I think we are all feeling disgruntled and downright scared about the presidential election and the future of the country. Perhaps it’s because the media and our government have been ”gaslighting" us.
Gaslighting is one of these bits of internet jargon and it means to withhold factual information or life to the intended victim of gaslighting to cause the gradual effect of making them anxious, confused and unsure of their own memories and perception. Does that sound familiar?
Peggy Ryan thinks the media has been gaslighting us about Hillary and the Obama administration has been gaslighting us about, well, everything.
Peggy Ryan provides numerous examples of this gaslighting in her article “The DC Gaslighting District.”
So no, you're not imagining it. Our government is indeed lying to us, straight up. You've witnessed it firsthand time and again. And yes, the once free press is interfering in our election by shielding Hillary from scandals. Those scandals are conspicuous by their absence in the media. And yes, the polls are being manipulated. And yes, there is widespread voter fraud. Trust your perceptions; follow your instincts. You're not wrong.
