It turns out Renata is not very bright. Or, if she is bright, she willingly made herself appear the fool by sidestepping an issue larger than a Nimitz class aircraft carrier. She's a writer who has come under fire from The New York Times for a criticism of Judge Sirica. The criticism was a single sentence, and demonstrably true, and the Times decided to devote no less than eight stories to bashing her. Here's the sentence in question:
- Contrary to his reputation as a hero, Sirica was in fact a corrupt, incompetent, and dishonest figure, with a close connection to Senator Joseph McCarthy and clear ties to organized crime.
Why do I think Ms. Renata is not very bright? Her analysis of why the Times is going after her is so far off the mark it made me sit up and laugh out loud. She thinks it's because she criticized the press. Wrong. Wrong, and wrong.
Sirica is a hero of the far-left. C'mon, Renata. He's the judge who tried the Watergate perpetrators. Anybody who brings down a non-Communist is immediately a superstar in the eyes of the Times and all champions of communists. WTF? Look at what is happening to Woodward right now -- precisely the same thing. Woodward, a far-left hero, had the gall to criticize a communist, and now he's being ruthlessly attacked by the far-left. Seeing a child being eaten by its own parents is a sad thing.
Renata is being eaten by the leftist machine and doesn't even seem to know why. What's happening is a tragedy all around, but what Renata has done is far worse than anything the Times could ever do. It is never about informing the public with leftists, it is all about pushing communism and destroying anyone who stands in their way. MSNBC is a fairly good example. This is the "news" organization that labels people bigot whenever they speak against a communist. This is not news. This is pushing a far-left (i.e. communist) agenda.
I recommend that everyone read the Harper's article. The writing is clumsy, but it's entertaining.
