Feature NYT Story Endorses Hillary's Anti-Trump Big Lies

Feature NYT Story Endorses Hillary’s Anti-Trump Big Lies

by Stephen Lendman

I criticize deplorable Times reporting and opinions so often, I imagine I’m one of its leading critics - a deplorable publication featuring misinformation and Big Lies on issues mattering most, press agent for Hillary, ignoring her high crimes, bashing Trump relentlessly.

Its latest broadside featured her claiming a “radical fringe” took over the GOP under Trump. In a same-day article, I explained a “radical fringe” runs America under both wings of duopoly governance - supporting privilege exclusively at the expense of progressive politics, serving everyone equitably and fairly.

The Times: Hillary “delivered a blistering denunciation Thursday of Donald J. Trump’s personal and political history with race, arguing in her most forceful terms yet that a nationalist conservative fringe had engulfed the Republican Party.”

Fact: Hillary delivered a vicious ad hominem attack devoid of substance.

Fact: Trump has no “political history.” He never held public office.

Fact: A “nationalist conservative fringe” runs Washington under both parties, mostly indistinguishable from each other - pro-war, pro-business, anti-progressive, anti-labor, anti-what ordinary people care about most.

Fact: America’s deplorable state is excluded from Times reporting. Instead it endorses a war goddess racketeer, a woman belonging in prison, outrageously calling her “one of the most broadly and deeply qualified presidential candidates in modern history.”

The Times: Hillary’s “effort on Thursday was remarkable for its exhaustive accounting of Mr. Trump’s controversial racial history…”

Fact: Hillary’s speech was a litany of Big Lies. Trump’s racist comments on the stump deserve criticism - no reason to say he has a “controversial racial history,” claiming it is political bluster.

The Times quoted Hillary saying “(t)he de facto merger between Breitbart and the Trump campaign represents a landmark achievement for the alt-right.”

Fact: Whatever definition applies to alt-right politics, right-wing extremism runs America. Neocons infest Washington, dominating Democrat and Republican policymaking. 

The Times promotes the illusion of fundamental differences today between both wings of duopoly governance when not a dime’s worth of difference separates them.

It quoted Hillary, saying “the party of Lincoln has become the party of Trump.”

Maybe so, but the party of Jefferson, FDR and JFK became the party of Hillary - humanity’s worst nightmare.

The Times supports a ruthlessly dangerous woman perhaps intending nuclear war if anointed president - what better reason to oppose her.
