Ever since senior counselor and head succubus in charge of propaganda Kellyanne Conway called blatant lies by press secretary Sean Spicer “alternative facts,” the two-word phrase has been popping up all over the place. There are memes such as these:
There’s even a trending hashtag on Twitter–#alternativefacts–which has been getting lots of notice in recent days.
But perhaps the best thing of all is the new website, appropriately named alternativefacts.com. If you go there, you’ll find it redirects to Psychology Today’s website, and the topic at hand is gaslighting:
Of course you’re dying to know what the 10 tactics are, so without further delay, here they are:
- They tell you blatant lies.
- They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.
- They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.
- They wear you down over time.
- Their actions do not match their words.
- They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.
- They know confusion weakens people.
- They project.
- They try to align people against you.
- They tell you or others that you are crazy.
- They tell you everyone else is a liar.
Sound familiar? Yep, because they’re exactly the tactics used by Trump and his paid shills anytime they open their mouths.
Something tells me the internet will play a big part in bringing down these weasels, and for that, we can partially thank whoever created alternativefacts.com. We applaud you!
