NYT’s Nicholas Kristof & the Spirit of Charlie Hebdo

On the day when journalists were massacred in Paris, while blood still ran wet where they had fallen, and as eye witnesses described the killers’ shouts of “Allahu Akbar” – “Allah is great” – the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof asked the world not to judge the killers too quickly: most urgently, he said, don’t jump to the conclusion they are Muslims.

Really? Even when they sounded the Muslim prayer? Even when they called their deeds, loud and clear in the streets of Paris, “vengeance for the Prophet”?

Here’s what Kristof did not do: condemn the killings. Praise those who had been slaughtered. Express horror at their execution. And admit that men who praise Allah after committing mass murder are, religious profiling or not, probably going to turn out to be Muslim…


Of all the writers at NYT, Kristof is perhaps the most easily ridiculed.

Blogger Steve Sailer has a funny piece about him (on the same idiotic piece that the Investigative Project has noted above).  Kristof even brings up the discredited #IllRideWithYou, calling it “big-hearted compassion.” 

My KristofBot’s content generation programming is succeeding beyond expectations

As you may have noticed, right after the first Ferguson pogrom, the crack iSteve R&D department performed an experimental cerebral cognitive hack on NYT columnist Nicholas Kristof (codenamed Operation Deep Slate) turning the former Pulitzer-winner into an iSteve Content GeneratorBot.

KristofBot continues to generate iSteveable output at a gratifying pace… [M]y KristofBot is performing so well that I’ve rolled out this hack widely in recent months. I’ll leave it you to figure out who else is now running the program.

    Oh c’mon, this guy’s got nothin’ on Krugman.

    • Frau Katze

      He deals in sappier topics.

    • Pete_Brewster

      Krugman is at least not unaware of the problems caused by unrelenting austerity for everyone but bankers and relieving Europe’s peoples of their right to issue their own money.

    as Rush Limbaugh said today.. NYT would blame white people “Tea Party” straight up if they could ….middle east brown people??? naa

    • Frau Katze

      Always white people. Unless they’re Chechens.

      • Rosenmops

        The NYT makes Chechens honorary brown people since they are Muzzle-ems. Meanwhile they demote conservative Christian brown people down to the rank of white people.

    Look. The Grey Lady didn’t print anything resembling the truth about the evil of communism till the Wall came down and she had to pretend she hadn’t been the Bolsheviks’ cheerleader for 70 years. She won’t whisper a word against Islam till the Star of David flies over the radioactive ashes of Mecca, Riyadh and Doha.

    She never calls evil by its name till the menfolk are done defeating it.

    The NYT’s has been irrelevant for decades

      Anyone who takes that paper seriously is a fool.

    Get real. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then there is a very good chance that it is…a mooslim killer
