In a classic guilt-by-association move, a New York Times columnist equates goals to be a housewife and mother to racism.

Racists want to have lots of children so that proves that any white woman who wants to be a housewife and have lots of children must be a white supremacist.

That’s the kind of juvenile reasoning you get the deep state PR firm calling itself the New York Times.

Over the past few years, dozens of YouTube and social media accounts have sprung up showcasing soft-spoken young white women who extol the virtues of staying at home, submitting to male leadership and bearing lots of children — being “traditional wives.” These accounts pepper their messages with scrapbook-style collections of 1950s advertising images showing glamorous mothers in lipstick and heels with happy families and beautiful, opulent homes. They give their videos titles like “Female Nature and Advice for Young Ladies,” “How I Homeschool” and “You Might be a Millennial Housewife If….”
