Every day Scott Walker remains in office, we are placing our fate in the hands of a sick man
You’ve seen the video’s of his reaction to protesters on the fishing trip, at Devil’s Lake, and any number of other events.
Here he was, time and time again, surrounded by protesters who were chanting and shouting out “shame!”. What did you notice about Scott Walker’s reaction? There wasn’t any. He seemed emotionally oblivious to the chants that would have had most of us tensing up with non-verbal body cues that are the normal response to threat or attack. In Walker’s case. Nothing.
Many people, even those from his own party, have been left scratching their heads over this man’s reactions, statements, and demeanor. Many comments have been made regarding his affect and his facial blandness suggesting that he may have “lazy eye” or some other affectation.
Many have wondered at his decision making as a leader, in that he seems to be unable to listen to, compromise with, or acknowledge the credibility of those who oppose his views. Imagine what a different path the whole evolution of events might have taken if he had just been able to compromise with unions way back in February and agree not to take away bargaining rights. But no. He really appears to be his own worst enemy and chooses to create controversy in order surround himself in drama in which he is the focus of attention.
So, this is what has led me to looking at this dysfunctional behavior that has polarized Wisconsin and set up a historic recall action.
It started out as a lark when I discovered the site: Profile of the Sociopath. It was funny, at first, as I began to read the characteristics of a such a personality. As I went down the list, the words seemed to be defining the behavior of the man who is the Governor. It got scary.
Now, the Democratic Party is suggesting that we postpone the date of of his recall till 2012?
Do you know someone who ignored the pain in the arm, or shortness of breath and postponed taking action? Please, wake up. Scott Walker, has no conscience and is a real
threat to the people of this state. He is using his position to further his personal goals to enter the national stage and is getting less and less effective in hiding his selfish ambitions.
We cannot afford to allow his manipulation of our laws one day, one hour, one second more than the law allows.
Walker is now beginning to suggest a willingness to compromise
This rebirth of a new Scott Walker ready to listen and cooperate is another phenomena right out of the sociopath’s play book. The problem is, they are so good at it. They can project any manner of human emotion with full credibility, since they have no conscience to conflict with the lie they are living. They are completely believable and authentic to those with conscience.
I am not psychologist. This analysis here is based on life experience, and personal observation. I would that Walker would seek independent analysis and make the findings public.
The Profile of a Sociopath list is below. You read it and tell me if I have become the crazy one: the creator of a conspiracy theory?
This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.
# Glibness and Superficial Charm
# Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
# Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”
# Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
# Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
# Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
# Incapacity for Love
# Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
# Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
# Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
# Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
# Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
# Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
