Is Liberalism (a/k/a Progressivism) a Mental Illness.... Case #1

Over the last few years and with increasing frequency, a number of Conservative to Libertarian thinkers have taken to calling Liberalism a mental disease. Until recently, I didn't give their argument much credence.... but three very recent cases strongly suggest that people who display indicia of mental illness are primarily drawn to Liberal/Progressive ideology.

Case #1:

Allan Brauer - Now the former Communications Chair of the Sacramento CA Democrat Party.

In response to a "tweet" issued by a Ted Cruz speechwriter named Amanda Carpenter, Brauer wrote:
@amandacarpenter May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.
Brauer was responding to this general audience Carpenter tweet:
GOP beat gun control, changed Obama's mind on Syria, is holding the line on amnesty. We can defund Obamacare, too!
 Carpenter responded in a general tweet:
Who. Did the head of the Sac Dem Party just wish death on my kids? RT @JHillVA: is @allanbrauer this guy ?
and followed it up with this:
Deserves some unfollows-->RT @allanbrauer: @amandacarpenter May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.
Brauer in his charmless fashion responded with this:
Busy blocking the tapeworms that have slithered out of hellspawn @amandacarpenter's asshole. How's your day so far?

and followed it up with this:
I'm being attacked on Twitter for wishing one of Ted Cruz's pubic lice to experience the pain her boss is inflicting on Americans.

Brauer ultimately "apologized" and Carpenter accepted the "apology," But the damage was done and word of Brauer's depravity spread to his employers who "sought and accepted his resignation,"  commenting that "The comments by our volunteer communications chair are appalling and inexcusable," ...  "No matter what our political disagreements may be, wishing harm is never an acceptable response during heated public debate or any other time."

I give it 3 months before Mr. Brauer is quietly picked up by OFA.

  1. Liberalism is very akin to evil. There are well meaning liberals and I know some of them. They roll in the dung of Progressive educators long enough and begin to believe the lies that they're fed.

    But the true Liberals are genuinely evil.

  2. True liberals are evil. The other ones are stuck in perpetual childhood, never wanting to accept the mantle of responsibility for themselves, much less their families.
