The New York Times Takes Another Shot at Orthodox Jews

Yet this is not the narrative captured by the New York Times, which this week took yet another shot at the Orthodox community in the U.S. For years, the Times has justified and even perpetuated antisemitism in the form of disdain for the most visibly Jewish Jews. Its latest effort is a documentary, “‘It’s Still an Emergency’: The Vulnerability of Queer Orthodox Jews.” The nine-minute video portrays Orthodox Jewry as a sad, solemn world, where life is bleak, everyone looks the same, and the culture is oh so primiti — I mean, “homophobic.” The opening music of the film recalls The Twilight Zone, and the victim of the community’s homophobia sits down in a dimly lit room as though he’s about to recall interrogations at Guantanamo Bay.
