It is now factually and legally known that President Trump committed no crime. He did not (and as it turns out no one in his family or campaign did either) illegally conspire with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton. Trump cooperated in unprecedented ways with the Special Counsel and asserted no executive privilege to deny access to evidence. Trump, with the guidance of his attorneys, did decline to enter perjury traps set for him by the Special Counsel’s team of partisan attorneys. But the exercise of his First Amendment right to speak his innocence and declaim against the unfairness of what was happening, was no crime. He avoided indictment not because you cannot indict a sitting president, but because he committed no crime.
He was legally and factually innocent.
But that doesn’t matter. It never matters in the Progressive Projection Project. In the Project, you accuse your opponent of that with which you are most familiar — your own unlawful or unethical conduct. Are you a racist? Accuse your opponent of racism. Do you support violence? Accuse your opponent of supporting violence. Do you profit from your political activities? Accuse your opponent of profiting from their political activities. Have lust in your heart? Accuse your opponent of sexual impropriety. And so on and so forth.
The beauty of projection is its inexhaustible creative source: Mine your own soul for all the dirt to be thrown.
That is all you need to know to see what’s coming. When you hear any accusation simply ask yourself: Of which is it truer, that the accused or the accuser is guilty?
It will enlighten your viewing of the mainstream media. It will make the tedious reporting more interesting. It will inform with whom to trust the levers of power.Published in
