Yes, Liberalism IS a Mental Disorder

January 22, 2012 at 11:28 pm (Liberals, Mental, Michael Savage, Nancy Pelosi, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Occupy Wall Street, President Obama)

Presidential candidate, Rick Santorum, was the victim of a ‘glitter bombing’ Saturday night, as he delivered remarks following a third place finish in the South Carolina primary.  Glitter bombing is a supposed act of protest in which opponents are showered with glitter by leftists who support same-sex marriage policies.  What exactly would cause grown men and women to perform an act that is seemingly drawn from the mind of a child?
In 2005, Michael Savage famously wrote a book titled, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder, the subject of which is self-explanatory.  And more recently, Dr. Lyle Rossiter, a board-certified clinical psychologist, wrote a book in which he diagnosed the ideology of the left as a tangible mental illness.  Perhaps though, liberalism is not so much a novel mental disorder, but a more cleverly disguised form of illness already widely studied since the late ‘60s – narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).
The Mayo Clinic defines NPD as “a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration.”  This seems in tune with the fact that liberals, along with their degenerate offspring, the Occupy Wall Street movement, believe their policies and platforms fall in the majority – or the 99% if you will – despite being outnumbered by conservatives at a 2-1 clip. 
There are other symptoms that define NPD and the left alike…
Expecting constant praise and admiration

This is a staple of the Occupy movement and their constant ‘look at me’ media whoring.  The need to feed their pride consumes them, fueling a self-importance that must continue to grow through perpetual media coverage.
Being jealous of others

The very premise on which the Occupy movement and the liberal platform of wealth redistribution are based is jealousy. They want what others have, and they want it without cost to themselves, either monetarily or based on time. They are envious of those with wealth, health insurance, homes, etc. It is a common attribute upon which all liberal protesters rally around.
Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans

Is there anything that personified this more than the Obamacare fight?  The measure was opposed by likely voters by a wide margin, 54-41 percent.  Yet it was still rammed down the collective throats of the American people.  Why?  Because liberals honestly thought that once the plebeians had a chance to see their ideas, they would go along with it.  Proof of this materialized when Nancy Pelosi uttered these famous words:  “… We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”
Setting unrealistic goals

Those crazy kids over at the OWS website, at one point gave us a list of humorous demands that included these deep-seated liberal fantasies.
  • Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment
  • Free college education
  • Open borders migration
  • Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all
The liberal politician’s equivalent of this list would be:
  • Extending unemployment benefits ad nauseam
  • Student loan forgiveness
  •  Illegal immigration amnesty (DREAM Act)
  •  Postponement of foreclosures
All currently under consideration by the Obama administration.
A sense of entitlement

The liberal movement amounts to nothing more than making excuses to legitimize a platform of laziness and entitlements.  We see this in the Occupy protests.   Their solution to counter corporate greed is to steal from those that have worked hard to attain their level of wealth, and give to those who refuse to reach such a work ethic. Money for nothing, or entitlement, seems to be a birthright for the left.
Trouble keeping healthy relationships

Too easy.  Does this sound like a group of individuals with relationship issues?
Summary

All of these symptoms seem to define an individual who is unable to express their frustration in a rational manner – hence the glitter bombing.  The Mayo Clinic diagnosis seems to speak to the glitter-loving liberals directly: 
“In order to make yourself feel better, you may react with rage or contempt and efforts to belittle the other person to make yourself appear better.”
Problem being; only you believe these actions make you look better.
In the end, Savage was right.  Liberalism is a mental disorder.  Just not a new one.

Obama Releases Statement Celebrating Roe Vs. Wade

January 22, 2012 at 5:22 pm (Abortion, Anniversary, Healthcare, LifeNews, President Obama, Roe, Wade)

The 39th anniversary of the most controversial Supreme Court ruling of our time has resulted in a celebratory statement from the pro-abortion President.  As Steven Ertelt reminds us, he’s essentially releasing a statement that celebrates the abortion of 54 million babies.

The statement reads (emphasis mine):

As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.  I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right.  While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue- no matter what our views, we must stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant woman and mothers, reduce the need for abortion, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.  And as we remember this historic anniversary, we must also continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

That first section is loaded – “that government should not intrude on private family matters.”  I’m not sure the child would consider government intervention on his or her behalf, an intrusion.  But then, they can’t exactly speak up for their own defense.

Why does the murder of a defenseless child not equate to the murder of any other form of life in the mind of pro-choice fanatics?  Should this not be one area in which government does act?  It is after all, terminating a living being.  If a wife decides that she no longer wants to be with her husband out of convenience, and she terminates his existence, would the government step in?  If abortion is referred to as ‘reproductive freedom’, would the murder of a spouse then be deemed ‘matrimonial freedom’?

And since when is Big Government Obama concerned with intrusion into private family matters anyway?  Forcing the purchase of health care was after all, the climax of his Presidency.

Oh that’s right, this is different. This is a circumstance in which our daughters are being ‘punished with a baby‘.  Too bad, with thinking like that, one has to feel bad for the baby who is punished with that mother.

