Acclaimed Psychiatrist: Liberals "Politically Mad"

By John W. Lillpop

Dr. Lyle Rossiter, an acclaimed and veteran psychiatrist, has confirmed what many lay people have suspected: Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Excerpts from a complete article about Dr. Rossiter can be found at including the following:

"WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder."

"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr.
Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness."

"Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

Those who would instinctively disregard Rossiter's claims as the product of a mad man himself need to know that, "Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to 'the vast right-wing conspiracy,'" per the WND report.

The report continues, "For more than 35 years he has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago."

Clearly, Dr. Rossiter is on to something!
