New York Times reporter calls Trump supporters ‘enemies of the state’

Yesterday, NBC’s Chuck Todd resurrected the long-debunked myth that there is no liberal media bias. As John Sexton notes at Hot Air, “the discussion [between Todd and a reporter at the Verge] started with whether or not Todd would allow Sen. Ted Cruz to appear on Meet the Press. Todd said he wasn’t sure he would because Cruz isn’t credible and may just be there to gaslight viewers. That led to a broader points about objectivity and fairness.”

As if more proof was needed to show how out of touch with reality Todd is, a reporter with New York Times teased an article on Twitter that read, “Today’s #January6SelectCommittiee underscores the America’s current essential natsec dilemma: Work to combat legitimate national security threats now entails calling a current politician’s supporters enemies of the state [Emphasis added]

Here’s a screenshot of the tweet, which has since been deleted:

Would the author of these views, Katie Brenner, also consider the protesters who laid waste to large swaths of American cities last summer “enemies of the state”? How about the protesters in downtown Portland, Ore., who set a fire inside a federal courthouse and shot commercial grade fireworks at police in early July? Aren’t all federal buildings “citadels of democracy,” to borrow a term Democrats have used in connection with Jan. 6? Or do cases like these not count because the perpetrators behind them are not supporters of Donald Trump?

Glenn Greenwald reacted to tweet with a tweet of his own:

And the Federalist’s Sean Davis had this to say:
