If you have been a listener of Dr. Michael Savage’s “Savage Nation” radio show, you know of one of his famous sayings is “liberalism is a mental disorder.” I would make that more specific in addressing “post-modern liberalism” in order to draw a clear distinction from classical liberalism, a philosophy of governance which I embrace. Post-modern liberalism is also better described as progressive socialism, and we have explained that ideology often here.
Just this week we have seen the rather disturbing interview of one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the avowed democratic socialist, and current darling of the left. All this week, well, all the time, we have witnessed the deranged, unhinged hypocrisy of the progressive socialist left and their media enablers. I have always operated under the maxim learned from my time in the military, “if you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.” Obviously, the progressive socialist left does not subscribe to this theory, and hence, I must humbly submit, Dr. Savage was right.
Here is just another clear and present example of progressive socialist, leftist, lunacy. As reported by the Sacramento Bee:
“San Francisco began registering non-citizens, including undocumented immigrants [illegal immigrants], to register to vote Monday in the November election for the city school board, reported The San Francisco Chronicle. The move follows passage of a 2016 ballot measure by San Francisco voters opening school elections to non-citizens who are over the age of 18, city residents and have children under age 19, reported the publication. “This is no-brainer legislation,” Hillary Ronen, a San Francisco supervisor, told the Chronicle. “Why would we not want our parents invested in the education of their children?” “We want to give immigrants the right to vote,” Norman Yee, also a county supervisor, told KGO. San Francisco became the first city in California to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections following passage of Measure N with 54 percent of the vote after two previous failed tries, reported KTVU. There are concerns that the non-citizen voter registration rolls, which will be open, could be used to target people who entered the U.S. illegally, reported The San Francisco Examiner. “Our immigrants, are they vulnerable? Absolutely,” Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer told the publication. “But in San Francisco we stand strong together.”
Chicago and some Maryland cities also allow non-citizen residents to vote in school board elections, reported KPIX. Several cities in Massachusetts, including Cambridge, Amherst, Brookline and others, have at various times voted to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections, but those moves require legislation from state lawmakers to take effect, reported The Boston Globe.”
Oh boy, I recently read a report that stated 46% of San Francisco residents want to leave the city. After all, who wants to hang out in a city where drug needles, human feces, and astronomical levels of homelessness are on public display? Why live in a place that is elevating the concerns of those here illegally, over legal, law-abiding citizens? Then again, if you have not been paying attention, Deputy Chairman of the DNC, candidate for Minnesota Attorney General, and US Congressman Keith Ellison has stated that “national borders create an injustice for regular people seeking higher wages.” Based upon Ellison’s delusional and idiotic statement, and the actions of San Francisco, there is only one deduction: post-modern liberalism is a mental disorder.
The left in America no longer believes that we have a national sovereignty. They just think America exists as an open land for anyone to come into and reap the benefits . . . taxpayer-funded benefits. How can anyone justify non-citizens being allowed to vote in our elections? Hey, try that down in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and in any country known to man. If you are here in America illegally you are not equal to, on par with, an American citizen. You have broken our laws, and you should not be rewarded for that.The left in America no longer believes that we have national sovereignty.

What the progressive socialist left in America is saying is that they no longer care about the everyday law-abiding, legal American citizen. As a matter of fact, they do not care about America period. They do not respect, or regard, our borders. Now the law enforcement agencies are charged, by law, to secure us, and those borders. How very telling that 34 Democrats voted against supporting the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE), another 133 voted “present,” and only 18 Democrats voted to support the agency on Wednesday. That should tell you all you need to know: the Democrat party wants to win a majority in November, and it does not support a lawful agency created by US statute. That is crazy, and only those who suffer from a mental disorder are crazy.
Where else will we have illegal immigrants voting in local elections? You can bet your bottom dollar that the left will try this even here in Texas. I can certainly see it being proposed in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, and El Paso. Speaking of El Paso, I have spoken with residents there who are fully aware that there are kids who live in Ciudad Juarez who come across, and attend school in El Paso. And to think, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey said that “if voters care about America’s values, they must support Democrats this fall.” Yes, he has a mental disorder, ahh, he is nuts.
The Democrats have even changed their campaign slogan — didn’t know they had one — from “A Better Deal” to “For the People.” That honestly begs the question: for which people? This Democrat party is not about American constitutional values, or principles, and does not appear to stand up for law-abiding Americans. Heck, the “brilliant” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mindlessly stated that capitalism has not always existed, and will not exist for much longer. What a chucklehead. Ever since someone traded one commodity for another, there has been free market capitalism. And what is the alternative, government nationalization of economic production?
Yep, I must agree, and conclude as Dr. Savage has, post-modern liberalism, progressive socialism, is a mental disorder. Now, who among you wants to vote for crazy people?
