“Well, you know the president is getting ready to make an announcement that they’re going to put GPS chips in all the children, so they’re safe. That’s just what the Antichrist is going to do to mark everybody.’”
Are these frightening words the latest warning from Glenn Beck, or one of the other Right Wing fanatics filling the airwaves? Or are they from a paranoid schizophrenic? Hard to tell the difference sometimes, isn’t it?
This time the crazy statement is attributed to the fellow who fired some rifle rounds into the White House last week.
From some reports it seems this guy really is mentally ill.
His mother doesn’t want to accept the evidence he is psychotic, but offers some insight that could help explain why so many conservative Republicans hold on to similar delusional thinking.
She said, ““He might be saying weird stuff that sounds crazy, but that doesn’t mean (he) is crazy. He might be confused and scared.”
Confused and scared. That certainly describes many ordinary Americans who listen to FOX (R), Beck and Limbaugh. Just add some anger into the mix and we get a larger picture of the Republican conservatism being cultivated in the American people.
As we know from a Live Science poll, a large proportion, 24 percent, of Republicans believe Obama may be the antichrist. That’s pretty amusing, seen in the light of Mikey Weiner Savage’ s blatant projection that, “Liberalism is a mental disorder”.
I don’t know, there, Mikey. You’d have to find a lot of liberals who believe a lot more craziness than Righties. Stuff like, “A corporation is a person.” And “Corporate money given to politicians is not corruption, but free speech.” Or “Tax cuts for the rich will trickle down benefits for everyone,” and “Regulations for Wall Street are killing jobs.”
Then according to the poll, there are these Republican indoctrinated beliefs:
38 percent say he wants to take away Americans' right to own guns.
32 percent say he is a Muslim.
29 percent think he wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one world government.
25 percent say he was not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president.
25 percent say he is a domestic enemy that the U.S. Constitutions speaks of.
23 percent say he is a racist.
Not to mention Obama being the antichrist.
Sorry, as loony as the left can appear sometimes, the vast preponderance of delusional thinking and false beliefs belongs to the Right Wing cult. Thanks to their being confused, scared and angered by the Right Wing media machine, they win in mental disorders hands down.
