Jim Kunstler: The 'NYTimes-Jeong Affair' Represents "Peak SJW Bullshit"

• zerohedge.com by James Howard

Surely last week this foundering nation finally reached Peak Social Justice Warrior Bullshit with The New York Times hiring of genocide-for-white-people advocate Sarah Leong, 30, as an op-ed writer on tech matters. Apparently, one angle of the tech world Sarah Leong overlooked was the mile-wide Twitter trail of messages she left over the past ten years declaring that white people should be "canceled out," "made to live underground like groveling goblins," or this pungent one from the Reinhard Heydrich playbook: "Oh man it's kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men."

When this big glob of shit hit the Internet fan, The Times's HR department cranked out the pathetically lame explanation that Ms. Leong was merely "mirroring" or "counter-trolling" malicious tweets she had received over the years, "imitating the rhetoric of her harassers."

That left the old newspaper and its readers gratified for a day or too... until a whole new bale of Sarah Leong tweets was discovered dissing The New York Times and virtually all of its other op-ed writers in the most opprobrious terms.
