Slander Tactics

October 15, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Stripped of context, the victim’s reactions appear to be unprovoked—as if out of the blue and without reason—with deceived bystanders, unaware that they are being used as pawns, hopping onto the bully’s bandwagon as a possible result, strengthening his position and making his victim look like the wrongdoer.

Slander (album)“OMG yes, before I finally resolved to go NC all the way and blocked his calls and texts, he would text me nasty remarks to which I replied in the same vein. I later learned he’d shown the reply texts to others without showing the one’s he’d sent to me first, which were obviously meant just to goad me into responding so he could say “see, she won’t leave me alone, she’s stalking me”. I still haven’t gotten over my anger at this and everything else he’s done. Some days are better than others; today’s a bad one.”

Socio/psychopaths lack empathy and moral values. They have no qualms about using dirty tricks to get the upper hand and they have no remorse when they cause suffering to others.

    Facts are not slander.

    Another way abusers maintain control is by getting their victims to stay silent about the abuse they are enduring. Abusers hate being exposed for who they are. They prefer to be able to continue to abuse unopposed. They especially prefer to continue the charade of upstanding citizen in public, while they abuse their loved ones behind 4 walls.

    When a victim finally is able to tell someone about the abuse, the abuser then falsely accuses the victim of slander.

    A problem.

    There’s a big difference between whistle blowing based on truth and smear campaigning based on lies and lies of omission.

      I agree 100%; this is a huge problem. As things stand, the abusers have the upper hand because they typically are more verbal, vocal, manipulative, and deceptive than their chosen targets. Their nasty strategies are all well rehearsed and their victims get the double whammy of abuse + humiliation for objecting to the abuse. As far as I can see, there is only one way to turn this scenario around: widespread knowledge of socio/psychopathic behavior patterns. Unprecedented in human history, victims of abuse have a safe public arena for sharing experiences on the Internet. Keep the conversation going! Social network! It will have an impact.

    A family member set me up like this. First he sent a lame video which I replied to, then stonewalled so I replied more in depth to continue the conversation, then he showed one section to other people and wa-la, now I’m the attacker instead of their target. JERKS. The innocent learn, but seems like after the damage has been done we figure it out and they’ve gotten away with lies, fraud, and hurting ones we love. 😦 Now they join the abuse forums that should be a place of refuge for victims and post crap there get people into trouble, report IP to facebook, flag posts, etc.

    Thanks for sharing your “baiting and bashing” experience. What I think disturbs me the most, is that they become so skilled at this dirty trick that they can pull it off again and again. Luring bystanders to their side makes them hard to beat, and it can be devastating for their victims. Our only hope of defeating such nastiness, I believe, is through widespread awareness of the mechanics. Share your story all over the web!
