"Gaslighting or gas-lighting is a form of psychological abuse in which a victim is manipulated into doubting their own memory, perception, and sanity. Instances may range from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim."
That's how Wikipedia defines it today. A good example of staged, bizarre events are the protests organized at RNC events. Interns were actually paid to attend, according to one email from the DNC comm director Luis Miranda. That was designed to create the illusion of a larger threat than was actually perceived by any present; or to alarm you and cause anxiety, in other words.
Other examples of bizarre, staged events include seat some 1,000 seat fillers hired by the DNC to replace the Sanders delegates who walked out on Hillary at the convention. They were there to pretend everything was alright, while the largest revolt in the DNC since 1968 took place outside. The DNC lost that year to Nixon, they will lose this one too.

Clinton relied on the fear of Trump to win her campaign. But people fear those who rig elections, and are unaccountable. People fear those above the law, they don't vote for them. As for the question of Trump winning or not, that has already been decided. He will, so in his case, people are falling in line. In Hillary's case, the house of cards has fallen. Trump would win by a landslide today. Already, die-hard democrats are admitting the wrong candidate was chosen from the beginning, and bracing for a Trump win.
The DNC can't easily rig the national election, especially now that we know that Karl Rove was working with the Clintons in the primaries. There may be no real good guys on the political spectrum, other than those who can find some truth.
Unfortunately for Hillary, more Americans perceive her as untrustworthy and dangerous that Donald Trump. That was unexpected!
Say hello to President Trump! And if the media narrative is deceptive as these emails reveal, at least we know enough to consider the source, and pause.
Please note both are fear-based narratives consistent with the most nefarious psyops and propaganda in politics.
A narrative, in political terms, is a fictional story that is intended to frame a candidate in a positive or negative light. In modern attacks they are conveyed by manipulative and deceptive editing of video and/or audio which is then amplified in the media. The term framing is self-evident: you are setting someone up for something they did not, or do not do.
It is the opposite of the history of a candidate, which relies on facts and records. Here, the DNC outlines the framing of Donald Trump and the narrative to be used. They also did this to Bernie Sanders, with that narrative being that he's a commie, crazy, and that his supporters are violent, "chair-throwing,"and dangerous "Bernie Bros." Remember when Sen. Barbara Boxer went on national television to announce that this concocted incident caused her to fear for her life? That was Bernie getting framed by a supposedly "impartial" DNC in a narrative spread by DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz herself.
"For your framing purposes, here's our narrative guide for how to talk about Trump:
"Dangerous Donald Trump Lacks the Judgment or Temperament to be President
"Donald Trump's recklessness would hurt our economy, diminish our standing in the world, and make our communities less safe. Trump is dangerous, and he lacks the judgment or temperament to be president.
"His impending nomination is a reminder that for years the Republican Party has elevated extreme voices, using divisive campaigns that sought to exploit unfounded fears for political gain. And just like Republicans in Washington have done for years, Dangerous Donald is only looking out for himself. His plans would benefit those at the very top and would drag our country back to where we were when the last Republican president left office losing 800,000 jobs a month. The American people can't afford to let him bully his way into the Oval Office."
