Projection and the Left

Robert Ringer writes in his blog on The Art of Vilification:

I've written extensively about teacher and student bullying  (The Cho Factor, Parts I-XXXIV), so what the Obamaviks are now doing rings a familiar bell with me. Almost without fail, the schoolyard bully, when confronted, accuses his victim of doing precisely what he himself is guilty of. And, sadly, all too often it works.

Whether it's Kathleen Sebelius calling town-hall protestors terrorists, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs chuckling and waving them aside as angry mobs, or the arrogant Wizard of Words in the Oval Office lashing out at Fox News, their tactics are childish, pathetic, and shameless.

Birthers … deathers … teabaggers … astroturfers … truthers … the left has an endless arsenal of epithets with which to vilify, discredit, and dismiss their dissatisfied employers. As Ann Coulter says, if you want to know what liberals are up to, just listen to what they accuse conservatives of.
