Sen. Tom Cotton on NYT Op-Ed Controversy: ‘It Turned into Something Like a Struggle Session from the Cultural Revolution in China’

‘This all goes back to the publisher and his unwillingness to stand up to a bunch of 20 and 30-year-olds’


COTTON: “More National Guard was called in through Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, last week and that was not necessary but the new York Times asked me to explain in further detail that exact point I made and the publisher defend that decision to publish that column after it was publish Ed and the mob and their news room began to demand it be taken down and there will be consequences and within a day it turned into something like a struggle session from the cultural revolution in China where the adults had to apologize for those who apparently run the New York Times news room and now the opinion page editor had to resign so let’s be clear this all goes back to the publisher and his unwillingness to stand up to a bunch of 20 and 30-year-olds who were raised on social justice seminars on our campuses. They need to behave like grown- ups not like children, who are confronted with an opinion that they don’t like.“
