Conservatism as a Mental disorder
Posted in the Pikeville Forum

With the constant rantings it is hard not imagine conservatives as being mentally ill. So I decided to do a little checking and right there it is in Psychology today.

An interesting response to the author of the article:
Psychology used for political gain....again
Submitted by Mark, MSSI on June 12, 2012 - 6:43am.
Again, this website allows psychologists to post politically antagonistic articles instead of actual scientific, peer-reviewed research that actually increases one's intellectual knowledge base and does not distort things to push an agenda.
Here...watch. I can do it too. Liberals (read Socialists) such as yourself also suffer from mental illness:
1) Denial: capitalism is a racist, elitist economic system that exploits workers for the sake of the few (1%)
2) Delusion: the economy grows when public sector jobs are "created" at the expense of taxpayers (i.e. "shovel ready jobs")
3) Hallucination: "green" jobs are the future of the economy
4) Disordered thinking: being against a large military yet supporting "the troops" or "supporting the troops" by bringing them home before the mission is complete
5) Anger: the whole Occupy movement. Can't ignore the violence there... oh, and Ed Schultz. Wow. And the unions. Can't forget them.
6) Anti-social behavior: towards Christians, ACTUAL middle class (not Union-padded) families, the military, successful businesspeople, minorities who don't rely on the government for survival and can think for themselves
7) Sexual preoccupation: deciding that anything and everything goes, with whomever, wherever, and that there are no social norms that can be broken (see Lady Gaga)
8) Grandiosity: see Michelle Obama's lavish trips overseas and the "holier than though" attitude of the White House in general
9) General oddness: Al Gore, Hollywood, Joe Biden, Chris Matthews, etc.
10) Paranoia: Koch brothers conspiracy theorists, the media, and just about every other liberal out there.
See...you can generalize and throw bombs and so can I. What a crock. Write a real psychology post that brings learning to the fore and not some hack job that pushes your agenda.

You decided to do a search after others posted informing you of a prominant psychiatrist authoring a book refering to libs as mentally ill.

Find you a good Therapist who can help you work through these problems. Paranoia, anti Social Behavior, anger, Hallucinations, Delusions, and denial are typical republican traits and it doesn't take a Psychiatrist to tell us that. The sad part is you fellers know this is one hundred percent true.
The majority of the Country knows it and it is why Romney isn't President. I've told you guys several times it isn't that America loves Obama, it's that the majority hates you and your nonsense. I've read all over how republicans are claiming they must change. That the old hardcore bible thumpers need to go. That they have no choice but to move to the left. Personally I don't think it will help. Just too out of touch with reality and the everyday working man.

Conservatards are mentally unstable racist bigots with little or no education.

Yes, and here it is:
With Nancy Pelosi repeatedly telling audiences about hearing voices of deceased women, and Barack Obama regarded by many as dangerously narcissistic, here comes a veteran psychiatrist making the case that the mental-emotional world of leftists is actually tantamount to a mental disorder.
For more than 40 years, Rossiter has diagnosed and treated over 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases, both state and federal, as a forensic psychiatrist retained by numerous public offices, courts and private attorneys. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.
Rossiter explains with great clarity why the kind of liberalism displayed by Barack Obama during his presidency can only be understood as a psychological disorder.
“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Rossiter.“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.”
“A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says.“A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and overtaxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”
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.
“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says.“When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

Conservatards are typical
Ly useless members of Society that idolize Trust Fund Babies like Romney and are too cowardly to ever fight for America but try to talk tough.

Thank you. This is the one I read and it seems so true. I had breifly commented on it, but you brought it. Now, just check out the responses from the mentally ill left over a seemingly innocent comment. Just look how ugly they get. What do you think happened to these people? I mean we have the obvious explanation in your post, but I wonder how and why they became so weak.

It is glaringly apparent you went on a search after another poster informed of this psychiatrist professional opinion. Sorry about your illness, hopefully with O in office, you will began to experience some relief. Ignorance can be cured, just pick up some books and start reading. Maybe consider changing your idol to someone other than a Pos who gives free stuff. Study habits of self made men of integrity. Thats what I do, but my aspirations do seem a bit higher than Libs.

Just another one of the ignorant, angry masses.

Angry? Delusional exactly as I posted. We are ecstatic that the right has been beat down once again. Lying flip flopping nonsense assured your man of a defeat. Back to the mental disorders. There isn't one symptom that isn't displayed by bible thumping conservatives. Scared to death of what they fear. Believe in utter nonsense of zombies walking around after being dead three days, virgin births, claiming the Earth is but a few thousand years old, talking bushes, walking on water, and just about any stupidity they can dream up. So scared of what they imagine will happen after they pass they will believe anything. When you follow a cult that is based on a pervert that married a dozen teen girls and molested every one you are sick in the head. I can understand the part of wanting several wives, who wouldn't, but to claim it is because of your religion is ridiculous. Magic underwear and getting a Planet is about the silliest thing I have heard. Right along side of Scientology and Creationists. Even out Founding Fathers knew to keep the religious nonsense out of politics, and they wrote the Constitution, and here bible thumpers pretending they want to save it. Face it guys the majority hates your kind and your nonsense.
