On Monday, New York Times writer Bari Weiss returned from her exile in Australia and appeared on the Joe Rogan Podcast (based in L.A.). During the interview, she denounced critics of Isreal (who she accused of being anti-Semitic in an op-ed published that same day) and defended the actions of a group of Catholic High School kids who treated an older Native American man with disrespect and shouted down strangers with chants of “MAGA”, “Build The Wall”, and possibly “slut.”
When Rogan brought up Tulsi Gabbard when talking about 2020 presidential candidates, Weiss childishly laughed and like a Mean Girl caricature said that Gabbard was “monstrous” but was unable to remember why, but said that she had read something negative previously about the congresswoman. Rogan had his producer search for criticisms of Gabbard (in order to help Weiss clarify her comments) and when they found a story that criticized Gabbard for supporting conversion therapy in the past, Weiss sheepishly said that was the reason why she was so critical of the congresswoman. She then googled to find a negative article about Gabbard and read it aloud on air.
Weiss’ seeming lack of needing facts (or in this case to remember them) to back her opinions is a common theme throughout her writings and interviews. Weiss wants to sell a narrative in which she is this centrist, rational, upper-west side member of the establishment who fights the scourge of unhinged PC critics. In reality, she’s a liar that hypocritically engages in and supports the very behavior that she so fervently denounces. Most notoriously, Weiss attacked college students for attempting to get professors fired for saying things they didn’t like, even though she, in fact, tried to do that very same thing as a college student.
Her deception is endless but I’ll leave it at that for now. I can’t spend another moment thinking about this awful human being. I hope she returns to Australia very, very soon.
