Liberal: I want things. You have things I want. Therefore you must give me your things.
Conservative: I worked hard for my things. If you work hard you can have things too.
Liberal: It’s easier for me to take your things.
Conservative: Well that’s not fair.
Liberal: You’re a hater. You’re a bigot. You’re a racist.
Conservative: Why do you say that?
Liberal: Society gives you privilege.
Conservative: I took chances. I made my own way. No one gave me anything.
Liberal: I don’t care. Give me what I want or I will find a way to take it from you.
There is a mental illness sweeping our country. I call it the liberal mindset and it contains elements of extreme narcissism and sociopathic tendencies. All forms of mental disease can turn dangerous if not treated properly but what makes this condition in our country even more frightening is that unlike other forms of mental illness this one appears to be spreading like a contagious disease, a virus gone rampant if you will. I’m not a psychologist or a mental health professional but I do see some very suspicious correlations between this new liberal mindset and these mental illnesses that are worth noting. Bear with me. The similarities may shock you.
One area in which liberals often appear to be completely unstable is when they’re opinions and ideologies are challenged. I am continually baffled by the extreme emotion they often resort to when confronted with factual information. Meaningful, thought-provoking conversations with a liberal rarely ever happen because they cannot seem to side-step the emotions they feel and consider the facts being presented. More often than not, they become angry, tongue-tied and in some cases violent. You would think they would be able to counter with a logical argument and if unable to substantiate their opinions with facts, admit defeat, acquiesce or walk away. Yet all too often they cannot and do not. So what is it about the liberal mind that causes it to so flagrantly disregard an opposing opinion and shut itself down to rational conversation? I believe this may be due in part to narcissism.
According to Medical News Today, narcissistic personality disorder or NPD is a disorder in which “……the individual has a distorted self image, unstable and intense emotions, is overly preoccupied with vanity, prestige, power and personal adequacy, lacks empathy, and has an exaggerated sense of superiority.” Mayo Clinic staff describes NPD as, “a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.” They go on to say that narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life along with “great disappointment when you’re not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve….”.
The angry liberal mob is growing larger and they are getting bolder and louder. Like children who just learned their parent’s lied to them about Santa Claus, they want to know there will be presents under the tree next year and they’re ready to throw Molotov cocktails to see that it happens. I believe it is extremely arrogant and selfish to expect society to provide for them because they don’t want to work and even more frightening that many are willing to turn to violence because they resent the expectation they may be asked to do so. This extreme disregard for the impact this has on society is dangerous and narcissistic.
I personally believe that if pressed further, most liberals would be forced to admit that their demands are rooted in selfishness, entitlement and fear of failure but to acknowledge that would be to admit weakness. So great is the liberal’s need to substantiate his or her own political view and ideology of the world that lashing out violently against the opposition is what we continue to see time and time again. Violence without remorse. Like bullies on a playground, it is much easier for liberals to turn the tables to name-calling, shaming and throwing things to get what they want. Not exactly the “progressive” party.
The definition of a sociopath according to Merriam-Webster dictionary is “someone who behaves in a dangerous or violent way towards other people and does not feel guilty about such behavior.” Dictionary.com defines a sociopath as “a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.”
How often have you witnessed personally and through the media the attempts of conservative speakers to lecture on college campuses only to be run off due to the threat of violence? When the speaker cancels the event, the reaction from the media and the rioters is jubilation. In many cases it’s the educators themselves who are at the helm, encouraging the madness. Reference the several UC-Berkeley professors who shamefully justified the rioting and destruction after Milo Yiannopoulos, a gay conservative, was scheduled to speak on February 1, 2017. Or the middle school teacher and organizer of the violent left-wing protest group “By Any Means Necessary” Yvette Falarca who was seen throwing punches at a protestor. One would think that opposing views of social issues would be welcome for the chance to engage young minds in healthy debate but far too often on campuses today, that is not the case. This is violence without remorse.
With the increase in lies coming from our corrupt media, power-hungry politicians and brain-washed liberal zealots, it is easier now more than ever for the liberal mob to view the conservative individual not as a human being but as an object to be cut down and silenced by any means necessary. This “separation from self” explains how these perpetrators can rationalize acts of violence against other human beings. The lack of remorse to the pain and suffering they’ve caused the victims during these riots and their indifference to the destruction of property is akin to the sociopath’s anti-social, often violent behavior against members of conservative society.
There is a growing belief in this country amongst the Left that one can also have their physical and carnal needs met through the channels of violence and bullying. As stated before, the liberal perpetrator’s brain does not see his or her actions as being hurtful so long as it satisfies the selfish desires within. Much like the thief who loves her family dearly, the serial rapist who shows his girlfriend affection or the murderer who coaches little league, the liberal is excellent at rationalizing extreme acts of violence and injustices against society and humanity if it supports his or her agenda. Violence without remorse. We saw this firsthand in the case against Planned Parenthood. Those of us with a conscience watched in horror as Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical research talked casually about crushing an embryo with a hammer while drinking wine. And then there’s Dr. Mary Gatter, president of Planned Parenthood laughing while discussing the sale of baby parts exclaiming that she “wants a Lamborghini!” We watched in total disbelief as they went into detail itemizing which parts of these helpless human victims were more lucrative. These tiny babies experienced unimaginable horrors and these monsters were laughing. This wasn’t just the actions of two sociopaths. The entire organization of Planned Parenthood rationalizes the violence of abortion and they do so under the “guise” of women’s health.
So who or what is to blame for this change in the American mind? The Declaration of Independence states that people have the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” It does not say that people have a right to free food, free housing, free healthcare, free education, free iPhones, free daycare and the accessibility to recreational drugs at the government’s expense. It is a giant step backwards when society can justify violence and murder because it is convenient and because it has chosen to redefine terminology. This is not progressivism. This is the liberal mindset.
