The radical Left has completely broken from reality.
But they continue to be given mainstream acceptance.
Now leftists have taken their insanity to a new level with one complaint.
The fringe Left have gone mad, and everyone can see it.
One of leftists’ newest social justice fads is “fat studies” (their words), and they are spreading a terrible message to people struggling with weight loss.
A Pennsylvania-based “obesity rights researcher” – yes, apparently that’s a thing – named Monica Kriete is pushing the insane theory that encouraging people to lose weight is a form of “conversion therapy.”

Kriete boasts a Masters in Public Health from Harvard, which illustrates how elite universities have created a cottage industry for “woke” insanity.
All of the bad ideas currently polluting society were cooked up in a Critical Theory department at some liberal arts college.
According to a profile piece in Harvard Magazine, “Kriete, who identifies as fat, has long been attuned to the cultural signals, both subtle and blatant, that her body is not acceptable. After immersing herself in fat activism blogs as an undergraduate biochemistry and women’s studies major, she’s come to the School to acquire the tools to help change the conversation around weight and health.”
The Left’s bad ideas have real-world consequences.
Discouraging people to lose weight is a terrible idea considering heart disease is the number one cause of death in America.
Leftists invert the truth.
They consider diet culture “toxic,” but “fat acceptance” nurturing and healthy.
James Lindsay – one of the major voices fighting back against the neo-Marxist doctrine of Critical Race Theory and other terrible ideas – exposed the intellectual rot that has taken place in higher education.
Lindsay, along with academics Helen Pluckrose and Peter Boghossian, wrote hoax papers and submitted them to “esteemed” academic journals to see if they would get accepted.
The topics were intentionally ridiculous to prove the point – one of the papers took a passage from “Mein Kampf” and replaced it with radical feminist jargon.
In one of the hoax papers, the trio argued in favor of “fat bodybuilding.”
The paper was enthusiastically accepted by an academic journal called Fat Studies.
The Left have nosedived off a cliff, and they’re trying to drag millions of people with them.
Their terrible ideas must be confronted and ruthlessly mocked whenever possible.
