What is gaslighting?
Gasligting is a form of psychological control to get someone to believe what is false by constantly feeding them lies, distortions of the truth, and to get them to eventually doubt their memory or their sanity.
Over time, if someone falls victim to this, they end up questioning their own sanity and believing they are the one who is crazy, not the person who is gaslighting them.
What are the goals of gaslighting?
It’s goal is to cause confusion, bring a lack of clarity, muddy the waters in someone else’s thinking, to get them to question their own values and morals, and to get them to change their minds and make different decisions away from the truth, and away from what is true, right, and good.
Gaslighting is employed so those on the left can get away with deception, lies, and to sway public opinion to accomplish goals that are less than honest, and the ultimate goal is the gaslights want control over people.
We’ve seen this gaslighting play out a lot over the last year and a half through the covid ordeal that we’ve been through as a nation.
One example is last summer, the summer of 2020, leading up to the election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, was the Antifa riots, fires , looting and burning of many major cities in our nation, and right here in Seattle. The left has destroyed many cities, crime, murder, and drug usage is at an all time high in these cities, and the left who controls these cities does nothing about it.
But on Jan. 6th when people rushed the capitol building and one police officer was shot, the left has gone into hysterics over this event, and some of these non-violent protestors are still in solitary confinement awaiting a trial 7 months later.
And the mainstream press has been gas lighting us all year, trying to get us to believe that what happened at the capital on Jan. 6th somehow is far more serious and threatening to our republic than what happened for months and months in the summer of 2020 in our major cities leading up to the Nov. 2020 election.
They are trying to get us to believe that somehow what we saw all last summer is not that big a deal compared to Jan. 6th, so they can carry out their socialist, Marxist goals that they have for the United States of America.
They are blowing smoke in our faces, and trying to tell us on the right that we are the crazy ones, we are the ones not seeing reality clearly, we are the ones who have misunderstood what has happened, we are the ones who are mistaken and misinformed.
They are trying to get us to believe something that is not the truth, by the constant drumbeat of their lies, to get us to wear down, question our own sanity, make us feel like we are the cray ones, so we will be discuraged, give up, go home, and be quiet.. This is the goal of gaslighting, so the gaslighters can have all of the control.
What’s the solution? Be prepared for the gaslighters, who will quickly tear into you, to knock you off balance, get control of the discussion, and cause the people who are telling the truth to get discouraged, give up the fight, be quiet and go home.
Do not answer them. Completely ignore their gaslighting, and tell the truth, list the facts, and tell them that you will not be labeled with their false accusations.
State the truth, list your goals, comments, and responses with clarity, and do not even answer the accusations, but spend time stating who they really are, what their agenda is, and expose the truth of what has really happened, and what they plan on trying to to to our nation, tearing it down one lie at a time.
