The Summer of Our Gaslighting Discontent
Uncover DC ^ | 19 June 2020 | Brian Cates

Posted on 06/20/2020 4:36:27 PM PDT by Rummyfan

I’ve got some bad news for you, folks. To get to that massive Trump landslide in November, we’re going to have to go through an ordeal because there will be a relentless and almost overwhelming amount of gaslighting until the election gets here.

A massive amount of time, effort and money will be invested by the Progressive Left to hide the real cultural shift going on in this country, as they use the legacy media to try to manufacture a fake cultural shift in the other direction.

Confederate statues were the start, now in less than two weeks the mob has moved on to founding father Thomas Jefferson and President Abraham Lincoln.

Major corporations are sending out press releases and emails to all their customers vowing to help fight America’s systemic racism and play an important role in the cultural shift away from the country’s irredeemably racist past. Netflix, Amazon, Patreon, GoFundMe, OpenTable, Nike, the NFL, MLB, NBA, the list is endless.

More statues will be removed. More brands will change their name. More corporations will announce massive donations to black causes, including and especially Black Lives Matters, the Marxist Socialist group that functions as the foot soldiers on the ground, driving mass protests.

Thanks to Democrat governors and mayors like Bill DeBlasio, Jenny Durkan, Lori Lightfoot, Jacob Frey, Tim Walz, Gretchen Whitmer, Andrew Cuomo and many others, Americans are getting a LONG HARD LOOK at what happens when you elect ideological lunatics to crucially important jobs in their state/city.

I do not understand the depth of hatred for President Trump. Why?

All this horseshit that Blacks and Antifa are doing will come back on them in spades.

Can I say spades anymore?...

I hope you’re right, I really do. It’s hard to stay optimistic with the level of idiocy, lunacy, hatred, and violence we’re surrounded with daily.

Their attempts to relentlessly gaslight us “1984-style” for over 5 months is only going to build Trump’s coming massive red wave even bigger.

MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL!!!!
1 Timothy 6:10

For thousands of years and God let us know that through His Word.

When I see Americans fraud the government of $millions, I wonder how they can rob/steal from every other taxpaying American. Another Thou shalt not!!! When you don’t pay the share of taxes you are to by law or take from the coffers, it’s stealing. (Yes, I tried in my 20’s!! Got caught by IRS and paid the fine when I had very little money. Learned an expensive lesson, thank you God!)

The Left and the Democrats may be suffering from some kind of unprecedentedly bad groupthink. Irving Janis gives eight symptoms, which sound on the mark. Now we saw this earlier with the House Democrats and I think it’s moved into overdrive. The question for me is if they are suffering this or if they are actually trying to bring this about as a strategy to win the election. In any event, groupthink is bad and needs to be pointed out. My feeling is that most people will step back from the crazy even if they don’t change their minds about Trump. Any little bit helps.

1. Illusions of invulnerability lead members of the group to be overly optimistic and engage in risk-taking.

2. Unquestioned beliefs lead members to ignore possible moral problems and ignore the consequences of individual and group actions.

3. Rationalizing prevents members from reconsidering their beliefs and causes them to ignore warning signs.

4. Stereotyping leads members of the in-group to ignore or even demonize out-group members who may oppose or challenge the group’s ideas.

5. Self-censorship causes people who might have doubts to hide their fears or misgivings.

6. “Mindguards” act as self-appointed censors to hide problematic information from the group.

7. Illusions of unanimity lead members to believe that everyone is in agreement and feels the same way.

8. Direct pressure to conform is often placed on members who pose questions, and those who question the group are often seen as disloyal or traitorous

Because President Trump, unlike HW and W, is a dedicated America First man. And, a dedicated Capitalist. The Left after 8 years of Hussein thought they had finally won and they anticipated they would seal the deal with 8 years of Hellery. They could taste the transformation. They thought it was so very close. The polls told them LANDSLIDE!!! And they believed it.
Then, election day happened and WE voted for Trump and he won. And, he won by kicking down their Blue Wall states.
They were shocked and that was followed by seeking revenge. Against him and against US.
Failing that they began to get angrier and angrier and with each attempt to get rid of Trump failing the rage in them builds and builds. Consuming them with hatred for Trump, for US and for our country.

There better be a full accounting of exactly who that money is going to.

The rabid Leftists saw DJT as a joke candidate. Trump proved them wrong and they CANNOT forgive him for beating Hillary! They had their election trickery in place, but it was insufficient to overwhelm the deplorable vote. Unforgivable!

Their massive, invested love of Hillary now turned into massive, invested hatred for DJT. All across the country, womyn's groups had amassed, reserved flights and rooms for the Hillary inauguration. What to do with all that energy and money invested in a trip to DC for an event that evaporated? Simple.

Take that herd of befuddled womyn and redirect their money, energy and presence into a Pussy Hat convention of hate. That hate has not abated but has infused all the other stunned leftists to carry the torch of vitriol.

Don’t forget the virus gaslighting over an extremely non-virulent pathogen.

There’s really something on the back end going on. I’m not even sure it has that much to do with Trump. And certainly not Hillary, I mean come on, man! Nobody likes Hillary that much!

Those of you in or around small towns, talk to some of the women working in services (e.g., Walmart stores) in those communities and get some grapevines going. That’s where the anti-Trump clucking has been intensifying under our noses.

We are looking at an international situation.

They had Floyd protests in Japan, Australia, Western Europe.

This is _not_ about President Trump or Hillary or any uniquely US issue.

Something else is happening here...

Find those who fund the _international_ leftists and then you can find the answer to the puzzle.
