So yeah, 4 years ago but not so long ago that it is not culturally relevant to current times. Meanwhile, we socially crucify people and ruin their careers and lives over stupid things they said a decade or more ago, often times when it was accurate of socially acceptable culture at that time. Sure some things, no matter when they are said, should be looked upon with disdain, but we don't even give people the benefit of the doubt that they have grown and changed 10 or more years later. With that said, why did the NYT times stand behind this sorry excuse for a human being? Is it because she was female, Asian, liberal, and was directing her bigotry towards the hated group (white men)?

We all know what would have happened if it was a white guy saying those things about an Asian female.....

Bet y'all hold the Fauxsnooze personnel to this level of vetting... Here is part of the NYT's excuse as to why she was acting that way:




From the woman in question: "I engaged in what I thought of at the time of counter-trolling. While it was intended as satire, I deeply regret that I mimicked the language of my harassers. These comments were not aimed at a general audience, because general audiences do not engage in harassment campaigns. I can understand how hurtful these posts are out of context, and would not do it again."

Wrong again.

As of December 2017, the New York Times has a total of 3.5 million paid subscriptions in both print and digital versions, and more than 130 million monthly readers, more than double its audience two years previously.

In February 2018, The New York Times Company reported increased revenue from the digital-only subscriptions, adding 157,000 new subscribers to a total of 2.6 million digital-only subscribers. Digital advertising also saw growth during this period.

Drudge had 846,158,225 readers in the past month. That's what real news does for you. People will actually take a look.

Sorry stirrymcfuckface, the only thing that actually triggered me was how the forum reverted to mangeling pictures again instead of putting those nice scroll bars up.

Yeah greenie, those sort of excuses either need to work unilaterally or not at all. It shouldn't really matter if they play for your team or not lest it appear to be extremely hypocritical. She is simply a bigot.

Well I see Hap still can't help himself to post stupid shit directed at me even after all this time that the forum was down and he was in a forced timeout. Sad.

Using satire as an excuse only works if you aren't white and/or male. I get it, your head is so far up your ass that you can't see what is clearly double standards. The truth is, if it was a white guy claiming satire, counter trolling, for making similar bigoted statements about asian women, black people, illegal immigrants, muslims, etc. you would be one of the first in line screaming to have his head removed. No benefit of the doubt would given, the racism and bigotry would automatically be assumed.

Look around...You're triggered at the drop of a horse paddy. I liked you better when you had me on ignore. Can we go back to that, plz?

LOL. If you I make a post, you claim I am triggered or throw out some other random stupid nonsense. You and Hap are basically the same person, neither one of you can help making jabs at me or responding to me.

That my friend is being triggered.

Yeah, I cleared my ignore list because it was kind of pointless. I kept seeing the two of you constantly and repeatedly respond to my posts like moths to a flame. Yeah your infatuation with me is a little disturbing, but at least this way I can actually see what you are writing instead of just that you had posted.

We were all on a forced time out. Have you been living under a rock or are you just pretending to be stupid? The server was down for a few weeks.
