What do Sociopaths and Leftists Have in Common? By Lina Goudsmit.
Sociopaths and Leftists share a common behavior trait — projection — accusing someone else of doing exactly what you are doing yourself. …
Consider sociopath Bill who accuses his honest business partner Joe of embezzling money from their company. At first Joe is confused – he cannot reconcile being accused of stealing when he knows for a fact he did not steal anything. Joe is immediately put on the defensive by the accusation. Joe examines the accounts and sees that money is indeed missing – he is determined to discover who the thief is so he can be reimbursed and clear his name. It never occurs to Joe that it is Bill who is stealing because Bill is the accuser!
In a political context psychological projection is a deceitful conscious strategy to put your political opponent on the defensive. There are fair fights and there are dirty fights in politics. Fair fights are honest debates about the merits of opposing policies and ideas – dirty fights are deliberate, personal, and deceitful tricks designed to discredit your opponent and put him on the defensive. Political projection is a very dirty fight. …
Karl Marx is attributed with saying, “Accuse the victim of what you do.” In the political context, be the first to accuse your opponent of what you are guilty of:
– If you are lying, accuse your opponent of it
– If you are racist, accuse your opponent of it
– If you are intolerant, accuse your opponent of it
– If you have something to hide, accuse your opponent of it
– If you or your spouse have been sexually immoral, accuse your opponent of it
– If you are receiving millions from globalist and Hollywood elites, accuse your opponent of it
Democrat political advisor David Axelrod verbalized this Machiavellian tactic in an NPR interview, April 19, 2010: “In Chicago there was an old tradition of throwing a brick through your own campaign office window, and then calling a press conference to say that you’ve been attacked.” Naive individuals who join these disruptive groups were referred to by Lenin as “useful idiots.”
Hillary Clinton and the DNC honed political projection to an art form during the 2016 pre and post election. They commissioned and financed a fake dossier on candidate Trump to discredit him by accusing him of colluding with the Russians to influence the presidential election. Thanks to Tom Fitton, the courageous Judicial Watch truth warrior, we now know that Hillary and the DNC accused candidate Trump of doing exactly what they were doing themselves. Karl Marx would be proud. ..
The only good news here is that the Leftist Democrat Party in the United States is easy to figure out. Just examine what they are accusing President Trump of doing and you will know exactly what they are doing themselves. Their formula is childishly easy to decipher.
