Looking and watching what transpires day-to-day, one could be forgiven if they thought,
"I must be losing my mind. Nothing makes sense any more."
No, you're not crazy, but the Left wants you to think you are.
The term for that is "Gaslighting".
Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s belief.Instances may range from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.Sociopaths and narcissists frequently use gaslighting tactics. Sociopaths consistently transgress social mores, break laws, and exploit others, but typically also are convincing liars, sometimes charming ones, who consistently deny wrongdoing. Thus, some who have been victimized by sociopaths may doubt their own perceptions. - Wikipedia entry, "Gaslighting"Further elucidation from a master:
That vid was from 2014, but things haven't improved since then. In fact, it's worse.
In a thundering essay on the current situation comes a fine and insightful essay, The Weight Of The World, by Dystopic, which you should definitely read in its entirety at his site.
From Dystopic's piece:
"Talk to a Leftist, and he will complain that dead people who looked vaguely similar to you perpetrated horrific crimes against humanity (while ignoring similar crimes perpetuated by people who didn’t look much like you). The Trail of Tears was your fault, so was slavery, the Holocaust, colonialism, why Somalia sucks today, and why it sucked 500 years ago, and why an overweight lesbian couldn’t get a taxi cab in Manhattan at 4 in the afternoon on a Friday – whatever. It’s all your fault. Carry the sins, accept the punishment, give up your wealth (there was a hashtag running around social media some time ago called #GiveYourMoneyToWomen), shut up and stay in your lane."
"Weaponized Empathy has destroyed these people, body and soul. They mutilate themselves, hate themselves, rail against the very society that created them, and then seek to unload their shame and self-loathing on to others."
Eureka! That's it! Joss Whedon for the win!
The Left today is nothing more nor less than Reavers.
That explains the facial tattoos, the hardware store in cheeks and heads, the rise of psychotics cutting themselves, the plethora of addadicktome and chopadickoffame surgeries the transnormal genderfluid freakshow refugees undergo, with about as much logic as you find at a NOW convention.
It also explains the rising tide of literal hordes of rootless weak-minded fruitcake retards who want nothing so much as to pull everything down, and burn it all, so they can be the Beelzebubian shitlords the cheatcode-embedded video marathons they play make them think they deserve to be.
This isn't just name-calling, this is taxonomy, in the strictest zoological sense.
That is what we're up against. Just. Exactly. THAT.
And whether it's barnyard animals in Animal Farm, or the rise of our dystopian simian overlords in Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes, it never ends well for the humans.
If the Left won't turn back from the abyss next to which they're frolicking, hordes of red-pilled folks are going to cut to the chase, and change the ending of the real life story, and it isn't going to be pretty for the animals, this time around.
If they thought getting punched in the face was bad, wait until they see the big rollout of When Things Get Serious. When the People Who Want To Be Left Alone (CF.: the Founders hereabouts called that condition "Liberty"; some old enough may recall what it looked like) have finally had enough pushing and shoving from the People Who Want To Control Everyone.
There's a price for being slow learners, and it's almost as steep as that last drop.
Think hard, Reavers.
Your targets are running out of patience for your antics.
The lives you save will be your own.
