We have seen the future, and it sucks.

NYT’s Bari Weiss Doubles Down on False Tweet Congratulating U.S. Olympian as ‘Immigrant’ 261 Shares

New York Times Opinion editor and frequent guest on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Bari Weiss drew the ire of both the left and right Monday after she tried to score a political point using false information.

Weiss tweeted out praise for U.S. skater, Mirai Nagasu, who made history this week by becoming the first female U.S. Olympian to land a triple axel. Weiss congratulated Nagasu by touting, “immigrants get the job done.”

Problem is, Nagasu is not an immigrant–she was born and raised in California.

Apparently, like the proglodyte straw man of the ‘white supremacist’, she assumed that somebody with a non-vanilla-American name is necessarily an immigrant. Oops.

Weiss twisted herself into a pretzel trying to explain that by congratulating Nagasu as an “immigrant”, she was referring to her parent’s Japanese heritage.

Not sure how this differs from a person believing that any non-white ancestor makes somebody a Negro. (Can you say ‘racist’? I’m sure you won’t be allowed to.)

This goes to the heart of the proglodyte trope that ‘we’re all immigrants’. No, we’re not all immigrants.

I was born here; I am not an immigrant. My parents were born here; they are not immigrants. My grandparents were born here; they are not immigrants. I know of one great-grandparent who came from Ireland, but the other seven were not immigrants. The fact that almost all of my ancestors came from somewhere else at some point IS NOT PROOF that I am IN ANY WAY an ‘immigrant’, proglodyte fantasies to the contrary notwithstanding. This is the sort of perversion of the language that gives us ‘gay marriage’ and ‘gender identity’ and other attempts to corrupt thought by corrupting the language. Resist it, steadfast in the faith.
