Narcissistic Abuse Awareness and Guidance with Randi Fine
Narcissists do not work alone. They must have enablers and flying monkeys to help them carry out their elaborate abuse campaigns.
Flying monkeys and enablers are vulnerable people who buy into a narcissist's lies and then robotically do his dirty work. Their goal is to further the narcissist's agenda. Appalled by the cruel and unfair treatment they believe the "victimized" narcissist has been subjected to, they willingly go out and fight her battles. Believing, without proof or question, that the narcissist is the victim and the victim the abuser, they ignorantly wage war on innocent people.
There is little chance of reasoning with these people. They are either blind to the truth, personality disordered themselves, or afraid to stand up to the narcissist. They may even side with the narcissist out of fear of being targeted themselves.
This is extremely frustrating to those suffering the abuse. It seems no one is on the side of the abused.

Why don't they believe the truth when they hear it?
Why can't they see through the lies and manipulations?
