Someone is suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). The symptoms of are generally expressions of hyperbolic disgust, ridicule, and fear of the named candidate; total ignorance regarding the candidate’s actual ideological or policy perspectives; a belief that anything the candidate says is true; and a generalized state of anxiety regarding the future of the country that has no basis in fact.
What is the psychological foundation of TDS?
In every culture, there must be a vessel that holds negative energy. It is what depth psychologist Carl Jung called the “Shadow” of the culture’s collective unconscious. It is “The Other”. It is the projection of that culture’s own dark side. The Other must be created, for it is a defense mechanism that allows the culture to avoid dealing with difficult or unwanted feelings. Thus, there is all that is perceived to be “right”, and anything that opposes that order must be – by definition – wrong. It must come from darkness. It must be evil.
For if The Other is not evil or wrong, then that which is evil and wrong must lie within the culture itself. Therefore, that culture is corrupt. It is wrong. It is imperfect. It is bad. This psychological realization must be avoided at all costs. It creates cognitive dissonance – when facts contradict the deeply-held beliefs of the culture.
Therefore, all the negative energy and attributes are projected onto The Other.
