In the previous article, “Actions Speak Louder Than Words: Americans Are Suffering From Gaslighting” on Sons of Liberty Media, eleven techniques used by gaslighters were presented to make the people aware of these methods being used over the past decades by those in “official” positions that have ramped up considerably during the last 18 months. The definition of “gaslighting” was presented along with these techniques. A few of these techniques is covered in this article, with examples given, to show you how this has worked to manipulate the populace toward government established outcomes.
As a point of reference, gaslighting is defined as “ a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works much better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn’t realize how much they’ve been brainwashed.” [Emphasis Mine.]
These techniques were presented in no particular order in the previous article and will follow the same in this piece. Past examples of blatant lies will be used, outside of just the COVID narrative, in order to establish the narrative these techniques have been used for decaded.
They tell blatant lies, with a straight face, because they are establishing a precedent.
One of the best examples is the Gulf of Tonkin incident. It was a total fabrication to entangle the united States into the Vietnam war. Remember the lie of Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction? None were ever found, but it was the reason used to invade Iraq. What about the statements declaring the southern US border “secure”? The evidence would suggest otherwise. Does anyone remember all the statements reassuring the public that elections were secure and devoid of fraud? Blackboxvoting.org uncovered that lie years ago and we see today the “fraud” that occurred in the 2020 election and just how “unsecure” elections truly are. How many times has it been said that approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) establishes “safety” of medications? Yet, lawyers advertise on television for individuals who have been injured or suffered adverse events by taking “safe” FDA approved medications. The list is too long to cover here. With the rollout of Obamacare, how many times was it stated that the cost of the healthcare insurance would be no more than a cell phone bill and people would actually save money? We all know how that turned out.
How many times did the public hear about the deadliness of SARS-CoV-2? How many times has the public continued to hear it? We’ve heard that masks prevent infection and transmission; prolonged mask wearing does not cause harm; social distancing keeps you safe; quarantining the healthy and sick is the best way to “quell” the disease; and, it takes 15 days to flatten the curve. None of this was based on any “scientific fact”. Quite the opposite was true. The “science” revealed all of these statements were blatant lies told to the public to establish a precedent. At first, the public was told this microorganism escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China. Then, the narrative changed to this occurring in nature. This went on for months, until Fauci decided to say this was from a lab leak in Wuhan. No proof has ever been presented to confirm any of these narratives. Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin were ostracized by claiming there was no “proof” of effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 despite field observational studies by numerous medical professionals worldwide who used those medications. Those field observational studies were confirmed by controlled trials; yet, the narrative remains the same in order to push an injection using new technology.
The Operation Mockingbird media has parroted the FDA narrative that the Pfizer “vaccine” was approved. This has been repeated by the regime, Fauci, the CDC and every cohort of Big Pharma. However, as we have shown, the “vaccine” approval is only for Comirnaty, the BioNTech product only available in Europe, while the Pfizer product remains under Emergency Use Authorization as well as all other products – Moderna, J & J, Astrazeneca.
These were blatant lies establishing a precedent – getting you to believe something as true at the time, when it was actually false to serve the agenda established by government. Once you believe these things as fact, it’s difficult to see the truth when it is revealed. When that truth is revealed, it creates confusion. This is by design. It brings us to the next technique.
They are aware that confusion weakens people.
When you are confused then weak, these same entities/people come back as the answer to the problem they created. Often, they will cite “new studies”, recently “discovered” information, etc.
We heard that Obamacare would mean that everyone had access to health care. Everyone already had access to health care. What was left out was that everyone is “required” to purchase health care insurance or be fined. People then turned to the same government that deceived them for a solution. While the individual mandate was ceased, the legislation that was Obamacare remained fully in place, with all the regulations determining who would get care and how much – rationed care. The people cheered thinking Obamacare was no more, when in actuality it remains in place.
Fast forward to the narrative of SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, treatments and abatement measures for the same being disseminated to the public including the recent FDA approval, which is not an approval, for the “Pfizer” injection being called a “vaccine”. Many are not aware of the changes made to the terms “vaccine” and “pandemic” unilaterally made by a handful of individuals to cement a narrative and pre-determined course of action for a desired outcome. This is a deliberate means to generate confusion in order to weaken people to accept a premeditated government/world organization course of action(s). It is the same with the FDA approval non-approval, which used a bait and switch tactic through a lateral fake pass to “persuade” more individuals to seek the government driven solution. Many individuals do not have the time or will not take the time to verify the information for themselves. These gaslighters know this and count on it.
