Yes comrade, classic Soviet technique of smearing political adversaries as mentally ill. Why bother with an exchange of idea when the other side is deranged? Compromise is not just unwise with the Trump supporter, it is impossible due to their mental defects.

The OP attempts to skirt the Goldwater rule barring mental health professionals from analysis of public officials they have not personally examined by attacking Trump supporters instead of Trump. It's still the corruption of the mental health professionals into partisan political prostitutes.

Why would anyone with any hope of credibility publish an opinion piece such as this without disclaiming it as strictly opinion?

Given their extreme devotion and unwavering admiration for their highly unpredictable and often inflammatory leader.

Lie number 1. But it only gets worse.


The piece is so bad it's actually worth a skim for the comedy value.

So much for the "analysis" portion of this piece, the whole thing is simply the biases of the author on display. And a list of literature that speaks about each of the five "factors" with no correlation to any persons studied or interviewed.
It's really not even an "opinion" piece, simply a hit piece.

My favorite part of it is this:

Acknowledgments [TOP]

The author has no support to report.
Yeah, no chit!

As usual your incurious mind and lack of attention to detail leaves you with egg on your face. Had you actually read your own article you would have seen that it contains a link to the PDF and HTML of the "analysis". And you'd actually have to read it to see list of literature cited in it. Swooosh right over your head it went.

Add your own speculation and conjecture to an article filled with the same.

Can't think of a way to defend the hit piece so let's play pretend.

Yeah it was noted as such from the get go. And I think you mean turn off our laughter, because that's all this "analysis" elicited from me. Looks like I'm not alone.

Putting aside your projection, such an "analysis" would always elicit derision by me, regardless who it was aimed at. And we won't even go into the so called ethics of any mental health professional making diagnosis from afar. And if they did so about a patient they had consulted their ethics (lack thereof) again would be exposed. Might as well call this the Doctor Phill approach. And of course he's not actually a doctor.

I guess the reason you offered that weak projection (read fallacious appeal) was to try to excuse this subject. Nice try, no cigar.

I've noticed number 4 quite a bit whenever I engage members on minority topics.
