Major1 wins COTW for clearly stating in colorful dialogue the unbending reality of leftoid psychological projection,
This entire post [leftoid envy post] can be condensed into a single, eternal truism.
Whatever a liberal/progressive says, they mean the opposite. Period.
There are only fifty-eight bazillion examples.
“Trump colluded with Russians”
Translation: “Hilary colluded with Russians”.
“The alt-right are fascists”.
Translation: “We are fascists”.
“Trump isn’t mentally healthy enough to be President”.
Translation: “Hilary’s seizure disorder, Parkinson’s disease, alcoholism, and inability to competently handle classified material makes her unfit for the Presidency”.
“Trump is a vulgar pussy-grabber”.
Translation: ” Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein,and Bill Clinton are vulgar pussy grabbers”.
We can pity our liberal friends, neighbors, and co-workers. That level of prevarication and cognitive dissonance must take a terrible psychological toll.
But just because we pity them doesn’t mean we can’t crush them, mercilessly, under our boots.
Freud really nailed it when he identified “psychological projection” as a real cognitive bias. (He wasn’t right about much else.) The affliction bedevils leftoids far more frequenlty and with greater intensity than it does conservatives. Why? Theory: leftoid will to power is based on phony moralizing, so they need a devious rhetorical trick to convince themselves and their enemies that they act with virtuous intentions. Believing one’s lies helps with that.
