NY Times Conveniently Decides Protests Are Now Patriotic Again.

Not very long ago, the NY Times Opinion page was chock full of how protesting against the government was dangerous, un-American, and downright unpatriotic if not unconstitutional (yes, really).

Anti-Lockdown Rebels Don’t Get to Choose Their Own Constitution


The Anti-Lockdown Protesters Have a Twisted Conception of Liberty

In short, protests against the government according to the NY Times was bad, and racist too.

It had been so written.

But now - Hooray! Protests are Patriotic once again!

New York Times: In America, Protest Is Patriotic.

The NY York Times, it be a changin'.

So protests with looting and arson in the name of a politically favorable cause = good.

Peaceful protests against arbitrary and capricious lockdown decisions, with no violence, looting, vandalism, or rioting, not to mention leaving the protest grounds cleaner than how the anti-lockdown protstors found them = bad.

Got it.
