New York Times Editor Targeted by anti-Semites Laments ‘Cesspit of Hate’ on Twitter

New York Times editor Jonathan Weisman, who recently left behind his Twitter account and 35,000 followers because of the company’s inaction against blatantly anti-Semitic posts and accounts, restated his position in a first-person account published Friday, in which he said that the social media platform had become a “cesspit of hate.”

Weisman took personal note of the racist trolls on Twitter when he linked to a story that considered the emergence of fascism in the U.S. “For weeks, I had been barraged on Twitter by rank anti-Semitic comments, Nazi iconography of hooknosed Jews stabbing lovely Christians in the back, the gates of Auschwitz, and trails of dollar bills leading to ovens,” he wrote.

    He works for the NYTs…

    If fascism comes to America it will be because media organs like the NYTs bundled it into a prepaid taxi and handed the driver written directions.
    What if fascism, honest to god, armband wearing goose stepping and glass breaking “fascism” is less worse than what people like Jonathan Weisman have planned for us?
    What if?
