Bad Gaslighting Epidemic Sweeps The Elite

Bad Gaslighting Epidemic Sweeps The Elite, by Kurt Schlicter.

There are three questions that our terrible, terrible ruling class raises whenever it opens its collective kale-hole to lecture us: 1) Does the elite think we are really, really stupid, or 2) Is the elite really, really stupid, or 3) Is the elite all of the above? …

Here’s a fun test: can you name something – anything – major in the last two decades that our best and brightest have not screwed up? …

Gaslighting is their default move because gaslighting is all these losers have. It’s not like they can sit back and let you read their CV of achievements. Iraq, Obamacare, their annoying millennial kids…all disasters. The members of America’s current ruling class are King Midases of failure. Everything they touch turns to suck.

So, because they have no other way to deal with the damning evidence of their utter incompetence, our elite instead tries to convince us that we are crazy for noticing just how lame they are. That’s called “gaslighting,” the straight-faced denial of what’s happening right in front of you that tries to leverage your politeness and deference to convince you that it’s not the elite that’s rotten. You’re just crazy for noticing, you crazed crazy person of craziness. …

It’s bad enough that they lie to us, directly and by omission, all the time. But what makes it worse is how their lies are such glaringly obvious fabrications and/or dissimulations that the deepest insult is that they think we might believe them.

Sure, our elite is smoldering garbage, but what if it held unchallenged power? It would be a whole country that is Scat Francisco.

PC fantasies are lies that help the ruling class stay in power. So many fantasies! Need a bigger blog.
