If you’ve ever had the misfortune to argue with a liberal, you may have often wondered whether they’ve got a screw loose or if something is wrong with their brains. Ordinary things that we take for granted, like logical thought or anticipating the future consequences of various actions, seem to be foreign concepts to many liberals. And now we might know why.
A recent study by Pew Research examined white liberals, moderates, and conservatives and assessed them for mental health issues. It found that conservatives were much less likely to be diagnosed with mental health issues than those of other political orientations. And young white liberal women were among the most likely to be diagnosed with mental health issues.
Among white women aged 18-29, 56.3% of those who identified as liberal were diagnosed with mental health issues, versus 28.4% of moderates and 27.3% of conservatives. When you think about who the drivers are behind much of the political discontent in this country, those figures begin to make sense.
Just think of the women’s marches that took place after President Trump’s election. How many of the participants in those marches were young white women? How many pro-abortion protesters yelling at the marchers at the March for Life are young white women? How many participants at BLM rallies are young white women? They’re everywhere.
In fact, many black people in BLM are getting tired of white liberal women co-opting their movement. There’s a bit of the white savior complex going on there, but there’s a bit of mental illness going on there too, with young white liberal women being so narcissistic nowadays that they just have to be front and center on any and every social justice issue. So the next time you argue with a liberal, especially one who’s a young white woman, just remember that there’s a better than 50/50 chance that she’s mentally unstable.
