It wasn’t enough that Democrats illegally spied on the Trump campaign and later on his administration, then accused him of collusion with Russia, then put the nation through two years of a ginned-up investigation based on the lie of collusion, then called Trump a racist and a white nationalist (whatever that term means) for every word he spoke. Now we learn that the New York Times has already planned the kinds of articles they will run the next two years in their paper and on-line, in an attempt to campaign against Trump for the 2020 election, according to a leaked transcript from an internal crisis meeting held by Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet.
We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred, but it is also a story that requires imaginative use of all our muscles to write about race and class in a deeper way than we have in years.
Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump, not only for our newsroom but, frankly, for our readers, was: Did Donald Trump have untoward relationships with the Russians, and was there obstruction of justice?
High on the NYT list of future articles on the Trump administration is propaganda similar to what we’ve seen these last two weeks: promises of certain economic disaster and a recession, soon, and all blamed on our president. If the left can convince Americans that the economy is about to fail they will use this circumstance to attempt to defeat President Trump in 2020, so they are hopeful for a national economic collapse leading ideally to a depression, which events Democrats always tell us will hurt minorities and women worst, but they don‘t care who’s hurt as long as President Trump is damaged by it as well.
One staffer in the Times’ crisis meeting pushed for the newsroom to be more adversarial in its coverage of the Trump administration because “It’s a very scary time.”
I’m wondering what is the overall strategy here for getting us through this administration and the way we cover it. Because I think one of the reasons people have such a problem with a headline like this—or some things that the New York Times reports on—is because they care so much. And they depend on the New York Times. They are depending on us to keep kicking down the doors and getting through, because they need that right now. It’s a very scary time.
Democrats, and their wholly-owned subsidiary, the NYT, are anxious to call all Republicans and all conservatives, and especially Donald Trump, racists and haters of foreigners (in other words, conservatives are still considered to be deplorables). Do they not recall how unsuccessful Hillary was by calling patriotic Americans nasty names? For being such practiced and accomplished politicians, Democrats certainly have short memories about what works and what doesn’t work when throwing insults and charges at their political opponents.
One might ask the question of the NYT: instead of planning the politically motivated news to be reported later in the form of politically slanted stories, what happened to reporting the actual news impartially, so Americans can understand current events and make up their minds about who will be the next president? But one would also have to realize that the NYT doesn’t give a damn about what the voting citizens want, they are too used to telling the less sophisticated among us what to like and what to dislike, to bother with reporting the news. They are actively in the business of politicizing everything in order to experience a win for their leftist cause. Honest reporting of the news and current events would not cause Americans to hate President Trump, so the leftist press will have to demonize him. Revising history, name-calling of American citizens and defaming our constitution is what the NYT is doing, not reporting the news to their readers. One fears this hate-Trump ideology borders on insanity, and that makes them unbalanced and dangerous.
But as Baquet said in the crisis meeting, when covering President Trump they are more interested in creativity and empathy than objectivity:
This is a really hard story. This is a story that’s going to call on like all of our muscles, all of our resources, all of our creativity, all of our empathy.
With over twenty Democrat presidential hopefuls currently campaigning, all demanding Socialist/Communist policies and a free-for-all handout of government services and finances, we now have a news agency, able to print what it wants under protection of our constitution, firming up plans to lie to American citizens about their nation and their president. These leftist, anti-American fools have no idea of the harm and self-destruction they are doing to themselves and their industry. Their hate is consuming them.
If anyone is searching for evidence of, or is in doubt that Donald Trump is, the patriot who will save America from the freedom-hating left who are forever aligned to destroy America, this project of the New York Times to lie about America’s history and to undermine our liberties and our prosperity, is all you need to be able to identify the forces that will, if they are allowed to succeed, impoverish and imprison Americans, just because the NYT doesn’t like them.
As Joe Biden recently said of liberals, “We choose truth over facts.”
Donald Trump must win again in 2020, or else…
