There is an interesting discussion going on at Adrienne’s blog over what is causing Leftists to embrace such obviously insane policy positions. Michael Savage, a talk-radio provocateur, coined an expression a few years ago that “liberalism is a mental disorder.”
More accurately, we would suggest here that Leftist positions and behaviors are symptomatic of underlying psychological pathology. This is especially true among members of the Corporate Media. Everything from looking up to Satanist Sally Quinn as a role model to their repeated public tantrums and dissemination of the most ridiculous conspiracy theories, Media personnel are pretty clearly a mentally-unbalanced lot.
At the top levels of the Far Left: the Clintons, Podesta Brothers, and George Soros, for example; power and profit are the motivating factors. They’ve got good rackets going, fueled by payoffs from special interests and a compliant Media which aids and abets their criminal behaviors. But what about the rank-and-file Leftists?
