Op-Ed: Is American conservatism a type of autism?
Digital Journal ^ | Sep 27, 2012 | Paul Wallis

Posted on 09/26/2012 11:48:14 PM PDT by ExxonPatrolUs

Autism is described as a medical condition whereby people are selfcentred, uncommunicative and at a remove from their social environment. There are many different types of autism and degrees of it. A type of “social autism” is also quite possible.

We have a Presidential candidate who’s just disowned any interest in 47% of the American public. This is “policy” and the GOP hasn’t retracted one word in any shape or form. Apparently treating half of the American public like human beings isn’t on the agenda.

Nobody should be too surprised by this mindset. It’s the default thinking for modern conservatives.

These are the standard positions and their results:
1. American military veterans are treated like animals. Their problems don’t exist and don’t matter. “Our boys and girls” simply stop being part of the family.
2. The poor are criminals. They must be. Why else would they be poor?
3. Wall Street’s Finest are not criminals.
4. Sick people only get sick to take money away from the rich. Next time you get contact syphilis, remember that.
5. There is no other subject worth talking about but taxes...

It’s about dehumanizing their enemy. If they can dehumanize them, they can kill them.

It’s modern day facism, nicely tied up in a bow.

Is Paul Wallis a necrophiliac?

I don’t know, but let’s say yes. Chew on that, internet.

Liberals agree with point two. Or, rather, that criminals are poor. They blame it on poverty. Are happy to blame it on poverty. Or racism.

Point five is contradicted by various other points.

I think Mr. Wallis has been imbibing a little too much of the MSM kool-aid.

The answer to those ‘symptoms’ would be no, Paul. The better question:

Is American liberalism a type of megalomania?

and

Is stupidity a type of medical condition?

Is liberalisim proof of brain damage?

I think more proof exists for that idea than this authors point of view.

If I were a dingy senator speaking with immunity on the floor of the Senate, could I relate what an unnamed coworker from digitaljournal.com told me about Paul Wallis's, er, preferences?

Describes the incumbent to a "T".

6. Conservatives give more to charity than Liberals.

Kinda debunks all the others, eh?

Liberals are like the large family that shows up at the annual town potluck empty handed and tries to impress folks with their superior character by preaching the virtue of sharing. Conservatives are the folks who know that a potluck is a losing proposition but they put the casseroles together so that they can participate and interact with their neighbors and make their community a bit of a friendlier place. Conservatives don’t show up for the meal, they show up for their neighbors.

This particular slimeball is from Australia, and I sincerely doubt he’s ever talked to one, single member of the Tea Party. He does what all left/libs do: invent things he thinks Tea Party members believe in and then condemn the phony TPer. Typical leftist liar.

Apparently not nutbar if your article is any kind of example.
American humans need to get off their asses and quit expecting everyone else to take care of them via taxpayer’s money.
You know act like responsible human beings.
Oops my social autism is slipping out again.

Welcome to the USSA, comrades.

Dissent to Big Government will now be diagnosed as a mental disorder.

Is Paul Wallis any relation to that other barking moonbat Jim Wallis?

Or maybe he’s the same person with an alias, like a website troll who’s been banned. Still saying the same moonbatty things.

Hmmm. Well for sure Mr. Wallis is a racist. Martin Luther King was a Republican.

If Paul were half as smart as he thinks he is, he’d be twice as smart as his writing indicates.

Yes, it is. Now according to the ADA, we have to build us ramps and elect us to office.

"Dissent to Big Government will now be diagnosed as a mental disorder."

An approach to people control endemic to totalitarian regimes, and something Stalin's USSR honed to a fine art, IIRC.

That worked out really well.
