Kudos to Disloyalty, Anti-semitism, and Obscenity

NEW YORK, March 22, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ --  Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on an editorial in today's New York Times:

    A good index of how sick our culture has become can be found in a New York Times editorial on March 22.

    It hails the three most radical members of Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib for "dismantling one of the most tiresome and inaccurate stereotypes in politics: that women lawmakers are inherently more civil, more collaborative, less power-hungry and less personally ambitious than men." It would be great to know how many Americans think this development is a good thing.

    What is most striking about the editorial are the three examples it chose to prove its point.

    It cited Ocasio-Cortez's plea for more primary challenges against moderate Democrats: "Long story short, I need you to run for office."

    It cited Omar's tweet saying American foreign policy is bought by Jews: "It's all about the Benjamins, baby."

    It (partially) cited Tlaib's comment about the president: "We're gonna impeach the [expletive]!" Note: she called Trump a motherf*****.

    By celebrating disloyalty, anti-Semitism, and obscenity, the New York Times lost whatever moral credibility it had left. We certainly don't want to read any more of its editorials lecturing the Catholic Church.
