LA Times Goes Full Racist Against Larry Elder

It is rare to see journalistic malpractice at this level be so blatant and obvious. Clearly, the Los Angeles Times feels they have no need to hide their racism.

The LA Times is quite clearly in the tank for Governor Gavin Newsom in the California recall. I don’t think anyone is surprised by that. What is deeply ugly, and yes, shocking, is their open racism against Larry Elder. Elder’s crime, of course, is being conservative while black. This means that the LA Times can publish editorials about him being the “black face of white supremacy” and ignore an attack that would have been front-page news against a black Democrat.

The LA Times gave it a short article, but not nearly the attention it would have been for a Democrat, and we all know that.

Elder — who had arrived in his new “Recall Express” campaign bus shortly after casting his ballot at a voting center across town — spent roughly 12 minutes in the neighborhood, with his departure hastened by what appeared to be an egg thrown in his direction.”

“It kind of glanced his head,” an Elder campaign staffer said of the object.”

A woman in a gorilla mask riding a bicycle threw the small white object past Elder’s head, as seen in a video posted on Twitter by Spectrum News reporter Kate Cagle. Moments later, the woman took a swing at a man who appeared to be part of Elder’s team. The man was hit by at least one other heckler just before Elder was escorted into the Suburban.”

Swap out the name Larry Elder with Barack Obama, and the media would absolutely go nuclear. The meltdowns from one coast to another would be EXTREME. But really, it wouldn’t even have to be a national name like Obama. Take any black Democrat at the local level and substitute it in. This is the same media that blew the Covington Catholic non-story into a “hate crime” of such mammoth proportions that they ended up settling with Nicholas Sandmann out of court.

The LAPD is now investigating the egg assault, which led to another LA Times article. This time, the piece acknowledges the gorilla mask as a “racist trope.”

No charges have yet been filed, but the department’s Robbery-Homicide Division is looking into the incident, according to LAPD Officer Lizeth Lomeli. Lomeli said the case had been assigned to that unit “because it’s high-profile.”

A woman in a gorilla mask riding a bicycle threw the small white object past Elder’s head, as seen in a video posted on Twitter by Spectrum News reporter Kate Cagle.”

The woman appeared to be white, Elder is Black. Ape characterizations have been used as a racist trope for centuries.”

The article itself, as written, is fine. The problem lies with the way the editors of the LA Times decided to headline the story – and the photo they used.

This is not an accident. This is intentional. That picture was used both on Twitter AND on the LA Times website. After leaving it up for almost a day, the photo was then changed.

However, the internet never forgets. The article with the first photo can be seen here, and the second updated article can be seen here.

Honest people can see this headline and photo for what it is, along with the underplaying of an assault that would have been front page news if it had happened to a Democrat instead of a Republican. However, those honest people clearly don’t have jobs at the LA Times. Larry Elder might not win the election next week, and that will be California’s loss. But the LA Times has clearly picked sides and decided that racism that furthers their goals is perfectly okay, and then they wonder why they keep losing subscribers. But the LA Times should be applauded for being honest about their racism. What’s left of their subscribers know exactly what they are paying for.

    The most disturbing thing about the LA Times is that it is so complicit in the division that is prevalent today. I, sadly, don’t see a way back from this disunity. The media has been hijacked, our education system has been hijacked, the government has gone full communist, social media is censoring conservative talk and yet we are the majority. Now I read that goDaddy has jumped on board with Facebook and Twitter and shut down an abortion tracking website in Texas because it didn’t like the content. A MSNBC guest suggests that those who haven’t gotten the vaccine should be shot by drones and a CNN guest ‘doctor’ wants the government to stop interstate travel for those not vaccinated. Guess he isn’t to up to date on OUR Constitution and not once did either host challenge them on it. So violence and censorship against anything conservative is OK and we’re supposed to sit back, take it and say there’s nothing we do about it. To say there is nothing that can be done dooms the future for our grandchildren because they will not ever know the freedoms we lost and they’ll never know.

It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t explicitly say white people because he doesn’t have to. First, because anti-white racism permeates the Leftwing glitterati and, second, because white is now the pejorative lobbed against anyone of any melanin level who is not sufficiently Woke. […]