Ertelt explains why the President’s statement is odd considering the topic:

For most Americans, the day the Supreme Court handed down its decision was a day to mourn — a day to mourn the loss of tens of millions of unborn children — sons and daughters, brothers and sisters lost to a world that values choice over compassion. It was a day to mourn the damage abortion does to women — the medical problems, the mental health issues, the damaging of relationships with friends and family, and the destruction of relationships with God.

Pastor Who Had Laptop Stolen By Occupiers Now Has $12,000 Holy Vessel Stolen

January 22, 2012 at 1:53 pm (Bob, Brashear, Brooklyn, John Ruberry, New York, Occupy Wall Street, Tea Party, Theft, Urination, Vandalism)

Those damn Tea Partiers stole my …  wait, what?

Last week we reported on a pastor who had his $2,400 laptop stolen by the very Occupiers who he had provided shelter.  Seems the pastor still hasn’t learned his lesson – that he is clearly part of the 1%.

Via the New York Post:

There’s no longer room at the inn at a Manhattan church that’s sheltering Occupy Wall Streeters after a holy vessel disappeared from the altar last week.

… Rev. Brashear walked into the church for a morning service to find the 18-inch-diameter bronze basin and lid missing from the baptismal font’s 800-pound base. Holy water — straight from the River Jordan — had been poured from the missing basin insert into the base’s bowl.

He told the occupiers that even when the 100-year-old Upper West Side church extended help to addicts during the 1980s drug scourge, no visitors touched its $12,500 sacramental instrument.

That’s because this brand of degenerates and vandals are more than just addicts – their addicts with a sense of entitlement.
John Ruberry at Marathon Pundit responds to the incident:

The pastor at the church, the Rev. Bob Brashear, still doesn’t get it. He rightly called out the jackals, but dressed it in OWS lingo. “It was like pissing on the 99 percent.” The Post called it a “fire and brimstone message” from Brashear.

Here is my message to Brashear: You should be preaching to the 100 percent.

That would be the percentage that still believes vandalism, theft, and urination are still unacceptable forms of protest.  Normal people in other words.

Why did I bring urination into the mix?  Ruberry reports on another incident at a separate church:

Down in Brooklyn, the Post is also ecumenically reporting that a rabbi has washed his hands of the Occupy movement after he learned that an OWS protester urinated inside a Brooklyn Presbyterian church. “The Park Slope church housing occupiers was desecrated when an occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross,” the rabbi bemoaned in a letter.

But hey, they’re just like the Tea Party…

BREAKING: Legendary Penn State Coach Joe Paterno, Dies at 85

January 22, 2012 at 11:34 am (College Football, Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno, Penn State, Pennsylvania, Scandal, Sexual Abuse)

Less than a year ago, Joe Paterno was going down in the annals of football history as an iron clad legend in the sport.  Today, Paterno passed away shrouded in a cloud of scandal.

Instead of remembering two national championships and a Division I record 409 wins over 46 seasons at Penn State, we will likely remember him as the man who oversaw a sexual abuse scandal that has resulted in 52 counts of child molestation against his former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky.

What will you remember? 409 wins, two titles, or 52 counts?

ESPN reports:

Joe Paterno has died at the age of 85 after experiencing serious complications from lung-cancer treatment.

The health of Paterno, who had fought the disease for two months, had grown progressively worse after he recently broke his pelvis in a fall at his home in State College, Pa.

The family announced his death Sunday shortly after 10 a.m. ET., The Associated Press reported.

Paterno died at State College’s Mount Nittany Medical Center, where he had been undergoing treatment.

Paterno remained connected to a ventilator into Sunday, individuals close to Paterno’s family told The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported the family had communicated to the hospital his wishes not to be kept alive through extreme artificial means.

UPDATE:  CNN has a great video of JoePa’s legacy up on their site.  See below…

UPDATE:  The family has issued a statement…

It is with great sadness that we announce that Joe Paterno passed away earlier today. His loss leaves a void in our lives that will never be filled.

He died as he lived. He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been. His ambitions were far reaching, but he never believed he had to leave this Happy Valley to achieve them. He was a man devoted to his family, his university, his players and his community.

He has been many things in his life — a soldier, scholar, mentor, coach, friend and father. To my mother he was and is her soul mate, and the last several weeks have shown the strength of their love. To his children and grandchildren he is a shining example of how to live a good, decent and honest life, a standard to which we aspire.

When he decided to forego a career in law and make coaching his vocation, his father Angelo had but one command: Make an impact.

As the last 61 years have shown, Joe made an incredible impact. That impact has been felt and appreciated by our family in the form of thousands of letters and well wishes along with countless acts of kindness from people whose lives he touched. It is evident also in the thousands of successful student athletes who have gone on to multiply that impact as they spread out across the country.

And so he leaves us with a peaceful mind, comforted by his “living legacy” of five kids, 17 grandchildren, and hundreds of young men whose lives he changed in more ways than can begin to be counted.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family requests that donations be made to the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania or the Penn State-THON, The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon.
