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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
