The Three D’s of Supremacist Psychological Warfare
This is big. Have you ever tried to explain your plight and struggles to a white person only to have them tell you that “it’s all in your imagination?” Or what about, “you’re making a big deal out of nothing?” Well if you have, welcome to the denial strategy. Denial is a powerful tool used for confusion and casting doubt. Having the victim doubt themselves renders them vulnerable and susceptible to your brainwashing. It also inhibits others from coming to their rescue, which leaves them defenseless. That includes the brainwashing techniques of :
a. The backhanded compliment, “Oh…you speak so well!”
b. The passive-aggressive act of psychological violence, “Excuse me, Reggie? ( in front of your peers) Your ideas are not coming across very clearly.”
c. The mob mentality or “ganging-up” on someone, “It’s true, everyone agrees that Keisha isn’t right for the job.”
Don’t be fooled. In AmeriKlan, where this system is rampant and inborn, trust your gut instincts to pick up on that “vibe.” And if anyone tries to dissuade you from your own instincts…run.
This is a common and well know tactic. Ever tried to relay a story about being followed in a store and your white counterpart interjects, “But that happened to me too!” Or, “Well, I don’t see how that’s racist because Tim is just an asshole.” This tactic of mental warfare is done on purpose to make your plight seem:
d. To undermine the seriousness of your struggle
The worst thing a white supremacist wants to hear, is that you are on to them. By deflecting your plight, shame and anger, it makes you feel as if your feelings and statements are simple hyperbole. It is done to invalidate you. Don’t fall for this strategy. This also tricks you into having a debate with them…to further educate them on just how AWARE you are of their trickery. This is where I fall prey. At times, my temper and, unfortunately my ego, get the best of me and I get sucked into an argument with the very person who wishes to see me destroyed. It is only after I am seething, that I realize that I’ve been had. I tend not to argue with my own kind, this is counter-productive, especially when I see that they too are victims of this disease, instead compassion and education is the way to go…except in the case of the Black Anglo-Saxon( a post to come this week ). Remember the line in Godfather where Marlon Brando tells Sonny, played by Jim Caan, “Never tell anyone outside the family what you’re thinking!” Well, keep your business within our family and don’t get sucked into it. I will fight hard to remember this in the future.
This is an obvious one and it stings the ego. Have you ever been in the midst of a story or explanation of how you were treated because of your colour and a white person, purposefully, begins to spew facts on black crime rates and gangs? You stop in mid- sentence and go:
“Hey…wait a minute…I was talking here. WTF?” Well, my sisters and brothers, this clever tactic is done to derail the honesty of your statements, to throw the focus off of them and bring the focus on how you and your people are the cause of your own issues. You are your own worst enemy…and if you could just realize that, all would be well with Oz. I remember the white girl, it’s mostly white women where I’m concerned, who cut me off in mid-sentence during my explanation of racial profiling to tell me that Africa was the number one country in the world that rapes women.
As if one had anything to do with the other! But this is what they do….and we, if not armed with knowledge on how to recognize its signs and the reasons why they do it, will fall prey…again and again.
