Kirsten Powers: Liberals' Dark Ages


Welcome to the Dark Ages, Part II. We have slipped into an age of un-enlightenment where you fall in line behind the mob or face the consequences.

How ironic that the persecutors this time around are the so-called intellectuals. They claim to be liberal while behaving as anything but. The touchstone of liberalism is tolerance of differing ideas. Yet this mob exists to enforce conformity of thought and to delegitimize any dissent from its sanctioned worldview. Intolerance is its calling card.

Each week seems to bring another incident. Last week it was David and Jason Benham, whose pending HGTV show was canceled after the mob unearthed old remarks the brothers made about their Christian beliefs on homosexuality. People can't have a house-flipping show unless they believe and say the "right" things in their life off the set? In this world, the conservative Tom Selleck never would have been Magnum, P.I.

POLL: Is Common Core indoctrination or education?

This week, a trail-blazing woman was felled in the new tradition of commencement shaming. International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde withdrew from delivering the commencement speech at Smith College following protests from students and faculty who hate the IMF. According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, this trend is growing. In the 21 years leading up to 2009, there were 21 incidents of an invited guest not speaking because of protests. Yet, in the past five-and-a-half years, there have been 39 cancellations.

Don't bother trying to make sense of what beliefs are permitted and which ones will get you strung up in the town square. Our ideological overlords have created a minefield of inconsistency. While criticizing Islam is intolerant, insulting Christianity is sport. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is persona non grata at Brandeis University for attacking the prophet Mohammed. But Richard Dawkins describes the Old Testament God as "a misogynistic … sadomasochistic … malevolent bully" and the mob yawns. Bill Maher calls the same God a "psychotic mass murderer" and there are no boycott demands of the high-profile liberals who traffic his HBO show.

The self-serving capriciousness is crazy. In March, University of California-Santa Barbara women's studies professor Mireille Miller-Young attacked a 16-year-old holding an anti-abortion sign in the campus' "free speech zone" (formerly known as America). Though she was charged with theft, battery and vandalism, Miller-Young remains unrepentant and still has her job. But Mozilla's Brendan Eich gave a private donation to an anti-gay marriage initiative six years ago and was ordered to recant his beliefs. When he wouldn't, he was forced to resign from the company he helped found.

Got that? A college educator with the right opinions can attack a high school student and keep her job. A corporate executive with the wrong opinions loses his for making a campaign donation. Something is very wrong here.

As the mob gleefully destroys people's lives, its members haven't stopped to ask themselves a basic question: What happens when they come for me? If history is any guide, that's how these things usually end.

Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the newest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual ofMental Disorders), it certainly is. The manual identifies a new mentalillness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an“ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptomsinclude questioning authority, negativity, defiance,argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

The DSM-IV is the manual used by psychiatrists to diagnose mental illnesses and, with each new edition, there are scores of new mentalillnesses. Are we becoming sicker? Is it getting harder to be mentallyhealthy? Authors of the DSM-IV say that it’s because they’re betterable to identify these illnesses today. Critics charge that it’sbecause they have too much time on their hands.

New mental illnesses identified by the DSM-IV include arrogance, narcissism, above-average creativity, cynicism, and antisocialbehavior. In the past, these were called “personality traits,” but nowthey’re diseases.

And there are treatments available.

All of this is a symptom of our over-diagnosing and overmedicating culture. In the last 50 years, the DSM-IV has gone from 130 to 357mental illnesses. A majority of these illnesses afflict children.Although the manual is an important diagnostic tool for the psychiatricindustry, it has also been responsible for social changes. The rise inADD, bipolar disorder, and depression in children has been largelybecause of the manual’s identifying certain behaviors as symptoms. AWashington Post article observed that, if Mozart were born today, hewould be diagnosed with ADD and “medicated into barren normality.”

According to the DSM-IV, the diagnosis guidelines for identifying oppositional defiant disorder are for children, but adults can just aseasily suffer from the disease. This should give any freethinkingAmerican reason for worry.

The Soviet Union used new “mental illnesses” for political repression. People who didn’t accept the beliefs of the Communist Partydeveloped a new type of schizophrenia. They suffered from thedelusion of believing communism was wrong. They were isolated,forcefully medicated, and put through repressive “therapy” to bringthem back to sanity.

When the last edition of the DSM-IV was published, identifying the symptoms of various mental illnesses in children, there was a jump inthe diagnosis and medication of children. Some states have laws thatallow protective agencies to forcibly medicate, and even make it apunishable crime to withhold medication. This paints a chilling picturefor those of us who are nonconformists.

Although the authors of the manual claim no ulterior motives but simply better diagnostic practices, the labeling of freethinking andnonconformity as mental illnesses has a lot of potential for abuse. Itcan easily become a weapon in the arsenal of a repressive state.

Manual Labels Free Thinkers as Mentally Ill

Author: Brian D. Hill

It is now confirmed by USWGO News that the DSM-IV-TR Manual labels free thinkers, non conformers, civil disobedient advocates, those thatquestion authority, and people considered hostile toward the government(aka Oath keepers and local militias) as mentally ill with the illnesstitled “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.

