The NYT and Sarah Jeong

A story doing the rounds over the last couple of days concerned the New York Times hiring an Asian-American woman by the name of Sarah Jeong to their editorial board. Jeong, who is usually pictured with bright red hair, is 30 years old and a graduate of both Berkeley and Harvard.

The trouble began when eagle-eyed Twitter users discovered Jeong had serious hang-ups about white people and wasn’t shy of airing them. For example:

And that’s just a tiny sample, her Twitter history going back years is littered with this stuff.

It wasn’t long before a mob formed demanding she be fired. However, a portion of this mob was made up of people who would ordinarily not want her sacked, but in a world where left-wing mobs can get people (e.g. Kevin Williamson) fired on what seems like a weekly basis, they decided to adopt their enemy’s tactics. The NYT was having none of it though, and issued this statement:

Now this is pretty pathetic: as the many examples of Jeong’s tweets show, she was not “responding to harassment” and it is doubtful she regrets her behaviour (as if that was enough to stop a right-winger being lynched). However, I believe the NYT was right to stand behind her, only not for the silly reasons they give in that statement. What they should have said was this:

“We were of course fully aware of Sarah Jeong’s opinions expressed on Twitter – we are not complete morons, we do check this stuff. However, we see no reason to believe why such opinions make her unfit to serve on our editorial board, indeed we think they’re a sign she’ll fit right in. Therefore, she will assume her post as intended.”

This would have the advantage of being absolutely true, and be a sign that the NYT management are at least prepared to stand by their decisions. Rather than howl with outrage at her appointment, people should just take it as a clear indication of what sort of outfit the NYT is and afford it a commensurate degree of respect. Firing Jeong won’t solve anything, the problem is she was hired in the first place; she’s merely a symptom of a much deeper malaise.

Sarah Jeong is an over-privileged idiot who sounds for all the world like she’s bitter over her high school crush taking a white girl to the prom instead of her. If she’s 30 now, I doubt she’ll ever grow up. But it was the NYT‘s decision to hire her in full knowledge of who she was, and they should either stand by that or the people responsible resign.

  1. Six Months ago (Feb 13th) The NYT hired Quinn Norton for exactly the same role.

    Ms. Norton had a very short career at the NYT. Exactly Eight hours.
    The NYT fired the same day – because of one nasty word in one tweet from sometime in the past, and also she was pals with some bloke who’d used a false name on internet chat groups.

  2. Toby Young has a good article on this stuff in this week’s Spectator.

    Jeff Bezos owns the NYT and is, unless I’m much mistaken, a white male. Perhaps he doesn’t have a wikipedia entry?

  3. “””……“Why don’t we play a little … Bangkok Alinsky rules…?”…”””

    Anglosphere is command society. That is the reason because Alinsky won in the first place. Alinsky key point is to use enemy rules taboos and dogmas against the enemy.

    Alinsky tactics demand flexibility. It can not used by people who,s every aspect of life is covered by some taboo or dogma.

    Every normal society would declare mr. Bezos enemy of the people and get his property confiscated and then imprisoned, sent out or hanged.
    Like Russians did with Khodorkovski.

    But but but, capitalism, private ownership, free speech. And mr. Bezos hires anti white people and uses his money to destroy America for pure fun and hatred.

  4. Huh, is that heartiste link serious?
    Sarah Jeong was pals with Andrew Auernheimer?

    The same Andrew Auernheimer who was pals with Quinn Norton?
    Except Quinn Norton was sacked for her connection to him.

  5. The NYT is NOT owned by Bezos.
    It is owned by the Sulzberger family.
    The current boss man is a 37-yo who doesn’t like it when Trump gives the NYT the same treatment they give Trump.

    “Every normal society would declare mr. Bezos enemy of the people and get his property confiscated and then imprisoned, sent out or hanged.”

    I’m guessing English isn’t your first language. Before I make an arse of myself on the internet again, could you clarify what you mean by this please?

    @Steveatthepub
    Nice to see you again old friend, you knew me by another name.

  7. More interesting that her tweets was the elite media defense of them, that whites are an evil oppressor overclass, so it’s OK to kick them in the teeth as often as possible. But if whites really were a ruthlessly oppressive overclass, people like Sarah Jeong wouldn’t be so richly rewarded for spewing anti-white hate all over the interwebs. It’s a self-refuting proposition.

