How To Stop Being A Scapegoat and Stop Being Scapegoated

Are you the scapegoat in your social group? Were you considered the problem child growing up? Are you constantly blamed for family problems? Blame and Shame are the primary aspects of scapegoating. In this episode, Teal Swan explains that what most people don’t see is how the scapegoat perpetuates the blame in order to stay safe in social situations.

Let’s talk about Saul Alinsky, rules, and manipulation….

I’m a lifelong Democrat. The first time I ever heard of Saul Alinsky was from a conservative I worked with who was fearmongering about Obama and Hillary. I’ve yet to hear any Democrat today extol the virtues of Alinsky. He’s not exactly a major figure among the moderate or radical left. As you said, he’s basically just a boogeyman for conservatives.

 

I’ve talked with many of these “useful idiots” over the last decade or so. They throw out Propaganda at me, just like they did to Beau here. When I respond, explaining why what they’re saying isn’t true, lots of them get mad at me (lol). Some even throw out supposed insults to me (eg. liberal, socialist or even libtard!). When I hear these supposed insults, I know they’ve got nothing left to say.
As always, accusations from the right are 💯 confessions. My narcissist ex had the same modus operandi.
That was pretty hilarious. I’ve never read Alinsky, but as soon as the thing about poverty came up I started smiling, such a load of horsepoo xD
I’m glad you mentioned Newt Gingrich. From my vantage point here in SoFla, Newt is the ONLY person interested in Alinsky. References to Alinsky by others serve as Newt’s spoor, indicating that he was in the area recently.
Yup, control by fear, a favorite gop trick.

Police attempt to intimidate, but victim thanks cameraman

 

The officer kept telling everyone that the auditor was immoral, yet the officer was the one who was immoral. Kudos to the woman for standing up to the officer and telling him he is the problem.
Great to see an informed citizen. Even in distress she was alert enough to see through his manipulation.
Absolutely nothing this cop said has any basis in reality or law. It should be terrifying to anyone who sees this to know this person wears a badge. He’s delusional.
What a baby! I can understand if peeps is getting all up in you grill, but to be just standing there. This Officer has real big issues that should be addressed.

 

Silence is undefeated, it can’t be beaten.

 

“That’s fine. It’s not me, it’s you.” LOL Love that the poor girl knows that he is recording for her safety as well. Cant trust these officers nowadays. :/ I wish that wasnt the case.

 

That cop was about to lay some serious BS on that lady to get her to talk.. and he didn’t want it recorded. To her credit she knew the camera was good for her and bad for the cop.

 

Yeah she’s certainly upset Officer, because of you, not the auditor.
It tells a lot when a police officer is so concerned that he’s being recorded.
“This man exploits people for a living”. Oh, the irony 🙄

 

