In my new book, Turn Right At Lost: Recalculating America, I explore the mass media and how over the past five decades much of it has abandoned journalistic impartiality for self-righteous, agenda driven propaganda, pushing the progressive worldview that America is greedy, and that only a globalist statism will bring about a socialist utopia. They do this by consistently painting literary portraits of conservatives, with an Orwellian distortion of the language, that slanders their policies, ambitions and personal profiles.
In my book, I note that our country is suffering from an epidemic of apathy and narcissism, and that the Commander-In-Chief, President Obama is the poster boy for this national dyspepsia.
David Kupelian, World News Daily's managing editor recently wrote about this:
“During the Obama administration we have witnessed, non-stop, the modus operandi of the left, wherein those who through monumental deceit have conspired to transform Judeo-Christian America, upend her Constitution and impose an alien new system of governance and morality upon her, have the audacity to accuse the traditionally minded American middle class, which just wants its country back, of being ignorant, deranged and dangerous.
“Psychologists call this ‘projection,’ where one person or group literally projects its own wrongs onto another. Thus, for decades, the left – which throughout the 1900s gave the world its bloodiest century in history – has been busy denouncing and ‘diagnosing’ conservatives and Christians,” he said.
“Those who complain their once-great country is being overrun with illegal immigrants are branded ‘xenophobic,’ a pathologizing label implying one has a phobia. Opponents of radically redefining marriage are ‘homophobic,’ a made-up pathologizing label. Those objecting to Islamist subversion of the U.S. are ‘Islamophobic,’ another made-up pathologizing label. Same with ‘biphobia,’ for people who don’t like to be around bisexuals, and ‘transphobia,’ for people uncomfortable around transgendered people.
On the contrary, notes Kupelian, a recent survey found Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to suffer from a number of mental disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, Asperger’s/autism, OCD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, narcissistic personality disorder, anorexia and bulimia.
“Ironically – almost comically – the most oft-cited armchair diagnosis of Donald Trump is narcissism,” Kupelian said. “Really? After eight years of Barack Obama, whose behavior as president matches perfectly the clinical diagnosis for narcissism, now his (Obama's) diehard supporters are going to try to make that stick to Trump?"
When the left starts pointing fingers, note who is pointing, because with few exceptions, they are doing exactly what they accuse their opponents of doing.
