    I spent some years with an abusive, emotionally manipulative person, and I completely agree. The gaslighting, victim blaming, imposition of shame, and denial of stark reality are absolutely textbook. But it's a large chunk of our country who is currently being manipulated, shamed, and intimidated into truculent compliance.

    What I still don't know is whether or not my abuser (and the so-called new right) know they're doing this. Is it a deliberate, conscious form of manipulation, or are they as taken in as their victims?
