Two new revelations have occurred about Sarah Jeong, the New York Times’s proud new hire. One is that she is an equal-opportunity hater, having on more than one occasion tweeted out obscenities directed at our men in blue. The other is that her history of using social media to spew angry invective did not end quite as far in the past as her defenders have claimed.
The Daily Caller has unearthed a tweet from December 2017 that contains the text “f*ck the police* along with a GIF file in which anime-type characters physically assault a police officer. Here is a screenshot:
This is just the tip of the iceberg, as the following screenshot of tweets composed during Jeong’s “profane” period reveals (click image to enlarge):
In 2014, the Daily Caller reports, she wrote, “Let me know when a cop gets killed by a rock or molotov cocktail or a stray shard of glass from a precious precious window,” following up a year later with the obviously serious suggestion, “If we’re talking big sweeping bans on shit that kills people, why don’t we ever ever ever ever talk about banning the police?”
Although she describes herself as a “woman of color,” providing a dual platform for grievance mongering, she is not above attacking women — provided they’re white. During the 2016 election she eloquently tweeted “f*ck white women lol.”
Jeong’s water carriers on the Left are not only not troubled by her profanity-laced tweets but they seem to be on board with. At the very least, they can’t imagine what all the fuss is about. They were singing a different tune last month when ancient tweets from All-Star pitcher Josh Hader surfaced, showing misogynist, racist, and anti-gay streaks. “Josh Hader and America’s willingness to absolve white athletes,” blared the headline of a highly critical article at SBNation, owned by left-leaning Vox Media.
Hader can claim he was a teenager when he penned these tweets. What’s Jeong’s excuse?
