Peer-Reviewed Journal -Current Psychology: Left-Wing Extremism Linked to Toxic, Psychopathic Tendencies and Narcissism

Just confirming what we already knew-


Left-wing extremism is linked to toxic, psychopathic tendencies and narcissism, according to a new study published to the peer-reviewed journal Current Psychology.

“Based on existing research, we expected individuals with higher levels of left-wing authoritarianism to also report higher levels of narcissism,” the authors wrote.

As result of the new data, study authors Ann Krispenz and Alex Bertrams have coined a new term for such psychological behavior: the “dark-ego-vehicle principle.”

“According to this principle, individuals with dark personalities — such as high narcissistic and psychopathic traits — are attracted to certain forms of political and social activism which they can use as a vehicle to satisfy their own ego-focused needs instead of actually aiming at social justice and equality,” they told PsyPost.

“In particular, certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.”

The study on left-wing authoritarianism also showed that many times they do not practice what they so loudly preach.

Social justice is often used as a guise for these activists to behave unhinged, the research noted.



Do you know how many leftist racists I know?

All of them.

  1. Current Psychology is hereby deemed extremist misinformation.

  2. Does a Crazy Alert make a sound if no one can hear it?
    The media will do its best to discredit and bury it because they are a BIG part of the problem!
    Going after the Krazies is one thing.
    Going after the Media is another, but doing one without the other is pointless.

  3. Tell us something we don’t know. Michael Savage coined the phrase “Liberalism is a mental disease” years ago.

  4. Rush said it 30 years ago; Liberalism is a mental disorder.

  5. Ann Krispenz and Alex Bertrams did not kill themselves.

  6. “Left-Wing Extremism Linked to Toxic, Psychopathic Tendencies and Narcissism”

    …as apt a description of the modern Democrat as I’ve ever seen, outside of THIS one from the Bible…

    “21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
    Romans 1:21-36

  7. Ira Einhorn killed his girlfriend and kept her body in a trunk in his residence. Lefties want him defied as progenitor of Earth Day.

    We have all met or seen a barking mad leftist. Machete to the neck? Shot up a school, office, nightclub, grocery store, name a venue and a leftist has likely shot one like it up.

    The entirety of identity politics rests on the concept of victimhood and victims of the right sort, according to leftist ideology, are justified in doing random or targeted violence to whomever because of their status as victims.

    Silence is violence, goes the leftist trope, also words are violence. Both are permissions for leftist ‘victims’ to do actual violence to others based on others speech or lack of sufficient speech.

    The worst of them are human shaped alien animals walking among us, with no human feeling, no connection to the human race beyond the shape and operation of their bodies.

    Spawn of Satan, handmaids of the devil, the living face of evil, are some apt descriptors.

  8. I’ve never been super religious enough to preach “spawn of Satan” or scripture, but you won’t catch me saying you’re wrong either… especially when we see the absolute chaos and mayhem going on around us today!!

  9. That explains the endless stream of psyops coming out of Washington.

  10. No shit. The funny thing is that this finding actually comes as a surprise to many people.

  11. TRF @ 8:54 AM:

    The crazy alarm has been sounding for years, and getting louder. And I thought it was tinnitus.

  12. Ohhhh! Is that why way back in the 70’s we’d look at someone who said some of things being accepted as okay today and say, “You’re crazy”?

  13. “Just confirming what we already knew-“

    Yea, no shit.

  14. “The study on left-wing authoritarianism also showed that many times they do not practice what they so loudly preach.”

    If there is there a single example of them ever practicing what they preach it’s been kept secret from me

  15. Remember that senator who was followed by Hilldawg and then by Kirsten Gigglebrand? Yes, that’s him, Daniel Patrick Moynihan. His explanation for why he caused the drug addled homeless morass in which we are stuck does not come off as pathological, but more like … whoopsie.
