We probably all agree on the worthlessness of the New York Times. For starters, it publishes propaganda it barely bothers to disguise as news, relentlessly pushing its various agendas from a totalitarian State to sodomy as “marriage.” Its style and conventions are hidebound and stodgy. And despite the worldwide failure of the Big Government it has promoted for decades as well as its own slide into irrelevance and bankruptcy, it remains disgustingly enamored with itself.
So when one of its columnists titles his vaporing, “Knuckleheads and Worse, Bringing Guns in Carry-ons,” we merely roll our eyes as we marvel at the economy: in little more than 900 words, the Slimes not only endorses the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as passengers’ protectors rather than predators, it also attacks for the umpteenth time our inalienable right to arm ourselves.
The inspiration for this drivel came from John Pistole, Czar at the TSA, and a statistic he recently expelled: “Every day, screening officers [sic for ‘deviants and busybodies’] find four to five guns in carry-on bags at American airports…” he alleged. And all without even the thought of a warrant, though of course the Slimes doesn’t consider that little factoid worthy of mention.
Pistole’s stat is likely wrong but naturally, the Slimes swallows everything he says: its editors lack even rudimentary skepticism of an “expert” the State employs. Should a politician or bureaucrat observe that the sky is green with pink polka-dots, the Slimes would duly print it without so much as a glance upward. Such exalted critters as Leviathan’s lackeys never lie nor mistake their facts.
