Die MSM, Die – The New Yorker Strike

I did have to laugh at the news the other day that workers at the famed magazine, The New Yorker, are going on strike for more money for themselves and their oppressed co-workers.

Here’s the link to the New Yorker Union home page, and the associated Tweet is a doozy from a graphics point of view.

I didn’t know there was such a group but I do love their attempt to convert the famous logo of The New Yorker into a symbol of The Workers.

Yeah.. Nah!

That symbol has been the magazine’s brand since it was launched almost one hundred years ago and it’s of a “dandy”:

A dandy, historically, is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of self. A dandy could be a self-made man who strove to imitate an aristocratic lifestyle despite coming from a middle-class background, especially in late 18th- and early 19th-century Britain.

I’ve been amused for years now that Lefties have so worshipped a magazine that has, as its logo, such a precise image of a Capitalist Oppressor: expensive clothing, top hat, nose lifted in the air as he uses a monocle to examine a butterfly.

It is the perfect symbol for the modern Western Left winger.

Mind you, given the great success the Left have had in converting Black to White, Up to Down, and other Newspeak terms, they might be able to pull off this conversion as well.

To be fair to the workers it does seem – judging from the comments at the union website – that the logo is appropriate within the context of the classic union story:

Having worked at the wage floor ($42,000 a year) for more than two years, I know how difficult life can be on the company’s meagre salaries.

That is an incredibly poor salary for New York City in 2021.


Having said that, looking at the photos of these workers does not inspire any visions of them brawling with police on the picket line.

I suggest they learn to code.

Perhaps a better plan would simply be to get paid by the Democrat National Committee, although there’s no reason why they’d pay for fawning coverage like this when they’re already getting it for free.

That came after Joe once again fumbled reading his teleprompter and called the Royal Air Force the “RFA” as well as referring to “Global WarNing” as the number one threat, whereas I thought it was White Supremacism.

Incidentally Nicolle Wallace worked on John McCain’s 2008 Presidential campaign. McCain was always going to lose that race but I can’t see how Nicolle would have helped win it and she may have even tried losing it for McCain. Good to see these people with the masks off, although I see vaccinated Joe is still wearing his face diaper.

Meantime I fully support the efforts of The New Yorker Union and hope that they strike for a long, long time. Down with The New Yorker. It’s time to smash the place.
