NYT Reporter Quits, Says She Was Forced Out By Woke Mob For Her ‘Wrongthink’
“They have called me a Nazi and a racist.”
New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss has quit and issued a scathing explanation, saying the newspaper is no longer a place where ‘intellectual curiosity’ is tolerated, and that she was essentially forced out by a woke mob of insiders who disagreed with her ‘wrongthink’.
Weiss, who identifies politically as more of a classic liberal, or a ‘left-leaning centrist’ as she has described it, has charged the Times of “unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge”.
“My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views,” Weiss wrote in her resignation letter.
“They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m ‘writing about the Jews again.’ Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers.” she added.
Weiss regularly writes positive opinion pieces concerning the Israeli government, and focuses on anti-semitism issues, and has thus been labelled a zionist by those who disagree with her outlook.
“My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly ‘inclusive’ one, while others post ax emojis next to my name.” Weiss explains in her letter.
“Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.” she adds.
Weiss angered the woke mob that has taken over the NYT earlier this year when she publicly revealed the behind the scenes chaos that unfolded when the newspaper published an Op-Ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK), in which he advocated deploying the military to put down unrest in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
Weiss defended the decision to publish Cotton’s piece, and revealed that a “new guard” at the Times is pushing a world view of “safetyism,” which threatens free speech.
The New Guard has a different worldview, one articulated best by @JonHaidt and @glukianoff. They call it "safetyism," in which the right of people to feel emotionally and psychologically safe trumps what were previously considered core liberal values, like free speech.

Weiss blasted the Times for allowing “this kind of behavior to go on inside your company in full view of the paper’s entire staff and the public.”
“Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery,” Weiss continues, adding “But the truth is that intellectual curiosity—let alone risk-taking—is now a liability at The Times.”
“Why edit something challenging to our readers, or write something bold only to go through the numbing process of making it ideologically kosher, when we can assure ourselves of job security (and clicks) by publishing our 4000th op-ed arguing that Donald Trump is a unique danger to the country and the world? And so self-censorship has become the norm.” Weiss scathingly comments.
“What rules that remain at The Times are applied with extreme selectivity. If a person’s ideology is in keeping with the new orthodoxy, they and their work remain unscrutinized. Everyone else lives in fear of the digital thunderdome. Online venom is excused so long as it is directed at the proper targets.” She outlines in the letter.
Weiss describes the woke mob at the Times as like being almost non-human:
“The paper of record is, more and more, the record of those living in a distant galaxy, one whose concerns are profoundly removed from the lives of most people,” she asserts.
“This is a galaxy in which, to choose just a few recent examples, the Soviet space program is lauded for its ‘diversity’; the doxxing of teenagers in the name of justice is condoned; and the worst caste systems in human history includes the United States alongside Nazi Germany.” she adds.
“America is a great country that deserves a great newspaper,” Weiss concludes.
Video: Shrieky Purple Haired Democrat Makes A Complete Fool Of Herself At FBI Whistleblower Hearing
Tries to identify FBI whistleblower as J6 Insurgency supporter by attributing someone else’s Twitter account to him… fails spectacularly
A Democrat made a complete fool of herself at yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee government weaponisation hearing in the House by attempting to pin some random person’s retweet on an FBI whistleblower as evidence that he supported a January 6th insurgency.
Sporting sprigs of purple dyed hair and waving around air quotes, shrieky Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez of California attempted to go all Perry Mason by uncovering former FBI agent Marcus Allen as a dangerous MAGA extremist sympathiser.
The problem was that her entire case rested on a retweet claiming ‘Nancy Pelosi staged January 6. Retweet if you agree,’ by someone with the same name, that isn’t the same Marcus Allen.
Sanchez took about 4 minutes to set up her devastating take down of Allen as a legitimate witness, asking him several poorly worded questions about whether he believes FBI agents should be impartial and apolitical.
Sanchez intended to get Allen to agree that obviously this should be the case and then hit him with the revelation that he retweeted a MAGA crackpot QAnon statement, or something.
When it came to the big unveil, Sanchez asked “Is your account @MarcusA97050645?” to which the former agent replied “That is absolutely not my account.”
Should’ve checked if there is more than one Marcus Allen… in the world.
Sanchez ridiculously carried on anyway, demanding that Allen answer for the tweet, as someone in the background quipped that the owner of the random Marcus Allen account “could be the football player.”
Allen hilariously repeatedly told Sanchez that the Twitter account in question is not his.
Two can play at this game…
Earlier, Allen had testified to the subcommittee that he was punished for forwarding information to his superiors that “questioned the official narrative of the events of January 6.”
“Despite my history of unblemished service to the United States, the FBI suspended my security clearance, accusing me of actually being disloyal to my country,” Allen said.
He added, “This outrageous and insulting accusation is based on unsubstantiated accusations that I hold ‘conspiratorial views’ regarding the events of January 6, 2021 and that I allegedly sympathize with criminal conduct. I do not. I was not in Washington DC on January 6, played no part in the events of January 6, and I condemn all criminal activity that occurred.”

Toronto ‘Anti-Capitalist’ Pay-When-You-Can Cafe Shuts Down After Just One Year
A Toronto cafe for anti-capitalists, “The Anarchist,” is permanently shuttering after just 12 months in business after following a “pay-when-you-can” business model.
The Anarchist describes itself as an “anti-capitalist, anti-colonial cafe, shop and radical community space on stolen land.”
“Unfortunately, the lack of generational wealth/seed capital from ethically bankrupt sources left me unable to weather the quiet winter season, or to grow in the ways needed to be sustainable longer-term,” the owner, Gabriel Sims-Fewer wrote last week.
The Anarchist, which opened for business in March of 2022, went viral last year, with internet users mocking the leftist cafe for charging high prices for its “speciality” coffee as well as selling “radical” art, books, clothing, jewellery, tote bags, and stickers. –Breitbart
“Fuck the rich. Fuck the police. Fuck the state. Fuck the colonial death camp we call “Canada”,” Gabriel wrote.
“It’s been an amazing experience, connecting with so many great community members, sparking desperately needed debate, raising the blood pressure of Conservatives (that includes you, “anarcho-capitalists” and “Libertarians”), fulfilling the dream of most service workers by not having to tolerate the presence of professional class-traitors (pigs and military), and experimenting with living and working in ways that don’t enthusiastically embrace the pure misanthropy of Capitalism,” he continued.
