The left accuses President Trump of projecting onto others what he himself is doing. It was always a nonsense charge as everyone in the entire world knows exactly where Trump stands on every issue.
The guy has been remarkably consistent since the 1970s. He has also been remarkable transparent, more so than any president who came before him.
The truth is the left are the ones projecting – they even called Nancy Pelosi a racist – and now we have even more proof.
A senior editor at the New York Times just apologized for some very offensive tweets and deleted them. They are nasty indeed.
But the internet is forever and prove that this guy is a self-professed anti-Semite. In a senior editorial role for the New York Times. You can’t make this stuff up.
GOP Congressmen Lee Zeldin is demanding the New York Times do the right thing and fire him.
From The Hill:
The tweets, which were deleted late Wednesday, include one from Jan. 1, 2010, in which Wright-Piersanti referred to a “Crappy Jew Year.”
“I was going to say ‘Crappy Jew Year,’ but one of my resolutions is to be less anti-Semitic. So… HAPPY Jew Year. You Jews,” he wrote in one tweet.
Another, from December 2009, referred to the “Jew-police.”
“We are aware of these tweets, which are a clear violation of our standards. We are reviewing next steps,” The New York Times said in a statement.
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who is Jewish, has called on Wright-Piersanti to be fired.
“An editor from the New York Times is scrubbing his [Twitter] account, this guy Tom Wright-Piersanti, because he was self-describing himself as an anti-Semite and he was going after Jews and others,” Zeldin said on Fox News Thursday morning before saying he “should be fired.”
I have deleted tweets from a decade ago that are offensive. I am deeply sorry.
