Trump supporters as victims of gaslighting


We who perceive that something is very wrong are opposed today at every turn. It wasn’t this way during the mid-2000s “war on terror.” Whatever Hollywood and the media say, nearly totally brainwashes the public.

It is easier for me to put things together in writing than in words. And so I find that articulating the scale of this thing sounds literally crazy. “There’s a massive coup going on” - yeah, right!

What I find is that if you study current events closely, the stress fracture in the narrative rupture fast. But most people don’t study current events closely.

Example. Two men came forward and admitted to being the actual culprits in the Blasey-Ford incident. Believe it or not, most people still do not know this.

So I have to learn to not only write these things, but say them out loud to people who are not already “awake.”

Compounding the problem is the amount of dirt that is being dredged up, with little clear outside validation. I feel very strongly about it, but let’s face it, it is difficult to say “President Trump was recruited by the military” without eliciting gigantic eyerolls.

Sorry to rant. I could use some advice on how to cope with this. I don’t have the tools to express everything cogently yet.

Here is an example of the gaslighting that goes on. DC area residents perceive a noticeable uptick in helicopter activity for years — but the Washington Post somehow can’t explain it; “VIPs”.

So what happens at least for me is that I babble on (“Babylon”) trying to explain myself — and it only sounds worse.

I’m just being honest here. I know it probably doesn’t make me sound too good, but it’s bothering me as a rationally-oriented person.
