There is a principle in psychology called “projection.” I once had a client that I asked what he was so angry about (he’d been loudly and angrily berating his wife and son). His face became red and he literally yelled almost at the top of his lungs, “I’M NOT THE ONE THAT’S ANGRY! SHE’S the one that’s angry!!!.” Projection is a type of defense mechanism in which one attributes one’s own traits or conditions to others, thereby shifting blame (or running a guilt trip on somebody else). Seems like the defense contractor employees (along with “students” all across our land in the institutions of “higher” learning) are engaging in a massive show of projection. The real deplorables are such a piece of work – but we’re stuck with them. They vote.
