Not since the unbelievably moronic statement of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) that “some people did something” has there been a more tone-deaf statement regarding the Islamist terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, The New York Times very openly and quite plainly stated;
“18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died.”
Psst… the number killed was actually closer to 3,000 (2,606 in New York City; 2,996 nation-wide).
It’s beyond me why The NY Times would purposefully downplay the number of dead at the hands of Islamo-Terrorists (sarcasm off).
But before you actually start believing that Skynet is now self-aware and airplanes now make decisions of their own volition, rest easy.
Much like Ilhan Omar, The New York Times is simply full of shite.
Please keep in mind that the slogan of The Times is “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”
With that aside, before the tweet was deleted by The Times, conservative stalwart Dinesh D’Souza ensured that said tweet was saved in perpetuity;
In this now-deleted tweet, the New York Times attempts to blame 9/11 on the AIRPLANES that “took aim” and “brought down” the World Trade Center. What lengths they will go to to divert attention from who actually did this! pic.twitter.com/gIpyKLlkYa
