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.
