Gaslighting… it is a term that became prominent once Donald Trump took office, and it is running like wildfire among the Democrat Party today.
Oddly enough, they are not only gaslighting conservatives, but now they are gaslighting members of their own party, including Joe Biden.
The latest example being comments made by Rep. Primila Jayapal (D-WA) to Joe Biden regarding his hardline stance backing Israel.
Publicly, Joe Biden has been unwavering in his support of Israel, and I say publicly because of the reports of what has been happening behind the scenes.
There have also been some public slips, such as Secretary Blinken suggesting on X that PM Netanyahu should seek a cease-fire (that post was later taken down).
Squad members have not been shy about their desire for Israel to call a cease-fire, as though Hamas would respect it. Even so, they are putting the onus of this on Israel as well as calling out Biden for criticizing their comments on this.
Jayapal and other Squad members are now suggesting that the Muslim community will back away from Biden over this, more or less threatening him that they will not support his re-election campaign if he continues to stand by Israel.
This is Jayapal on “Meet the Press” this weekend…
WATCH: @RepJayapal (D-Wash.) has been "one of President Biden's biggest supporters" but worries that his response to Israel will cost him support from Arab and Muslim voters.

I bring up her comments specifically because of the wording that she used and how Democrats attacked Donald Trump on this front.
Are these actually not just threats to pull support but also to activate an uprising in this country in the Muslim community?
I would also suggest that Democrats will use this as a way to create hostilities toward Muslims in communities, hoping that they get extremists on the right so riled up that they start to physically attack these people.
This is gaslighting at its finest, and I just hope people are smart enough to stay away from the bait that has been put out there by this radical wing of the Democrat Party.
