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.”…… Rossiter says the kind of liberalism being displayed by the two major candidates for the Democratic Party presidential nomination can only be understood as a psychological disorder.
Hell, I knew I was crazy, but I’m glad I have this doctor to finally call it out. With America’s greatest health-care in the world, wonder why we are just figuring this out?
What is hilarious on its face is that he is suggesting that Obama and Clinton are “liberals”. Just how far to the right does one have to be to consider them liberal?
But, the good doctor does explain, in some detail, the issues that liberals force on others:
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.
Dr. Lyle Rossiter, a psychologist who’s practiced for thirty-five years, in a book titled, The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness, maintains that liberalism is a psychological disorder. He asserts that liberals, “rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”
Does Dr. Rossiter accept medical insurance? Oh, maybe it’s not an issue since most Americans can’t afford it. Liberals are nuts?!!
He characterizes the liberal agenda as preying on weakness and insecurities in the population by “rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.”
Has Dr. Rossiter treated any of Americans who feel we’d been tricked into going to war by an administration with its own agenda? Liberals are nuts?!!
Rossiter characterizes modern liberals as “whining about imaginary villains,” depicting them as neurotic. Were we not told by Bush & co., “You’re either with us or against us?” Wasn’t this conservative government repeatedly insisting they’ve been saving us from being attacked? Liberals are nuts?!!
His premise is that caring about others is infantilizing. If liberal can be seen as a psychological disturbance, would not the conservative agenda qualify as narcissistic? And if liberals are nuts, perhaps it’s a response to conservative policies.
That last sentence explains me, to a “T”. How can anyone, irregardless of ideology, embrace the agenda of these neocon tools have screwed us?
I once called myself “conservative”, but if it means being one of these monsters we call the Bush Admin or resembling them in any way, then please, for God’s sake, call me a liberal.
I will PROUDLY wear that over the idiocy that is now equated with being a conservative.
