“Believe the science” they always say. Ok.
It has been claimed that left-wingers or liberals (US sense) tend to more often suffer from mental illness than right-wingers or conservatives. This potential link was investigated using the General Social Survey cumulative cross-sectional dataset (1972-2018). A search of the available variables resulted in 5 items measuring one's own mental illness (e.g., ”Do you have any emotional or mental disability?”). All of these items were weakly associated with left-wing political ideology as measured by self-report, with especially high rates seen for the “extremely liberal” group. These results mostly held up in regressions that adjusted for age, sex, and race. For the variable with the most data (n = 11,338), the difference in the mental illness measure between “extremely liberal” and “extremely conservative” was 0.39 d. Temporal analysis showed that the relationship between mental illness, happiness, and political ideology has existed in the GSS data since the 1970s and still existed in the 2010s. Within-study meta-analysis of all the results found that extreme liberals had a 150% increased rate of mental illness compared to moderates. The finding of increased mental illness among left-wingers is congruent with numerous findings based on related constructs, such as positive relationships between conservatism, religiousness and health in general.
Here’s a cute scientific graphs on the subject. Pretty clear that the left‘s mental illnesses far outweigh those in the center and on the right:
Now let’s break it down by gender (don’t worry though, lefty women are just as insane):
WOW! Left leaning men are screwed up! We can confirm this via a recent experience, as the head of Mom-at-Arms was recently attacked by a far left anti-gun wacko. Who the hell says this kind of shit?!?!?!?
Crazy John has the eyes of a psycho (also known as “Manson eyes”):
And as mentioned earlier (in case you didn’t open the link), the left leaning women:
These are the people that want NORMAL people disarmed. They are mentally ill.
We are 100% against censorship, but when you bring up the idea of one of our children having a funeral for our activism in Individual and constitutional rights, we’ll report it and get you suspend for spewing your crap that can be taken as a legitimate threat. Twitter even aided with us on this one (after a little push and shove with them):
