‘Time’ ripped to shreds for skipping frontline workers, goes pathetically political for ‘Person of the Year’


While it’s difficult to think that anything shaped the world around us more in 2020 than the pandemic, which even impacted the outcome of the presidential election in the eyes of many — mail-in ballots — the liberal folks at Time magazine saw things differently.

In selecting their annual “Person of the Year,” Time opted for one of the likely effects of the Chinese plague, this being the relevance of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who were purportedly elected as the next president and vice president.

A selection that almost certainly hinged on the skin color of one of the Democrats, and we are not talking about Biden and his blond leg hairs. A pathetically-predictable selection that comes at the expense of frontline workers.

And while Time ignored these heroes, Fox News host Charles Payne took the time to thank them nonetheless, saying they deserved to be “Person of the Year.”

Frontline workers didn’t even make the cut to be included among Time’s final four possibilities.

President Trump was one of the four, as was Biden, who’s still sharp enough to know that selecting a person of color as a running mate gave him instant credibility among the left.

Media favorite Dr. Anthony Fauci, the attention-loving infectious disease expert, was in the top four, as were those calling for racial justice following the death of George Floyd — this being Black Lives Matter and Co. You know, those who burned, looted, and destroyed American cities over the death of a man who may very well have died from an overdose of Fentanyl.

As a consolation prize of sorts, Time did award Dr. Fauci and frontline health care workers their “Guardians of the Year.”

There was a helluva contradiction over the “Person of the Year” selection that the magazine looked past.

The Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy drew attention to the inconvenience:

Aside from frontline workers, Time could have selected those who have lost so much due to the pandemic, or sacrificed for the benefit of others.

A category that doesn’t include politicians who continued to receive often exorbitant taxpayer-funded salaries while they shut down hundreds of thousands of businesses, eliminating the livelihoods of so many Americans — people losing everything they worked their entire lives to build while Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi play politics at their expense.

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:
