Leftists Always Lie (#1)

In this week’s edition of Leftists Always Lie, it turns out that Leftist lapdogs in the social sciences reported fake data to suggest that conservatives, not liberals, had psychotic traits:

Researchers have fixed a number of papers after mistakenly reporting that people who hold conservative political beliefs are more likely to exhibit traits associated with psychoticism, such as authoritarianism and tough-mindedness.

As one of the notices specifies, now it appears that liberal political beliefs are linked with psychoticism. That paper also swapped ideologies when reporting on people higher in neuroticism and social desirability (falsely claiming that you have socially desirable qualities); the original paper said those traits are linked with liberal beliefs, but they are more common among people with conservative values.

This is typical Leftist behavior (TLB): they make a broad conclusion from narrow data and then parrot it frenetically, confusing everyone for the time it takes for the damage to be done, and when the retraction or contradiction comes out months or years later, they simply opt to not mention it.
