[….] …This term comes from the 1938 stage play Gas Light, in which a husband attempts to drive his wife crazy by dimming the lights (which were powered by gas) in their home, and then he later denies that the light changed when his wife points it out. It is an extremely effective form of emotional abuse that causes a victim to question their own feelings, instincts, and sanity. As a result, the abusive partner has a lot of power (and we know that abuse is about power and control). Indeed, once an abusive partner has broken down the victim’s ability to trust their own perceptions, the victim is more likely to stay in the abusive relationship…[….]
Sunday, from Mark Alford (r):
[July 29, 2023]
You must listen to this latest episode. Congressman Troy Nehls was inside the House chamber on Jan 6. He tells the truth about what happened that day.
What a dumbass. Was Troy Nehls (r) the only person there? How many members of Congress are there? Hint: the number is more than one.
There was a massive amount of publicly available and easily accessible media coverage in real time on January 6, 2021. We all saw it.
Some of the responses:
The truth was Trump** elicited a mob to sack the Capitol building and disrupt the electoral count.
And he still lost.
I trust Pence. I do not trust Trump**, and I have suspicions about any of his supporters.
If that’s really, what happened, why won’t they release all the January 6th tapes
Because you believe in conspiracies.
No amount of release will satisfy you.
that is an excuse not an answer
What prey tell will satisfy you?
people that blame Trump have a one track mind. Were you upset when rioters tore up cities and hurt civilians and officers alike?
The demonstrators didn’t seek to upend our democracy.
no they just sought out and hurt people and destroy property. Saying Trump made them is like saying a fork made someone fat. The people who stormed the capitol did so because they wanted to.
the rioters actually tried to physically hurt officers, which are defenders of our government
Correct. The January 6th rioters and seditionists actually tried to physically hurt officers, which are the defenders of our government.
There was more FBI in that crowd than you could shake a stick at. Try again, Trump ordered 10000 troops there. Nancy didn’t want it. Wonder why Nancy didn’t want them there. So they could do their fake insurrection. Release all the January 6th tapes.
Tell me where in the civilian chain of command, the speaker of the house vetos the president.
Since you believe the speaker has more military power than the president, your claim of FBI in the riot gets swept away as worthless.
That’s why they don’t want them released for 75 years. You seen chuck Schumer up on the senate floor crying the blues about trying to get it taken down. What they trying to hide.
McCarthy had 44,000 hours of video available to him since January.
He gave them to Tucker Carlson. Carlson then edited them to make his own fan fiction.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys have access to the same footage.
That footage was featured in over 600 convictions, and counting.
There is no exculpatory evidence that exists to support that this was not obstruction of congress and sedition.
Are you implying there is exculpatory evidence being suppressed?
Why would you ask such a stupid question like that? You know, they did even you know they did.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
They just require actual evidence. Not dumbass conspiracy theories.
I’m pretty sure it was all set up by the democrats Nancy Pelosi chuck scdumber Clinton Obama. There’s so many more involved. I’m pretty sure the little bit that Tucker Released on Fox kind of blows holes and everything they set up.
I have no idea the point of this drivel.
as you have no idea what you are talking about.
Tell me what I have no idea about.
It’s pretty well self explainatory. You don’t know what you’re talking about.
how would you know if I told you – you are clueless in your processes as a whole and lash out on narrative without knowledge. There is no arguing with you, there is no hope that you could even understand or even realize the truth. You are ignorant in your speculations and abhorrent in your discussions. You are like a 3rd grader in your understanding of the world.
Yet I’ve attacked your message while you attack me, meaning it’s time to introduce the concept of argumentum ad hominem.
Attacking the messenger is your only argument.
Citing logical fallacies is a waste of time when you’re dealing with someone who obviously slept through all of their classes.
So, Mark (r), do tourists always smear their shit on the walls inside the Capitol? Just asking.
