Leftist Media Blames Americans for Biden's Supply Chain Crisis: ‘Stop Shopping’

Liberal media outlets are pushing an anti-growth narrative popular with those believing Joe Biden's supply chain crisis is better for the planet.

Rather than report on inflation and shortages, which make the Biden administration look bad, many left-leaning media outlets are trying to steer Americans away from a so-called wasteful lifestyle toward more socialist, environmentalist habits.

Last week, the Washington Post published an op-ed titled: “Don’t rant about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes.”

The article's author, a culinary expert, named Micheline Maynard, blasted “pampered” and “spoiled” American consumers who “whine” at shops and restaurants, and suggests that “we’d do ourselves a favor by consciously lowering expectations.”

She also argues that previous generations endured shortages of gasoline, food, and housing: “Now it’s our turn.”

The liberal “explainer” website Vox.com also declared:

“It’s time for Americans to buy less stuff.”

It seems to ignore the consequences for retailers, wholesalers, importers, manufacturers, advertisers, and delivery drivers.

Early shopping, author Terry Nguyen said it was bad for workers “and the planet.”

She explained we could just “buy less" and added that “mindfulness” in consumption can bring us greater joy.

The Atlantic's Amanda Mull demanded people "stop shopping," despite her previous job as a reviewer for Chanel and Hermès bags at the PurseBlog website.

She claimed the reason for the shortages was because Americans are just buying too much stuff.

But “spending is not distributed equally,” with rich people buying “discretionary” things while others struggle to find supplies to make school lunches. The problem: “resources get allocated according to little other than profit.”

The author's advice seems to tie into the ideology of degrowth, described by conservative radio host Mark Levin in his recent book, American Marxism, as an amalgam of “red” and “green” ideologies: “[T]he goal is to reverse the massive economic progress resulting from, long other things, the Industrial Revolution, which created a huge, vibrant middle class and infinite technological, scientific, and medical advancements that have overwhelmingly advanced the human condition.”

Earleir this month, Neon Nettle reported that food shortages are spiking across the United States as Joe Biden struggles to resolve the supply chain crisis.

CEO and founder of Saffron Road, a producer of frozen and shelf-stable meals, Adnan Durrani told the Seattle Times:“

"People are hoarding [food]."

“What I think you’ll see over the next six months, all prices will go higher.”

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg later claimed the current supply chain crisis in the U.S is because Joe Biden “successfully brought this economy out of the teeth of the recession."

“Remember, you can’t talk about supply without talking about demand. Part of the reason we are where we are is that the president successfully brought this economy out of the teeth of the recession, people are buying more than ever before."

"We’re seeing record goods coming through our ports."
