Crazy People Are Dangerous

Posted on | April 12, 2015 | 81 Comments

Deborah E. Frisch, Ph.D., is due in court Monday:

The former University of ­Oregon professor released from jail [March 30] after pleading guilty to making a false report against a Eugene police officer is again behind bars on similar charges.
Deborah Ellen Frisch, 53, is facing a charge of initiating a false report and a probation ­violation in the previous case.
According to court records, Frisch returned to her home on Modesto Drive on Monday after being held in the Lane County Jail for 39 days and within two hours of her release called the Eugene Police Department’s nonemergency line.
During that call, court records show, Frisch accused two police officers who served a search warrant on her home of having sexual relations in her bed and leaving behind bodily fluids and sexually transmitted diseases.
Frisch said in the recorded phone conversation that she wanted to document the event because she was afraid she would get a venereal disease, the document states.
She insisted an officer come to her home or she would call 911, according to the report.
Police said 11 minutes later, Frisch called 911 to make a similar report, asking that “someone document a crime scene by the pigs at the Eugene Police Department,” the document states.
She was arraigned on Friday.
Frisch, who has a doctorate in psychology, was arrested in February for three counts of stalking after police accused her of repeatedly harassing a city police officer, another city of Eugene employee, and the director of a local nonprofit agency. Those charges were dismissed eventually, but not before Frisch accused a female officer of sexually assaulting her. She entered an Alford plea to a charge of false reporting Monday and was sentenced to two years of probation.
She is required to undergo a mental health evaluation.
For several years between 1988 and 2001, Frisch taught at the UO psychology department. She then taught at the University of Arizona but resigned in 2006 after writing inflammatory online comments to a conservative blogger.

Oh, that Deb Frish! You remember this notorious moonbat who thought she could use the anonymity of the Internet to make obscene and perverse suggestions against Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom:

Frisch, 44, said she quit her $32,861-a-year part time position not only because she fears for her safety, but because she regrets the [the University of Arizona] ended up in the middle of what was intended to be a “sick joke.” . . .
These people think I should be incarcerated, that I’m mentally ill or that I should be shot,” Frisch said during a telephone interview from Eugene, Ore., where she is living now. “This whole thing has been crazy to me. People have spent their whole weekend on this.” . . .
At first, Frisch said she was enjoying herself.
“I like to play with fire. I’m a left-wing Rush Limbaugh. I’m a writer and I like to fight with words. I’m a word warrior.”
Suddenly though, Frisch said, the conversation degenerated into disparaging personal remarks, many of a sexual nature. . . .
“I wrote something that would make him as queasy as they were making me feel,” Frisch said.

So she told the Arizona Daily Star in July 2006. Notice that Frisch tries to depict herself as a victim, employs the typical “It Was Just a Joke” defense, and suggests that this was just an Internet argument that got out of hand. That is to say, she engaged in rationalizations that were an effort to shift blame away from herself and evade responsibility.

DARVO — Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender:

DARVO refers to a reaction that perpetrators of wrong doing . . . may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. The perpetrator or offender may Deny the behavior, Attack the individual doing the confronting, and Reverse the roles of Victim and Offender such that the perpetrator assumes the victim role and turns the true victim into an alleged offender. . . .

We have discussed DARVO syndrome before. It is most typical of sexual perverts, who make accusations of wrongdoing against others in an effort to discredit their accusers and elicit sympathy for themselves.

People engaged in DARVO are “abusive . . . indignant, self-righteous and manipulative,” they typically “threaten, bully and make a nightmare for anyone who holds them accountable or asks them to change their abusive behavior. This attack, intended to chill and terrify, typically includes threats of lawsuits.” You can click here to read about one of Deb Frisch’s lawsuits, in which she referred to lawyers as “shyster-vermin” and called a federal judge a “frocked cowf–ker.”

Could I explain the psychological causes of such behavior? Sure, but that’s not the relevant point. The point is that this type of personality and this kind of behavior is not unusual among Internet trolls. Remember what Deb Frisch wrote about Jeff Goldstein’s son:

I’d like to hear more about your “tyke” by the way. Girl? Boy? Toddler? Teen? Are you still married to the woman you ephed to give birth to the tyke?
Tell all, bro!

I reiterate: If some nutcase kidnapped your child tomorrow and did to her what was done to your fellow Coloradan, Jon-Benet Ramsey, I wouldn’t give a damn.

Somehow, Jeffy boy, I think you get off on the possibility of Frenching your pathetic progeny, even if it is a boy. You seem like a VERY, VERY sick mofo to me, bro.

You know, Jeff, I just don’t get it. You say, and I believe you, that a human female chose to procreate with you and you have produced a 2 year old progeny. . . .
So the poor bitch is dirt poor and that’s why she pretended you were worthy of procreating with?

Deborah E. Frisch, Ph.D., a professor of psychology wrote that.

This morning, I was trying to explain #AreYouBlocked to my wife. Why is it relevant that a campaign to “blackball” people in the videogame industry has been led by a person under psychiatric care?

In explaining the gravity of this problem to my wife, I mentioned Deb Frisch as an example of where the crazy people come from and what kind of things they do. Then, out of idle curiosity, I decided to Google Deb Frisch to refresh my memory on the specifics and found the Deb Frisch Timeline blog that has been updating readers on her madness for years:

October 14-18, 2010 — Repeating the activity which cost her a job in 2006, Deborah Frisch sexually menaces two young girls in Eugene Oregon. Frisch tries to hide from her crime by sending threatening emails to the victims’ father under a false name; when Frisch’s flimsy subterfuge is blown, she goes on a 72 hour blog/Facebook/email/telephone harassment frenzy.

