Case in point: a snotty little anti-American sob-fest of a pseudo-historical op-ed piece on "why Guatemala is a mess," entitled "Ghosts of Guatemala's Past." The US, you see, is responsible for all the woes of all low-achievement developing nations. In the case of Guatemala, our original sin of evil whiteness - according to the reality fugitives at Amerika's newspaper of record - dates back to the early 1950s, when the US was in fact at the apogée of its power both materially and morally.
After all we had just almost single-handedly rescued Western Civilization from its own self-destruction (no other people in the history of the world has (A) killed as many of their own kind in internecine wars and (B) reached out to celebrate and uplift peoples of other civilizations, as Europeans have (see: "The Romans Were The First Multiculturalists," by Maxwell de Lustre)).
Everywhere we look in the US and in the world, we see the celebration of mediocrity going hand in hand with the relentless assault on all things that bare the trademark of Western Civilization, and in a nutshell that would mean every single modern convenience from the paved road to the printed word, from electricity to internet to manned flight to the Shakespearean stanza.
Readers of this blog will know what that means: we try to keep it mediocre here, we never write while sober, we are light years away from the level of excellent writing found in such recently launched blogs as Jew Among You for example, and we don't mind.
This blog might suck. But the good news is that our hatred of the New York Times knows no bounds, and we continue to read it so you don't have to.
We will continue to dissect the sinister agenda of the NYT's pointy-headed elitist contributors - those wishful-thinking competitive compassion athletes whose contempt for Western Civilization drives policy-making in the Civilized World. This Dear COTT readers is our commitment, no matter what. It is a commitment that is absolute and irreducible. Such is our own contempt for the New York Times.
