Dr. Sanity accurately diagnoses the MoonBat Left June 13, 2006Posted by Administrator in Cultural Pessimism, Liberal Hypocrisy, Politics, Smart People.
I think she is going to have to be not only blogrolled, but added to the Links/Orgs-heads straight list.
In this article, she suggests that agitprop lefties are suffering from an obvious delusional disorder. While I have suggested something similar in a rather tongue-in-cheek fashion, the good Doctor here gave me serious pause:
What’s interesting to me is how, after each successive loss, they (KosKids and the like) convince themselves that it was actually a win. Even today, they comfort themselves with the notion that the 2000 and 2004 election was “stolen” from them.
It was “stolen” because they seem to believe that they own the Presidency.
The most recent loss in San Diego is also celebrated by the losers as some sort of win in their minds.
I once asked a paranoid patient of mine why he imagined that he kept getting hospitalized regularly. This was a patient who was constantly accusing others of attempting to hurt him; and whose behavior was so outrageous in public, that the police had to bring him to the psychiatric emergency room for evaluation. There he would invariably be placed on an involuntary committment as a danger to himself and others. Needless to say, he never took his medicines after the committment ended, and the entire cycle would start up all over again.
He responded to my question by asserting that there was obviously a conspiracy involved (the detail of which were amazingly specific); and that the people in this conspiracy were clearly trying to silence him and keep him from taking his “proper place in society.” He was willing to discuss this with me–even though I was part of that conspiracy–as he showed me his detailed notes about the various connections within that conspiracy.
So, what is your “proper place in society?” I asked.
I should be a full professor by now, replied the individual (who dropped out of college about 25 years earlier); I should be wealthy–possibly even the dean of a well-known university. I should have an expensive car and a beautiful home….
The litany went on for some time; as he cataloged, one by one, all the perks that should have been his–if only the conspiracy against him could be exposed.
I think this patient has a lot in common with today’s Democrats; and his grandiosity and unwillingness to take responsibility for his plight, should particularly resonate with its extreme left wing.
Neither have a clue as to how to actually achieve their dreams of social power. They just assume whatever they desire should be automatically conferred upon them without any ideas, plans, or efforts on their part. And when their sense of entitlement is frustrated, it must be because there are evil and powerful people who are keeping them from what rightly belongs to them.
You really need to read the whole thing.