  8. More interesting that her tweets was the elite media defense of them

    Yep, quite some mental gymnastics have gone into explaining how she’s actually quite normal.

  9. Because all the evidence is that getting rid of white people brings about peace, civility and technological progress. See Wakanda for example.

  10. As if I needed another reason to despise these people but yes now I do. I suppose Its nice though for one of them to drop the pretence and show the world just what they have in store for us given the chance. They don’t want ‘equality’ they want us punished and then gone…..what a pleasant bunch.

  11. She is free to say what she likes, as stupid & bigoted as it may be.
    In addition to spending years on end tweeting “fuck you” to the establishment, she has;
    …..graduated from what is one of the world’s most prestigious law schools, wears a stupid hairdo in a weirdo colour, has culturally appropriated the name “Sarah” and possibly placed international telephone calls.

    She owes her freedom to do these things to old white men, aged in their late 80’s or older.

    If not for these old white men, she’d be still in Korea – which would be entirely communist (or under a “left wing government”) – she’s be speaking in a guttural rural accent, scraping bark off trees and digging for wild turnips to eat, wouldn’t dare to have other people even think she may have anything but utmost respect for the establishment, would go to a most unpleasant jail for sporting her current haircut & also for her hair colour, would be killed by the government for placing an international phone call.

    Instead she’s in America, free to tell those who bought her freedom & academic opportunities that in her opinion they’re just a bunch of cunts.

    Some of those old white men who paid for her freedom returned to the USA this week, in the hold of a USAF Galaxy Globemaster, with a UN flag draped over their coffin.

    Other old white men who came back alive spent their lives in flyover country, wearing overalls in a mechanics shop, or on a farm or perhaps in a foundry, until they retired, now they eke out an existence in a nursing home, wearing an American Legion cap on Veteran’s Day and smiling at their great-grandchildren who fondle the Purple Heart and ask “what’s this Gramps?”

    Would Sarah Jeong be prepared to reciprocate?
    Would she be willing to die so that others could live in freedom and call her horrid names?

    The contempt I feel for this slut is beyond measure.
    As is my contempt for the New York Times.

  12. The important thing is what The Honey Badger has to say. However I assumed with the coloured hair she was a Lesbian. Any one else?

  13. How were Koreans fucking oppressed minority? Chinese inbthe US were but just because they look the same is actual true racism.

    I also mean this seriously if she doesn’t like white Americans she could go back to Seoul. Of course there her mental illness might not be socially lauded.

  14. This from “Fud”: “As if I needed another reason to despise these people but yes now I do. I suppose Its nice though for one of them to drop the pretence and show the world just what they have in store for us given the chance. They don’t want ‘equality’ they want us punished and then gone…..what a pleasant bunch.”

    So, Fud. You despise Oriental people, do you? Is there anyone you do like, apart from white, right wing, neo-Nazi gobshites like you?

    And as for the comment from “Steve at the Pub” ie the resident pub bore who nurses half a bitter for about sixteen hours and never ceases telling people about the good points of Adolf Hitler… Maybe if Sarah was actually treated with a modicum of respect by people like you she wouldn’t have resorted to taking to Twitter. Ever thought of that, you moonshine-chugging, sister-marrying pigfucker?

  15. Honey Badger maybe if Hitler was treated with respect he would have become the person he was.

    I mean is in Argentina.

    Hmm…. I not sure we really should go around justifying racism because we feel we are victims.

    Because we should be going around Fisting.

  16. Steve in the pub.

    Maybe its the lack of communism is the reason she is so angry?

    That and lack of fisting.

  17. @HB

    “So, Fud. You despise Oriental people, do you?”

    I can’t work out whether you know Thud’s wife / kids or not – nor which would be funnier!

  18. ““So, Fud. You despise Oriental people, do you?”

    I can’t work out whether you know Thud’s wife / kids or not – nor which would be funnier!”

    So, My Bumming Arse. Are you saying Fud’s wife, who is also his sister, auntie and first cousin, is Oriental?

    Therefore, are you saying Fud is Oriental? So he hates himself…?

    Get in the sea.