It was reported on October 8 2010 from OffTheGrid News that anybody who is disobedient, defiant, a free thinker, oreven considered hostile toward authority was to be labeled bypsychiatrists as 'Mentally Ill'.

Now I have got my hands on a ebook version of the year 2000 version of the 'Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-IV-TRFourth Edition (Text Revision) By the American Psychiatric Associationversion DSM-TV-TR (The non TR Version was said to be older and so I gotthe newer one which had the information that Off The Grid News warnedabout).

Now as I search up the keywords “oppositional defiant disorder” on adobe reader I found exactly what Off The Grid News was talking about.So it is now Confirmed basically that anyone who disobeys authority oreven questions authority is now considered mentally ill and can bethrown in a prison-like mental institution under tax payers dollars.

So lets just get to the basics of what this is talking about for those that don't exactly understand what this is saying:

So now according to the ebook it states that:

The essential feature of Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a recurrent pattern of negativistic,
defiant, disobedient. and hostile behavior toward authority figures thatpersists
for at least 6 months

So in other words if a student gives out 9/11 truth fliers and a teacher says "You don't have a Constitutional right to give out fliersgood buddy" then non compliance is considered hostile or disobedient.Also if I am with the Oath Keepers that refuse to obey unlawful ordersfrom authorities then that also fits them and me as disruptive andhostile towards authority. If the psychiatrists use the ODD illness onregular adults then I am sure many disgruntled tax paying Americans andthose that no longer consent to be governed would be forcefullymedicated, forced to accept being a slave to society, or stay in amental prison institution complex for the rest of their days. That seemsto be where this manual is getting at according to the fact I was ableto obtain the full copy of the psychiatric manual.

Negativistic and defiant behaviors are expressed by persistent Stubbornness, resis·
tance to directions, and unwillingness to compromise, give in, ornegotiate with
adults or peers. Defiance may also include deliberate or persistenttesting of limits,
usually by ignoring orders, arguing, and failing to accept blame formisdeeds. Hostility
can be directed at adults or peers and is shown by deliberately annoyingothers
or by verbal aggression (usually without the more serious physicalaggression seen
in Conduct Disorder).

So in other words it is okay to compromise with those that commit treason to this country and those that disobey their Oath to theConstitution. The day we start accepting and compromising with thosethat wish to take away our freedoms then that is the path to startlosing all of our freedoms and rights for good. Also this manual speaksagainst any anti-social behavior so that means that if your not in aorganized religion, not being social enough in society, and may haveviewpoints that are unpopular then you will also be labeled as havingODD.

Defiance may also include deliberate or persistent testing of limits,
usually by ignoring orders, arguing, and failing to accept blame formisdeeds

So if I was a active duty soldier and was told to confiscate peoples guns, assassinate American citizens, and start silencing dissent and Irefuse those orders plus argue with the commander in chief regarding theillegal orders then that makes me mentally ill and the Unconstitutionaltreasonous monsters the hero.

So it is now confirmed that psychiatrists will start targeting brave people like George Washington, anti Federal Reserve activists,activists, and even those against tyranny with mental illnesses such as“oppositional defiant disorder” as we head into more of a MilitaryDictatorship where freedom does not exist and all functions of societymust function like a cold hard machine and any who feel the need to beaway from this machine society will not be tolerated by the Police Stateminions and will either be killed or pumped up with so much drugs thatthe person will feel like a zombie.

Also what are free thinkers anyways, Free thinkers are those that feel they should have the right to live the way they choose freely aslong as they don't harm anybody, don't harm the persons property, anddon't harm other peoples rights. A free thinker is a person thatbelieves they should have the rights to think freely without any risk ofpersecution.

These are the full list of who all will be targeted by this new disorder created by the American Psychiatric Association:

  1. Free Thinkers - Because they get in the way of the police state and become a obstacle to authority
  2. Non conformers - Because they will cause civil disobedience which will make things harder on authorities
  3. Oath Keepers - Because they will actively refuse any orders from higher ups to shoot American citizens, confiscate Americans guns whenthis action conflicts with the 2nd amendment, follow illegal orders akaorders that conflict with the Constitution and the laws legally passed.Oath keepers teach people to be disobedient to any authority that breaksthe Constitution.
  4. Highly creative artists - Because they are wasting time in the police state society and so they must also work like clockwork to be agood slave in society or risk being thrown in a mental institution.
  5. Anyone that questions authority - Because the authority is god and anybody that questions authority must be a troublemaker that wishes todestabilize a society and commit acts of terrorism.

So there we have it the American Psychiatric Association is putting in their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-IVseries that free thinkers, civil disobedient advocates, and Oath keepersare all mentally ill that are anti-social and may cause behaviorproblems in our modern society.

The Constitution is at risk again as the fascists keep finding ways to indoctrinate the youth and finding new ways to make people conform tothe new Unconstitutional ways of society. We are being incrementallyprepared to accept the new treasonous Unconstitutional takeover.
