Do you what I like best about that video ?
It was the letter his dad had written to his son cage . Talking about how he would watch him grow up .
Gage wasn’t worried about the words addressed to him .
Just watch him .
He was worried about his mom and how the words would impact her .
Cold chills ....
I noticed that too, and it brought tears to my eyes.
That boy is probably the most respectable person in the building. Putting his mother's pain before his own, at that age, is nothing short of heroic.
That's boy's got the weight of the world on his shoulders. Being a father of three boys myself, I can only imagine what his father must have felt up
there in heaven, watching his son taking this burden upon himself. He must be conflicted with pride, hurt, and frustration, all at the same time.
Cold chills indeed!
To think that that narcissistic monster sat through all those stories with that disgusting look on her face makes my blood boil.. Having some
experience with her type in my life, caused me to research Narcissistic Personality Disorder in depth. It's a fascinating subject, especially in these
times, because NPD is becoming epidemic. Understanding this disorder is essential in understanding what makes these monsters tick, and why there is no
hope for them to change.
I am going to be doing a thread on NPD soon, but for now, just have a look at the criteria for NPD in the DSM V:
"A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in
a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:
(1) has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate
(2) is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
(3) believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or
(4) requires excessive admiration
(5) has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her
(6) is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
(7) lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
(8) is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
(9) shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes"
You will notice that Nancy Pelosi shows ALL 9 of these traits in abundance. But there is much more to it than that. The important thing to understand
is that this disorder is actually a defence mechanism to prolonged early childhood abuse (physical, sexual, and/or emotional). Some victims react by
creating a fake personality that is all-knowing, all-powerful, like a god. Leaving the true personality with it's intrinsic emotions behind, and
continuing life as an empty shell with a mask. The true personality is hidden deep within, protected by the mask. In times of stress, or behind closed
doors, the mask will slip, and you will see that small, emotionally undeveloped child appear. That is what we see happening to Nancy during the SOTU,
and on many other occasions, especially when she is called out on something.
Most people think of narcissism as having an inflated ego, but actually the opposite is true. Hence the constant need for attention (positive OR
negative! it doesn't matter) and admiration, to keep the fake ego (the mask) in place. To a person with NPD, attention and admiration (narcissistic
supply) is very similar to drugs for a drug addict. Without them, they crumble.
More to follow soon, in a separate thread.
