Tom Cotton applauded The New York Times today for running his controversial op-ed that called for “an overwhelming show of force” from federal troops to quell racial unrest in American cities

"I will commend The New York Times leadership," Cotton told Fox News. "You know we obviously don't agree on very much, but in this case they ran my opinion piece, with which they disagreed, and they've stood up to the woke progressive mob in their own newsroom."

Addressing the backlash on Fox News on Thursday morning, Cotton said the reaction to the op-ed revealed what he said was the hypocrisy of progressives that claim to defend liberal values. “We understand that many readers find Senator Cotton's argument painful, even dangerous,” Bennet wrote. “We believe that is one reason it requires public scrutiny and debate.”

Overwhelming show of force

Tommy go back to Arkansas and sit on the couch you set out on your porch five years ago yeah damn hillbilly.

Trump wannabe.

We don't need any help

Who wrote this headline? What’s going on isn’t protests re: racial unrest. The protests are about police brutality. Is Politico afraid to say that?

and in breach of the Constitution

The NY Times published his op-ed because they wanted to show the world how proud Arkansas must be for sending this fascist cretin to the Senate.

This pricks got to go!

Surprised he had enough time to write it while riding Trumps mushroom 24 hours a day

Digging his own grave.

Would you run an Op Ed if it argued in favor of violence and force against Tom Cotton?

Yes. Being aware and forward thinking must be terrible!

Cotton’s thirst to run for the Presidency in 2024 is so unabashedly obvious.

what a doofus 🤣🤣😂😂😂🤣 they published it to show the world what a LOSER he is. 😂😂😂😂changed minds by op-ed: NONE

Never forget the New York Times was complicit (Editorially) in fermenting the removal of the Democratically elected leader of Iran.

TDS is subsiding and NYT needs new subscribers.

BREAKING: Tom Cotton is despicable and the NYT has been laundering death mongering since Judith Miller

Op-Ed. Opposing Editorial. Would those protesting the NYT decision be as up in arms if AOC had an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal? Listen to the other side. Then make a decision on your position. But, always listen to what the 'other side' says first.

SO the NYTimes posted his op-ed 'cuz they wanted the whole world to know what a total a$$hat Sen Tom Cotton is? Figures Cotton would think that's a good thing.

Wait, I thought the NYT was 'fake news?' Oh, right. It's only fake when you disagree, right TomCottonAR? So sick of GOP bullshit.

Does Senator Neidermeyer own any other ties?

Men who are not weak can face any foe

This isn't racial unrest. This is a group of terrorists hijacking the social unrest. You either know that and are complicit or you are complete fools.


Well, the Times had to show how fucked-up the right wing truly is. Only way to do that is to let them hang themselves with their own words.
