Distinguishing the Bullshitter

Mademoiselle Baphomet and her cats

How to recognize a bullshitter? It’s not a mystery that the bullshitters have some qualities of character that differentiate them from the non-bullshitters. Their behavior and the techniques of social engineering they use also make them different. And although to the uninitiated, the bullshitter may appear to be a genius, in fact all bullshitters are the same, indulging in similar shenanigans inspired by the cheap and popular “Manipulation for the Dummies” psychology handbooks.

So here are the typical unique machinations of a bullshitter. Since gender equality is trendy sinister, both pronouns, he and she, will be used to ensure the fair treatment of both sexes. After all, the bullshitters come in both male and female forms.

Ad nauseam

If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth, Goebbels said. The bullshitter will repeat her bullshit over and over again, ignoring and dismissing all the arguments to the contrary. She will repeat the bullshit like a mantra or a political slogan:

Women are the victims of the patriarchy.

Women are the victims of the patriarchy.

Women are the victims of the patriarchy.

Women are the victims of the patriarchy.

Women are the victims of the patriarchy.

Women are the victims of the patriarchy…

Till everyone goes zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

Cherry-picking

The bullshitter will choose the facts and arguments that support her bogus theory while ignoring all those that contradict it. She will overgeneralize and twist facts to make her bogus point. All males are bullies. Satanism is just Might is Right. Your paradigm is all about Machiavelli etc.

Argument from intimidation

Fear is one of the basic and primal motivations behind human behavior so the bullshitter will try to scare everyone into accepting his bullshit by saying that everyone who disagrees with him is stupid and that every wise person will accept his claims. He will keep chest beating and blowing his own trumpet and at the same time trying to shame, discourage and put down his opponents. When in a relationship, the bullshitter will use emotional blackmail, threatening to leave if the victim doesn’t give in and have sex with him.

Appeal to vanity

This fairy tale sums it up:

A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree.

     “That’s for me, as I am a Fox,” said Master Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the tree.

“Good day, Mistress Crow,” he cried. “How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds.”

The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox.

“That will do,” said he. “That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: “Do not trust flatterers.”

The Devil is a gentleman

The bullshitter will pretend to be your friend. She will be very civil, kind and will appear reasonable. She will try to convince you to accept her bullshit, all the time trying to stay calm and well-mannered. But once the bullshitter’s bullshit is exposed, the following reactions can be observed:

Self-righteous indignation

How dare you accuse me of dishonesty?!!! The bullshitter will become downright hostile, if not furious. She will get either passive-aggressive or resort to shouting and direct insults.

Gas-lighting

The bullshitter will tell you that you are paranoid since you are not able to trust him.

If the bullshit is hard to be denied, the bullshitter will resort to:

You don’t know me

The bullshitter will try to downplay his machinations by diverting your attention from them, by focusing on more favorable traits of his character, on his past deeds. He will try to make you feel guilty for misunderstanding him and not appreciating the depths of his soul.

Why did you sleep with this woman? How could you?

But darling, do you remember our honeymoon? What about our love? The gifts I gave you? And flowers and hugs and kisses?

But you fucked another wo…

But honey, the bullshitter will interrupt you, it’s just nothing. It’s not important. She’s nothing to me. It was just sex, nothing more. It’s our love that matters. Why worry about such trivial things?

You’re a liar! You’ve always been a liar!

So is that all you see in me? I’m just a liar to you? How disappointing. You’re blind. If you could only see my heart and all the love I have for you, then you wouldn’t judge me by one affair. Perhaps, finally I will find a woman who will appreciate and love me for who I truly am.

And the bullshitter will start crying. Then, he will go away and find another stupid chick to play Don Juan with.

    QED re not commenting – in a rational in-depth manner based on detailed research – on O9A matters such as arrenothelus, or on the Greek etymology of the name Baphomet, or on acausal-knowing, or on esoteric chant, or on etcetera etcetera.

    As soon as I noticed “Satanists” acted in precisely the manner you described, I decided it was not worth my time associating with them. He he. Your blog is fun.
