Hooray for science. We now have proof that so-called liberalism is in the genes – an obvious defect in the evolutionary development of the human brain.
According to scientists at UC San Diego and Harvard University, people tend to be more liberal as adults if, in addition to being active socially during adolescence they have
a specific variant of the DRD4 gene
DRD4 is a dopamine receptor gene that genetic scientists believe is associated with an increased risk for ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
According to experts, the characteristic ADHD symptoms are inattentiveness, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity.
Now it all makes perfect sense. The Leftists must have a particularly mutant version of the DRD4 gene since they exhibit ADHD on steroids. Lets look at their symptoms.
Inattentiveness? Whether it is in defending the Obama administration’s disastrous economic policies, Obamacare or illegal immigration, the Left pays no attention to any real facts.
Impulsiveness? Just take a look again at the clip from “The View” when leftists Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set in a huff after Bill O’Reilly made the indisputably accurate statement that Muslims attacked us on 9/11. Joy Behar’s DRD4 gene also drove her this week to twice slime Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle as a “bitch.”
Hyperactivity? George Soros, for example, has been in overdrive lately in trying to destroy Fox News with his contributions to National Public Radio and Media Matters.
The way things look right now, Lefties are going to need a very large prescription of Ritalin following the November 2nd elections.
