Leftists claiming conservatives are insane, again

individ: Academic Poison: The long history of Marxists calling anti-Leftists mentally ill

Well in the grand tradition of the Soviet Union, Marxist professors want to claim that anyone who disagrees with them, is insane - and no doubt should be sent to a re-education camp.

I think we should get someone to do a study on why those on the left are pathologically incapable of accepting responsibility for their own health and welfare, and insist that the government take care of them from cradle to grave. I would say that this indicates an obsessive unwillingness to grow up, and take the responsibilities of an adult in this society.

They also have an irrational conviction that every action taken by the United States in a foreign policy arena, to be evil.

The list of conditions goes on

(I think this aught to be good for at least 1 PhD thesis.)</sarcasm>

People are entitled to have their own opinions, but as Individ points out, "I do not think someone is mentally ill just because they disagree with me."

Update: Monday, February 28, 2005

Apparently they don't understand sarcasm at The Sidshow (a UK blog - who knew) even when I include an "end sarcasm" html tag in the text.

In response to an article about lefty researchers ACTUALLY claiming anti-leftists are crazy, I - tongue, firmly inserted in cheek - suggest that we get some folk's to study why the left is insane. (I guess the last sentence in the original post doesn't translate into the Queen's English.) And for every person on the right who refers to Moonbats on the left, there is someone on left referring to Right Wing Nut Jobs. (We on the right have for the most part embraced the term wingnut, because name calling doesn't really get anyone anywhere - that and it's funny.)
