NEW YORK TIMES Hires, Swiftly Fires Journalist for Homophobic, Racist, Nazi-Supporting Tweets

The New York Times editorial board has dropped their most recent hire after a series of tweets were discovered in which she appeared to support Nazis and used racial slurs.

As the Daily Beast reports, the Times invited Quinn Norton to join their editorial board just long enough to write-up her pink slip.

The turnaround for the tech writer came after the Times was scared off their hot new prospect in with the discovery of a more than liberal use of gay slurs and n-bombs.

A former writer for far-left sites like the Daily Beast and Medium, Norton was announced on Tuesday as the Times editorial board’s “lead opinion writer on the power, culture and consequences of technology.”

It was that “consequence of technology” that came at Norton very quickly. 

Within hours the Times realized they got more than they bargained for as Norton’s back log of tweets began to resurface. The quick tempered technology writer dabbled with the boundaries of context using words like “nigger,” “fag,” and faggot” against agitators on social media.

“Srsly, did you just do that after having the discussion about rape culture with me? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME YOU IDOT FAGGOT?”  Norton once asked on Twitter.

In support of Obama, Norton mused, “If God had meant a nigger to talk to our school children, He would have made him president. Oh, but wait..Um.” 

The brazen technology guru failed to delete the questionable exchanges, in a cruel twist of irony.

The Times decided this was not an effective way for an editorial board member to communicate.

In addition to unkind words, the former Times editorial board member-for-day proudly declared she was friends with neo-Nazis in a string of tweets in October 2014.

“I have been friends with various neo-Nazis in my time,” she tweeted. “I have never agreed with them, and I’ve been clear on that.”

The previous year, Norton also self-published an essay about John Rabe, a German businessman and member of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party, where she described Rabe as a “humanitarian” and urged readers to uncover the “moral complexity” of the Nazis.

After an investigation, the Grey Lady announced in a statement it was “very concerned” about their new board member’s Twitter activity.

Not long after, Norton announced her untimely departure from the Times. She had held the position for less than 24 hours. 

“I’m sorry I can’t do the work I wanted to do with them. I wish there had been a way, but ultimately, they need to feel safe with how the net will react to their opinion writers,” Norton wrote.

“I only used it in the context of my work with anons. I used it occasionally when amongst gay friends in our community.” She went on, “I’ve been a queer activist since 1992. But when I speak to communities, I used their language to do it”

 Times’statement about the firing explained, “Despite our review of Quinn Norton’s work and our conversations with her previous employers, this was new information to us. Based on it, we’ve decided to go our separate ways.”

Perhaps Quinn Norton put it best when she tweeted,

“Here’s the deal, faggot: Free speech comes with responsibility. Not legal, but human. Grow up. You can do this.”

From the mouths of babes.

    With all due respect, it’s self-evident to anyone who reads the linked tweet that all Quinn did was to retweet a snark by the late John Perry Barlow, which contained the n-word remark. And unless you are willing to believe that Barlow was a racist, there’s nothing to see here against him, either. Just a JOKE.

    So once again, the SJWs at the Times have fucked up. They should rename their paper the Divided-By.

    I mean to be fair, to call her a nazi,homophobe,racist etc just because she used certain words is the left’s game. Can’t stoop to their level. Granted this just makes them look bad for hiring someone whom if their political view were the opposite they would have been calling them all those names.

    This article makes it sound as though the author is applauding the decision to terminate Ms. Norton, who sounds like she might have actually brought some fresh perspectives to the paper. It’s one thing to deride the NYT for inadvertently hiring someone whose views lie outside their narrow worldview; but crapping on someone for using provocative language and their willingness to befriend someone while disagreeing with them is the left’s job. The author could have done a better job covering this story; like providing some context for Norton’s essay on John Rabe, also known as the Oskar Schindler of Nanking.
