After reading a recent article posted on Autisable titled “Asperger’s = Atheist?”, it also made me wonder if liberalism, in general, is a mental disorder that can be found on the autism spectrum. By liberals, I don’t necessarily mean people who simply vote Democrat. Rather, I’m referring to leftists who have really lewd, extreme, off-the-wall beliefs. For example, people who worship Obama like he’s their God despite the fact that everything he has done in his 1 1/2 years as president has been a failure, as if they are proud that the failures have taken place (not to mention their only argument supporting him is that anyone who disagrees with him is a ‘racist’). Then there are the people who believe that it’s unjust for companies to grow too large or for people to become too enriched, yet they have no problem with a super large federal government and 90% income tax rates. Then there are the ones who claim the handful of sex scandal cases in the Catholic Church are an abomination and that the practice of Christianity should be limited because of its “discriminatory” practice, like not legalizing gay marriage and abortion. However, they don’t seem to have a problem with Muslims blowing up buildings, terrorizing towns and other countries, beating and killing women that don’t cover themselves in public or sin against Allah and stoning anyone perceived to be a homosexual even by an iota to death. There are other things, such as their belief that humans are equivalent to other animals, yet they are the ones who somehow are capable of destroying the earth as if the earth is fragile; and how they believe illegal aliens and terrorists should have more rights in this country than even actual citizens.
As someone with Aspergers, I would not correlate a relationship between Asperger’s and liberalism. Rather, I would classify liberalism as its own unique mental disorder. Not many people consider liberalism to be an actual mental disorder because it’s never classified or analyzed as such in our wonderful educational institutions. It baffles me though how liberals will not only dissent from common sense, but will hold anyone who disagrees with their crazy world views in high contempt. Okay, any group of people is going to argue in favor of their beliefs because everyone has their own beliefs and is entitled to them, but try to argue with liberals on why they think and believe what they think and believe. If you ask them, for example, what has Obama done that has helped America or why Marxism is an ideal philosophy to follow. They may present reasons for these questions, but they are house-of-cards arguments at best. When you try to present facts to knock down the house-of-cards to get them to provide more convincing answers, they don’t answer those questions. In fact, they try to dodge the question and bring up some stupid irrelevant comment. For example, you want to know from a liberal why Obama is such a great president who is good for America. You even go as far as pointing out facts such as how every policy Obama has created has further damaged the country by continuously running up the deficit, imposing draconian regulations that are meant to punish businesses for being successful and benefit only the federal government, has hurt our relations overseas with our allies, and has considerably weakened our national security. Do you want to know what Obama has done that is so good for this country because the other side, who supports him, must have an answer that is reasonable, right? Wrong! All you’re going to get is some verbiage like “Bush is a warmonger and and you’re a racist if you don’t support Obama!” This isn’t just psychobabble coming from stoned college kids who upkeep blogs on the Internet either; you hear this kind of nonsense from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and MSNBC news anchor Chris Matthews.
The biggest problem is this mental disorder has plagued our educational institutions and our media. Kids are taught daily that America has been the most vile and corrupt country in the history of the world, Christianity should be shunned because Christians are fascists (while Islam is nothing more than a religion of peace), the earth is fragile and humans have been destroying it for the past three generations, capitalism is evil because people become rich and greedy, people who are for securing our borders are racists and should be fined and arrested (as opposed to people who actually enter this country illegally), using corn to fuel cars is an adequate substitute to oil despite the rise in food prices, and sex should be a daily activity encouraged in school by the distribution of condoms.
So, this may have come off as a political speech, but I believe it is more than that. If a group of people have outlandish, extreme, radical views that they are unable to defend by reasoning and logic when challenged, then I do believe that said people have a mental disorder. Of course, I probably wouldn’t be writing this if I didn’t feel it was a major issue. Liberalism has plagued Europe and is plaguing America. The only end result is misery.
