Here’s an example of gas-lighting.
I was at the gym and was forced to see news coverage on a mainstream news channel. They were airing a report about an extremely obese individual who clearly had diabetic gangrene. The report, however, blamed the symptoms of the gangrene on COVID and made no reference to the extremely obvious morbid obesity of the person in question. We are supposed to disregard the evidence in front of us and pretend that this “otherwise healthy person” who weighs 400lbs is really suffering because of COVID.
And we’ve all seen these cases before. This is not in any way exceptional.