Part of this same confusion is rapidly changing information without any evidence to back up the information. Confusion creates uncertainty, which in turns creates weakness. A weak person is much easier to manipulate. People then become the “frog in the frying pan” or “frog in a slowly heating pot” analogy.
They wear you down over time.
After 15 days to “flatten the curve” turned into 520+ days, the “mask on/mask off” narrative, the “wear two masks” initiative, to “mandates” and “requirements” beginning and ending or continuing relentlessly, the confusion mounts to the point an individual becomes so weak that individual is worn down to “accept” whatever solution is presented to return to “normalcy”. Individuals willingly relinquished their rights and liberties under the guise being presented by the gaslighters – “if you care about your family and others, you will do your part to protect them from this ‘deadly’ illness”. The fact that this “illness” was no more deadly than the common flu was skillfully hidden from the people. Yet, the public bought it. Small business owners closed their businesses as the “authorities” determined who was essential and who was not – an authority they do not possess. While big box corporation stores remained opened, declared “essential”, small businesses were determined otherwise.
The people were inundated with “rising case numbers” and an increasing death toll using methodologies anathema to medical science. Where before a case meant an active infection, a case now meant whatever was useful to furthering the narrative. Improper means were used to determine a “case” and improper means were used to increase death tolls. Despite all the information to indicate the truth of the matter, people have been so worn down they still quote inaccurate numbers. Even when the CDC admitted the truth on the death toll, people are loathe to accept it, quoting the false numbers on deaths. These same people repeat the “safe and effective” narrative surrounding these injections.
The people were told a “vaccine” would allow a return to normalcy and 70% of the population would need to be injected to achieve “herd immunity”. Many accepted this only to find the goalposts moved and discover a new narrative emerging in the form of “variants” with increasing the percentage of the injected population to achieve “herd immunity”. Then, herd immunity was presented as a “falsity” and only an injected population would stop this “illness”. Yet, again, the narrative on these injections change depending on who is presenting the information. The CDC claims these injections do not prevent infection or transmission while others say it does. Increased confusion results in increased weakness, which results in people being worn down to the point of engaging in an action presented by the gaslighter. And, we cannot forget the narrative surrounding “asymptomatic” transmission – a definitive lie since asymptomatic individuals are not sick.
People have effectively been worn down to the point they actually believe a man-made injection will provide better immunity than one’s own immune system, when all information gathered over decades confirms the opposite.
While all of this is going on, they are using things you hold dear against you.
They use things near and dear to you as ammunition against you.
With the attack against the united States on September 11, 2001, the desire for safety was used against the people to implement egregious violations against God-given individual unalienable rights recognized, protected and guaranteed in the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America. In order to board an airplane, one had to submit to illegal search and seizure, atrocious body violations that would cause others to be arrested for molestation, illegal surveillance, intrusion into one’s privacy and other measures that could place someone on a “no-fly” list without due process. Fear was also used. It proved to be effective and spread like wildfire to other areas.
The same thing happened with the narrative on the SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. Children, the elderly, and family were used as a means to illicit compliance with ridiculous measures touted to rid the country/globe of an illness. You know the narrative – wear a mask to protect those you love; maintain social distancing to prevent spreading this illness; forego family get-togethers and large gatherings; don’t visit the elderly in care facilities because you may transmit this illness to the vulnerable; everyone stay home since everyone is a potential carrier; and, on and on it goes. It culminated in the narrative that the only way to “get your liberties back” is to take an injection. Yet, that is now changing to “boosters” will be needed every five months.
There is no end to the gaslighting of the people until the people see it and rise against it.
The next piece will cover four more techniques of gaslighting with examples.
Gaslighting of the public has become standard operating procedure for all levels of government to ensure the people’s compliance with their agenda that has pre-established outcomes. It has been so effective there is no need for them to stop now. As you can see, many of these techniques overlap, making it difficult to discern which technique is being used. There is no denying the use of gaslighting even though the techniques overlap in many areas. When it is allowed to continue, it only gets worse. Sometimes the only way to stop the gaslighting is to separate and distance one’s self from the gaslighter. After that, there is a long period of recovery to eradicate a victim mentality.
Not all individuals have succumbed to the gaslighting. The reasons why vary. But, when some individuals have become victims to gaslighting, it can spell disaster for society or a group as a whole.
