NYT Editorial Board Member Says She Was ‘Disturbed’ by the Number of American Flags She Saw on Long Island

By author Elizabeth Vaughn


Apparently, the shows of patriotism and support for former President Donald Trump witnessed by The New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay on a weekend trip to Long Island were a little more than she could bear.

In a Tuesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Gay told the panel she was disturbed. “Really disturbed.”


The topic was an op-ed written by The Washington Post’s Max Boot entitled “Too many people are still underestimating the Trump Threat.”


“You know, it’s really concerning to me that the Democrats haven’t just gone ahead at this point and said, ‘We’re doing this on our own’ in terms of getting a commission together to explain to the American people how we allowed the insurrection to take place in the Capitol. I think that really needs to move forward swiftly,” Gay explained.


“The reality is here is that we have a large percentage of the American population, I don’t know how big it is, but we have tens of millions of Trump voters who continue to believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by the simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others. I think as long as they see Americanness the same as one with whiteness, this is going to continue.”


“We have to figure out how to get every American a place at the table in this democracy, but how to separate Americanness, America, from whiteness. Until we can confront that and talk about that, this is really going to continue,” she cautioned.

  1. Why does anyone give an editor from the NYT any credence? This clown was probably leading the torch procession against Bari Weiss.

  2. It’s truly unfortunate the amount of brain power that’s wasted because parents didn’t pay attention to how their children were being trained to hate this country instead of growing up and supporting themselves and their country. The American flag stands for every American and no one is above another here and to see each other in terms of color or race is ludicrous.

  3. One more in the never-ending stream of pseudo intellectual blaqs, willingly serving the cause of Marxism as a “useful idiot”.

    Lord, save us from this plague.
