New York Times Honcho Hates American Flag

And the sun rises in the East.

In today’s political environment the US Flag has become a swastika to the Left. They hate America and thus hate the symbols of America. Here, one programmed leftist, who uses her race as a rationale, details her loathing of a flag whose adherents gave her the opportunity of free speech and thus a job at a leftist rag.

FNC: “New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay faced more backlash Tuesday following her claim that seeing American flags on pickup trucks ‘disturbed’ her, as prominent Black voices felt she played the ‘race card’ when addressing the criticism.

‘I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [sic] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing … Essentially the message was clear. This is my country. This is not your country. I own this,” Gay said. She blamed ‘whiteness’ for the flags she observed and said Americans would continue to observe such uncouth behavior until whites were ready to surrender to black radicals

“The left-wing MSNBC contributor tweeted she was being ‘trolled’ because of her comment, writing that ‘trolling a Black journalist with the American flag is not the own some people think it is.’ ” Yes it is, as it exposes her antipathy for America and the American flag. Like water on an Oz witch, seeing Old Glory must have made Gay melt with hate.

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

Leo Terrell hit Gay for “playing the race card” but didn’t expect anything else given where she works. “That’s what liberals and progressives do,” he said. “People are responding in outrage, including myself, regarding her attack on the America flag … she doesn’t get a pass because she is Black. However, that right of expression works both ways and she should not hide behind her race,” Terrell said. “When liberals and progressive have no argument they resort to the race card in an effort to turn down the heat.”

“Mara Gay is old enough to know the difference between the American flag and the Confederate flag. Tens of thousands of Black patriots have died in battle to defend the Stars and Stripes. What a shame that she does not appreciate this,” conservative pundit Deroy Murdock said. “If the American flag makes her so sick, she should move to another country, where she won’t have to see it,” Murdock continued. “Should she make that decision, I hereby pledge to buy her a one-way plane ticket to whatever nation will make her happier than the United States of America.” We suggest North Korea.

“What? A Black New York Times writer whipping out the race card! Say it ain’t so!! Ahh, the race card. Suitable for use as a sword and a shield. Don’t leave home without it,” Larry Elder said. Mara Gay thinks being black gives her a pass on any vile opinion. It does not.
