Psychological projection is the theory in psychology in which individuals defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.
Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, with their unfounded and hard spun narrative regarding candidate Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, are a perfect case study in projection.
The Washington Post broke a story Tuesday night that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee funded opposition research that produced the infamous Trump Dossier that was chock full of outrageous allegations against Trump and fueled the collusion narrative that dominated mainstream media for months.
What’s more, the report raises questions about whether or not the FBI relied on the salacious dossier to obtain warrants to surveil Trump and his campaign operatives.
From the New York Post:
“Just as key congressional panels open new probes into the still-smoking debris of last year’s election, the revelation that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid as much as $9 million for the discredited Russian dossier on Donald Trump flips the collusion script on its head.
Now it’s Democrats’ turn in the barrel.
In short, we now have compelling evidence that the dossier was the largest and dirtiest dirty trick of the 2016 campaign. And Clinton, who has played the victim card ever since her loss, was behind it the whole time.”
In response, President Trump tweeted that he was the real victim of Russian collusion facilitated by Clinton.
Implications for Clinton remain unclear, but further probing by Congress is likely. The most worrying aspect of it all is the intimation that the FBI had been politicized under director James Comey to such a degree that they used flimsy opposition research from Trump’s opponent to secretly investigate him during the height of presidential contest.
Considering these developments, with more sure to come, what other mental maladies are Democrats projecting onto Trump and Republicans? Racism? Antipathy toward the poor? Corporatism?
One thing is for sure, Crooked Hillary is being revealed for the corrupt, law breaking, power hungry politician that the American people suspected her to be.
