In a Facebook post on Monday, conservative political commentator, comedian and author of “KinderGarden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks” and “Apocali Now!Evan Sayet explained that conservatives are so happy and leftists are so miserable because capitalists need friends and socialists need enemies.

“One reason conservatives are so happy and [l]efists are so miserable is that capitalists need friends,” wrote Evan Sayet. “They need business partners and investors, trading partners and customers so satisfied they come back again and again.

“The socialist needs enemies,” Sayet went on. “There must be people who hate him and oppress him. If he’s not hated and oppressed then socialism doesn’t exist.

“If he [the socialist] can’t find any such hatred, he’s forced to make it up,” Sayet continued. “‘Dog whistles’ – he knows what you’re REALLY saying – and ‘micro-aggressions’ are all invented nonsense because this ‘oppression’ simply MUST be true or else there’s no socialist movement (and no free things.)”

Sayet concluded: “The socialist doesn't need to work well with others because he doesn't work. What he needs is an excuse to justify his theft.”

The former New York liberal made similar assertions concerning the liberal mindset in a Heritage Foundation speech on the Unified Field Theory of Liberalism back in 2007 and in his book “KinderGarden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks,” explaining, according to the Amazon.com summary, “Why the Modern Liberal’s thinking leads him to side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success.”
