From the New York Times Op Ed page:
To resist, the disempowered should reject insult and mockery, not return it.
Where to even start with this nonsense? People interested in resisting El Trumpo and his sordid collection of sex assaulters and libertarian fucknuts should look at strategies that are effective and not judge them solely on how pretty and not pretty they may be.
When kids are being bullied do they get far by asking the bully to not do it? Nope.
You may not like it but sometimes you have to fight whether you want to or not. Just ask Hillary Clinton how rising above the insults worked out.
The New York Times should keep this advice to itself.
