This article simply reinforces what we already know.
The great Zach Goldberg, the youngish Ph.D student who has been quantifying the explosion of “wokeness” in the news media and elsewhere over the last decade, has been looking through the raw data in the Pew Research Center’s latest American Trends Panel Survey, and unearthed some interesting findings, which you can see here. Top line: liberals are more than twice as likely as conservatives to be found to have a mental health condition.
Especially notable is the lower chart, which shows that “very liberal” whites are much more likely to have mental health problems than “very liberal” non-whites. I’d love to see this broken out further by income, as I suspect that problem is especially strong with rich white liberals.
Turns out this isn’t an isolated finding. There’s a preprint paper posted in February on ResearchGate from Emil O.W. Kirkegaard of the Ulster Institute for Social Research entitled “Mental Illness and the Left.” The entire paper is available for download, but here’s the abstract:
“It has been claimed that left-wingers or liberals (US sense) tend to be more mentally ill than right-wingers or conservatives. This potential link was investigated using the General Social Survey. A search found 5 items measuring one’s own mental illness in different ways (e.g.”Do you have any emotional or mental disability?”). All of these items were associated with left-wing political ideology as measured by self-report. These results held up mostly in regressions that adjusted for age, sex, and race. For the variable with the most data, the difference in mental illness between “extremely liberal” and “extremely conservative” was 0.39 d. This finding is congruent with numerous findings based on related constructs.”
That mental illness translates into hate, anger, desperation and abject insanity.
The aftermath of the election brought out the bat-shit crazy in an already deranged leftwing nut demographic. They had a meltdown of epic proportions. They need therapy for their post-traumatic election syndrome.
It’s all downhill from there.
There’s a steady barrage of death threats, assaults, and filth-laden tantrums on social media from unhinged leftwing journos, college professors, and disgruntled Hillary voters who hate the fact that Trump was elected. Tough shit.
Their world centers around sophomoric narratives and SJW drivel. ‘White privilege‘, ‘microaggression‘, ‘triggering‘, and ‘safe spaces from scary ideas’ that provide cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets and a video of frolicking puppies, is what constitutes ‘wokeness’. They bloviate and spew like 2-year-olds, and apparently need to escape to their nursery when confronted with ideas and opinions that run contrary to their manufactured utopia.
One unhinged liberal “psychiatrist” claimed that, “Trump is as destructive a person in this century as Hitler, Stalin, Mao in the last century. He may be responsible for many more million deaths than they were.” Because when a new President reverses the damage inflicted by his predecessor, that equals genocide in the minds of these drooling psychotics.
Another case in point: A mother and her 15-year-old tranny son think he’s going through menopause.
Mental illness runs in the family.
The graphs are a psychological overview of the leftwing political demographic. Statistically, they make up the majority of the afflicted. Which reflects their everyday behavior.
