This just proves what most of us have known for quite a long time, liberals are not healthy in the head at all.
“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”
Does this sound like anyone or any group you know?
The sad part is that this doesn’t come from some right wing, liberal hating, talk show host. Nope – not at all, this comes from a board-certified clinical psychiatrist who has also participated in civil and criminal cases. In other words, a real professional.
Here’s another part from this article that I have seen all too often from my liberal arts classes:
Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:
- creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
- satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
- augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
- rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government
I have consistantly heard from my ’teachers’ in the liberal arts classes about ‘white man’s privilege’ and how “if you are white, you are racist whether you know it or not” and my personal favorite one “The government should do something about (insert liberal cause of the week)”.
Never are any of these arguments backed up with facts and instead, when challenged on their statement the result is a bombardment of ad-hominum attacks or statement of how “It’s not fair” or “Well I don’t care what the law says..” While at the same time screaming that “Bush broke the law!”
I have a friend who is a strong liberal (we just don’t talk politics usually) and he was telling me once about how Bush should be impeached becasue “He lied”. When I pointed out that Clinton DID lie, under oath his response was “Well, that’s OK because he was getting the job done the way I like it.”
To be fair though, I actually found the link to this article when I was over at Brutally Honest whom I must thank for bringing this one to my attention
