A couple years back I walked my best friend through a rough patch. She was married to the anti-Christ. No, really. This guy was something else. In front of people, he was a saint. But, behind closed doors he was something else altogether. Picture horns and a tail. 

My friend—let’s call her Mary Anne—got the full dose whenever doors were closed. That broad, flashy smile of his would fade and she would take the brunt of his anger and frustration. Then, at the end of every tirade, he would somehow convince her that it was all her fault. 

Every. Single. Time. 

She believed it, too. But, then again, most people who are being gaslighted do take the blame on themselves. They are manipulated into doing so by their crafty perpetrators. 

“Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse that’s seen in abusive relationships. It’s the act of manipulating a person by forcing them to question their thoughts, memories, and the events occurring around them. A victim of gaslighting can be pushed so far that they question their own sanity. The term “gaslighting” comes from a play and subsequent movie called “Gaslight.” In the movie, the devious husband, played by Charles Boyer, manipulates and torments his wife, played by Ingrid Bergman, to convince her she’s going mad. Gaslighting, whether intentional or not, is a form of manipulation.”

After walking my best friend through this mess—and finally seeing her free of this horrible man—I’ve been paying a lot more attention to how gaslighters work. They choose their victims carefully and they never relent, no matter how implausible their story might seem. 

Take the Democrats and the media, for instance. They are skilled in the art of gaslighting, after all, and they’ve chosen us (the country) as their victims. 

Don’t Believe It?
Here are a few samples from recent months to convince you that their manipulation techniques are as strong as ever: 

  • That’s not a fire you see blazing in the video behind me! These are “mostly peaceful” protests! 
  • We’re not slanted in Joe Biden’s direction. 8% of our coverage of Trump is positive! 
  • Joe Biden is in excellent cognitive shape! He’s not really stumbling over his own words! (And if he did we wouldn’t cover it!)
  • Your president is a racist. We’re going to keep telling you that until you believe it. 
  • Your president rigged the 2016 election with Putin’s help. Any proof to oppose that narrative will be hidden. 
  • Empower women! (Except Amy Coney Barrett)
  • The riots are your president’s fault. He instigated them with his racism. 
  • Did we mention your president is a racist? He’s a white supremacist, too. There’s nothing to prove otherwise. If so, we would show you! 
  • Believe all women! (Except Tara Reade)
  • You’re too busy to read those declassified documents yourself. We’ll tell you what’s in them. 
  • Populism bad. Establishment good. We promise. 
  • The government is locking you down for your own good. Just trust them…and us. 
  • You can trust the experts. And by the way, we’ll tell you who they are. Don’t believe anyone else, except the media/Democrat-approved experts. 
  • Of course we’re not censoring you! We’re just limiting posts to narrative-approved matter for the good of the country and the safety of its people!
  • Followers of Donald Trump are fascists. We call them Deplorables for a reason. They are also White Supremacist Nationalists who are dangerous. We’ll keep labeling them as such until everyone believes it. 
  • Those aren’t large crowds at Trump rallies. (And even if they were, we wouldn’t show them.) 
  • You don’t care about immigrants if you believe in borders. 
  • Those are real migrant caravans. We promise. 
  • Cops are bad. We’ll keep showing you videos of their “innocent victims” until you believe it. 
  • Black Lives Matter. Unless they’re aborted black lives.  
  • Did we mention Donald Trump is a racist? 
  • Oh, and Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide. 

Here’s the truth, my friends. We’re being manipulated by the Democrats and the Mainstream Media. They have their own narrative and they play it over and over until we fall for it. 

The Emperor has no clothes. But the media is here to convince us he does. And many sheepish-types go on watching (and believing), completely oblivious. 

The question is, will we keep falling for it, or will we garner the courage to rise up and leave that dead-beat husband once and for all? I can’t speak for everyone, of course, but it felt really good to watch my best friend be set free from the manipulation. 

It will feel good for you, too. 

So, turn off that television. Search for alternative news sources. Free up your heart and mind from the manipulation, once and for all. 

When people learn no tools of judgment and merely follow their hopes, the seeds of political manipulation are sown.

  1. I never knew other than the definition of the word, what Gas Lighting or what narcistic people were like until my daughter went through it. These people are masters at manipulation. He was the perfect husband, kind and caring while he was the center of attention. When my daughter had twin boys that all ended and he turned into a monster. This change in attitude almost destroyed my daughter as she turned to alochol to be able to tollerate such abuse. He did everything but hit her, calling her names, screaming in her face, questioning her ability to take care of the babies, and about drove her over the edge. My wife and I interceded on the side and got her to AA and to psychological help which showed her that she was not the fault, that is is text book behavior of a narcist. After learning about how they work, how they are made (and they are), and what to expect, you realize they will never change no matter what they say. I say made, because between the ages of birth to six years old, if a child is put on a pedestal, told they are the most perfect person in the world, never disciplined, and basically sheltered from the outside influences they are programmed to act as such for the rest of their lives. Even people like UCLA Professor Dr. Morris Massey, explain why they act this way in his presentation “What you are is”. The only way to end it is the get away from it. We finally got my daughter convinced of this and she filed divorce on him. This was 2 years ago and he is still a 100% narcistic bastard that violates all the divorce agreements that were court ordered. He regularly tries to program his two 6 year old sons, tries to secretly communicate with him so he can see what’s going on with my dauther’s new house, tries to enter her house but keeps her at the end of his driveway during the exchange of the boys time. He records everything. In addition he has lived in Orlando Florida all his life and has absolutely NO friends, treats other women he is now dating as queens, little do they know he will change once he gains control of them. I have been so tempted to inflict on him an attitude adjustment so that the failure to communicate properly will end, but stopped myself knowing it would accomplish nothing but put me in jail. The best thing any one can do when they find a Narcisitic person like this is to fun fast and far away from them, stay away, cut communications with them, if necessary get a restraining order from a Court, and move. They are evil, manipulative, and will destroy anyone who is weak. If you see this happening, grab the person who is being put into this situation before its too late and help them get out of it. They cannot do it alone as their self esteem has been broken, which is exactly what the Narcist wants. They are after a slave basically that will never question, always revere them, and have no life but to serve them.

    • Sadly, this is a more common problem than people know. It’s hard to label a gaslighter sometimes because they’re SO good at manipulation, but I agree that getting out from under their control is sometimes the only safe option. Thanks for being there for your loved one!
