On Wednesday, the normally far-Left New York Times decided to publish a piece by Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton, advancing a mainstream position that President Trump should use the US military to quell the nationwide riots and looting over the last two weeks.
“One thing above all else will restore order to our streets: an overwhelming show of force to disperse, detain and ultimately deter lawbreakers. But local law enforcement in some cities desperately needs backup, while delusional politicians in other cities refuse to do what’s necessary to uphold the rule of law. The American people aren’t blind to injustices in our society, but they know that the most basic responsibility of government is to maintain public order and safety. In normal times, local law enforcement can uphold public order. But in rare moments, like ours today, more is needed, even if many politicians prefer to wring their hands while the country burns.”
At least that was the apparent reaction last night, after dozens of Times employees tweeted that publishing Cotton “puts black New York Times staff in danger,” in an obvious coordinated effort.
Perhaps my favorite thing about the idiotic NYT employees enraged at the paper running an op-ed from a US Senator that happens to reflect the views of 7 in 10 Americans is that they're doing the stupid "repeat this slogan after me" tactic they learned in college pic.twitter.com/Y4I1HuPsnh

Weird, with such a vehement rebuke of the Times, one may have thought they was burying the story of the Holocaust or something.
The Left is truly deranged.
