what the fuck does The New York Times think it’s doing?
do they want Donald Trump to win?
just a brief rant today for Christmas Eve. I’ll be back tomorrow with a Christmas Day message and a wonderful video by my friend Sandi Bachom, and then who knows — I might actually take a couple of days off. but don’t hold your breath.

is The New York Times in the tank for Little Donny Fuckface? do they want him to win? it’s a legit question, because their reporting of the news sure makes it appear that they do.
the other day, the Times decided to check out this whole “Trump sure is sounding a fuck of lot like Hitler these days” thing, and — spoiler alert — they did it in the most tepid way possible. because of course they did. they’re The New York Times.
Trump’s Long Fascination With Genes and Bloodlines Gets New Scrutiny
The former president’s remark about undocumented immigrants “poisoning the blood” of the country is one of several comments he’s made over the years regarding “good genes.”
look how the Times frames it: Donald Trump has always had a thing about “good genes.” that’s so adorable — he’s just another madcap eccentric with wacky ideas, right?
much in the same way that Jeffrey Dahmer was into alternative food sources, and Genghis Khan took an avid interest in tourism.
“You have good genes, you know that, right? You have good genes. A lot of it is about the genes, isn’t it, don’t you believe?” Mr. Trump told the audience. “The racehorse theory, you think we’re so different? You have good genes in Minnesota.”
people are just like racehorses — so adorable!
Hitler isn’t even mentioned until the 7th paragraph, and when he is, it’s in the most mealy-mouthed some people say way imaginable.
As with the speech in 2020, Mr. Trump’s remarks have been criticized by historians, Jewish groups and liberals, who said his language recalled the ideology of eugenics promulgated by Nazis in Germany and white supremacists in America.
ok, some people are saying Trump sounds like Hitler. is it true? does he? are some people right? it’s your fucking job, New York Times, to tell us if they’re right.
the 2024 election is over ten months away. this far out, presidential campaign polling is still unreliable. for every poll that shows Trump in the lead, there’s another one that puts Biden on top — but you wouldn’t know that from a casual consumption of the news.
here’s The New York Times’ front page from November 6, 2023. their coverage of good polling for Trump gets prime Page One placement.
on December 19, when the Times’ own polling showed Biden leading Trump nationally, the cramped single-column headline above that story said the exact opposite.
the article is nothing but doom and gloom for Biden, but if you scroll down far enough, you finally find the one paragraph that reports Biden is actually ahead.
But there is considerable uncertainty over whether disaffected voters will even vote. While it is still early, the race is flipped among the likely electorate, with Mr. Biden leading by two percentage points.
got that? if you ask the people who are actually going to vote, Biden’s on top.
this is the Times’ own poll — one that they commissioned — and they’re burying the news. why? because narrative, that’s why.
what’s the end game here?
does the Times imagine they’re going to get favored treatment during Agolf Shitler’s Thousand Year Reich?
has no one at The New York Times ever read a history book?
it’s not like the Times hasn’t been down this road before.
out here in the real world, Joe Biden is fucking crushing it. the economy is surging, unemployment has never been lower, wages are on the rise, inflation is waning, prices are starting to come down — have you filled your car’s tank lately? — and unions are making a comeback.
and Donald Trump is a Hitler-wanna-be with four criminal indictments.
it’s maddening to watch our national press downplay Biden’s accomplishments and instead focus on the complete non-story of his age, while at the same time soft-pedaling Trump’s and the GOP’s active efforts to turn America into a right-wing dictatorship.
people, democracy is on the line here.
if the media just did its fucking job, the polls wouldn’t even be close.
