. As a result a veil has drawn between us as real communication becomes impossible.
“And besides all this, between us and you, there is fixed a great chaos: so that they who would pass from hence to you, cannot, nor from thence come hither.”
The guiding force behind evolutionary “science” is random selection by the powerful over the weak. In this system, there is no “truth”, only power and weakness – there are those who survive and propagate … and those who die and disappear.
This is the philosophy of leftism – godless “natural selection”.
There is an unacknowledged “truth” inside this philosophy, which is: out of the abundance of the darkness of the most wicked and evil from those most willing to impose their will over others that drives their socio-political agendas.
Leftism is a religion, the religion of Satan. Those at the top of this leftist movement literally worship Satan. They are evil beyond the reckoning of most honest people’s’ understanding. Those further down may also worship the devil, but most are just ignorant atheist tools.
This religion in a word – SELF. Its god is the devil. Its fruits are all listed by St. Paul to the Galatians (5: 19-21):
“19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like …”
The Christian knows that we come from God, are sustained in physical life by God, and return to God our Maker one day who reigns and judges according to His fixed will which we know as the Law. We see this Law’s glimmer in this life. We will see it in full in the next. It is more real than physical laws like gravity, motion, entropy. There is nothing that is random. There is a fixed purpose and reason for everything. Our political laws derive from God’s eternal Law and are its servant.
The most important thing to remember: THERE IS NO COMPROMISE BETWEEN ONE RELIGION AND THE OTHER. One must prevail. The other must lose. And all God’s creation must choose he this day which one we will serve. And then fight for our King, whether Light or Dark.
Those at the apex of Leftism are true Satanists. The lesser wannabes are merely Luciferian… they are their own gods.
