Gaslighting
Someone bought http://www.alternativefacts.com and redirected it brilliantly. Have a look.


Gaslighting: Know It and Identify It to Protect Yourself

"Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works much better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn’t realize how much they've been brainwashed. "

RE: Gaslighting
Funny this comes up today.

My SO and I watched the original movie on the weekend. I'd seen it before but she hadn't, and her first comment when it was over was, "This looks like what Trump has been doing to his supporters."

Very definitely part of the repertoire of a malignant narcissist. Text book.

Maybe wait to torch it until we've exhausted the value from the subject itself? Tongue

My mother-in-law has been doing this to her kids for decades. Just yesterday my wife discovered even more things that my MIL had done/said that my wife knew nothing about. It's fucking insidious, and it can affect people for many years after-the-fact.

You can be a victim of gaslighting and be completely unaware. But it will make you question your sanity in the process. It will make you question your memory, and yourself. And make you feel less able to trust your own memories- to a fault.

"TAKE THIS MAN AWAY!"

Ohhhhh, would that this were the trump administration tied up in that chair. Take this man away!




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Gaslighting
I wonder if gaslighting is like going up to a person with a sunburn and then slapping their red, raw back repeatedly and then when they finally get furious enough to hit back you point them out to everyone else and say SEE! SEE! I told you this person has emotional problems!

Here is the thing about potential...You either use your gift or your gift uses you. You are either a rocket or a bomb.
