It’s a Legally Protected Right – but you don’t see them broadcasting that much do you? They don’t want you to know that – they want you to keep their secrets!
- Leaker: When used by those in political power, ‘leaker’ is often used to imply one who releases unauthorized information is doing something wrong & possibly criminal.
- Whistleblower: The disclosing of information by an employee with evidence of a violation of law, rule or regulation; gross mismanagement; gross waste of funds; abuse of authority; a substantial & specific danger to public health or safety; or scientific censorship that would result in these forms of misconduct.”
So – they label you a leaker instead, to smear & slander you. They not only squash your rights, but try to keep you from knowing you even have them! Gaslighting is too often used to fool & confuse the masses. Enough is Enough! It’s imperative one know the difference between the two & what protection is available when they come forward:
Referring to legitimate whistleblowing as leaking gives cover to actions that support the rhetorical implication that such speech is something unlawful rather than protected.”
“The aggressive prosecutions of intelligence whistleblowers by using the rhetoric of “leakers” feeds into the narrative that whistleblowing is a crime, or a threat to national security, even though most leaks of information, & most whistleblowing, have nothing to do with national security or intelligence matters & do not involve classified information.”
Whistleblowing is NOT a crime.
Gaslighting is by far one of the worst things I’ve ever had to go through; & I’ve been through a helluva lot of fucked up shit. Gaslighting is an incredibly dangerous mind control & manipulation tool. One of the happiest days of my life was when I learned of the existence & definition of “Gaslighting.” Seriously – It’s that bad.
Be Aware. Pay Attention.
