"Breaking at NYT: Communists Were Anti-American Soviet Tools"

Via InstapunditAs part of its weekly essay series on the legacy of the Russian Revolution, the New York Times has earnestly broken the news to its readers that the American Communist Party wasn’t a principled and well-meaning organization but an anti-American espionage operation. . . .

It will be interesting to read the pieces that come out 25 to 50 years too late, as the august Gray Lady awakens to other important news:

The Muslim Brotherhood hated Western ideas of freedom.
Iran was a committed enemy of the United States.
Cuban communists were anti-democratic thugs.
Abortion was an unspeakable tragedy that led to millions of unnecessary deaths.
Press bias and lack of self-awareness plus elite policy failures made the Trump presidency possible.
Social programs like Medicare were actually bankrupting the country.
Public service unions blighted the prospects of generations of immigrants and poor people of color in American cities.
Anti-Asian discrimination dominated college admissions offices under the guise of ‘racial justice’.
The collapse of free speech on college campuses was abetted by cowards and time servers who betrayed fundamental American principles.

Better late than never, we suppose…

I can't wait until 2050 when we find out that Trump won in 2016, and it was becuase a lot of people hated what the NYT loved, and Hillary really sucked as an American and a leader.

Remember when she couldn't even come out and talk to her supporters on election night. That's just what you want in a leader: a big fat pussy.

Can't wait what they have to say about Walter Duranty and Harrison Salisbury.

No, that's what she likes. She was also plastered out of her mind that night.

Well at least the Clinton's weren't Russian stooges. They were owned by the Chinese communists.
