If you haven’t been following the Sarah Jeong story, Miguel touched on it earlier this morning.
Right now she is trending on Twitter.
The New York Times released a statement that is total bullshit.

Other members of the Leftist media are circling the wagons around her.

“It’s all the alt-right’s fault this got noticed. There is nothing to see here. ”
A lot of people on the internet today confusing the expressive way anti-racists and minorities talk about "white people" with actual race-based hatred, for some unfathomable reason

“This is just the horrible shit minorities usually say behind white people’s backs. There is nothing to see here.”
Apropos of nothing, I think @sarahjeong is a phenomenal writer, who I learn something new from every time I read her.

“She’s a good writer, there is nothing to see here.”
It’s not just the media though, it is the entire social justice community.
Sarah Jeong is being targeted by the white supremacy movement on social media. I will not stand silent about this, no matter the backlash. Asian Americans have been silent for far too long and we should not be shamed into silence forever.

“Criticizing Jeong is racist.”
Just take a blood pressure pill and go though the comments on any one of these Tweets. The people defending Jeong break down into a few of categories.
- Her Tweets aren’t racist/are the good kind of racism because white people really are awful.
- White people are so fragile/are special snowflakes for whining about this.
- If you were upset about the firing of [conservative writer] you are a hypocrite for wanting Jeong to get fired.
A consistent refrain used in the counter is some variant of “this is how you get Trump reelected in 2020.”
No, it’s not.
This is how you get more Nazis.
Let me be clear on this. A few of her Tweets really did come within a hair’s breadth of advocacy for white genocide. Specifically the Tweets about white people going extinct and canceling white people.
What is considered (by the Left) to be American’s most prestigious news paper put on their editorial board a person who did a long tweet thread about how white people stink.
The exact language was used to by Nazis to dehumanize the Jews and to get German children to identify Jews (by their smell). That exact language was used by segregationists to justify Jim Crow (“we can’t let black people in here, they stink.”)
But since she said it about white people, she gets a six-figure job, prestige, and accolades.
Sarah Jeong is a living, breathing, Tweeting recruiting ad for Stormfront. Her hiring and being defended by the NYT is evidence that Left leaning media outlets in Democrat rich states truly think that “deversity” means “get rid of the white people.”
This confirms then reaffirms every single thing white nationalists groups have been saying for years.
White Nationalists: “The Liberals hate white people and want to wipe them out and replace them with minorities who also hate white people.”
Liberals: “No we don’t, you’re just paranoid.”
White Nationalists: *Points to NYT hiring of Jeong*
Today they answered “We’re going to go with being the Progressve Der Strumer and hire ourselves the South Korean Julius Streicher.”
This isn’t a meme about how you get more Trump. This is a serious issue about how you get a race war.
