New DSM V Diagnosis – “Blame Evasion Disorder”

This new diagnostic category may be introduced in the upcoming edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel – 5th Edition:  Blame Evasion Disorder.  Sufferers of this disorder tend to voice these precepts:

1.  Women practice and  are the cause of sexism.

2.  Minorities are racist and therefore promote racism.

3.  Washington, D.C., the territory conservatives owned from 2001 to 2009, is liberal.

4.  Poor people, undeserving of loans,  who possess very little ecomonic power, caused the housing market melt-down.

5. Gays and lesibians are out to destroy the concept of heterosexual marriage.

6. All Liberals are evil and racist.

People with this disorder tend to rant on and on at conservative blog locations.  Treatment for this very sad disorder is not yet available.  Psychosurgery options may need to be considered.

Thomas Frank helped do some of the leg-work on identifying this new condition.  Read more here.
