Manipulative people will try to silence others or shame in any way that they can. Usually it is due to a deep fear of facing their own issues. They are so scared of being exposed or confronted by the ones they hurt, that they will actually turn to passive aggressive tactics. Manipulators always take offense to anything resembling resistance to their opinions. Manipulative abuser will never take responsibility for their actions.
"controllers, abusers and manipulative people don't question themselves. they don't ask themselves if the problem is them. they always say the problem is SOMEONE else" - so true for this narcissist who puts people on back burners!
