Sarah Jeong redux

I won’t reprise the posts I’ve written about Sarah Jeong, who was hired by the New York Times as its tech editor despite a long history of racism, misandry, and other bizarre behavior on social media (go here for a list). Despite a different hire being fired immediately by the Times for similar transgressions, Jeong […]

NY Times columnist defends the hiring of racist Sarah Jeong

I suspected that the New YorkTimes would publish at least one of its regular columnists defending the hiring of tech editor Sarah Jeong, who over several years put out a hoard of racist, sexist, and anti-police tweets that, because she was Asian and her victims were SJW Approved Malefactors™ (mostly white), were excused by the […]

The last word on the racism, misandry, and police-hating from Sarah Jeong

Well, the New York Times is standing by its hiring of Sarah Jeong as its head tech writer. Jeong’s repugnant character was revealed in a bunch of anti-white tweets—tweets ardently defended by Leftists (see also here) who pretended that they weren’t racist because, of course, privileged Asian women, even if they went to Harvard, can’t be […]

The Sarah Jeong affair: more defense of her racism

UPDATE: Jeong’s history of racist tweets goes way back and can be seen by following the thread on the tweet below. Her excuse that she was simply reponding to harassers can no longer stand. I decided to wait until now to talk about Sarah Jeong because I didn't want to be part of the "outrage […]

Sarah Jeong, named NYT’s lead technology writer, has a history of racist tweets

On February 13, the New York Times hired Quinn Norton to write about technology for the paper, and later that day fired her. The cause was Norton’s history of questionable tweets, as well as a friendship with a white supremacist—things that social media apparently called to the paper’s attention. According to Wired, the issues are […]

Who, exactly, are persons of color? (And a note on “victimhood culture”)

A modest proposal: it’s time to ditch the phrase “persons of color” when used to refer to either oppressed people who are white or as a general cover-all term for minorities who consider themselves oppressed. That’s because many “persons of color” are really white, or at least white vis-à-vis skin pigmentation, while many people who […]

PC culture on the wane?

Well, I don’t know if it’s really on the wane, but it seems to be a lot less pervasive than most people think. According to a new article in The Atlantic by Yascha Mounk (screenshot below), based on a new study by an organization called More In Common (click on green screenshot below, and see […]

Nick Cohen on the alliance between the British Left and extreme Islam

There are two “alliances” that I think about constantly. The first is one that I’m involved with, which isn’t a real alliance but a convergence of interest. That is the concentration of both the Right and people like me in calling attention to the excesses of the authoritarian Left. For instance, a lot of the […]

Wednesday: Hili dialogue

We’re nearing the end of August: it’s Wednesday, August 29, 2018, and National Chop Suey Day—not even a Chinese dish and a prime example of cultural appropriation. It’s also International Day Against Nuclear Tests. News of the day via a cartoon from reader pyers that appeared in the Torygraph. As pyers said about Trump, “Even […]

NYT puts in request for information about Brett Kavanaugh’s wife

Here we may have another example of the New York Times‘s double standards comparable to their having hired Sarah Jeong while firing Quinn Norton for the same acts committed by Jeong (nasty and bigoted statements on Twitter). In this short article (click on screenshot to read it), two of the paper’s investigative reporters explain why […]
