(Tea Party 247) – The New York Times is at it again. They love to instigate Americans to take offense at their idiotic headlines and stories and then retract and “rewrite” and pretend like they didn’t meant to say that. Deleting and rewriting is too little, too late as they’ve already planted the seeds, like their recent praise of China’s Mao Zedong, Communist dictator who starved to death over 45 million of his own people and displaced and abused millions more. A real leftist hero!
The liberal publication tweeted a pseudo-somber post commemorating 9/11 blaming the “airplanes” for “taking aim” at the World Trade Center towers. You cannot make this stuff up. The tweet, from their official Twitter account, said, “18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died.”
It’s hard to even grasp this level of ignorance. They quickly deleted the tweet and later posted another that read, “We’ve deleted an earlier tweet to this story and have edited for clarity. The story has also been updated.”

The following tweet really wasn’t much better but at least they weren’t blaming airplanes for the mass murder of over 2000 people. It said, “18 years ago nearly 3,000 people were lost, families of those killed in the terror attacks will gather at the 9/11 memorial. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., then the names of the dead – one by one – will be recited.”
They just can’t possibly bring themselves to say “Islamist terrorists” murdered over 3000 people on 9/11. It’s too taboo to call out Islamic terrorists for being Islamic terrorists in 21st century enlightened America. We have to protect their fragile feelings and Heaven forbid we offend one of the “peaceful” Muslims the mainstream media is so diligent at talking about.
Let’s get one thing perfectly clear, Islamic terrorists do represent Islam. These are not just some crazy, deranged people who “claim” to represent Islam, they ARE Islam. All Muslims believe Sharia law is superior to Western culture, all Muslims support the destruction of Israel, and all Muslims support the global conquest of Islam. If they don’t support these basic Islamic goals, they are probably a Muslim in name only versus a practicing Muslim.
Kind of like those neighbors everyone seems to have that say they are Catholic but literally never attend church services or do anything to actually indicate they are Catholic. Except in this case, dogmatic, practicing Catholics don’t go out and murder “non-believers.” I digress.
The New York Times and other liberal mainstream media outlets tell blatant lies and downplay Islamic involvement in terror attacks. They are constantly playing the role of Islamic apologists despite Muslims being pretty clear on their disdain for America and our culture.
Muslims are part of the left’s hierarchy of victims and therefore immune from scrutiny or criticism. The New York Times would rather pander to Islamic terrorists than report facts. What a despicable organization.
Thankfully, The New York Times was called out on Twitter, like this post by Raheem Kassam, who called the “news” outlet “scumbags.”
“Imagine what it takes, as a newsroom with a huge editorial process, to get 9/11 so offensively incorrect. Scumbags,” Raheem Kassam said in the tweet.

Scumbags, indeed. Islamic terrorists who murder Americans in the name of Allah are the worst, but American “news” outlets who forfeit factual reporting in favor of Islamic sympathizing come in second.
