And we have made progress how?

Conservative commentator George Will called Hofstadter "the iconic public intellectual of liberal condescension," who "dismissed conservatives as victims of character flaws and psychological disorders—a 'paranoid style' of politics rooted in 'status anxiety,' etc. Conservatism rose on a tide of votes cast by people irritated by the liberalism of condescension."[18] Hofstadter's famous 1964 essay, The Paranoid Style in American Politics, articulates this partly psychological characterization of thinking on the radical right.[19]

Now seriously folks....

The currently victimized so called conservatives who are clearly deeply emotionally traumatized because in Iran, they know how to deal with the HORRORS of Liberalism, are... well, actually a clear and compelling proof by existence that these so called conservatives are not the actual victims of their mere character flaws and psychological disorders???

And thus showing that they are, uh, not merely the paranoid style of politics rooted in the status anxiety that they would be someone, were it not for the horrors of liberalism.

No please, how exactly are we suppose to Patriotically Correctly Parse Komrade Party Leader Will's Clearly Divinely Correct position...
