Smear campaigners carefully and strategically use lies, exaggerations, suspicions, and false accusations to destroy your credibility. They hide behind a cloak of upstanding heroism and feigned innocence in an attempt to make as many people as possible think their efforts are based not on their vindictiveness, but on upstanding concern.
Abusive people enjoy this framing game. They provoke their chosen target for a reaction then claim it as evidence of mental instability, evil-mindedness, or something else that implies it is the victim who is at fault.
Diverting all attention away from their own behavior, the bully seeks support from others turning them against their target. It can be devastating for an individual who is already suffering from mistreatment to be blamed, slandered, rejected, and isolated as well. The abuser enjoys the sense of power and control they derive from tormenting with impunity, and the positive attention they get from playing the victim and fishing of sympathy.
It is also an effective method of intimidating their target from attempting to speak up and expose the truth.

It is said
Know them by their words and deeds
Trump says. Let them talk.
Its like this with abusive people. Dont interact with them
If need be. Knock them out. Number of ways to do that
Words. Fists. Weapons. That order.
I consider Judge Kavanaugh to be a good jurist, father, son and overall good human being. One word I do not immediately associate with him is conservative. From the summations of his work that I’ve read, I consider him to be more of a moderate in the mold of his mentor, Justice Kennedy. To those Democrats and activists seeking to block his confirmation, I would remind you to be careful what you wish for, as you just might get your way. What happens if the next nominee is a true conservative and there you stand, having spent your political capital on a moderate?
Maybe...but it upsets me to think Kavanaugh just get sent back to where he came from as damaged goods. It’d be nice that he be confirmed AND that this experience ground him in the reality of all the evil forces at work in our society and help him make clearer decisions for the country at large in the future...
With you on that.
Maybe he wasn’t as conservative as you would prefer. However, that may have changed recently. He is being attacked by moderates and liberals and even so-called conservatives. He is seeing first hand how evil the left is.
He was up until Thursday. Bet now he's itching to kick some socialist rat butt.
