Your Thoughts Welcome: Why Does The Left Coddle The Mentally Ill?
Stacy McCain, who is Good Crazy, comments on those who are truly Crazy:
…let’s talk about the fact that for decades, liberals have tried to convince us that the mentally ill are victims of society’s unfair prejudice. If only we were more compassionate and understanding, liberals say, we could alleviate the suffering of these pathetic nutcases. Yet these pleas for compassion and understanding have an effect of blinding us to the fact that mentally ill people may pose genuine risks to public safety. Think about the Creepy Little Weirdo who committed the Sandy Hook massacre. Think about the Creepy Little Weirdo who committed the Isla Vista massacre. It was after Gus Deeds stabbed his father, Virginia state Sen. Creigh Deeds, in November 2013, that I put it bluntly: Crazy People Are Dangerous. And since then we have seen numerous stories that confirm this basic truth, including the German co-pilot who killed 150 people when he crashed a plane into a mountain.
Every time we see this kind of story — the murderous lunatic with a known history of mental illness — the media goes into hand-wringing mode, reporting on the “warning signs” that were overlooked before the kook committed his atrocity, yet at the same time striving not to stigmatize the mentally ill. It’s important not to hurt the delicate self-esteem of the deranged, the demented and the disturbed, you see….
I have often wondered why the Left is so extremely and recklessly compassionate when it comes to the mentally ill, to the point where the non-deranged now have to live in fear of those walking among them. —And God forbid, you ever try to have one one of them locked-up for terrorizing yourself, your family, or your community: you will be called many things, ‘heartless’ and ‘mean’ being the least offensive.
But why has the Left In America been championing the ‘rights’ of the mentally ill staring since around the 1930’s? Why have they been so passionate, so uncompromising, and so persistent about it?
Could it be that, before the Despotic decade of FDR, it was the Left who where the leading advocates of Eugenics? Could it be that they also during that time were the leaders in the movement to make Birth Control legal and target the immigrant and Black communities so they wouldn’t breed so many ‘sub-humans’? Did the Left In America suffer from such overwhelming Guilt that it went from one extreme to the other?
On the thin surface, it may seem that way, but the Left’s relentless and obsessive push to increase Abortions destroys that argument, especially when you discover the fact that it is still Blacks and now ‘Hispanics’ who they are targeting.
So then: having established that the Modern Left remains as cruel and as cold as their ancestors, I am still left wondering just why they have picked-up and run with this cause.
Could it be that they want to sow Chaos in Society, that by letting the mentally ill roam among us at will the Left knows the result will be detrimental to Ordered Liberty? Is this all part of the plan of the Leftist Masterminds to destroy American Society, so that they can then ‘fundamentally transform’ it?
Your thoughts would be very much appreciated.
