The Narcissist Smear: Know the Signs and Know the Source

There are three different tactics employed by candidates for public office: pound the FACTS, pound the LAW, or fall back to the NARCISSIST SMEAR.

But, most of the time, this ploy fails its desired outcome.

What is the narcissist smear campaign? According to Bree Bonchay, LCSW, “the narcissist uses the smear campaign for three main reasons:

  • To distract people’s attention away from the truth
  • For damage control and reputation management
  • To isolate the victim from potential sources of support

The smear campaign is a premeditated and pre-emptive attempt to harm the victim’s reputation or call their character into question by spreading lies and rumors.”

Don’t allow yourself to be distracted from the truth or to support the best choice for an office.

Seek to know the facts, to know the law, and to know the candidate.
