Gaslighting - Halifax mayor, police chief purveyors

Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 play Gas Light was made into the 1944 film Gaslight, starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. A man manipulates and emotionally abuses his wife, inventing false narratives, altering her physical world, and belittling her accurate understanding of the real world until she starts questioning her own sanity. The rise of Donald Trump caused the term to be used to explain the political upturning of reality, where up becomes down, black becomes white, and where facts are invented.
The police raids on homeless encampments in Halifax brought a parade of gaslighting from all levels. Halifax Mayor Mike Savage swore numerous lies. Police Chief Dan Kinsella held a press conference and continued the insulting parade of lies, half-truths, and obfuscations that are gaslighting. He claimed "A number of protesters were also organized. Armed with sensory irritants and projectiles." Nobody witnessed this. He also said pigs didn't interfere with the press. That is another obvious lie, contradicted half a dozen times.
The overall thrust of this gaslighting is that the city of Halifax is doing everything possible to help folks but they are violent ingrates fully deserving to be beaten and arrested for their crime of being being homeless. If one is gullible enough to believe that, these men are heroes deserving medals.
