‘It’s bad. It’s really bad’: The Atlantic is buried over article declaring the rosary a hate symbol

Among the sea of liberal media outlets that will print nearly anything if it means demonizing conservatives and their values, just how bad is The Atlantic? “Really bad,” says podcaster and Spectator contributing editor Stephen L. Miller, whose brutal Twitter thread ripped into the paper for an article claiming the rosary is now a hate symbol.

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad) Catholics,” The Atlantic’s Daniel Panneton wrote in an article that is so over-the-top and deeply insulting, it shocks the senses.

“On this extremist fringe, rosary beads have been woven into a conspiratorial politics and absolutist gun culture,” Panneton continued. “These armed radical traditionalists have taken up a spiritual notion that the rosary can be a weapon in the fight against evil and turned it into something dangerously literal.”

The article comes on the heels of another Atlantic hit piece, in which writer Kaitlyn Tiffany calls the militant pro-abortion activist group Jane’s Revenge “the Right’s new bogeyman.”

Tiffany notes that Jane’s Revenge “has now taken credit for incidents of vandalism and property destruction in 16 cities throughout the U.S., among them the firebombings of a pro-life medical office in Buffalo, New York, and the offices of a Christian-fundamentalist lobbying group in Madison, Wisconsin.”

“Two of its statements have emphasized: ‘We are not one group, but many,'” Tiffany writes. “But at this point nothing indicates that the authors of the anonymous blog posts have any real connection to the actions they cite.”

Naturally, the magazine promoted the article on Twitter.

“A pro-abortion-rights group called Jane’s Revenge is claiming credit for acts of vandalism throughout the U.S., reports@kait_tiffany, and right-wing activists and politicians are eating it up,” The Atlantic tweeted.

And that was the straw that apparently did Stephen Miller’s camel in.

“The Atlantic is bad,” he tweeted. “You should realize it’s bad. It’s really bad.”

“People writing for it should know it’s bad. It’s bad,” he stated. “It should be celebrated when it folds. National holiday.”

Miller attacked the hypocrisy of those “who quit Fox News” to write for The Atlantic.

“Sorry guys, you don’t get to lecture about why you quit Fox News over dangerous opinions and then go contribute to an outlet that declares the rosary a hate symbol and also actually why are you so mad about fire bombing pregnancy centers?” he stated.

“An NBC MTP contributor suggested executing a former president and you didn’t walk out out over it,” he continued, referring to a comment made by NBC News political analyst and the editor/CEO of The Dispatch, Stephen Hayes. “Here is the Atlantic calling the rosary a hate symbol and fire bombing pregnancy clinics just great, do you guys see your f***ing problem yet? Do you get it?”

“It’s fine if you left Fox over this kind of stuff,” Miller told Hayes. “But now you’ve swallowed your tongue over colleagues like Bechloss and Joy Reid or Andrea Mitchell.”

“This is how you lost the party,” Miller stated. “This.”

“Anyway,” he concluded, “hoping for your principled resignation at NBC and David’s at The Atlantic over this *or* an explanation as to why not.”

The rant struck a note with many who are sad to see what the magazine, which printed its first issue back in 1857, has become.

“What happened to The Atlantic?” asked one user. “Truly, we should all be sad to see such a great American institution descend to just another partisan broadsheet.”