There is a pattern here, you see: Deb Frisch makes lurid sexual accusations against others, and becomes unhinged when her wrongdoing is exposed.

“God gave them up unto vile affections . . . God gave them over to a reprobate mind . . .”
Romans 1:26-28 (KJV)

Beware of reprobate minds. Crazy people are dangerous.

    I would argue that a lot of them don’t have far to go. Back in the ’60s in San Francisco, my dad observed that many psychology majors went into it to try to figure themselves out. It’s a fundamental flaw in the pipeline for the profession, that it attracts people who aren’t exactly poster children for normalcy.

    Yeah, I’ve done a couple different forms of security, and it was very educational. It took me awhile to develop that sense, because I started from a point of being somewhat naive about people, but you do anything full-time and you’re bound to learn things.

    I suppose we can agree to disagree at this point, because I don’t see Real Men giving up or weakening in the face of adversity. To the contrary; I see them strengthening their resolve.

    What I do see is a lot of “men” who live with Mummy and Daddy, are being supported by them, with any money they earn treated as allowance and pissed away on frivolities. I see a lot of them (because I counsel their wives), who get married, have kids, but also party their money away with their side “bitches” because they think they’re “playas”, and can’t be bothered to support their actual family.

    I suppose it’s because the natural family has been broken down, and a lot of fathers were either absentee or worked so much to make ends meet that there was no time for role modeling for their sons.

    And, most importantly, no room for God in the family.

    And so I understand Genesis 6:6 now “The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.”

    My mom was an OT in mental health her whole working life. She could see the diagoses walking down the street. She had a stroke a few years ago and was in a coma, after which she was pretty muddled. Nevertheless, she correctly self-diagnosed as delusional, which still makes me laugh.

    You have to have a good sense of humor in those situations. I went through that with both of my folks. Mom was hilarious at times, and could laugh at her situation more often than despair. I hope I can be funny in those days, myself.

    My poor mom was so depressed because she wanted to do things that she couldn’t do any longer. She was bored out of her mind. The most content she was, was two years ago, when we went out of town for her class reunion, during her spend-down. It took a long time to get the pieces put together; hotel room was easy, getting them to agree to take a bed out so we could bring in a hospital bed and lift was easy, renting hospital equipment was easy – we used it 4 days and had to pay for a month because they had to transport and set it up, the sticking point was a home health aide because it isn’t normal to call an agency and ask if they have someone for four days. I had to call a place in small town 25 mi from the small town we were visiting and they called me back 2 hrs later and had someone.

    Mom initially just wanted her for 2 shifts but when we found out she had car trouble and was depending on rides and mom wondered why we hadn’t asked for her straight through, we asked if she’d want to stay the weekend. She did so she shared mom’s room.

    I asked her afterwards if she ever thought she couldn’t go to her class reunion and she said “I knew you could do it.” I have that and walking into her room a few days before her death, hearing her say “I want, I want…” and when I asked what she wanted, she said “you to be here” to remind me that she loved and trusted me.

    Mom died about a month ago and I used a class reunion photo for her obit because she was happiest then.

    Isn’t there some kind of modern day He Man Women Haters Club in which men are supposedly intentionally foregoing women because it’s “liberating” or some such nonsense.

    Sounds like leftist tribalism to me.

    Guy1:”Oh I’m so happy without the hassle of women in my life.”
    Guy2: “Me too! It’s so great isn’t it?”
    Guy1: “Golly, there’s got to be others like ua. We should organize so we can, you know, stick together like men.”
    Guy2: “Cool, let me go ask my mom if I its okay.”

    And thus you end up with a bunch of guys who’ve now convinced each other that not having to deal with relationships with women is so liberating!

    It’s the same as the “depression” angle with that German pilot. Lots of people are depressed and do not commit mass murder. The guy had depression. Full stop. He was an evil bastard who killed a hundred and fifty people. Full stop. Those are two different points.

    The idiocy was in believing that giving women the franchise would improve anything. They should vote because they are adult citizens, period. Having a vagina no more grants them special insight and wisdom that it qualifies Hillary! for the presidency.

    Good Lord, there’s a name I’d forgotten. Thing is, just look at what she wrote about Goldstein’s wife and son and ask yourself, does a decent human do that? Good people sometimes lose their temper and say things they regret. If they’re good people they apologize and make amends if possible. If you don’t see that, if instead they continue making the same vile statements, then you know there’s no possibility of them being good people.

    So she’s crazy, yes obviously. She’s also an evil creature, unfit for human society. Question is, how can we deal with people like this? Her own case suggests that the courts are not responding.

    It’s similar to the self selecting mechanism for politics. Too many people are attracted to it, who ought under no circumstance be permitted anywhere near the mechanisms of power.

    Some say there no such thing as evil — since it’s just the expression of some reality-dissociative craziness.

    I insist that no distinction needs to be made. Evil is as evil does. And if you ever encounter it in life, as I have, it doesn’t matter if there’s a clinical disorder that drives it.

    In a far off galaxy, when they’ve gone to their just rewards, Frisch and Billy “No Neck” Schmalfeldt will be betrothed to one another and walk through the arches and climb into a battered 1978 Dodge Dart hoopty for the long ride into oblivion. As they drive off, coughing and sputtering, the whole universe will hurl flaming bags of dog dirt at them. Sayonara, psychopaths!
