Scapegoating, You Say?

The New York Times is now blaming Republicans for the massacre in Orlando, arguing that a mass-murdering ISIS groupie who may have been a conflicted homosexual was inspired by . . . conservative opposition to gay marriage. 

Well. It’s a big tent, but maybe not quite that big.

It takes a fair amount of chutzpah to use the term “scapegoated for political gain” in an editorial in which you are scapegoating your political rivals for political gain.

This is a shameful spectacle. It is difficult to see how any self-respecting journalist could be a party to it.
