As Twitchy reported, Queen Elizabeth passed away Thursday at the age of 96. For lefty Twitter, it’s a chance to trash the queen for being a colonizer. We’re actually very saddened by the news: Anyone under age 70 doesn’t know of a time when she wasn’t Queen of England.

Newspapers usually have obituaries ready to go, with only the date to be filled in. The New York Times went a step further and had an opinion piece trashing the queen ready to go, written by a Harvard professor no less. To be more accurate, we should say that Maya Jasanoff trashed the British Empire, not the queen … go ahead and mourn the person, but don’t mourn for the era.

Yeah, read the room and shut up.

Jasanoff is complaining about the bloody history of decolonization.

This was totally predictable, and yet we’re still shocked. Seriously, couldn’t they have waited one day before the hit pieces?
