    Psychological deflection: Psychological deflection is blame-shifting, a narcissistic abuse tactic that is often used by narcissists but more respectively Covert narcissists in order to move attention for their bad behaviors away from them, and deflect it towards other people they use as their scapegoats. With this tactic, a narcissist attempts to control the mind and the emotions of everyone around him/her.
    Malignant Narcissism: a severe mental sickness representing the quintessence of evil and perhaps the most severe pathology and the root of the most vicious destructiveness and inhumanity.

    Hitchens' Razor: What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. If you make a claim, it's up to you to prove it, not to me to disprove it.

    Self-healing conspiracy theories are dangerous. You show someone proof that their conspiracy theory was wrong and then they will say that the people who provided the proof are in on the conspiracy and if it's a member of their team, they say that the other team got to them. It's endless. It's also a waste of time to convince someone they are or have been conned.

    “The glory which is built upon a lie soon becomes a most unpleasant incumbrance. … How easy it is to make people believe a lie, and how hard it is to undo that work again!”... Mark Twain

    A lie will have travelled around the world before the truth has its boots on.

    Empirical evidence is always preferable, as it is not easily controvertible. The Double blind experiments I participated in at the UNI. were always entertaining. Not so for Statistical Analysis, as manipulated Alpha levels can make an apple appear as an orange, theoretically, of course.

    So funny (pathetic) when you have video of an event and someone goes "Oh, that's not what happened."

    Even more funny (pathetic) when they blame it on “Imaginary Black Man”
