The Washington Post published an absurd column Friday defending the racist Tweets of a newly-minted member of the New York Times editorial board.
“The old tweets bubbled up from the depths of the Internet, surfaced by an apparently anonymous user on Twitter,” the Post said. “In them, Sarah Jeong, a technology writer recently hired by the New York Times for a prestigious post on its editorial board, spoke sarcastically about white people.”
The piece was titled “An Asian American woman’s tweets ignite a debate: Is it okay to make fun of white people online?”
According to the Post, Jeong’s Tweets, including “Dumb*** f****** white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” are not racist, but rather sarcastic. WaPo conveniently left the curse words from Tweet out of the piece.
Jeong also Tweeted such content as “#CancelWhitePeople” and “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.” The paper blamed “alt-right outlets” for ginning up controversy.
“At right-leaning outlets such as Fox News, the Daily Caller, the Gateway Pundit, Breitbart and Infowars, Jeong’s tweets were skewered as “racist,” “offensive” and “anti-white,” the Post said.
If Jeong’s posts ridiculed any other race than whites, they would immediately be deemed racist and she would be shunned from society.
But not to worry, the Post has an explanation for why anti-white racism does not exist. The paper wrote:
“Part of the reason it was so easy for the outrage to be manufactured in the first place was it was completely decontextualized and ahistorified,” said Nolan L. Cabrera, an associate professor at the University of Arizona who will publish a book in the fall about racial attitudes held by white college students. “Then it was easy to drum up anger and say it looks like she hates white people. That only makes sense if you are willfully ignorant of 400 to 500 years’ history and contemporary social context and also the context from which the tweets were sent.”
Essentially, the argument made by professor Cabrera is that racism in the past justifies racism today. The argument, made by a surely-leftist academic who would claim to abhor racism, is the type of pure nonsense that is unique to the American college campus. One must be a professor charged with molding the minds of America’s youth in order to be so pathetically stupid.
Author Michael Malice summed up the Washington Post piece nicely.
“An Asian American woman’s tweets ignite a debate: Is the corporate press the enemy of the American people or of humanity in general?” he wrote on Twitter.

President Trump Takes Down Chinese State Media Reporter: “Who Do You Work For, China?”
The reporter works for a company all-but controlled by the Chinese government.
President Donald Trump correctly questioned if a reporter promoting the supposed efforts of Chinese companies to provide needed coronavirus supplies was working for a Chinese-government controlled media company at Monday’s press conference.
Youyou Wang asked a question that was phrased as more of a statement, describing the humanitarian efforts of Chinese companies Huawei and Alibaba as a potential motive for the United States to rescind trade restrictions on China in the wake of the epidemic.

“Who are you working for, China? Do you work for China, or do you work for a newspaper? Who are you with?”
Youyou Wang stated that she works for a privately owned media company, but scrutiny of Hong Kong Phoenix TV reveals that it’s closely linked to the Chinese government. According to The National Pulse’s Raheem Kassam, 37.1% of the company’s parent, Phoenix Satellite Holdings, is owned by a former Colonel for China’s state propaganda TV channel. Another 20% of the company is owned by Extra Step Investments Limited, which is a subsidiary of a Chinese government-owned company called China Mobile.

Mainstream media operatives immediately pivoted to paint Trump’s wholly reasonable inquiry to the nature of Wang’s media company as somehow prejudiced, claiming that it was inappropriate that Trump question the motives of someone who was trying to defend China’s major corporations and government in the midst of the pandemic.
His suspicions appear to have been validated, considering no more than 65% of the company is owned by individuals and entities with demonstrable connections to the Chinese government. Many of China’s nominally ‘private’ companies are essentially owned by the nation’s authoritarian government and work tirelessly to advance its interests.
