Some RWers have become so mentally ill they are opposing preventing disease and death in the USA

Republicanism and conservativism have morphed from ideologies into a mental illness. Go to the CDC or state Health Department Public Health Facebook account. There you will see groups of Republicans and Right-Wingers being angry and mocking any efforts to reign in or control either Covid or Monkeypox. I mean, what sort of sick, demented person WANTS to see more illness and death? Our nation needs to deal with these monsters before they destroy our nation and possibly the world.

4. Conflating political ideologies with mental illness is ableist and a bad road to go down.

Being irrational and callous is not a mental illness.

6. Irrational and callous no

Attacking the capitol and causing death and serious injury. Definitely over the edge. trump now equates himself with Jesus Christ. He/they have a messiah complex.

10. It can be irrational, ignorant, callous, cruel, calculated, whatever, but on its own does not mean

someone has a mental illness.

9. It's a bad road to go down, but we should go light on judging people as "ists"

Or being scolds (as in this post for example).

5. That cannot be. Republicans are never mentally ill. They are trying to establish a new normal

with themselves, as always, on top exploiting everyone else.

16. And it isn't just health that they are opposing. They are opposing any decent economic aid to

enable the Economy to keep powering forward, but the GOP thugs shoot down such efforts, for they want to bring everybody down, put the Economy into a tailspin just so they can ride the tailwinds into control of Congress again. They'll bring down the entire Country for party.

This alone should tell you enough about whom to vote for. A party that wishes harm and ill-will on others certainly does not deserve to be in existence or even be the dog catcher/other elected offices.

Folks keep blaming mental illness. It isn't mental illness to act in the despicable manner that they have done. It's simply just an extension of their hate, their racism, their hot air in trying to come up w/ anything to deflect and counter the onslaught of the Democratic bulldozer of progress.
