Simply put there are two types of people:
The Survivor: The smart, mentally strong individual who takes the bull by the horns. This person may not be strong physically; physicality seems to have less to do with survival than people think. It is the person who can keep his emotions in check, assess the situation, think outside the box, and take a lead in making their current state better than it was just a few minutes ago. This person’s forte is solutions.
The Victim: This person blames everyone but themselves for their situation in life, they have either had a bad upbringing, been a victim of the system, and they are always looking to “others” as a solution to their current state. This person could conceivable bench press 400lbs, but it makes no difference because their state of mind will lead to their downfall. This person’s forte is making excuses.
What separates these two groups is not training, strength, ability, intelligence or any of those obvious things we look for…it is initiative and common sense.

They knew there was a problem with this boss. I think they wanted me to inform them of what I knew, they kept asking, if he was the reason I was leaving. I said it was one of the reasons.

Find somewhere else to work...that's all I can say, because there are just toxic places to work, and no amount of effort will change it until there is someone in a position who actually cares who starts ridding the workplace of those people. If you don't have someone like that, then it's best if you leave.

Actions speak louder than words.
Like others have said, outperform them and make sure the appropriate people in the company take notice.
This is pretty common among workplaces.

This makes the work place a competition, a battle ground - it does not solve the problem - it makes it worse.
Has anyone heard the term 'equal opportunities'?
