The psychiatric term "PROJECTION"

We start off with two definitions:

PROJECTION: A defense mechanism, operating unconsciously, in which what is emotionally unacceptable in the self is unconsciously rejected and attributed (projected) to others. (

PROJECTIVE IDENTIFICATION: A term introduced by Melanie Klein to refer to the unconscious process of projection of one or more parts of the self or of the internal object into another person (such as the Democrat projecting onto the Republican). What is projected may be an intolerable, painful, or dangerous part of the self or object (the bad object).... The other person is changed by the projection and is dealt with as though he or she is in fact characterized by the aspects of the self that have been projected. (

Now, this explains a lot... Now if we apply this to the subject of civil rights or welfare or entailment... just a few things that the Democrats use to smugly point their fingers at us and say "What Bad People We Are"... or "How Mean We Are". So let us go back, just a bit... to the 1960's... Ok, it's June 1964, there is some legislation going on... and there is a filibuster...Senator Robert C. Byrd filibustered for 14 hours and 13 minutes, Democrat Senator Al Gore(Sr.) voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act as did segregationist Democrat Senator William J. Fulbright....just to name a few... But Republicans are Bad people... right? One of the only Republicans to vote against it was Goldwater. He voted against it, not because he didn't believe in equal rights, but that the implementation of the bill was unconstitutional... it was a legal mater... but when he ran for president in 1964, he was played as a racist by the democrats... so he lost, and the republicans lost the black vote ever since... all on a lie.

So by Projecting their own guilt onto the republicans, the democrats think their conscious' are clear... and they are the heroes... History keep repeating... and they keep getting away with it.
