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.”

Media TV Veteran Admits “We Are a Cancer and There is No Cure”

MSNBC producer Ariana Pekary explained that the reason for her deciding to quit her job was that the mainstream media blocks “diversity of thought” in favor of promoting hysterical voices for ratings and that a TV veteran admitted to her “we are a cancer and there is no cure.”

Pekary, who was an “integral member” of Lawrence O’Donnell’s primetime show, says that the media’s obsession with Trump is actually costing lives because it is preventing reasoned discussions about how to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The primary focus quickly became what Donald Trump was doing (poorly) to address the crisis, rather than the science itself. As new details have become available about antibodies, a vaccine, or how COVID actually spreads, producers still want to focus on the politics. Important facts or studies get buried,” Pekary explained.

The former producer also revealed that a “successful and insightful TV veteran” acknowledged to her that, “We are a cancer and there is no cure,” adding, “But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”

Pekary also highlighted how the very model by which the corporate press is structured guarantees that voices of dissent are silenced in favor of hysterical political extremists, something that has come to fore over the last two months with the media’s relentless promotion of Black Lives Matter narratives.

“The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings,” she wrote.

Pekary’s resignation follows that of former New York Times columnist Bari Weiss, who said she was smeared by her own colleagues as a racist and a Nazi for daring to engage in “wrongthink” by not echoing fringe social justice rhetoric.

$5,000 Reward Offered For Culprit Who Put ‘Trump 2020’ Sticker on Bear’s Collar

Dangerous culprit still on the run.

Facebook/Help Asheville Bears

A $5,000 dollar reward is being offered to identify the culprit who put a ‘Trump 2020’ sticker on a bear’s collar in North Carolina.

Yes, really.

Local activists in Asheville were apparently “outraged” at the sight of the sticker, which was seen on the collar of a black bear.

Sheila Chapman took a photograph of the bear on her North Asheville front porch after noticing the sticker and asserted that such treatment was “cruel and inhuman,” adding that it was “not OK.”

With the dangerous criminal who committed this horrific act still presumably on the run, “Help Asheville Bears” (HAB) is now offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who can identify the suspect.

HAB says that this is not the first time someone has placed a political sticker on a bear in the area. Apparently, the shocking act is part of a disturbing trend.

“Whoever placed the illicit sticker had better get out of moonbattery-addled Asheville,” writes Dave Blount. “If caught, the perpetrator is as likely to get a fair trial as Derek Chauvin.”

Trump: ‘Crazy Nancy’ Pelosi “Slow-Rolling” Coronavirus Aid; Only Interested In Bailing Out Radical Leftists

“They’re not interested in the people.”

President Trump blasted ‘Crazy Nancy’ Pelosi Monday, saying that she and the Democrats have zero interest in the well-being of Americans, and are blocking coronavirus aid in favour of bailing out radical left governors and mayors.

“What the Democrats want, they’re slow-rolling it and all they’re really interested in is bailout money to bail out radical left governors and radical left mayors,” Trump urged during a press conference.

The President pointed to Chicago, Portland, and New York City as cities that the Democrats are intent on bailing out as unrest and violence surge under Democratic leadership there.

“You see what’s going on over there, bail out cities and states who have been poorly run and spent a fortune doing it. They want a trillion dollars.” Trump stated, adding “We’re really not interested in that.”


Alex Jones breaks down the globalist operatives pushing the collapse under the guise of the interest of the people, meanwhile Nancy Pelosi calls those who oppose the elites ‘collateral damage.’

The President added that Pelosi and the Democratic leadership are more intent on aiding their cronies than helping everyday Americans.

“They’re not interested in the people. They’re not interested in unemployment. They’re not interested in evictions,” Trump declared.

Trump vowed to take executive action to prevent evictions if Congress doesn’t fast track the coronavirus relief legislation.

“A lot of people are going to be evicted. But I’m going to stop it because I’ll do it myself if I have to. I have a lot of powers with respect to executive orders. And we’re looking at that very seriously right now,” Trump told reporters.

“I don’t want people to be evicted…When they’re evicted, when they’re thrown out of whatever the place may be, in many cases they go to big shelters,” Trump said.

The President further urged that “This is a pandemic and they go to shelters, number one; they’re thrown out viciously and it’s not their fault. Number two; if they are thrown out they oftentimes will go to a shelter with tremendous numbers of other people, and the virus will spread and we don’t want that.”