Defense Counsel: “Exactly what did Jorge say that impeded your investigation?” Officer Linn: “He remained silent.” Defense Counsel:: How did Mr. Sabarrio physically impede or obstruct your investigation?” Officer Linn: “He was standing there on a public sidewalk filming.” Proof positive that single-digit intelligence qualifies you for the Sarasota Police Department.
This cop manipulates, intimidates, threatens, abuses his authority, and gets off on exerrting his power. Essentially a sociopath and should be in any authoritative position.
“I’m more comfortable standing right next to this guy recording because I trust a random stranger more than I trust the police”
Look at the officer face when the victim thanks the guy for recording…….
Every vile thing the officer said about the camera man was exactly what I saw in this officer’s actions. He was disrespectful and manipulative and traumatised the victim more than she needed to be. He had no decency or regard for humanity. What a vile creature. He protected no one and served his own narrative.
wow. just wow. this cop, escalated the situation for NO REASON. the fact that the cop told the witnesses, that the cameraman is there to obstruct, could’ve cause them to even attack him. And when the women thanked him, jeez, i would’ve loved to see the cops expression up close. Well done. keep it up.
Cop: “I’m giving you a “lawful order” that i know is not a lawful order. Total POS.
Pure Narcissistic, that’s exactly what that Tyrant Cop is, well done to this Auditor….!!
Anyone else catch how he was trying to dox the Youtuber. He kept stating his Full name..
The officer is inciting hatred towards a member of the public.
Police are becoming more despicable than ever. Instead minding his own business he completely disregards the victim and goes on a power trip. In the light of Uvalde incident I totally lost my respect and confidence for police. I realize police are NOT here to PROTECT the public or to uphold the law.
getting pretty bad for the cops when the victim(s) feels more comfortable with a cameraman around and not the police.
We can all only wish someone is recording, should we be interacting with law enforcement. Pretty sure a camera on scene has saved many lives and has kept countless innocent people out if jail.
The lady was already on the ground crying when the camera walked up and the public servant tried to say it was the cammer who was causing her to cry. This public servant is everything that is wrong with policing in America.
Yep! Unlike the cops’, his recordings are readily available.
Cop put me in handcuffs deleted the video on my phone said if i want to make it hard on him hes going to make it hard on me. Still fighting the charges to this day and i couldn’t be more innocent
 @FryTheFly  Dont’ just record, livestream. Then he can only stop it, not delete it. And he’s caught stopping it which, besides being a civil rights violation, also is tampering with evidence.
 @FryTheFly  I’ve heard that same line for refusing a vehicle search. Sad state of affairs when standing up for your rights is “making it hard on the police”. Good luck bud!
Ma’am do you want to move over here?” “No, I’m comfortable here…” ROFL the cop STILL can’t get it through his head that the videographer is welcomed even after the victim thanks him for doing so. AMAZING
Props to the lady for knowing what was up. I hope she got everything sorted out and all is good with her now. #StayStrongSister
He should really read carefully and with thought the legal definition of “interfering with an investigation” in the pertinent law.
When she said no, there exploiting you not me. That’s crazy considering her state of mind and can still come to the theory that officers can be exploited through Shere stupidity.doxing him like that aswell the officer deserved to get chinned for that.
“I’m comfortable right HERE” God, that ego has some bruises to heal after she just dismantled everything the cop tried to pull in one foul swoop…
he exploits people for a living”Officer you and your profession exploit WE THE PEOPLE to fill your coffers. I love when cops get 75 dollars an hour to stand on a road doing nothing while real men and woman workers fix the roads
“he exploits people with his camera” Who is he exploiting? I would welcome this camera man in any interaction i ve had with police. LIARS, needs to be on camera for public safety.
another clown cop barking orders and making up lies that needs retraining in the law……..and he threatens state attorney office review….lol
I had the greatest laugh when she says “thank you” to the auditor. Cop looked so defeated – lol.
That cop was so desperately in need for someone, ANYONE, to agree with him he just couldn’t stop spewing his garbage rhetoric from start to finish. Definitely the 1st to have his hand up tattling to teacher or mommy too. What an embarrassment he made of himself 🤬🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
WoW! When she said Thank You the Camera Man. It was a smack on the controlling officers face. What is the officer trying to hide? He afraid of a camera? She was not, she was happy and felt safer to know that there was recording for transparency.
“charges have been filed with the state attorney’s office.” L O L
Hahahahahahaha what a joke! Cops are always on a power trip! Intimidating and ridiculous
Even the lady knows he recording the cops. She literally says it’s for you guys not me and then thanks him for recording..
“This man exploits people for a living”. That’s pretty funny coming from a cop.
You know when a Cop acts like this that he was planning to jack a citizen up. The guy filming keeps them honest and they dont like that. Well done Chan Chan. That Cop need to be dealt with for trying to turn people against the Camera man. What a Disgrace he is
again the officer projecting their own insecurities on someone else. “this man exploits people for a living” “you’re causing all this” ” you have no decency for human beings” all the officer projecting his own issues onto someone else to make himself feel better
Cherry on top was the officer asked to “stand by him for safety” and she basicly said “no I feel safer with the auditor.”
That cop is just like your friend’s mean dad who always needed to control everything and was always “right”. Scary AF.

Narcissism, Lies & Delusion | Dr Frank Yeomans

Frank Yeomans describes the difference between lies and delusion (and psychosis) within narcissistic pathology, with several clinical examples focusing on employment situations from his Transference-Focused Psychotherapy practice.

Why do people delude themselves? What is the real purpose of narcissistic lies or delusions? How are they different from psychosis? What is their impact on relationships? Does lying to people mean you are antisocial or have NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder)? How should a therapist handle a client who is delusional?

Who Is Jonathan Pentland? Army Sergeant Charged With Assaulting Black Man in Viral Video

Comments: Rational National

Social media accounts connected to Pentland showed that he has been stationed as a drill sergeant at Fort Jackson since 2019, according to the Associated Press. Fort Jackson is the largest U.S. Army basic training base.

