‘Flying Monkeys’ or ‘Useful Idiots’


FlyingMonkeys 2

A manipulative narcissistic bully recruits the support of ‘flying monkeys,’ also known as ‘useful idiots.’

The participants; his friends, family, colleagues, or any other people in his proximity who are amenable to his persuasive powers, are the enablers who minimize or make up excuses for his bad behavior. They will side with the bully when he abuses you, and if you complain about being mistreated, they will berate you and give you the blame. When the abuser wants to get rid of you, his followers, too, will shun you.
