Bari Weiss’s resignation letter from the New York Times is certainly something. Give it a read.
I’ve seen a lot of different responses to Weiss’s resignation and the letter. Some people are on her side while some are saying she’s a hypocrite who supports cancel culture when she’s the one doing the cancelling. What I’ve noticed is that few people seem to be commenting on her accusation that the Times is, at the very least, unconcerned with anti-Semitism.
Open anti-Semitism is on the rise. It’s something that people don’t want to talk about but the evidence is all around. It’s currently the one bigotry that unites both the Right and the Left. For angry conspiracy theorists everywhere, the number one solution to all of life’s problems seems to be to blame the Jews. And yet, despite numerous physical attacks on Jews and despite several prominent people openly sharing anti-Semetic memes on social media, anti-Semitism is the hatred that few seem to be willing to call out.
Why is being anti-Semitic the only thing you apparently cannot get cancelled for?
