It’s a very subtle manipulation. Many people say it takes years to get out of the gaslighter’s control.
It can almost make the one being gaslighted think they have gone slightly crazy, making them think their reality isn’t the real reality.

I wonder if the term .Gaslighting' is in homage to the 1940's film 'Gaslight' starring Angela Lansbury I think.

It’s extremely common. Many people don’t know they’re being gaslighted until they read up on it.

The right is constantly gaslighting the general public, there has been a lot written about it.

I’m a Republican. Why Is My Party Gaslighting America?

The GOP is Gaslighting America — on National Television

What is 'gaslighting'? And how does it relate to Donald Trump?
