Of note, the KGB’s approach to political issues is to accuse the opposition of what you are doing, so the opposition would be called a hypocrite if they pointed to what is being done. Putin employees this technique a great deal in Russia and he employed it with the help of Paul Manaf…
So is the tactic of narcissists all over. Amazing how well it works. My ex-husband employed this technique during our divorce. Strike first, right? All the stuff HE was guilty of…my attorney told me not to say anything about what he had done because to the judge it would just look like I was slinging mud.
What HE said wasn’t considered mudslinging. It was considered fact, for the record.
Still infuriates me.
