Thoughts On The NY Times Op Ed

It’s not exactly a secret that with you know who in the White House, this country is in chaos.

Yesterday, there was an op-ed printed in the NY Times. The writer, whose identity is unknown to the public, claims to be part of the resistance.

In the article, the writer makes the following statement:

To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.

But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.

While I admire this person for being bold enough to speak the truth, I have to wonder if the NY Times was the best paper to publish this piece. The Times and their editorial staff are among the list of media and journalistic outlets whom you know who has labelled as “the enemy of the people”.  It’s like the writer and the newspaper is preaching to the choir and not to those who silently disagree with you know who, but still openly support him.

My other concern is that there are enough voters in this country who honestly believe that most of the mainstream press is indeed lying and will likely not believe what the writer is saying.

Only time will tell if this op-ed is the one to bring you know who down or if it takes more than this article. Either way, if it opens a few eyes and a few minds that is all I ask for.
