reminder that Weiss launched her career as a Free Speech Champion at Columbia by smearing pro-Palestinian Arab-American professors as racist antisemites and attempting to deny them tenure

She's such a dickhead. She even tried to say Eli Valley was a nazi, which was uhh quite some take. Thankfully he came back with gusto.

Even beyond her personal failings, as an editor for the opinion section I blame her for the continued appearance of absolute waste-of-space douchebags like Douthat and Dreher in the opinion section. I don't know if she's responsible, but she's an easy scapegoat.

She's a fucking Staff Editor lmao like she more than just works for the NYT she makes decisions there... amazing isn;t it fuck
Trump was right about the media being the enemy of the people but not in the way he thinks he is.

How can the media possibly inform the people when the people benefiting from our societal problems are responsible for reporting the news?

What do these people have against socialism? I don't get it. What has pure capitalism given them?
These people don't think for themselves and just fall prey to the false knowledge of their predecessors, following some flimsy line of "socialism = communism = Russia/China/any other race = bad" and "USA = capitalism = the greatest" logic. Capitalism doesn't have to give them anything, it's purely "my team vs. their team" mentality and willful ignorance.

Part of how she seems to pull of her schtick is that she actually holds some semblance of liberal beliefs, right?

That seems to be why Bill Maher is such a fan of hers.

I mean they let clown incarnate Bret Stephens produce written garbage for them too, so it's not like they're some holy palace with a few moving turd people. Gotta sneak in a few of those "actually it's [the left] that's the REAL problem" that dimwits pick up because we've done a pisspoor job creating pedagogy to make it clear most ills largely come from the conservatives and the centrists adhering to failed neoliberal concepts.

Bari Weiss is just a female Jordan Peterson: a dumb person's perceived smart person.

"Socialism" is a boogeyword used by Right-wingers (and Right-wing sympathizers like some Moderate Democrats) to scare people. It has been used this way for a LONG time, as Harry S. Truman noted in 1952:

Socialism is a scareword they have hurled at every advance the people have made in the last 20 years. Socialism is what they called public power. Socialism is what they called social security. Socialism is what they called farm price supports. Socialism is what they called bank deposit insurance. Socialism is what they called the growth of free and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for almost anything that helps all the people.
When "those" people call out against "socialism", they really are calling out against "progress".

Outside of being anti-Trump, which is a low bar for a progressive, she’s pretty conservative. Her schtick is stressing civility and ‘gotta hear both sides’ whenever an issue pops up ‘IE, caging kids is wrong but people saying ‘Fuck ICE’ are wronger’, lol.

Outside of being a hardcore zionist, her other politics boil down to ‘the left are all assholes which is why I am not one of em’

Imagine if the NYT fired all these idiots and spent that money on investigative reporters.

Socialism being responsible for the Pittsburgh shooter sure is a galaxy brain take
Oh there's a lot of very wealthy people that want the word "socialism" to be the most hated term in the dictionary.
it stands for "Intellectual Dark Web", ie all those insufferable assholes who think they're brave free thinkers for sitting around and "rationally" discussing topics like Maybe Black People Really Are Genetically Inferior and There Are Only Two Genders
Calling them intellectual is insulting.

More like "pseudo intellectual", it sounds smart but falls apart under any real scrutiny.

Leftists are critical of Israel, so I guess she is intentionally using that and pivoting it to mean leftists are anti-Semitic. Who knew that opposing oppression and subjugation of a population automatically makes you anti-Semitic.
