Munchausen By Proxy?

Burning Platform

If you’ve ever heard of the psychological disorder Munchausen Syndrome, you have probably also heard of a related disorder called Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, defined as

a mental health problem in which a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care…Most of the time when you hear news stories about Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, it’s because a caregiver is caught deliberately injuring a child or other vulnerable person, such as an elder or someone who is disabled.

But what if the syndrome also affects public health officials — including the person leading the U.S. response to COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci?

Does that sound preposterous to you?

“Normal” people are horrified by stories of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.

It seems unfathomable. Why would a caregiver deliberately injure a child?

But for people prone to Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy behaviors, there are compelling psychological payoffs:

In addition, caregivers with the syndrome don’t think they’re doing anything wrong. Per the CS Mott Children’s Hospital article, people with this condition don’t see their behavior as harmful. They are literally delusional.

Where things get tricky is catching such a person “red-handed.” Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy people are notoriously good at deceiving others, including healthcare providers, family members, and friends.

If a virus is weaponized, and the jabs are weaponized, and people behind it all weaponized both in mention, would ya think they belong somewhere other than still being in any position of power? IMO, the next news story the masses what to hear, is that those behind this mess are being dealt with, right?
So why are those crazies still running around? The whole mess needs resolved, this has got to be one the stupidest stunts tried on mankind, and the many reasons given behind this evil is just as stupid, IMO!

How about we start treating criminals like what they are, wicked criminals, the only label needed to deal properly with their evil, IMO; This making excuses for strife caused by people we know did the crimes, it's absurd! Crimes against humanity were done, still being done, and yet nothing done to stop those doing those evils have yet to be done apparently, right? Get them off their perches, this is serious, and who wants to wait for more bio-weaponry to possibly be released by nut-jobs as described?
No one wants to be a chump because evil might strike again, so what is being done to throw the net over all those criminally involved in known crimes against humanity?

Hitler did go on for some time, have we not learned how History repeats itself? Hitler mini me's have popped up, so now what?
