LR Podcast, S2, E25: Projection, always (with the Left)

Projection is the process of displacing one’s feelings onto a different person, animal, or object. The term is most commonly used to describe defensive projection—attributing one’s own unacceptable urges to another. For example, if someone continuously bullies and ridicules a peer about his insecurities, the bully might be projecting his own struggle with self-esteem onto the other person. The concept emerged from Sigmund Freud’s work on defense mechanisms and was further refined by his daughter, Anna Freud, and other prominent figures in psychology.” — Psychology Today

When the left/Democrats accuse the Republicans of doing or being something, i.e. racist, fascist, etc., they themselves are guilty of it. They always project their faults on others, and there are no exceptions, even when they accuse Trump and other conservatives of being fascists. Anyone who’s studied historical fascism can see that the left increasingly is showing fascistic tendencies. I would define fascism, based on history (as opposed to propaganda) As: 1. Authoritarian 2. Collectivist, and 3. Micromanagement of business, as if the government served on every board of directors. They believe in the supremacy of the state and the needs of the state (collective) over the needs of the individual.
