Left-wing extremism can be rooted in very unhealthy and selfish mental behavior, a new study suggests.

“According to this principle, individuals with dark personalities — such as high narcissistic and psychopathic traits — are attracted to certain forms of political and social activism which they can use as a vehicle to satisfy their own ego-focused needs instead of actually aiming at social justice and equality,” they told PsyPost.

Left-wing extremism is tied to narcissism more than it is to supporting social causes, according to new research.

Awwwww, all they were trying to do was go into that federal courthouse with their American Flags (I'm sure they were keeping them folded up so they didn't catch on fire) and take selfies.

Nothing to see here. Move on.
