The New York Times ignited outrage Wednesday — the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks — after seemingly blame-shifting responsibility for the attacks from Al Qaeda terrorists to the airplanes.
The Times was universally condemned and mocked for writing that "planes took aim" when, in reality, Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked airplanes filled with hundreds of innocent people to weaponize them in an effort to topple the World Trade Center's Twin Towers.
"Fortunately, journalists rallied to make sure sentient airplanes would be less likely to kill ever again," one person said.
"The New York Times is so woke they say 'airplanes' targeted the World Trade Centers - as opposed to Muslim extremists. Appalling, especially on the 18th anniversary of 9/11," another person responded.
"This newspaper is garbage," radio host Larry O'Connor responded.
"Man, those towers really must have done something to upset those airplanes," one person mocked. "And 18 years later, we still somehow allow airplanes to be legal. Let that sink in," another mocked.

Good. The dumber they make democrats look, the better America gets.
I know a person who lost a family member on 9/11. You are not a very good person. If Republicans are so great why didn't the military protect us on 9/11 ?????
