Doctor Heal thyself
Youtube clip: Just another example of the tolerance of the Left from Janeane Garafalo and Rosie O’Donell. Notice that these people actually believe they are mentally superior to others, yet refuse to debate anyone who does not share their views.
I always find it amusing when distinguished members of the Left characterize members of the Tea Party as hateful or paranoid. Generally, they wind up showing their own hate and paranoia in the process. Just take the case of this blogger in “Psychology Today”, as he depicts us and our supposed mental illness:
These tea-party folks seem to most liberals-well, to most of us who live in the “reality community,” or, as I like to call it, “reality”-like crazy types
Well, not only is that pretty poorly written, but what the heck is the “reality community”? Does Kate Gosselin also hate the Tea Party?
Dr Michael Bader then goes on to state his true “empathy” for the Tea Party:
I hate these folks but I also understand them. And, well, uh, I also empathize with them. They share the same psychology as the paranoid patients I treat every day. The only difference is that the paranoid beliefs of the tea-party movement are political while those in my consulting room are of a more personal nature.
Hmm, you hate us? How sad, because we don’t hate you. In fact, we don’t even know who you are. One has to wonder what sort of circles one has to run in to gain access to being a blogger on “Psychology Today”, but I guess Leftism must be a big part of it.
Well first of all, to be “paranoid” in the same way as a patient in a mental hospital is, one must also consider their beliefs to be delusions, no? So what exactly are the delusions of the Tea Party? Lets examine this further:
1. Global Warming is a scam by some people to make money.
Lets ask Al Gore, who has earned 500 million dollars by selling practically meaningless “Carbon credits”. And now, despite the East Anglia/IPCC scandal, and Dr Phil Jones admission that “There has been no substantive Global Warming in 15 years…” it seems that this is hardly a delusion. It is fact.
2. Barack Obama is a Socialist who wants to confiscate large portions of the US economy.
Wow, this is hard one to prove. Well, not really–the fact is that via the stimulus bill we have not gained a single job, and also did not do much to save Banks or 2 out of 3 of United States auto companies. What was accomplished? The Govt took control of some banks and auto companies, and this is in line with Marxism. A delusion? Hardly. Socialists find ways to take over industry, they either demonize it out of business, or they take it outright.
3. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are acting like Dictators.
Closed door sessions to produce a 2700 page Healthcare bill, exclusion of Republicans, ignoring the public will, and using reconciliation on a non-budgetary bill; If this isn’t acting like a Dictator, I don’t know what is. Do they need to ask for martial law?
The accusations of Dr Bader are hilarious. So esconced are his type as to have an Ivory tower superiority that I would hate to think he would also apply to his patients, but that he probably does. He strikes out at a majority of Americans who happen to disagree with his Leftist views, and assumes that we are the sick ones?
A good example of the the true mental illness of the Left is Hollywood. It’s king? Sean Penn of course.
Penn recently angrily defended Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, for well, being a dictator:
“Every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it, and accept it” said Penn, winner of two Best Actor Academy Awards. “And this is mainstream media, who should — truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies.”
Only a relatively stupid person such as Sean Penn would say completely opposite remarks in the same statement. Basically, that we should be jailed for saying a Dictator is jailing people. In most minds this would be easily seen as the sign of confusion, but it is old hat for Penn, who recently said this about the “haters”:
“Do I hope that those people die screaming of rectal cancer? Yeah. You know, but I’m not going to spend a lot of energy on it.”
Lol, I love it. First he says he wants people jailed for exercising their 1st Amendment right to free speech, then he wishes everyone who disagrees with him to “die screaming of rectal cancer”.
Basically Sean, I think you already make them feel like they have rectal cancer.
