New York Magazine reminds us the Left has LOST its mind

Once again, we are being reminded that the Left has lost its mind. If the Left were a person, it'd be a ranting homeless guy throwing rocks at buildings and ranting about capitalism and infinite genders. The latest proof of the Left's descent into instability is an article in New York Magazine by Eric Levitz. The craziness whacks you from the title: The Liberal Media Can Have Ideological Diversity Without Conservatives.

Of course, most logic-guided humans realize that this premise itself is, not just arrogant and prideful and snobby, but downright foolish. Sadly, this sort of anti-logic has become standard. And, here, New York Magazine has decided to double-down on the mechanisms that allow for an ideological echo chamber.

(Well at least they're finally admitting that the media has an overwhelming liberal bent.)

Here are some of the discussion topics that Levitz offers as samples of "ideologically divisive debates that center-left publications could host, if they redistributed some of the column inches away from movement conservatives and to democratic socialists."


Naturally, the list as consulted and bombastic as the rest of his rant.

  • Has the system of international trade that's governed the global economy over the past four decades been a force for good in the world? Or would many developing countries have achieved even more material progress — and political sovereignty — if they had pursued more nationalist and protectionist economic policies?
  • Is an adequate response to climate change compatible with the maintenance of capitalism as we've known it? Or is our choice between eco-socialism and barbarism?
  • Is the answer to the rise of Amazon, Walmart, Google, the big banks, and other monopoly economic players to return to more robust antitrust enforcement — or to embrace the economies of scale that these firms have produced, but nationalize them so that their immense power is brought under democratic control?
  • Is the Supreme Court a legitimate institution that must be protected, or is it an unaccountable, unelected legislature that abets reactionary interests?
  • Is the U.S. Constitution bad?
  • Should "do no harm" be the first principle of American foreign policy?
  • Should people be able to own ideas?
  • Should prisons be abolished?
  • Should workplaces be democracies?
  • Should we eat the rich (to save their souls)?"

Here's a question New York Magazine could ask themselves: What are they going to do about the glaring accusations of sexual abuse within their organization? It's one thing nobody in mainstream media has been talking about: New York Magazine's presence on the so-called "Sh*tty Men in Media List," a spreadsheet that women in the media had been passing around which included 70 men who have been accused of habitual sexual abuse.

So, when they post an article so smug and nasty as the one penned by Levitz, it's a little hard to take their Che Guevara rebellious stance seriously.

NY Magazine has provided safe harbor for three men on the list, whose digressions run the gambit, from "targets drunk women" to "emotionally abusive" to "gave a woman a black eye." Two of the men still work for the magazine, and one of them is their Culture editor. Obviously, the very nature of the list is contentious, and the accusations are just that: accusations. And revelations of sexual misconduct have shaken every industry, including the media. But the hypocrisy is still relevant. Something like throwing rocks in a glass house. That a news organization that prides itself on being so "woke" they don't need true ideological diversity.

So, when they post an article so smug and nasty as the one penned by Levitz, it's a little hard to take their Che Guevara rebellious stance seriously. Either way, with such snobby, self-important rhetoric, Levitz is one more revolutionary crafting the most brilliant recruitment campaign ever imagined, only he's inspiring conservatives and libertarians, who have grown disgusted with the Left.

Every time people see the madman chomping on rocks and spewing out nonsensical phrases, they realize that the person they once knew is gone. All we can do is maintain our own dignity, and let the ranting lunatic keep cursing and spitting.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
