Religion is the traditional escape from such fear and revulsion. This fear is why conservatives also tend to be repulsed or scared of seeing nudity, sex, basic bodily functions, "wild" behavior and diversity of appearance in other people.
    On the other hand, reacting strongly to a disgusting image suggests evolutionary advantage. You actually should avoid a strange insect you have absolutely no pre-existing knowledge about.

    Of course, this study reveals no behavioural differences in how the two groups reacted. Different portions of the brains lit up, that's it. They didn't actually react differently behaviourally.

    I'm leery of things that immediately are used to justify psychobabble.

    In any case, political beliefs are freely chosen, if there is a connection with some underlying emotional way of responding, it is only the researchers' biases that cause them to view the political beliefs as consequent rather than causative.

    In conclusion, some are influenced by visual stimuli.

    Well, that makes sense. Liberals just go about their agenda, they don't care about the reality of their failed policies and human suffering right in front of their faces. Many RINO's fall right in there too. What they see, however bad, will not stop them, they don't care.

    Conservatives just don't react that way, and can't ignore what liberals routinely ignore. As I've always said, you must be able to lie to yourself to be a liberal. Just more proof of this.

    Trust me, I've seen how liberals work and "fixing" people they don't agree with is pretty much always part of the package.
    Re-education camps are no longer necessary. They'll be able to fix your DNA before you are even born.
