The media is not the only one capitalizing on sensationalism and manipulation as tools to bully. This type will create scenarios to produce the outcome they want, which is typically to shame another to get what they want. We all saw this one bully in school, but more and more this wicked trait creeps into society. Infesting local communities all the way to the top. I think Rahm Emanuel said “Never let a good crises go to waste.” This type preys on those with weak and poor self esteem and pushes them into his or her agenda. While denying responsibility wreaking havoc. Quick to act in a crises portraying victimhood and blame. Before you know it the bully has a mob behind them demanding justice for what they paint as truth and injustice and no one knows or remembers the truth. Leaving all those in the path shaking their head and wondering what in the world just happened. Its happening in our community and our country. Fueled by fear, bittnerness, hatred and rage. Satan is elated. Dont take the bait.
Look at the definition of manipulation : to manage or utilize skillfully
quantify our data and manipulate it statistically — (S. L. Payne),
to control or play upon by artful, unfair, or insidious means especially to one’s own advantage,
to change by artful or unfair means so as to serve one’s purpose.
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
