The New York Times, that awesome bastion of journalistic integrity, decided to do America a great service by producing a guide featuring tips for how to “cope” with the results of the 2022 midterm elections, which includes gems such as “breathe like a baby.” Can you imagine what would happen to all of the liberal snowflakes out there if the NY Times didn’t produce this critical, need-to-know, informational guide? I don’t even want to think about it.
According to the Daily Wire, the Times posted a graphic on Twitter that instructs readers to apply five tips to “soothe election stress.”
- Try five-finger breathing. Trace the outside of your hand with your pointer finger. When you trace up, breathe in, and when you trace down, breathe out.
- Cool down. Plunge your face into a bowl with ice water for 15 to 30 seconds.
- Move. Even a walk around the block can offer some relief for an uneasy mind.
- Breathe like a baby. Focus on expanding your belly as you breathe, which can send more oxygen to the brain.
- Limit your scrolling. Consider plotting out specific times when you will look for election updates.
I know what you’re thinking. Has everyone in this country gone insane? Fortunately, the answer to that question is “no.” A number of folks on Twitter came out of the woodwork to ruthlessly mock this “guide” for the fragile individuals on the left who will cry themselves to sleep after being saturated by the red wave splashing across the United States.
“Maybe you shouldn’t have spent six months convincing your gullible readers that democracy will end if their party loses,” radio host Dan O’Donnell replied.
“See? They know. It’s bad,” political commentator Mike Cernovich stated in a post on Twitter. “NYT knows it’s time to accept defeat. God help them if they try to cheat. It will be so obvious.”
Jon Levine, a reporter from the New York Post, tweeted, “Could you imagine conservative media talking to their readers this way.”
Journalist Andy Ngo said, “This is embarrassing.”
“Well, you can’t say the NYT doesn’t know its subscriber base…” writer Mark Hemingway said.
Ben Dreyfuss, another journalist, posted on Twitter, “If you’re plunging your face into a bowl of ice water because of the NYT election needle, I think you might want to talk to somebody.”
“The polls haven’t closed yet and we’ve already reached the ‘plunge your face in ice water’ and ‘breathe like a baby’ stages of grief for the mainstream media,” radio host Gerry Callahan posted.
This is exactly why this country is currently in such bad shape. Many of the individuals that make up the modern Democratic Party are so fragile and emotionally immature that they can’t take it when their own side wins a political race? Which is something they can change in just a matter of years?
Come on now.
This society is not the same one that has produced the exceptionalism that America has long had a reputation for. Leftists really need to develop some serious intestinal fortitude.
