Florida Rep. Byron Donalds blasted The New York Times as a “political arm of the Democratic Party” after an op-ed claimed the “American Dream” is being distorted by Republicans of color. On Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends,” Donalds said the publication uses dog-whistle phrases without considering that its own agenda is failing Americans.
NEW YORK TIMES CREATES ‘RIGHT-WIGHT MEDIA’ BATTLE TO SEE WHAT DRIVES POLITICAL DECISIONS OF ‘MANY AMERICANS’
REP. BYRON DONALDS: This is so typical of the New York Times. They don’t take the time to look at their own agenda, something they’ve supported for years, and realize it’s failing the American people, let alone black or Latino people in America. … They want to do what the New York Times always does and what the Democrats always do, which is dog whistle. They throw out these dog-whistle phrases, trying to scare voters into thinking that Republicans are part of some nefarious plot. But the truth is that The New York Times is nothing more than the political arm of the Democratic Party. And I’m sick of it. Voters are sick of it. Let’s see through this. This is nonsense. The American Dream is alive and well if you have the right public policies to support it. This is where low taxes, a low regulatory environment, actually securing the border and having sound money are important. This is what Republicans stand for. The New York Times doesn’t care about that. So they come out with stupid articles like this, which everyone sees as pure Democrat dog whistle politics.
