NY Times comes up with another flag incident to aid Dem attack on Alito

The New York Times is once again making a fuss over Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s dissenting opinions.

The Times previously threw a conniption after Alito’s neighbors told them he’d flown an inverted flag outside his home in the days after the Jan. 6th riot.

Alito subsequently claimed his wife had flown the flag “in response to a neighbor’s use of objectionable and personally insulting language on yard signs,” but the Times still ran a story about it anyway.

The Times was mad because an inverted flag was also a symbol used by former President Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” protesters — and everybody knows how the Times feels about Trump and his supporters.

Weeks later, the Times is out with a new hit piece accusing Alito of flying the Pine Tree Flag, also known as the Appeal to Heaven Flag, outside his New Jersey vacation home in 2023.

“Also known as the Pine Tree flag, it dates back to the Revolutionary War, but largely fell into obscurity until recent years and is now a symbol of support for former President Donald J. Trump, for a religious strand of the ‘Stop the Steal’ campaign and for a push to remake American government in Christian terms,” the Times complains.

Uh huh …

But critics say this is BS, and that the flag is nothing more than “a famous historic flag commissioned by George Washington.”

They’re right.

“The Appeal to Heaven flag was designed by Colonel Joseph Reed, who served as the personal secretary to George Washington,” according to AmericanFlags.com. “Originally commissioned for use on six military cruiser ships, the flag was adopted on October 21, 1775. It became the official Massachusetts navy flag in 1776.”

“Washington’s secretary chose a simple yet impactful design featuring a singular pine tree, a symbol of strength and resiliency within the New England states. The words ‘An Appeal to Heaven’ stretch atop a white field, boldly proclaiming an appeal to God to save the colonists from the King’s oppressive ruling,” the report continues.

Is it therefore any surprise that the Times, a paper that’s sycophantic toward oppressive Democrat President Joe Biden, hates the flag?

How does the Times even know the latest claim is true? Via neighbors once again.

“Three photographs obtained by The New York Times, along with accounts from a half-dozen neighbors and passers-by, show that the Appeal to Heaven flag was aloft at the Alito home on Long Beach Island in July and September of 2023,” the Times’ report reads. “A Google Street View image from late August also shows the flag.”

“The photographs, each taken independently, are from four different dates. It is not clear whether the flag was displayed continuously during those months or how long it was flown overall,” it continues.

Just like last time, the left is losing its collective mind, arguing that Alito needs to be impeached and removed from office.

Case in point:

Remember, these unhinged, maniacal leftist lunatics think Alito is the one in a cult …

That said, one must wonder how these folks reacted when their hero, the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, trash-talked then-President Donald Trump. Wasn’t that also a violation of the Supreme Court’s ethics requirements?

How did the Times for its part respond to her trash-talking? By just casually reporting it without any criticism. Typical …
