LIBERALISM (i.e. LEFTISM) IS A MENTAL DISORDER

Leftism is a mental disorder. I am convinced of that and this is deeply embedded in my bones and certainly through my mind. You know what the mind is, right? The main cognitive function of the brain stems from the mind and is that thing that Leftist do not know how to use, or even if they have one.

Radio host and political pundit Michael Savage published a book back in 2005 entitled Liberalism is a Mental Disorder in which he argued that the ideology of the left as a tangible mental illness.  Perhaps though, liberalism is not so much a novel mental disorder, but a more cleverly disguised form of illness already widely studied since the late ‘60s – narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

Even though Michael Savage and psychiatrist Lyle H. Rossiter, in his book The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness use the term "liberal" in a general sense, they both understand the specific understanding of "Leftist" is what should come to mind. As Dennis Prager argues on his Prager University website on many occasions, being liberal means one can and often does use his mind for reasoning, data harvesting, research and debate; but a Leftist is on almost every occasion, incapable of reasoning, rationality or research by harvesting data and using primary source. A liberal may use logic, a leftist wouldn't recognize logic if it walked up to him and introduced itself.

So from here on out, understand that I believe and many better educated men that I also think that it is Leftistism that is ties to NPD, as well as another personality disorder called the Antisocial Personality.

The Mayo Clinic defines NPD as “a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration.”  This seems in tune with the fact that Leftists – along with their degenerate offspring asking for “safe spaces” and hiding from chalk – believe their policies and platforms fall in the majority – or the 99% if you will – despite being outnumbered by conservatives in 47 of 50 states.

There are other symptoms that define NPD and the left alike…

Expecting constant praise and admiration

This is a staple of college Leftists and their constant ‘look at me’ attitude.  The need to feed their pride consumes them, fueling a self-importance that must continue to grow through perpetual media coverage. Protesting sidewalk chalk, protesting topless sunbathing, protesting the right to have a ‘safe space,’ protesting the First Amendment, etc. And all the while they look for support for their protests, they look for praise, they look for admiration – which the media usually obliges.

Being jealous of others

The very premise on which the Leftist platform of wealth redistribution and social justice are based, is jealousy. They want what others have, and they want it without cost to themselves, either monetarily or based on time. They are envious of those with wealth, health insurance, homes, etc. It is a common attribute upon which all Leftist protesters rally around.

Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans

Is there anything that personified this more than the Obamacare fight?  An Obama legacy measure that was opposed by a wide margin, 54-41 percent.  Yet it was still rammed down the collective throats of the American people.  Why?  Because Leftists honestly thought that once the plebeians had a chance to see their ideas, they would go along with it.  Proof of this materialized when Nancy Pelosi uttered these famous words:  “… We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

Setting unrealistic goals

Those crazy college kids we mentioned earlier at one point or another have given us a wide-ranging and varied list of humorous demands that include these deep-seated Leftist fantasies.

  • Guaranteed “living wage” income regardless of employment
  • Free college education
  • Open borders migration
  • Immediate, across-the-board debt forgiveness for all

The Leftist politician’s equivalent of this list would be:

  • Extending unemployment benefits ad nauseam, and of course the Fight For $15
  • Free college education
  • Amnesty for illegal immigrants (DREAM Act and executive amnesty)
  • Student loan forgiveness

You’ll notice these are all current platforms with our sitting President, or those on the Democrat side looking to succeed him.

A sense of entitlement

The Leftist movement amounts to nothing more than making excuses to legitimize a platform of laziness and entitlements.  We’ve seen these in campus protests, minimum wage protests, anti-Wall Street, anti-capitalism protests, and advocates of perpetual welfare.   Their solution to counter corporate greed is to steal from those that have worked hard to attain their level of wealth, and give to those who refuse to reach such a work ethic. ‘Tax the Rich’ anyone? Money for nothing, or entitlement, seems to be a birthright for the left.

Trouble keeping healthy relationships

Too easy. Remember the Occupy movement, a bunch of jobless Leftists camping out in government-owned parks for weeks? Does this sound like a group of individuals with relationship issues?

