Psychiatrist: Leftists are mentally ill

'Strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions' cited by clinical psychotherapist

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."

You're always good for a laugh. You aware the bizarre claim was presented years ago?

I'll stick with Albert Einstein, Henry David Thoreau, FDR, Thomas Paine, George Orwell and so many others.

Meanwhile, let's look a tad closer at the "World Net Daily" site, shall we?

A Wholesale Purveyor of Lies and Slander
Submitted by Kyle Mantyla on Tuesday, 12/16/2008 10:40 am

It seems that Joseph Farah, founder, editor and CEO of the right-wing rag WorldNetDaily, is not much of a fan of Wikipedia:

    "Joseph Francis Farah is an Evangelical Christian American journalist and noted homosexual of Lebanese and Syrian heritage."

    – the first line of my bio in Wikipedia

    The Internet has brought the world some wonderful sources of information.

    And it has brought us some perfectly dreadful sources of misinformation.

    Wikipedia falls into the latter category. And this column is my latest effort to demonstrate just how abusive this so-called "online collaborative encyclopedia" really is.

    It is not only a provider of inaccuracy and bias. It is wholesale purveyor of lies and slander unlike any other the world has ever known.

    ...

    If ever there were a website to avoid at all costs, it's Wikipedia. No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

We have no reason to question Farah's insistence that he is not gay, and the Wikipedia entry has reportedly been corrected, so it seems as if this little controversy will soon evaporate ... but still, you have to admit that it is pretty funny that Farah, of all people, is screaming that Wikipedia is a "vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit" considering what is posted on his website at the moment:

    Veteran psychiatrist calls liberals mentally ill

    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."

    Economic crisis stalls NAFTA superhighway

    Amid an economic storm, there is good news for opponents of North American integration under the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, or SPP, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.

    Join exploding demand for citizenship documentation

    More than 185,000 people have signed a petition urging authorities to investigate Barack Obama's eligibility to be president prior to his inauguration, and the list is growing hourly.

    WND's electronic petition calls on all controlling legal authorities to take seriously the matter of where and when and to whom Obama was born and whether he qualifies as a "natural-born American citizen," according to Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.

And, of course, who can forget one of WND's most striking pieces of investigative journalism - soy makes you gay:

    Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That's why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today's rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products. (Most babies are bottle-fed during some part of their infancy, and one-fourth of them are getting soy milk!) Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because "I can't remember a time when I wasn't homosexual." No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can't remember a time when excess estrogen wasn't influencing them.

And yet it is Wikipedia, proclaims Farah, that is "not only a provider of inaccuracy and bias [but a] wholesale purveyor of lies and slander unlike any other the world has ever known."

Guys, you have to stop and consider the source. Don't forget that this was the guy who left the messageboard (wasn't it nice?) because he put his foot in his mouth when he voted for Mitt. Take it with a grain of salt and please show some sympathy here.

Sometimes people who start certain threads are mentally ill, too.

Nah. The article is too ludicrous for anyone to be profoundly insulted.
