Today's Op-Ed section is filled with some serious leftist NWO drivel: there's the not so much anti-gun as anti-white-male article "Obama's Gun Play" by Times communist Charles Blow; there's a pro-Utopia puff piece featuring a tribute to the recently deceased JFK brother-in-law, Sargent Shriver, penned by the always clueless and always hilarious Bob Herbert, "The Loss of a Good Man"; then two pieces written by chicks, one of whom happens to be a cab driver.
The New York Times likes to show us how enlightened and progressive they are by turning over the Op-Ed page from time to time to minorities and women. On rare occasions of moral fortitude, the Times in their infinite crusading social justice superiority will even allow multiple minority women to pen the opinions on the last page of section A.
It's bad enough that the Times would turn loose a cabal of crypto delusional high school students to author the columns of their opinion page - with the disastrous consequences for public policy that result when those opinions come from the nation's newspaper of record - but for Pinky Sulzberger and his crusading cohorts to select a foursome of predictably leftist reality fugitives is the very height of journalistic impropriety, in the eyes of the Crimes of the Times, anyway.
Charles Blow lectures us today about how wonderful Obama is, and how evil gun-owning Americans are.
From Blow's article:
"Obama... is enjoying a surge in the polls. ... And his handling of the shooting seemed to strike the right balance with the overwhelming majority of Americans. He's on a roll!"
As Blow cheers on the Fraudulent One, he has this to say about the Jared Loughners of the world:
"Gun owners are almost twice as likely to be white than nonwhite, are more than three times as likely to be male than female, and are more likely to live in the South and Midwest than in the East of West."So while Blow clearly believes that the enlightened like him live on the East and West coasts, he also has a problem with southern white males. Who'd a thunk?!
Meanwhile, over on the right (side of the page), the always amusing Bobby Herbert drools with love over the memory of the man who was the "driving force" behind LBJ's War On Poverty.
From Bob's article:
"Sargent Shriver had a different view of America - warmer, richer and more humane. ... Mr. Shriver had a deep commitment to the idea of America 'as a social enterprise...of caring and cooperative people.'"It seems that Bob Herbert only tolerates white people when they grovel before and commit their careers to uplifting his people.
Also, Bob seems to have a never-ending supply of excuses to explain away the failures of these crusading white liberals to lift blacks out of abject failure.
From Bob's column:
"In 1964, as leader of the Office of Economic Opportunity in the LBJ Administration, Mr. Shriver came across studies that showed connections between poor nutrition, lower I.Q. scores and arrested social and emotional development. He wondered whether early childhood intervention 'could have a beneficial effect on the children of poor people.' Head Start followed in incredibly short order."Hmmm. This is an interesting display of the incredible, bold-faced hypocrisy that the Times allows to be published in its august pages. While apparently keeping a straight face, Bob Herbert is telling us that black children still need Head Start, No Child Left Behind, Race To The Top, the Knowledge is Power Program, free school lunch programs, and the other billions of dollars the federal government continues to spend in a certifiably insane campaign to wipe out the achievement gap, because black children's I.Q. is lower, because of (WAIT FOR IT) poor nutrition.
Looks like poor Bob was too busy whining about the Tea Party to read the memo from Michelle that says that 75% of black children are already obese.
Somebody please let me out of here! I can't take it anymore!
