Ever been told that your conservative views are a result of stupidity, emotional insecurity, or a defective upbringing? Ever seen such puerile claims shrouded in scholarly robes to give them an aura of credibility?
Then you should read the well-reasoned responses of Colorado’s own Iron Shrink (here and here) to some recent “academic” studies that appear to be guilty of one of the worst sins in the liberal PC pantheon: stereotyping. You also will want to listen to the Iron Shrink (aka Shawn Smith) during his guest appearance during the 10 AM hour of Thursday’s edition of the Mike Rosen Show.
Memo to those on the Left: I hope you don’t take these studies too seriously. After all, I believe some of you can have intelligent debates with those with whom you disagree, and may actually be persuaded on some points. Don’t worry. Should you find yourself beginning to feel agreement with one or more ideas generally deemed conservative, it’s probably not a sign that you need to seek psychological intervention. (Unless perhaps he’s the Iron Shrink.)