  • A 24-year-old convicted sex offender involved with a 14-year-old at Occupy Dallas.
  • Assaults and instances of groping in New York’s Zuccotti Park.
  • ‘Women Only‘ sleeping quarters had to be erected at the New York encampment.
  • A permit was yanked in Madison, Wisconsin, due to public indecency.
  • A Los Angeles protester arrested for the same reason … in front of children.

All of these symptoms seem to define an individual who is unable to express their frustration in a rational manner – hence the campus protests.  The Mayo Clinic diagnosis seems to speak to Leftists directly:

“In order to make yourself feel better, you may react with rage or contempt and efforts to belittle the other person to make yourself appear better.”

That’s practically a tailor-made diagnosis for Trump protesters these days.

In the end, Savage was right. Liberalism (i.e. Leftism) is a mental disorder.

So here is what I summarize from both Michael Savage and Lyle Rossiter and it certainly applies to every Leftist I have ever met:

Radical Leftism is not an acquired disorder, but rather a form of brainwashing that turns people erratic and irrational and turns them into emotional wrecks. This best explains the lady in my church I referred to in yesterday's rant. She was totally unhinged that I would mention or imply that Joe Biden is not counting American and Christian Afghan refugees as priority in his administration's rescue efforts. He is not, many in his administration say he is not and have confirmed that as fact, but this woman goes off in such a manner that she about strokes out in the church parking lot.

 Here are a few more examples of what I call feeling based over emotional train wrecks incapable of using their thought process:

1.  Muh Fee Fees (Feelings) over Logic And Data

Leftists can only view the end result of a system. Crime stats are racist, wage stats are sexist, terrorism stats are Islamophobic, suicide stats are transphobic, and obesity stats are transphobic.

Deriving conclusions from experience and behavioral data is now a form of oppression to the minorities that make up the Democrat voting bloc.

2. The Race Justifies The Means

Of all the thought crimes that are the pinnacle of evil to the left, none is worse than “wayshizum.”

Curiously, only light-skinned people are apparently guilty of this great evil, and assault, defamation, murder, censorship, rape, and incarceration are all acceptable means to punish racists for their satanic thought crimes in the eyes of the leftist…

This is not social progress, this is societal retardation.

3. Leftism Makes You Ugly

From an article entitled: “Feminism is a way for unattractive women to feel good about themselves, as Rush Limbaugh pointed out, and the fat-acceptance, public nudity, ‘ghetto kweeeen,’ and a myriad other niche leftist movements are also vehicles to lift up undesired classes and turn them into voting blocks.”

4. Leftism Becomes A Substitute Religion

Religion has been a driving force in humanity since the beginning of time, and with atheism becoming the mainstream of leftist thought, there is a spiritual void on the left that is all too often filled by communist ideology.

Government takes the role of god, cable TV personalities take on the role of priests, and the Political Right becomes Satan. The core religious dogma becomes climate change, “equality”, social programs, and cultural degeneracy.

5. Leftism Is A Suicidal Ideology

If you were to ask the average college hippie to trace back the roots of their ideology, the final step of their thought pattern is chilling.

Under the name of “progress”, the left seeks to revert to a system of borderless anarchy, uncleanliness, public indecency, tribalism, and ultimately genocide. The precedent of communist regimes in the past is a dark one indeed.

Open borders and a weak military are the mantras of a death cult.

Ultimately, while conservatives also hold irrational or illogical beliefs, the left is the only political ideology that encourages wholesale destruction of rational thought in lieu of appeals to emotion and internalized degeneracy.

And that is the definition of a mental disorder. And it is destroying our country.

Blogging

Blogs are about the blogger. It's as if he or she merely toots their own horns about the things they do, say and love.

My life is boring. I read, I watch Glenn Beck and Mark Levin. I listen to Andrew Wilkow. I engage in some conversation with those who are willing to listen (they being masochistic and enjoy killing themselves with my banter).

I plan on just laying out the things that bother me and the things I love. Nothing in-between. I hope you find whatever I put here amusing.
