Liberalism: A mental disorder?

I’ve read this statement more times than I care to remember.

‘Liberalism is a mental disorder’

This is directed towards the U.S Democratic Party which are often referred to ask ‘Democ-Rats’, or ‘Libtards’.

The Democratic Party’s ideology surrounds:

Majority:
 •  Modern liberalism
 •  Social liberalism

Factions:
 • Centrism
 •  Conservatism
 • Democratic socialism

Left-wing populism:
 •  Progressivism
 •  Social democracy

So let’s look into what ‘Liberalism’ means and my source will be Wikipedia.

Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed, and equality before the law.

 Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but they generally support:

limited government

• individual rights (including civil rights and human rights)

capitalism (free markets)

democracy

• secularism

• gender equality

racial equality

• internationalism

• freedom of speech

• freedom of the press 

freedom of religion

It seems to me that the people who say that Liberalism is a mental disorder are some of the biggest hypocrites on this planet. They are extremely selective on what’s acceptable and what isn’t.

Most Republican, Trump supporters have no regard for human, or civil rights, or they wouldn’t support Trump’s use of ‘detainment camps‘, or his prejudice towards Arab nations, but when it comes to freedom of speech, and freedom of religion, they fully support that. America was founded on Christianity they claim, but try telling them there’s places for Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs or Buddhists, then they aren’t having it, and many vehemently oppose secularism.

You have to question either the motivation behind the thinking that Liberalism is a mental disorder, or question the mental capacity of such individuals.

The majority of Republicans are devout Jesus worshippers, but at the same time aren’t interested in human rights ie: sexual equality, gender equality and racial equality. Twitter is literally swamped with this mindset, and it’s extremely disturbing that Christians can claim to follow the teachings of Jesus, but disregard the rights of fellow humans. I think the main reason for this is that Christians claim that Liberalism sought to replace state religion and Republicans see this as a huge threat from Satan controlled Atheists.

Here are a examples from today.
