The New York Times has been in furious damage control mode after a newly hired member of their editorial board came under fire for a history of racist tweets that calls into question both their pre-employment screening process as well as the paper’s objectivity.
Soon after it was announced that tech writer Sarah Jeong had been brought on board to join the rest of the ideologues who use their forum to spew leftist propaganda like poison-spitting toads, it became clear that the Asian-American has a very serious problem with white people.
It wasn’t only one tweet either but rather a pattern that has become all too commonplace on the political left where anti-white sentiment is exploding. There are far too many of Ms. Jeong’s offensive tweets to list here but suffice it to say, had the same things been written about people of color then she would have immediately been escorted from the building with her stuff in a cardboard box.
But hypocrisy is the coin of the realm for liberals and not only did the Times issue a statement defending Jeong but the cable television hate brigade is churning out excuses for her.

And surprise, surprise, surprise… her defenders have found a home on CNN where the “dumbest man on television” Don Lemon hosted former Bernie Sanders press secretary Symone Sanders whose incredible reasoning of why Jeong can’t be a racist is so Orwellian that old George is spinning in his grave.
CHECK IT OUT:
Sanders’ spinning and dissembling was so outrageous that it even Lemon was taken aback to the point where he accused her of making excuses for Jeong’s clearly racist tweets.
CNN commentator Symone Sanders defended Jeong by insisting that that her tweets weren’t racist and that they were just “taken out of context” by “right-wingers” who dug them up. While she argued Jeoug wasn’t being racist because being racist is “prejudice plus power,” Sanders conceded that she may have a “prejudice perhaps against white men.”
“Does it make her a bigot?” Lemon asked.
“No, I don’t think this makes her a bigot either,” Sanders responded.
After the commercial break, the conversation continued and Lemon read part of the statement issued by the NYT.
“I want to be clear,” Sanders said, “I’m not defending the fact that- I’m not defending it, but-”
“Just because someone said something terrible about you on social media does mean you have to respond!” Lemon exclaimed.
“I agree with you,” Sanders responded. “All I’m saying is, for instance, the assertion that because Sarah referred to white people in her tweets, she is now somehow against all white people when we all know that-”
“But Symone, I don’t think that’s the point,” Lemon shot back. “That’s not the point that she’s against all people. It sounds like you’re making an excuse for someone who actually did something that is bigoted.”
From the interview, it’s pretty apparent that Jeong isn’t the only bigot and expect to see even more anti-white sentiment from these clowns now that the New York Times has shown that there are no consequences for hate speech. On the contrary, they are openly rewarding it.
