The Washington Post has slammed the American people as “spoiled”and demanded that consumers in the United States “lower expectations” amid Democrat Joe Biden’s many crippling crises.
Neonnettle The newspaper, which is owned by the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, declared that Americans should stop ranting about short-staffed businesses and supply chain issues in “Joe Biden’s America.”
The Post was shredded on social media for claiming that U.S. consumers should stop expecting to buy all the groceries they want from stores in Biden’s economy and instead “try to lower expectations.”
“Time for some new, more realistic expectations,” columnist Micheline Maynard wrote in an article reminiscent of Soviet Russia’s socialist propaganda.
Maynard continued by blasting Americans for being used to fast service and easy access to consumer products. “American consumers, their expectations pampered and catered to for decades, are not accustomed to inconvenience.”
Falling short of branding Americans “capitalist pigs,” Maynard claimed that consumers would be doing themselves a favor by “consciously lowering expectations” instead of expecting the Democrat regime to keep the economic machine ticking over.
Critics quickly excoriated the piece on social media, with some suggesting that lowering expectations was “becoming the theme of Joe Biden’s America,” and others suggesting such a “mantra” could negatively impact Democrats heading into the midterm elections.
Some critics also noted that the call for Americans to accept empty store shelves was like living in the former Soviet Union, which was often plagued by shortages in consumer goods.
“Good news: it’s the 1980s again. Bad news: it’s Soviet Russia’s version of the 1980s, complete with Pravda,” wrote reporter Mollie Hemingway.
A number of Republican organizations and members of Congress also blasted the piece, placing blame on Joe Biden.
