Top psychiatrist concludes liberals clinically nuts

Eminent psychiatrist makes case ideology is mental disorder

February 15, 2008

WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

"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."

While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to "the vast right-wing conspiracy."

For more than 35 years he has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.

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.

In terms of why . . .

I prefer to help fellow FREEPERS police themselves vs annoy the mods so much the mods feel compelled to weigh in.

Also, I am aware that it is annoying to JimRob and something he really prefers is minimized.

Given all he does for us, I think it’s the least we can do to help police one another.

Ting bu dong?

Most of the time, I skate by because I post threads no one else would dear be caught dead posting. However, when I’m thinking of posting a conventional topic . . . and I search, I try and choose the any word option and then search through all the resulting hit pages exhaustively. It can be quite time consuming on some topics. This was interesting as the FIND ALL WORDS option only turned up your post. But I was certain the article had been posted earlier. So then I tried FIND ANY WORD option and found it after 5-6 pages of meaningless hits. Sounds like you made an earnest effort. It’s the folks who don’t try at all that are most annoying to JimRob, if my understanding is remotely accurate. It’s the folks who don’t try at all that are most annoying to JimRob, if my understanding is remotely accurate.

No. It is the PEOPLE WHO POST IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS!

You may have more inside info than I on that score.

But I don’t belong to the

fetish against CAPS club

that has seized on the convention, belief, dogma, doctrine,

that CAPS always = screaming

vs

a different tone,
raised eyebrows,
a different cadence.

But, hey, if you wish to be a sheeple about CAPS, far be it from me to suggest heresy.

WE ARE ALL AWARE OF THE RISK OF DUPLICATE POSTS. IF IT IS A DUPLICATE, IT IS ALREADY TOO LATE. AND YOUR CONSTANT OBSESSION WITH THIS IS ANNOYING IN TRYING TO WADE THROUGH IT ALL IN AN EFFORT TO GET TO THE MAIN POINT OF OTHERS' COMMENTS. MAYBE WE CAN GET A "POSTER IGNORE" FILTER WORKING.

Actually, I don’t thin all are so aware.

Thanks for your CAPS. They are easier for my aging eyes to read from 4 feet from my screen.

I’m sure poster ignore will enable you to sleep much better and FREEP much more serenely.

Cheers.

Caps are screaming/shouting. Their overuse is a display of lack of respect for the reader. In short, it is rude, crude, unrefined, and undignified.

From your page: LIFE IS SOOOOOOOOO COMPLEX, JUST ABOUT ANY COCKAMAMIE EXPLANATION WILL DO.... FEDERAL ID NUMBER WITH BIOMETRIC INFO . . . WAKE UP AMERICA!

see how annoying it is to have someone hi-jack a thread as you did with nuconvert for not searching.

Given the topic of this post . . .

it triggers reflection . . .

the evidence suggests that you have a backlog of angst in my direction.

I’d encourage you to let it go.

Serenity in a lot of contexts is much easier, then.

Oh dear. If that's the case, then you should be able to read this from four feet:

What a sweet and thoughtful concern and exhortation.

However, being a celibate single 61 year old . . .

I’ll just continue to take my Occuvite supplements and trust God with the whole shebang.

But your caring concern is very touching . . . errrr . . . thoughtful and comforting . . . errrr . . .

I believe liberals as we know them today fit the description given by Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:11,12. "And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness."

Liberals are promoting and supporting a philosophy that is in essence of the antichrist. I believe it's the end time government under the antichrist control. Once they have real control, their venom will become more pronounced and visible.

Yeah, I put some of my best stuff down one day, and about a half dozen guys harped on me fat fingering the keyboard with a double “o” in lose. They harped on and on about how I must not know the difference between lose and loose. I'm not even sure they read the post after my boo boo.

I'm not sure how we would survive here without the spelling and double post Nazi's. I'm more interested in the idea's than the details. When Obama's preacher hit the airwaves, I bet there were 50 different posts with the same theme here on FR.

Oh and BTW, Liberals are nuts! If they had any sense, they'd be Republicans. Damn, Coulter's already posted that one. Here come the post Nazi's.
