IN the wake of the New York Times debacle with the Tom Cotton op-ed, now they’re literally telling people to be emotional extortionists:
Today, The New York Times ran an op-ed telling people to withhold affection from their relatives unless they protest or give money to anti-racism organizations.
Where does this end? I want racial equality, but I utterly disdain any person or institution endorsing such tactics. pic.twitter.com/vVTnKq75mo

Ugh. So stupid. This is the worst aspect of liberalism, it has to politicize everything. You can’t have family members or friends unless they agree with you 100%, and now that’s not enough, now they have to donate their money or you can cut them out of your life. Pathetic.
this @nytimes oped instructs us to excommunicate "loved ones" until they've attended a protest, or paid cash to author-approved causes.
So grandparents need to risk COVID19 at a protest or pay up, or no grandkids
How did antiracism get so creepy & cultishhttps://t.co/ppJuOK69ue pic.twitter.com/Lbcj1mhD1A

Part of a @nytimes op-ed today by Chad Sanders. "Texts: To your relatives and loved ones telling them you will not be visiting them or answering phone calls until they take significant action in supporting black lives either through protest or financial contributions." LUNACY!

I’m glad my friends and family aren’t this stupid. If they know me well enough they know I don’t play these idiotic emotional games….
