New York Times finds new group to blame for the coronavirus: Conservative Christians

Just when you thought the mainstream media couldn’t stoop any lower, they do. In what appears to be a desperate move to distance blame for COVID-19 from China, The New York Times just released a ridiculous op-ed where they’re now blaming Christian conservatives for the virus.


And now this trope has bubbled to the very top, to the opinion pages of the New York Times.

“The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals,” a New York Times article tells us in the headline.

The piece is by Katherine Stewart, an author whose recent book fits in a broad category of paranoid literature that is basically the Left’s version of the “Sharia law is coming” conspiracy theory. Hers is about the 1000th book in the past 20 years to warn that America is about to become a theocracy.

“Trump’s response to the pandemic has been haunted by the science denialism of his ultraconservative religious allies,” the subheadline reads.

“Science Denialism!”

“Ultraconservative religious!”

Perfect catchphrases!

But the giveaway is the weasel phrase there: “haunted by.” She’s trying to imply causality that she knows she cannot assert.

The media just loves throwing Christians and conservatives under the bus whenever it’s convenient for them. But, of course, they’ll fight to defend China, the country that gave us the coronavirus and all the global spoils it inflicted..
