Survey Finds People Who Identify as Left-Wing More Likely to Have Been Diagnosed With a Mental Illness

The data speaks for itself.

Published

on

A new survey of more than 8,000 people has found that those who identify with left-wing political beliefs are more likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness.

Ann Coulter’s “liberalism is a mental disorder” catchphrase has become something of a clichéd meme, but the data appears to support it.

Carried out by Slate Star Codex, the online survey collected a wealth of data from respondents about their education, demographic, lifestyle and political views.

The results show that people who occupy the farther left end of the political spectrum are more likely to have been “formally diagnosed with depression, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia.”

In addition, the results show that the highest percentage of respondents (38%) who admit being diagnosed with forms of mental illness also identify politically as Marxists.

In comparison, just 12.1% of conservatives say they have been diagnosed with a mental disorder.

While the survey is by no means scientific, it does give an insight into how disturbed people are more likely to be attracted to fringe leftist beliefs, which in a lifestyle sense usually encourage degeneracy and a lack of moral responsibility.

“It’s not a myth that left-wingers are more mentally ill,” said conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos. “And it’s not a surprise the internet has elevated crazy people with too much time on their hands to a central place in the national discourse. The “social web” is a social fucking catastrophe.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta set off a fake news wave when he reported that a bust of Abe Lincoln was “leaving” the White House, leading many, including Keith Olbermann, to claim it was being stolen.

The item was one of a number of things being removed by members of the Trump administration before Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.

“More stuff (appears to be Abe Lincoln bust) leaving the West Wing this afternoon,” tweeted Acosta alongside an image of a man carrying the bust.

This prompted blue checkmarks on Twitter to have meltdowns, claiming a Trump administration member was stealing the item.

“Sure! Add a little theft to treason,” said Keith Olbermann.

“Now they’re looters on top of everything else?” remarked Markos Moulitsas.

John Aravosis jumped on the tweet to assert that the Trump family was “looting the White House.”

However, as the Independent reports, the bust was not being removed as a personal item.

“The statue will be returned to a museum, as incoming officials generally choose their own items from among national artefacts to decorate the White House during their term,” states the report.

Maybe Acosta should have clarified that, although it doesn’t take much to set off Keith Olbermann, who is prone to routine outbursts, including when he angrily asserted that all Trump supporters should be “prosecuted, convicted, and removed from society.”

Attorney: Trump Impeachment Sets Precedent Presidents Are Responsible For Actions of Their Supporters

Says real impact would be to gut free speech.

Attorney Jonathan Turley has warned that the impending impeachment of Donald Trump over the storming of Capitol Hill sets the precedent that presidents can be impeached for the actions of their supporters.

Top Democrats say they “have the votes” to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump for “inciting an insurrectionist mob” during last week’s incident.

The text of the resolution accuses Trump of “willfully inciting violence against the Government of the United States.”

However, according to attorney Jonathan Turley, Trump’s speech to his supporters before the occupation of the Capitol “does not meet the definition of incitement under the U.S. criminal code” and “would be considered protected speech by the Supreme Court.”

Turley says that the real danger would be to normalize “snap impeachments,” gut free speech and “create precedent for the impeachment of any president who can be blamed for the violent acts of others after the use of reckless or inflammatory language.”

“There was no call for lawless action by Trump. Instead, there was a call for a protest at the Capitol,” he writes.

“Moreover, violence was not imminent; the vast majority of the tens of thousands of protesters present were not violent before the march, and most did not riot inside the Capitol. Like many violent protests we have witnessed over the last four years, including Trump’s 2017 inauguration, the criminal conduct was carried out by a smaller group of instigators. Capitol police knew of the planned march but declined an offer of National Guard personnel because they did not view violence as likely.”

Despite the hysteria that has been generated by the media surrounding the Capitol Hill storming, most analysts say a second attempt at impeaching Trump would ultimately fail, primarily because many lawmakers fear it would just stir up more anger and distract from Joe Biden’s first 100 days as president.
