Liberals Suffer From Mental Disease
If you've been paying attention for the past few years, you may have noticed a trend. Some people appear increasingly incapable of constructive or philosophical debate about almost any topic. When was the last time you had a great discussion with someone about politics, birth control, gun control, freedom and liberty, censorship, economics, governance, or any range of other topics? It's like you discovered you had to shut the conversation down FAST because the other guy was coming unglued! Many of us have long suspected this phenomenon, but now a study proves it.
The markers for mental illness are often fairly obvious, but not always immediately recognized in daily interactions. The symptoms include delusional thinking, sometimes psychotic episodes, the inability to engage in rational discussion, immaturities such as always wanting your own way, temper tantrums, squelching thoughts or expressions of anyone who disagrees with their position, and ultimately – hurling verbal insults at anyone they are unable to control.
Recently, this mental disease seems to have led them to fits of violence as they get nowhere with their agenda. I think the disease leaves them unable (or unwilling) to process new or changing information. And once committed to a dogma they demonstrate an incapability to make a shift to assimilate new data. Given this mental state, is no wonder that, when presented with hard facts, many will just come unglued and have a public meltdown!
Some teasers from the study:
Survey data from a March Pew poll indicates that white liberals disproportionately suffer from mental illness.
Nearly half of self-identifying white liberals between the ages of 18 and 29 reported telling a doctor or a healthcare provider that they have a mental health condition.
Only 20.9% of white conservatives in the same category reported as such.