  19. I also mean this seriously if she doesn’t like white Americans she could go back to Seoul.

    Yeah, she could absolutely go back to Korea. But not only that, she’s also free to live anywhere she wants to in the US and she’s in Portland, the whitest big city in America. She could move to Detroit or East St Louis and never have to be bothered by whitey again.

    The cognitive dissonance is off the charts with these SJWs. This is not going to end well.

  20. “Honey Badger maybe if Hitler was treated with respect he would have become the person he was.

    I mean is in Argentina.

    Hmm…. I not sure we really should go around justifying racism because we feel we are victims.

    Because we should be going around Fisting.”

    Thank you, Wankpuffin, for confirming all my thoughts about you. Please, fist away! Oh, and learn English whilst you’re at it… And keep off the paint thinner…

  21. This, from JerryC: “I also mean this seriously if she doesn’t like white Americans she could go back to Seoul.

    Yeah, she could absolutely go back to Korea. But not only that, she’s also free to live anywhere she wants to in the US and she’s in Portland, the whitest big city in America. She could move to Detroit or East St Louis and never have to be bothered by whitey again.

    The cognitive dissonance is off the charts with these SJWs. This is not going to end well.”

    OK. WHY SHOULD SHE MOVE TO DETROIT OR EAST ST LOUIS??? Maybe Sarah’s Twitter fume is directed at racist twats like you. Ever thought of that, you sister-fucking, paint-sniffing, Cheeto-Hitler worshipping fucktard?

  22. I didn’t know Hitler had Cheetos?

    The things you learn.

    The reason Detroit would be good is because the white patriarchy has already been ethnically cleansed.

    PS I think the Caps are overdoing it people might think you are serious.

  23. Sarah Jeong moved to the US as a child and has since attended elite educational institutions and got a job with a leading (for now) newspaper.

    This suggest the “evil white men” who run America are really quite right on and inclusive.

    I suspect the problem with Jeong is not that she’s not been shown sufficient respect, as our new angry tourretes lady suggests, but that she’s been constantly indulged.

    I have some experience of doing business in South Korea and I can assure you that any immigrant would have a hell of a battle to succeed. Furthermore, if Jeong decided to move to Korea, she would find her employment opportunities radically restricted by her sex.

    She is vastly privileged compared with almost everyone else on the planet, including most white Americans, but is such an ingrate she can’t see it.

  24. Ethnic cleansing sounds bad. Maybe some from marketing should get onto that.

    Melanin enhancement program? Increasing diversity?

    Or though nothing is less diverse than aa diverse area. Because without white americans all the other cultures get pushed out

  25. “The reason Detroit would be good is because the white patriarchy has already been ethnically cleansed.”

    And there speaks a racist. Someone with the IQ lower than the number of his teeth.

    Why should she be unhappy in Portland? She’s done nothing wrong so why should she have to move from there because of the shit she is getting from knuckle-dragging, sister-fucking, paint-sniffing twats like you?

    Get in the fucking sea.

  26. MC you critised her.

    You are white and burn in the sun, fit only to be mole person.

    Therefore racist and sexist. Therefore basucally Hitler.

    Basically you are worse than Hitler. Cause your name is in Caps.

    You are Caps Lock Hitler! Or Tommy Robinson.

  27. It’s a self-refuting proposition.

    A Canadian commentator has coined the phrase “it’s not much a genocide if we can still hear you bitching.”

    Would she be willing to die so that others could live in freedom and call her horrid names?

    Free speech for all, but two years Federal Service if you want to vote.

  28. MC – “Sarah Jeong moved to the US as a child and has since attended elite educational institutions and got a job with a leading (for now) newspaper.

    This suggest the “evil white men” who run America are really quite right on and inclusive.”

    Really? You sure that’s not despite her background instead of because of it? I’m sure you were delighted when those black kids finally got into Montgomery High School in Alabama all those years, weren’t you, you excoriating, sperm-drinking, lady’s front garden…

  29. From Wankpuffin: “MC you critised her.

    You are white and burn in the sun, fit only to be mole person.

    Therefore racist and sexist. Therefore basucally Hitler.

    Basically you are worse than Hitler. Cause your name is in Caps.

    You are Caps Lock Hitler! Or Tommy Robinson.”

