The New York Times is now actively recruiting antisemites. It’s gone completely off the rails.

Tom Wright-Piersanti, the Times’s politics editor for more than five years, woke up this morning to find himself at the center of a growing political controversy.

A New York Times political editor has a years-long history of antisemitic and racist comments on his Twitter page, a Breitbart News investigation has found.
Tom Wright-Piersanti, who has been a Senior Staff Editor at the New York Times for more than five years according to his LinkedIn page and according to his Twitter page oversees the newspaper’s political coverage, has made a series of antisemitic and racist tweets over the years. Many of them are still public on his Twitter page as of the publication of this article, but some have since been deleted. …

One tweet that is still public is from the early morning of New Years Day in 2010, when he admits he is antisemitic but announced that his New Years resolution was to be less antisemitic—even though the tweet’s content mocks Jewish people.
“I was going to say ‘Crappy Jew Year,’ but one of my resolutions is to be less anti-Semitic,” Wright-Piersanti tweeted on Jan. 1, 2010, at 9:35 a.m. “So…. HAPPY Jew Year. You Jews.”
Another one from the evening of Dec. 15, 2009, includes a photograph of a vehicle with what looks like a Menorah–culturally and religiously associated with the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah–on the roof. Wright-Piersanti commented: “Who called the Jew-police?” …
The revelation that a politics editor in the Times newsroom—who has spent years there working on countless stories—has had this antisemitic content on his Twitter feed, still publicly available, for all the years he has worked there and for several years prior to the Times hiring him comes amid a raft of other problems with antisemitism from the left and from the Times in particular. It also comes as the Times’ editorial board lectured the president on antisemitism in an editorial published Wednesday evening. …
Since Breitbart broke the story, it appears Wright-Piersanti has deleted the infamous tweets.
More anti-Semitism, NYT? Yesterday, they falsely labeled @realDonaldTrump an anti-Semite. Today, it's revealed that one of their editors has a long history of anti-Semitic tweets. Maybe this explains why they’re always defending Omar & Tlaib?

But wait, there’s more!
Antisemitic content is not the only racially insensitive content that Wright-Piersanti has published on his Twitter feed. Wright-Piersanti also sent out a racially insensitive tweet on May 18, 2010, that he has since deleted from his Twitter feed: “With asian babies, is it racist to say to the parents, ‘Aw, he looks just like you!’? What if you say it before you see any pictures?”
Wright-Piersanti also sent out a number of messages about Indian people as well, bashing them repeatedly over a number of years.
On Dec. 8, 2009, he tweeted at 10:39 a.m.: “There are four indian guys with mohawks in this one class, and each one is a douche in his own awful way. I hate mohawk Indians.”

Moments later, he further clarified his specific racial hatred as those from India, not Native Americans: “I don’t hate Mohawk Indians, though. I love those guys. I just hate Indians with mohawks. Different indians, different mohawks.”

Over the course of a three-year period he sent out several more tweets about Indian people. On Dec. 16, 2009, he tweeted: “Mohawked Indian Guess employee to @snitkin: ‘Yo, you like these watches? I sell ‘em under the table, if you know what I mean.’”
