Well, I et all the bacon, and the cashew dish is nothing but a few grains of salt. So, let’s get started. First topic up: PROJECTION. I will attack these tactics from both the macro level – politics and the Church, specifically, and then from the micro level, so that we can understand and fortify ourselves against diabolical narcissists that we encounter directly (or have already encountered) in our own lives.
First, Projection. Projection is when someone accuses you of doing the bad things that THEY do, or of possessing the character flaws that THEY possess. I found this definition that I think sums it up very well:
“Projection: A defense mechanism narcissists use that involves condemning others for their own emotions, traits, reactions and behaviors. A narcissist projects without being provoked. Although the narcissist may project their positive attributes onto you (mirror image), most of the time they are scraping the mud off of themselves and smearing it onto you. Everything they say precisely describes them, but it mind screws you so bad it may leave you asking yourself the question, ‘Am I the narcissist?’”
