Welcome to the “Lunacy on the Left” column, where Liberty Nation highlights the published comments and arguments made from the left-wing point of view on the issues of the day. Each week, we will showcase the opinions of the leftist establishment media outlets, Democratic politicians, and other prominent figures on the left. In short, we wade through the morass of leftist lunacy, so you don’t have to.
In the most recent episode of Leftist Lunacy, progressives blessed the nation with more displays of their odd and sometimes funny behavior. In this installment, the left offers their bodies for the Supreme Court, defends more of Antifa’s behavior, and criticizes a 22-year-old intern for assaulting Jim Acosta.
Leftists Offer Organs to Justice Ginsburg
Recently, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg broke three of her ribs after a fall. Given the fact that Ginsburg is 85 years old, injuries of this type are worrying. However, some on the left were not simply concerned for her health and well-being, they were afraid of losing her seat on the Supreme Court. As a result, many prominent progressives decided to offer their support — and organs.
How generous — and fatal!
Actress Leslie Grossman expressed her willingness to give of herself to ensure that Ginsburg remains seated on the Supreme Court. “If Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs any of my bones or internal organs I don’t need mine,” she tweeted.
Journalist Lauren Duca also announced that she would “hereby donate all of my ribs and organs to Ruth Bader Ginsburg.” How generous — and fatal!
Holly Figueroa O’Reilly, a contributor to The Washington Post, said that she would give “3 ribs to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg if she needs them, along with whichever other body parts she requires until 2020.”
The potential ramifications of these proposals are staggering. If Ginsburg were to take these intrepid individuals up on their offer, she could potentially have a body made up of the organs of several members of the left-wing press. Think about it. She would essentially become a version of Frankenstein’s monster that constantly spews fake news!Matt Yglesias
Vox Writer Defends Antifa
After the news broke about the far-left activists who showed up at the home of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to threaten his wife, many on both the left and the right condemned their actions. Unfortunately, some have lauded the group’s behavior, even going so far as to defend their antics.
Matt Yglesias, co-founder and senior correspondent for Vox, apparently saw nothing wrong with left-wing thugs threatening the wife of a journalist. Indeed, he seems to believe that the situation was Carlson’s fault. He tweeted:
“I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not as a strategy, is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of the MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc.”
Yglesias later slammed his critics for being more concerned about Carlson’s family than his supposed “victims.” “I agree that this is probably not tactically sound but if your instinct is to empathize with the fear of the Carlson family rather than with the fear of his victims, then you should take a moment to reflect on why that is.”
Not surprisingly, the journalist faced an enormous backlash that prompted him to delete both tweets.
The View Claims Jim Acosta Was Assaulted
CNN’s Jim Acosta, a far-left activist who pretends to be a journalist, recently came under fire after he attempted to disrupt Trump’s post-midterm press conference. When Acosta made it clear that he was more interested in pontificating about Trump’s rhetoric regarding the approaching caravan of asylum seekers from Honduras, the president moved on and told Acosta to give up the microphone.
At this point, one of the interns reached out to take the microphone from Acosta’s hand, but he pushed her arm away in an effort to keep the microphone. Needless to say, this incited a wave of criticism from those who have grown weary of Acosta’s antics.Jim Acosta
But, as usual, many on the left defended his behavior. In a recent appearance on “The View,” Sunny Hostin attempted to paint Acosta as the victim. “What I saw was a battery, not by Jim Acosta, but by the young White House aide.”
While it is not difficult to believe that a petite 22-year-old female intern could take Acosta in a fight, it is harder to believe that her attempt to take the microphone somehow constitutes battery.
The results of the midterm elections have bred discontent and disappointment among many on the left. This is likely because they did not see the blue wave for which they had hoped. Perhaps this is why they are attempting to steal the elections in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona. Given the current state of political discourse in the United States, it is more than probable that our friends on the progressive left will provide everyone with more examples of their lunacy.
