In case you haven't read it yet

Go read Ace's post: How to Survive in an Age of Rage.  If you need it summed up for you, large swaths of the American political landscape have gone bug-fucking nuts.

In my experience, there is nothing quite so dangerous as an inflated but brittle ego. An inflated ego which is resilient is annoying and dangerous, but, being resilient, it does not really react bigly to threats. It shakes threats off, so it doesn't need to lash out or go on little Nervous Breakdown Picnics out in Ego Protection Park. 
But large brittle egos do. Large egos lash out, and brittle ones -- ones that are easily punctured by pins -- must lash out aggressively, constantly, almost randomly. 
11/9 stole from them the two things most sacred: their sense of superiority and infallibility, and their precious political power over the people they hate. 
And they're reacting rather poorly to that.

I've worked with large, brittle egos before.  He was a classic case of narcissism; completely incapable of thinking about anybody but himself.  Kinda like the Jug-Eared Fuck himself, Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck.

Ace is dead on.

And yes, Liberalism is a mental disorder.  Which is why you have so many personality disorders among the Social Justice Warriors of the Left.

A 2016 UK survey found that, since 1990, rates of depression and anxiety among the young have increased by 70%, while the American Counseling Association has reported a “rising tide of personality disorders among millennials.” 
That such disorders appear to be an acute problem with this generation may be an unintended outcome of the unprecedented experiment conducted in the 1990s and 2000s by progressive parents.
