Government Uses The Age-Old Bully’s Trick: Pretending the Victim Is the Attacker … and the Bully is Merely Defending Himself

The Bully Will Keep On Getting Away With Harassing Others Until People Stop Falling For His Victim Act

Police have recently stated on the record that:

Indeed, in modern America, even being worried that the government is acting in a bullying manner can literally get one arrested, committed to a psychiatric ward or labeled as a terrorist.

(Of course, if you speak out too much against the government, even worse things could happen to you.)

In other words, the government is using the age-old bully’s trick: pretending that the victim is the attacker, and the bully is merely defending himself.

The same is true in terms of our foreign policy.  For example, when we accidentally kill foreigners, we pretend that they were armed or  pretend that they were “militants”.

The government invaded Iraq because it claims Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and that he had a hand in 9/11 … but everyone knew that both claims were false.

The bully claims that “9/11 changed everything”, that we live in a “post -9/11 world” and that the Constitution is no longer realistic after 9/11. But the fact is that spying on Americans, the militarization of police, and the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran and throughout the Middle East and North Africa were all planned before 9/11.

And the bully’s pretense of victimhood goes even further …

Just as the murderers you’ve seen on tv will sometimes hit themselves with something to make it look like they were the one attacked, governments often attack themselves in order to drum up sympathy and a “justification” for “defending” themselves.   See this.

The bully will keep on getting away with harassing others until people stop falling for his victim act.

Postscript:   This is not a problem of one party or the other.  As Owen Jones notes today in the Telegraph:

Getting rid of Dubya wasn’t enough. The US remains a bully.

The issue isn’t Obama, any more than it was Bush before him. The issue is [the abuse of] US power.

Bush was a frontman for the bullies … just like Obama:

      The geoengineering is on ….. The RNC is fighting off a GOD that’s not in a very good mood …….. see here: (Scroll to the right and look under Florida, you can see the streaks demarcating weather mod efforts to tear up Issac.) ….. http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/full_loop.php (loop image 5:50 pm, PT) The RNC is going to learn that they are not more powerful than God, or the people he/she protects. Good Luck!

        It would be wise to avoid Issac …. better to regroup and nominate Ron Paul …..

          Or Better Yet ….. “The fact that Hurricane Isaac is threatening to derail the Republican convention may just be a coincidence, but it is sure is representative of what the GOP should except next week. The Paulian delegates and the presence of the P.A.U.L. Festival right next door, who are armed with passion and principles, are not going away quietly. Their presence alone creates the real storm that the GOP does not know how to handle.”

          “What if the hundreds of delegates Paul has accumulated, as well as uneasy Romney supporters, decide not to play ball and nominate Paul instead? Or short of something so drastic, raise hell at the convention when the laundry list of establishment and neocon Republicans are scheduled to speak?”

          just be safe …… my prayers are with you.

      Zionists were able to put blame on Muslims for theirs and Israeli crimes on 9/11 – thanks to their control over US lawmakers, CIA, FBI, DHS and Judiciary. However, FBI databook paints a very opposite picture. According to the database – between 1980-2000, Muslim extremists were involved 6% of total US terrorist activities as compared to 7% of Jewish terrorists.

      As far, non-Muslim minorities in Muslim nation-states – let us take the example of 30,000 Jews living in Iran. In 2007, a Jewish-Christian organization advertised a bribe of US$10,000 to every Iranian Jew who decides to immigrate to Israel. However, the bribe was rejected by the Jewish community leaders as an “insult to Jewish faith” and proclaimed that they prefer to live in their birth land.

      British-born Jewish journalist Roger Cohen in his OP-ED, titled “What Iran’s Jews Say”, published in the New York Times, on February 22, 2009 – wrote his trip to Islamic Republic which was quite different from Israeli narrative. Thus Roger was honored with the award of “self-hating Jew” by pro-Israel Jewish mafia.

      In addition to that, Lebanon’s president, the head of armed forces and interior ministe are Christians. Saddam Hussein’s vice-president Tarq Aziz and six of his ministers were Christians. Bahrain’s ambassador to Washington is Jewish. Pakistan has 18 lawmakers and one cabinet minister Christian. Iran always have three Christians and one Jewish member in Majlis (parliament) since 1979 Islamic Revolution. Indonesia and Malaysia have not only Christian and Hindu lawmakers – but high-ranking military officers, Nigeria has Christian President and Morocco’s ‘Islamist government; has a Jewish cabinet minister – and the list goes on.

      Now, let us compare the above with the situation in the Unites States. Jews who make less than 2% of country’s population – have 26 lawmakers in the Congress and Senate. Obama administration has 43% of its high-ranking officials either Jewish or married to a Jewish spouse – plus 4 Ambassadors. Muslims are the largest non-Christian minority (7-9 million) – and it has only two Afro-American lawmakers – plus one of Hillary Clinton’s spokespersons, who is married to a discredited former Jewish State Governor.