Video (detailed below) of the incident shows Pentland asking Deandre what he is doing in the neighborhood before repeatedly telling him to “go away.” The footage does not capture what prompted the altercation.

Two other reports were also made against Pentland that alleged incidents of assault against the victim, Richland County Sheriff’s Department told Newsweek. Those incidents are each being investigated independently.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott confirmed Pentland’s arrest on Wednesday, telling reporters, “The first time I saw the video, it was terrible. It was unnecessary.” He added: “We’re not going to let people be bullies in our community.”

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department described the video as “disturbing” in a tweet issued on Wednesday, promising they “have taken this incident seriously.”

Officials at Fort Jackson also said they were looking into the incident, adding that U.S. Department of Justice authorities were investigating as well.

“This type of behavior is not consistent with our Army Values and will not be condoned,” the official Fort Jackson Twitter account posted on Wednesday, noting that they are aware of the video and “will work closely with each law enforcement agency as investigations move forward.”

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news conference Wednesday, “The first time I saw the video, it was terrible. It was unnecessary.” He added: “We’re not going to let people be bullies in our community.”

After watching the video, Fort Jackson Commanding General Brig. Gen. Beagle, Jr. said the actions were “by no means condoned by any service member.”

He later released a statement on Facebook, writing: “I remain deeply concerned for the members of our Army family, the young man and his family, and the tensions that activities like this amplify over time; please be patient as facts are determined.”

On Facebook, Johnson said she and a friend had been walking in the neighborhood on Monday when they saw what was happening. Another woman filmed the video, Johnson said, and she posted it with her permission.

She saw the young man in distress and knew he didn’t do anything wrong so she started videoing for his safety!” Johnson wrote.

Johnson said the video did not capture the man slapping Deandre’s hand, prompting his phone to fall to the ground and crack.

She added that she waited at the scene until an officer arrived, and repeatedly told them that Deandre had been assaulted. “The officer told us that his supervisor told him that he could only charge the white guy with malicious injury to property and not assault!” Johnson wrote.

She said she and a friend “circled back to get him out of that situation bc we refused to see D go to jail or lying there dead simply bc he was black. The only thing he did was be black while walking!!!”

Newsweek has contacted Fort Jackson, Johnson, the Richland County Sheriff’s Office and the Columbia Police Department for comment.

What happened?

In the video, Deandre tells Johnson to call the police, and a woman—identified by Pentland as his wife—says that they have already been called. Then, Pentland is seen shoving Deandre.

The couple accuse Deandre of “picking fights” with people in the neighborhood.

“What is it that you are doing here?” Pentland asks Deandre.

“Walking,” Deandre replies. “Then walk,” Pentland says.

“Well you’ve been here like 15 minutes now,” Pentland’s wife interjects.

Pentland continues: “Walk away. Walk away right now. You need help?.. I’m happy to help.”

He then denies hitting Deandre, adding that “there’s a difference between pushing you.”

He then accuses Deandre of “aggressing on the neighborhood” and, as Deandre moves a little closer to his wife, he shoves Deandre in the shoulder.

“You better walk away,” he says. Raising his voice, he ads: “You walk away. You’re talking to my wife right now.”

He continues: “Check it out, you either walk away or I’m going to carry your a** out of here.”

You better not touch me,” Deandre tells him, remaining calm throughout the video.

Or what?” Pentland replies. “What are you going to do? Let’s go, walk away… I’m about to do something to you. You better start walking… You’re in the wrong neighborhood motherf*****. Get out.

I live here, sir,” Deandre tells him.

“Where? Where’s your house? What’s your address?” Pentland asks.

When Pentland again accuses Deandre of “harassing” the neighborhood, Deandre replies: “I’m not harassing anyone, I’m walking through the neighborhood, I live here, sir.”

Pentland said that he lives in a “tight-knit community,” adding: “We take care of each other… I have never seen you before in my life.

Getting up close to the Deandre’s face, he adds: “Check it out motherf*****, I ain’t playing with you. You either get your a** moving or I’m going to move youI’m about to show you what I can do. You better walk away. Walk away.”

He refuses to identify himself when asked by Deandre. “Are you an officer of the law?” Deandre asks him.

I’m about to throw you out… you wanna bet? I can do a hell of a lot more than you think I can,” the man responds.
