NY Post – A Florida woman took Trump Derangement Syndrome to an extreme level – stabbing herself repeatedly in the abdomen and telling cops, “I’m tired of living in Trump’s country.”
Police found the unidentified 46-year-old woman outside her home in Palmetto on Sunday with blood all over her legs, hands, and face, according to The Smoking Gun, which obtained the police report. The woman lifted her shirt and cops saw “three stab wounds on [her] stomach that were still bleeding.”
EMS personnel rushed the woman to a local hospital “under trauma alert.” After an evaluation, a cop concluded that there was a “substantial likelihood” that she “will cause bodily harm to herself and/or others.” The officer then recommended that the woman be involuntarily admitted to a mental health treatment facility.
Wow – this is quite serious to be so worked up about politics that one would cause harm to themselves. A clear case of a phenomenon called Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).
TDS is a derogatory term for criticism or negative reactions to United States President Donald Trump that are alleged to be irrational and have little regard towards Trump’s actual positions or actions taken. The origin of the term is traced to political columnist and commentator Charles Krauthammer, a psychiatrist, who originally coined the phrase Bush derangement syndrome in 2003 during the presidency of George W. Bush.
Psychology Today – has identified TDS as an actual phenomenon to be dealt with. Well-known writer Bernard Goldberg gives supposed behavioral examples of TDS among Trump’s political opponents, including fainting, vomiting, students retreating to “safe spaces” and others demanding “therapy dogs.” Political commentator Justin Raimondo focuses on opinions, language, and cognition, writing in the LA Times that “sufferers speak a distinctive language consisting of hyperbole [leading to] a constant state of hysteria … the afflicted lose touch with reality.”
Scot Adams – last year did a podcast on this subject entitled: “Why Trump Derangement Syndrome is so Strong.” It gives a little sanity around this phenomenon – on both sides liberals and conservatives. You can listen to it here:
Seriously, the left has lost their minds. We can see how this has played out in the recent Trump impeachment hearings. When you think about it honestly, Republicans have shifted little in their political positions. Instead, the left under the Democrats, have shifted far to the left – see Gallup study here.
So when we say going far left is dangerous, this post proves it. But to our conservative friends, we should not cheer this. The dangerous leftist can not only harm themselves they can harm society overall. So we need to do what we can to help our fellow Americans through this unfortunate mental illness.
Please pass this post to a liberal in an honest effort to help them.
