Everything Biden says re. justifying and rationalizing his behavior is exactly what I heard from the mouths of thousands of incarcerated sex offenders over the course of 11+ yrs. Predators are very predictable in terms of their actions and reactions. They are Master Manipulators
Predators will inevitably acted shocked or incredulous that someone who dare point out the obvious, will assert that it's not what it looks like, will then feign being hurt, then adopt a righteously indignant posture, then will "flip the Script", strategically inverting reality.
Once a Predator is being unmasked, he will "flip the Script", asserting that those who would be so inclined to "read into" such "harmless" behavior are the ones with the real issue; who have the dirty minds, driven by a mean-spirited agenda, motivated by hate & phobia.
Predators are skilled actors, who can appear incredulous and shocked that anyone would question their motives. They'll assert that those raising such concerns are trying to stoke the flames of intolerance & incite violence. It's a timeless tactic, from the Predator's Playbook.
In the event that they are so cornered as to be check mated, a Predator will manifest an amazing ability to invert reality, making themselves out to be the "real victim", and actually begin to gain milage from crafting a new narrative re. how evil forces are aligned against them.
What is the one advantage Predators have over people, which allows them "plausible deniability"? What is it that allows them to continue perfecting the art of deception and their skills of "sleight of hand" to continue perpetrating with ever more brazen confidence? No Conscience.
For those who have not spent thousands of hours working within prisons, in intensive clinical 1:1 sessions both in Solitary Confinement & General Population, and conducting 11+ yrs of Sex Offender Treatment, Risk Assessments, & Psych Reports, the degrees of darkness can be missed
So, what do Predators look like shortly before their arrest? What activities are they involved in prior to their arrest? What do all Predators deny doing, despite the eventual proof? What's a Predator like, when no one is watching, before finally being labeled a Sex Offenders?
Having worked clinically with the full range of Sexual Predators for 11+ yrs, I now see what I never would have saw before working with them. It makes us uncomfortable to see & label the behaviors for what they are, and that is what the Predators count on to avoid being unmasked.
So, how would I describe Sophisticated Predators? The "best" are in positions of influence, trust, power, and/or prestige, enabling them to perpetrate behind the scenes, utilizing plausible deniability, & enlist the assistance of persuasive Apologists. They are the Chess Masters.
Aside from no conscience, a primary advantage Predators have over normal people is they know that good people want to give them the benefit of the doubt. Thus, they can play them to the hilt, play them for fools, manipulate in ways that causes others to second guess themselves.
Sophisticated Predators are very adept at impression management, where they can change on a dime, adopt the type of facial expressions, tone of voice, and scripted words which will achieve the greatest impact & shut down scrutiny. But, they do have one genuine facial expression
