Study: Young White Liberals More Likely To Suffer Mental Health Issues

In 2005, radio talk show host Michael Savage wrote a book called “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.”  The book stayed on the Top 10 New York Times best-seller list for three weeks.  Now, a newly-released study indicates that he was on to something.

According to a study by the Pew Research Center, 46 percent of young white liberals reported being diagnosed with a mental condition, versus only 21 percent of young white conservatives.

Citing Newsmax, Warner Todd Huston tells us:

Broken down by ideological identification to an even greater extent, young white people who identified as “very liberal” were almost one and a half times more likely to report mental health problems than those who identified merely as liberal.

The study also showed that young white females who identified as liberal or very liberal were by significant margins the most likely to report a mental health diagnosis at 56%, compared to 28% of young moderate women and 27% of young conservative women.

A similar disparity, although less extreme, was also found among young white men, with 34% reporting mental health problems, compared with 22% of moderate white males and 16% of conservative white males.

Huston adds:

Zach Goldberg, one of those who helped compile the results of the study, noted that the study was not meant as an ideological attack on leftists. Goldberg insisted, “this is a question that’s underexplored and which may shed light on attitudinal differences towards various social policies.”

“The results are hardly surprising,” Huston concludes.

No, they’re not.  Sadly, we’re seeing the results of liberal insanity unfolding before our eyes every single day.
