NY Times on a roll: Wickedly sexist op-ed reduced AOC to a sex object ‘men are sickly obsessed’ with

 

In what proves to be a sexist position, the venerable New York Times has reduced shapely democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to little more than an object of desire in an op-ed intended to target Fox News.

The piece suggests that males who work at Fox News are mostly obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez because they see her as the girl they could never get in high school.

“The men at Fox News have a sickly obsession with AOC, partly because they resent her cleverness, charisma and moral vitality, but mostly because they suspect that in high school she was one of those girls they had no hope of getting a date with,” read a tweet from the N.Y. Times Opinion Twitter account.

The tweet may represent some serious projecting, betraying the lust someone on The Times Opinion staff has for the freshman Democrat from New York, a young, 29-year-old hard-left ideologue wrapped in a pretty package.

Either that, or it’s a clever campaign to distract from the Bronx Bolshevik’s extremist views on matters. Views widely seen on the right as destructive to the best interests of the nation, if not downright dangerous.

Reporters and pundits weighed in heavily:

The “hateful roll” Darby referenced includes this anti-Semitic cartoon from The New York Times News Service and Syndicate, which the paper was forced to delete.

Stopping short of an apology, The Times did acknowledge the image “was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it.”

Here’s a liberal sampling of other responses from Twitter:
