[Pot Calling the Kettle Black Award?]

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."

You don't need to be an activist to be a worthless, pompous retard.

The important principles on which our freedoms were founded can be described collectively as "liberalism".

I was thinking the batshit writer of this article would be the fundie one.

Yeah, I can tell he's completely unbiased.

So in other words, you're insane if you're not as apathetic as this guy. Wow.

If a government isn't meeting my needs, then it's really not doing it's job, is it? I have a need to be kept safe and free, don't I?

As opposed to the lunacy of conservatism, where things stay the same because that's the way they've always been, even when the way things have always been is disgustingly cruel and wrong.

I think there's a word for using the an assumption to prove the same assumption. Escapes me at the moment. Is it 'asshole'?

Professional credentials do not guarantee logic or clear thinking.

Conservative wingnut does not necessarily equal fundie. Where are the references to the Bible or religion? Why is this posted here?

@Maxwell: Fundamentalism can apply to more than religion. It is pretty much a strict adherence to a set of basic principles. It need not be a religion. You can be a fundamentalist conservatard.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

For someone who claims to have a Ph.D, he's certainly a dumb, bigoted fuck.

Yep, you also have psychiatrists that claim homosexuality is a disease.

Until it's accepted by mainstream psychiatry you can go fuck yourself.

Oh, and just to fuck with you, there's proof that being fearful makes you a conservative.

Oh, how dare we want basic freedoms and rights for everybody regardless of social status, gender, religion, race, or sexual orientation.

You just shut the fuck up, you pompous idiot with an imaginary friend.

Doctor Whom

Oh, and another thing, if I may. We need a law stating that the argument "Political disagreement with me is a sign of a mental disorder" constitutes an automatic fail.

The concept of a self-regulating financial industry has recently been proven to be the height of sanity.

Conservatives are frightened children pissing themselves in fear.

Take the beam out of your own eye first, fundie.

I question the mental status of people who say someone has a mental disorder just because they don't like their ideals.

From the article:

"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."

I think I just heard my irony meter explode...and it's 5 miles away in a shop being fixed from last time.

Poor, poor Joe :(

Yeah, you can fuck off back to obscurity now, "Dr" Rossiter.

Mental disorder? Michael Savage, is that you?

Was this Dr Rossiter's work peer reviewed? Yeah I didn't think so either.