    Which translated into English means…

    “Gibber, gibber, fnarr, fnarr, wibble, wibble, she called me racist, blimp, blimp, baaaa, ptang, ptang, I’m not a racist or a fascist, bingle, bongle, parp, oink, waaah.”

  30. Steve etc–Well said. Those men paid their lives and what we have now is a surplus of shite-scum like the Honeycunt. Anybody think that bitch would sacrifice anything for anybody? The sick underbelly of the Me-Me generation of middle-class leftists –most of whom have never wanted a day in their worthless lives. And their hate is largely a re-tread of some heated up adolescent beef with middle class Mummy and Daddy. The pathology on display shows that war is inevitable. There can be no compromise with such hate. They must destroy us or we them. Or if need be destroy it all. A species that produces the creatures now crawling out of the depths might be better gone forever.

  31. Mr Ecks you think Honey Badgers a chick?

    I assumed it was Tim. Cause Honeybadgers are internet lingo for women in the Mens Right Movement.

  32. WP-Who knows–or cares– with assorted mental cases? If she is female I bet even her vibrator doesn’t like her.

  33. Mr Ecks “Anybody think that bitch would sacrifice anything for anybody?” She made a sacrifice by talking to whitey.

    Because she is so much better than you. I didn’t like the French Revolution, but am beginning to understand the desire to attack aristocrats.

  34. This from so-called Mr Ecks: “Steve etc–Well said. Those men paid their lives and what we have now is a surplus of shite-scum like the Honeycunt.

    1. The Honey Badger has served in the British Army, fought in Iraq in 91. That’s the British Army, not the shite amateur organisation you Yanks have.

    2. Those men gave their lives up to defeat fascism. The same fascism you are promoting, you sister-fucking, paint-sniffing, snaggle toothed paedophile.

    3. The Honey Badger grew up on a tough council estate in one of Britain’s toughest towns. She is now in a very high paid job thanks to her own efforts.

    4. You want war? Bring it on, fella. There are more of us than there are wastes of sperm like you. You won’t stand a chance.

    Fuck off and die.

  35. Oh, and by the way, Wankpuffin, the Honey Badger is most definitely a SHE. You, on the other hand, are an afterbirth.

  36. Yeah, let’s give people like her with political power. She sure sounds trustful. This stuff is so bizarre. It’s simply amazing what the West is doing to itself.

  37. Ahhh… I get it now, Wankpuffin. You think I’m a transvestite or transsexual, am I right?

    Sorry to disappoint you and your fantasies but The Honey Badger has two little Honey Badgers and is married to a rather big and fierce Honey Badger who would eat you for breakfast…

  38. From Howard Roark: “Yeah, let’s give people like her with political power. She sure sounds trustful. This stuff is so bizarre. It’s simply amazing what the West is doing to itself.”

    What the West is doing to itself is tearing itself apart. Who is responsible? The likes of YOU with your love for a tiny-handed sexual predator who said he’d like to fuck his own daughter.

    Intelligence is not really your strong point, is it, Howie?

  39. “”””………What the West is doing to itself is tearing itself apart……”””””

    Yes. 21 century will be Russian and Eastern European evil Nazi time. This is called Hitler posthumous revenge. You wanted destroy Nazism but destroyed yourselves.

  40. No honey badger, aunt etc not but wife and kids definitely are , me just your average bitter twisted white guy with a rather extended family of all persuasions. I do like you calling me ‘fud’ though it rather puts me in my place but I do feel a little left out as all other regulars here have been abused at a rather higher level than me…..can you please indulge me in some of your more cutting turns of phrase? , yours respectfully, Fud.

  41. “You sure that’s not despite her background instead of because of it?”

    I am suggesting she has succeeded neither because nor in spite of her background, but because the US is actually a diverse and inclusive society where anyone can succeed, ie it’s not the terrible racist hellhole claimed by the loons of the left.

  42. Honey badger your little honey badgers have to be adults or old teenagers since you claim to be in your fifties. I am concern about your big husband though. If he beats me up he might have a heart attack.

  43. married to a rather big and fierce Honey Badger who would eat you for breakfast…

    Oh no, have we sunk to “my Dad’s bigger than your Dad” already?
