They’ve Lost Rolling Stone! Editor Declares ‘American Left Has Lost Its Mind’… In a June 12 piece published online titled, “The American Press Is Destroying Itself,” Taibbi declares what conservatives and sane independents have known for some time now: The far-Left in America is nuts and worse…
If you’re a Leftist and you’ve lost Matt Taibbi, the editor of Rolling Stone magazine, a liberal icon publication for decades, then you’ve really screwed up.
In a June 12 piece published online titled, “The American Press Is Destroying Itself,” Taibbi declares what conservatives and sane independents have known for some time now: The far-Left in America is nuts and worse, hell-bent on destroying the country as it was founded.
After his customary bashing of President Donald Trump, Taibbi writes, “It feels liberating to say after years of tiptoeing around the fact, but the American left has lost its mind. It’s become a cowardly mob of upper-class social media addicts, Twitter Robespierres who move from discipline to discipline torching reputations and jobs with breathtaking casualness.”
All of which is true.
The leaders of this new movement are replacing traditional liberal beliefs about tolerance, free inquiry, and even racial harmony with ideas so toxic and unattractive that they eschew debate, moving straight to shaming, threats, and intimidation. They are counting on the guilt-ridden, self-flagellating nature of traditional American progressives, who will not stand up for themselves, and will walk to the Razor voluntarily.
They’ve conned organization after organization into empowering panels to search out thoughtcrime, and it’s established now that anything can be an offense, from a UCLA professor placed under investigation for reading Martin Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” out loud to a data scientist fired* from a research firm for — get this — retweeting an academic study suggesting nonviolent protests may be more politically effective than violent ones!
So, what has sparked Taibbi’s epiphany? Did he, like Tom Cruise’s character Jerry Maguire, have two slices of bad pizza, go to bed, and wake up with a conscience.
In fact, Taibbi’s lamenting of the lunatic far-Left comes only as the barbarians arrived at his gate.
The media lied about the Russia collusion hoax, about the Mueller probe, about impeachment, about the coronavirus—and now they’re lying about the riots.
