This is part of a trend that we have been seeing more and more of, namely: the New York Times intentionally quoting people with foreign-sounding names or publishing photos of exotic-looking people, then, after arousing the reader's suspicions that the article will somehow go on to comment upon this person's foreign status in the context of the article, carrying on with no mention of the person's otherness at all. It's almost like the New York Times is intentionally prompting xenophobic subconscious thoughts, then by showing how enlightened they are by making no mention of a person with a funny name's "otherness," scolding the unenlightened whitebread reader for even daring to think such a thing.
In today's article, the communists at the Times report from lily-white uber-liberal Brookline Massachusetts, a Boston suburb 80% of whose NPR-indoctrinate populace voted for mein Obama in 2008. The article cites a lot of aging liberals with names like Arthur May and Carolyn Waite, who predictably disparage the hateful right-wing Republicans for refusing to raise the debt ceiling, and call for more taxes on evil corporations and the filthy rich. (It's like these people were invented by the creators of South Park).
What is interesting about this article is that the Times quotes one person more than any of the half-dozen others quoted. That person, a certain Noam Shobani, is given nearly four-times as much air time as the other aging liberals in this article. Notably, Shobani is only 25 years old, too.
Now, the Times obviously chose to quote someone with a borderline foreign-sounding name like this on purpose. It's almost like they want you to second guess yourself, then self-flagellate for having such hate thoughts in the first place, as in: "Ah geez, how bigotted of me to think that person is a foreigner. After all the Times says that he works in a hospital and grew up in the area. Plus, it's not like his name is Jihad Al-Wazari or anything. Maybe he's just a Mayflower American with a funny-sounding name."
Of course the truth is a thousand times more sinister than that.
Ever since last week's Norway massacre, we have watched as the Times puts the propaganda machine into high gear, with mind-numbing examples of journalistic sneakiness everywhere. To prove how unbiased they are, the Times has been publishing an unusually high number of articles on Muslim suicide bombings and other atrocities, for example, right next to coverage of Norway, which even there the Times has been talking about assimilation problems with unusual candor.
Why? Because as the entire world begins to understand what is really going on in the West, the Times realizes that yesterday's propaganda techniques just won't cut it anymore. That's why they need to use the type of stealth propaganda we see in "Stonghold of Liberals, A Call To Levy More Taxes."
