Crenshaw Calls Out NY Times For Its America-Hating Ways

Share

America is the greatest nation on earth.

Such a statement wasn’t controversial that many years ago.

But these are different days. The left has abandoned a fundamental premise that America’s greatness can bring us together. Instead, in an effort to insult and degrade any words that could be associated with Donald Trump, the president’s detractors now proudly wear the badge of deniers of American greatness.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo stated last year that America was “never that great.”

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg claimed that America “was never as great as advertised.”

Eric Holder, former President Barack Obama’s Attorney General, questioned the notion of American greatness when he rhetorically asked, “Exactly when did you think America was great?”

“It takes us back to what I think, an American past that never in fact really existed. This notion of greatness,” Holder continued.

And right before the 4th of July, The New York Times ran a piece entitled “Please Stop Telling Me America is Great.”

So it is that on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, a day to reflect on American ingenuity, creativity and courage, The New York Times tweeted an article with the caption, “America may have put the first man on the moon, but the Soviet Union sent the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the U.S. would follow suit.”

It’s almost as if the left and its favorite rag, The New York Times, doesn’t want people to celebrate the greatness and goodness of America.

I know your kid isn’t perfect, but I don’t show up at his birthday party and talk about how he pulled little Suzie’s hair. That would make me a jerk and deserving of a punch in the mouth.

Do you think newspapers like The New York Times fail to appreciate America's greatness?

Yet that’s exactly what patriots across the country are feeling when they see America insulted, maligned, undercut, “fundamentally transformed,” shamed and apologized for.

Few understand the greatness of America better than Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

The Texas lawmaker took notice of The Times’ tweet and responded perfectly.

“Why is it that every time something has the potential to bring us together — in this case the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 — leftists media outlets do their best to undermine the notion that Americans should be proud of their country?” Crenshaw asked.

This is leadership at its core. Crenshaw acknowledged the Apollo anniversary is a time, an event, that can bring us together. But the Gray Lady takes the opportunity to throw a shadow on an epic win for our nation.

If you think Crenshaw’s message was well-received by America-loving patriots, you would be right. In barely over an hour, his tweet had been liked nearly 10,000 times.

When the left’s strategy to get attention is to downplay the greatness of the country, one has to wonder what their hopes are for our future.

G.S. Hair is the former executive editor of The Western Journal and vice president of digital content of Liftable Media.

After graduating law school from the Cecil C. Humphries School of Law, Mr. Hair spent a decade as an attorney practicing at the trial and appellate level in Arkansas and Tennessee. He represented clients in civil litigation, contractual disputes, criminal defense and domestic matters. He spent a significant amount of time representing indigent clients who could not afford private counsel in civil or criminal matters. A desire for justice and fairness was a driving force in Mr. Hair's philosophy of representation. Inspired by Christ’s role as an advocate on our behalf before God, he often represented clients who had no one else to fight on their behalf.

Mr. Hair has been a consultant for Republican political candidates and has crafted grassroots campaign strategies to help mobilize voters in staunchly Democrat regions of the Eastern United States.

In early 2015, he began writing for Conservative Tribune. After the site was acquired by Liftable Media, he shut down his law practice, moved to Arizona and transitioned into the position of site director. He then transitioned to vice president of content. In 2018, after Liftable Media folded all its brands into The Western Journal, he was named executive editor. His mission is to advance conservative principles and be a positive and truthful voice in the media.
