NPR has not run a piece critical of Democrats since Christ was a boy. Moreover, much like the New York Times editorial page (but somehow worse), the public news leader’s monomaniacal focus on “race and sexuality issues” has become an industry in-joke. For at least a year especially, listening to NPR has been like being pinned in wrestling beyond the three-count. Everything is about race or gender, and you can’t make it stop.Conservatives have always hated NPR, but in the last year I hear more and more politically progressive people, in the media, talking about the station as a kind of mass torture experiment, one that makes the most patient and sensible people want to drive off the road in anguish.
This article was a hoot but the real gold is in the comments. Dozens of people who say they once listened to NPR now say they simply can't stand the relentless woke-ness. This was my favorite:
When NPR is on I play a game: see how long it can go before it mentions race, gender, and oppression thereof. I've clocked them at about 15 seconds.
When I left work today, I played the NPR Game. The first story to come up was about problems in foster care and - bang! - any problems in foster care are worse for blacks and people of color. Right there in the introduction.
