Narcissism within the Democratic Party

Human relationships can be challenged when personalities represent different defining traits. People who are sensitive to other people’s feelings and want to help others are empaths.

The group most challenging for empaths to deal with are narcissists: people who focus on themselves or have excessive admiration of themselves. I am concerned when people who oversee making decisions for our country are obviously narcissistic, because the organization they run can also qualify as being a narcissist organization.

Definitions for individuals and how they apply to today’s version of the Democratic Party are:

1) BEING OVERLY BOASTFUL, EXAGGERATING ONE’S OWN ACHIEVEMENTS

President Biden blames Putin for gas being expensive, but it was Biden who shut down our own oil-producing advantages we had, and that action was the catalyst for inflation.

2) PRETENDING TO BE SUPERIOR TO OTHERS

With both parties being represented, when the Republican is talking, the Democrat sneers with a pinched-up smile and a shaking head, dismissing any facts presented by conservatives as “conspiracy theories.”

3) LACK OF EMPATHY FOR OTHERS

People of all colors were killed and injured in the riots (so-called protests) by liberals during the summer of 2020 while businesses, government buildings and vehicles were destroyed in liberal-run cities throughout the country.

Liberals immersed in hatred from their favorite news sources for both the president and the people who voted for him that it became fashionable for Democrats to disown important family members.

4) LOOKING DOWN ON OTHERS AS INFERIOR

Conservative voters were called names such as “Clingers” (for clinging to guns and Bibles), Deplorables and advocating for re-education camps for Trump voters.

5) MONOPOLIZING CONVERSATIONS

Whenever both parties are represented, the Democrat rudely interrupts.

6) IMPATIENT, ANGRY, UNHAPPY, DEPRESSED OR HAS MOOD SWINGS WHEN CRITICIZED

Democrats have physically attacked Republicans, kicked them out of businesses. Insulted them.

7) EASILY DISAPPOINTED WHEN EXPECTED IMPORTANCE IS NOT GIVEN

Pelosi’s mask mandate is an example. She is not to be questioned; but obeyed.

8) ALWAYS CRAVES FOR “THE BEST” IN EVERYTHING

Using taxpayer money, give “free” stuff to achieve reliance on the government.

9) HAS A VERY FRAGILE SELF-ESTEEM

I admit that I do not have an example to cite here.

MY ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS:

10) ACCUSES OTHERS OF WHAT THEY THEMSELVES ARE DOING/PRETENDING TO BE MEMBERS OF THEIR OPPONENTS’ PARTY

Only the Democrats judge people by whatever makes them unique individuals such as skin color. Republicans judge people only according to their character, per Martin Luther King Jr.

Democrats have presented as Republicans doing terrible things, then the media reports what they did as the work of Republicans. Examples: as a Tea Partier making racist statements, and locally, just before an election, Democrats paint swastikas on signs, and just to be sure people believe Republicans did it, this year they paint the letters “GOP” by the swastikas. Democrats may well be faking phone calls as Republicans.

Nationally Democrats try to destroy conservative candidates by pretending to be Republicans. A group, the “Lincoln Project” organized explicitly to destroy Trump, targeted other Republicans, for instance at a Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Youngkin’s campaign. They ADMITTED to this event.

Powerful Democrats orchestrated the Jan. 6 event to use the event to demonize Republicans.

The Democrats wasted four years and millions of dollars on their fake Russia connection assertions of our president, later proven to be lies with many compliant Democrats, many who have real Russian connections as well as their two futile attempts to impeach, one distracting their attention from the important problem of the immediate new coronavirus outbreak. Hunter Biden’s connection to illegal activity was deemed Russian conspiracy theory until his computer proved otherwise later.

11) IGNORING FACTS, INCLUDING HISTORY

Democrats were slave owners pre-Civil War; wanted the newly forming western states to be slave states, who after the Civil War formed the Ku Klux Klan, created the “Jim Crow” laws, refused to acknowledge the citizenship of the newly freed Americans, or babies born in America to be citizens, which gave rise to the 14th Amendment. They opposed integration.

The Republican Party was formed to stop the westward movement of both slavery and Mormonism. Over 700,000 people fought and died to stop slavery, including “freed” slaves. The composition of the Republican Party is not at all what the Democrats say but consist of all definable attributes. Many of the strongest conservative leaders were once Democrats. There are very few people who left the Republican Party for the Democratic Party.

12) MEDIA PROMOTION OF LEFTIST AGENDA

The followers of the toxic Socialist-Democratic Party have been influenced by a compliant media who are promoting the “Progressive Movement” to create a New World Order, the first step being to destroy capitalism and the United States and its constitution.

The rebuttal to a recent charge that Republicans were trying to invade the Democratic Party stated in the minimally read rebuttal that a sarcastic remark was made in response to inaccurate accusations but was reported as fact, and stated that most who changed their political party from Republican to Democrat, were in fact, Democrats who had earlier signed up as Republicans to influence the election in their favor.

Because of the problems with the new administration, some Democrats are becoming aware that the image of Trump supporters has been distorted and will understand that the people who voted for Donald Trump the first time (which is the only time we got to vote him in) were not necessarily in awe of the man and did not know exactly what we were going to get, but we knew that he was certainly better than having a Soros devotee become president. When President Trump had been in office for a while, we learned to appreciate what the man did to save our republic and our freedoms, and how he helped ALL Americans to live a better and safer life, and that is why we became his supporters.
