Andrew Sullivan has written an incendiary article about Sarah Jeong, The New York Times and what this episode reveals about the leftwing view of anti-White racism:
“Is the newest member of the New York Times editorial board, Sarah Jeong, a racist?
From one perspective — that commonly held by people outside the confines of the political left — she obviously is. A series of tweets from 2013 to 2015 reveal a vicious hatred of an entire group of people based only on their skin color. If that sounds harsh, let’s review a few, shall we? “White men are bullshit,” is one. A succinct vent, at least. But notice she’s not in any way attacking specific white men for some particular failing, just all white men for, well, existing. Or this series of ruminations: “have you ever tried to figure out all the things that white people are allowed to do that aren’t cultural appropriation. there’s literally nothing. like skiing, maybe, and also golf. white people aren’t even allowed to have polo. did you know that. like don’t you just feel bad? why can’t we give white people a break. lacrosse isn’t for white people either. it must be so boring to be white.” Or this: “basically i’m just imagining waking up white every morning with a terrible existential dread that i have no culture.” I can’t say I’m offended by this — it’s even mildly amusing, if a little bonkers. (Has she read, say, any Shakespeare or Emily Dickinson?) But it does reveal a worldview in which white people — all of them — are cultural parasites and contemptibly dull. …
The editors of the Verge, where Jeong still works, described any assertion of racism in Jeong’s tweets as “dishonest and outrageous,” a function of bad faith and an attack on journalism itself. Scroll through left-Twitter and you find utter incredulity that demonizing white people could in any way be offensive. That’s the extent to which loathing of and contempt for “white people” is now background noise on the left. What many don’t seem to understand is that their view of racism isn’t shared by the public at large, and that the defense of it by institutions like the New York Times will only serve to deepen the kind of resentment that gave us Trump. Last night, for instance, Fox News made the most of the Times’ excuses for race-baiting.”
How many Buzzfeed employees hate white people? This is third one we’ve found in 24 hours lol. https://t.co/MaGC4FXKDm

Sarah Jeong calls college students who were falsely accused in the #uvarapehoax which never happened "white college boy monsters". @NYTimesPR then hired her to be on their editorial staff. https://t.co/nRFTjcgivc

Hatred of white people is not the same thing as racism. It’s a valid complaint, given history, reality, and the obvious.

The article hit the target. White Nationalists have long argued that “anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.” Bob Whitaker’s Mantra was the original Alt-Right meme.
By hiring Sarah Jeong, The New York Times is conceding that the charge is true: anti-racism is now by definition anti-White because only White people can be racists. The charge of “racism” has nothing to do with morality. It is okay to be vicious, violent, hateful and bigoted, engage in racial discrimination and use the charge of “racism” as a political tool to bludgeon your enemies so long as the target is a White person. The term is now purely an indictment of White people.
This is why President Trump gets so much applause when he calls them “the enemy of the people.” They aren’t “journalists.” They are anti-White political activists who persecute ordinary White people and organize social media lynch mobs to destroy them while exempting themselves from the same taboos. They are engaged in nothing but fake moral posturing.
These people hate you because you are White. They hate you on racial grounds. And yet, they believe they are morally superior to you … because you are the racist!

Whoever told Andrew Sullivan being a hee-hawing contrarian would make him interesting must be brought to account.

one of the things about andrew sullivan is that on top of being an undisguised white supremacist he's also just an incurious dull-minded mediocrity and an extremely shitty and slovenly writer

And, the New York Times Times’ defense of Sarah Jeong tells Asian-Americans our anger is merited. https://t.co/vAH4gI4FwM

The New Republic
Here's a suggestion for Adam Moss: your magazine employs a few Asian-Americans. Ask them what they think of Andrew Sullivan's latest column. It'll be an interesting experience.

There’s a solid 20 years between when Andrew Sullivan left The New Republic and when I was hired. Still, I feel embarrassed that he ever worked here.

Andrew Sullivan thinks that satirizing the bell curve is racist, and advocating against immigration by non-whites out of fear of “demographic change” is not. pic.twitter.com/40eTTAH0dQ

I loathe Andrew Sullivan (never forget that he claimed, continuously, Sarah Palin faked a pregnancy, well after the math made that totally impossible), but he's getting so much irrational hatred over his column today that I may be forced to take him somewhat seriously again.
— John Ziegler (@Zigmanfreud) August 3, 2018
I love this boilerplate right-wing nonsense from Andrew Sullivan. "Racism against whites, in the neo-Marxist view, just 'isn’t a thing". Can some of these "neo-Marxists" or "Marxists" of another stripe please chime in? Where do you neo-Marxists hangout? Is there a union? Club?

That Andrew Sullivan piece is stupid because reverse racism doesn’t exist, but it’s also stupid because he managed to slip in the “socialism only works in all white countries” anti-diversity argument. pic.twitter.com/9c3oEY50yo
