1931 Germany - The Progressive Purge
Right-wing populist sentiment is being banished from American life by the brute force of social-media censorship. Along with that are a parade of media, Democrat politicians, former government bureaucrats and left wing activists, this is beginning to make America 2021 resemble, Nazi Germany, 1931.

When 'gaslighting' becomes 'lying', its evil.

from The Gray Area:

'Gaslighting' is a technique we have become familiar with in politics the past 50 years, as the media and politicians try to convince the public that what they actually see is not really happening. I guess the concept of reality is too much for us simpletons in America. In the world of politics, people say such diversions from reality are just 'political puffery'. Others might think that such diversions are simply lies. When, then, is a political statement actually false? As reported by FoxNews, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted yesterday that the border was not “open” and that anyone suggesting otherwise was doing the work of human smugglers. Is this just the press secretary 'gaslighting' the American people? We all know what really is happening at the border. Even California. Yet, she wants us to think it is not really happening, that millions have not really just walked across the border over the past 2 years and are now settled in every corner of the country. Illegal migrants in 431 of 435 congressional districts.

A perfect example of 'gaslighting', for sure.

When, then, is a political statement actually false? Obama said you could keep your doctor when he pushed through Obamacare in 2009. In truth, you could not. Is that a lie or is that just politics? That was not a firing offense, though it should put everyone on notice that Obama cannot be trusted. The media convinced the American people that President Trump was a serial liar, when, in fact, he was not. But, if they say it over and over again and provide detailed fact checks, it has to become entrenched in the psyche. However, if you read the fact checks, you would see that what they call lies are actually just what they disagreed with. Kind of like Twitter or Facebook suspending users. We cannot let people with other opinions be heard. Interesting contrast that the media is not covering Biden's lies the same way, now are they? Is that 'gaslighting' or is that covering up his miscues? Ignoring them is a better description. Is omission a lie? Didn't Trump's political foes and the media impeach Trump twice, once for a phone call and once more, because they could? Can you impeach a politician for telling an actual lie to t e American people? Or, many lies? Obama & Hillary did with Benghazi, but no consequences for lying. Primarily because the media covered for them. Yesterday, Karine Jean-Pierre gave us the best example of late. Telling the public that something true, was not true. That is a lie! And simultaneously, she said everyone who was telling the truth was guilty of 'misinformation'. Wow, providing 'misinformation' and accusing those who disagree of spreading 'misinformation'. The opposite of reality. Hard to keep up with the misdirection plays without a scorecard. But, not everyone will know that. If you check the left wing media today, CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, WaPo, and others, the top story is Trump's taxes possibly being released to the public. If you search those sites for Karine Jean-Pierre's press conference comments yesterday, you cannot find it. No wonder no one on the left realizes what is actually going on at the border. Will there be consequences of any kind? Of course, not. Every communist regime, and the Nazi's, did this same thing. It is a tyrannical tactic. Propaganda, gaslighting and hiding facts from the public about what is really going on, with the help of a compliant media, is the worst type of lie. Like the Nazi & communist regimes of the 20th century, it is evil!
