    You are calling someone who may be bipolar a subhuman psycho and it gets recs.
    These kinds of ugly  remarks about mental illness on a liberal blog are seriously ignorant and effed up.
    You are outraged in your comment about basic decency then wrote crap like this.
    The stigma of mental illness in this country is horrific enough.
    And you take about lack of empathy?
    Do you hear yourself?

    •  Who is bipolar? (3+ / 0-)

      My comment refers to Kitsap River being compared with Adam Lanza, who had a personality disorder but my contention with him is that he is a mass murderer. Her husband rec'd the comment, so presumably I didn't hit a nerve. I called Adam Lanza a "subhuman psycho" because I'm not really his BFF today, sorry. The guy just murdered a truckload of six years olds, and I have very little empathy for a person like that.

      Psychopath. Yes. Lanza is very much a psychopath in the common parlance.

      I think I'm in fine company with not having any empathy for the guy on that count, but if you can find it in your heart to feel that we should speak more respectfully about him, that's your prerogative. I think what happened to him is tragic, but I continue to be more concerned with the children and teachers he killed than him.

        Those suffering from the living he'll of being schizophrenic are sub human monsters according to you and you double down on your ignorance. How ugly, coming from a "liberal". Fyi, the acts he committed were evil, he  wasnot. He was sick.  I have sympathy  and empathy for everyone....you choose the  obvious.. don't even co e back with more of this tripe as we are done.

    •  I disagree.. (2+ / 0-)

      I don't think Mahakali Overdrive was stigmatizing or being insensitive to people struggling with mental health issues...

      I agree there's lots of stigma, but disagree that MO was or would ever show it..

        She has sympathy for those suffering with mental health issues calling them sub human monsters. Just stop.
