What Is Gaslighting?

What Is Gaslighting? - 01/17/21

We're being "gaslighted" bigtime.

There is an outstanding article explaining "gaslighting" for those who don' t know what it means, its origin, etc., and how we are affected daily by it. It is a long article so I am not posting it, but go to http://www.theospark.net/ and read it. It is well worth the read.

Gaslighting? There is no such thing. It's a conspiracy theory and if you believe it, you are a racist.

I know that’s a new word to some even boomers it seems.

I watched gaslighting in real time, my aunt used to play Munchausen games with my grandmother.

so, gaslighting is just another word for being lied too?

Re: What Is Gaslighting? - 01/17/21

Call it by whatever the current phrase happens to be in favor. I still refer to such BS, as trying to blow smoke up my ass.

Works just as well today, as it did 50 years ago.

Like the resident boy lover screaming “NO evidence of election fraud!” when we see the actual proof all around us. “Do you believe ME or your lyin eyes?”

Not quite. Ever see the movie? It's an effort to make someone question the very reality that's right in front of them, plain to see, by means of a barrage of input from others that contradicts that reality. The classic example is to dramatically alter the furniture arrangement in someone's house, and then, when they take note of it and ask how it happened, tell them that it's always been like that, and then ask them if they are feeling okay, and maybe suggest they see a psychiatrist.

If you can get people to relegate their understanding and perception of reality to an external source, you can get them to believe anything. Gaslighting is the main tool for attacking those who have some internal perception of reality still intact.

Reminds me of something that still gives me a smile.

A co-worker was out sick on Friday- the same day her office lease was up, so we moved her.

She came in Monday, unlocked her door (half a dozen of us just happened to be standing around). She got this funny look on her face, closed the door, checked the number, then opened the door and looked again at the empty room.

"Have I been fired"?

We lost it....

My definition:

Insidious, evil manipulation of speech and/or events with the intention of causing one or a group to question their own perception of reality, thought processes or even sanity.

A political trick ubiquitous in use by democats.

A subtle devious lie.

Gaslighting:

“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”


That is, until it is exposed by the truth. The efforts to silence conservatives at this time is to shield their lies from the truth.

It's more like cranking off that fart, then turning to the guy next to you, and saying, "Damn, how could you do that? At least have the decorum to say, 'Excuse me.'"

Re: What Is Gaslighting? - 01/17/21

The last paragraph sums it up.
"Gaslighting has become one of the most pervasive and destructive tactics in American politics. It is the exact opposite of what our political system was meant to be. It deals in lies and psychological coercion, and not the truth and intellectual discourse. If you ever ask yourself if you’re crazy, you are not. Crazy people aren’t sane enough to ask themselves if they’re crazy. So, trust yourself, believe what’s in your heart.

Trust your eyes over what you are told. Never listen to the people who tell you that you are crazy, because you are not, you’re being gaslighted.

Sophocles said: "What people believe prevails over the truth."

And that's what the media are trying to exploit."

Same test run on liberal/progressive sites/domain list with zero flagged as clickbait (no issue with this at all) as it should be. What surprised me was running the test on Antifa sites/domains; none of them were flagged, even organizations banned on major social media platforms were not flagged by the extension. This is disturbing imo.

Pretty much everything the DNC releases to the public is a lie or is intended to manipulate the political narrative to their point of view. The best thing conservatives did for the DNC was illegally enter the capitol building by force. They are really getting some mileage out of that. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn. The good folks of Tennessee need to give this guy his walking papers.

Lawmaker says 75% of National Guard potential threat because they’re white and didn’t vote for Biden
January 18, 2021 | Tom Tillison | Print Article

Amid reports that U.S. defense officials are worried about an insider attack or other threat from some of the 25,000 National Guard troops being deployed to the nation’s capital to help secure Joe Biden’s inauguration, the FBI is reportedly vetting soldiers for sympathies toward political extremists — on the right, of course.

Democrats and their corrupt media allies are whipping the nation into a frenzy ahead of Inauguration Day, exploiting the storming of the U.S. Capitol to justify the extreme lockdown of Washington, and Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., did his part by stating that because Nation Guard members are overwhelmingly white and most did not vote for Biden, that pose a threat.

Appearing on CNN, where anchor Jim Sciutto noted current and former members of the U.S. military and law enforcement took part in the U.S. Capitol protest, he asked Cohen about his level of concern of an insider threat?”

“Well it certainly raises warning,” Cohen said, referencing Egypt President Anwar Sadat and India Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, noting that they “were killed by their own people.”
